Nails, Nails Lovely Nails...

Due to personal circumstances I had to wait 5 weeks to get my nails redone, today she only did the acrylics and I painted them when I got home as I wanted to change the colours around in the next few weeks, so opted out of a gel polish this time round. Needless to say for 5 weeks they lasted quite well apart from 2 nails, I painted them black in the last week so you could not see how shabby they were starting to look lol.

But am so pleased to have them looking 100% good again, well if you ignore the mistakes when I painted them :)

The colour I have on is "Lava Lamp", I think it is an older colour so am unsure if it is still available in New Zealand. 

I try and buy animal friendly products as much as possible, and a while ago, discovered "The Color Club"  Its a shame it is quite hard to find Color Club nail polish in New Zealand, well in the areas I live it is hard to find them. I use "Natio top and base coat" which I also love.

"From swatches, to meetings, to magazine collages...there's never a dull day here.   Founded in 1979, Color Club was initially created for salons and industry big wigs.   Today, our formula remains the same, using only the highest quality ingredients.  With almost 35 years of experience in the industry, Color Club is not afraid to go into unchartered territory to bring you the most innovative and trend-setting nail colors.  From the boldest neons to the most radiant holographics, Color Club nail lacquers come in every shade under the sun. Forsythe is renowned for its exceptionally safe products - all nail colors are vegan, Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP and paraben-free - and made in New York, NY with the best raw materials. Naturally, our made in the USA products are not tested on animals".

Just went on the NZ colour club site and found this.....

Available in 60ml tubes and a 36pce display. Purple, Green, Red, Ultra Violet, Orange, Blue, Yellow, Pink and White.

OMG I am going to find this and try it, it would be awesome for just a one night out, or I can change my hair daily, or I could use Manic Panic Dye Heard hair color styling gel :)

Anyway thats it from me, if you know of places that sell a great range of colour club in New Zealand, please let me know :)

Have a nice rest of the week :)


After getting excited about colouring my hair, I remembered I had some "Fudge Paintbox" in the draw, so got the urge to colour my hair pink - it is more of a cerise pink than in the photo will get some photos in daylight tomorrow or on the weekend. When I first saw it I was in shock, but am used to it now, and by the time it washes out, my roots will need bleaching again so perfect timing :)

Oh and a plug for the lady who does my nails, if you live in the Rotorua area, check out "Get Nailed", Rochelle is brilliant :)
