Hello my dears!
I love getting to know people a bit better, and since I saw this tag floating around, I thought I'd join in on the fun (even though I wasn't actually tagged!)

A. Age:
I'm 23. Geez that's old isn't it? I'll be even older when September rolls around. I wish I could just stop aging!!

B. Bed size:
I have one of those King Single beds, the ones that are bigger than a single, but smaller than a double. I'd love to have a bigger bed, but to be honest a bigger one wouldn't fit in my tiny room!

C. Chore you hate:
I hate washing dishes.. and doing the laundry.. I hate most chores to be honest. The only one I like doing is vacuuming! :P

D. Day:
Sundays and Mondays! They're my days off, I love knowing that when I wake up on a Sunday or Monday morning that I don't have to rush around and get ready for work. It feels amazing!

E. Essential start to your day:
Breakfast! I have Ricies everyday, sometimes followed by fruit. I don't think I could function
without it.

F. Favorite color:
Purple, has been ever since I was a kid. I absolutely love wearing a purple smokey eye..

G. Gold or Silver:
Silver. Or white gold. ;)

H. Height:
I'm tiny! 5' 4" on a good day. Hahaha.

I. Instruments:
I used to play guitar.. and I still have two guitars but they don't get any love these days.

J. Job title:
Pharmacy Assistant and Freelance Makeup Artist.

K. Kids:

L. Live:
In New Zealand!

M. Mom’s name:
Lisa. I love my mummy <3

N. Nicknames:
Kitty and Diddle are the main ones, but I honestly have so many..

O. Overnight hospital stays:
Not sure what this means exactly? Never stayed overnight in hospital, but have been rushed to hospital in an ambulance before (from anaphylaxis).

P. Pet peeve:
Hmm.. probably rudeness. If you don't have manners, then I really don't want anything to do with you.

Q. Quote from a movie:
"I'm going to take a pillowcase and fill it full of bars of soap and beat the shit out of you!" - From Step Brothers, one of my favourite movies. Hahaha <3

R. Right or left handed:
Righty! I'm so intrigued by people who are left handed..

S. Siblings:
I have a younger sister, Camille, who is also my best friend. I love you <3

T. Time you wake up:
Work days - 6.45am. On my days off, I wake up whenever, but it's usually early cause I very rarely sleep in late.

U. Underwear:
Is this a boxers or briefs question? I like to have fancy underwear, but it's not really practical for everyday. Hahaha.

V. Vegetables you dislike:
I hate tomatoes (yeah, yeah they're a fruit.. whatever) and don't like capsicums or corn much either.

W. What makes you run late:
To be honest, I'm never really late. Sometimes I muck around and forget what time it is, but am rarely ever late to anything.

X. X-Rays you’ve had:
Wrist and ankle... and teeth years ago.

Y. Yummy food you make:
I'd say cookies... and Feijoa cake! Yum!

Z. Zoo:
My house is a zoo! We have a million cats and dogs and a bearded dragon. Why so many? My mum breeds Persian cats and my sister breeds Swedish Vallhund dogs. It's actually pretty awesome, because everyone knows baby animals are the cutest! <3

That was fun! Now I tag YOU! I'd love to see everyone do this :D
Thanks for viewing!

Review: Glittergal 3D Holographic Nail Polish

The lovely Kerry from Glitter Gal was kind enough to send me a holographic nail polish for review. I received the colour ‘Copper’ from their 3D Holographic collection. At $11.95AUD, these are very reasonably priced.

I received this early last week and was dying to try it out but was too busy with work and other commitments, so it sat on my table just waiting for me to use it. It comes in a 9ml bottle, I was definitely surprised at how small it was but I actually prefer it. I’ve had so many nail polishes over the years go all gross and gluggy because I haven’t been able to use them all. So to me, these being on the smaller side is nothing but beneficial – and they’ll take up way less room if I use them in my kit.

The formula itself is a beautifully smooth consistency – it applies like a dream! The first coat was quite sheer and a little streaky, but the second coat fixed that up nicely. The holographic effect is sooo intense! As I write this my nails are glittering beautifully in the sunlight that’s streaming in through the window. It is seriously gorgeous. I actually can’t stop admiring my nails. :P

Here are some photos:

Isn’t it gorgeous?!
I’m so impressed with this nail polish, I am actually dying to get my hands on the other ones in the collection now. Especially the black and silver ones! And how cool would these look with a konad design over them?

Check out these amazing nail polishes at their website, I assure you, you will NOT be disappointed!

Thanks for viewing!
