NOTD: Inverted French Manicure

Just did this mani for a but of fun and loved it! I used Barry M Raspberry (although it looks more purple on the pictures), followed by OPI's I Juggle ... Men, a clear topcoat with blue and pink sparkle. I've put the blurred pic on here because it picks up the glitter quite well! I finished it off with one of my nail art pens to do the half circles!
A cute, easy, trendy look for spring :)

Review: Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish

I realise starting this post that the internet doesn't need yet another review raving about Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish. However I figured I would do one anyway, just in case some of you haven't heard of it yet or for those of you that are on the fence about buying it and need to see another blogger calling it a HG product before you decide to splurge on a £15 cleanser.

I've been eBay-ing loads of my old clothes recently, and therefore my Paypal account has been booming! I decided I'd buy something that I normally wouldn't spend my money on but had wanted for ages. Helloooooo Liz Earle!

I bought the starter set on eBay for £11.50. With postage it came to £14 but that's still cheaper that what I would have got it for from the online shop!

As soon as I received it I rushed over to the sink to try it out! It took off all my make up in a gentle sweep and left my skin very very pampered and moisterised. I must admit I was worried about the thickness of the product, mainly because my skin has oily tendencies and I'd always been told to go for a gel cleanser, not a lotion.

This cleanser proved everyone wrong though! After a couple of days of using it morning and night my skin started to look plumper and more radiant. I've never understood what people mean by radiant skin, I always thought they were exaggerating, however this product does literally make skin glow! I feel so cleansed after using this, and it's so much easier than using makeup remover or a make up wipe then cleanser . I don't wear lots of skin makeup, mainly powder, so everything comes off the first time around. Those of you that wear heavy foundation may find you need to remove their excess makeup before hand.

Conclusion? BUY IT! It's literally the nicest thing I've ever done for my skin, after only a week it's become a staple product. It's worth the money and your skin will definitely thank you for it!

What are your thoughts on Liz Earle's Cleanse and Polish? Worth the slurge or not worth the hassle?

NOTD: Indian Style French Tip

Hey ladies! This manicure is a fun yet quite neutral nail, just a little pop of colour. I painted the nail a nude colour, then painted a red tip, then followed it by a blue border. I added little white dots for a little bit of interest!
What are your thoughts ? I loved the way they turned out.

A nail girls worst nightmare!

Oh. My. Goodness.
In genuine choc right now. I bought 3 brand new, sealed Models Own nail polishes off of Ebay last week. I paid £4 for all three, so as you can imagine I was so excited!
Until, dear god, I opened my favorite colour to paint my nails. And I saw... THIS!


What am I supposed to do lovely ladies? I'm furious but part of me knows it's not the sellers' fault seeing as the other 2 polishes were fine and as I said it was perfectly wrapped.
I've just contacted Models Own and I'll see what they reply!
Beware lovely bloggers, always check your bottles before you buy, this could happen to you!

And the terrible blogger award goes to...

Can't believe I haven't blogged in ages! I've been really busy but I still feel horrible about neglecting you guys! Sorry lovelies.

Here's a fire inspired mani for you guys! I painted my nails a coral colour, then sponged a red colour onto the tips. I then painted on some gold/red/orange glitter!
I thought it looked so lovely!
Hope you enjoy :) I promise the next post will come shortly!

NOTD: Metallic Tip Modern French Manicure

Hey my lovely ladies! Firstly sorry the pictures aren't as good as they should be for this post, I was sure I'd taken some day time pictures of this mani but obviously not, oopsies! I chose to do this mani just because I've been a bit low on inspiration at the minute but also because my nails have gotten really long and I love how a french manicure just makes longer nails look elegant and ladylike!
Since the inspiration is running a little low feel free to suggest any ideas you may have and I'll make them happen! :). Everytime my Blackberry beeps telling me one of you has commented on a post it brings a massive smile to me face!
Have a great day,
Becky x
