Posh talons & another award nomination!

Happy Friday!

I've been looking for a tiny funnel to use when I make my own polish and found caviar manicure sets in Primark, with a funnel included! Each set was only £2.50 and included a polish, a bottle of caviar beads and the funnel. I bought one in each of the three colours they had (I just couldn't choose!).

They are really easy to use, the set is packed in a plastic box then in a cardboard box - keep the plastic packaging! Paint your nails with the polish, you can use one coat or two. While it's still wet, hold your finger over the plastic box and shake on the caviar beads. Pat them down until they are stuck firmly and just lightly tap your finger on the plastic to shake off any excess. Put the funnel in the bottle of caviar and tip the excess beads back in. Ta-Da! Posh nails ;)

The sets I got are; black polish with black beads,  baby pink polish with pink beads and white polish with multi coloured beads.

The bottles are quite big considering the price and the bottle of caviar is full up.

The colours of these polishes are lovely and they apply well in one coat so you get a good colour showing through the caviar. They also hold the beads well.

I used the white polish and multicoloured caviar first because it's SO pretty! It reminds me of those chocolate buttons with the sprinkles on top.

Go posh and Get Nailed ;)

My Questions for you:

1. Where are you from?
London! but I live in the North East now

4. What do you do for a living?
I'm hoping to become a qualified nail technician!

Studs and spikes!
