NOTD: Neon Pink Polka Dot

Hi Lovelies, Today I'm going to show you my NOTD which is bright pink nails with a white & pink polka dot ring finger.




Products Used:



Jessica 704 Lava Lamp, Models Own WAH Nail Pens in White & Pink.

How To:

This was really easy to do, First I applied 2 coats of Jessica Lava Lamp to my nails apart from my ring finger, Then I applied 2 coats of Models Own white WAH Nail colour to my ring finger but used an old nail varnish brush to apply this.
Once all the nails are fully dry I then used my Models Own pink WAH Nail Pen to dot on some polka dots.
Once completely dry finish off with any desired top coat.



This Jessica nail varnish is my favourite for summer as it's so bright & looks gorgeous with a tan.

What do you think of this nail look? Are their any other nail looks you'd like to see?

Thanks for Reading

Dirty Works Bling It On! Shimmer Lotion

Hi Lovelies, Sorry I've been a little quiet the last few days but I've had an awful cold & really haven't been up for doing anything... But feeling a little better now so I'm back!!

If you read my blog you'll know I LOVE Dirty Works Products; All the product ranges smell devine & the main thing is the great quality that doesn't break the bank.




Today I received the Bling it on shimmer lotion, It's a lightweight moisturising lotion with very tiny little bits of gold glitter in that gives your skin a radiant glow.
Now I mentioned the word glitter but don't worry it just gives you a very slight natural shimmer not like you've jumped in pva glue then rolled yourself in glitter *phew*!

I used this on my arms today (as it's the only body parts I've got out in this weather) & it moisturised my skin & gave it a healthy looking glow, Also it smells gorgeous too which with any body moisturiser I think is a must as there's nothing better than having gorgeous smelling skin.

This product is great for everyday use just to give your body a gorgeous glow on the parts that you want to show off, Or to use on holiday or with a tan to enchance & show off your tan even more!

This Product retails for £4.99 from Leading Sainsburys stores or from the Dirty Works Website.

Try & check out the rest of the Dirty Works products too as they have so many amazing products & they get a 10/10 from me!

Here's a link to some of my Dirty Works Blog Posts.

Have you tried any Dirty Works products? If so whats your favourite?

Thanks for Reading

Have a Fab Weekend.

Fake Bake Luxurious Golden Bronze Mousse Review.

Morning Lovelies,
I'm a HUGE lover of fake tan, as having tanned skin perfects your skin & gives you that extra little bit of confidence.

I've tried out lots of fake tans but Fake Bake has been one that I've heard mixed reviews about & couldn't wait to try it out for myself.




About:

Fake Bake Luxurious Golden Bronze Mousse is an instant self-tan that dries in seconds.
It's a super light foam mousse that creates an incredible depth of colour suitable for the face & body.




My Review:

In the box you get 120ml of the Mousse Tan in a gold can; You also get a pair of gloves too saves you getting orange palms!

I Prep'd my skin prior to tanning then popped on my gloves placed the foam in my hand & away we go...
...The application of the tan was super easy, It glided on really well, Blended better than any mousse tan I've known, Had a slight colour so you know if you've missed any spots and within seconds My body was completely dry.

I applied the tan about 10pm Saturday night and let it work miracles while I slept-in until about 9am Sunday Morning.

I noticed while I was sleeping this tan did have that biscuit smell, which isn't a bad thing as 95% of Fake Tans out there smell like this!!

Soon as I woke up I didn't see any difference apart from on my face which was really tanned, So I hoped that when I washed the colour guide off I would see more of a tan, but no I still looked the same colour as before apart from with a very slight glow!

On a scale of 0 being my natural skin colour & 10 being a really dark caribbean looking tan, My tan was probably a 1. My St. Tropez Gradual Tan gives me more of a darker colour than this did and for half of the price!

Also I noticed my face had started to break out too, even though in the leaflet they do recommend using the face tan but on the box it says it's suitable for the face & body, And I'm not prone to break-outs so thought it would work ok on my skin.

This product retails at £22.01 from hairtrade.com, Maybe if your looking for a light tan this is the one for you, but for me I don't like to be really dark but I do like to have a tan so that people say 'oh have you been on Holiday?'.

I really don't like giving bad reviews but if a product doesn't work for me I'm not going to lie about it.

Let Me know if you've tried this product & If you recommend a different Fake Bake product that gives a deeper tan as I did love how it went onto the skin just not the results.

Thankyou for Reading

NOTD: Models Own Emerald City

Hi Lovelies, This post is really delayed as I applied this nail varnish to my nails on Thursday but I've been ever so busy I haven't had time to blog about it!





The nail varnish is Models Own Emerald City that I got in a 3 mini trio which also has blue & red glitter nail varnishes too.

To get this finished look on my nails I applied 3 coats to my nails.



This nail varnish lasted for days & didn't chip or peel, I also had lots of comments on my nails as the colour is so bright and different.

What is your favourite models own nail varnish?

Hope you like this look, I think this colour is gorgeous & it's not something I would usually wear!

Thanks for Reading.

Fabulous Treats for Your Feet!

Hi Lovelies, In the UK right now we should be enjoying the sunshine & be letting our feet see a little daylight for a change; But Summer is never our friend over here & we've got to put up with glorious rain showers instead!

Don't let these rainy days stop you from paying your feet a little attention with these fab footsie treats from Dirty Works.


Smoothing Foot File, Toenail Scissors & Printed Emery Boards

Smoothing Foot File.
This foot file has a rough side for getting rid of hard working rough skin & a smoother side for buffing up & giving a smoother finish.
Once I used this on my feet I then rinsed my feet and applied My favourite dirty works Coconut Body Butter.
My feet not only looked great but smelt delicious too!
This products retails at £5.99 which is about average for a foot file.

Toenail Scissors.
All I can say is O M G where have these scissors been all my life!
When I'm normally cutting my toenails with ordinary scissors I'm struggling with one leg in the air, twisting my leg, getting in awkward positions but these long handled scissors make toenail cutting alot easier!
They are also designed for use on harder toenails too so they cut through those stubborn toenails with ease!
These retail at £5.99 and I love the cute design on them too.

Printed Emery Boards.
These emery boards work great on toes because they are a little bit more Coarser than your average emery board.
They also work great on nails too.
These retail at only £2.49 & you get 3 emery boards with 3 different funky designs.

Also You can get Toenail Clippers in the range too that retail at £2.49 but I'm no good at using nail clippers for some reason so I didn't try these out!

All of these products are available From leading Sainsbury's or from the Dirty Works Website.

Make your feet sparkle this summer!

Thanks for Reading.
