Nail Saviours

I have always suffered with bad nails. When I was younger I was a bitter, like as far down as possible. It tapered off around the age of 16 when I started becoming more into nail art, but I still struggled to grow them out. The main problems I now fight with are peeling and weakness which destroy my nails on a regular basis. The psychology student in me would say it's all down to genetics and can't be changed, but that's not something I want to accept.

Fav or Flop: Maybelline Great Lash Mascara

I'm all about trying new products recently and this post is no exception! If you follow me on Instagram (lots of pictures of cats, food, nails, you know, the usual fare) the you would haves seen that I picked up a brand new mascara that I was pretty chuffed to find. I had been honing in on this as being one of the next products I wanted to try, so to find it at a bargain price; there was no question I'd pick it up!

Ultimate Summer Nails

I made the decision to not have my nails professionally done before I go on holiday, instead I want to save the money for a splurge in Duty-Free. I'm just going to do my own french tipped nails, so that they are no fuss and I don't have to lug about ten bottles of nail polish away with me. This has led to my hunt for the perfect summer nail colour, which I think I have found!

Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner

I think I've mentioned it before that I'm not super into eyeliners. I've used the same brand and product since I first learnt how to apply it. I've recently been feeling like I want to branch out and try new things. I went out with the intention of buying a gel liner, to try it out and see if it is something I could potentially see myself using a lot more. We've all seen videos where girls apply seamlessly flawless gel liner; well I want that!

I picked up this Maybelline Eye Studio Lasting Drama Gel Liner out of my local Superdrug, also picking up a Maybelline Great Lash Mascara because 'branching out' and all that. It was really the first one I noticed, and I wasn't all that bothered about the brand to be honest.

Too Faced Exotic Colour Intense Eyeshadow in Copper Peony

I received this way, way back in my March Cohorted box, and have since been admiring it from afar. I didn't feel comfortable with such a bright and vivid colour for quite some time, but I finally worked up the courage to use it. I actually think it works really well with my eyes; it makes their green colour really pop. 

Holiday Makeup

I know lots of people have already done their version of this post since summer is nearing it's end, but I still have to go on holiday. I seem to have left my summer holiday until the last possible moment. 

As I'm going to Florida, I have been given quite a high luggage allowance, but I plan on bringing back A LOT! This means that I have to be rather scrimping with what goes in as too much will leave little space to bring back. I probably still have too much!

Happy Birthday Surprises!

I cannot believe that I am 22 already; where has time gone?! I still feel like that young girl who was eagerly looking forward to her 18th birthday and adulthood, having just left school. Now here I am my 22nd birthday and away to start my third year of psychology. Time flies when you are having fun!
My mum completely spoiled me, considering it is three weeks until we go to Florida. I thought I'd share some of the lovely bits and bobs that she gave me.

Bourjois 1 Seconde Nail Polish in 'God Save the Green'

I had to go out and buy a new polish this weekend as there was nothing in my collection that was tickling my fancy. I've really been liking opaque creamy polishes with no shimmer or sparkle to them. It's just one of those odd nail phases I tend to go through. I picked up this rather pleasing shade at my local Superdrug.
