Magnetic Nail Polish From Nails Inc London

My fun find in London- nail polish with cool effects named after streets and landmarks in London! They have great colors and this was the first time I had seen magnetic effects nail polish. I bought Piccadilly Circus, Big Ben, and Houses of Parliament. The names range from well known places to much more obscure street names, that only Londoners would know.

Nails Inc. London nail polish in Piccadilly Circus.

The magnetic nail polish has metal in the paint and when you hold the magnet built into the cap over your painted nail it creates a striped design. Very cool! 

Magnetic Polish by Nails Inc London is available in the US at Sephora.

Gift with purchase! 

I wish there was a nail polish named after the streets and places of New York! I am sure it is in the works somewhere! For now I will have fun playing with the colors of London! xo Lizzie

Caramel Apple Baked Brie - An Easy Fall Appetizer

It's apple time! I put together this easy appetizer and I thought I would share it it with everyone, because it turned out to be delicious! It's the perfect balance of tart and sweet. The softness of the brie goes well with the crisp apples.

Pecans or Walnuts
A Baguette

Thin slice the apples and squeeze half a lemon over them to keep them from browning. I recommend using an apple that is more tart, because of how sweet the caramel is. Bake the brie on an oven safe serving plate. Arrange the apples around the hot brie, drizzle with caramel and top with pecans. I candied the nuts but you really do not need to, I just did it to give it more crunch. I used store bought caramel sauce to save time but if you are feeling like being gourmet, knock yourself out and make your own caramel to drizzle! You could use honey as an alternative to caramel sauce if you prefer. Serve with the warmed baguette on the side for dipping into the gooey brie.


This is really simple to put together and tastes wonderful! Happy Fall! xo Lizzie
