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?

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,

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,

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_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…

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,
