Another NOTD - Ozotic Pro 744

Hello there my lovelies!

How's things going with you? You all doing okay? This is another Ozotic that I received from Kenyameesha. This is a gorgeous blue/pink duochrome that I'd been lemming after for quite some time. I just want to say I'm beginning to feel rather lonely here, I really like some input from you guys, it'd be greatly appreciated! Please join in, have some fum with me, let me know what you think! Anyway, onto the Ozotic pics:

It's color number 744 as you can see in the last pic, and it's simply stunning. I've seen many Duochromes and Multichromes, but I've never seen a colour like this! Please let me know what you think! Thanks lovelies, I'll see you all soon. Stay safe.

Oh. My. God. Fabulosity doesn't cut it with this np.

I've had a wonderful ongoing swap with the amazing Kenyameesha from MUA. Pretty much all of my Ozotics I swapped with her. I got another box from her today which I'll discuss in my next post. In the mean time, I want to show you all a particular Ozotic from today's parcel. It's number 621, and it's the most spectacular red holo I've ever seen. And it really is red. Not pinky red, not purply red. It's real crimson red. In fact, I think it's the only real red holo I've ever seen. The particles in it are larger, similar to the particles in ChG Kaleidoscopes or the particles in the Ozotic High Impact holo's. I took a bunch of pics. The best part of it is that I put two thick coats on, and it dried within 2 minutes! As always my lack of camera skills fail to show the real beauty of this polish when you see it face-to-face. However, I did my best, and you get to see the results!
Without further ado, I give you Ozotic Pro 621...

I hope you enjoy all the spam! Anyway, I'd love to know what you this of this colour. I'll see you on my next post lovelys. Stay safe!

All my love.

NOTD - Nina Ultra Pro's Burnished Orange & Evening Sun

Hello my lovelys!

How are you all? You doing okay? I'm getting better every day I'm happy to say! I'm still using my walking frame, but hopefully by the time Christmas comes I'll be able to say goodbye to it for good! Anyway, the reason for todays post is to show you the gorgeous colour I have on my nails. I've had the colours for a while and I've worn them on my toes, but I never thought that they really suited me which is why I never wore them on my fingernails. Well, last night I decided I needed a changed from my normal holo's, blue's, purple's and pinks. It took a while for me to decide, but when I looked at these two colours I decided to give them a shot. To my amazement, I found that they actually suited me! I was floored, because all my life I've thought that orange looked awful on me, now I know otherwise! Anyway, here's some pics for you to take a look at. I'd love to know what you think! I really would because this is a colour that is totally out of the box for me.

The colours I used are both by Nina Ultra Pro. I used one coat of Burnished Bronze as the base colour, then one coat of Evening Sun as the top colour.  I absolutely love this brand! Even though it's cheap, the colours are highly pigmented and they glide on your nails smooth as silk. You can buy these colours from Sally's Beauty Supply for $3.99 each. Anyway, please let me know what you think!

You all take care of yourselves, stay safe and I'll see you all soon!
All my love,

Hello lovelys!

This is a 'Happy Birthday' shout out to my amazing sister Nicola Jane. She's the best friend I've ever had, and I honestly don't know what I'd do without her. I miss you so much Nick!
(For those of you who don't know, I'm an immigrant to the States. My family all still live in England, that's why I miss my sis so much) :0(

Here's a picture of her. I'm not too sure when it was taken, but fairly recently I think. My beautiful big sister,  both inside and out! I LOVE YOU NICK, SOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!

Here's a picture of Nick on her wedding day back in October of 2005. She married an absolutely wonderful man called Dom who has a heart of gold. She's surrounded by her family and her friend. Her friend is at the back to the left of the photo. Next to her is Gus my second oldest nephew, then Max, my oldest nephew. I'm standing next to Max. The smallest boy at the far right of the picture is my youngest and fifth nephew, who prefers to be known as Ironman! Next to him holding his hat against his chest is Jed(the fourth nephew), then Nicola and Dom, with my third nephew Jake on Dom's lap. Those were good times!!!

I love you so much Nick, miss you like crazy. Stay safe, and be happy darling. Hugs and kisses to every single one of you.

2nd post today!

Has anyone noticed that we are slowly but surely getting closer to my 120th post giveaway? I think not. Do I need to ease up on the rules a little? Why don't I do just that? Firstly, let me explain the giveaway. My initial reason was to both celebrate my blog, and to bring new people into it. I have no concrete prize to tell you about yet. It's not going to be a big prize, nor are there going to be multiple prizes. I'm sorry, but we just cannot afford it on one income. Some of the prize will come from my own collection. The rest will be new, and bought by me. Okay, onto new and slightly relaxed rules!

1) Must be a blog follower through both 'followers' and 'bloglovin'
2) Must live in CONUS, sorry to all the followers who live in other countries, but again, I just can't afford the postage.
3) Must post one comment on my blog, either prior to now, or before 120th post.
5) If you have a blog, you must post about my giveaway on your blog, and send me the link.
6) If you don't have a blog of your own, then I want 2 comments posted on my blog instead of one, and you must introduce one new follower to my blog who will follow through either 'followers' or 'bloglovin'. You must tell me who they are, so I can clarify with them whether them joining my blog was through you.

Personally, I don't think this is too much to ask:
-If you're already a follower, it takes 5 seconds to also join through bloglovin.
-It takes maybe a minute to post a comment. If you've already done so, then this is a moot point!
- If you're a blogger yourself it takes 10 seconds to cut and paste this post to your blog, and another minute to add an explanation at the bottom.
-If you not a blogger, just add one more minute for your second post. We all have loads of cyber pals now, it'll take you another minute or too to find someone to follow my blog. If you're reading my blog, you're already into nail polish.  If you're into nail polish, I bet my arse you're a member of some kind of nail polish forum, or club, or MUA or whatever.

Even though I know you're all busy, it's not going to take a huge chunk out of your personal time to fill the requirements!

I'm doing this for all of us. Come on people bring fun into it! Spread the news! There's nothing better than receiving free stuff!

Getting better slowly!

So, for those of you who read my last post and heard about my accident,  I thought I'd give you a little update! I'm definitely better than I was but recovery seems to take forever, and is incredibly boring.

I'm walking much better now, but I still need the aid of a walking frame, and am still rather wobbly on my feet. I find myself slurring certain words, and also find that sometimes I have difficulty manipulating the computer keyboard.

I have high hopes that within a week or so I'll be back to my old self. Fingers crossed.

All my love and for gods sake stay safe....don't pull a "Pennie-ism!" Hospital stays can be very monotonous!

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, as opposed to how I spent mine!

Hello lovelies! Do you remember that post I made a few posts back about how if there was one Polar Bear poo in the North Pole, I'd find it, slip in it, and break my bloody neck??? About how accident prone I am, and how trouble finds me? Yep, you got it!
So, on Thanksgiving I reached over (from an awkward position, I was too lazy  to take the extra step and a half!) to put the pepper away and smacked my head real hard on the oven hood. I bounced away, fell forward again and hit it hard again. As if that wasn't enough, I then fell backwards, hiting the back of my head really hard on the floor, and knocked myself out.
When I came to one or two minutes later I couldn't talk without slurring like a drunk, and I couldn't walk. I called 911, no idea HOW they understood what I was saying, but they did, and within a few minutes the ambulance took me to hospital. Long and short of it is I have spent the last few days in hospital. I still can't walk without the aid of a walking frame, but even then, not too well. My speech is better now. I'll be having physical therapy to strengthen my legs.
The moral of the story is TAKE THE EXTRA STEP WHEN NEEDED!!! Will blog again as soon as I can cos I have double vision right now, and can't see well. Be safe!

Guess what lovelies? You got it! Nail art time!

Hello darlings, I've been getting back into doing my nail art again. I think I got a little bored with it for a bit (can you believe that? Bored? What was I thinking?!) so I didn't do any for a month to 6 weeks, but now I'm back at it, and loving it more than ever. So much fun! Here's my offering from over the last few days, hope you enjoy it!

I know the umbrella one is kind of childish, but I thought it was cute, and I just had to do it! I'd love to hear your thoughts on them all. Hope you're all enjoying your week. Anyone notice winter is well and truly here, argh! I hate it! Bring on the Spring! (But bring me Christmas first, because I like getting my stocking and presents, lol!) Anyway my lovelies, be safe and I'll see you all very soon. All my love. xoxoxo

A fabulous early Christmas gift! This post is dedicated to a wonderful friend.

Hi lovelies!

I received the most amazing Christmas box from one of my friends the other day. Now I know it's not Christmas yet, but I couldn't wait to see what was in the box, so I opened it. Early.
Even though my friend had told me what she was getting for me I was completely stunned by what I saw. Sally Hansen Nail Prisms no less! Not just one or two either, but a whole box of them! I was floored by how stunning they are irl. I'd seen a couple of them prior, don't get me wrong. I'd even owned a couple of them! But this was serious business my lovelies, so much to take in. Here's some pics for you to feast your eyes upon the glory of Sally Hansen Nail Prisms.

Aren't they gorgeous? I'm so happy with them! Thank you to my wonderful friend who is always there to listen to me moan and groan, supports me through thick and thin, and sends me the most amazing gifts! You know who you are darling, and I love you and cherish you and your friendship deeply. Great big hug and a big kiss on both cheeks! I dedicate this post to you girlfriend. Our friendship will last a lifetime. Know that I'm here for you every day of every week, of every month, of every year. You're amazing. xoxoxo

The purpose of this giveaway is to celebrate my 120th post, to celebrate my lovely followers, and also to gain more followers. Most likely once you've met the rules of the giveaway, I will put all entrants names in a hat and draw one.  I'm also going to give a cut-off date shortly, but don't worry, I'll give you plenty of time! This will be my first giveaway, and I'm really excited to do it! I do have some rules, which must be followed if you want a chance to enter the giveaway.

4) You must mention my blog and blog giveaway on your blog, and you need to send me the link.
5) You need to introduce at least 2 more people to my blog, and they must become followers(again, I will check!) Obviously you need to tell me the names of the people you introduced,
6) You must post a comment here on my blog telling me you want to be an entrant, saying why you deserve to win this giveaway, and I'd like you to tell me what you'd like to see more or less of on my blog.  Also tell me your colour prefences, np finish preferences, etc(just for shits and giggles!)

That's pretty much it my lovelies! I look forward to receiving your entries. As you can see you have loads of time to fulfill the above requirements, if you haven't done so already. I look forward to hearing from you all soon!

Nail art!

Hello my lovelies! I hope everyone is happy and enjoying this gorgeous Indian summer we're having! It's hard to believe we're a week into November, it really is. Now, down to business. I haven't been doing that much nail art lately, and I really miss doing it. Over the past week or so I decided I was missing it so much that I took out my supplies and started doing some more. Like I've told you all before I'm not a natural artist so my work isn't the best, but I like to try and I really enjoy it. I now present to you my lovelies, my latest efforts. As always, any advice and critiques will be gratefully received. Anyway, here you go!

NOTD - Zoya Anaka

Hello lovelys! I hope you're enjoying this gorgeous weather we're having this weekend! I think it's absolutely beautiful out. I've just changed my mani, and I thought I'd show you all which np I opted for. I chose Zoya Anaka, which is a beautiful dark fuschia shimmer with tiny bronze or gold flecks in, I can't tell which. Anyway, here's some pics for your viewing pleasure. Tell me what you think:

So there you go, what do you think? I think it's a really pretty colour myself! Anyway sweeties, enjoy the rest of your weekend, and I'll see you all soon. In the mean time, you take care of yourselves, and stay safe. xoxoxo
