What's Coming Next?!

Hi everyone,

 Sorry for the lack of posts lately, I've had such a busy few weeks, so busy that I've not even had time to paint my nails never mind blog about them! Weirdly enough, I haven't even been that bothered about having 'naked nails', and I'm sure my nails have appreciated having some time to breathe. Well, until a couple of days ago when I suddenly got a huge, uncontrollable, urge to paint them!

 This is a bit of a random post, just a mixture of a few different things and to let you know what's coming next on my blog. It's a wordy one (sorry!) so I've split it into sections.

Ciaté's Mini Mani Month:

 This advent I treated myself to Ciaté's Mini Mani Month. After a bit of a disaster with my order being cancelled, I eventually received it and have been thoroughly enjoying opening each window every morning. I've only managed to use two of the bottles so far; Encore! and Miss Mistletoe sequins. But I'm just about to put on Sugar Plum now - I couldn't wait to open this one!

Future Posts:

 I'm looking forward to having a bit of a break over Christmas, I've got a few different types of posts lined up which I'm very excited about! I've also got some posts that I was supposed to do ages ago that are still only half finished (I've been a bad blogger, I'm sorry!). These include a review of Rimmel's Nail Nurse set and a comparison of matte top coats. I'll also have December's Polish Party post, although I'm not sure what the theme is yet and some Jacava London swatches and reviews.

 I'm in the process of planning something new for my blog for 2014. I'm just trying to figure out the best way to do it. Keep your eyes peeled for some clues of what it could be!

Secret Santa:

 A group of us are taking part in a Secret Santa which I'm very excited about! I haven't received mine yet, I can't wait for it to arrive! I've had so much fun doing Secret Santa, I liked sneaking around looking for hints of things to give although I didn't really manage to pick any up! I hope my person likes it, I'll be looking out for when they receive it.


 A while ago I made my own nail polish storage box out of the box that my Sky box came in and some pretty wrapping paper.

 My polish collection has now severely outgrown it's box and I'm now looking for a set of drawers to move them all in to (although I'm telling my boyfriend the drawers are to store other things like DVDs - shhh!).

 I'm making my friend one of these for Christmas, I just need to find some wrapping paper for it now but everywhere I go there's Christmas paper!

 I've also been very kind and let my mum borrow my Jacava Midnight's Secrets polish for her trip to Berlin. I just hope she doesn't come back with an empty bottle after letting her friends use it as it's one of my favourites! A few weeks ago I told her she needs a two week 'nail break' and gave her my Rimmel Nail Rescue (which is a two week treatment). I told her that if she managed to last two weeks then I'd let her borrow Midnight's Secrets. She lasted 11 days, she said she 'just couldn't bare having no nail varnish on any longer!' - she's worse than me!!! I still let her borrow it though.

 Now this next bit is a bit strange. I seemed to have accidentally whitened my nails in the lab today. I dipped my hand into the reaction beaker without gloves on (a bit silly, I know) and then when I looked later the tips of my nails are now lovely and white! Very strange!

 So, that's enough waffling on now. Sorry for the wordy post. If you've managed to make it to the end then well done! I just wanted to keep you posted on what was coming up on my blog, it didn't feel right just disappearing for a few weeks without saying anything.

 I'm very behind on blog reading and keeping up with everyone on Twitter at the moment, so if you've got a post that you think I'll enjoy then leave it in the comments box. I'm looking forward to catching up and seeing what everyone has been up to :)

 Bye for now!


  1. I'm behind in my blog reading as well! Just catching up now! I've enjoyed reading what's coming next and will be interested to see what's coming in the new year x

    1. I've still not properly caught up and I don't think I'll get much chance now until February :( I think I might postpone my idea until the end of February and do it to celebrate my blog's 1st birthday instead :D x
