Ready, Get Set, George?




Did you know George at Asda had a makeup range? I didn't.

I rarely pay to makeup displays in supermarkets because they usually stock the same old brands who I rarely wear and could probably cheaper elsewhere. I got the absolute shock of my life when I saw, abandoned on a shelf in the veg aisle, a bottle of George at Asda foundation. I was even more shocked when I saw the size of the range! There are at least 4 different foundations, all of the powder, contour/highlight, Nail, lip and eye products you can think of. They've even gone down the Makeup Revolution road and stuck in some unashamed dupes/copies. I bought one that you see swatched below. 


Their highlight & define is a an obvious rip off of Benefit High Beam and it does contain a really nice shimmer which lasts well. I also bought the Get Set mineral setting powder and The Tamer 2 in 1 lash and brow definer, both of which saw me through an all day wedding with minimal need for touch ups. Cant be bad to that for the £2 or £3 price tag! 


Another thing that caught my eye, although they didn't have my shades, was their version of the Bourgois fruit infused Healthy Mix which they call Super Boost. Given that I'm currently retrying Healthy Mix I might, if I like it, give the supermarket version a go!

So what do you think?
If you've tried the range already and have any suggestions please let me know your thoughts!

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?

**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…
