Models Own Ibiza Mix over Nails Inc Basil Street

I’m back! The interview was yesterday (I think it went well, fingers crossed!) so I thought I’d tart up my interview nails with a bit of glitter. I love this Models Own glitter polish, the mix of colours is perfect for summer and I particularly enjoy that it’s gold based rather than silver. I love the way it looks over the nudey colour too, sophisticated glitter if you will.

Just a side note, how strong do Models Own nail polishes smell?! Haven’t smelled a polish that strong in a while!

The lovely L of Good Morning Angel has tagged me for the Versatile Blogger Award so I thought I’d pop it in now, you have to share seven unknown facts about yourself then tag people to do it too – I’m going to cop out and just tag everyone!

1. I’m crap at  routines, my whole life I’ve tried to get in some kind of routine for various things; blogging, skincare, sleeping… I even have to consciously remind myself to remember to brush my teeth in the mornings and at night!

2. I love going places alone, especially big cities – I love to just walk around and explore at my own pace.

3. I like boys with beards and tattoos preferably, but not exclusively. Can’t beat a bit of a piratey look can you!

4. My life goal is to write a Sociology book so that students have to reference me in their essays.

5. My favourite colours are the Christmas colours, and the school uniform colours.

6. My memory is rubbish and I do nothing to help it, I always forget to make to-do lists so kind of live in a constant state of forgetfulness.

7. My favourite place in this country is Preston, now if you’ve been to Preston you’re probably thinking why?! But as soon as I step off the train there I feel at home, it’s so weird but I think it’s because I grew up there whilst I was at university. I grew as a person there, made mistakes there and most of my favourite memories have Preston in them, I can’t wait until I can go back there!

  1. :) nice facts, I can relate to a few of those.
    Love the glittery nail varnish, I really need to get me one of those, need a bit of chunky glitter in my life.

    Good Morning Angel.

    1. You most definitely do need chunky glitter in your life! Sometimes it cheers me up so much to look down and see my finger nails glistening away! xx

  2. I really like your sparkly nails - my nails are a constant disgrace so I don't even bother any more! Good luck - I hope you hear back soon.

    1. Thanks lovely, when my nails are naked they're a right state! Always have them covered up! And I hope I do too! xx

  3. I love Ibiza Mix! Nice combination :) xx

  4. Love this nail style ! So going to try it ! xx


    1. Make sure you do a post about it if you do! xx

  5. Love the nails!
    Hope you get good news from the interview soon =)

  6. Have you ever been to the King Billy in Northampton? That is a beardy, tattooed heaven :D I went in there the other night for the first time in years and all it did was revive the connection between a beardy man with a guitar and my lady parts hehe.
    We should go out one night for Northamptonshire drinks! xxx

    1. We most definitely should get on it! I need more bearded men in my life! x

  7. Wow love it! I really like chunky glitters :)

  8. The nude base is genius! I never thought about that combination, I guess I need to go get some nail polish remover and try that with my current favorite glitter "electrify" by china glaze.
