Ciaté ‘Candy Cane’ and Tanya Burr ‘Midnight Sparkles’…AND WICKED!!

I am currently listening to a Spotify ad…LET ME LISTEN TO ED SHEERAN IN PEACE YOU PESKY PROGRAM.

Today I thought I’d try out my favourite Ciaté nail polish I got in week 3, which was ‘Candy Cane’, a gorgeous and vivid magenta glitter polish. At first I thought this would look great over a black nail polish, but on second thought that was a bit obvious, and I thought it would look classier over a dark mauve/purple.

Here are the polishes that I used:

Looking at the polish close up, you can see that having small and larger glitter particles make it really unusual, and I’ve never seen a polish quite like it. Also a name like ‘Candy Cane’ pleases me immensely, as we are SO close to Christmas.

This polish is quite thick with glitter, so it’s not really one that you build up. A few swipes over your base colour and you are pretty much done, so you really do get maximum impact for very little effort. I’m trying not to think about what it’s going to be like taking this off, although I am guilty of disgustingly peeling glitter polishes off because I use Seche Vite over the top (insert embarrassed emoji here).

Here is the finished product:


In other news, I went to London for Christmas festivities and shopping this weekend just gone. On Thursday I went to see Wicked at the Apollo theatre, and it was A M A Z I N G. The actress playing Elphaba was absolutely phenomenal and we had the best time.

Most exciting for me though, was that I met Gabby from Velvetghost! Her Youtube channel is massive, she has over 500,000 subscribers and she was just as nice as I expected she would be! She was chatty, said that I looked nice and we chatted about the fact that SHE WAS SITTING NEXT TO MARY BERRY.


I didn’t want to hassle her for a photo, (I’m saying this but actually I completely forgot about it) but it seemed like she had a lovely time, as did we!

Just to get you in the Christmassy mood, here are some photos of fancy London Christmas lights to peruse!



Here is a little outfit snap from Wicked as well:


Merry Christmas everyone!
