Get your gloss on



This is the 2nd of the joint posts we were talking about and its a good'un!

As many of you will know there is a rumbling in the beauty world in the form of Glossybox. I've been waiting months for mine and today the wait was over. Let me tell you I was not disappointed! I got home after a long day at work to find it perched seductively on my coffee table, I squealed and jumped around the living room and kitchen until I realised I hadn't even opened it yet!


The first thing I spotted was this bright green nail enamel from Ciate. I'm already a massive fan of these nail enamels and I'm not put off at all from the Green-ness of this one, I'll happily wear it and use it for nail art of some description in the near future.

The next thing I spotted was the unmissable Weleda box containing Pomegranate regenerating body oil. I love body oils and am currently using one from Nuxe (which is lovely and can be used on face, body and hair) so i'll definitely have a lot of use for this too.

Next Illamasqua. SWOON!! I began screaming again when I caught glimpse of this! I got Powered metal in Ether. A pale gold highlighting/sheen creating wonder product. I know a lot of other people got different Illamasqua products so will be interesting to see everyone elses!

Next was a perfume sample from Orla Keily, smells alright not really my thing but will do after I have been out for a cigarette.

Lastly Ultra Sun face SPF. I'm always on the look out for more sun protection as my fair celtic skin burns better than toast.

I'll be using the box for storage as well, love me some boxes! What did you all get in your Glossyboxes? Send me pictures I want to see!! M x

Bex's Box (Not picture Weleda Pomegranate Oil)  
I was so excited when I saw everyone raving about their Glossybox goodies last night! And so jealous as I was at my dads house and had missed the delivery of mine!! So this morning, ignoring the fact that I'm leaving for a festival tonight and am not even packed, I rushed straight home and straight to the post office to collect my prize! I couldn't even wait till I got home, I opened it right there in the car!
I instantly saw that barring the Pomegranate Oil which everyone has been raving about, my box was slightly different to Michelle's, which is great because now there's more variety for you guys! I got a Red Ciate Nail paint pot with a cute gold shimmer! Some Nouveau lashes which is great because I'm scared of lashes so now I have no excuse not to try them out! My Illamasque product was the Sheer Lipgloss in Explode that you see swatched above & then finally I got the Xen-Tan in Dark. I've seen lots of reviews about Xen-Tan and would really like to try it but fear that this shade might be WAY to dark for me. I'll give it a swatch to see but I fear this one may get donated my more bronzed housemates. They're quite excited about that prospect!

I'm so happy with my first Glossybox & really can't wait till next months! Is it August yet? Can it be August now please?

My Homage To The Gods Of WAH

Hello boys & girls! And welcome new followers. Michelle & I are very excited to share our thoughts with you.
Ok, cheesy bit over with, it's been a while since I've done a proper NOTD post, I was very conscious that I was being too nail heavy so have avoided writing about my recent weird/disastrous creations. But I have to mention my current talons because I've had so much feedback on them from friends & colleagues.  First up, these are not my design, those in the know will recognise them from WAH NAILS.
[edit] I forgot to mention that I saw a post from Little Red Fox where she did a much closer take on the design which inspired me to have a go! Maybe this could be the start of a Nail Meme? [/edit] My interpretation is loose as I didn't have the colours to just straight copy them. Secondly, this was my first ever attempt at leopard print nails so its a bit dodgy I apologise. My favourite nail is my left thumb as you see below (apologies for the dodgy photography…

Something a bit lacey.

I've FINALLY got round to trying out these Nail Rock wraps. I've had them for months but it's just one of those things I've been putting off for ages.
They are really pretty and amazingly easy to put on, with the help of a hairdryer and a bobby pin!
The only downside of these are I can see them peeling a little at some of the edges already, but I type all day in work so it's understandable. Though a mani for me can usualy tough it through a week under the same circumstances.
Pretty, no? x

obsession? or Collection?

Just before Christmas my best friend Gayle was expressing her shopping woes when it came to my present. Know my love for Barry M she wanted to get me some but was scared as she didn't know what I already had! So she asked me to blog my collection for future reference. 
CRINGE!!!
Dare I reveal the entirety of my obsession? Because, lets face it, I can pretty it up by saying I'm collecting but I'm plain ole obsessed and everyone knows it! So here goes...






So there it is, a close up of my ever expanding "collection". Or at least the ones I have with me in Belfast. I have more in storage & sneaky order from Cult Nails (treatments rather than new colours as much as it pained me not to indulge) on the way.
I think I need help. Any NPAA* groups in belfast?

*Nail Polish Addicts Anonymous.
**No this not a real OPI, for starters the real That's Berry Darling is pink! Its was cheap off eBay & was the only polish on there that was the exact shade of Yellow that I…
