My Unhealthy Nail Polish Obsession...

I have been obsessed with doing my nails lately and reading blogs and watching YouTube video's does not help either!

Although I do not have much money, I caved and brought some Essie polishes from an ebay seller and other polishes from my local Boots.

Unleash the polish ...

(1) Essie Miss Matched - A cream finished baby pink nail polish which applies in 3 coats. It has a white pinkish look to the polish when 3 coats are applied. It is lovely, but can be streaky if 2 coats are applied.

(2) Essie Chinchilly - This is a dirty light greige polish with a cream finish. In some lights this can appear as a light grey khaki colour. It is completely opaque in 2 coats!

(3) Sally Hanson Insti-Dri Top Coat - This stuff is amazing! I was never a person who used top coat, but this stuff dries my nails so quickly!

(4) Revlon Facets of Fuchsia - This is a gorgeous polish. It has a black base with fine and chunky purple glitter! Applies opaque in 2 coats, but is a pain in the backside to remove!

(5) Revlon Gold Coin - This is a lovely gold metallic polish with slight hints of silver running through it. Applies opaque in 2 coats and does not chip as much as other metallic polishes.

(6) Revlon Smoky Canvas - This polish is part of the fall 2011 collection and is light grey creamy polish with beige undertones. It is much lighter than the Essie Chinchilly polish. You can get away with applying one coat with this polish as the opacity of this polish is fabulous!

The Essie Polishes were purchased from this ebay seller -

The Revlon polishes and Sally Hanson top coat were purchased from Boots.

Happy Shopping

Lush Colour Supplements

I have been curious about how the Lush Colour Supplements perform, and have always been interested in trying one!

So whilst I was supposedly browsing at my local shopping centre, I was drawn to the Lush shop, picked up a few bits and spent money! Yikes! Whilst Shopping I picked up the Colour Supplement in 'dark yellow' which is suitable for olive-toned skin, which I have. 

What are Colour Supplements? 
This is a multi-use base colour - can be used as foundation, to mix in with moisturiser to form a tinted moisturiser and concealer! 


Guys don't freak out by the fact that this shade is dark, my face is much darker than my hands! I really don't know why lol.. This colour suits my skintone perfectly on my face :)

  • The coverage you get if you use this product straight out of the pot without moisturiser is medium to full coverage, which I love! It also doesn't feel heavy like most full coverage products for the skin would feel!
  • Price: £7.95 making this affordable compared to many drugstore foundations!
  • Consistency is lovely and creamy, not cakey looking on the skin
  • Easy to carry around as it is in a little pot
  • Can be used in a variety of different ways - tinted moisturiser, concealer
  • Provides a luminous glow to the face

  • Rubbish selection of colours, as the focus here is on base colour!
  • This product is in a tiny pot, so will not last as long

I really do love this product and it is not only affordable, but looks amazing when applied on the skin. I haven't reached for my Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation since I got this 2 weeks ago, which says something about this product. 

If you are ever in Lush, ask for a sample of this and try this and let me know what you lovelies think?

Any colours that you like from this collection? What are your thoughts?

Relaxing with a coffee..

After long days at work, it is so relaxing to just sit and have a coffee and chit chat.
After a tiring day, I headed to Starbucks for a nice coffee and nearly fell asleep in the cozy armchairs! haha

Starbucks Creme Brulee Macchiato

Starbucks Belgian Chocolate Brownie 

What is your favourite way to relax?

The Holiday Season is nearly here..

Fall has well and truly begun, and the holiday season is set to arrive anytime soon !

This means the holiday collections are set to release for all the high end beauty brands! I absolutely love all the packaging and the cool stuff that the different makeup brands release.

Here is some things that have caught my eye and have added to my Holiday wishlist:
MAC Ice Parade Collection 2011 - 'Make it perfect brush kit'

Benefit Holiday Collection - 'The Big 10'

Philosophy Holiday Collection 2011 - 'Snow Kisses Duo'

Urban Decay Holiday Collection 2011 - 'Urban Decay Mariposa Palette' 

All of these holiday collections will be releasing from the end of October, to December time. These products will all be limited edition, so if you like what you see then snap them up! I think the Urban Decay Palette will sell out quick, which is something that occurs with most Urban Decay limited edition palettes. 

Which items for the holiday season have caught your eye?

My Skincare Wishlist

These are some of the items that I really want to purchase, but money has been kinda tight ...but a girl can still dream right?

(1) The Clarisonic Mia - This is something I have been really wanting to purchase as it promises amazingly cleansed skin. However with the £120 price tag, this is something I cannot still justify?

(2) The Avene Cleanance Gel - A product I came across through the beauty community on YouTube, and is something that has interested me because it is targeted at acne prone skin, which I have! This is something I want to pick up as soon as I am out of the cleanser I am currently using!

(3) Kiehl's Ultra Facial Toner - After trying this in a sample form, I fell in love! It makes the skin feel soft and firm and it feels really refreshing on my skin!

(4) Origins GinZing Eyecream - I played around with this whilst I was in Origins with my sister and I really liked the consistency and how it provides a luminescent glow under the eye area!

What is that one product that you really want, that is one your skincare list?
