Weekly Nail: Easter Eggs

Recenlty I was inspired by a post from Bellabox on facebook to create lovely pastel nails with a lot of my polish stash. I've managed to try this a couple of times, as you can see from my 'my life in pictures' post from last week. I'm totally in love with doing my nails like this and I still have so many ideas so you haven't seen the last of it yet!!
 I used OPI Italian Love Affair on my thumb, middle finger and spots on my ring finger, Ulta3 lollypop lilac on my pointer, Essie Bikini So Teeny on my ring finger and spots on my thumb, and the bright pink from my Ulta3 mini's set in be mine. I used a bobby pin to get the polka dots, which I think worked quite well.
I've really been loving using Bikini So Teeny and Lollypop Lilac when I'm doing my nails, and this combination especially reminds me of Easter! I also feel like I'm finally getting somewhere with growing my nails. I know, they're still very short, but they feel stronger! The skin around my nails is very irritated at the moment for some reason, so I think a lot of moisturising is in order.I'm still being really boring lately. Really all that's been happening is work, and I've been picking up as many shifts as I can get. I've been really lucky managing to cover shifts for people lately, so I've been stressing about money less. I managed to get some money exchanged to pounds this week too, because the exchange rate is definitely in our favour at the moment (£0.69 per $1 AUD) and hopefully it can stay that way for a while, haha. I'm going to exchange some Euro's soon for traveling too! There's just over 2 months till we leave, which means I'm going to have to start thinking about packing up my room (because I'll want to move out soon after I leave, and so my parents can use my room for whatever while I'm away, haha) and think about what I want to bring with me! I'm also thinking about selling some stuff on ebay (mostly clothes) and maybe have a blog sale for some of my makeup (although it's not really worth anything so I'd be better off just giving it away). I also want to do a lot of baking before I leave because I don't know how much baking I'll get to do in England, and I'd love to do some posts here about what I'm baking (I'm planning on baking a Malteser and Frangellico cheesecake soon!) I've also joined bloglovin' so feel free to follow me there if you haven't already imported all your contacts due to the impending doom of no more google reader/gfc. I'm not actually sure what's going to happen when google reader gets shut down, nor do I really understand/like bloglovin' but I thought I'd give y'all the option!

  6. Cute! How do you get your ulta3 to look so flawless? I picked up a couple the other day and they keep coming out really streaky :(

    1. Luck? I've never had problems with ulta3 being streaky, but I usually do 3 coats. Maybe put more product on your brush?

    2. I will try that! Levi painted my toes the other day with an ulta3 and it looks fine so maybe I am just hella herpy :P

    3. UPDATE it was just the ones I had tried were kind of pearly and they were real streaky. I've got a bunch of other ones which are fine. HOORAY.
