My Faves: Pretty Pastel Polishes

Hi Beauties

Spring is finally coming, there are lighter mornings which makes dragging myself out of bed for work a nicer experience, there are cute clothes in my fave shops that I can’t wait to get my hands on, but best of all there are pretty spring time pastel polishes,

And here are some of my faves… 

The first pretty pastel polish I want to feature in this post is ‘Apple Pie’ by Models Own, It’s a stunning pale green shade that would look lovely with a tan 



The second polish is a sky blue shade, now as many of you know I’m not really a blue nail polish kind of girl, but Maybelline’s ‘Uptown Blue’ really stood out to me, it reminds me of a clear sky on a warm sunny day, it’s simply beautiful. 



The third polish is one I really do want to try its Essie’s ‘Garden Variety’ which is part of their new spring collection, its a very unquie shade, it has the perfect balance between green and blue that creates a colour all it own that is perfect for the coming spring.



The next polish is from Rimmel’s new Rita Ora collection, not only are the bottles super cute and girly but the colours are sweet and pastel perfect, my favourite is ‘Sweet Retreat’ is a lovely blue toned pink shade and will make you look very tanned.



Thank you lovely for the beautiful swatches 

Next I’m going to move onto a polish from Revlon that has been featured in many several of my posts before, yes as you may have guessed it’s a green and no it isn’t ‘Rain Forest’. ‘Minted’ (Thanks for the lovely swatch huni) is a classic Spring to summer transition shade, that isn’t to bright to be worn day or night.



 ‘Road Rage’ from Barry M is one that I went to purchase last week, it is part of the Speedy Quick Dry collection and was impossible to get hold of, I am very disappointed that I still don’t own this gorgeous fresh green spring shade, maybe some day I will :).



Finally Ciates’s ‘Spinning Teacup’ is also a pretty pastel polish that I have featured in other posts, but I thought I’d mention it again, it’s a beautiful vintage lilac shade that suits it’s name perfectly, I can’t wait to own it.



Thank you huni for providing me with such an adorable swatch

Thanks for reading Beauties, I hope you all enjoyed this post. Are there any pretty pastel polishes that I’ve missed out? Which are your favourite shades for spring?.

Affordable Mini Makeup Haul

Hi Beauties

I hope your all well, I’m feeling the best I have in along time, plus it was pay day on Monday so I decided to get some much needed new makeup.

When it comes to makeup I’m a bargine hunter, I find cheaper brands tend to work best for me, so sadly girls they’ll be no Mac here, (I’d love to try it out and see what all the hype is about, maybe mext month).

My first new product is the ‘Romantic Efflorescence’ palette from MUA, like I need another palette, but the shades are amazing, it’s filled with beautifully vintage shades that look stunning on the eye.





My camera really doesn’t do this palette justice, but I’ll be doing another post on the palette complete with swatches very soon. I think this palette is one that will be well loved and a definite repurchase.

My second purchase is a beautiful eye pencil from Essence, a lesser known makeup brand that now has a range in my town, yay. The retractable long lasting eye pencil in ‘I Have A Green’ is such a stunning shade, it glides on beautifully, it’s super pigmented and stays put all day.



As this pencil was only £1.99, I definitely recommend this eyeliner to anyone who is looking for an expensive and unquie eye look without the price tag to match. 

The ‘Amazing Volume Mascara’ from Makeup Revolution has recently become my go to mascara, it has a rich colour and beautiful formula that doesn’t make your lashes look clumpy or dried out.





Although it makes my lashes look long and luxurious, the only down side to this product is that it dries out super quickly, but overall it’s a lovely product that I’d highly recommend.

My finale product is a face powder in shade number 1 from the brand 2True ( exclusive to superdrug), overall the brand is not one I’m fond of I find the foundation cakey and thick and the eyeshadows are crumbly and sheer, but for some reason I love their powders. This shade suits my skin tone perfectly and finshes any makeup look beautifully.



This powder is one I’d repurchase, no questions asked.

Thank you so much for reading beauties. I’m sorry about the lack of quality photos, I’m afraid my photography skills need some work.

Until next time…

Love, Hugs And Glossy Kisses,

Stunning Striped Nails 

Hi Beauties

Long time no see, I thought I’d bring you some of my fave stripped nail art.

I’ll have a makeup haul and my polish wish list coming soon I promise, 🙂

My first fave nail art is a beautiful classic design, the stunning Tiffany blue and the solo silver strip, give this design a lovely light and airy feel.



Thank you for the beautiful art

The second piece is simple pastel perfection, which is given a beautifully summery feel by the waved and creative striping. These colours look beautiful together.



Thank you for the lovely art Beauty

The next piece is beautiful, the three different shades of pink make such a lovely ombré effect nail, I think this one is my fave, perfect for spring.



Thanks for the super pretty nails 🙂

The next design is one that screams Art Deco, you know how I love my Art Deco nails, the simple design coupled with the striking contrast between the sliver, white and black give this look a very elegant look and feel, this design would be perfect for a broad room meeting.



Thank you to my lovely at glam bistro, this art is perfection

The next piece takes us back to basics with colourful pastel pin stripping, that reminds me some what of a 1940’s circus. This nail art is perfect and it really does go to show that one times less really is more, love it. 



Thank you to the style celeb for providing such pretty art work

Now my next piece is one for the colder season, although it is coming in to spring I really had to include this  piece, the stunning Cand Cane striping coupled with the stunning beautiful red and white tones make this nail art simply magical, I may have lied before I think this is my new fave 🙂 



Thank you Beauties for this Christmassy nail art edition 

And lastly I have a nail art design for the party girl in all of us, these bright neon strips on a subtle glossy background, make this nail art the perfect way to go from your workplace to drinks on a girlie night out, they’ll add a touch of zining and colour to the fullest of work outfits.



Thank you to my lovelies at the hair and beauty room for this party piece

Thanks for reading Beauties, I hoped you all enjoyed this post, leave a comment telling me which is your fave, or let me know if you’d like your stunning nam art featured in one of my posts.

Today’s mani

Hi Beauties

I hope your all doing well, I’m off work today so I have a little bit of me time which has been nice.

So I thought I’d spend some of it on today’s mani, it’s ‘All That Jazz’ from Collection 2000 (which is now discontinued) it’s a lovely slate grey shade that has a very pretty silver shimmer when the light hits it.

IMG_4467

IMG_4466

It’s the first time ive worn this polish and I really do like it, it’s opaque in one coat and it’s very quick drying.

After taking the pics I used my ‘P.S’ matte top coat on my middle fingers and this polish still looks fantastic.

I hope you enjoyed this post, I’m sorry it was a little short but I’ll hopefully be posting tomorrow and king an updated polish collection post when I get paid next month.

Until tomorrow…

Today’s mani

Hi Beauties

After much debate I decided to go for ‘Fiji’ which was so disappointing, it’s very very sheer, takes ages to dry and smells terrible, but thanks everyone for the feedback it really means a lot to me.

Today I redid my nails with MUA’s ‘Bright Pink’ after the Sinful Colors mishap, I’m hoping it’s just a bad batch because I really do like the colour. On the other hand ‘Bright Pink’ is very pigmented, opaque in one coat and is very long wearing.

Love it, a big thanks to Sarah for the fantastic pic of one of my fave polishes.

Sinful colors: Let’s Talk or Fiji?

Hi Beauties

So I started my new job last week, that’s why I haven’t really been around as much as I normally am, but a pay cheque at the end of the month mean more polish. Yay, 🙂

I need your help to decide which Sinful Colors Polish to buy….

2015/01/img_4387.jpg

Either ‘Lets Talk’ or ‘Fiji’ , they are both blue based purples, but which would you buy?

Please help

Sorry this has been such a short post but I’ll post the results tomorrow, thanks for reading and helping me decide 🙂

To Try: Rimmel Lips

Hi Beauties

As most of you know when it comes to makeup I’m an eye shadow, liner. Mascara junkie, so for this post I thought I’d mix things up by telling you a bit about my favourite lip products from Rimmel, I buy quite a few lipsticks, balms and glosses which rarely get used, the products in this post are things that I’ve been wanting to try for quite some time,

Here goes…

The first two things are from the Apocolips range, I have two of the Apocalips Lip Lacquers already and I really like them, their so pigmented and not sticky I HATE sticky gloss. ‘Atomic Rose’ and ‘Meteoric Matte’ are from the Rimmel’s Apocalips Velvet range. ‘Atomic Rose’ is a dusky shade which has a very vintage feel to it and would match my skin tone perfectly. ‘Meteoric Matte’ is a very deep red shade that still manages to be a true red, I have a feeling that once this has been applied it might make me look a little washed out, but if I paired it with a nude eye look I could get away with it. A huge thank you to Beauty dream machine for the lovely swatches.

2015/01/img_4367.jpg

2015/01/img_4366.jpg

2015/01/img_4365.jpg

The next lip product is one of Rimmel’s ‘Lasting Finish Colour Rush Balms’, my favourite is in the shade ‘Make Me Blush’, like ‘Atomic Rose’ it’s another deeper pink shade (I must have a thing for them’. Rimmel’s ‘Colour Rush Balms’ are more like a pencil than the traditional stick applicator, which I find much easier to apply, I can get a precise shape and even colour.

2015/01/img_4368.jpg

2015/01/img_4369.jpg

Then there’s the lipsticks, Rimmel’s ‘Moisture Renew Lipstick’ to be precise, again I own quite a few of these but they never get worn, I own various deep reds thinking I’ll be brave and wear them out but when push comes to shove I chicken out and in the draw my unused lipsticks remain.

‘Ringa Ringa Roses’ is another pink shade but it is slightly more blue toned than ‘Make Me Blush’ and ‘Atomic Pink’ this means it will be more vibrant on the lips, in my opinion this shade would be perfect for transitioning from winter to spring.

2015/01/img_4370.jpg

The next lipstick I wish I was brave enough to try is ‘As You Want Victoria’ to me this colour is a very classic one, this lipstick brings to mind the black and white 1950’s murder mystery. In 2015 this colour is still one that for most of us is very wearable and would be the perfect way to add a touch of vintage class to any outfit.

2015/01/img_4373.jpg

And finally Rimmel’s ‘Sloanes Plum’ is another favourite of mine which I don’t quite have the confidence to wear yet. ‘Sloanes Plum’ is a very deep purple based red, which to me adds a very gothic- Victorian edge to an outfit, I think it’s my favourite out of them all and I’m determined to wear it out one of these days.

Thanks for reading Beauties and please tell me what you think about my shift from nails, does it work or not?.

Winter Essentials 2014 Tag

Hi Beauties

I don’t normally do tags, but it’s Christmas so this time I thought why not?😚, I was tagged by the lovely The World Of Cos you can check out her Winter Essentials 2014 Tag here 🙂.

So let’s get started…

1) What is your ultimate party season lip product?

Now this is a tough one, but I’d have to say MUA’s Lipstick in ‘Wild Berry’, it’s my perfect winter shade, it’s a blue based red that goes beautifully with my skin tone, it’s a shimmer finish which means it isn’t too drying on my lips and is super cheap at only £1.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4152.jpg

2) What is your winter Essential Product?

I’d have to say my ultimate product for winter, the one I never leave the house without Is my hand cream, my hands get so dry during the winter months, my go to hand cream this year is Doves ‘Indulgent Nourishing Hand Cream with Shea Butter’. It works so well it makes my skin super soft, it doesn’t smell funny and it doesn’t feel greasy on my skin either, I love this stuff.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4153.jpg

3) What are you most hoping to see under the Christmas Tree?

I’ve had my eye on a beautiful ruby ring for quite sometime so I’m hoping to find it under the tree this year, but If not I suppose there’s always my birthday.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4154.jpg

4) Name one beauty essential that is never missing from your bag during colder months

Another beauty product I never leave the house without in the winter months are my ‘Applelicious Glossy Lip Balms’ by NYC, I currently have two of them ‘ Apple Blossom’ and ‘Apple Blueberry Pie’ they are so lovely they leave my lips so soft and hydrated and they have a super lovely scent to them as well, I’d defiantly recommend them.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4155.jpg

5) What are your winter weather skincare saviors?

For this question I only have one product as my skin doesn’t really change all that much in the winter. My chosen product is the ‘Visibly Clear 2 in 1 Mask and Wash’ from Neutrogena. I love this stuff it works perfectly well as a wash, taking away dead skin cells, getting rid of makeup and oils, but if I want a deeper clean the face mask really does the job, I leave it on for 15 minutes and when I take it off my skin feels lovely and soft and looks sparkling clean.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4156.png

6) What is winter going to smell like this year?

I rarely drink but I have a soft spot for ‘Southern Comfort Cherry’, I love ‘Southern Comfort’ and cherries on their own, so when my boyfriend bought me ‘Cherry Southern Comfort’ I was in heaven I could wait until Christmas Day and had to open it their and then :).

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4157.jpg

7) Is the Berry eye the new Berry lip?

No, I love berry lips there’s something so classy and elegant about them, in my opinion berry lips will never go out of style and berry eyes? I don’t think they’ll stick around for long.

8) What are you greatest winter indulgences?

Mmm this is a tricky one, I’d have to say run balls are one of my fave treats that I can only seem to find in shops at Christmas time, I can literally sit and eat and entire packet, lucky for me their super cheap and ultra delicious.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4158.jpg

9) Lush Christmas? Your top pick?

I don’t really use Lush products, but I’ve seen some of my Beauties blogging bout them and it’s got me wanting to try the Christmas Kisses’ bubble bar, I think I’m drawn to this one most of all because it looks like a huge Hershey’s kiss, and I’m a sucker for Hershey’s chocolate.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4261.jpg

10) Name one (or more) random winter essential.

My final winter essential has to be my ‘Glorious Mud’ face mask, it’s a clay based face mask and does wonders to my pores, I love applying it whilst in a nice relaxing bubble bath with candles burning and a good book.

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/061/65781477/files/2014/12/img_4159.jpg
