Color Club Hello Kitty manicure

Today's NOTD is a bright and playful Hello Kitty manicure in honour of my boyfriend's adorable 2 year old niece =) My bf's brother and sister in-law live in HK at the moment but they are back home in Sydney for a visit and I get to play with his niece tomorrow!! YAY!! Fun times to be had as long as she is not in a cheeky and terrible mood lol. For this mani I used Color Club She's Sooo Glam and Poptastic from my recent Color Club haul.

Hello Kitty

She's Soooo Glam is a gorgeous Barbie pink creme polish from the Rebel Debutante collection. I've been looking for a Barbie pink for so long and I've finally found it! Application however wasn't the best and below is 3 coats. The 1st 2 coats are full of streaks and bald spots! I probably could have used 4 coats but I hate the feeling of thick polish so I stopped at 3. I love the colour so it's worth the pain! It dried quickly and to a nice glossy finish too.

I used Poptastic from the Poptastic collection on my accent fingers. It's a neon pink polish and it's so bright and cheerful!! My pic doesn't capture the true neon quality of this polish though unfortunately. Application on this was MUCH better than She's Sooo Glam - it applied smoothly and evenly and below is 3 coats to ensure no VNL.

I then used China Glaze Admire to stamp full dots nail design from Bundle Monster plate BM 19. On my accent fingers I used Konad Special Polish in white to stamp Hello Kitty design from GCOCL plate A02. Then covered it all in a coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust and topped it all off with Nailene Acrylic Strong topcoat!

Here are some food piccies from dinner a few nights ago at Ikea. I absolutely LOVE Ikea and have ever since I was little - I could literally spend hours there =p The food there is cheap, cheerful and tasty even though you eat cafeteria style but that's all part of the fun.

The boy and I had a plate of Gravad Lax (salmon with dill and mustard sauce) each:

I had Swedish meatballs and chips. These are really yummy!

And the boy had stuffed salmon with chive cake:

All for under $30!! No trip to Ikea is complete without visiting the Swedish Food Market full of Swedish food goodies. I normally go crazy and get Daim chocolate (some of the best chocolate in the world!), pear cider, and soft serves amongst other things! But all I got was Lingonberry and blueberry cordial. These are delicioius and you can really taste the difference between these and supermarket brand ones.


Thanks for looking!!
