Haul: Joining the Cult once again

Hi again!

I’ve been quite absent for the last few days and my stash of posts waiting to be published is thinning out, mostly because of lack of time for nail art. The amount of polish bought is smaller then usual too 🙂 In Cult Nails recent flash sale I did order six polishes and they are so damn awesome.

L-R: Cult Nails’ Spontaneous, Fetish, Evil Queen, Flushed, My Kind Of Cool Aid and Annalicious.


I also bought three polishes from Gina Tricot; Lemon, Shimmer Mint and Shimmer Pink.

Holiday inspiration

Day 8 of the Holiday Nail Art Challenge and the theme was to be inspired by a holiday movie. To be perfectly honest… I don’t watch holiday movies and lacked inspiration until I found this gif from Love Actually and decided it was my inspiration. The best red creme there is was the base; Gina Tricot’s Formula One. I painted the letters with China Glaze’s Snow and HM’s Snow White.
