Festive Gift Ideas with Emjoi Micro Nail (Review included)

It's almost that time of year again and unless you're the most prepared person in the world you're probably just about thinking about presents for your friends & loved ones. Well I have a treat for you. 



The Emjoi Micro-Nail Electric Nail Polisher  promises a 2 week manicure in just a few seconds and it's really not far off the mark! 


The set up is simple. You get 4 rollers, a buffer and a shiner (2 of each) and you easily pop them on and off for use. Then after prepping your nails thoroughly you switch it on, glide the rollers across the nail and you're done. Sounds simple but in practice it takes a bit of getting used to. I tested it with my mum and we both found it took a few attempts to get used to the speed of the rollers without it shooting across the nail. But once we got the hang of it we found it as quick as advertised. 
Now, you should never use an abrasive on your nail for more than a few seconds (or else you risk damaging the layers of the nail) so I'd recommend practice with the smooth roller to get your technique sorted as you can use that as much as you like. 


Here's the before and below you can see a few snaps of my mum using the buffer.



We found anchoring the finger with our thumbs gave more control when using the roller. 



And the results are plain to see. The nails are lovely and shiny! 

This is exactly the kind of item I'd love to find as a wee stocking filler. Is it going to replace my 4-way buffer permanently? Probably not. It's gadgety, fun and effective so It's definitely a winner in my book!

Available at Gordon's Chemists and currently on offer at £29.95.

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

IMATS London 2013 Haul featuring Nars, Crown Brush UK, OCC & more!

Hello Lovelies!! And how are we this fine day? I'll be honest with you I'm completely shattered but it's all been worth it as I had an amazing time at IMATS this weekend. I'll be posting some photos of the show itself shortly (I need to wait first of all to see which photos are chosen for the Irish News article Bexberry is writing - Sounds quite fancy doesn't it!) but before then I thought I'd show you the important stuff... My Haul!! As you may have seen from my Instagram I went a little brush crazy with a total of 10 brushes! First up and top of my shopping list was the Louise Young  foundation brush, Bex had picked it up last year and has raved about it ever since. And since learning that stipple brushes actually aggravate dry skin and cause it to flake (!!!) I was on the hunt for a new brush and this was it. Have to say 3 days in & I'm loving it. Already I notice a difference in the longevity of my foundation just from this one brush! Nex

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
