L'Oreal Color Riche Collection Exclusive Eva's Nude

Phew! That's a bit of a mouthful for a lipstick isn't it?

But lookit! Isn't it pretty. I have to be honest I had been completely bypassed the release of the L'Oreal Color Riche Exclusive collection last year. I've been on a bit of a perpetual spending ban for the last year and had been avoiding every make up counter I could so as to prevent frivolous spending. Obviously it hasn't worked 100% but it does mean a few things have skipped my awareness. 


Eva's Nude (Inspired by/Designed for Eva Longoria) was recommended to me by Laura at www.editor-in-chic.com. I had put out a request on Twitter for some recommendations and this was right up my alley! Described by them as a "Barely Gold" I'd put it as a nice coral nude with a hint of gold, dare I say rose gold? Slightly dark and daunting in bullet form but light and airy on the lips. It's super moist as well so, although you'll most likely have to reapply after lunch, you'll forget you're even wearing it the rest of the day. As seen at the bottom I'm wearing it with an otherwise bare face (mascara doesn't count!) and it doesn't look stupid at all! 
Thanks to NARS I instantly associate matte black packaging with a Luxe feeling so this coupled with the gold trim and celebrity associations really tricks you into believing you've spent way more than you have. 



The Color Riche Collection is available at £6.99 from all the usual retailers however they're currently on a 2 for £14 offer at Boots so you may as well treat yourself properly! 
Or you could forgo the extra lippy and spend £40 on skincare like I did. But that's a story for another day!

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…
