Skincare Shake Up Bumper Edition!

I somehow managed to miss March’s Skincare Shake Up completely. I’m very sorry – no one noticed – so I’ve decide to combine March and April’s products into one massive Skincare Shake Up bumper edition! So if you’re a fan of skincare, or looking for some new recommendations, look no further…

It’s a long one so get comfy!

essie Spring 2016 Collection

I don’t know about you but I am so ready for Spring. Lighter evenings, leaving scarves at home for the first time in (what feels like) forever and, more excitingly, COLOUR. I don’t tend to follow the rules of shades in certain seasons but I am already finding myself leaning towards the brighter and lighter side of things. Which is why the new essie Spring 2016 Collection* has made such an impact on me.

Read on for my thoughts on the collection and your chance to win the whole set

Nail challenge: Day 25 – ‘Inspired by fashion’

Good evening 🙂

Today’s theme was ‘Inspired by fashion’ and I immediately thought of the below top by Balmain. It is so beautiful I would consider selling my own mother to get it.

I did 2 coats of white polish (Rimmel) and applied fast-drying top coat (ORLY Sec ‘n’ Dry). I then used 17’s ‘Fury’ and some strategically-placed tape to achieve most of the straight lines. I used a tiny paintbrush to freehand the rest.

I applied another layer of top coat and then used my favourite glitter polish (Models Own ‘Judge Jools’) and a spotting tool to go over the gold.

The above pictures are artificial light as the glitter showed up better in that for some reason. I took the ones below in natural light.

For my right hand I did 2 coats of the white polish and then topped with one layer of the Models Own glitter. It looks so Christmassy!! I love it!!

(Again, first pic in artificial light, no flash, and second pic in natural light)

Nail challenge: Day 9 – ‘Rainbow’

A quick explanation. I did the manicure at the bottom of this post first but didn’t like how it came out (need more sponging practice I think!) so did another raimbow themed mani. I attached both as it’s all experience, right?

Welcome to my first attempt at Galaxy nails! I am so pleased with how they turned out.

They’re pretty fiddly and messy but when something looks this pretty at the end of it, I figure it’s worth it.

I took pictures throughout so might do a tutorial of sorts, if that’s something you guys would be interested in seeing?

Thanks for dropping by, you’re all stars *groan*
