Winter Snowflakes Nail Art

University exams are over, all this semesters coursework's finished, homework assigned, it's safe to say the Christmas Holidays start now!! This semester of university has been so much harder which is why I had to stop posting for a while. Regardless, I'm back now and ready to roll!

Special times, such as the Holidays, call for lots of special nail art. It's been quite cold here in Scotland, so I thought I'd reflect that with some snowflake nail art. I made the design a bit different by reversing the colour combination on my ring finger.

The nail polish I used for my base, and the main star of the whole nail art, is the Formula X Nail Colour in the shade Desire. It's a deep, dark navy blue colour that is a smooth cream finish. I usually find it very hard to work with such dark colours, but this went on very smoothly. The colour is also very pigmented as I only had to use two thin coats to get complete opacity. This is only the second nail polish from the Formula X collection that I've ever tried, but so far I'm really enjoying them. The white polish used for the detailing and for my ring finger is from Collection.

It's been such a long time since I've painted my nails, nevermind any nail art. I've missed it. It used to be a small creative outlet for me. This has really lit a fire in me to start doing more. 

What's your favourite style of winter-themed nail art?

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. 

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!
