NOTD: Winter is Coming!

Hi Everyone, 

First of all, Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American readers. I had a turkey and stuffing burger for dinner to celebrate!

Sorry this post is going to be short, I'm so tired, I've been out all day and it's 11:30 now, I'm ready to collapse! I went to an indoor play centre with one of the other mums from playgroup (and the kids obviously) and while I was there I got a text saying my son's shoes had arrived, so I had to go and get those. Rush hour traffic was horrendous on the way back so I really need to sleep. but I wanted to show you guys my nails!

For this NOTD I wanted something really wintery, and white with glitter really signifies this for me. The base colour is MUA All Nude (so they've finally started naming their shades I guess?) and in the bottle it looks off white/pale nude but on the nail it looks white to me. I picked this up in Superdrug last week, it's one of their new shades. The glitter is from the Models Own Wonderland Collection and it's called Blizzard. I'm working on swatches of this collection but as I mentioned the other day, the weather is terrible!

Photos below show three coats of All Nude, followed by one thick coat of Blizzard. I topped it off with two coats of NYC Get Up To Speed Turbo Dry Top Coat. This top coat is amazing, think I'll be reviewing it soon. 


Macro - the reflection of my camera is making the glitter looks black

The reason I don't have a natural light or sunlight photo is because there is no sun right now and the natural light was throwing off the white base. 

I think this combination is so pretty, and I love Blizzard over white! I love the blend of metallic, holographic and iridescent glitter, but I won't say too much about it because it will be part of my review on the Wonderland Collection!

MUA All Nude retails at Superdrug for £1, and Blizzard is available at all the usual stockists for Models Own where it sells for £5.

See you tomorrow!


  1. I am so sad I didnt order more MUA when I got the chance to! I got my first Models Own polish today but me being an idiot, I was there for half an hour and couldnt decide so I just got a matte top coat :P

    1. I love models own, it's the brand that I own the most of. Especially thanks to their 50% off ale, I bought 20 to add to my collection. There are some really pretty colours but my top pics are: In The Navy, Aciiied, Jack Frost, Champagne, Beth's Blue and Grace Green. But I could go on! Those are my must haves!

      MUA is brilliant, so affordable, I love to buy them just for the sake of it, they come in so handy!

  2. I love these nails, ive never fancied white but the glitter on top is so xmassy!i may have yo give it a go, i have a white nail varnish knocking about somewhere!

    boo to rush hour traffic, i get road rage!


    1. I'm not really a huge fan of white either but I love it under this glitter. This is the image of winter to me, I love it. If you don't have a white on hand, this one is from Superdrug and it only costs £1,

      Rush hour is the worst. For someone who doesn't have a 9-5 job I really don't have any need to drive in it, but every time I go out I get caught in it, typical!
