Guest Blogger - Shatter me Claire

Lovely readers, please welcome guest blogger number three - Sarah Claire from Shatter me Claire.

Sarah Claire makes me laugh and I reckon she's a top Aussie sheila!  Of course I've never actually met Sarah but if you have read her blog you would know exactly what I mean.  I love that she doesn't take herself too seriously, I mean look at her in this post, and this one!  And I giggle every time I read her disclaimer line which reads "Polishes were provided for review but all opinions, humour and dodgy photography are my own!".   She's a kindred spirit who isn't afraid to take the piss out of herself, and I'm sure I remember being one of her very first blog followers too.  Take it away Sarah Claire!

Hello Cathy's readers *waves* I hope you aren't missing her too much!! I've got this special pretty to show to you today to tide you over for a bit longer! It's from the Nails Inc "Little Miss" collection and this one is Little Miss Splendid.

I bought mine from but there are many other places out there to get your Nails Inc fix!! I regret not buying all the colours in this set as it's fantastic. They have the cute character on the bottle as well which is a bonus! I love Mr Men!

When I first got this I immediately thought of Essie Turquoise & Caicos [and it's dupe Essence Chasing Waves from the BBC Sunclub series] but they are slightly different.

The Essie is on finger #3 and it's a slightly lighter shade and also it's not so opaque as the Nails Inc which you can definitely notice in real life. Also the Nails Inc does have a green shimmer through it which I wasn't able to capture on camera but you can slightly see it in the bottle in this picture below

After all that I thought I'd top it off with a little stamping :) Both these designs are from the Aussie Konad Plate A1 and the colour is NYC Color in Midnight which is a dark blue and it seemed to be a better choice with this colour than black

Aussie Aussie Aussie!!!  I love this plate but don't often get a chance to pull it out and wear it but maybe I should make more of an effort as it's great!

So if you are in the market for a beautiful colour but don't yet have the Essie [or if you just like cute designs on your bottles] then it might be worthwhile checking this one out. There are other Little Miss characters in the set [I believe there are 4 in total] but they have been around now for at least a year so get hunting!!

Oi, Oi, Oi!!!  Now how did I not know there was an Aussie Konad Plate?  I'm gonna have to get that so I can rock some more Aussie nail art come January!  Thank you so much Sarah Claire! Please go an show Sarah Clarie some love over on her blog - Shatter me Claire.


  1. Love Sarah's blog & this polish looks fabulous <3

  2. I bought my Australian plate from I don't know if you can get them anywhere else.

    The plate has some non-Australian related images on it. I swear one must be a dove.

  3. This color looks great on you mate! <3

  4. Cheers guys! And yes the ICNA site is where you'll need to head but the flat rate shipping is annoying if you only buy 1 plate :(
