Essie Smooth Sailing

I haven't painted my nails for absolutely ages!!! I was nursing a few breaks with patches for a little while, but in the end I gave up and just cut them all short!

I've been waiting to get a little bit of length back on them before I painted them again, but got bored of looking at  plain nails!

In my desperate attempt to cling onto summer - despite being currently in a jumper and shivering because it's so cold, I chose a colour I had been eyeing up for a little while before buying it.  Essie Smooth Sailing is from their summer 2011 Braziliant collection.

Barry M - Raspberry

This is just a quick post to show off a colour I popped on the other day to cheer myself up! I really wanted a nice raspberry colour, as it was a lovely sunny day - rare in England I know!

Boots No 7 - Calm Skin - Redness Relief Gel/Balm

Until recently I'd never really looked at Boots No 7 skincare, as to be honest I tend to stick with what I know works for my skin (mainly Clarins, although recently Liz Earle).  I have combination skin, that can be very sensitive.  I find that if there is any excuse for my skin to go red then it will, leaving me walking around looking rosy/flushed the majority of the time!

To be honest I can't remember what lead me to this product, all I remember is finding it on the Boots website, and reading almost all of the reviews on it.  That sums me up quite well - I like researching things before I buy them, to make sure I'm not wasting my money!

Boots No. 7 Calm Skin Redness Relief Balm

Boots No 7 Calm Skin Redness Relief Gel (mine says Balm) gets glowing reviews on the website, so I decided that I would pop into store and get one for myself!

Barry M - Mint Green

Being a natural red-head, I find that green is a colour that really compliments my hair colour and skin colouring.  As a child, I had a favourite green dress, I loved it, and I remember being so sad when I grew out of it!  Now whenever I see anything in the same green I have to buy it!

This was a manicure from during the hectic house move period!  I used Barry M in 304 Mint Green which is pretty damn close to my favourite green!

MaxFactor Lipfinity Lasting Lip Tint - 05 Marshmallow

I'm slowly working on trying out new lip colours and finding what works for me!  I really liked the idea of a lip stain, as it sounded easy, and hassle free - perfect for me!

MaxFactor Lasting Lip Tint - 05 Marshmallow
MaxFactor Lasting Lip Tint is a stain for lips that comes in 6 different colours.  I picked up two of them in a 3 for 2 offer, number 04 and number 05.  MaxFactor Lasting Lip Tint in 05 Marshmallow, is a pale pink colour with a purple undertone.

China Glaze - Cowgirl Up

Well I think I have some catching up to do on my posting!  I took a bit of time off to move house, and celebrate my birthday, and work a few more hours! Hopefully things are a little calmer now!

China Glaze - Cowgirl Up

This is a manicure I wore a couple of weeks ago.  It's one I managed to get quite cheap on Ebay (love it or hate it!), and is from the China Glaze Autumn/Fall 2008 collection - so quite an old one!
