So when browsing Glamour, Cosmo, Company and various blogs, there is one trend that is being raved about... pastels! A favourite of S/S12, there is no doubt that it is going to be everywhere! Luckily my lack of exciting colours in my nailcare basket meant that I could give the powder pink shade a try, but - as you will see below - I've added a hint of sparkle.
For Christmas I received a nail kit created by Gok Wan from Dan's family's Secret Santa; I had used it briefly at Christmas, but this was the time to really give it a go. Within the shiny pink clutch bag was a nail file, orange sticks, hand balm and nail and cuticle oil. I started by filing my nails, using the oil and rubbing in the hand balm. One of the problems I do have with my nails is that they can become dry and split on occasions, but as soon as I used the oil and let it soak in and dry, I could instantly tell the difference; my nails felt more nourished!

|Cheap and cheerful!|

I love glittery polish, especially during winter time, and this Christmas had some beautiful shades, so I thought what better way to say goodbye to Winter and hello to Spring (although it doesn't feel like it just yet) than to combine the two trends together?
I am definitely going to invest in some new polishes; which brands and shades are your favourites?
P.S. I painted my nails on Saturday night and by Monday, they had chipped! Do you know of any good top coat polished?!
