I have been very vocal in my love for essie polishes. The brushes, the formula, the colours, the longevity – all absolutely wonderful. So the news that essie were bringing out their version of ‘gels’ I was intrigued to try them. Have a nosey at my Essie Gel Couture review below (plus there’s a VERY exciting new launch at the bottom of this post so keep your eyes out for that as well!)

If you follow my blog you will know that I am a huge fan of full coverage make up. My rosacea redness makes me very self-conscious and I feel more like myself when I know I can apply a full face of make up. But I know that not everyone can (or wants to) wear a lot of make up. So I have pulled together the products that would work as a rosacea cover ups for men and those who prefer a lighter look.

Whoever invented gel polish is a genius. The shine, the longevity, the ease – gel nail varnish is absolutely amazing. However, as someone who has a collection of hundreds (…and hundreds and hundreds…) of regular nail varnishes, I am always slightly put off gel nails as it feels like I’m spending a lot of money to duplicate my whole nail polish collection. When I buy a new dress or a pair of shoes I already know that I can look through my nail varnish drawers and find a match – I don’t want to have to go out and buy the exact shade in a gel format, even if it has a better finish and will last a lot longer. Then I was sent the *trumpets blare* Sensationail Polish to Gel Kit.

I meet a lot of bloggers just through going to events and spending so much time online. But it’s rare to find someone who you get on with as a person as well as having blogging in common. Mikhila is one of those people, so when she came down to London for 2 days I knew we had to do some filming together. And here’s the video: Introducing 3INA – the newest beauty brand on the block.

I have lived with rosacea for over 10 years and, for the most part, I have it under control. But I’m aware that this control is possible because I am largely able to regulate everything around me. The times when my rosacea feels out of control is when I am out of the house, on holiday or staying with friends. So here are my tips on how to help rosacea flare ups.
