Jubilee Weekend!

by Lisa Heath

I’m really loving these themed group posts!  Much like my Happy Holo-day post the other weekend, the same group of bloggers got together and decided to do Jubilee Weekend because this weekend the UK will be FILLED with celebrations! The Queen is celebrating 60 years on the throne!  Each blogger participating was to pick a UK brand of polish to do up their nails in.

Now, let’s talk about perfect timing, shall we?  I got home from work today and I had a lovely package from a woman, some of you might know her :)  She is the AMAZING Tina.  Within the lovely package were 6 Ciate polishes, and since Ciate IS a UK brand, I decided to jump on these for my blog post!

I used a base of Ciate Oil Slick then used striping tape over it and a layer of Models Own Purple Blue.

Second shot at using striping tape, but the first one I’ve posted!

 Have a wonderful weekend ladies and ENJOY the Jubilee!

Love this! At first, when you said, “Oil Slick” I thought, “why would she put car oil on her hands?!” Sometimes my brunette hair has blonde moments. LOL

It’s a new beauty regimen! Haven’t you heard!? :)

Don’t worry, this brunette has the same blonde moments sometimes!

I was skeptical of it, but when I tested the first finger, I thought “hey this might actually work!

Thank you!
