Nails Of The Day 10/06/12!

Hello Everyone:) 

I hope you are enjoying my more regular posts!
I am back for yet another NOTD.
As I said in a previous post, I have been obsessed with painting my nails.
So after just having plain Red nails, I have decided to go back to designs.
So I did a two-toned effect, with a teal and pink.

and these are the polishes I used..

L-R O.P.I. RapiDry Top Coat, O.P.I.'s Teal The Cows Come Home, BYS Nail Polish (shade unknown)

I first took the BYS Polish and applied this to half of my nail, the different half on every nail.

Then took O.P.I's Teal The Cows Come Home and but this on the other halves of the nails, 
then applied another coat of each..

Then I used O.P.I.'s RapiDry Top Coat, which I also used as a base coat to prevent the polish from staining my nails.

Thanks for reading this post and follow my blog for more NOTD posts!

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat Dupe!

Hello everyone:)

Yes, I have found a dupe for the YSL Touche Eclat!
and my dupe is £25.01 cheaper!
It is the 17 Hide and Chic Eye Brightening Concealer, which looks like this..
The packaging isn't very appealing.. And it definatley does not look anything like the Touche Eclat!
However.. I can a sure you that the product works in a very similar way.
I do not own the Touche Eclat, so I cannot compare them..

This is the applicator..
Sorry for the picture not being clear, was taken by a BlackBerry..
But it is a twist up applicator and the product comes out the top.. 
and it applies like this onto the skin

(excuse the other swatches)
it applies sheer, but it gives a small amount of coverage, 
and instantly brightens the eye and hides dark circles!

this is what it looks like blended in, you may not be able to tell, 
but it gives a very small tinge of luminosity!

So for £25.01 cheaper, its definatley worth a try!

You can purchase the 17 Product here: 
 (and 17 have a current offer where if you buy 2 or more products, you get a free gift!)

So thank-you for reading this post & please follow my blog for more reviews and dupes!

Nail Of The Day 07/06/12!

I am super obsessed with painting my nails lately.
I've had glitter tips, newpaper nails, and my pink glitterly nails, (which i did a post on earlier in the week).
But I thought to myself that I should do a plain coloured nail.
So I looked through my nail polishes and decided to go a classic Red nail!
ps. they look a bit bad, because I find red a hard colour to paint with!

I'm going out in a few minutes so I will put another coat on etc later!

So the star of the show is; 

BarryM Nail Paint in 262 Bright Red.

So speaking of nail polish..
I have won a giveaway from Aimee, from aouibitof;
Essie's Fiji!
I cannot wait til it comes in the post!:D
Thanks Aimee if you see this!

So yeah, that is my nails of the day, I am off out now, so I shall speak in the next blogpost!

Nail Of The Day 05/06/12!

So it's currently 02:22am the time i started writing this post, but i am SO bored and i should go to bed, and i know i neglect my blog and i keep saying that i will post more, but i try to, but stupid exams and revision are getting in the way -.-

but anyway, lets get on to the post..

Nail Of The Day 05/06/12!
So these are what my nails look like :)

These are the products that i used to create the look;

 L to R; Ciate Paint Pot in Jelly Bean, O.P.I. RapiDry Top Coat (mini) and Barry M Nail Paint in 149 Silver Glitter (limited edition)

So the first polish is Ciate's Paint Pot in Jelly Bean, and you can currently get this nail polish FREE inside the July 2012 issue of Marie Claire Magazine. (RRP £9.00)
 I painted 2 coats of this for maximum coverage and colour, over my nails.
And by this picture, you can see the purple/blue undertones it has, wow!

Then i applied a even coat of the Barry M Nail Paint in Silver Glitter 149 over each nail.
This shade was Limited Edition, but 17 do a glitter top coat, so you could use that too :)

Lastly, to make sure the colour lasts as long as possible, without chipping, i used the O.P.I. RapiDry Top Coat! I got this in a set, so it is a miniature, but i love it! Definatley the best Top Coat I have come across :) 

 And this was my result!


So yeah, if you would like to see more of these posts, then let me know!
I am off to bed now, i'm actually quite tired!
But thank you for reading and I shall speak in my next blog post, adios!
