Nails #4

Friday, June 22, 2012

No nail art this time just a simple pretty pastel nail. I used Ciate nail polish. Both of which I gained for free. The pastel purple is called Bon Bon I got this free with July's issue of Marie Claire and the pale pink called My Fair Lady came free with Marie Claire last year sometime!

I'm not going to tell you how I did these nails as it's pretty obvious! I used Bon Bon for four nails and used My Fair Lady for the accent nail. I then used my trusty MUA shade 17 for the top coat.

My new discovery which I have to share with you all is L' Occitane Shea Butter Handcream. Now this handcream is a best seller and I can totally understand why. It is so nourishing but not at all greasy. Some handcreams especially cheaper ones feel really greasy on my skin but this absorbs quickly and leaves your hands silky smooth! I got this tube in my goody bag from the L'Occitane event I attended but you can buy it online or from your local L'Occitane store.

As I feeling super generous here's a 25% discount code to use on the Ciate website! The code lasts all of June and all of July so if you want to wait before you buy you can! Be sure to take a look at 25% off who could say no?
The code is MARIE25 just enter this at the checkout!

P.S If you have a spare second I would love it if you could vote for Little Paper Swans in the Cosmo blog awards. It would mean the world to me. Thank you lovelies!

  1. you have lovely nails!
    I'm not allowed to paint mine for work and they're always chipped and bitten and boring. I have nail envy :) x

    1. Awww thank you. When I worked as a waitress I couldn't paint them, it was awful! :) xx
