NOTD: Bearest Of Them All by OPI, over Sloane Sreet by Nails inc...

So Valentine's Day...
For that classic Valentine look on my nails should I go for red or pink? How about something with heart-shaped glitter in? Should I try to be clever and combine all three elements?

I picked out half a dozen different polishes for my traditional mani, but I then narrowed it down by using polishes that are still readily available cheaply online - and I've also provided links for you to use.

Lets see how well the image that was in my head turned out on my nails...

NOTD; Bad Romance by Deborah Lippmann...

I'm not feeling very romantic and cute today, so allow me to show off a anti-Valentine mani for Valentine's Day week.
Yes - the name had a more then a bit to do with why I bought today's Spotlight polish, as I'm a big Lady Gaga fan and that song in particular is one of my faves. Take that name for a black based polish, and toss in fuchsia glitter = my perfect polish. 

Doesn't it?

Truly outrageous: Pinkissimo semi-permanent hair dye by Renbow...

Crazy Color semi permanent hair dye in Pinkissimo is a ready-mixed vegetable dye, that 
Renbow says lasts between 4 to 8 washes, and for the low price [RRP £4 per 100ml pre-mixed bottle] I thought that you can't really complain with that.
Lets take a look back at my recent flirtation with this Jem-style pink hair dye shade, withphotos of how well the colour holds up...
My hair is really thick so 15 minutes developing time (the guide on the bottle) is totally wrong for me; I left the dye on my wet [but not shampooed] hair for an hour to let it 
really sink in [it's vegetable dye so you won't damage your hair], and I then rinsed my 
hair until the water ran clear, but didn't use shampoo, conditioner, or any other products on my hair for two washes after the first rinse.
My hair is a few inches past my shoulders and is thick/coarse, and I use 1 1/2 bottles per full-head application.
(In my photos there are a few spots that are lavender toned:  this is because 
some old blue dye was stubbornly 
left clinging to my hair, despite the two lots of the strongest-Boots-had hair lightener I used to try and get rid of it. The colour mismatch was not caused by the Pinkissimo hair dye.)
