Topshop's Cosmic Girl Glitter Nail Polish

Topshop's Cosmic Girl is an amazing silver and blue full coverage glitter nail polish. It is absolutely gorgeous when it is on the nails and is one of my new favourite nail polishes.

I painted on about 3 coats of this polish to make sure that my nails were totally covered in the glitter. I have to say that the formula of this polish is fantastic. It is really smooth and glides on to the nails. It dries really quickly and is really hard wearing. I found when I am cleaning it off after wearing it for a week that it has a crumbly consistency. This means that if you cover your nails with nail polish remover soaked cotton wool the polish dissolves and you are just basically wiping loose glitter from your nails. It took a lot less time to remove than normal glitter polishes do!

I highly recommend this gorgeous polish. It is definitely worth buying.

What do you think of Topshop's Cosmic Girl  glitter polish? Have you tried any of Topshop's nail polishes before?


Nails Inc's New Globe Walk Snowglobe Polish

Nails Inc's New Globe Walk is an awesome golden Snowglobe glitter polish. The idea behind the Snowglobe polish is that like a real Snow Globe the amount of glitter that floats around is dependent on how hard you shake the bottle. Therefore, how much glitter coverage you get can be controlled by how hard you shake the polish bottle.

As you can see, I opted for a less is more approach as I wanted a slightly less full coverage glitter. I painted this polish over a lovely red shimmery polish. I actually found this polish really fun to apply though I kept shaking the bottle between each coat of polish to keep the amount of glitter I applied consistent.

The formula for this polish is obviously a bit different to  Nails Inc's normal formula but I still found that it applies nicely. I found that this polish dries really quickly and lasted really well on my nails. I definitely recommend trying this polish because it is really nice and a pretty cool idea.

What do you guys think about Nails Inc's New Globe Walk Snowglobe Polish?   Have any of you tried this polish her? I love to know what you guys think!


Seventeen's Silver Holographic Glitter Polish

Seventeen's Silver Holographic Glitter is such a great, sparkly polish. If you are in need of some holographic silver sparkle I highly recommend this polish.

This polish consists of a combination of a fine holographic silver glitter and a larger hexagonal holographic silver glitter. It has a brilliant formula which is the perfect consistency with a glitter to polish ratio that is just so right. The brush is excellent for applying the glitter evenly. I found that this polish dries quickly and lasts for at least a week on my nails.

What do you guys think about Seventeen's Silver Holographic Glitter Polish? Do you have a favourite glitter polish right now? It's always great to hear from you guys!


Topshop Eye Set

I was keen to try one of Topshop's festive make up sets so I bought this lovely sparkly pink one. It includes three Topshop Smoke Sticks and one Magic Eyeliner. I haven't actually tried any Topshop make up before so I'm looking forward to using these. If only I could do eyeliner like a pro. The Smoke Sticks seem to be lovely and smooth so hopefully they will apply really nicely. I will make sure that I let you know how I get on with these.

Have you guys ever tried any of these Topshop cosmetics before? I'd love to know which items of Topshop make up you swear by!




Seventeen's Multi Coloured Tinsel Polish

I absolutely love Seventeen's Multi Coloured Tinsel Glitter Polish! I wore this polish so much over the festive season and it is so awesome I am pretty sure I will be wearing it throughout the year.

This polish has a fine blue glitter base with larger blue hexagonal glitter particles. There is a fine pink glitter which runs through it along with silver holographic strands of glitter. I like to paint this polish over a black base.  This amazing blend of glitter makes for gorgeous sparkly nails. 

This polish has an excellent formula meaning that the polish glides beautifully onto the nails. The glitter to polish ratio is spot on and  the brush is fantastic for even application. I have worn this polish for over a week before and it has lasted amazingly well. I really love it and highly recommend it.

Have any of you tried Seventeen's Mutli Coloured Tinsel Glitter Polish before? I love hearing from you guys so let me know that you think!


River Island Cage Necklace

I don't have any other necklaces like this one from River Island. It is incredibly intricate yet has a sturdy feel to it. The way the necklace has been made it almost feels like some type of caging. 

I love that there is a mixture of dark and light stones making the necklace extra sparkly. I originally thought all of the dark stones on this necklace were black however you will see in some of the photographs that there are some beautiful deep blue stones too.

This necklace has a slight gothic feel about it which means it can give a plain outfit a bit of an edge.

What do you guys think about this necklace from River Island?  It would be great to hear your thoughts!




New Color Club Holographic Nail Polish

If you have read any of my previous posts on Color Club's Holographic Nail Polishes you will know that I think these are the most amazing polishes. Color Club have managed to create a beautiful highly pigmented formula that is crazily holographic. 

I ordered three more of their holographic polishes so I can add them to my collection. I bought Cosmic Fate which is a bronze shade, Kismet which is a yellow gold shade and Cherubic which seems to be a mix of bronze & yellow gold.

I am sure that these gorgeous holographic polishes won't disappoint. I will be posting reviews of each of these polishes soon.

What are your thoughts on my new Color Club Holographic Nail Polishes? Do you have a favourite out of these three shades? Have you ever tried any of these polishes before? I love hearing from you!




MAC's Diva Fierce Nail Polish

MAC's Diva Fierce Nail Polish is really unique pale pink, nude and golden glitter strand polish. This polish has a combination of matte pale pink glitter strands, matte nude glitter strands and gold glossy glitter strands. Here I have painted it over a copper polish and I think it looks really cool.

I have not been a huge fan of glitter strand polishes in the past but I think MAC have created something that is a lot more cutting edge.

MAC's Diva Fierce Glitter Strand Nail Polish applies really well to the nails. With an excellent clear polish formula there is nothing gloopy or watery about this polish. As I have stated about MAC's other glitter polishes they seem to have the perfect polish to glitter ratio. I also found that this polish  dries really quickly and is quite long lasting. 

What do you think about the look that MAC's  Diva Fierce Glitter Strand Polish creates? I'd love to hear from you guys!


MAC's Tropical Glitter Nail Polish

MAC's Tropical Nail Polish is a lovely deep bronze full coverage glitter polish. It was so difficult to capture it's beauty on camera due to the lack of daylight in Scotland right now. It's so frustrating!

I found MAC's Tropical Polish to have a great formula with the perfect glitter to polish ratio. It wasn't too thick or too thin which meant it applied really well to my nails. The brush did an excellent job of evenly distributing the glitter over my nails. This polish dries really smoothly and quickly. It is also pretty hard wearing which is perfect for super busy people like us.

I think that this polish is really nice and it certainly meets the high standard of polish that I have come to expect from MAC.

What do you guys think about MAC's Tropical Glitter Polish? Have you tried this polish before? Let me know what your thoughts are in the comments section below!



New Topshop Polishes

I have so much love for Topshop's Nail Polish. I am constantly checking online to see if they have released any new nail polishes. I discovered these three beautiful sparkly polishes before Christmas time and put them straight onto my Christmas wish list.

I bought Flash (Silver glitter), Cosmic Girl (Blue & silver glitter) and Up In Smoke (Purple glitter). They all look awesome and I have no doubt that they will have amazing formulas.

I cannot wait to try these Topshop Glitter Polishes! What do you think about them? Have you tried any of these three polishes or  any other Topshop polishes before? I would love to hear what you think!



Cath Kidston Penguin Mug

Uh oh! My Cath Kidston addiction has struck again! I bought this adorable Penguin Mug for my Mum as Christmas present and I think she loves it as much as I do. This mug is so great for transitioning from Christmas mugs to winter mugs in January. That may sound like a ridiculous statement but I'm sure we all agree that when we have to put away our special festive drinking apparatus it is really sad. So why not brighten up January with some cute wee penguins?!

This is such a sweet mug! What do you guys think about this Cath Kidston Penguin Mug? Is it something you would like to spend your winter months drinking out of? I'd love to hear your thoughts!


MAC Warm Neutrals Palette

I finally bought the MAC Warm Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette after months of consideration. I knew I really did want to buy it I was just trying to resist it. I actually think the shades in this palette are much better suited to me than the shades in the Cool Neutrals Palette which my Mum bought me for my birthday last year. 

Ultimately, I couldn't resist the beautiful warm matte and shimmery shades in this eyeshadow palette. I love that there are a mixture of pink shades, brown shades and golden shades in this palette. I feel like this makes it every neutral eyeshadow fans dream palette. I am very excited to start using it.

What do you guys think of MAC's Warm Neutrals Eyeshadow Palette? Do you have this palette or would you like to buy it? Let me know what you think!




NOTD: Metallic Green with Gold/Lilac Glitter

Before Christmas I wanted to do something slightly different with my nails. I used Models Own's Disco Pants Paradise Garage Polish and Nails Inc's Buckingham Square Glitter Polish. I think that this vibrant metallic green polish and these flakes of lilac and gold glitter seem to go together really well and create more of a unique nail look.

What do you guys think about my Metallic Green & Golden/Lilac Glitter NOTD? I would love to hear your thoughts!

River Island Velvet Tassel Necklace

I ordered this Velvet Tassel Necklace from River Island online. When I first got this necklace I wasn't very sure how much I liked it but it's totally grown on me and now I love it. 

It is pretty unusual in that it has a black velvet cord running through it which I think is really cool as I love velvet. I really wasn't sure about these Amber coloured beads but I'm fine with them now. Of course, I can't get enough sparkle so the silver diamant√© satisfy my need for prettiness. 

What do you guys think about my Velvet Tassel Necklace from River Island? Is it the type of statement necklace that you would wear?

MAC's Cocktail Hour Nail Polish

MAC's Cocktail Hour Nail Polish is an awesome shimmery copper polish. It's so pretty I didn't want to clean it off.

Cocktail Hour has a lovely smooth formula which is not too thick or too thin. It it glides on to the nails beautifully and is amazingly pigmented. You only need two coats of this polish for totally opaque and streak free nails. It has a great brush too. It also dries really quickly and is hard wearing.

There is nothing not to love about this polish. It is so great! I highly recommend it and I'm extremely impressed with MAC's nail polish range. Especially their glitter and metallic polishes.

What do you think about MAC's Cocktail Hour Nail Polish? Do you own this polish? Let me know what you think! 


MAC's Fabulous Fete Nail Polish

MAC's Fabulous Fete Nail Polish is a beautiful silver shimmer polish with a very slight hint of gold through it. This polish is just beautiful. 

Fabulous Fete has an amazingly smooth formula which applies effortlessly to the nails. The formula is totally on point. The brush creates the perfect match for polish application. It leaves your nails opaque after just two coats of polish because it is so excellently pigmented. It dries fairly quickly and it lasts a week on my nails really well without chipping.

Overall, Fabulous Fete is indeed fabulous!

What are your opinions on MAC's Fabulous Fete Nail Polish? Is it a polish you would like to get?


Escentric Molecules Molecule 1 Perfume

I have already done a post about how much I love a Escentric Molecules Molecule 1 perfume but I wanted to share the love with you again as I got a new bottle for Christmas.

Escentric Molecules Molecule 1 perfume is a unisex fragrance which when combined with our natural pheromones smells different on each individual. It has a lovely woody, spiced scent initially and then it changes slightly. It is honestly one of the most gorgeous fragrances that I have ever come across and I find it really comforting. My mum loves smelling it in the mornings when I use it before I go off to work. I have found over the last two years that it is really long lasting which I find ideal when I'm busy at work.

If you are looking for a new perfume and you don't mind woody scents I would highly recommend this. It might smell completely different on you as it does to when I'm wearing it.

Have you guys tried Escentric Molecules Molecule 1 perfume before? It would be awesome to know what you thought of it!



Urban Decay's Flushed Palette in Streak

I have only ever tried Urban Decay's eyeshadow so I am really looking forward to trying their Flushed palette in the shade Streak. 

In this palette you get a bronzer, highlighter and a lovely blusher. I am hoping that the pigmentation will be just as good as their Eyeshadows and the application will also be super easy. I really hope this palette will aid me in learning to contour as I have been wanting to learn how to contour for a long time.

Have you tried Urban Decay's Flushed palette in Streak? Or any of the other Flushed palettes? It would be great to hear your thoughts on them!
