Black Friday at Cosmetify (AD)

AD       It's almost time for Black Friday, and this year you can grab some bargains at Cosmetify, the comparison website for leading beauty products.  Cosmetify compares prices from multiple retailers and automatically selects the cheapest, saving you time and money. Not only do they help you get bargains year round, this Black Friday you can grab your must-have products with savings of 34% off the RRP. 

Cosmetify also allows users to sign up for alerts on products to find out when they go on sale or come back in stock.  PLUS they're transparent about retailer delivery options, costs and timings to avoid
any nasty surprises at checkout.

Not yet convinced? I've showcased some of my favourite products to show you what you could get your hands on this Black Friday.

Shiny Pumpkins

[AD*]    Happy Halloween-eve! Halloween is one of my favourite holidays of the year (second only to Christmas) because I get to dress up, decorate my house, and also because it presents so many opportunities for nail art! 

This year I was asked by Naio Nails to create some Halloween nail art using their Urban Graffiti gel polishes, and I wanted to try and mix of matte and shiny with this pumpkin design. 

I've been wanting to try a matte gel top coat for ages so I made sure that was one of the polishes I chose for this collaboration, and I was like a kid marvelling when I saw that it doesn't go matte until you put it under the light. Science! (Or not science just magic who knows...). Anyway, read on to find out how I created these nails.

Glitter Stars and Moons

Happy Tuesday! I fancied doing something a little different, which is how these nails came about. I also wanted to play around with the Essie Concrete Glitters collection*, so I used them as a gradient base and created this sparkly galaxy effect.

Gelish Forever Fabulous Collection - Review + Swatches Part 2

Before I start, I just wanted to say that I am aware that this blogpost is very very delayed, but I do have a genuine reason. Just before Christmas I was in a car crash and I've had really bad whiplash ever since, which has meant that I can't paint my nails for more than an hour or two at a time before I'm in too much pain to carry on. So it's been a very slow process trying to get these swatched! Sorry if this is a bit too delayed, but I hope you like my swatches anyway. 

This is the second part of my review of the Gelish - Forever Fabulous collection*, the first part can be found here. The second half of the collection is full of colours that I would definitely associate with Marilyn Munroe, read on for all my thoughts.

Blue OPI Roses

Happy Tuesday all, only two days in and I already feel like this week is dragginnng. I've booked to go away for a few days next week and see my sister and I'm counting down the days. 

Today I've got another design for you using the OPI - Nutcracker collection*. There are so may possible colour combinations with this collection, but I absolutely love all OPI green's (or at least all the ones I own anyway) and I find they're perfect for leaves, so I knew I had to do a floral design with the collection.

Hey everyone! A quick design today using the OPI Nutcracker Collection*, I was having a play around with the collection and I wasn't really sure what I was aiming for but I'm pretty pleased with the result!

Glitter Spots

Today I want to talk about the Essie Concrete Glitters collection*, because I've totally fallen in love with it. I sat down to do some nail art with them and ended up doing three different designs because I felt so inspired by all the colours! 

This was the first design I did, and it was completely inspired by Betina Goldstein (who by the way is totally killing it at the moment!). I used all the colours from the collection except Stay Up Slate.
