Flower nail art tutorial

I was bored yesterday so I decided to do a bit of nail art because I haven't done any in a while. I turned out to really like them and it was really easy to do!

Clockwise from top left - jewel in the crown, Topshop - Pistachio ice-cream, MUA - Blood orange, BarryM - Papaya, BarryM
  1. First paint your nails any colour you like
  2. Using a dotting tool/cocktail stick/end of nail varnish brush to create two small red dots next to each other. Repeat this a couple of times on each nail.
  3. This step is the same as number 2 but this time use an orange nail varnish and put two dots around each of the red dots.
  4. Lastly using a dotting tool or cocktail stick make little green lines around the dots.

If you try this out show me on Instagram!

17 Wild Metallics Eyes Review

Hello everybody, as you might know from my recent beauty wish I wanted one of the Maybelline colour tattoos but every time I'm in boots or Superdrug I can never see a colour I want so when I saw this cream eye shadow from 17 I couldn't resist.
I got shade wild bronze and it was £3.99 so its definitely affordable. Its really easy to use and smooths out onto my eye lid really easily. However its quite sticky so it would smudge a bit when I opened my eyes when I first put it on and it took quite a while to dry.
I wore this on its own and loved how it looked but I think it would also look nice as a base. Its quite sparkly so if you don't like a bit of sparkle I wouldn't recommend this.
When I came to take of my makeup I was actually quite surprised that it was still on as sometime I find eye shadows can rub off.
I would definitely recommend this and I think I might be going back to boots soon to purchase another one.
Hope this has been helpful to you!
See you soon

Holiday haul

Hello everybody, as you probably know from my packing blogpost that I've been away on holiday! I went to Spain and today I'm just going to show you some things I got. I plan to do another holiday blog probably tomorrow but just showing some pictures I took because we went to some really beautiful places.

When we went to Girona we popped into Zara and I picked up this little perfume which comes in a little roller bottle. I got it in the rose scent and it smells gorgeous, its just a really summery scent. I've never seen this in a Zara in the UK but its definitely worth having a look to see, it was only 3.99 euros as well which is a huge bonus considering its Zara. I also bought a headband from Zara which is burgundy with a kind of gold chain weaved through it. I'm the type of person who likes having my hair out of my face so I thought this would be really nice in my hair. The last thing I got from Zara was this oversized floral t-shirt. I kind of fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. I just love the pattern on it and its so comfortable. I will definitely get my moneys worth from this.

We also went to Pull and bear in Girona and I got a pair on ankle length jeans. I discovered pull and bear last year when I was in Palma and I loved it so much so when I saw one I couldn't resist going in. There are 4 Pull and bears in the Uk but none near where I live so that's annoying because I love this shop so much. I think these jeans are great for summer, well UK's summers anyway, as they're a really light denim and I think them being ankle length makes them even more summery. They go with loads but I think they looks really nice with cami tops. I'm wearing my bright green one from Topshop.
When I was in h&m I got this lip balm and it smells so so good. I don't think they sell these in these in the UK but I might be wrong.  Its nice and hydrating on the lips but the only bad thing is that is huge for a lip balm so its not very good for just having in your bag or something, but that's the only bad thing I can say about it!


 When we were in a market I saw this bag and I couldn't not buy it. Its not something I would usually go for but I like it because its just so colourful and it stands out a lot, it would definitely brighten up and dull outfit. Its also a really good size as it can fit quite a lot in but its not to big.

The last thing I got was this nail varnish which is just the brightest green. I don't own a nail varnish like this and I have been loving this colour recently and for my holiday I bought a cami this colour (shown above in the picture on my jeans) I haven't worn it on my nails yet so I can't say if its any good or not and I have never heard of this brand before so hopefully its good!

So that's everything I got in Spain! Tomorrow if I have time I'll do another little holiday blog with just some pictures of where I went.
See you soon!

Colour show - Chalk dust

Hello everybody, about 3 weeks ago I got a couple of the Maybelline colour show nail varnishes. considering I've had them for that long I've only just tried one of them! So today I thought I would do a little review on it.
Maybelline - colour show - chalk dust - £2.99
I have never seen a nail varnish like this before so it drew me in straight away. When I used it I expected it to be a black nail varnish with white dots in it but it is actually a clear nail varnish with black and white dots in. Because of this I had to paint my nails black then put this on top, but it still looked really good.
 I wore this for a couple of days with a top coat on top and it didn't chip at all as I find quite a lot of nail varnishes chip really easily.
As this is a glitter nail varnish it is a pain in the neck to get off, However if you go to she has a video that tells you how to get glittler nail varnish off really easily and it works really easily.
So overall I would really recommend getting this as its really good, I'm surprised it isn't more expensive!
See you soon
