Nail Wraps | Jamberry UK Nail Wraps*

L-R: Beach Chair, Santa Fe, Circus Tent, Sweet Surprise & Sorbet
Hi guys,

So a few weeks ago I was contacted by a lady called Laura, a representative from Jamberry, who informed me that Jamberry are launching in the UK and asked if I wanted to try some of their nail wraps. I'm a massive nail art geek and love nail charms, nail varnishes - nail everything! So of course I said I'd try them, and I really like them!


I'm using the wrap Santa Fe for my accent nail. On my other nails I used a white nail varnish for the base and OPI Sheer Tint, I Can Teal You Like Me.

I like the design on these nail wraps however I did find them very hard to put on. I found that they didn't quite fit my nail. But then again, I have struggled applying nail wraps on my nails in the past - so maybe it's just me lol.

They do separate junior ranges with matching sets for adults, so you have mother and daughter matching nails! Sooo cute! I don't have a kid so I'll have to use my little cousin lol!

If you have any questions or would like further info on these nail wraps, Laura has social media that she can be contacted on. Instagram: @jamberry_nail_lounge_by_laura and Facebook here.

Let me know if you have tried any nail wraps? Do you find them hard to apply, or is it just me??

Passion Struck - Fuji apple & vanilla orchid


Pure Daydream - pearl orchid & pink currant


Amber Romance - amber & crème anglaise


All three of these mists smell absolutely amazing - and the smell stays on your clothes for hours, especially Amber Romance!

Please let me know if you own any VS Fragrance Mists or body sprays! If so, which is your fave? :)

Glossybox | April 2016


Hi guys - it's time for another Glossybox post! Here's what I got inside this month's Glossybox:

 
Essence Mosaic Compact Powder, Full Size £3
 
 

I've tried this and worn it out before writing this post and it's so lovely! It really does give a natural subtle glow, with a bit of shimmer. For £3 you can't knock it - definitely good value for money!


Leighton Denny Expert Nails, Miracle Mist, Full Size £12
 

This is one of the products I'm super excited about! It's a nail drying mist! It sounds so amazing (if it actually works lol) I'm definitely going to try this and put a review up on my blog. So for those who are interested, keep an eye out haha.

Studio 10 Brow Lift Perfecting Liner, Full Size £22
 
 
This is good and does define your brows but personally I don't think it's worth £22!! There are plenty of drug store brands that offer products like this. However I will use this (be a shame to waste it!) but once it's gone I'll go back to my Barry M  Brow Pen which is just as good and a fraction of the price!

The Body Shop, Oils of Life Facial Oil, Full Size £28
 
 
I've never tried any sort of facial oil (I'm kinda scared it'll give me spots because it's oil lol) however everything I've ever bought/tried from Body Shop has never done me any harm, so I will give this a go. I'm not sure what to expect, but I'll have to wait and see I guess!

 
STYLondon, Temporary 'Henna' Tattoos, Full Size £5.99
 
 
Can I just start off by saying this was extremely hard to try and get a picture of??
 
These are really cute and perfect for summer. They also give off Coachella vibes! Love it! I'll be wearing these soon!
 
They're all the things I got in my April Glossybox. Let me know if you subscribe to Glossybox or any other beauty subscriptions?
 
Also, if you have any questions about the products I've shown, let me know in the comments and I'll answer them :)
 
Thanks for reading,

1. Topshop, Beehive - a gorgeous velvet finish lipsick, and is a pinky/nude colour.

2. Maybelline, Kiss Pearl - a very sheer pale pink colour with a pearl like sparkle.

3. Too Face Melted Metallic, Melted Metallic Peony - a lovely pink colour with a metallic finish (did a full blog post on this here)

4. MAC, Sunny Seoul - a super creamy cremesheen pastel pink colour.

5. Nyx, Razzle Fiesta - this is the brightest out of the 5 and is a gorgeous fuchsia pink colour.


Top to Bottom:
Nyx, Razzle Fiesta
Too Face Melted Metallic, Melted Metallic Peony

I love every single one of these colours (well I would because I bought them lol) but you know what I mean! I think each of these lipsticks are perfect for Spring!

Glow Kit by Anastasia Beverly Hills | That Glow Review + Swatches



This palette is seriously so gorgeous!! I first saw this palette on Instagram (one of those quick beauty vids) and I've wanted it ever since ! I was super happy when Cult Beauty were finally selling it!

There are two different Glow Kits you can get, That Glow and Gleam, I got That Glow because they had the colours that I prefer to wear. Gleam had more pinky tones, but I like my highlighter to be bronze/gold. Although I am considering getting That Gleam aswell, because the colours are so amazing!



Sorry that in the pictures they have finger marks in the shades - as soon as I got it I had to swatch the different shades!
  • Sunburst - a golden shimmer powder
  • Golden Bronze - a dark bronze powder
  • Bubbly - a light bronze shimmer powder
  • Dripping In Gold - a bronze powder with a hint of gold

My photos honestly are rubbish lol - I seriously couldn't get a good picture of these on my arm and I don't know why??

These colours look so gorgeous on your skin when you've done your makeup in pictures, but here I can't even capture the different shades! *angry face emoji*

I'm even considering getting the Gleam glow kit, so when I don't fake tan I can have nice pinky/silvery tones!

Let me know if you have any of the ABH Glow Kits - if so, let me know what you think of them?

Thanks for reading!

Makeup Revolution Pro Brush Cleanse Tool | How I Clean My Makeup Brushes


 
Hi guys,
 
So a few months ago I bought this brush cleaner by Makeup Revolution (it's now on sale btw!!)  and omg it's a life saver when cleaning your brushes!
 
I saw it in Superdrug and thought "wow what an amazing idea, I need this" I didn't realise lot of other people had similar brush cleaners to this. It was the first one I'd ever seen and thought it was amazing! I still think it is amazing lol.
 
 
The grooves on the brush cleaner help clean your brushes. I used to swirl my brushes around the palm of my hand, which I hated doing because it'd mean my hand looked about 80 years old where it'd wrinkled from being under water for so long!! Gross!
 
I need to buy proper brush cleaning shampoo/soap, because at the moment I just use shower gel lol. I used to just buy cheap shampoo from Boots and wash my brushes in that, but I found that shower gel worked a lot better.
 
 
I used to dread cleaning my brushes because it always takes so long, and I hated having a wrinkled hand at the end of it! But this little brush cleaner has seriously changed my life!! Sad, I know!
 
Such good value for money, only £4.99!
 
Let me know if you have a brush cleaner like this, if so what do you think of it?
 
Thanks for reading,
