A Few Changes 

Hi Beauties

Firstly work has been manic, I now work 7 days a week and have very little  me time, hence the lack of posting, for which I need to apologise once again. 

Secondly I’m trying to change my lifestyle or the better, I bought a Fitbit and love it to… Well bits, it’s really motivating me to loose weight and just live a healthier lifestyle all round.

If anyone wants to join me in my journey, please feel free.

Love, Hugs And Glossy Kisses,

Todays Mani And Thank You :)

HiBeauties 

I’m finally beginning to feel better, I was going to post a picture of myself, but I don’t look as well as I thought I did :).

Today’s mani is Sinful Colors ‘Winter Berry’ which is a purple based brown shade with a silver shimmer to it, it’s super pretty, I just wish I would have used it sooner. I’ve had ‘Winter Berry’ since November last year and this is the first time it’s been opened, as you can probably tell I’m loving grey and brown toned polishes which is  strange for me I’d normally go for red or pink.



A huge thank you to Project Swatch for the stunningly beautiful… Swatches.

Since spring is upon us (most of us) I thought I’d jazz up my mani a little, for this I used I glitter top coat from London Girl.



It’s a lovely polish with both hex and circle shaped glitters, combined with green and sliver micro glitters, it really makes my mani pop.



Please excuse the Shockley horrible nails I’m in the process of growing them out again.

I hope you enjoyed this post Beauties  and thank you so much for all of your lovely ‘get well soon’ messages they really do help.

Love, Hugs And Glossy Kisses,

Tagged: You’re It

Hi Beauties

I was tagged (or more like I asked to borrow the questions :)) by the lovely Harriet from Harriets Beauty Box , it’s an amazing blog so sophisticated and professional, love it and I really recommend you check it out.

So here goes question one…

1) Is your hair naturally straight or curly?

I’d say norther, my hair is plain frizzy even when I’ve straightened it it’s still untameable, if anyone can recommend any good anti frizz products it’d be much appreciated.

2) Do you dye it yourself or go to the salon?

I tend to dye my own hair, a) a salon is way too expensive and b) I’m getting quite good at doing it myself, (note to self ‘buy hair dye’.)

3) Do you wear the same style everyday, or do you switch it up?

In all honesty it depends where I am and what I’m doing if I’m at work I wear my hair up, it’s just easier but if and when I’m off work I’ll style my hair depending on my mood.

4) Do your own mani/pedi or go to the salon?

Lol no, again way too expensive for me, and with the amount of polish I own there’s no need for a salon, I love doing my own mani’s I find it very relaxing, I don’t do pedi’s I HATE my feet.

5) How often do you change your nail polish

I used to change my polish three to four times a week, now I’m working I don’t really have time to paint my nails which is sad, so I change it up once or twice a week.

6) Do you polish your toes in the winter or just the summer?
Never ever

7) How long does it take for you to put your makeup on?
About 15 minutes I only really wear eye makeup and maybe lipstick or gloss, I hate the feeling of foundation on my skin.

8) What do you do first face or eyes?

I’d have to say eyes, obviously since I don’t really do my face, I love s darker eye with a nude or Rose pink lip, I think it looks lovely.

9) Do you collect makeup or just buy it?
I guess a bit of both, I buy makeup to wear it and really don’t, so then does it become a collection? 🙂

10) How often do you wear false eyelashes?

Never, I find them fiddly to apply and most of them just don’t suit me.

11) Do you do full face makeup everyday?

Very rarely, and if I do its for a night out or a special occasion, I try to have as many minimal to none makeup days as I can, I have really bad skin.

12) Do you wear makeup when you’re home alone or with family?

Yes I do, I like to play around with new looks after all practice makes perfect.

13) Will you leave the house without makeup?

Yes I’m glad to say that now I will, if you’d have asked me ten years ago I’d have broken down crying, God I sound old 🙂

14) How many high end products do you own?

Does revlon count?, lol none ive been jobless for nearly a year but that’s all going to change very soon, at least I hope.

15) Do you plan your OOTD every night or decide when you get ready?

I try to plan my outfits the night before but I rarely stick to it and often just throw something on, I really don’t own that many clothes.

16) How often do you change your handbag?

It depends on what I’m doing, sometimes I really can’t be bothered with a big bag and just stick to my smaller quilted handbag, but it really depends on the situation.

17) What time do you wake up and go to sleep?

On a weekday I wake up at around 6ish and go to sleep and around 10ish, again age Is kicking in, 🙂

18) How often or when do you work out?

I aim to workout around two to four times a week, but especially in winter I get CBA syndrome and it rarely happens.

19) Left or right handed?
Left 🙂

20) Do you speak any foreign languages?

Not anymore, I used to love speaking Italian when I was in high school it was one of my favourite subjects.

21) How tall are you?
5’1 😦

22) How many pets do you have?

None, I’d love a sausage dog or a chinchilla.

23) How often do you blog?

I used to blog daily, but now I’ve started work again I aim to bring my Beauties content at least two to three times a week.

24) Do you read comments?

Yes I do and I try to answer each and everyone of them, I love it when my Beauties takes time to read and comment on my blog, it really does mean the world to me.

25) Do you keep a list of products to try that you see in a post?

Yes I keep a list in my phone, it’s mainly for nail polish but I’m branching out more into makeup and other beauty products, I love seeing what other people are using.

26) How did you come up with your blog name?

I don’t really know, I guess it’s a polish blog so varnishing point 10, your finger nails are the 10 points on which you put varnish??? I really don’t know, I just wanted something a little more creative.

27 ) What kind of camera do you use for your photos?

My iPhone 5c it’s not perfect but than again neither am I.

28) How often do you clean your house?

I try and do little bits and prices everyday that way it doesn’t become over whelming.

29) What’s your favourite colour?

Red, pink or emerald green their such pretty colour, and most of the polishes in my collection fall under one of these colours.

30) Do you swear?

God yes, a lot lot more than I should, oops.

31) What are you doing for the rest of the day?

I’m going to have another cup of coffee and get ready for work.

I hope you all enjoyed this post Beauties, I tag all who want to do it. They’ll be more reviews, likes and hopefully collection updates coming soon, thanks for reading.

Love, Hugs And Glossy Kisses,

Polish In December

Hi Beauties

Now that January is here, I can do a polish in December post. These are the polished I wore throughout the month of December, it was pretty busy for me so there aren’t as many as I would have liked, but here goes…

The first polish was ‘Star Watch’ from Revlon, it’s a magnetic polish with a deep brown based purple undertone to it, the magnetic effect this polish gives is really quite lovely, thank you to rougebeauty for the perfect swatches.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2015/01/img_4343.jpg

My second polish to adorns nails in December was Rimmel’s ‘Cupcake Pink’it’s quite a sheer baby pink shade with very good lasting power.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2015/01/img_4344.jpg

‘Full Metal Jacket’ from NYC is one of my all time fave metallic polishes, it’s cheap and has such an amazing shine. A huge thank you to kittynoir for the stunning swatches.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2015/01/img_4346.jpg

‘Ginger Melon’ from Revlon is another fave of mine, some people might say it’s purely a spring/ summer colour but I wear it on my nails all year round, it’s a very bright orange based pink that smells lovely once it’s dried, although the scent didn’t stay on my nails for as long as it normally does, I dunno why :@, a huge thank you to kickarseredlips for the lovely swatches.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2015/01/img_4347.jpg

The finale polish I wore in 2014 was another one by Revlon, it’s such a fantastic brand I love love love their formulae, unlike NYC’s ‘Full Metal Jacket’ which has a very subtle rose gold tint to it, ‘Silver Dollar’ is a true silver shade with a pretty shimmer finish, a big thank you to macyxmakeup for the beautiful swatches.

And a massive thank you to all of my Beauties who read and support my blog, you really don’t know what it means to me. I hope you enjoyed this post, they’ll be plenty more for 2015 :).

Love, Hugs And Glossy Kisses,

Christmas Haul 2014

Hi Beauties

Now that Christmas is over and done with and before we get back to normality, I thought I’d do my Christmas haul. I’ve seen lots of YouTubers and blogger do them so I thought I’d jump on the band wagon, so here is everything I got on Christmas Day,

The first thing and perhaps the thing that will be my most treasured item besides my Pandora bracelet is my beautiful peridot necklace, I love it it’s elegant, stunning and so special to me.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4315.jpg

The second thing is another jewellery item from the Alchemy Gothic website, I’ve been a fan of their stuff for years, you can find some really unique and interesting pieces. My earrings are defiantly interesting, they’re cherries with skulls in the centre of them, each skull has two little wicked red eyes and a nose which I don’t think we’re picked up by my camera very well. I love them and I’ve worn them everyday since Christmas.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4334.jpg

Now I’m not much of a drinker but my two favourite drinks in the whole world are Baileys and Southern Comfort, but this time it got even better I got Chocolate Baileys and Cherry Southern Comfort, they both taste amazing and were pretty much gone on Boxing Day.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4317.jpg

Staying with the gothic theme I received a lace and chain choker which I adore, I love the fact that it’s super simple yet it will still make a statement and dress up an outfit.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4309.jpg

Ive needs new hair straighteners for the longest time, I got new ones last year but the heating element in them keeps going. So this year I got Nicky Clarke straightens, they’re amazing they do I beautiful job at making my hair poker straight and super sleek, the only down side to them is that they don’t have a temperature control so I have to be extra careful when brushing my hair through.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4307.jpg

The next two presents were little things that have a lot of meaning behind them, the 8 ball my boyfriend bought for me to help me make decisions, and the cup is such a great idea I love coffee and now when I’m drinking my morning cuppa I’ll think of my beautiful Jay :).

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4308.jpg

The next present is perfect for me as I’m always super cold no matter what month it is, this lovely fleece is super big, it comes down to my knees, super warm and it makes me feel like a sheep 🙂 bbah

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4306.jpg

As you may or may not know I LOVE COWS and I have no idea why, but my Jay and a friend of mine both got me cows. Although they didn’t cost a lot
they both mean so much to me, 🙂

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4305.jpg

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4319.jpg</a

The same friend who got me the cute cow also got me a lovely braided leather bracelet, it has five strands, two of which are braided, one has an infinity sign, the other a pretty tree of life and the finale strand has cute birds which I think are swallows but I’m not too sure, I’ve yet to wear it but I’m sure I will very soon :).

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4318.jpg

My finale gift was one that I have been eyeing for awhile, it’s a green vest top with an awesome ouija board print, lace skull patterned back and big bows on the straps, I think it’s from jawbreaker, as soon as I opened it I changed into it and wore it for the rest of Christmas Day,

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4335.jpg

I got the pic of the top from ebay, as mine was in the wash.

I hoped you enjoyed my Christmas haul and I hope it wasn’t too late.

Love, Hugs And Glossy Kisses,

Revlon’s Star Attraction

Hi Beauties

Sorry I haven’t posted for a while I’ve been super busy preparing for Christmas and net connection issues haven’t helped my cause either :(.

But I’m back :), my last mani was Revlon’s ‘Star Watch’ I loved it so much that I feel inspired to do a post about the complete Revlon ‘Star Attraction’ magnetic nail polish line, so here goes…

Firstly there’s ‘Reality Star’ it’s a stunning emerald green shade and by far my favourite of the collection, yes all of my Beauties know I have an unhealthy obsession with green nail polish and red polish and pink polish…

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4162.jpg
Pic from the lovely polishinsomniac thanks lovely 🙂

Next there’s ‘Pop Star’ which is a cool metallic toned blue shade, I actually quite like it regardless of it being a blue, this shade is one that would really compliment the super icy cold weather most of us are having at the moment.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4164.png
Swatch curtesy of the lovely kalynlord 🙂

Next we have ‘Starry Eyed’ which is a very vibrant rich purple laced with super pretty flecks of bright pink and gold micro glitter, in my opinion this polish looks Devine and it looks even better thanks to the beautiful swatches from the lovely VampyVarnish this is a polish that would be perfect to ring in the new gear whilst still sticking to the dark and often romantic feel that winter brings.

‘Star Watch’ is the only one from the ‘Star Attraction’ collection that I own, it’s a very deep purple, so deep in fact that in some lights the polish itself can have a coffee brown tone to it. Never the less as you can see from the swatchit is a beautiful polish that is made to stand out even more by the lovely ‘star’ effect the magnet makes.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4165.jpg

And finally ‘Star Crush’ is a very pretty copper shade, with very small flecks of gold micro glitter, the combination of copper and gold isn’t very star like but very beautiful all the same.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4169.jpg
The amazing swatch above is from itsallprettytomethanks again lovely. 🙂

I love this collection so much I think if I were to buy more I’d purchase ‘Reality Star’ and ‘Star Crush’. But they’re all stunningly eye catching polishes perfect to add that little glint of something extra special to your mani this holiday season.

Love, Hugs And Glossy Kisses,
