Rose nails. :)

I decided to make the most of the remaining nice long nails. 

I tried out a rose pattern, painted free hand. I used Log onto love by OPI, black acrylic nail paint, alpine snow by OPI and tree hugger from China Glaze.

Hope you like it! :)


Oh dear...I am ending my review on the  imPRESS nails incredibly early.

The claim on the box...up to 10 days wear? Yeah...if you lay down for these said days, being hand fed and bed bathed.

Day one : 4 come off. Very disappointing. Incredibly unimpressed.

I think that these are fantastic for 1 night, such as a special occasion. But for general day to day use? A total waste of money.

Shame...they looked so pretty.

imPRESS nails review

 Oki doki...I am finally going to try out the imPRESS nails, in the colour 060 Stiletto. I received these in the August Glossybox.

My first impressions of them are positive. They are good quality, easy to use, feel healthier on my natural nails compared to the ones you apply with glue, such as the Boots own stick on nails. They feel firmly stuck on, with no fuss or mess.

I personally do not like the colour. It's simply not me. They would look fabulous on some of my friends, but I am more of  a pastel and purple type of girl.

I'm happy with their appearance. Although, like most stick on nails, they do look false. I'm interested in how long they will last. The box states they'll last up to week. I will do a quick update blog to let you know how long they actually stay on.

There she Grows...

I am the unlucky owner of frizz prone hair. Each strand of hair expands in different directions by the mere threat of moisture. No matter how much I moisturise with conditioners and frizz ease products, the second a single water droplet hits it, my whole head of hair tries to escape from their home.

SO I decided to try a more professional hair mask. I bought Osmo deep treatment mask from Sally's Beauty supply, and smothered my head with its contents for a good 15 minutes. I was desperate!

Well...I have to say that I wasted my money! I have bought high street brand conditioners that work better. Even in my house, my hair frizzed. Barely any humidity at all. I will use the tub up eventually...but will be investing in argon or macadamia oil hair products next...continuing my desperate search for a product that will tame my fly away locks.

Half an hour after blow drying!

Jewelled pedicure on broken daughter!

Good morning everyone. daughter broke her ankle at the beginning of the summer holidays. Trampolines are no longer a friend of mine (Very inconvenient!) So we are finding the silver lining...and have settled on the best one. Her toes are constantly on show for 6 weeks! Which mean unprecedented access to painting them!

This time she opted for a jewelled pedicure. We used craft jewels, which unfortunately are not as shiny as we would have liked. But it is still a lovely look for her broken self!

Review of Pro White Original

I am pleasantly surprised at how much I like this product!!

There is a definite difference once this varnish is applied. My nails look pearly white and so healthy. Again, my pictures do it no justice. 

For anyone who has even the slightest discoloration to their nails, this will transform them into beautiful nails.

Please excuse the nasty dry cuticle horrors in these pictures!!
