China Glaze Electric beat + Stamping

I used China Glaze Electric beat and Accessorize Sapphire and Cheeky plate CH11 for this stamping. I actually really like it, turned out better then i thought and it stamped on brilliantly.

China Glaze - International Flare

This is a really nice magenta colour pink polish, it has a slight shimmer to it in the bottle but it doesn't show up on the nice.

The first coat was very sheer but once the second coat was applied it it gave it a nice full coverage.

China Glaze Kinetic Candy + Stamping

I've missed doing stamping on my nails lately, so seeing as today has been the first day of doing NOTHING :-) i decided to use China Glaze Kinetic Candy and cheeky plate 16. I tried many colours out first before settling on using another of my new polishes China Glaze Deviantly Daring for the stamping. I wasn't sure to start with how the polish would turn out as it seem a little watery but it was brilliant to stamp with.

Has anyone got any ideas on how to get stamps to fit the thumb nail. I hate having the gaps around each side every time on my thumb :-(

China Glaze Bogie (rare) + Revlon Stunning

This is one of the new polishes that came Friday from America. Its from a fall 2010 collection i think but it is a pretty colour. It's a plum/smoky brown colour with a multi-coloured shimmer to in it in the light. It only needed 2 coats for a full coverage. The only problem i had was my brush was loose so made applying difficult :-( it even fell out of the lid twice. But i have a china glaze that i was going to get rid of so i may just clean up that brush and swap them over as i would certainly wear this colour many times.


I wore the polish just that colour for a few hours but really fancied adding some glitter so i used Revlon Stunning

China Glaze Aquadelic + Collection 2000 Glittersweet

I tried out one of the new polishes i bought yesterday which was collection 2000 Bedazzled nail effects Glittersweet. I never buy collection 2000 polishes as i have always been disappointed with them but i just saw this glitter and wanted it.

It says you can use it as a top coat or wear alone. After using this i really don't think you could wear it alone as the polish is quite watery so it would take many many coats. I decided to use it over China Glaze Aquadelic. It looked ok but i think a darker green would have suited it better.

2 coats of Aquadelic + 2 coats of Glittersweet

No7 Exceptional Definition Mascara

While i still have a few minutes i thought i would get this review done before i go back to the tidy up, washing, ironing, cleaning and polish and present hiding lol

I love love love love LOVE!!!! this mascara. i have so many mascaras in my make up drawer that i just don't use because i was disappointed in them but this one i think will be my number 1 mascara for a while. I bought this when i had loads of no7 vouchers and got my no7 Haul just before my holiday. It normally retails at £11 and i think i got it for £6 a big bargain i think.

This mascara really does do as it says, it's a 3 in one brush that is suppose to give definition and volume. For me it certainly did that, it also had barely any clumping once applied. I have worn this mascara since holiday and even in 30 degree heat it was brilliant i didn't get any panda eyes from sweating. Even for work most of my mascaras end up flaking abit near the end of the day and at times looks like i have none on but this mascara lasted ALL DAY!!! come the evening when i took it off it still look really good and didn't look like i had, had it on all day.

At £11 this mascara is abit on the pricey side but i would still buy it at full price, if your unsure then wait for the no7 vouchers then give it a try, you wont be disappointed.

Latest Polish Haul

I'm really sorry for the lack of updates this week, i have been really busy with work and decorating that i just haven't had the time. Even today which is my day off i'm still going to be busy :-(
With christmas not to far away i started doing a little bit of present shopping today, i was so happy that when i got to my local shopping mall it was really quiet. The Queen has come to visit a school just around the corner from me so everyone has gone to see her, which i'm not complaining i get my shopping done quicker with no queues!!!!
As always when i'm out buying presents i always have to buy myself something :-) i popped into Boots and bought two collection 2000 glitter polishes and then went to Debenhams and bought OPI You only live twice. They cheered me up and made me feel like not all my money is going on other people!!
It was even better when i got home to find a little red card from the postman, i wasn't 100% sure which parcel it was so when i got to the sorting office i was so happy to find out it was more polishes that i had ordered from America!!!!
I'm really glad my fiance is working late today as i'm going to have to hide all these polishes from him, we're ment to be saving :-) but shhhhhhh

Anyways heres the polishes i bought today

Opi - You only live twice
