Autumn has definitely arrived now. Bring out the warm jumpers, fluffy socks and...dark nail varnishes.

Rita Ora for Rimmel London: pillow talk.

Since rediscovering a pastel green polish a little while ago, I've been wanting a pastel blue one too. So when I saw the Rita Ora for Rimmel nail polishes pass by on the internet, it was the shade pillow talk that caught my eye. I decided to pick up and here's a review.

Make nail varnish dry quicker.

I am always clumsy when it comes to freshly painted nails. the varnish is usually damaged before it has even dried up properly. A good top coat should be of help here, but I don't have a good one. So apart from having the patience of a saint, here's what I do in my pursuit for smoothly polished nails.

Easter nails: a chick and polka dots.

When A. and I were painting our nails together, we were looking at some colour combinations. But when I pointed out that my yellow varnish was very Easter like, she said that I could paint eyes an a beak on it so it looks like a chick. And so I did!

Spring nails: Pistachio Ice Cream.

I don't have many pastel nail varnishes, so when I wanted to give it a try last year, I got myself an MUA £1 nail polish. I picked the shade Pistachio Ice Cream which is a pale green.

NOTD: Gold & Brown.

As you may know by now I like to paint my nails in more than one colour at a time. After a bit of nail painting with my friend A., I figured these two varnishes would make a good combo, and I still think they do.

Nail art for dummies #3.

Last weekend I decided to paint my nails and I did another attempt at "nail art". This is very much of a challenge for me. I think I just have bad fine motor skills since my handwriting is horrendous too and I cannot cut straightly with scissors. So it didn't turn out as well as I hoped for, but here it is.

Nail art for dummies #2.

Here's another super easy 'nail art' tutorial! 

Okay, paining one nail differently is not exactly nail art, but as I said: it's slightly more interesting than putting one colour on all of your nails.

Kruidvat nail polish remover.

When I paint my nails, the nail polish starts to chip after a few days or so and thus my nails start to look very unpolished! So when you paint your nails, you kind of have to have a nail polish remover too. 
The one I use is the Kruidvat Nail Polish Remover.

Nail art for dummies #1.

Here's how I did my nails two days ago. I'm not sure if it's even worthy of the name nail art, but it is definitely a bit more interesting than a single colour. If I can do this so can you!
Here's how I did it step by step:

An attempt at nail art.

Good morning!
As I didn't have much time to write I thought I'd just briefly show you my attempt at nail art.
