Todays Ruffian NOTD:

I wanted to do something a little different with my nails today so I spent a few moments searching for inspiration when I came across this image of Chanel's Haute Couture nails for A/W 2012.

I absolutely love the combination of pink and gold and hadn't done a ruffian mani in a while so decided to give it a go.

I used Nailteks Foundation 2 as the base coat, OPI's Your Royal Shineness and Mod About You then finished with the ultra glossy, fast drying Seche Vite :)

Do you love/hate the ruffian trend?

Berlin There, Done That!

Welcome a new favourite polish - OPI's Berlin There, Done That from the Germany collection.

I only purchased four shades from this collection, the rest were a little shimmery for me and similiar to others I already have. I regret not picking up Don't Pretzel My Buttons at the same time, but may order that one over the next few days!

I'm absolutely loving creamy nudes and neutrals at the moment and this one works really well with my skintone. The formula is great, this was three coats but two would have sufficed :-)

Nail Of The Day and New Polish:

I rarely recreate the same nails twice. Regular colors, sure. But nail art or fancy stuff? Not so much. Todays NOTD however has quickly become a favorite of mine and this is perhaps the third time I've worn it. I knew it would go so well with my outfit and jewelry, that I couldn't resist a redo.

The gold half moon is Orly's Luxe kept glossy while the OPI Black Onyx is mattified using Essies Matte About You:

And just because Chloe decided to photobomb, I thought I'd share an image of one of my favorite polishes and my all time favorite puppy.
OPI's Ski Teal We Drop. Absolutely love this and the formula is to die for:

And last but my all means not least, here's my little OPI German haul that arrived in the mail this morning. I'm absolutely in love with all of the colors and almost tempted to try them out right now. But since it's midnight and I spent a good thirty minutes perfecting todays manicure, I think it can wait:

My Very First Knockwurst - Nein! Nein! Nein! OK. Fine! - Berlin There, Done That - Every Month Is  Oktoberfest

I am totally gutted to be missing Oktoberfest this year. It was all planned and then fell through :( Oh well. I dont like beer anyway.
