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!!!

Here we have my nail art Gems, stickers, fimo slices & various topcoats & nail care treatments.
The bottom shelve is currently holding my Models Own Nail Art pens, a buffer, my deoderant (good to know I wear it eh?) & my perfume (Black XS... Yummy!) but given that I'm having to double up on the upper shelves I doubt it will stay this empty for long!


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 wanted (candycorn yellow is surprisingly hard to find at halloween). It's actually quite a good polish if you ignore the fact that it's fake.

Le mini macaron gel manicure kit review

Can we talk about how long it's been since I've done a nail post? Too long. Far too long! Well wait no more because I have the cutest little product to show you! I picked Le mini macaron in Sephora. It was clearly over priced at around €30 but completely irresistible to my gel obsessed self (hey, it's sort of my job so I have an excuse) especially in my Sephora daze where I went into shove-everything-in-the-basket mode.  No regrets.  The kit comes in 4 colours, I chose peach because I love saying le péché in French and I LOVE the colour peach. It's the cutest little kit that comes with a usb cable, a little nail file and a cuticle pusher as well as some remover wipes and a European plug. The latter two remain completely unused.  In Sephora itself you can buy stand alone polishes in a huge assortment of colours but to be honest, I wouldn't buy these polishes again. Single step UV polishes (no base or top coat needed) sound great but there is

DIY fashion colour with BLEACH London

Im a bit naughty when it comes to my hair. I only get it cut roughly every 3 months and have a tendency to just let my colour fade until I can't take it anymore which, to be fair, is an improvement on my student days of cutting it myself twice a year and hoping for the best with harsh box dyes.  Praise the gods for the wonderful  Sharon  at  Paul Stafford Hairdressing  for converting me to the salon! What I love about her is her adventurousness with my colour and recently I've been rocking an amazing copper & pink combo but as with most all fashion colours it fades fast and hard and can be rather expensive to keep up.  But thanks to a combination of a £10 voucher with a Boots 3for2 offer on the new  BLEACH London  home hair care products what did I get? An awesome way to freshen up my colour without breaking the bank! So who are BLEACH? They're basically the new hip & trendy salon in London and are coming out with amazing on-trend looks such as pastel colours, dip d
