I love a bit of Nail Art #bbloggers

As you may be able to tell, I have not updated my blog in over a month. I kinda took a huge Christmas break from it, I had lots of things to write about but I kinda just did not want to do it. Yeah sorry about that! But, I thought hang on New Year, I used to LOVE blogging. It can be tough, but hey!

One of my ultimate favourite things to do is to paint my nails, I have previously done a post about this before >> have a look here << But over the christmas period, I believe that I changed my nails about 3/4 times a week. It got to the point people were asking what my nails looked like today at work.

I thought I would share them with you. Just like to let you know, I am not amazing at them, I am challenging myself more each time. ๐Ÿ™‚ IF you do wish to follow them, you will see them pop up on Instagram under different tags lol.

IMG_20141102_151402

My first is this beautiful hyper shine of Ted Baker coral. One of my favourite colours there are, it’s so summer filled and its so shiny as well! I love having a different ring finger (you’ll see this throughout the post!). Having gold and pink together, along with the white contrasts amazing with the pink.

IMG_20141106_000645

Gold and pink seemed to have been a theme I went through. The Maybelline Colour Show is one of my favourite glitter nail varnishes, it stays on for days, has the most amazing shine. I used 3 different shades of pink offered by MUA. The middle finger is a gold shade.

IMG_20141110_000932These are my personal favourites. The nail varnish is actually from Poundland, in a deep red. I of course have included a matte finish to it and alongside this, I have used the glitter from the brilliant, seriously brilliant polish of Maybelline Colour Show in Rose Chic (seriously it’s the best thing ever!!)

IMG_20141114_013125Not one of my favourites, but it appears that a lot of people liked it on Instagram haha. Barry M in a brown/nude shade, matte finish alongside the rose chic gold in the chevron space.

IMG_20141117_012604I was so bored of the gloomy weather, that I thought I would sundeck out my nails. Full of pastel shades from many different nail varnishes. Always good to do this using your normal handwriting hand, until you have to do it on the other hand and it all goes tits up.

IMG_20141121_140008I kinda went a bit glitter mad…………………. not keen. Didnt last long, plus the ring finger really smudged here ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

IMG_20141122_005229Barry M in lilac is my favourite go to nail polish. It never fails and it always brightens up my day when I put it on. Again I have used the lovely gold nail varnish, just to add some snazz to it all. hehe.

IMG_20141127_012825Another Poundland nailvarnish, it’s amazing how bright this is. I used a nail varnish techniques brush to add the black slashes onto the nails. Each nail as a contrasting blue/green alongside the black dots.

IMG_20141129_190300These are my mum’s nails haha! Simple Revlon matte red nails, very similar to the dark red ones before. She requested to be like those.

IMG_20141129_205548

White nail varnish, alongside Rimmel Pop Art that was on sale. Unfortunately the Rimmel polish, I had to apply about 4 times in order to get all of the dots on. I also added glitter as well.

IMG_20141130_003440

The black nail varnish is Poundland, literally needing 1 coat online. A gold chevron design with the Barry M lilac wedding ring finger ๐Ÿ™‚

IMG_20141206_175939I seem to love a bit of purple, and I thought I would try and contrast in designs and shades. I love the idea of the white dot at the top of the chevron gold design, just brings your eye towards the line.

IMG_20141208_175500Wayhey its Christmas time!! haha, no explanation here either hehe. Ho ho ho.

IMG_20141210_004440Buzz Buzz Buzz. The black dots link between the flower and the bee…. follow that line hehe.

IMG_20141212_010612I love this shade of nail varnish, there is no top coat on this and you can see how shiny this blue shade is. I have of course added glitter.

IMG_20141215_020824Yay back to my rose chic glitter nail varnish. I love pink and I am a girly girl. It’s a great feeling to look down and think yay I did this!

IMG_20141222_010942

I am really not keen on red ๐Ÿ™‚ But this is a glittery pinky/red, I do think that this lasted for a few hours. Again gold glitter.

IMG_20141225_235151I freaking LOVED how bright this design was, just like the blue sweep earlier. This is a bright pink polish from Primark, alongside the white varnish. I love my thumb on this one!

IMG_20141228_184351I maaaaaaaaaay or may not have been looking at wedding designs on Pinterest and this was an idea that I had. Matte white and gold nails โค

I found the most amazing thing in TK Maxx, look at all of this and I got it for just over ยฃ20, therefore I thought I would try them out hehe. Here we go!:

IMG_20141229_204254

IMG_20141229_231712

I LOVE how wedding based this is. hehe. I love the idea of the added pearls on the thumb and wedding finger, the confetti within the nail varnish and it just looks like snow. So delicate.

IMG_20141231_003045I will be honest, I was trying out different things with this particular photo. They all came off within 15 minutes, as I thought it was too much. As you can see there are many different designs. Weirdly got quite a few likes on Instagram.

IMG_20141231_003306A dark orange and black shaded nail varnish. Made me want a Terrys Chocolate Orange though haha!!

IMG_20150106_005348New Year New Me. Matted multicoloured dots ๐Ÿ™‚

So there you go, all of my nails over the past 3 weeks. What do you think?

My week of experimenting with Nail Varnishes

62

 

Hello lovely people, I am trying my best to blog more but my stupid bedroom at the moment does not get internet and its just so much effort. So I am combining a few posts in the next coming days. This post is all about the beauty of nail varnishes and polishes, however you want to describe them. For many years at my old work, I was not allowed to have nail polish on my nails, as it interferred with the “food”…. I sold cigeretts and lottery tickets, where’s the food there?! Anyway, new job comes along and I was like THANK GOD I can now wear nail varnishes!! I have talked about my love of the nail varnish before……**hang on, throughout this I am going to swap between polish and varnish, I dont know which one is more correct** back to the sentence……. here’s the post I was having a natter about ๐Ÿ™‚ . click here for info ๐Ÿ™‚ oh and this one lolย oh and er lol this one

So this week, I have been watching a lot of nail art videos and looking at posts on Instagram. My friend tweeted me that I should follow an Instagram page, called – NailsVideos – and I thought hey we all start out as beginners, lets give this a go! Heres my week of changing my nails every day ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you enjoy ๐Ÿ™‚

My August Favourites

12Bonjour to all you lovely reader, this is gonna be a bit of a bumpf of a blog post so I apologise already if you do not fancy having a read… have a look at the pretty pictures instead (well I hope that they are pretty!!).First of all I have not done a favourites post in a while, my last **goes to look** oooh it was… Aprilย hereย (dear god I am bloody awful!) So let’s go with me hand in hand….. yes hand in hand lol & off to Neverland we go!! *yes, I do worry for my own sanity as well!*

20140831_163449Now I love love love a dry shampoo, there I said it, its out there! I have quite fine greasy hair when its not washed after 2 days and to be honest I am so lazy – therefore dry shampoo is my best friend. Of course my favourite is bastiste (floral, cherry and blonde) but I saw this and caught my eye being on offer in Morrisons for ยฃ3. I love the brand of Aussie, it does “miracles” for your hair, no pun intended. I therefore thought I would try it, this is the mega instant one. Its completely different to the Bastiste dry shampoo, unlike that brand which leaves a white mark and is quite dusty and they make your hair go poof. But the Aussie one, is so strange.

You spray it into your hair, which then leaves your hair …… wet… yes wet…. and then you comb it through. This then miraculously dries and you’re left with “cleaner” looking hair. The downside of this product is that, I am so used to Aussie making your hair nice and smooth, this made my hair feeling dry and wirey – definitely not what I wanted. I will keep using it, but thought I would let you know ๐Ÿ™‚

20140831_165958

As well as the Mega Instant product, they have also produced “Aussie Volume”. This again has the same effects as the previous product, but the volume is great on this, especially for me who has fine hair.

20140831_164918

I have just come back from my holiday (want to read about it click here) and I really wanted to keep my tan. My tan was really brown and I absolutely loved it, its brought me so much confidence and just feel amazing with it. I therefore saw this and wanted to try it…. its freaking amazing. I used it for 2 days and applied once a day, and people did actually question as to whether I have been on holiday again. Its rather strong. The smell does have a slight “tan biscuit” smell, but its a nicer smell. It lasts for some time. The only reason I stopped using it was because people thought I was putting fake tan on, and I wanted to prove in the end 3 weeks later I still have a tan lol!

20140831_164926I think that this product should be every girl’s favourites. It helps in so many ways, moisturises, soothes, softens and helps all your lovely bumps and of course any of those scars. I prefer the scented one (the original and best) as the smell I find it to be so nice, relaxing and comforting. Love a bit of cocoa butter smell.

PicMonkey CollageNow this is the only time that I will say this, but f**k you tan. I will not be buying foundation/concealer etc just for you. I will find something that will work for me…. weirdly enough I found it using products I already own. I have found a way in which to match my skin colour at the moment. I have older products such as the Rimmel Wake me Up and the Match Foundation. Both of these combined was lovely for my skin. My personal favourite out of these two HAS to be Rimmerl London’s Match Perfection, brilliant coverage, colour, tint and its for a great price as well.

20140831_165018As I previously stated in my blog postย I thought I would buy some actually decent make up! Yay go me!! I will forever love ELF corrective concealer, but my true love now has to be the Maybelline Colour Corrector. Much larger coverage (especially for my cheeks haha!!)

20140831_165041Now as I have never brought “top end” make up, I did not know that they offer samples on their little make up counters. When I get a bit more money, I will definitely be buying the MaxFactor 3in1. I have never placed the smallest piece of make up on my brush and for it to cover my whole face before. It is not greasy, does not make my skin dry and the pigmentation is just amazing. Highly recommend.

20140831_165117So it appears I either have an obsession with buying these, I keep loosing them or I keep loosing my memory. Either way, I freaking LOVE this mascara. Each time I wear it, a lot of people believe I am wearing fake eyelashes haha, hell no!! I wish unless I cant find it, but I wish that they made this in waterproof version, as the amount of times I have cried wearing this its ridiculous. When I cry, this mascara does sting my eyes…… ouch! I really hope that they do not stop doing it.

20140831_165148Now the product looks weird on the left, but its the brush I have been using haha. It should be a creamy texture.I am absolutely awful with bronzers and blushers, I can never find the correct one for my skin but this I love. Great coverage, stays on for many hours and it lasts for so long. It also comes up in the cutest design.

20140831_165339This is another up market decision,, I made. I forever forever will love the Rimmel Stay Matte powder. It will be one of my favourite products ever, I always love the matte finish to my make up and will always look for those finishes. The Max Factor version is of a darker tint, but its a lot softer, creamier and it lasts soooo much longer!

20140831_165345My favourite shade at the moment, I got this as a present back for my 25th and I love it. Its amazing with a lovely tan, lasts for a number of days and its great with extra glitter as well – here’s what it looks like :

11See told you it was pretty, especially with the added glittery wedding finger ๐Ÿ˜‰

20140831_165400It appears that I am loving a pink theme at the moment. I have already reviewed this on a previous post, but I love the scent to this, the colour, pigmentation and how long it lasts. It is quite scary as to how it goes on when you first put it on your lips, but it does calm down – Ii promise you!! The pigmentation is rather pale pink, a bit like a pink foundation lips (never a good look), but after a while the shade goes down and its a great contrast to your make up.

20140831_165545I ran out of this on holiday and I was absolutely gutted, literally annoyed with myself. Got home and realised, bugger I have no extra products either. So therefore I went to Superdrug the next day and I went there the next 4 days……… none were available. I asked the girl and she said “oh sometime soon”, really rather annoyed. Luckily we have 2 Superdrugs in town, yes lucky I know and 1 week later I bought 3… I am ashamed, yes 3. But I am not paying for postage and package when I can get it in the town. This product is just amaaaaaaaazing, comes in 3 different shades and I go for the medium brown colour. Here’s what it looks like:

20140428_000523

I hope that you enjoyed my little, but slightly long post of my August favourites. I am aware that I babble and babble on, im babbling on now… but I am not going to change my blog haha. As always:

No No, No No No No, No No No No – No No there’s no Lipstick!

bFirst things first, I really do hope that you sang the title of this post to the song “no no limits” haha, as you can tell I am a bit delusional at the moment, it is past 1am in the morning and I am writing this post. The reason behind this post is the idea that not every make up product that you buy is the best – sometimes you just have to buy lipstick on a hunch or from a swipe of the product you put on your hand. Shop lighting always helps, or if you buy on the internet the reviews of others or the company is not often what the end result is for you. I therefore thought I would write a post about the lipsticks I have bought and to be honest are now in a black bin bag from my big clear out today. Sorry if these are some of your favourites, but they’re just not for me ๐Ÿ™‚ PS – pinch punch first day of the month – no returns! PPSS – I still do not have my phone, so these photos are taken on my IPOD which is around about 4 years old……… so you can imagine the quality ๐Ÿ˜‰
