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 no longevity here and they peeled away easily within a day or two even when I added extra layers for stability. I also tried using a dehydrator and primer from my kit but it didn't help the polish adhere to my nails. If you do you purchase this I would recommend investing in a dehydrator, the polish reacts quite badly to any oil on the nail bed so you need to thoroughly prime the nails before use to get more than an hour out of your manicure. 

I don't care though. No matter how hard I try I cannot hate this kit because it looks like a macaron and is completely adorable! I'll happily admit that this was an aesthetic purchase. Yes, I've wanted a single nail curing lamp for quick touch ups and personal use for a while so for that reason it suits my needs but so what. It looks like a fricken macaron! 
I'll just stick to using my trusty Gelish polishes with it instead whilst I investigate other single step brands. They are out there and one of them is bound to work!

DID I MENTION IT LOOKS LIKE A MACARON??

Matcha Madness: The Body Shop Matcha Tea Face Mask Review

My name is Bex and I am a mask addict! I love masks. Cream, clay, mud, peeling, sheet, cellulose, nourishing... you name it and I love it! I recently spent an evening with the amazing staff from The Body Shop Belfast learning about all their key products and celebrating their cruelty free status and at the end of the night I was very kindly gifted their Japanese Matcha Tea pollution clearing mask - I was delighted!  We all know that the world has gone Matcha crazy but beyond an occasional frappe from a well known coffee house my main experiences have been with Matcha flavour cakes from my local asian supermarket. They are seriously amazing and the lightest sponge I've ever eaten but it doesn't exactly scream "good for you". Thankfully, apart from being seriously tasty Matcha is ridiculously good for you. Traditionally brewed as a simple green tea it is packed full of antioxidants - 10 times the amount in normal green teas as you are consuming the precious groun

Image therapy from Therapie Belfast

  A few months ago I was offered a course of treatments of my choice from Therapie Clinic in Belfast.  I initially wanted to go for their laser hair removal but I was contraindicated out of this choice - I’m hoping that now I’m off medications this is something I can revisit - so I went with a course of prescriptive facials using Image Skincare.  Spoiler alert: I loved them.  The course was three treatments over three months -  slightly longer in my case thanks to my bonkers schedule   and their packed out books - and in that time I've noticed a vast improvement in the texture of my skin, a drop in pigmentation and redness, and a suppleness that I just haven’t received from other products or facials. In my  first Therapie post  I wrote about their Ormedic facial, an all natural service using botanical extracts; great for those who have never had a proper heavy duty facial before - like me - and those who don’t have huge problem areas but still need a bit of love.  It’s im

The one where I get to play as MUA!

Oh it's been a busy couple of weekends for little ole me but it's been a blast! I had the great opportunity of helping out my friend Narelle with her zombie movie! Now we all know I'm used to handling a camera or giving the orders in this kind of thing but this time I was set a different task: Makeup! Let me tell you it's been a long time since I've done anything zombie related (6 years in fact) so I jumped at the chance to muck in and try something different. The twist of the whole thing of course is that it's not just a zombie movie, it's a zombie movie for kids! Starring all of Narelle's students from her drama school.  So me and my 3 fellow MUAs (don't worry I'm not going to declare myself a professional just yet) got stuck in to our cast of 75 for each of the 3 days of production. That's about 60 kids and 15 adults by the way. Every day! Man I'm tired! But it was great craic and below you will see, my kit, some of my work on the adul
