NOTD ...

I don't usually do Nails Of The Day looks but I really like the way my nails turned out today so I thought I would do a little post on them :) I really struggle with my nails splitting and flaking so they never grow very long at all. I used to bite my nails when I was younger and even though I broke the habit ages ago my nails have never grown much, so I apologise for my nails not being particularly glamorous. I'm always so envious of those people with gorgeous, long nails. Anyway, I used my Sally Hansen maximum growth daily nail treatment as my base coat and then used Topshop's Mermaid 201 with No7 Stay Perfect Glitter Top Coat in Silver on the tips. 

L-R - Sally Hansen Maximum Growth, Topshop 

I really like this nail look, especially the glitter on the tips, because I think it is subtle but who doesn't love a little bit of glitter??? The Topshop nail varnish is £6.00 whereas the other more simple nail varnishes from Topshop are £5.00, which I think is a reasonable price for a really nice nail polish. Like many other people I really like the Topshop packaging, I think the spots are really cute, and the size is pretty reasonable for the price too. The No7 glitter nail varnish is a limited edition one and cost £8.00 but I had a cheeky £5 off No7 voucher so I got it for £3 :) You've gotta love those £5 off vouchers!
