LA Girl Sand Blast – Glissand

For those of you living in South Africa, the LA Girl brand is one of the few foreign polishes that are easy to find and reasonably priced. They retail for aboyt R35-R40 at Dischem.

I’ve bought a bottle or two (some were not so great), but I must say, I’m really impressed by this one! It’s the new Sand finish and it’s really impressed me. It has a beautiful, subtle glitter shimmer as well as that awesome sand texture. The colour is also absolutely stunning, it’s a deep peach which looks awesome on most skin tones. I bought the Glissand (GNL 164).




Definitely recommend the LA Girl Sand Blast polishes! 🙂


Nail Art Weekly – Week 2

It is the second week of Danni from Gingerbread Smile‘s Nail Art Weekly challenge. The theme for this week is TV or Film. I must say, I’m a bit of a TV baby, so it was quite tricky to narrow it down.

I’ve always loved Marvel comics and the Avengers movie was just too awesome to have all the characters together. So, yes, you guessed it. I decided to do an Avengers manicure. I hope you like!



Don’t forget to check out the other bloggers participating. You can see a list on Danni’s blog here.

#1 Christmas with FLP: Glitter, glitter, glitter!

Hello all you lovely people!

It’s almost Christmas, do you know how I know? Well, the first clue is the festive spirit in the air. But the dead giveaway is that everyone at work has shut down. No one is REALLY concentrating, let’s be honest. Not long now.

Part of the excitement of the Christmas season is the “Christmas With FLP” (#XmaswithFLP) Challenge that For the love of Nail Art, Polish Tickles and Beauty and I have put together.

The first prompt was glitter! I must admit, I’m not crazy about how this turned out! But I can’t wait to see everyone else’s! So here it is:

Long time no see… Join me in a challenge!

Hi all you beautiful people!

I’ve found this short-and-sweet Halloween nail art challenge posted by Racho’s Nail Love:


This challenge starts in 4 days, and it looks really fun! Who wants to join me?
