Topshop's Stars & Stripes Polish

Topshop's Stars & Stripes Polish is an awesome red, white and blue themed polish. It looks like the American flag has burst all over your nails-in a pretty way of course!

This polish is really cool as it has red strands of matte glitter, white specs of matte glitter, blue hexagonal matte glitter particles and large white stars. I have painted this glitter polish over a black base which I think looks great.

The polish applied well and I strategically placed stars onto my nails rather than trying to paint then on. This technique worked well. The polish dried really quickly and I have to say that the corners of the stars weren't too catchy.

This is such a special polish. I've never seen a polish like this before from any other brand. I love that Topshop has once again brought out something different and amazing. I highly recommend trying this polish as it is just awesome.

What do you think about Topshop's Stars & Stripes polish? Have you ever seen a red, white and blue American flag polish before? I would love to heart from you!

Orly Peony Glitter Polish

I've got an awesome Orly polish called Peony to show you today. It is an extremely sparkly pink holographic glitter polish. It is so gorgeous when it is on the nails. 

I feel like, as usual, the photos just don't do it justice! Hopefully you can imagine what it's like in real life.

I did find that it was quite difficult to get enough glitter strands on the brush without having too much clear polish on it too. I wanted lots of glitter but didn't want my nails to be overloaded with polish. With some care though it didn't take me too long to get my desired result so it was worth the time spent.

What do you guys think about Orly's Peony polish? Do you like glitter polish with glitter strands in it? I'd love to hear what you think!

NEW VIDEO: Models Own Chrome Collection-Haul & Review

I absolutely adore Models Own's new Chrome Collection Polish so I knew I needed to share my thoughts on them with you! They are such great polishes- I am basically raving about them throughout this video.

Let me know if you have tried any of them!

You can watch my new video here:)

This Works Dream Team Set

I had been tempted by the This Works gift sets before and finally this Christmas I bought myself one. In the Dream Team set I got the Deep Sleep Pillow Spray and the Deep Sleep Stress Less.

 I was sceptical about whether I would find them beneficial but I have heard Lily Pebbles and Anna from
Vivianna Does Make Up rave about them in relation to sleep, relaxation and travel anxiety.

I am going to try them out properly and let you know how I get on.

Have any of you tried either of these products before? I would love to know whether they worked for you!

Marks & Spencer Jewel Heart Necklace

My mum picked out this Jewel Heart Necklace as a christmas present for me from Marks and Spencer. I'm not sure if it's something that I would have chosen for myself as I like more flamboyant statement necklaces. However, I tried it on and I really like it. It's cute!

It's really cool that the fastening of the necklace is at the front-it makes it more unique. It's a really simple necklace but it looks very sweet when it's on. It's not to heavy which is great and it sits nicely.

It is a nice addition to my ever growing necklace collection (I must not purchase anymore for a while).

What do you guys think of this necklace? Do you like its more subtle design?

Topshop's Snow Cone Polish

Topshop's Snow Cone Polish is possibly THE most gorgeous polish that I have bought from Topshop so far. 

This amazing turquoise/blue polish looks ten times prettier in real life. I just can't capture how gorgeous it is. It changes when the light hits it and it's shimmer is super sparkly.

This polish needs about three quick coats of polish to look totally opaque but it's worth it. I didn't want to overload my nails with polish which is why I painted them with three moderate coats of polish. The end result is beautiful. 

The brush applied the polish perfectly and the polish dries really quickly too. I wore this polish for a whole week and it lasted without chipping - even after lots of housework!

I adore this polish and I think you might too! I highly recommend it!

What do you think about this polish? Have you got any other polishes like this one?

Tanya Burr's Fairytale Glitter Polish

Tanya Burr's Fairytale Polish is an awesome pink glitter polish. It consists of a mixture of large and small hexagonal glitter pieces which make it interesting.  I painted this polish over a black base and I think it looks great. 

This polish has a lovely formula so applied smoothly to my nails. I didn't have too much trouble with strategic glitter placement and the brush provided good glitter coverage. This polish dried quickly and had a smooth finish which was great.

I can't wait to wear this polish again as it is so pretty! It's definitely one of my favourites from Tanya's nail polish collection.

What do you guys think of Tanya's Fairytale  polish? Have you got a favourite Tanya Burr polish? Let me know your thoughts!

NEW VIDEO: This Or That Tag

Hey guys!

I was tagged by my lovely friend Chantelle from & to do the This Or That Tag Video.  It was fun to film but so hard to choose between the two choices given for each question.

You can watch my new video here:)   I hope you enjoy it!

Navy Ted Baker Make Up Bag

Instead of buying proper make up storage I have decided to store my products in Ted Baker Bags which I can either display or tidy away into drawers. Certain products are in certain bags so I know where to find them. Then when the make up/wash bags that I use on a daily basis become a little tired I can swap them with the bags I'm using for storage and organisation.

This is how I have justified adding this navy medium Ted Baker Make Up Bag to my collection. 

I love that this make up bag is a metallic navy blue colour with a gold bow on it and a big jewel. It reminds me of the film Aladdin. 

Anyway, the point of this post is to show you this gorgeous make up bag and to say that Ted Baker make up and wash bags are such great quality and are a great size. They are not just a hyped beauty accessory-they are actually really useful. The proportions of the bags are fantastic so they fit everything you need into them-unlike other make up bags. This bag has been perfectly created so you can find all of your bits easily.

I highly recommend Ted Baker make up/wash bags but I would suggest trying to find them during the john Lewis Sale as you can get them for a much more reasonable price.

Have you ever tried out Ted Baker Make Bags or Wash Bags? I'd love to hear from you!

Nails Inc's Alexa Cashmere Polish

Nails Inc's Alexa Cashmere Polish is a gorgeous pearlescent pink polish. I don't have another pale pink polish like this in my collection. It has a very slight granular texture to it but I really like it.

The formula was lovely and this polish applied really well to my nails. It was a great consistency and the brush spread the polish nicely. It dried quickly and was hard wearing which was great.

This Polish had a very luxurious feel to it. Overall, I really liked it.

What do you think about  this polish? Have you tried Nails Inc's Alexa Cashmere Polish before?

Topshop's Sweet Treat Glitter Polish

Topshop's Sweet Treat Glitter Polish is another spectacular (yes I just used the word spectacular) polish which has made me even more addicted to their polish than before.

This polish consists of turquoise, yellow gold and rose gold glitter particles which I think is a very unique combination. These colours work so well together.

The formula, as always, was fantastic. The polish applied beautifully to the nails and the brush dispersed the glitter fairly evenly. This polish dried really quickly and was extremely hard wearing.

Again, I can't rave about Topshop polish enough. I feel like I am turning into their number one fan. 

I highly recommend this polish-it's so cool!

What do you guys think of Topshop's Sweet Treat Glitter Polish?  Do you like the mix of colours of glitter? I would love to hear from you!

Marks & Spencer's Large Sparkly Statement Necklace

I received this lovely, sparkly large statement necklace from Marks and Spencer's for christmas. I love how extravagant it is although it is rather heavy!

The different shaped jewels look so great next to each other and the two tiers of jewels look very pretty. This necklace is quite bold yet retains its beauty.

What do you think about this necklace? Are you bothered by wearing large, chunky necklaces?

Eve Snow's Nefertiti Glitter Polish

Eve Snow's Nefertiti polish is an absolutely beautiful silver and turquoise glitter polish. This polish is pretty special as it has tiny silver specs of glitter, turquoise hexagonal glitter particles and silver holographic strands of glitter.

I painted this polish over a black base so the glitter would stand out. As usual, it was hard to capture the awesomeness of this polish in these photos. It looks even better in real life.

This polish applied really nicely to the nails and I didn't find it difficult to get a nice even coverage of glitter. The formula was great as it wasn't too thick or too thin. It dried pretty smoothly and quickly which is excellent. The brush applied the glitter well. I cannot fault this polish at all.

What do you think of Eve Snow's Nefertiti polish? Have you ever tried Eve Snow polish before? I would love to hear from you!

OOTD: Denim Shirt

Here is a quick outfit of the day for you guys. I absolutely love this denim shirt that I bought from Topshop. It is extremely comfy and is long enough to cover your bum if you want to wear it with just leggings.

I really love the Warehouse necklace that I am wearing with it. I think the casualness of the denim and the extravagance of the necklace look great worn together.

What do you think about this outfit? Do you like to wear statement necklaces with collard shirts? Let me know what you think!

Ted Baker Pink Wash Bag/Make Up Bag

If you have read my blog for a while you might know that I love Ted Baker's make up and wash bags. I just ignored the hype around them until I got one of their make up bags and I have been in love ever since.

This pink wash bag is just bluming gorgeous in colour and style. It's such a great size for keeping hair brushes and make up brushes in as well as make up remover and cleanser. You can definitely fit your shampoo in this bag.

I never thought I would rave about these but they have got me well and truly addicted to their awesomeness. They are extremely practical yet beautiful.

They can be a bit pricey but you can get some total bargains in the John Lewis sale which is usually where I make my purchases. 

If you need a new make up bag or wash bag I highly recommend Ted Baker's great collection.

What do you think of this bag? Have you ever lusted after Ted Baker's make up/wash bags?

NEW VIDEO: The Friends Tag

Hey guys!

I hope you are all having a lovely Sunday!

My new video is The Friends Tag because I love watching Friends and I know a lot of you do to. I have basically been watching it for the last 20 years so decided that it was definitely worthy of being featured on my channel.

I hope you like it! You can watch my new video here:)

Nails Inc's Alexa Hearts Polish

Oh my gosh- Nails Inc's Alexa Hearts Polish is just adorable. I think that less is more with this polish and I maybe tried to overload my nails with too many hearts. I still think it looks cute though.

I painted this polish over Nails Inc's Alexa Cashmere polish and I think it looks awesome.

I found that you can't really paint on the hearts to your nails. I scooped them out of the bottle with the polish brush and placed them onto my nails with a cocktail stick which seemed to work really well.

You need to be careful not to overload your nails with the clear polish also. 

I sealed my hearts onto my nails with topcoat so hopefully they won't fall off or catch on my clothes. They don't stick out as much as the stars do.

I really really like Nails Inc's Alexa Hearts polish and think it is worth the effort.

What do you guys think of Nails Inc's Alexa Hearts Polish? Do you think I've added too many hearts to my nails? Let me know your thoughts!

Blue Chrome & Multicoloured Glitter Nails

Oh my gosh I absolutely love Models Own's new Chrome Collection. I have been wearing Chrome Blue polish by Models Own all week and I really don't want to clean it off!

I have worn it with Barry M's Atlantis glitter polish which is so gorgeous. The pink glitter particles look awesome with blue Models Own Chrome polish.

What do you think about this polish combination? Have you tried either of these polishes?
