The inevitable & uncomfortable first post


For the longest time I've wanted to start a blog but unfortunately never really owned the motivation/courage/time/things to write about! But now summer's come and I have endless amounts of spare time to fill before starting university in September. My days so far have literally been spent trawling the internet looking at other people's beauty & style blogs and it's made me pretty jealous. They own so many incredible things!

I know I'm going to be rubbish at this, partly because I don't have the budget for it, but for now here's a nail polish I've had for a while. This shade is called Lemon Meringue and it's pretty appropriate for this sunny weather, plus I'll buy anything pastel.

Models Own are great for their colour variations, but I do think they have a little bit too much in common with Barry M nail polishes (the funny 'thick-yet-thin' consistency). I had to put on 3 coats for this shade and it tends to gloop around the cuticle while remaining thin in other patches, yet because of the colour I still think it's great. Models Own always has decent staying power, and I use OPI Rapidry Top Coat (£13.25) to try and prevent chipping.
