Sunday Summary & My Week in Nails!

Hey Ladies,

Time for another summary of my last couple of weeks!

Anyones Weekend as soggy as mine? Source

1. New Job = Nicola constantly tired & grumpy!
I am officially employed again and discovered I actually enjoy not working much more than I thought I did, I miss my bed and time to do whatever I like. Of course having an actual purpose in life does brighten up my spirit, I am basically running a companies eBay account and doing the best bit which is basically organising and listing things, I get to make so many lists & the best thing is I dont have to pack orders or send them! This means that I no longer spend time on eBay it is saving me a tonne of money because it feels like work as soon as I see the home page.

2. Clothes Shopping = Nicola constantly grumpy!
Obviously new job means an excuse to buy new work clothes, well let me tell you I'm having some difficulties, my work is incredibly casual I mean I could go in my pj's and I don't think they'd a.) notice or b.) care. So I bet you're thinking that's great you can go to work in whatever. Yes & that's the problem I don't want to look too over dressed so half my wardrobe is useless and the other half is too summery because even on the hottest day my work is FREEZING! I am actually contemplating taking my fleece tomorrow! All I want is some black Converse, black jeggings and then casual tops & WARM cardigans, turns out it is impossible to get any of these apart from the Converse!

3. Nicola in Cosmopolitan & Company Magazine = Less Grumpy Nicola

Anyhoo ....

Instead of doing nail of the day posts this week I decided to compile them into a 'My Week In Nails'

Obviously enlarge to see the picture better, If I love a shade I will wear it for more than one day but I have to say I love all the nail polishes barr one this week!
1. Butter London - Aston
The most grown up nail polish I own, its a beautiful metallic dirty rose shade. Love the shade especially with another Butter London shade on my ring finger - Rosie Lee
2. Essie - Turquoise & Caicos
Seriously love this shade, it is an amazing summer shade & is really chip resistant, I wore with a coloured leopard print water decal from here.
3. Essie - Turquoise & Caicos
Two days in a row = love! I used a Mac Turquoise Glitter to create the ring finger, it was so pretty & sparkly!!
4. Illamasqua - Lament
The most loveliest neon coral ever! Total summer shade that everyone should own!
5. Illamasqua - Lament
Again two days in a row ... this time with the Zebra water decal, its such a great way to re-invent a manicure if you're a little bored with it!!
6. Illamasqua - Jo'Mina
The most amazing neon pastel purple if such things can actually be described as neon and pastel. Totally undupable and unique and again a must have. Love this shade, actually wore it for 3 days and that my friends says it all!
7. Essie - Canyon Coral
A really red toned coral, lovely summer shade but one I couldn't keep on my finger nails for more than a day, it's just too 'normal' for me I felt wrong as it just looked red in most lights & we all know I'm a unique nail polish wearer! Yawn Boring! (great pedicure shade for a holiday though)

So there's my week & nails to go with it!! Hope you've all had a lovely weekend, I have really not, got soaking wet on Friday, Saturday and Today! ah well i'm warm and snuggly in my bed with a cup of tea & ginger cake so who cares eh?
