Nail Of The Day – Manhattan Quick Dry 46, Barry M Amethyst Glitter, Primark PS… Marshmallow & Stamping With MoYou London Rebel 07

Hi there! Here’s another mani I did a little while ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Manhatten Quick Dry 46K (dark red base colour, 2 coats, thumbs, index and middle fingers) and Primark PS… Marshmallow (white base, 2 coats, ring fingers, pinkies).

The pretty glitter top coat is Barry M Amethyst Glitter. For the images I used MoYou London‘s Rebel 07 stamping plate and a random black polish.

The mani wasn’t what I had in mind. Whilst the red glitter nails looked great, the black and white nails weren’t my best work. The black polish I stamped with isn’t suitable for stamping, and the images ended up the wrong way around… Whoops!

Ah well, things like these happen sometimes. Onto the next mani! 🙂

Skin Care Chemist Macadamia Beauty Oil

Hi there! Today’s post is about Skin Care Chemist‘s Macadamia Beauty Oil. This facial oil is aimed at people with mature skin. It promises to help restore skin’s natural, radiant looking glow, to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and to lift, plump, smooth and soften the skin.

This facial oil contains vitamin E as well as a number of botanical ingredients, such as macadamia oil, sunflower seed oil, meadowfoam seed oil, raspberry fruit extract, sage leaf extract, nettle extract, rosemary leaf extract, etc.

How’s the product? I’ve been using this oil for a few weeks now, and I’m blown away. I can’t believe I’ve waited so long to try a facial oil. I could kick myself! This oil is simply fantastic. It bursts with botanical ingredients, it feels amazing on my skin, it makes my skin feel sensationally soft, it takes care of dry patches, and it looks like it’s filling in my fine lines! I love this facial oil. It’s one of the most amazing products I’ve tried all year. 11 stars!

How do I use the oil? I’m using this oil instead of a serum. I let it sink in for 5-10 minutes, then I apply my eye cream and my day cream. I know some people like to use a facial oil only, others use their facial oil after their serum and instead of a moisturiser. But there are no rules, really. And using this facial oil instead of a serum works best for me. 🙂

Skin Care Chemist‘s Macadamia Beauty Oil is available as 30ml. I paid £3. What an amazing bargain!

Garnier Skin Active Volcano Mask

Hi there! Today’s post is about Garnier‘s Skin Active Volcano Mask with volcanic rock and clay.

This is a self-heating face mask that promises to give skin a deep cleanse to make it look smoother and less shiny. It also claims to make pores less visible.

How’s the product? I’m not impressed. The self-heating effect is negligible, and I didn’t see any results. My skin didn’t feel or look cleaner, and my pores looked just liked they did before.

My husband tried this mask too. He said using this mask was a waste of time. I agree! If you’re looking for a good self-heating mask, try Montagne Jeunesse!

Garnier‘s Skin Active Volcano Mask is available as 8ml. I paid £1 (Poundland).

Nail Of The Day – Manhattan Lotus Effect Nail Polish 21G & Stamping With MoYou London Illusion 09

Hi there! Here’s another Nail Of The Day post!

For this mani I painted my nails with Manhattan Lotus Effect Nail Polish 21G (2 easy coats).

I think this is a beautiful yellow nail polish. It’s not too bright, but it’s also not too boring. It’s just right. 🙂

I also got another chance to use my MoYou London Illusion 09 stamping plate again.

The black polish I stamped with is Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto.

A few of the images were a bit smudged. That’s an issue with the plate and not with the polish. I have no doubt that, in real life, no one would notice.

Pantene Pro-V Youth Protect Rejuvenating Intensive Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Pantene Pro-V Youth Protect Rejuvenating Intensive Conditioner which I picked up for £1 (Poundland).

This conditioner promises to nourish hair for a more youthful look.

The product is quick and easy to use – use it like any regular conditioner, but leave it on for 2 minutes.

How’s the product? I like it! Whilst I think that Pantene’s Youth Protect shampoo and conditioner aren’t impressive at all, this intensive conditioner is very nice!

I’m not sure about the “youthful” look, but I’m satisfied that this product makes my hair feel super soft. I like it!

Pantene Pro-V Youth Protect Rejuvenating Intensive Conditioner is available as 200ml. I would definitely recommend it!

Nail Of The Day – Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint, Miss Sporty Lasting Colour 500, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 610 Over The Rainblue & Stamping With Bundle Monster BM 711

Hi there! I have a Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel Lycra Pro 500 Peppermint (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs) and Miss Sporty Lasting Colour 500 (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers).

I used Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure 610 Over The Rainblue (1 coat) on my pinkies and ring fingers.

I used Bundle Monster‘s BM 711 stamping plate (from Bundle Monster‘s Secret Garden collection) and Revlon Colorstay 270 Stiletto to stamp floral images onto my thumbs, index and middle fingers.
