My name is Jo I am in my 20s and officially a makeup beauty Addict. I have always loved playing with makeup. However It was at the beginning of this year that I finally discovered my passion. I first got into makeup in a big way when I searched for something on Youtube. I typed in the search and found all these girls talking about and experimenting with makeup. From that day on I was hooked. I have made a couple of really good friends on youtube who encouraged me to start blogging. So as I am unable to make videos myself here I am. It's early days but I have some interesting things to come. If you have anything to say about any of my posts please feel free to leave a comment. Thanks Jo x

Nails Of The Day (hopefully week)

I thought it was about time I updated again and as I painted my nails yesterday I thought it was the perfect opportunity to do my first NOTD.

I used Nails inc Dover Street. This is a nice deep lilac mauve purple. Not quite sure how to describe it lol....Here are some photos.

I have quite a detailed nail routine so if you want me to do another post showing exactly what I do then let me know in the comments.

I also have a question. I am right handed so is it normal that I can paint my right hand (obviously using my left) easier than I can paint my left using the hand i use to write with..? I think this is just me. If you have the same issue or any tips to make my life easier please let me know because I am fedup with having 1 hand better than the other. The photos above are of my right hand.

Another problem I have is my nail varnish NEVER lasts on me. Normally I can just about make it last 2-3 days. Last time my right hand lased 4 days which is excellent for me. If it always lasted that long i'd b over the moon.

Like i said i painted my nails yesterday and I've already had to touch up my left hand. So again any tips leave them in the comments.

I have been told OPI Chip Skip is good?

I am also thinking of trying OPI Rapid dry spray between layers?

Any thoughts on anything in this post would be much appreciated.

Thanks for reading and hope you enjoyed.

  1. Pretty! That's a nice colour. :)

  2. That's a pretty colour!! To make it last, get something like China Glaze No Chip top coat. I really love it! Seche Vite is an excellent fast dry top coat, you apply it once you've done all your layers.
