Talon-tastic.

Stress and worry effect me in many ways; during my January exams I stopped eating, in previous 'episodes' I have found myself drawing odd pictures in the middle of the night or spending my time obsessively posting on student internet forums. However, my latest stress induced craze has been nails. One of my less destructive methods of coping, I have to say.

I have decided I need more nail polish in my life, so a couple of weeks ago I placed an order at the ebay shop http://stores.ebay.com/enchantedbeautyspot  and got me some essie and OPI, because at 2am on a cold Manchester morning, it seemed like the right thing to do.


Shades L to R: Coton Island Cotton Candy, Prima Ballerina, Mod about you,
St Lucia Lilac, My private Jet & Naked Truth

Now I know what you're thinking 'Well Miss Taylor, what a dazzling array of colours...'cos you didn't just buy 5 polishes that are all a very similar pastel shade now did you....??' Ok, ok so they are somewhat similar, aside from my private jet, but a girl can never have too many pastels. After all, they are bang in trend, darrrrrrling.


Now as ever my iphone doesn't take the most flattering of photos, so you'll have to trust me when I say thet St Lucia Lilac is my new favourite nail polish of all time. FACT. It's not surprising seeing as it's rather similar to MAC's cool reserve which did hold the top spot in my collection. This girl just can't get enough of her purple-esque shades...


Not to mention the formula of Essie polishes is just divine; no streaking, dries quickly and doesn't chip. Superb.

So who else is obsessive about nails right now? What colours have you drooling at the mouth, and do you recommend any other e-bay shops?

I have similar problems with stress and anxiety and they usually led me to shopping a little bit compulsively...
I am curious about those student internet forums...

Love all those colours, I had a manicure a couple of weekends ago with Essie St Lucia Lilac, such a nice Summery shade.

I never used to be a fan of pales and nudes on the nails, but recently I can't get enough. Lovely colours :)

I'm still stuck on coral... I do need to expand my nail varnish collection though, I only have two colours at the moment! Just because I've only recently stopped biting my nails and actually had something to paint...
