So this is my first every Nails of the day. I have only just got my French Acrylic that i got for showing my ring off off and decided to start trying out some of the pollished ive been buying and unable to use.
I decided to go for Essie Bahama Mama and Barry M Rose Quartz Glitter. 

These photoes are all a few days old but the polish is still not chipped at all. This is without a base of top coat (i was in a big rush).

 Because my camera is still not fixed i have had to use my phone and the photos are not the best quality but the colours are truely lovely.

Bahama Mama i think is actually i bit richer and purple than the photo, its one of my favourite polishes already. Some essie polishes (bikini so teeny anyone) get glupey and lumpy but this is not one of them, this glides on perfectly. 
Rose Quarts is not as thick as some glitter polishes but still gives great coverage (on mine it is only one coat of it) and its a nice mix of big and small glitter peices. Its a perfect glitter for bahamma mama.

 Anyone else loving these colours? What are your go to autum/winter colours?

New Yankee Candle's

I was out shopping (as per) and decided to have a wee wander into the Yankee Candle shop in the Buchanan Galleries. What i saw made me weep with joy, my favourite candles were on sale. The two that i got were the large jars and were £14 each. To be honest i have now found out that they are mostly on sale at this price online at the moment but i like buying in store, it makes me smiley :D
The large jars are 110 to 150 burning hours.  and are big enough to be a feature but not so big as to be impractical. 

Mango Peach Salsa is one of my favourite summer candles ever and im using it right now to try and cheat myself into thinking its still sunny outside. Its a very stong fruity smell but not sickly and its a georgeous colour.

I got this Mandarin Cranberry one because i really love fruity candles but they're not very wintery or cosy so i thought this smelled like a good comprimise as its fruity but also quite warm and homely.

This candle shade was soooooo pretty i just had to have it and it was only £13. My mum is always really worried about smoke coming off candles and staining the walls so this keeps her happy for m to have my little lights :) It gives off the prettiest glow when lit.

I'm really wanting to try Christmas Cookie and Pomegranate Cider.

What are your favourite candles? Anyone love these?
