Silver Glitter Tips


University has really been killing me with work recently, but on the plus side I'm nearly finished.

More nail art for today; this time without the sharpies. I recently bough the November issue of Glamour Magazine. One of the freebie gifts that came with it was a bottle of Nails Inc polish. I had never tried the brand before; it just wasn't on my priority lost. I chose the grey shade called 'Marylebone Mews' as I have nothing even close to that shade. It has undertones of purple, so I kind of think of it as a 'heather grey'.

The nail art is very simple; all you need is a polish in any colour of your choice. and a coordinating glitter topcoat (I used Barry M Glitter Nail Paint in Silver). Give your nails a good two or three coats of your base nail colour. I don't bother personally with base coats; I never notice my polish lasting any longer than normal. Then paint on the glitter topcoat, stopping about halfway down. Make sure the glitter does not form an obvious line across the nail. Keep layering the glitter, taking care to start the coat further and further up the nail until the end.

 I feel like the photos do these nails no justice :(
Hopefully, I will be able to start keeping to a schedule now that the bulk of University has been finished.

Farewell to Lime Crime Unicorn Lipsticks

As you may, or may not, know Lime Crime are discontinuing their Unicorn Lipsticks. Such a sad thing, I know. I remember first hearing of the lipstick from a family member who had one in their collection. I always promised myself that one day, I would have a Unicorn Lipstick. When I seen their Instagram post about the discontinue, I immediately went onto their website and bought not one or two, but THREE Unicorn Lipstick. Let me tell you I have never been happier; their are no post buy regrets on these babies!

MAC: Fraud or Not?

It's getting to the time of year when  people start gathering together all there gifts in the rush to the holiday season. They start trying to get the best gifts possible for the best price they can. Unfortunately that leaves them vulnerable for people to take advantage of them. The most common form of this is through the use of counterfeit goods. 
Recently a MAC lipstick was purchased for me, as a Christmas gift, from eBay. When I learned of it I was immediately sceptical and dubious of how genuine it was; I like to research into the item and view the pictures available myself. When I checked the listing, the lipstick was listed as 'MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick'. Upon looking at the details and the images available, I noticed that there were very few specifics and one general image of the lipstick with the lid off. I immediately wrote to the seller asking for pictures of the bottom label on the box and the lipstick tube (Well as details such as finish and shade). I knew th…

Barry M Colour Changing Lip Paint in Neptune

Remember way, way back, back to the very beginning of my blog. One of the very first products that I reviewed was the Barry M Lip Paint in the shade Genie. For those who don't know, Genie is an unusual colour changing lipstick. While it looks green in the tube, it turns a shade of pink on the lips that is supposed to be different for each person. It is supposed to be a result of the lipstick reacting to the alkaline level of the lips.
