Seeing Red

I love a good polish. When you have sausage fingers, you have to find ways of making them less, well, sausage-like. And a good polish has become the bff of my nails.

Having virtually every colour known to man, it might come as a surprise that I still get over-excited at the thought of a new polish.

But can I just say (well it's my blog, so I guess I can) that I love this Nails Inc St James red, free with this month's Glamour magazine.

I mean, I buy that magazine every month anyway, but the fact December's issue has Cheryl Cole on the cover and this freebie- well, Jo Elvin and the team, I salute you.

When I first put this on, it was more of a casual 'meh, let's see how this fares'....but let me tell you, the answer is WELL. And WOW.

Call me cheap (yes, a lot of my collection costs less than £2) but I've never had such a vibrant red that lasts so long.

So I made sure to snap up a second copy of the magazine and a spare polish. And I urge you other sausage-handed individuals to go out and do the same.

You Are GOLD

Sometimes, admit it, you find something glorious but totally garish and although you should turn your back...OH MY GOD YOU LOVE IT AND YOU NEED IT IN YOUR LIFE.

Kind of like how I feel about Rylan on the X Factor.

And definitely how I felt about this bag when I first saw it. Instantly, I had a Marmite-esque hit. Did I hate it? Did I love it?....Would I look like a Ghetto Momma? WHO CARES!

Well, turns out, I did. And with a sad face, I walked away.

And this happened like, three separate times...which is odd, because it's Primark, and usually you either get it or it's gone.

(Although maybe that tells me something about the bag...)

Anyway, it was £5 in the sale this week and I couldn't resist. Now to make it look classy...well, as classy as can look on me (LOL cakes)

And this is what I came up with. Enjoy.
