Top 5 Favourite Nail Polishes + Nail Polish Collection

Hi Guys,

Today I am doing my Top 5 Favourite Nail Polishes I own!

From left to right Its Lillibet’s Jubilee by Butter London, Fiji by Essie, Call me Maybe by Chi Chi Cosmetics, Pacific Blue by Sally Hansen and Mint Royale by FCUK.

These colours would have to be my most used. They are all so different but all so practical.

I also have a large number of nail polishes as prior to my makeup obsession I had a very serious nail obsession!!

Over the space of a few months I reckon I collected over 100 nail polishes and spend over $500 on nail polish, crazy right! Mum would scoff at me everytime I came home with more nail polishes!

What are your top nail polish colours?

Until next time..

February Favourites (1-2-3-4-5) Vol. #1

Hi Guys,

So today I am bringing you my February Favourites and I know February isn’t even over yet but I have come up with something new and I want to share it with you :) I’m going to call it my 1-2-3-4-5 Favourites.

So as the name implies I am going to give you…

1 favourite Scent

2 favourite Lifestyle items

3 favourite Bloggers

4 favourite YouTuber’s

5 favourite Beauty Products

 

So here goes, as some of you may know I recently went to Hawaii in holidays and while I was over there I picked up some amazing beauty products. So for my favourite scent this month I am choosing my Victoria Secret Incredible perfume mist. This has such a beautiful sweet smell and being a mist its easy to chuck in my handbag and apply during the day at my convenience.  

Image

My two favourite lifestyle products for this month is my 24 lipstick container and my brush holder from ikea. These products are just so handy and save me so much time and space. They make my beauty items easy access and this makes it so much easier than rummaging through a box to find the lipstick I want to wear. The brush holder doesn’t hold all the brushes but it does hold the ones I don’t use on a day-to-day basis so when im wanting to do something a little bit tricky this is where I go.  

Image

I’m beauty blog obsessed so it was not hard at all picking three amazing beauty blogs for you guys. I have selected Kate from Kflowermaquille, Joanna from Joannaloves and Maria from Amriaa. I have been following these girls on WordPress since I started blogging back in May last year. I would check these pages on a daily/weekly basis as I always love their posts and want to keep updated. If you haven’t already go check them out :)

Like my beauty blogger section, it was not hard at all to pick my favourite YouTuber’s of the month. These are my all-time favourites but next month I will share with you some of the new YouTube accounts I have been loving. I have picked Shannon Harris from Shaaanxo, Lauren Curtis from Lozcurtis, Karissa Pukas from Satnightsalrite and Chloe Morello from Chloe Morello :) These beauty gurus are well known YouTuber’s and I’m sure you know all of them but if you don’t please go check them out :)

And now for what we have been waiting for *drumroll please* my favourite beauty picks for the month! I have picked MAC Saint Germain Lipstick, Benefits Gimme Brow, Butter London Lillibet’s Jubilee, Elf Studio Blush in Peachy Keen and Models Prefer Blush Brush.

I have previously mentioned my love for MAC’s Saint Germain and have done a review previously that you can go check out, I just find it’s the perfect colour for me and really brightens up an outfit. Benefit’s Gimme Brow is a well known product which has a lot of hype about it, I think its cause its just so easy to use and apply. To get the perfect brow can take quite a long time to do if your applying wax and powder so this is for those who just want a quick fix, its as simple as running the mascara-like wand through your brows. Butter London produces such amazing pigmented nail polish and Lillibet’s Jubilee is no exception. I have been loving it this month as its silver colour makes it so wearable as an everyday nail colour. Don’t you just love those beauty products that surprise you?! That’s how I feel about Elf’s blush, it was a surprise for me to fall in love with a blush this quickly. I’m not going to lie I’m not a huge blush fan, I love my golden bronzers, so that’s why it was such a huge shock when I fell inlove with this blush. Its such a beautiful peach colour which looks very natural on the cheeks. Lastly, its my blush brush from Model’s Prefer. I didn’t have high hopes for this brush, the only reason I picked it up was cause its was 40% off at a Priceline sale. I don’t really know much about Model’s Prefer but as it was such a cheap brush and I didn’t have a good blush brush I decided to pick it up. I have been loving this brush and will definitely go back to repurchase more brushes from Model’s Prefer as they quality is great!

So there you have it, my first 1-2-3-4-5 monthly favourites. Let me know if you liked this type of post. I enjoyed sharing not only my beauty product favourites but my favroutite bloggers and YouTuber’s as well.

Until next time..

Makeup Haul – Priceline

So last night I went out for Thursday night shopping with a friend and we found ourselves in Priceline. Not even kidding we would have been there for like an hour so I just wanted to share quickly the products I got.

Image

Firstly, I got the L’Oreal true match foundation because I had heard so many beauty guru’s on YouTube rave about it. I put it on this morning and so far so good. It is very light on the skin but the coverage isn’t as good and I hoped. (Side note: if you were wondering I got shade W2 and it was $24.33 on sale)

Image

Secondly, I picked up eyebrow gel. Never used a product before so it was weird when I first applied it but I definitely like it.

Image

Thirdly, I got an essence lip gloss. Its a nice nude colour so I cant wait to try it out.

Image

 I also got three amazing nail polishes. I swear I have way too many but they were only $2.75 and they look so fresh and bright so how could I refuse.

Image

Last but not least,ImageI got a Manicare blending brush. Haven’t used this one yet so cant wait to see what its like!

 

Anyways that’s me. Have a good weekend lovely’s.

You know when you’re doing your nails and you’ve waited ages for them to dry, think you’re safe and NEK MINNIT those beautiful fresh nails are ruined because they weren’t dry and you’ve knocked them against something!!!

Cute Polka-dot Nails

Hi Guys,

So being one of three girl daughters I am notoriously girly. I love girly things; doing my hair, makeup, nails, going shopping. So I just wanted to quickly show you a quick nail art design that is easy and fun and you are sure to get complimented on.

Step 1: Apply one base coat (this step is totally optional).

Step 2: Apply two coats of any colour.

Step 3. Get a bobby bin (yes a bobby bin, so easy!) and using another colour, dip it in the polish and dot and many dots on your nail as you like.

Step 4: Let it dry completely and finish it off with a top coat.

Taaa-daaaaaa cute manicure complete!

Here is a photo of mine!
