NOTD : Navigate her!

Back with another nail post featuring my first ever Essie nail polish. Essie is quite a popular brand originating from the US and has become increasingly popular these past few years in the UK. I first heard of Essie from the blogosphere but found their polishes just abit too expensive (usually retail for about £8 a bottle) to find them worth trying. Also I've read that they are incredibly streaky to apply.

Whilst surfing the internet I happened to glance upon an Essie polish called Navigate Her and completely fell in love with the colour. I had to have it! So did a quick google search and managed to find it for only £2.99 on this website. Postage was only £1.95 and it arrived a couple of days later.

I found the application a little tricky, if you applied too much pressure with the brush it was streaky but with a light hand application was a breeze. I used two coats and applied Sally Hansen's Advanced Hard as nails on top. The above picture was taken after 5 days of wear and apart from my index finger (where I've actually broken my nail) there's been no chipping. I'm probably going to remove it just from boredom but I'm sure this could easily last another few days! I'm very impressed by this polish and am definately going to be repurchasing some more Essie!

NOTD: Barry M Pink Silver Glitter

Wow so I've been away for absolutely ages but I'm ready to start blogging again and what better way to start then with a NOTD.

Even though I've been away from the blogging world my love of nail polish has not faded, my nail polish collection has increased exponentially to a ridiculous amount of which I'm way too ashamed to disclose. 

So thought I'd show you the most recent polish I've added to my collection :)

This is Barry M Pink Silver Glitter nail polish. I've used three coats to achieve the above look but this still isn't 100% opaque more like 95%. However I LOVE this polish. It's so pretty and sparkly but not too obnoxious.

I also decided to add some silver chrome nail polish by Star Gazer to my thumb. To get a nice crisp line I just used a piece of tape. I think the chrome and glitter effect go really well together. I love doing an accent nail :)

I got the polish from Boots for £2.99 but Superdrug currently have Barry M polishes 2 for £5!

NOTD feat. BarryM nail effects

So I'm back after being away for what seems like absolutely ages, 8 months to be exact! Uni work/life definitely sucks up alot of time and I kinda just lost interest in blogging. But I do wanna get back into it or it could be more that I should be revising for exams and this is a great way to procrastinate.

But anyhoo, I'm back with a nails of the day post. And I've got loads more coming up hopefully, my nail polish collection has grown considerably, just can't get enough of coloured nails :)

This is Models Own lilac dream teamed with the famous BarryM's instant nail effects in black. I love combining the BarryM polish with bright colours I think it gives the best effect.

EOTN (eye of the night) using Urban Decay naked palette

So I actually remembered to take a picture of my eye makeup before I went out. I was really pleased with how it turned out. I used the Urban Decay Naked palette to complete this look, I don't know what I ever did without it!!

1. Apply Urban Decay primer potion
2. Apply HALF BAKED (frosty gold colour) eyeshadow all over the lid. 
3. Apply DARK HORSE (frosty dark brown) eyeshadow in the crease.
4. Apply a tiny amount of CREEP (frosty black) in the outer corner.
5. Apply WHISKEY (brown) pencil eyeliner along lower lash line and ZERO (black) pencil eyeliner in the outer corner of lower lash line. Blend using either your finger or an angled eyeliner brush.
6. Apply Mac's fluidline in blacktrack along upper lash line
7. Apply Benefit's eye bright pencil on brow bone
8. Apply mascara (I forgot to do this before I took these pictures)

ASOS nail polish haul

Hey guys,

Sorry I've been M.I.A recently been trying to get back into the routine of uni and been busy going out and stuff. I've really been making good use of the Urban Decay Naked palette which has to be my absolute favourite beauty product of the moment for me, wish I'd taken some EOTD pictures!! It's great for day and night eyes. I was planning on doing another ELF haul which is now officially lost in the mail and I've just asked for a refund now :( not happy!!

So just thought I'd share with you a recent nails haul I did from ASOS as they had a sale on their nail polishes.

I got quite a strange mix of colours:

1.Eyeko Posh polish 8.5ml for ladylike nails (so cute!!)

2.Models Own purple Grey 14ml- which is supposedly a non shimmery dupe for Chanel's paradoxal. See comparison here on The Swatchaholic's blog.

3.Models Own Slate Green 14ml

4. Rimmel's 60 seconds in Purple Reign 8ml - This is coming out darker than it is on camera.

I would show swatches but my nails are currently painted with Rimmel's Lycra Pro in Beige Babe and with Rimmel's lycra pro matte finish on top. And I'm loving the combo so don't wanna take it off just yet! But expect some NOTDs with the above nail polishes :)

Random blabber!! (and NOTD)

Sorry again for the lack of posts. I'm in the process of moving back to uni so been busy packing!

I was hoping to do another E.L.F haul but it decided to get lost in the post and the E.L.F people have told me I have to wait until it's been 2 weeks since the dispatch date and then they'll look into it, so annoyed!! 

So I won my first giveaway this week over on Stylefrost's blog. Go check her blog out she does really great OOTD (outfit of the day) posts. 

So I've given my blog abit of a spruce up, was getting kinda bored of the old format. Hope you guys like it :)

And of course another NOTD. I remembered Kim Kardashian doing a twitpic of her white nails a couple of months ago and just decided to try all white nails. They're definitely "illuminating", kinda weird getting used to but now I love them. I've used Barry M nail paint in "Matt white".
