Quick Review: Barry M Nail Effects Gold Foil

 Design: The name kind of gives it away. This metalic polish available in both Silver & Gold is designed to mimic the look of nail foils.

Use: This is what I would call a One Coat Wonder. It goes on really well, dries fairly quickly, lasts ages! And if you don't paint it on too thin works best with one coat as for 2 some reason it become super fragile with 2 and refuses to dry properly. As with most metalics you do get brush strokes on it but they're not too visible.

Verdict: I'm on a quest at the moment to find the perfect non-glitter Gold polish. This is my new favourite. It's a true gold. It's not bronzey, its not orangey or too pale. It's a proper yellow gold and I've had nothing but good comments since wearing it for the last week!

Personalised False Nails
If you've been keeping up with my twitter you may have noticed the odd post annoucing that I was painting sets of false nails. This is part of my new venture to (eventually) professionally work in Nail Art. I'm going to be taking college courses not just in Nail Technology but specialising in Nail Art and will be offering my services up in the coming months. And for those of you not in the greater Belfast area or looking for something a bit quicker, I'll also be selling pre-painted designs much like the ones you see above through this site for a bargainous £5, so keep an eye out for that appearing and if you have designs or colour combos you want to request drop me a line! I would love as much feedback as possible on this to make sure it all goes well.

Ophrys Skincare

If you have been following my blogs and social media you will have seen that I am currently partnering with Therapie Clinics and trying out their range of specialist facials to try and improve my skin. Alongside the facials (my second of which is coming up in April!) I have really tried to up my game with my skin care. Rather than just slapping everything that says hydration on I am really trying to target specific areas and problems.
This has not been without it's troubles as my sensitive skin tries to adjust to this higher level of care. As a result of this - and a few other internal factors - I have been experiencing a few more breakouts than normal but I have been coping with them better. It's all about the give and take.

And when it comes to the 'give' I was very lucky to be approached by Ophrys Skincare to talk about their new range of low molecular hyaluronic skincare with their patented Mini-Hax particle. "Low Ma-what?" I hear you say? Well... Low Molec…

Budget Beauty Brushes: are they really worth it?

I know what you're thinking. A second bargain beauty post in a row? Maybe switch it up eh? Ummmm nope. I love my premium makeup items, I really do. But I love finding a bargain beauty buy just as much, if not more.

Today I'm talking brushes. There seems to be an incredible range of brushes out there at the minute. Whether it's high end, mid range, or budget, there is something for everyone and there is usually a dupe (or shall we just call them copies?)
Today I'm looking at budget brushes including one of those infamous copies.

Unbranded EBay Brushes 7 piece set for 5.69





An obvious replica of the Real Techniques Precious Metal brushes and at first glance the only difference is that these don't have RT stamped on the side. The design, the colours, the shapes are exactly the same! I've never used the real Real Techniques ones but I'd have to say if I spent £30 or more on these I'd be hugely disappointed. Having only spent a fiver I'm really chuffed. The…
