Then I swung by my local Poundland again and I bought…
2 Models Own polishes for £1 each,
2 more Maybelline lipglosses for £1 each,
2 Miss Sporty lipliners for 50p each,
4 Manhattan nail polishes for 50p each.

And one more thing, there’s Tokidoki stuff at B&M Bargains – I’ve seen backpacks and pencil cases which would also work as cosmetic bags! I’m tempted…

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 250 Rich Raspberry, Models Own Goose & Stamping With Pueen 84

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Models Own Goose (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers) and Revlon Colorstay 250 Rich Raspberry (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

I stamped using Pueen‘s 84 plate (which is part of Pueen‘s Buffet Leisure stamping plate collection) and the amazing Revlon Brilliant Strength 110 Hypnotize which is one of the best non-stamping polishes that stamp well.

Whilst I didn’t love this mani, I did like it. I think it looked cute and bright.

Nail Of The Day – Models Own Goose, Sinful Colors Blue La La & Stamping With Bundle Monster BM-720

Hi there! Today’s post is about a mani I did a little while ago.

For this mani I painted my nails with Models Own Goose (3 coats, pinkies, ring fingers). This is one of the polishes from Models Own’s super cute Speckled Eggs collection.

I painted my thumbs, index and middle fingers with the beautiful Sinful Colors Blue La La (2 coats).

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

The stamping plate I used is Bundle Monster‘s BM-720 plate (which is part of Bundle Monster‘s Secret Garden collection – which I bought a few weeks ago).

I really liked this mani. The Models Own polish is super cute, Sinful Colors Blue La La is a sensationally beautiful shade of blue, and I love this Bundle Monster stamping plate! What nail polish are you wearing at the moment? Feel free to comment. And thanks for reading! 🙂

Haul – New Products! Feat. MoYou London, Models Own, Bundle Monster, Anovia, T-Zone, Baylis & Harding

Hi there! I haven’t done a haul post in a little while, so here’s what I bought over the past couple of weeks. 🙂

Anovia Bamboo & Lotus Shampoo and Conditioner – 500ml bottles for 99p each (Home Bargains).

T-Zone Blue Peel Off Mask (99p, Home Bargains), and 3 Models Own Hipstick Sheen Lipsticks – Naked Brown, Retro Pink, Deep Plum (£1, Poundland).

New MoYou London stamping plates – Sailor 06 & 13, Origami 06, Animal 03 & 07, Tropical 10 – these were £2.99 each.

New MoYou stamping polishes – Little Pickle, Scandi Sun, Genie In A Bottle, Alpine Rain, Cancun Coral, Powder Blue, Orchid Chic – these were 2.99 each.

I must say I found the customer service at MoYou London really poor. There were several issues with my order. The customer service agent didn’t read my emails properly so there were a few pointless exchanges, and because of this it took over a month to sort out my order. I also found it extremely lazy and unprofessional that she didn’t start or finish most of her emails with any kind of salutation.

I don’t usually complain if people make mistakes. We all make mistakes, but most of us have the decency to say sorry. Please don’t think I sent her any rude emails. She kept making mistakes, she was condescending, and she failed to apologise whilst I was simply too patient for too long! I wanted to buy a few more MoYou stamping plates, and I already had them in my online cart, but then I decided to buy new stamping plates elsewhere…

… and I purchased Bundle Monster‘s sensational Secret Garden stamping plate collection – £17.62. What a bargain! I purchased this set through Nail Art UK. Great service!

And I found Baylis & Harding‘s Pink Grapefruit & Raspberry Body Butter and Fragrance Mist. These were £1 each at Poundland.

I’m very happy with what I bought. Have you tried any of these products? Would you like to try any of them? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Fearne Lola Lavender & Models Own Jack Frost

Hi there! Today’s post is not just a Nail Of The Day post.

It’s also the last post for this week which means that Nail Week has come to an end.

Anyhoo… for this mani I painted my nails with Fearne Lola Lavender (2 coats).

I think this is a great quality polish. It’s almost a one-coater, and it dries quickly.

The top coat I used is Models Own Jack Frost (1 coat). I found this beautiful holographic glitter polish at one of the Poundstores – what a bargain!

It was impossible to capture this holographic beauty in a single photo – but in real life this top coat looks stunning.

Do you like glitter polishes? What’s your favourite? Feel free to comment. And thanks for stopping by!

Haul! New Products From The Body Shop, Dr. Organics, Sukin, Garnier, Superdrug, Yes To, Skin Republic, Asda & Models Own

Hi there! I haven’t done a haul post since early January, so let me show you what I bought since then. 🙂

I bought 3 The Body Shop shower gels – Frosted Plum, Vanilla Chai and Frosted Berries. They were £2.50 each.

The Body Shop’s Atlas Mountain Rose Body Lotion was £2, the Early Harvest Raspberry Eau de Toilette was £5, and the Fijian Water Lotus Body Lotion was £2. I’ve already reviewed the body lotions – click here.

About 10 days later I placed another TBS order. This time I bought an Italian Summer Fig shower gel (£3), an Italian Summer Fig Eau de Toilette (£6), another Early Harvest Raspberry Eau de Toilette (£5), and a Polynesian Island Tiaré shower gel (£2).

I also picked up 3 Models Own flakie polishes – the names are Golden Shore, Red Sea and Aqua Splash. The polishes were £1.49 each (Superdrug, bargain bin).

I bought 2 Dr. Organic Body WashesAloe Vera & Manuka Honey. These were on sale (£1 each) at Holland & Barrett.

I also picked up a Dr.Organic shampoo & conditioner combo – Aloe Vera again! And I bought Sukin’s Purifying Shampoo. These 3 products were £1 each.

I bought Garnier’s Honey Flower Cleansing Milk + Toner. These products were on special (Save 1/3 at Superdrug’s), and they were £2.29 each. Superdrug’s Cocoa Butter & Vanilla Body Scrub was £1. It looks like the entire line is going to be discontinued. 😦

I fell in love with Caolion’s charcoal face soap, and I really want to try more products with charcoal. So I bought this massive 195g Yes To Tomatoes Soap. It was £4.99 (Holland and Barrett). I picked up 3 Superdrug face masks (Manuka honey, charcoal, Dead Sea clay).  These were 99p each, but there was also a 3 for 2 deal, so I paid £1.98 for these 3 masks.

I also got 2 Skin Republic Spoil Yourself With Bubbles sheet masks. They’re £4.99 each, but they were a free gift with purchase (free when you buy 3 skin care products). I received 2 sheet masks because I bought 6 skin care items. 🙂

Oh, I also bought 2 new duvet cover sets. These were £14 each (king size) and I picked them up at my local Asda store (the photos are from Asda’s web site). Yes, this isn’t beauty related, but I’m so happy with the good quality of these sets that I wanted to say… if you’re looking for new duvet cover sets, you need to swing by your local Asda – they have dozens of amazing prints!

Back to the beauty stuff! Have you tried any of these products? Or would you like to try any of these products? Feel free to let me know your thoughts. And thanks for reading!

Nail Of The Day – Models Own Asscher Blue, Rimmel 60 Seconds 311 Caramel Cupcake, NYC Expert Last 154 Midnight Confetti / Nail Art Challenge #22 Inspired By A Song

upload-1Hi there! Today’s post is the next chapter of the 31 Days Nail Art Challenge which I’m doing as a lifetime challenge.

This mani is challenge #22 Inspired By A Song. And – you may have guessed it already – that song is The Last Unicorn. 🙂

For this mani I painted my nails with Rimmel 60 Seconds 311 Caramel Cupcake (accent nail =  ring finger on the right hand) and Models Own Asscher Blue (the remaining 9 nails).

Asscher Blue is a poor quality polish. It dries extremely slow – and I had to apply four coats to get decent coverage. The Rimmel polish is fantastic – perfect brush, perfect formula, fully opaque in one easy coat.

The glitter polish I used to enhance the unicorn magic is NYC Expert Last 154 Midnight Confetti. This is a fantastic glitter polish – it looks great and despite being glittery, this polish feels perfectly smooth on my nails.

The unicorn on my ring finger is a decal – but you probably guessed that already. I only did an accent nail on my right hand. That’s because the song is about the last unicorn and not the last unicorns. So yes, all the nails on my left hand are blue and glittery.

How do you like this mani? I like it and I think it turned out better than I had expected. Feel free to let me know what you think. And thanks for stopping by!
