Nails: Coffee, Cream and Rose Gold

I realised that I haven’t done a nail look in ages, in fact I haven’t really done much with my nails in ages apart from paint them one colour so, to make myself feel better, I decided to give it a bit of a go and try some dots and lines. Mainly because I just had no idea what I was going to do when I started out so starting with them as a base is always easy to build on rather than specific shapes.

I think I might need to get better at naming nail looks, I am so bad when it comes to naming anything really but I think this one fits given the names and colours I used. As I’ve also had a bit of a play around with the three Gelologoy formula Ciate polishes I used in this nail art I thought I’d do a mini review of each of them as they do seem to work very differently.

Review: OPI When Froggy Met Piggy

In my recent purchases I said I bought this When Froggy Met Piggy set of two OPI nail varnishes in TK Maxx. I’ve recently been loving my rose gold jewellery and the glitter in this has a very rose gold look which caught my eye. I did buy the mini five set that they released when the Muppets Most Wanted collection was released though it didn’t have Gaining Mole-mentum in. I am a big fan of the Muppets so this was one of the OPI collections that I really wanted to like though there weren’t really any in that set that impressed me but glitters tend to be a safe bet as opacity isn’t a problem as it’s just bits of glitter in a clear base.

The two nail varnishes in this set are called Kermit Me to Speak and Gaining Mole-mentum. I do love the names of the OPI varnishes, I like how they’re normally puns and still within the theme though they don’t always have anything to do with the colour of varnish. This set was £9.99 in TK Maxx, though I can’t find it on their website there are quite a few other duos when you search OPI. There was at least one other Muppets one in the store and a few of the other pairs, mainly the ones with the tints or gems in them and a few of the pale shades pairs too.
