Oopsie Daises Nails

Today i want to share with you an indie brand i find it hard to believe that i haven’t shown you guys already! Oopsie Daises Nails are one of those brands that has something for everyone. Their polishes come in every colour of the rainbow! These are all very wearable shades, with a few that i would consider to be office friendly. Here is what i’m loving:

I really love this polish as i think it’s a perfect duck egg blue, it reminds me of speckled egg shells and whilst a lot of indie polishes can be similar to one another i think this is one of a kind.

I love all of the pastel glitters in this one, if you’re a regular reader of my blog then you will know i love anything pastel, bright or neon and this one ticks two out of three boxes.

I think Oopsie Daises Nails is a great indie brand and would definetely recommend that you support them!

Fourth of July Indie Polishes

As we are fast approaching July i thought i would take today to show you guys some great indie fourth of july inspired polishes! Born and raised in the UK, the fourth of july isnt a holiday i celebrate which is quite naughty considering i am half American! Naturally, these polishes all carry a red white and blue theme, so if you’re a fellow Brit you can also use these to celebrate your own national pride!

First up is this gorgeous duo by Franken Frosting

Whilst not specifically designed as a fourth of july polish i think this one still fits the bill, the cute little glitter hearts really make this polish. Here is I Love Nail Polish’s ‘Candy Gram’

OPI Couture De Minnie

Not an indie polish brand i know, but i was dying to share with you this STUNNING new collection by OPI. Inspired by Minnie Mouse ( similar to their other Minnie Mouse Collection) these polishes are delicious shades of pink and red. I love the OPI Liquid Sands and with this collection they give us another one :). Here’s a teaser:
