Rimmel: Your Majesty 

Hi Beauties

I know I haven’t posted for over a month but I just haven’t had the time, I may be shutting this blog down I haven’t decided yet, what do you think I should do?

I painted my nails today for the first time in two months with Rommels ‘your Majesty’ it’s a beautiful sliver shade that is part of their ‘I love lasting finish’ range.

   
   
Not only do I love the colour, but it is opaque in one coat which is perfect for when I know I have a busy day ahead, ‘Your Majesty’ is the perfect way to add a bit of interest and sparkle to a more casual outfit.

What do you think of Rimmels ‘Your Majesty’ do you love it or hate it?

Thanks for reading Beauties, until next time (if there is one) 

Love, Hugs And Glossy Kisses

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: English Rose

Hi Beauties

First of all I’d like to thank all of you for the lovely likes and comments on my post ‘Starting YouTube’, I still do have research to do and maybe a camera to buying depending on how well my iPhone holds up, if all goes well I’m hoping to start in May. 🙂

So back to today’s post…

My mani for today or more like this week is is another polish from Rimmel’s Lasting Finish Collection. The polish is ‘English Rose’ and is another pink shade. But unlike ‘Pink Zanfendel’ it has a red undertone and a very pretty vintage look.

 

I do want to start  wearing more orange and coral shades but ‘English Rose’ was the only Rummel Lasting Finish formula I could find whilst rumaging around in my polish collection. 

I specifically chose this line of polish because it stays on literally forever, and work is about to get a little full on for me so I want havd as much free time hanse why I’m putting off YouTube until May. 

 

Please excuse my shabby nails again I keep breaking them :(.

Love, Hugs And Glossy Kisses,

Today’s Mani: Pink Zanfandel

Hi Beauties

First off I’d like to say, I’m sorry for not being around much recently, my work hours are changing and I really don’t have much time to post at the moment.

So sorry and big hugs from me 🙂

My mani today features a shade that I haven’t worn for a while, ‘Pink Zinfandel’ from Rimmel is a stunning vintage pink shade with a rose gold shimmer.

  

For me it’s the perfect transition shade to spring, and the formula is amazing, it glides on, drys quickly and lasts for up to a week without chipping, perfect.

 

Without flash

 

With flash, here you can really see the Rose gold shimmer, love it.

Forgive the state of my wonkie, broken nail, I broke it at work,  I filed and shaped it the best I could for this mani but it still doesn’t look fantastic.

Thanks for reading Beauties, if you can recommend anything that will help my nails become strong and in better condition please let me know, I’m so tired of them breaking all the time.

Love, Hugs And Glossy Kisses,

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?.

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 

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,

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,
