S/S 2013 goodies from NYC, Rimmel & Sally Hansen

Last night I got to check out some of the new S/S Favourites from NYC, Rimmel & Sally Hansen courtesy of the lovely Fiona from CODY PR & Paddy from Makeup Pro Store. They introduced us to some new products and reintroduced some old faves and Paddy, who is one of Belfast's most well known make up artists, gave a short lecture on the new trends in makeup (such as blending different shades of foundation for contouring instead of using powders to keep your make up looking dewy)
I had a great time and have madly fallen for both Apocalips & Appelcious. You can see below I'm wearing Appelicious in Big Apple Red in my FOTD/NOTD. I'm also wearing NYC Big Bold Curl Mascara and Quick Drying Nail Polish in High Line Green (those of you who watch the voice may have noticed Jessie J wearing a similar green for the live auditions. Or is that just my obsession that made me zone in on them?)
Not bad if I do say so myself. Especially when you can spend less than a tenner for the lot!

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…
