Nail Art For Beginners

Finished Nail Art

I’m on a bit of a nail kick lately.  After giving my nails a bit of a break, they’ve gotten a bit longer and stronger – hooray for stick on nails – you can read my post all about the Excellent Fake Nails From ImPress.  With my nicely strong nails, I decided to do some […]

Excellent Fake Nails From ImPress

I don’t know about you, but I’m a picker.  I’ve managed to break the habit of biting my nails, but I do still find myself picking at my nails.  I tend to keep my nails painted to stop me, which does work.  Although every now and then I need to just prevent myself from picking. […]

Halloween Themed Nails

I don’t know about you but I am all about Hallowe’en this month.  It’s one of my favourite holidays!  Sadly we don’t do much to celebrate, but I still like to add a touch of Hallwe’en to my day throughout October…and maybe for a bit longer…that makes it Autumn themed right?  I’ve been testing out […]

Alternative masks – feet, hair & nails!

Now we all know I’m fan of a good face mask, who isn’t?  However when I spotted these masks from 7th Heaven at the Bloggers Festival, well I had to grab a few!  I’m regretting not grabbing more to be honest.  I have two from the Spa line – the Soften Sock Masque and the […]

May Favourites

May Favourites 2016

Shiny new favourites!  Pretty damn exciting!  OK so that might be just me, but now come on, look at them.  Shall we just dive right in?  Let’s talk about the Bobbi Brown BBU palette.  Now I know this isn’t a sensible option for everyone, however you can buy the bisque, concealer and stick foundation individually.

Glorious shiny nails with Micro nail

Micro nail

I’ve had this rather nifty Micro nail buffing tool for quite some time, I even mentioned it back in my January Favourites, about time for a review.  In a bid to keep my nails healthy, I’ve been alternating between natural nails and painted nails, this little gadget has helped ease going without any kind of polish.  […]

Empties #6 The Big Cull

More Makeup Empties

As you can probably see, I’ve had a bit of a clear out.  I’d a lot of makeup I was just hoarding without actually using it, alongside lots of  nail polishes that had gone a bit funny.   So as that’s the case, let’s just get stuck in.  I’ve quite a few Barry M nail […]

Empties #5

Beauty Empties

It’s been over two months since my last empties post, which surprised me a wee bit, but I’m rather proud of myself.  I’ve done some decluttering again!  Wee pat on the back there.  Let’s start in the bottom left shall we?  Excellent.  I’ve three Elegant Touch Express press on nails, 2 in Polished Black* and 1 […]

Beauty & Other Things Haul

Beauty & Other Things Haul

Second haul of the month, I just felt if I attempted to put it all in one post, it might be a bit much.  I think this time I’ll start with the hair products.  Just out of shot I have the Bleach London Total Bleach Kit*, I’ve already used this and already prefer it to […]

Empties #3

Beauty Skin Care Empties

I honestly didn’t expect to be posting another Empties post so quickly – it’s been almost two months since the last post, I guess time has just flown by!  Plus I’ve been doing mini purges as I’ve gone along.  I’m no longer holding on to products that just don’t work for me!  Plus I’m making […]

Spring Nails!

I was sent these lovely decals from Charlies Nail Art to try out, so I thought it about time for a fresh manicure!  Bit of a bad blogger there, not taking pictures before using the product! I’ve never used water decals before and I was so surprised at how easy they were to use!  I just […]

Travelling Manicure!

I’m currently on a much needed week long snowboarding holiday.  For those of you that follow the vlog channel, you know I’ve an injury so I can’t really go snowboarding every day.  So I thought it would be wise to bring a few things to occupy myself – I have the normal things like books, […]

All sorts of beauty haul!

I may have done a bit of shopping, mostly due to the panic over the amount of luggage I was bringing with me!  Time for travel sizes and those added extras… I got myself a few different travel containers, I grabbed the Boots Clear Travel Set* and a Boots Travel Pump Bottle*.  The set comes […]

Almost Mannequin Hands

  This week’s nails were in need of rescuing.  The main colour is Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine in Lychee.  Annoyingly this can be a pain to apply, often ending up a touch streaky.  I did manage to get a good couple of coats, but then thought my hands looked like mannequin hands!  The Barry M […]

2015 Empties #1

First empties post of 2015!  I’ve decided to do these less often and wait until I’ve enjoy products to share with you.  On that note, I do have quite a few things to share, so let’s get stuck in. Let’s start with the random shower type products. We finished a Baylis & Harding jojoba silk […]

Valentines Nails

I’m not generally the biggest fan of Valentines – well the commercial pink fluffy side, but I thought I would at least give a passing nod to it. I’ve had these nails a while and just never got around to using them, this weekend seemed like the perfect opportunity.  These are the Elegant Touch Express […]
