So I went shopping in town and just thought I’d do a quick post on this nail varnish I picked up. It’s by far the best sparkly red I’ve got and for a mega bargain of just £2.99!! It’s by Barry M Cosmetics.
I so have quite a few if their polished but only just got round to picking up this beauty.
What’d I you think??
Since i’ve decided to grow my nails I have been doing all sorts of nail art. I’ve actually become quite addicted if i’m honest. The latest design i’ve done are these Rhinestone tips.
I have loads of different gems and stones you can apply to your creativity but the ones I used for this design are this set shown below. I got them off eBay and they were seriously cheap. I went for a festive red and green but I thought purple and black stones would look lovely also.
First of all I put a coat of No 7 “Fickle Heart” on my nails. This is a really light pink that does have an iridescent green shooting through it.
I put a bit more than usual at the ends and when it started to get tacky is when I started to apply the stones. Depending on the nail polish I have been known to use glue to stick these stones onto I find that some nail polishes hold them better than others so it would entirely depend on what you are using.
To make it a bit easier to apply the stones I stuck some blue tack on the end of a nail pencil which I used to pick up the stones with. This is SO mush easier then trying to use your fingers, its also a lot quicker too.
When all my nails were done and the “Fickle Heart” was pretty much dry I added a big top coat of clear varnish. I used one by Leighton Denny in this example but any top coat would be fine. I put a lot over the stones to make them more secure.
Let me know of you want to see more christmas designs i’ve done a few! xxxx
So i’ve stumbled across an AWESOME brand of clothing called Bittersweet Clothing. They sell jumpers and tops from some of the best films (UP! for example) and have also a lot of psychedelic and space like items. I went for the UP! jumper, purely for the fact that I love the film and the colours in this jumper are amazing.
These two are on my next to-buy list fo’sure!
Buy them all here.
Been really really busy recently but I can however share my Christmas nails I’ve just done. Let me know if you want to see more! Xxx
So i’ve been in Manchester for a while now and I was walking through the shops only to see River Island has a sale on. I managed to pick up these wet look trousers that are SO COMFY! They come in Electric Blue, Navey, Black and Red. I picked these up reduced from £30.00 to £12.00! They are the best trousers i’ve bought for ages so don’t miss out!
Pick them up here.
So a couple of weeks ago I picked up a brush for back combing my hair, I thought i’d give it a test run before I blogged as the last one wasn’t very good. I picked this one up from boots for £4.29 and it’s a Denman one. Its actually a really good brush for teasing your hair, if you start at the roots and carefully push your hair down the bristles do a really good job without damaging your hair. The handle of the brush is really good fro sectioning hair off also.
This brush has lived in my hand bag since the day I purchased it and it is SO useful. Funnily enough if your hair is straight it also does really well unknotting hair and smoothing it out. Brilliant! See posey pics below for teased hair.
Just a quick tip if you really tease your hair, don’t brush it out. Go straight in the shower and wash your hair and it will simply fall out.
So while browsing around Selfridges I decided to treat myself to a new Lipstick. I decided to go for Illamasqua, and as I have so many strong colours I asked for a good nude. I had the choice of two- the other lipstick was more of a pinky undertone.
I love this lipstick as it isn’t too nude, but is very easy to wear it with strong eyes. The colour pay off is really nice and it has a satin feel on the lips.
Here’s the bet bit…!
It lasted nine hours on my lips! (With lots of tea’s and Cafe Nero’s in-between)! I honestly am so impressed by the staying power of this lipstick, when I got back to my Hotel I took my make up off and it has left absolutely no stain on my lips either. Ladies If you want a good nude that will last for hours then I could not recommend this more.
I’m going back tomorrow to look at other shades (wink, wink). Oh and lets not forget how nice the casing is!?
