Swarovski Haul

Over the past month or so I have been lucky enough to have collected a few of the fabulous Swarowski pieces that I have had my eye on.

The first piece I have picked up is a ring that featured in my first Most Wanted back in August last year. It took a bit of tracking down but I have eventually found it in my size!

Swarovski Lullaby Star Ring

This next piece also featured in a Most Wanted back in October but it was unavailable in any of my local boutiques :( so I gave in and ordered it online.

It is huge, extravagant, glitzy but I love it. Obviously its not for everyday wear and I will probably only get to wear it once of twice a year, but I will treasure it forever.

Swarovski Mimosa Pendant.

This last piece I cannot find online anywhere, it was in one of my local boutiques on sale (50%off Yay!) and my boyfriend picked it out for me, but I was trying to be good and foolishly said "no." and then I couldn't stop thinking about it, so at the weekend we took a trip into the city to pick it up. I'm so glad we did, I think this will become my new everyday pendant.

January Most Wanted!

Michael Kors Watch (MK5060)

How gorgeous is this watch? Swarovski encrusted Michael Kors no:MK5060.

I first fell in love with this watch after seeing it on MissJenFabulous' Twitter and Christmas haul, and I wish I had ordered one straight away, but sadly I didn't and now can't find the silver one anywhere.

I'm hoping that like so many other things it will be released in the UK much later than the USA and I will be able to pick one up! If not I will have to settle for the gold but as most of my jewellery is silver I really would like it to match. *Fingers crossed* I can find it before my Birthday.

Swarovski Maestro Blue Ring

Can you tell I have a crazy obsession with Swarovski???

NOTD - Illamasqua Muse

From Illamasqua 2009 Sirens collection, Muse is a really pretty dark turquoise, almost teal shade, and despite being from the summer collection I love it for this time of year. It is bright enough to cheer me up on a rainy day, but not too summery to look out of place in the gloomy post Christmas period.

This is my first brush with this brand of polish, and it is love! application is beyond amazing, far superior than any brand I have used before. The colour is opaque in one coat, the polish is perfect consistency, isn't too thick or gloopy. I just wish it came with OPI's pro wide brush.

I am really impressed Illamasqua and I can't wait to try more of your fabulous products!

*off to see what I can find in the ASOS sales*

NOTD - Cheers to you

This polish was so pretty it deserved its own manicure. Its simple gorgeous!

This is 2 coats of Cheers to You, but really I could have got away with just one! the formula is really good, really opaque and super shiny and reflective.

Cheers to a New Year!

Happy New Year everyone!

I wish you a happy, healthy 2011.

To welcome in the new year heres my first mani of 2011 - a ruffian.

I think it is safe to say my favourite nail look from last year was the ruffian, and since I first tried it on my nails I think I have been obsessed. I loved the look and the colour combination of the navy and gold together, so much I have struggled to find a combo I like as much.

But luckily on a trip to Sally's I found these beauties, and on sale too! - Cheers to you and Jolly Holly from China Glaze's Naughty but Nice Holiday Collection.

I just love the bold silver showing through under such a dark, dark green. Gorgeous! I see I will get many uses out of this silver, its stunning and fairly unique in my collection.
