Easy French Manicure...

Hey guys...

I am blogging from my bed tonight

it's so cosy and much warmer than my lounge haha.


I may have 'accidently' slipped into Superdrug again

and 'accidently' purchased a considerable amount

Oh dear

It's a good thing I've just been paid.


Anyway

I was thinking about other nail effects I could show you guys

and I thought about how much I struggled to get the hang of 

a french manicured finish at college

Then I purchased this today



and thought it might make doing it a bit easier

FYI - I don't practice looks before I do it, so sorry if it turns out a bit naff.

The thing with French finish .. you don't need longish nails

because it gives you that effect even if you bite your nails

you silly person. Hehe.


1. You've got to start of with clean unpolished nails

Mines aren't usually this long..


 Remember it's ok if you don't have any nail
as you can fill it in yourself


This is the natural nail colour I'm using



BarryM 125 in Pale Purple
which is a really nice colour on it's own. 


2. Using the BarryM Nail Pen in White, draw around your natural nail tip and a bit more if you like, but still making sure it looks natural.

 A little something like this
and my computer in the background on my comfy duvet

It's really easy to draw on.
You don't have to faff around with tape 
or making huge scruff marks on your skin.


3. Now using the natural Pale Purple colour paint two layers over the white polish.
Your white tips will show through and then can be used like a stencil.

 
First Coat















Second Coat









 See how it's like a stencil under the natural colour!

4. You must wait for the natural colour to dry
Then draw away
it is actually like using a felt tip 
so easy!

 
See how it covers up the pinkyness 

and the finished product...


One French Polish without the faff 
without the £30 salon fee

In the comfort of your own home.

Show me your try outs!
I'd love to see it.

Jack Wills Dandelion Review

Hey guys!

As some of you may know, at the weekend 
I went to Gunwharf

My local Outlet Shopping Centre




Had a clearance area, I picked up a pair of shorts for summer 

But to get the 50% off the shorts I had to buy something else

It could be anything I wanted

I had my eye on this Polish



Cause it's not your usual Pink or Blue or Purple

It's called Dandelion

And is a Yellowish Brownish colour





 Pro's

It drys quickly
It's a bit Bohemian
It was only £3.00


Con's 

It's a bit watery 
And the colour reminds me of babypoop
Sorry!


Hope you had a lovely Half Term

Superdrug for a few bits and pieces.

They have a 3 for 2 deal at the moment

we all know it would be a bit rude if I didn't get some things!! 
 Cheeky!


The funny thing is, I was checking out the stuff to purchase,

I picked up 5 cosmetics (before realising the offer)

      Daniel sighed with relief once we got to the counter 

and the woman asked me if I want a 6th product for free!

Ehh Yes please!!
