Groovy nails :)

OK so I have neglected my nails a little lately (due to uni taking over my life !! lol) so I thought it was only fair to give them a bit of TLC they deserve. So on my trip to town today I picked up some new nail varnishes from my local Boots. I bought 3 shades of 17 High Gloss Nail Polish.

The colours are Luau which is a creamy pink/peach with a slight shimmer, Ruby Slippers which is a peachy red colour with shimmer and lastly, Night Shade which is a glossy black.
There was a offer on 17 products at the moment where you buy any product and get a varnish for free (£2.79 each). Now I am always one for a bargain so I really couldn't resist this offer lol.
Another bargain I came across today was a nail gem kit consisting of:- 2 wooden positioning sticks, nail buffer and 10 variety's of gems , all for £1.00 from my local pound land lol :)

I used the black varnish today which i have to say was quite difficult to put on at first, but the result turned out to be good. I found the gems really easy to apply using the little wooden stick, and found that a clear nail varnish is great alternative to using glue and it only took around 5 minutes to apply them. I then added a top coat of clear varnish just to make sure the gems stay in place.
Hope you all agree that this look is a great quick and cheap home alternative to the salon !
