Nail Of The Day – Manhattan Last & Shine 620 Red-Y For Me?, Revlon 044 Blue Lagoon & Stamping With MoYou London Sailor 06 & 13

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

For this mani I painted my nails with Manhattan Last & Shine 620 Red-Y For Me? (2 coats, pinkies, ring fingers) and Revlon 044 Blue Lagoon (2 coats, middle and index fingers, thumbs).

I used 2 stamping plates – MoYou London Sailor 06 (large images) and MoYou London Sailor 13 (small images).

The polishes I stamped with are MoYou London Powder Blue (pinkies and ring fingers) and Revlon 902 Craving Coral (middle and index fingers, thumbs).

I really liked this mani. It was fun to look at for a few days!

Never Again – The Ultimate Beauty Duds – Part 5

Hi there! I’ve already done a few posts to tell you about some of the beauty products I didn’t like at all. But let me tell you about a few more products that I hated! 🙂

Elizavecca Gold CF-Nest Collagen Jella Pack Mask
elizavecca-collagen-jella-pack
This mask is simply awful. It makes your skin feel like it’s covered in lard. In addition, the only way to remove the mask is to rub it off. This causes the mask to flake big time (but there’s nothing else you can do) which means that you have to wash your hair after you’ve used this mask. A truly awful product!

TRESemmè Colour Revitalise Vibrant Colour Protection Conditioner – I didn’t like this conditioner at all because it made my hair go greasy quickly. And the “fragrance” was borderline unpleasant. The shampoo was OK, though.

Montagne Jeunesse 7th Heaven Charcoal Masque – this mask contains crushed walnut shells which are unsuitable for the face. Awful!

L’Oréal Elvive Fibrology Thickening Masque

L'Oreal Fibrology Masque
I could write an essay about why I didn’t like this hair masque, but I won’t. In summary, it took 24 hours for the thickening effect to kick in, and the product made my hair feel crunchy. 😠

The Body Shop Fijian Water Lotus Body Lotion – this body lotion smells really bad. I have to admit I’m not the biggest fan of lotus or water lily scents, but this is the worst lotus “fragrance” I’ve ever smelled in a product.

L’Oréal Elvive Smooth & Polish Thermo Detangling Spray – it doesn’t detangle hair, but it seems to straighten and flatten it, so if you have wavy or curly hair, this spray just ruins your hairdo…

Boots Being By The Sanctuary Spa Cloudberry & Lychee Blossom Body Mist – one of the cheapest fragrances I’ve ever smelled. I tried to give it away, but none of my colleagues wanted it…

Superdrug Red Colour Conditioner – this stuff was anti-conditioning! Truly awful! Guess what, it’s been discontinued!

Superdrug Optimum Phyto Brighter Triple Action Illuminating Black Moisturiser

This moisturiser left a grey residue on the skin. I can’t believe I actually finished it…

Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid Foundation

One of the worst foundations I’ve ever tried. Poor coverage, but cakey look, feels super silky, but impossible to blend. Rubbish!

This was part 5 of The Ultimate Beauty Duds! Whilst I’m not saying that no one could ever like any of these products (some of them are still around), I found these products to be rubbish. But if you do like any of these products, that’s good for you. Feel free to get in touch if you want to. And thanks for reading!

Reducing My Oldies Stash – Possibility Amber & Lavender Bath and Shower Body Scrub

Possibility Amber Lavender ScrubHi there! Today’s post is about Possibility’s Amber & Lavender Bath & Shower Body Scrub.

This product has been sitting in my stash for quite some time. But I enjoyed the matching shower and bath gel, so I thought it’s time to give this body scrub a try.

I’ve been using this body scrub on and off for over 2 weeks now, and have to say that I really like it!

The formula is very interesting – possibly unique! It’s a transparent gel that feels lightweight and stiff at the same time.

I really like the amber and lavender fragrance. It’s surprisingly elegant, and it reminds me of some of Imperial Leather’s dreamiest shower gels. The exfoliating effect is noticeable but gentle. This product is definitely suitable for daily use.

Possibility’s Amber & Lavender Bath & Shower Body Scrub is available as 200ml. I paid 99p (bargain store – but not sure which one).

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!

Gliss Supreme Length Shampoo & Conditioner

Hi there! Today’s post is about Gliss Hair Repair Supreme Length Shampoo & Conditioner with keratin serum and micro-repair liquids. These products are aimed at people with long hair that’s prone to damage and split ends.

Gliss Hair Repair Supreme Length Shampoo is really lovely. It feels great on my head and hair, and I’m satisfied it cleanses my hair gently. I also love the fragrance – it’s similar to Gliss’ Liquid Silk fragrance, just a bit lighter and fruitier. It’s very nice!

Gliss Hair Repair Supreme Length Conditioner is a very good conditioner. It detangles my hair with ease, and it makes my hair feel super soft and silky without weighing it down. The lovely fragrance is an added bonus!

I am very happy with these 2 products. After Aussie’s below-average Colour Mate conditioner and L’Oréal’s terrible Fibrology Air anti-conditioner, these 2 Gliss products are a real treat. They make my hair look and feel awesome. My hair is bouncy, soft and glossy. I love it!

Gliss Hair Repair Supreme Length Shampoo (250ml) & Conditioner (200ml) are available for about £1 each at Poundstores and bargain stores. I would recommend these products to everyone who’s looking for hair products that make hair soft without flattening it. I will definitely buy these hair products again!
