Nail Polish Lottery Club ~ Week 6 ~17 February 2013

Hi everyone!

How did your week go? Did you have a nice Valentine’s day?

This week’s NPL club number was 41. As I don’t have 41 polishes on my list (yet!) I used 4+1=5 on my list. It is a mini OPI nail polish from the Minnie collection. Judi sent this one to me, so thank you Judi!

This color is not exactly my kind of pink – maybe it is too Barbie pink? I’m not sure what it is about it. If it is your kind of color, go and grab it, it is a good quality polish.

Here is the photo proof:

On this week’s Youtube video I show the nail polish but I also do a mini (or not so mini) rant about London renting:

And finally, I have to do this week’s shout out. It goes to Jessica from http://www.youtube.com/user/tearfallzbreak/. I discovered her channel not long before starting the club. She has an amazing personality and does great videos. You definitely have to go watch her and subscribe!

She does lots of kinds of videos including reviews, face of the day, project 10 pan and her original series “I’m a beauty hoarder”. Jessica confessed that she hoards on beauty projects but now the hoarding must stop. Here’s her latest episode:

Nail Polish Lottery Club ~ Week 5 ~10 February 2013

Hi everyone!

It’s Sunday again! That means time for another Nail Polish Lottery club post.

This week’s NPL club number was 6. Finally! A single digit number, so I don’t have to add anything up. Number 6 on my list was OPI – Your palapa or mine.

I had this polish for a while, and for some reason couldn’t bring myself to wear it. I bought it for two reasons: the name is funny and it is green.

Your palapa or mine is a beautiful spring green, not too much in your face green, even suitable for the office. Better let the images do the talking:

This week’s shout out goes to the second person to join our club.

It was Lindsay from Turning the Pages. She has both a Youtube channel and a blog with that name. Both her blog and channel are worth checking out: she does lots of reviews, tags, tutorials, and even giveaways.

You must see her nail polish collection, it is amazing:

August and September 2012 Budget update

Since I set up my make up budget rules, I have been really good and kept spending within budget.
This time, for the months of August of September I spent a little over budget.
The budget for these two months was 108£, but I spent 122£.

The full list of products I bought:

Special thanks to my dear friend Judi from whom I bought the OPI and Dior!
