Hey guys,

Not really the best of sports when it comes to getting a manicure as I could go weeks without getting any (I am lazy like that, lol) but I just came across this great blog THE NAILASAURUS that has the most amazing nail art ever!! It makes me want to do my nails every single day. Here are some amazing-inly creative pictures from her blog.

‘OPI Number One Nemesis’

I absolutely love this metallic shade. Thoughts guys?

OPI Number One Nemesis OPI Number One Nemesis

It’s pretty hard not to know about OPI, nail polish giants, who offer a plethora of colours in tongue-in-cheek names. I decided to try out this brand by buying their ‘The Amazing Spiderman’ mini gift set that launched last summer. This set is perfect for those who like to paint their nails in quirky, fun colours.

The shade that I am wearing now is called ‘Number One Nemesis’ and it is a deliciously dark shimmering nickel shade. You can see the sparkles a mile off but they’re not tacky, the glitter is very small and delicately shines as the light hits your nails. With a rich texture that glides on easily, painting my nails was effortless and the drying time was quick. ‘Number One Nemesis’ is quite sheer though, so I applied three coats to darken the tinge of the polish.

The nail lacquer is 3.75ml – 1/8 Fl Oz…

MY 5 ABSOLUTE SPRING 2013 BEAUTY MUST-HAVES

Hey beauties,

Yes! Today I will be counting down and predicting the 5 latest trends from spring-summer of 2013. Yeah yeah, I know I live in the tropical climates where it’s summer all year-long, but where is the fun in that?! These are just some spring trends I am totally obsessed with this period and you do not have to agree with me on everything (please do) lol.

Here We Go:

1. STRIPES-ON-STRIPES: I am really not a huge fan of colour and it gets kind of monotonous sometimes but with this trend, you can switch up your look without feeling like a fool with basic black and white stripes or even wear colour that is not over-kill with these kind of patterns because they just pretty much balance you out.

2. MIDI SKIRTS: These are fabulous as they take you back to the vintage era while keeping it modern and fresh. Midi Skirts are quite tricky to pull off by the designers because these skirts have to be accurately cut at exact lenghts, but if executed properly; absolute perfection.

3. PRINTS: These amazing patterns are rocked by African women all year round and the reason is not far-fetched, they are simply aaaaamaaaazing!!! Switch up your style with prints and show a fresh new side to your fabulousness. Still not sure about rocking the print look from head to toe? Try print accessories like chic print bangles, shoes or bags.

3. LIQUID EYELINER: My spring make-up absolute must-have. This versatile make-up is just amazing this season. It comes in various types, so pick that which you are really able to work with for the look you wish. For a more fresh-faced look, refrain from lining below your eyes and just stick to lining your upper-lash line. You will thank me. ( I use Kiko Eyeliner, if you care. lol)

5. BOLD LIPS: A bold lip says a thousand words. You can go from drab, all alone at home to fab, ready for a night out with just a swipe of your favourite bold lipstick or lip gloss (I prefer lipstick, don’t ask why *wink*). not saying you shold hop on the ‘blue’ lipstick bandwagon, that’s just a little too out there if you know what I mean.
