Yesterday my matey & I had an early start & visited Stonehenge & Bath for the day on one of those Groupon thingamybobs, its something we've always wanted to do & I'm so glad we did as it was incredible. I have to say this was quite largely down to the fact that our guide David was absolutely bloomin hilarious, such a character & definitely made the day ten times better! I've fallen in love with the city of Bath, so beautiful & picturesque, we had an ace day visiting the Roman baths, exploring the streets, visiting the fudge shop, enjoying a delicious Indian lunch with stunning views of Bath, before finding ourselves in an arcane bookshop we stumbled across & spending the afternoon talking starsigns & crystals & palm reading with the lovely staff there. An exhausting but wonderful day & I deffo recommend you visit, we already want to go back!

Anyhoos! On to todays post dearies, ’twas in the mood for some purple & polka dots, you can never have too many polka dots in my world :) For this mani I dug out this absolutely delightful offering from Bourjois with an equally delightful name, Lavende Esquisse!

Apologies for the abysmal topcoat application there, I was rushing a tad O_o Lavende Esquisse is a beautiful deep lilac shade from Bourjois 1 second nail enamel range which promises easy application in one simple swipe due to the unique shaped brush & gel like formula. Because I have long nail beds & am a religious two coater I still applied a second coat to ease my mind but the brush really is fab & could easily coat most nails in one clean swipe. The finish is beautiful, glossy & quick drying too!

I decided to make this what I like to call a 'hodge podge' mani, so applied Lavende Esquisse onto my thumb, index & little fingers only, then using my favourite white NYC Pinstripe White on my middle & ring fingers, before going in with the Lavende Esquisse again, my dotting tool & adding a few large & small polka dots in a hodge podge pattern to the white nails.

Finish with a coat of topcoat, applied much better than I did & you're done! So much love for polka dots...& this pretty polish. Thanks for reading my lovelies! Till next time!

Lotsa love to ya!
