Nail Of The Day – Primark PS… Nail Polish Snow White & Stamping With Nicole Diary ND 076

Hi there! I’ve got a short Nail Of The Day post for you today. Since we’re just days away from Halloween, I thought I’d share this mani now – just in case you’re looking for Halloween nail art inspiration.

Alrighty! For this mani I painted my nails with Primark PS… Nail Polish Snow White (2 coats). I have a number of white Primark polishes and most of them are one-coaters, and they’re much better than the considerably more pricey stuff out there!

For the images I used my Nicole Diary ND 076 stamping plate. The red polish I stamped with is Manhattan Quick Dry 46K.

I liked how this mani turned out. No, I loved it! This stamping plate is… 😍 🔥 💖

Will you do a spooky Halloween mani? If you’d like to share your ideas with me, please do so via the comments. And thanks for stopping by!

Boots Botanics All Bright Night Cream

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Boots Botanics All Bright Hydrating Night Cream for people with normal or dry skin. This face cream promises to brighten and to hydrate skin. Here’s what I think about this product…

Unfortunately, I had to bin this face cream. A few weeks ago my eyes started to swell up. It was bad! Fortunately, I have a prescription for steroids, so I was able to take care of my eyes as soon as I noticed what was happening, and yes, I was able to prevent a full-blown angioedema. However, I also thought that a new beauty product might be to blame.

Since I started to use a few new products and new makeup brushes around the same time (silly me), I stopped using all of the new products and I went back to a full Olay skin care regime. Then I re-introduced the new products – 1 product or tool at a time, and no more than 1 new product or tool every 5 days. I also kept track of every single product and tool that I used around my eyes. 👍

5 weeks later I finally had my answer – it was this night cream that caused a terrible skin reaction. Whilst I love Boots’ Botanics All Bright Day Cream and a few more products from their All Bright collection, I won’t go anywhere near this night cream again.

Jennifer Lopez Glow Eau De Toilette

Hi there! Today’s post is about Jennifer Lopez Glow Eau De Toilette.

I’ve had this fragrance in my stash for ages, and I’ve never even given it a try – until this summer.

Jennifer Lopez Glow contains orange blossom, neroli and grapefruit (top notes), tuberose, jasmine and rose (heart notes), as well as sandalwood, amber, musk, orris root and vanilla (base notes).

What does the fragrance smell like? It’s difficult to say! It smells soapy, powdery, a little musky and strangely clean. It leaves my clothes and scarves smelling like bubblegum. The fragrance is beautiful, and the “leftover” bubblegum scent is incredibly addictive.

I’m pretty sure I’ll finish my bottle of Glow over the next 4 weeks, and I can definitely see myself buying it again!

Jennifer Lopez Glow Eau De Toilette is available as 30, 50 and 100ml. Prices vary quite a bit – depending on where you shop.

Nail Of The Day – Revlon Colorstay 290 Midnight & Rainbow Foils

Hi there! I’ve got a short and sweet Nail Of The Day post for you today.

For this mani I painted my nails with 2 coats of Revlon Colorstay 290 Midnight. This polish is gorgeous. I love everything about it – the colour, the formula, the finished look…

I decided to do a foil mani. I used some leftover rainbow foil, and I was super happy with the result.

Unfortunately, the photos didn’t do the mani justice. It’s difficult to take photos of foil manis this time of year. Natural light is already scarce, and this photo shows why it’s next to impossible to capture a foil mani in artificial light…

Anyhoo… onto the next mani! And thanks for reading! 🙂

Haul! New Stuff From Thierry Mugler, Cacharel, Bvlgari, Dead Sea Collection, Faith In Nature, etc.

Hi there! I haven’t done a haul post in a while – and I don’t even know why. But today’s post is about some of the stuff I picked up over the past few weeks.

Superdrug Vitamin C Revitalising Jam Face Mask & Superdrug Refreshing Cleansing Pads. These products are £4.99 each, but I picked them up when they were on a Buy 1 Get 2nd Half Price promotion.

Dead Sea Collection Anti Wrinkle Retinol Day & Night Creams. I think these ones were £4.99 each, but I’m not sure. Either way, I found these at Home Bargains.

Dead Sea Collection Anti Wrinkle Facial Serum. Also £4.99, I believe. Yes, Home Bargains. And there’s Bvlgari Omnia Paraiba£24 at Debenhams.

Palmolive Pampering Clay & Palmolive Purifying Clay shower gels for £1 each (Tesco).

Thierry Mugler Alien Fusion limited summer edition for £41 at Boots, and Cacharel Amor Amor for £31.50 at Debenhams.

Faith In Nature Lavender Soap & Faith In Nature Aloe Vera Soap. These were £1.50 each at Boots.

I’m looking forward to using these products. Apart from Amor Amor, all these products are new to me! Have you tried any of these products or would you like to try them? Feel free to comment, and thanks for reading!

NSPA Luscious And Juicy Red Cherry Daily Refresh Shower Scrub

Hi there! Today’s post is about this NSPA Luscious And Juicy Red Cherry Daily Refresh Shower Scrub.

I love NSPA products in general, but I can’t with those terribly long names…

Anyhoo, let’s focus on the product! I’ve been using this shower scrub on and off for 2 weeks now, and I think it’s actually very good!

This scrub is packed with small exfoliating particles. This means that it’s quite effective. However, the scrub isn’t too harsh, and I think it’s definitely OK to use it on a daily basis. I’m using this scrub 2-3 times per week, and I think this is perfectly sufficient for me.

The cherry fragrance is sweet and natural. I’ve come across quite a few nasty cherry fragrances over the past 20+ years, so this one was a very nice suprise!

I’m enjoying this body scrub a lot, and I will use it up for sure! NSPA Luscious And Juicy Red Cherry Daily Refresh Shower Scrub is available as 225ml. I paid 79p (Home Bargains).
