Nail Of The Day – NYC In A Minute 221 Spring Street & Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 842 Chili Flakes

Hi there! I’ve got another Nail Of The Day post for you. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with NYC In A Minute 221 Spring Street (2 coats). I’m not a fan of colours like this one. But I already own the polish, so I might as well just use it.

Colours like this one aren’t great for stamping, so I decided to try a new glitter topper. I went for Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 842 Chili Flakes. By the way, “new” means “unused and has been sitting in my stash forever”.

I liked the mani much more than I thought I would. So it’s quite unfortunate that it didn’t photograph well.

Do you like coral nail polish? Do you like glittery nails? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Nail Of The Day – Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 820 Loden Green & Stamping With JQ-L19

Hi there! This week is NAIL WEEK. This means that I’ll only be posting about manis that I did.

There’ll be a few manis I liked, but there’ll also be terrible nails fails. 🙂

Alright… for this mani I painted my nails with Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 820 Loden Green. I’m not a big fan of Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure collection because many polishes are super thin and poorly pigmented, but this one was opaque in 2 coats.

Then I stamped! I used my JQ-L19 stamping plate and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms as my stamping polish.

I was really happy with this mani. It wasn’t the most summery mani, but I liked how the 2 colours looked together.

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin E Skin Care Shower Moisturiser

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Vitamin E Skin Care Shower Moisturiser. This product promises soft and smooth skin as well as all-day hydration. It contains shea butter, horse chestnut extract, and vitamins A, E, B5, F and H.

How does it work? This is an in-shower moisturiser. Apply it to your wet skin whilst you’re still in the shower – pretty much right after you’ve rinsed off your shower gel. Once you’ve massaged the moisturiser into your skin, it’s already time to rinse it off as well. Then pat your skin dry with a towel. Done!

I’ve used this product on and off for quite some time now, and I must say that I love it! This is the perfect moisturiser for when I’m in a hurry because it takes just 1 minute to moisturise and rinse. And the result is beautifully hydrated skin. The lovely fragrance (which is the same as the All Over Body Cream) is an added bonus!

Superdrug‘s Vitamin E Skin Care Shower Moisturiser carries the Leaping Bunny logo. It’s vegan and certified cruelty-free!. The product is available as 250ml for £2.99. Superdrug runs Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price Promotions on their Vitamin E Skin Care line almost all the time. 😉

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid & Stamping With Pueen 114

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did just a few weeks ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro 370 Wild Orchid (2 coats). This kind of milky purple (aka bubble tea purple) is my favourite nail colour. Whenever I see a milky purple polish, I buy it!

Back to the mani! I decided to stamp. Double-stamp, to be precise. I used Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto (black) and Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 819 Coat Of Arms (gold) as my stamping polishes.

The images are from Pueen‘s 114 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Make Your Day stamping collection).

I really liked this mani. I’ve done a very similar mani before, so I knew what I could expect from this mani. Do you like nail stamping? If so, let me know. And if not, why not? What nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading!

Anna Sui Flight Of Fancy Eau De Toilette

Hi there! Today’s post is about Anna Sui‘s Flight Of Fancy Eau de Toilette. I’ve been wearing this fragrance on and off for over a year now, so I thought it’s time for a review!

Alrighty! This fragrance contains the following notes: litchi, lemon, yuzu (top notes), freesia, rose, magnolia (heart notes), and amber, musk and woods (base notes).

I think Flight Of Fancy is a wonderful summer fragrance. It smells of sunny lemons with a touch of freesia. It’s fresh, full of energy, summery, yellow and happy. If you’ve ever wanted a fragrance that’s a mix of D&G Light Blue (which is lemon-fresh) and J Lo Live (which is incredibly juicy), this is it!

Anna Sui‘s Flight Of Fancy Eau de Toilette is available as 30, 50 and 75ml Eau de Toilette. In addition, Anna Sui does seasonal gift sets with matching body products!

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Charcoal Peel-Off Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug‘s Charcoal Peel-Off Mask.

This face mask, which is aimed at people with normal skin, contains charcoal and witch hazel, and it promises to give pores a deep cleanse.

I’ve given this mask a try, and I think that it’s alright. I can feel that it picks up dead skin cells, and that it makes my skin feel soft for a day. However, it didn’t do much else. I think this mask isn’t powerful enough to give pores a deep cleanse.

I don’t think I’ll buy this face mask again. If you’d like to try Superdrug‘s Charcoal Peel-Off Mask, it’s 99p at Superdrug (Superdrug runs 3 for 2 promotions on their face masks quite often).

This face mask is also 100% vegan and certified cruelty-free. It carries the Leaping Bunny logo!
