Today’s mani

Hi Beauties

And yes surprise surprise I’m ill again, how do I get two chest infections in the space of a month? Unlucky me.

I’ve finally started journaling again so if any of you are interested I’ll do a flip through post,

Anyway let’s get to the point of why I’m posting, today’s mani is ‘Bullet’ from MUA its a shade I don’t wear that often but I’m glad I did. It is a very deep grey shade that screams winter, it’s opaque in around three coats and is quite quick to dry.

A huge thank you to Cathy from Ginger Beauty Blog for the stunning swatches, she really does this polish justice.

Thanks for reading beauties, they’ll be more to come very soon.

Love, Hugs And Glossy Kisses,

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.

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…

Art Deco Nails

Hi Beauties

How are you all?

I’m feeling slightly better myself today, not as achy or dizzy, plus me and a friend have started talking again after nearly a month. I’m in work later so I’ve got a feeling that today will be s good day :), and I hope yours is too.

Now as you may or may not know I’m obsessed with New York, I’d love to go one day it’d be a dream come true, I’d love to see the Chrysler Building that would be amazing.

The Chrysler Building is done in an Art Deco style which I love so I thought I’d share some of my fave Art Deco nail art with you.

The first mani is done is shades of brown and gold which look so beautiful together, the brown kind of reminds me of those old photographs from the 1930’s. This design is simply beautiful.

IMG_4422
Thank you sonailicious for the lovely nail art.

To me the next mani totally reminds me of the movie ‘The Great Gatsby’, the geometric shapes coupled with the gold and black colour scheme screams 1920’s America. Absolutely perfect.

IMG_4423
A big thank you to the The Fashion Brewery for making such stunning nail art.

Again this beautiful manicure has the black and gold colour scheme, but instead of 1920’s America, this piece brings to mind Ancient Egypt, not only do the lines remind me of pyramids but in the design on the ring finger, I see a pharaoh wearing a crown, cute 🙂

IMG_4424
I found pics of this lovely design on pintrest .

The next piece of nail art, I feel it a very modern take on an Art Deco design. This piece still has the geometric patterns but the Tiffany blue and white colour scheme are what give this design a lovely modern edge.

IMG_4425
A big thank you to beautylish for the lovely nail art.

So I’m sorry this post was quite short Beauties, but I’m quite particular when it comes to anything Art Deco. Thanks for reading and I’ll post again soon.

Today’s mani

Hi Beauties

I’m ill yet again, but this time I think it’s just a cold and I hope I’ll start feeling better soon.

Today I tried painting my nails with Revlon’s ‘Invitation Only’ which is a blue based green, it’s a very pretty colour but for some reason I just wasn’t feeling it.

So, I took it off and redid my mani with ‘Pink Cadillac’ from Collection Work The Colour (which I think is a UK only brand), ‘Pink Cadillac’ is a mid toned pink with an orange base to it. The colour is really pretty but the formula is a little streaky and it takes around 2-3 coats to be completely opaque.

Thank you to the lovely Kitty Tam for the beautifully and very well done swatches.

I hope your enjoyed this post Beauties I hope you liked it, 🙂

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 🙂

MUA: Things I’d Love To Try

Hi Beauties

I know I’ve been away for a while but my life has been kind of hectic recently, money and job worries mainly.

So in order to tackle these issues I decided to go to a local shopping centre with a PILE of CVs, whilst I was looking for work their were a few products from the MUA range that caught my eye.

The first item was the ‘Romantic Efflorescence Palette’, I was particularly drawn to the stunning shades of purple this palette holds, one is deeper toned than the other which will be perfect for a sultry night look, or a could wear both for an ombré eye look. The palette also sports some very wearable neutral toned shades, which I like to wear on those no-makeup- makeup days.

2015/01/img_4352.jpg

The second product is another eye shadow palette, this time it’s the ‘MUA Luxe Palette’ in ‘Mysterial. As you may or may not know I love rocking dark, vampy eye looks even in the daytime. I love the fact that this palette is metallic as it gives you a more dress up kind of look. I was also drawn to this palette because I think the contrast between the deep metallic black and the creamy pink shade would work beautifully on the eye.

2015/01/img_4353.jpg

Each time I go to the MUA web store I spend time drooling over this nail polish, ‘Honey Shine’ is a stunning shade, it’s a gold metallic with just a hint of a rose gold undertone. It’s a beautiful online exclusive and ‘Honey Shine’ will soon complete my MUA polish collection.

2015/01/img_4354.jpg

I love lip products and whilst I was browsing yesterday I managed to find the ‘Lip Switch Duos’, I tested all of them (at least I think I did), but only really liked three of them.

‘Crimson Ruby’ is more of a true red it’s the only one I found with the lipstick and a clear gloss as opposed to a coloured one. ‘Crimson Ruby’ did make me look a little washed out but I’ll find a way to make it work.
The next ‘Lip Switch Duo’ is ‘Coral Pink’ and it suits my skin tone beautifully, it’s not too bright and is just a few shades darker than my natural lip colour so it isn’t too ‘in your face’.
The third Is called ”Persian Plum’ I think it would work well with any skin tone, unlike ‘Crimson Ruby’ this one is more of a blue based red, which works beautifully with my skin tone and hair colour and doesn’t make me look washed out, if you wear this shade you’ll defiantly get noticed.

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 :).

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

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,
