Thank heavens for faux nails...


So yes, let's carry on talking about nails, I mean, we all love manies and pedies don't we... So I got me a box of Nailene 200 and tried them for at least a week before I posted anything on here, and I gotta say I am quite impressed and pretty much already in love... I've had falsies before and they just felt awkward, uncomfortable and sometimes even painful, you could feel the aliens on your fingers... eww... twas just horrible.
I have a thing where I absolutely HATE my feet being touched, being too warm, being too cold, hurt, uncomfortable...etc... so having alien nails on my toes was just EWW! I normally keep my toenails short because like I said before my feet need to be comfy. I'm not gonna say which faux nails were the evil bastards, but I will talk about the ones that made my toes happy and beautiful!

Nailene 200... for £8 you can't complain, they look so real, they stay put for a WEEK... and they are absolutely comfortable, you'll forget that they're falsies until they actually fall off. The nail polish no matter how cheap it does not chip off and they are super flexible! What more can I say??? I'm in love.

Hello everybody... Let's start with nails...


So, I decided to share my boredom with all of you, boredom and new hobby/vice whatever you make-up/fashion geeks call it out there... I've been wanting to start writing about something people would actually like reading about and THIS is what I came up with...

Well, let's say that was pretty much my intro to this blog, so let's start, remember this is an OPEN blog, I made it so that everyone can have their say and add in things whenever they like or tried something new in the make-up world...

So, THIS is my new discovery... The BARRY M. instant effects (black)! So...basically you paint
over your favorite nail polish base and it gives a crackly effect in whatever color you chose... I can't wait to get the silver one!

At first, when I coated my red polished nails with the black instant effects B.M I thought... my nails look as if I stuck them somewhere I shouldn't have. And you have to take into account that they do not leave a glossy finish, its actually quite matty... So if you like it to SHINE always touch up with some clear nail polish.

I also think it would look much better with a lighter base... always a much lighter base so that you can appreciate the effects a little bit better without giving the impression that you had an accident or rushed a manicure before going to where ever you are at the mo...

I will deffo be buying more colors soon!

Any comments??
