NOTD: Indie Polishes by Taras Talons and Pocket Money Polishes

The wonderful Tara at Taras Talons and Charlie at Pocket Money Polishes recently collaborated with The Cinderella Collection which was 4 sets of 2 one off polishes. I managed to get Driella and Wishing Bubbles before they sold out (in 15 minutes!) Technically because Paypal screwed up and sold these colours twice they are 2 of a kind, but the lovely Tara and Charlie mixed extra so we didn't miss out :)

Drizella is a gorgeous aqua green colour, which is one of my favourite colours at the moment. Wishing Bubbles is a beautiful mix of pastel glitter. I'm a huge fan of pastel colours and it works wonderfully with the aqua. The combination couldn't be more perfect for me. It's exactly what I would have chosen if I had made them myself so I am delighted I got hold of them!

I have linked both stores above, and if you want to find out more about any upcoming collections, make sure you check out their Facebook pages, Taras Talons and Pocket Money Polishes.

Music of the Week: Frank Turner

I have been a huge fan of Frank Turner's for years now and Tape Deck Heart, his most recent album is definitely my album of the year (so far). The latest single taken from the album is Losing Days:

I really love that he used fans who have tattoos based on his music in the video.

If you love this, you can find his album here. You can also follow him on Twitter here

NOTD: Mood Changing Polish

Recently I ordered Ylin Mood Changing Nail Polish from Born Pretty. I went with the Purple/Sky Blue colours which you can find here but there are other colours available.

The polish is quite thin when applied so I used 3 coats. A top coat is required as it chips very easily so I used OPI Nail Envy in matte as I prefer the effect not looking too glossy.

Music of the Week: Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip

Ever since the video and download of Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip's new track Stunner were made available I have been listening to it non stop. I love the bassline, and Scroobs lyrics are brilliant as always. If you are a fan of their music, you may also spot mentions of their previous material in the song, and the video.

As well as releasing the video, they also made the track available for free via their website

You can also pre-order the new album Repent Replenish Repeat which is available 7 October here.

NOTD: Pink Sparkle

This week I decided to try out my new Barry M Rose Quartz Glitter Nail Polish which I bought last week. I used Ciate Pocket Money underneath and I love the result!
