Barry M Nail effects

Don't worry, I know my nails totes clash with my bag but that's just the kinda girl I am x

Meaning to blog about this for a while now so here goes – Barry M Nail Effects nail varnish is totally the best thing ever.
Being someone who has quite a low-key beauty routine (I’m hopeless at false nails, hair extensions – the whole shabang), I completely fell in love with Barry M’s easy to use Nail Effects. Simply apply a base coat, wait to dry obvs, and then put one coat of Nail Effects over the top. At first you think “what the frig have I done?” as it just looks like a big black blob on your previously perfectly manicured talons but a few moments later the nail varnish separates and creates a cracked effect. Perfect for leopard print or graffitti inspired manicures, I went for a red base to try out a Ladybird look and loved it! Next time I reck I am going to apply a bronze colour so I can have leopard print claws.
My advice is to apply a clear coat over the top as mine chipped quite quickly.

Ode to GA lashes…

So I take my usual trip to Boots to pick up my weekend essential – false eyelashes. And I don’t get just any old lashes that are hanging about – I always have to get the Girls Aloud lashes, the Sarah Harding ones…no it is not because we share a name, it is simply because hers are the best. Okay, I can cope with Nadine’s if Sarah’s are sold out but really Harding’s are my no1 choice (Cheryl’s make me look like a camel, Kimberley’s are boring and Nicole’s are far too whispy).
Anywho, as I bought my eyelashes it dawned on me how much of an essential these eyelashes are, I don’t know a single girl who does not count GA lashes as one of her handbag staples. But as Girls Aloud have been ‘on a break’ for a while now…what the frig are we all going to do if they ever break up? Does that mean Eylure will stop making these fantastic eyelashes? Surely not! If they ever break up I guarantee Superdrug will be a postapocalyptic war zone with girls fighting to the death. Just to grab the last remaining pairs just so they can stock up. This day will come soon….make sure you’re ready.

In mascara we trust

In a world plagued with adverts that boast full volume lashes but have footnotes such as “styled with lash inserts” and “modified in post production”, it is hard to find a mascara that you can trust or one that will actually work – without falseys or CGI, that is.

Therefore it is refreshing to find a mascara that is both a bargain and gets the job done.

Introducing Primark’s 9 1/2 Winks Extreme False Lash Mascara (yes, Primark do make-up). This beauty gem is only £2.00 and creates volume and length without any clumpy build-up.

For such a low price I am definitely stocking up.
