Sinful Colors is a nail polish brand new to me... I found a stand full of them in my local Boots recently and at only £1.99 each for a decent size 15ml bottle in a huge range of colours, I was sold. Even better, on the day I went in they were on a Buy One Get One Half price offer, so I got 4 of these beauties for £6...! And for once, all of these are very different shades to my other polishes, so no doubling up on colours I already have! (it has been known, naughty naughty)

Sinful Colors Shimmer in Sugar Sugar

This one is my favourite. This is not just a gorgeously rich and velvety cherry red, it shimmers with tiny tiny gold and red glitter particles and dried very glossy. I treated myself to this as I've made a real effort over the last 2 months to grow my own nails and stop biting them (it's worked, these are real for once! woohoo). I can see me getting a lot of wear out of this perfect red polish.

Sinful Colors Glitter in (L-R) Nail Junkie, Pink Glitter and Hottie

Obsessed with these glitters! Just look at the different dimensions of colour that come through. Nail Junkie reminds me of a mermaid tail, it's so YUMMY.

Swatched with Rimmel "Green with Envy" polish

This was with one coat on the accent nail, but Nail Junkie goes SO WELL with the gorgeous jewel tone of Rimmel "Green with Envy". I haven't tried these glitters full on with 3 coats yet. Although they're very thick with their own colour base, I would still use a similar colour underneath as a one coat basecoat just to give the glitter a more concentrated finish without having to put too many coats on. As they are so glitter packed they seem to dry just a little gritty, so a good glossy topcoat is a must for this polish to look as amazing as it does in the bottle. 

This is definitely the start of a new collection for me! Have you ever tried Sinful Colors?

Pink knit: New Look // Jeans + Frilly Ankle Socks: River Island
Necklace: Miss Selfridge // Skull Ring: Topshop
Tan Chelsea Boots: £19.99 on eBay

I've wanted a powder pink cosy knit for so long. I think this is the one. Such a perfect colour that matches blonde, brunette and black hair so well. I like the idea of wearing some light pastels in winter to break up all the dark stuff that fills the season. The chunky gold buckles on these bargain boots are the best bit, they make them special, pretty sure I will order these tonight. I'm going to try out little frilly socks peeking out over the top of my ankle boots this autumn/winter - so fingers crossed I can pull it off and not look like a douche ;-)

This weekend will be a good one. Things seem to be moving forward quite smoothly for us at the moment... generous family members very kindly donated their cream leather sofa and armchairs to us last week as they redecorated; we couldn't believe our luck! My parents are kindly storing it for us too so which is great. Tomorrow morning me and the Mr are meeting with the bank to discuss opening a joint account and chat about our options with regards to a mortgage. I think I have an idea of what our budget is but the more clued up we get, the better. It's my dream to buy a house... I'm watching so many Sarah Beeny shows right now it's silly. But I'm just too excited!
