Blue Zooey Deschanel Inspired Nails ♥

Hi Lovelies, As most of You probably know I LOVE Zooey Deschanel & Her hit TV Show 'New Girl'.
Everytime she Tweet's or Instagrams a Picture of Her Nails I have to try them out Myself & recreate the look.

On Her Instagram a few days ago she put this photo of some nails that she did herself.



They are an Electric Blue Nail with light blue ends that create a V shape.

My nails are only short at the moment as they are peeling & breaking alot!! >.<

For My Look I Used:



China Glaze Frostbite & Collection 2000 Electric Dreams.

First of all I did 2 coats of China Glaze Frostbite over all of My nails.


Once fully dry taking Collection 2000 Electric Dreams I swept at an angle on each side of the nail creating the desired effect on the ends.


Dont worry If You get any on Your skin, this can easily be removed with some nail varnish remover on a cotton bud.





I Love this look, It's different, quirky & You can try out lots of experiments using different Colours.

Thanks for Reading Lovelies, Have a Fab Day.

Purple Glitter Gradient Nails

Hi Lovelies, After doing My Effie Trinket Hunger Games Inspired Nails, I'm loving this Gradient Nail Effect & thought I'd do it on My Nails Today.








For this Look I used:



Purple Base: 2 Coats of China Glaze Dance Baby.
End of Nails: 2 Coats of Claire's Purple Glitter.
Ontop of Purple Glitter: 2 Coats of Barry M Hologram Hexogram.

I didn't use a sponge on the ends of My Nails like I did with My Hunger Games nails as using a glitter polish it goes on more uneven so you dont have a blunt line anyway.

Hope You like this Nail Look.

Thanks for Reading Lovelies.

Have a fab Friday & Weekend, Remember My Giveaway is coming up next week :)

New Favourite ♥ 17 Wild Curls Mascara

Hi Lovelies,
After trying out a Clinique Mascara & having it really irritate My Eyes, I went to Boots Monday on a Quest to find a New Mascara that wouldn't Irritate My Eyes & Gives Me Gorgeous Full Lashes.

I Picked up 17 Wild Curls Mascara in Wildest Black.



The first thing that caught My Eye was the Packaging, Gorgeous Leopard Print that would stand out Purrrfect in My Makeup Bag.

Now back to the Mascara... In this Mascara they do a Black & a Wildest Black, I chose the Wildest Black as I love having Big Dark Fluttering Lashes.
After applying My usual good few coats as I do with any of My Mascara's (I'm not a 1 Coat Girl) The results were just what I wanted... Longer more Fuller looking Lashes.


Omg... It's sooooo hard to get a pic of Your Lashes !! >.<

On this Mascara it also says It 'Holds Curl for up to 10 Hours' and This it did, My Lashes were looking as good as they did when I finished work to when I first applied it!

I give this Mascara 10/10, I Love It!
At Boots its only £4.00 Was £6.29.

What's Your Favourite Mascara?

Thanks for Reading, Have a Fab Day.

NOTD: China Glaze Naked !

Hi Lovelies, Sally's had an offer on all China Glaze Nail Varnishes the other day (buy one get one half price) So I had to get Me a Couple of Bottles.




Today I used The Colour Naked, It's a Pretty Pink colour with a slight shimmer to it.




I Love China Glaze Nail Varnishes as they dry quick and also last well on the nails; They also come in a huge range of colours.

The other Colour I brought was Dance Baby, which is a light purple colour, I will blog about this nail varnish soon as I try it out.

Do You have a Favourite China Glaze Nail Varnish?

Thanks for Reading,

Have a Fab Saturday.

How to Dip Dye Your Hair Extensions


I NOW HAVE AN UPDATED VIDEO ON MY BLOG AND YOUTUBE SHOWING YOU HOW TO ACHIEVE THE DIP-DYE/OMBRE LOOK... TO CHECK THIS OUT CLICK ********HERE********



Hi Lovelies.
I have the Dip Dye Look on My Hair & the way I achieve this is by Dip Dyeing My Clip in Hair Extensions rather than My own Hair.

My Extensions are from SuperModel Hair & are in Colour P16/22.

So First of all I coloured My Own Hair the same colour that I'm going to use on the top part of My Extensions. I used Loreal Professionnel Dia Richesse in 6 & 6.13, This was from Sally's but If Your unsure about using those Hair Colours a Normal Box Dye will work as good.

Back To The Extensions...

So My Extensions are blonde & we're going to colour from the clip to part way down the hair.

If Your hair extensions are blonde & You want to apply a darker colour onto them I advise putting a golden tone colour onto them rather than a flat colour as You dont want them to look Khaki, Thats why I'm using a 6.13 which is a Dark ash golden Blonde.

So Mix up Your Hair colour (6 & 6.13) in a bowl with a colouring brush & lay down some foil long enough for the hair to sit on.




Then take some colour on your brush and paint it downwards leaving out the ends.
And repeat on all the other pieces of hair.




Check how long Your colour needs to Process, Mine is only 20 Minutes but different hair colours do vary.

Rinse Your Extensions in Warm water, Shampoo & Apply a good Treatment to them.

Rinse again, Towel Dry & Leave to Dry Naturally.
I did apply some Argan Oil to My Wet Extensions & used a hairdryer to dry them for quickness but if Your not in a rush the less heat the better.

Once dry put in Your Clip in Extensions & Style as Desired.




I Curled My Hair with Straighteners :)

I Love the Dip Dye Look & I think it will look fab again this season for Spring/Summer.

Hope this Post helps anyone that wants to Dip Dye their Hair Extensions, If You have any Questions Please ask.

What do You think of the Dip Dye Look?

Thanks for Reading.

Have a Fab Day.

March Favourites 2012 ♥

Hi Lovelies, April has soon come along & That can only mean one thing; It's time for My Favourites from March 2012.

Xen Tan: Deep Bronze Luxe




I was Sent a Sample of this product & also did a Review of it on My Blog.
During the Spring/Summer Months I love having a tan and have tried out lots of Tan's & Gradual Tan's before, But this Product was the best one I've ever tried.
It gives You a Gorgeous olive-golden Tone natural Tan, Took Me 5-10 Minutes to apply & I had a Streak Free Tan when I woke up the next Morning.
Also it smells devine!!!

Christian Eyebrow Kit




I also did a Review of this Product on My Blog.
Before using this product I had never used an actual Eyebrow product on My Eyebrows, Apart from a Brown Eyeshadow to fill in My Brows.
This is My Favourite, I use it everyday on My Eyebrows & the colour is so natural, It comes with 3 different Eyebrow shape stencils but I don't use them as I'm happy with My own Eyebrow Shape.
It also lasts all day which is great.

Barry M Hologram Hexograms




My Boyfriend brought Me this as one of My Birthday Prezzies, It adds some fun to Your nails and looks perfect ontop of any other nail colour.
Plus You can't complain for a Bargain £2.99!!

Clinique Even Better Foundation




I had a Sample of this Product from Clinique and this is now one of My Favourite Foundations.
It gives a great coverage & Perfect finish to Your skin, Doesn't look cakey on Your skin and also has Long Wear.
I'm going to Purchase this product soon as the Foundation I'm currently using runs out.

Find My Clinique Foundation Review HERE

The Final Product Isn't Beauty Related...

Angry Birds




I also had this for My Birthday as I Love Angry Birds.
It's so fun & You can get all the family envolved as it's a Good old Board Game rather than an App!

So That's My March Favourites.
Not alot to really shout about this Month... Maybe More this Month :)

Thanks For Reading Lovelies.

NOTD Using Barry M Hologram Hexograms

Hi Lovelies, One of My little goodies I received for My Birthday was Barry M's Hologram Hexogram's in No 244.

Today I thought I'd Try it out on top of a Dark Blue Nail Varnish.

For This Look I Used:



Barry M Hologram Hexograms 244 & Revlon Midnight Affair 094

First of all I used a Base Coat to Prep My Nails then applied 2 coats of Revlon Midnight Affair to My Nails.

Once fully dry I then Applied 3 coats of Barry M Hologram Hexograms to My Nails, Leaving to dry between coats.

The Finished Look.



Without flash!



With flash!

Excuse My Cuticles in The photo's they are a mess & My Nails have gone really brittle & keep breaking lately.

I Love this Look & The Dark Base really sets the Barry M Hologram Hexograms Off.

Hope You Like this look.

Any Questions or Comments Please Feel Free to Leave, I will always Reply.

Please Please Remember to go to the Collection 2000 Facebook Page & Look for the Easter Nails Photo's & 'Like' & Share My Photo :) Tell Your Friends Too :)

My Weekend in Pictures... Happy Birthday to Me ♥

Hi Lovelies, So Saturday was My 24th Birthday & I thought I'd share with You a few Photo's of The best bits from My Amazing Day.

I had lots of Prezzies & Money to spend in Liverpool this Weekend, but the best Prezzie & Funniest off My Boyfriend was the Angry Birds Game.




I love Angry Birds, I completed them all on My IPhone & soon as I saw this on TV I was like 'omg I want' so My Boyfriend surprised Me with it.

Of the Night, My Boyfriend took Myself, My Little Girl & His 3 Kids to Frankie & Bennys for Food, Oh Boyyy it was soooo yummy.








Pudding was the best...

My Boyfriend had Knickerbocker Glory & I had Pancakes with Chocolate Sauce & Ice Cream! *NOM*







I had such a Fabulous Day, And I cannot Thank My Boyfriend & Little Fam enough for such a Perfect Day. :)


Me & My Boyfriend ♥

Thankyou to Everyone on My Twitter too for My Birthday wishes.

Lots of Love
