Nails of the day - 3 for the price of 1

As we had a family party last week, my sister in law Laura and my friend Victoria tasked me with doing their nails the night before it. So I thought I'd share the designs with you. Both were firsts for me, and I really loved the end result, as did the girls luckily enough!

For Victoria I did my first ever Aztec nails design. A bit of a mix match of colours and designs meant she could work her outfit around it for the next night. When she showed her nails to her boyfriend he told her they looked like Spanish pots, result!

Laura had asked me to do her a design in black and white but pretty much left the rest up to me. I decided to try out a Paisley print design, which I've been looking to do for a while. I was really pleased with the way they turned out, but decided just to do the design on her ring fingers and highlight the rest of her nails with a polka dot trim.

After spending all my time doing their nails, waiting for coats to dry etc, I ended up with a pretty boring design on my own nails! An all over pail pink with neon pink leopard print on my ring fingers. They did go with my dress though...outfit post to come! Please ignore the dodgy fake tan on my fingers. It was just freshly applied...

What do you think? Which design is your favourite?

BassBuds review

I pretty much spend my life listening to music. When I'm in the house, in the car, at the gym, you name it my iPod's usually on a constant shuffle....not in public though, my cringeworthy music collection would scare off even my closest friends! So when I was sent these gorgeous earphones from BassBuds I couldn't wait to try them out.

Now I'm not gonna pretend I'm some kind of expert when it comes to the technicalities of headphones or the optimum acoustics or anything like that, but aren't they pretty??? They come in this fabulous display box like a piece of jewellery and in a selection of amazing colours. Although I've got to admit I was chuffed to be sent this black style, they're pretty suave! But the piece de resistance is the beauty of a Swarovski crystal in each bud. I know I sound a lot like a girl here, but if they sparkle I'm pretty much sold!

Don't worry though they're not all style and no function. The headphones sound really amazing too, they come complete with various sized soft ear buds so you can choose the right pair for the best fit for you. Plus they have a wee mic so you can use them with your phone, and a button halfway down the wire so you can play and pause your music or answer calls.

Check out the full range on the BassBuds micro site.
