NOTD- Eyeko and Constance Carroll

After the success of my last glitter manicure, I decided to do glittery nails again this weekend, this time using Eyeko tea rose polish as my base colour:

The warmer and more muted colour of Tea rose seems to suit my skin tone better and once again, the glitter top coat instantly made the nail varnish more girly and fun.

Unfortunately, I don't think you can get Constance Carroll polishes anymore, but Barry M pink iridescent and OPI teenage dream both seem like nice alternatives if you are looking for a glittery top coat.

Which nail varnish are you wearing this weekend? Let me know if you've tried either the Barry M or OPI nail varnish :)

  11. ♥ Sadie ♥ - Thank you x

    Fiona- Thank you, the Barry M nail varnish looks even prettier in real life, but that was the nicest photo I could find online x

    LilyLipstick - Thanks, its a really nice pink for everyday wear, because its not too bright. It's a shame your nail varnish has chipped so much :( x

  12. I used to sell Constance Carroll when I had a market stall in London - that takes me back. You have such amazing nail beds you should be a hand model x

  14. When I saw the title of this post, I was thinking "do they still sell Constance Carroll?" oh man, that brand takes me back to my teens, when weekends were spent buying the brightest possible shades of Constance Carrol we could find, either from the market or in Boyes! Aaw, the good old days!

    My mum still owns Constance Carrol eyeshadows, that she claims she bought in the sixties!!! Scary thought!

  15. Kat Musselwhite - Seems Constance Carrol brings back memories for quite a few of us! It does make you think how many make brands there were that just don't exist anymore. Wow, that's seriously impressive if your mum has make up from the sixties! x
