My top 5... nail polishes

Hi again, 2 posts in 1 day!

I thought I would do a little series of my top 5 of different products, starting with nail polish. At the moment they seem to be mainly dark colours as I've been biting my nails a bit because of uni stress! Once they grow again I'm looking forward to wearing some bright summer colours again!

L-R Rimmel Your majesty, Rimmel Sky high, ELF Metal madness , Accessorize Aztec and Barry M Dusky mauve.

Of these my absolute fave at the moment has to be ELF Metal madness, I love the subtle multi coloured glitter in it, and it looks really cool with matte top coat too.

I seem to have a bit of a thing for metallics and interesting colours!


NOTD Rainbow!

Hi guys!

I've seen this on a few blogs recently (sorry can't remember which, if you know who or if it was you please let me know so I can link) and I thought it looked really cool.

I've never tried something like this before but i'm really happy with how it turned out.

Here's the polishes I used.

L-R 17 Fairy cake, 17 Seabreeze, Rimmel Green grass, GOSH Wild lilac and 17 Tropical Island and obviously Barry M instant nail effects (not pictured)

I used the pink as a base all over then just painted on random bits of the other colours. When it was all dry I put the Barry M over the top.

I think this is a really good idea for nail art newbies as its so easy but looks like it took ages!

unashamed begging :)

Hi guys!

I don't know if I've mentioned it but the reason for my huge lack of posting at the moment is that I'm currently in the middle of my dissertation for uni.

I decided to do an online questionnaire, which is where you lovely people can help!
If you have a spare 5 minutes I would be eternally grateful if you could fill it in. The questionnaire looks at attitudes about children's play. It doesn't matter if you have kids or not, all are welcome! And if you know anyone that would also be wonderfully nice and also help me out could you please forward it to them. I would really like to get a range of different people taking part and I think the majority of the particpants will be 18-25 females with no kids so if you know anyone that doesn't fit into these groups that would be AMAZING!

Thank you!!

My new love!

Hello again!

As soon as I saw pictures of this on blogs I knew I had to have it! If there's two things I love it's neutral eyeshadows and pretty packaging so this is perfect.

17 limited edition spring collection metallic nudes £5.49

How gorgeous!There are 6 shimmery shades and the pigmentation of all of them is really good. I'm really loving wearing the colour on the far right with UD sin for everyday.

I would definitely recommend it, the only thing that could improve it would be not to have the little sponge applicator (mine is gone already) and bigger shadows.


Stila bargain + depotting

Hi guys!

Quite a few people posted about this last week but M&M direct are doing a great offer of stila eyeshadow pans for 99p!There's still a few now if you are interested.

I ordered a few (accidently got 2 of some of the colours which are in my blog sale now)and I also spent some time researching which palettes they would fit in. Obviously they could be put in a free form palette like a Z palette but I decided to get one with spaces in it from this ebay seller

As you can see from the photos the stila pans are a little bit small so they need something to keep them in place however MUA shadows fit in perfectly!

This was my first ever attempt at depotting (I did it with straightners) and the first few broke a little bit, oopsy!

let me know if you want any swatches
