Glitter For Grown Ups

From a distance, this nail polish is bluffin' with it's muffin. Here, it's completely unassuming.

This is Bad Romance by Deborah Lippmann. Isn't it gorgeous?!

Inspired by (unsurprisingly!) by Lady Gaga, this is a black nail lacquer infused with fuschia/purple glitter. Unfortunately, I just couldn't quite capture it right actually painted on my nails and no matter which angle I tried, my camera wouldn't play ball, so I don't have any swatches for you, but the pay-off is pretty much like it looks here.


Although you can paint it over a naked nail and after 2 or 3 coats you will build up a solid black base, using more than 1 coat starts to 'blur' the glitter. So for application, I'd recommend doing your nails first with either a bright purple or black nail polish, then paint 1 coat of this over the top. Finish with a high shine top coat to keep the finish smooth & glossy.

This nail polish is available in other shades; I still have my eye on Ruby Red Slippers! Available exclusively from the House of Fraser Apothecary from £16.

  3. The owner decided after the event to donate half of
    the proceeds back to the students. I've played Nancy Drew for years and even her saccharine personality is more 3D than Lindsay or 'Linds') as she calls herself. At each house you have the hostess serve something small to eat, and host a small game.

  8. The only hurdle to accessing this is of course human limitations and the fact
    that the brain does not function solely as a learning tool
    for the human being. I believe my exact words were "I don't want to be your dirty little secret. They feature almost nightly drink specials and some form of entertainment every night of the week--DJ's, live music, trivia, you name it.

  9. If your tween is into paint-ball you can take everyone to
    play paint-ball. Even Halloween parties with the very best Halloween
    costumes can get dry after everyone's seen the costumes to be seen and passed out the candy to the beggars. Spice things up by including these Halloween-themes recipes:.
