Nailz For Dayz.

If you follow my Instagram (@LadyKaKa86 πŸ–‘)Β and on here you will see that I am a lover of fake nails/nail art and recently I’ve taken to wearing fake nails ALL THE DAMN TIME, some I’ve purchased from eBay which I paint and decorate and others have been purchased from no other than Primark. I have to say I’m really impressed with the Primark nails as they only cost between Β£1-Β£2 at that price you would think they would be flimsy and/or would not last long, however I’ve been known to wear a set for up to two weeks (!).

Now I know those you who are not into the fake nail look may class them as tacky and unpractical and you would be right, but I LOVE them and no amount of ‘how can you type with those’, ‘they are so long’, ‘I don’t like them’ will ever stop me wearing them.

I used to be into the acrylic and gels nails, but I found them to be a pain and it was a long arduous process to remove them and now a with a quick dip in nail polish remover my ‘stick on nails’ are off. I always try to have break from wearing them, whether it be for a few days or a week, during that time I make sure I get my natural nails in peak condition by buffing, applying cuticle oil and nail hardener (only for me to ruin them again I hear you cry!). I’ve seen the damage that gel and acrylic nails can do and I actually like my natural nails enough not to put them through that.

So below are some pictures of the aforementioned eBay and Primark nails and If you’re looking to wear them for one night or one week you should definitely invest in a set of fake nails, they are a hell of a lot cheaper than acrylic and gels!

I’m currently sporting the below eBay nails (which showcases a lovely fingerprint smudge).

Changing Rooms.

We (myself & J) are in the process of decorating our bedroom. We were quite ambitious when we said to our friends and family that it would only take us a week to do, not realising everything involved… Stripping the walls (Inc. ceiling), washing them down with sugar soap and that is as far as we have gotten(!) and there is still so much to do!
However, my Dad said the he would help remove the radiator, line the walls and any other DIY that we needed, although I have a feeling he will just delegate tasks!
The idea is to have the room finished by the time I start my new job (which is in less than a week), once our room is complete we are looking to make a start on the spare rooms and the ‘Man Cave/Blogging Den’. Ideally we would like the whole house decorated by the end of next year, but with a 35 year mortgage, I think we have enough time…

At present we are sleeping in the spare room and in a double bed, with 2 cats… A double bed is fine, if your on your own and have no pets that feel the need to stretch out and take up most of the space, so you can imagine that we are desperate to get our room finished.
We STILL haven’t decided which wallpaper to go with or what colour of paint to paint the walls, but I have decided that I would like 2 feature walls instead of the one.
I’m thinking, either the red or the gold as they are warm tones, I like the blue and the white, but I thinkΒ they wouldΒ make the bedroom appear cold.
