Oh, you lucky, lucky UK readers. For a while now, the blogosphere has been a-buzz with love for Diamond Cosmetics and us Brits were sadly looking on in envy. I was lucky enough to have been sent some in a swap with Kitty. But now, we can finally get in on the action!
I SO nearly made it through all eight days of my holiday without buying any nail varnish. But I failed. Towards the end of the break I took a wander into the hotel gift shop and found these beauties gathering dust on a display:
The blue was the last one on the shelf, so of course I had to have it, and the brown was too good to leave behind as well. 1.95 Euros each.
I got a couple of others but they will be in another post.
After quite possibly one of the most tiresome days at work in a long while, I was absolutely gobsmacked to log on to Blogger tonight and see my nails staring back at me from the official blog of Illamasqua.
Yes, I’ve been judged as one of the runners-up in the contest! I am so shocked and surprised as I thought the standard was so good that my Wonderwoman entry wouldn’t stand a chance.
I’m doubly pleased as the contest was judged by nail artist Sophy Robson, whose work I love, and I read her blog religiously.
Check here to see the other runner-up, and the overall winning entry. Well done ladies!
My prize is three nail polishes from the Illamasqua core range. So exciting! What to choose….?
