Today’s Mani: Bubble Gum 

Hi Beauties

I know I said I’d have this post up yesterday but I started watch king ‘Orange is the new black’ on ‘Netflix’ and time seemed to runaway, so I thought I’d paint them today.

As summer is coming I’m trying to move away from black in terms of the clothes I wear and I guess that goes for my polish too. 

Today’s mani is ‘Bubble Gum’ by Revlon, yes this polish is an older one that has been in my collection for years. It’s the perfect summer colour and is smell absolutely Devine. 

  
In the bottle this polish is a very pink, pink if that makes scense, but on my nails I think it has more of an orange or coral tone to it, but it’s still a beautiful colour.

   

  

Like many other Revlon polishes I’ve tried ‘Bubble Gum’ is opaque in one coat, but I alway use two, I’ve discovered it lasts longer on the nail If I use two instead of one.

Have I mentioned it’s polish smells Devine, I think I have, but it really does, not so much of ‘Bubble Gum’ but it does have a very sweet ‘eat me now’ kind of smell.

It smells so good that whenever I wear this polish I find myself continually sniffing my nails, so I’m preparing myself for the funny looks I’ll get at work tonight lol.
So I hope you enjoyed this post my lovelies, and please comment below on what you thought of the background to my pics, tacky or classy?

Fave ‘Victoria’s Secrets’ Nails

Hi Beauties,

So I had a much needed day off on Sunday, yay finally, so myself and my beautiful boyfriend decided to go to a local shopping centre, this shopping centre had a ‘Victoria’s Secrets’, I had a browse but I have other expenses this month so didn’t buy anything. 

However it did give me the idea for this post, ‘my fave VS nail art’, I figured I love pink and puppies and there’s some amazing ‘PINK’ nail art out there so why not 🙂

The first piece of ‘Victoria’s Secrets’ nail art I love is one that goes all the way, not only is the puppy super cute and pink, but these lovely hand drawn designs also include the beautiful angels logo and pink black on pink polka dots which I think really make this mani pop.

 

 

I want to say I huge thank you to The beautiful Rile for the pretty nails art 🙂

My second pick to feature in this post is a pretty gold and pink number. It’s very simple yet the two shades of pink coupled with the delicate gold lines gives this design a very vintage feel.

 For some reason this nail art design reminds me a bit of an old travelling circus or something like it, is it just me or can you see it too?

I’d love to say a huge thank you to the the beautiful Miss Evie for this perfectly vintage piece.
Although my third pick is more of s general design and it doesn’t really scream ‘Victoria’s Secrets’ as such I thought I’d still include it.

This nail art features a pretty spotty pink on pink and white on pink design. This perfect, simple and pretty for everyday wear yet it still shows the artists love of the ‘VS’ brand, not to mention the fact that it is painted with ‘PINK’ polishes.

 I’d love to say a huge thank you to Eumaquio for this pretty pink design. 

And finally I feel like this piece is perfect to end this post on as it incorporates aspects from all of the other designs to create one stunning final piece, I love the pink, the polka dots and the puppy, this design is ‘Victoria’s Secrets’ perfection.

   

I’d like to say a huge thank you to This fine artist for this stunning piece the dog is just Devine, 🙂 

That’s all for now my lovelies, I’ll be painting my nails again at some point today, so stay tuned for my mani post.

Love, Hugs And Glossy Kisses,

Today’s mani 

Hi Beauties 

Sorry I haven’t been around again, ive been in and out of hospital 😦 and yes I have yet another cold, all I want is to stay well for more than a week.

My mani today Is called ‘Seashell’ it’s a stunning Metallic shade from a cheaper and lesser known brand called Technic.



I got mine from a shop called ‘Body Care’ last year but never wore it as I often think cheaper polished are streaky and take time to dry, however with Technic I couldn’t be more wrong.

‘Seashell’ is opaque in one coat (I always use two for good measure), it drys super super quickly, faster than Sally Hansen’s ‘InstaDry’ formula.

I love it I’ll defiantly be hauling a lot more of these in the future.

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.

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.

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?.

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,
