HELLO EVERYONE! It's been a long long time since my last post so apologies for that and thank you for sticking with me. I just wanted to say  there were good reasons that made me stop doing my blog/twitter and you-tube channel which I  may go into another time. But  i wanted to say that i will FINALLY be doing some new product reviews (a lot of Avon stuff as its the only make up I have bought for months) and new looks/tutorials  as well as some other bits and pieces on my blog and yes i will be uploading a new video on you-tube very soon just need 2 work out some technical stuff.
Well I really need 2 head 2 bed now so apologies for not being around 4 a year but many thanks 4 waiting patiently  till I came back. 
Hope u enjoy my new posts
Take care

Boots 17 Candy Collection Nail Polish Review

Boots 17 has just added The Candy Collection to their Lasting Fix range of Nail Polishes and i think these 3 colours (there are more) are perfect for the Spring. From left to right we have
Mint Choc Chip - the most gorgeous pastel green (with a touch of blue?) and my favourite of the 3
Fairy Cake - A really pretty girlie mid pink that isn't too pale but isn't too bright either  
Lemon Sherbet - This really does look like Lemon Sherbet! Yummy! But the colour does change slightly the more coats you use
Here's what they look like on (apologises for blurry photos).
Mint Choc Chip

Fairy Cake

Lemon Sherbet

So the colours are gorgeous but what about the actual nail polishes themselves? 

I needed to apply 2-3 thin coats of each colour,  as the first coat went on very unevenly - lots of streaks The second coat was usually enough to even out the coverage, but sometimes i needed a third.(you could try one thick coat but it takes ages to dry)   This leads me to the two bug bears i have with this product
1) The Brush: it's like a really cheap paintbrush that leaves streaks all over your wall. I find the bristles stick together and don't really spread out over the nails, and sometimes shed (only the odd bristle here and there, but most annoying) Overall, I really hate the brush
2) The size of the Product: You get 8mls for £2.99. Yes it's cheap, but it's not a lot of product and if you use 2-3 coats each time, you could go through these very quickly. But it's a great size  for travelling or if you never wear the same colour twice in a row
 Although i kept forgetting to put on a topcoat, the polish had a very slight shine to it, which i quite liked. 
It also does what it claims to do. It lasts for UP TO 5 days. I'm on day 5 and have 3 nails that haven't chipped at all, some have but only slightly (easily touched up) and only one that chipped badly. With a good topcoat it could last even longer. I should emphasise i applied thin coats and made sure each was dry before applying another one.

To sum up then, i think these are gorgeous colours which are perfect for the spring. Although the polish does go on unevenly, with 2-3 coats you get really good coverage, with a slight shine, that lasts for UP TO 5 days without chipping.and i would definitely recommend them.


I bought these products myself, and have not been paid to review them.

Face Of The Day - Daytime Smokey Eyes

This is the look i wore yesterday  when i went to get my hair coloured. I wanted a neutral look that would work with the red & darker brown i was having put it (which doesn't show in pictures but looks sooo nice in real life)
 I used the day smoke colpors from the Too Faced Smokey Eyes Palette,but didn't follow the instructions, just did my own thing. I absouletly looove this look and will be doing a tutorial for it - it's super quick and easy.  Hope you like it, it's one i'm going to be wearing a lot more often. The pictures were taken before i had my hair done.I took some pictures afterwards but the colours didn't show up:( so will try to take some more and post them tomorrow. 
Thanks to everyone following my blog i really appreciate your support :) 
Take care peeps
