I Need Dollars, Dollars...NOTD, OOTD & Bling!


Hey there sweetpeas! Hope you’re all having a good weekend? Been pretty uneventful yet relaxing down this end, just spent a lot of time resting & getting back to my normal self after this joyous flu that’s been keeping moi company this past week, but thankfully it seems to be on its last legs :) Woo!

After having a sift through my polish collection, it became apparent to me that I have an obvious weakness & am particular drawn to turquoise/teal shades as I found quite a few that are almost identical in colour! Haha! But it is true, I DO adore this colour muchly, not just on the nails but in the form of jewels & dresses too as you’ll see, & one of my favourites is this polish I have to show you today, the gorguz Dollar by No7…

I’m already a huge fan of No7 polish’s, the stunning Milan being one of my favs! However this is a close runner up too. Dollar is a gorguz teal sea green with pretty turquoise micro glitters giving it the most divine shimmery finish, so pretty! Application was lovely & smooth with the help of the new improved brushes which I love & the formula is great too with even coverage in two coats. Now the most odd looking black squiggle you see on the nails there lovelies is my absolutely tres abysmal attempt at a dollar sign…thought I’d go along with the theme of the polish name ya know? To anyone who asked what the hell that was meant to be (more people than I would’ve liked) I just replied, hey it’s an arty black squiggle okay…it’s ART… now let’s move on shall we…*cough!*  ;)
The earrings pictured are one of my all-time FAVOURITE pairs, I adore them so much & receive such lovely comments when wearing them. I picked up these beauts from Southall yonks ago where you can find lots of stores selling some really quite nice artificial jewellery. I’ve dropped these countless times, losing a few stones in the process, but good old super glue came to the rescue & solved that little disaster…they go with the polish beautifully!
 Lastly the outfit part of the post & final dose of turquoise/teal action ;)  I got this dress from what is fast becoming one of my favourite places to browse, TK Maxx. A previous hater, my bestie has totally converted me in to a lover of this store having found some lovely pieces there, this being one! The dress is in fact actually a maxi skirt, which I do love wearing it as also, but cinch it up a little, whack on a crop cardi & voila! Pretty thigh length dress! Two outfits in one! :D
       Dress - TK Maxx, Cardi - H&M, Leggings - Dorothy Perkins, Shoes - Dolcis


So yup, in conclusion I think we can confirm that yes indeed…I LIKE turquoise-esque shades. A LOT.  What do you think about Dollar & teal shades? What shades are you loving at the mo? Thanks as always for reading sweets, enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Lotsa love to ya!
