Nailed It- Peach Melba surprise ;)

Just a quick post of my nails of the week :) The colours I chose were mentioned in my previous haul post.

I wore two colours, both by Barry M- Peach Melba and Black. What do you think?

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Peach Melba and LOVE the combination. I was just playing around with colours and taa-daa....I found it!!!

Oh and I also just do the same colour on all my nails, then use a glitter polish like Barry M Hologram on just one finger.

Hope you guys like it... And what are your favourite colour combinations?

Have a good week! :)

That is exactly what I AM becoming! 

The two most important things a girl needs after food and water are clothes and nail polish.
And I made sure that that is what I did! We always need necessities ;)

For clothes, I bought one of those smart blazers and two  simple tops all from H&M. I am really impressed with their Autumn/Fall clothing range, it is soo affordable, current and there are some beaut. pieces! 

Dorothy Perkins have a nice shoe collection and so I bought some flats for everyday. I got a black pair (which I did have to wear into and it HURT :( ) and a pointy tan-ish pair, which are really comfortable! :) They were like £16 each I think?! BARGAIN!!!

And I got a bit nail polish crazy!!! And really excited! LOL!
I had a few No7 vouchers (kindly given to me by my sister!) and thought that 'I can't let them go to waste' (LOL, any excuse to buy nail polish!) So, I purchased colours from their recent colour collection. Trust me I do not need ANY more nail polishes....I have soo many to use up, it is kind of becoming a joke... But sooo WHAT!!! :)

(L-R) Tangy, Jammy, Pinky Pure, Cheeky Chops, Peach Melba, Black, Hologram.

When I bought Pinky Pure 160 by No7 I thought, this won't suit me...but I am pleasantly surprised.. I think it looks okay. I feel a bit Barbie-ish but Barbie is cool, right?! :S This is what it looked like on (excuse the messy nail application!) I was soo excited to get this colour on!

FYI: No7 have changed the formula and brush for their nail polishes (for better!-thank God!) I was actually really impressed with the colour, application and how opaque it was. Well, there was one exception... Pinky Pure 160. It is a nice colour ( I love it!) but it was a nightmare to get on... It was streaky, quite watery and I had to put 2 thickish coats. It might just be my bottle... But do let me know if you had the same problem...

I also managed to get my hands on Barry M's Nail Paint in Hologram (No. 244). I was looking for this basically everywhere for months and I found it in my local Boots! *YAY*!!! I will be using this EVERYDAY!!! I really love it. But I did find it hard to get all the glitter specks on my nail evenly. Practice makes perfect! ;)

Ohhhhhhhh anddddd I almost FORGOT...I can't wait to watch Kim Kardashian's Wedding on E! tonight....waiting to watch this for ages!  ;) (yep, you got it right! I'm a reality TV/Kardashian whore!) Its on at 9pm!

Hope you are having a good weekend!

MAC Viva Glam Cyndi

I realised I don't wear lipsticks enough, maybe I am not that brave yet... I am happy to just wear Carmex or a lipgloss..... So, when my girlie Hena got this for me, I thought 'hey this is my time to get out of my comfort zone and wear lipstick.' A year on, I am still waiting for that moment! But I just feel a bit more Hercules now ;)

I know I am a bit  very behind and I know everyone knows what the lipstick looks like, but there was sooo much hype around the Viva Glam Gaga (which I love, but defo could not wear, I probs would look like a clown!) I thought I would give this baby a try...

Viva Glam Cyndi!

Just a quick heads up...my lips looks weird! I am not pouting... Feel a bit katie Price-ish! (Not good! FAIL!) :(
One Coat

Two Coats

Two coats with a little bit of carmex ontop

 The lipstick is perfect for someone like me who wants to wear a red lip but don't think you can pull it off. This lipstick is very versatile, one slick and it doesn't even look like you are wearing lipstick and the more comfortable you get, the more lipstick you can wear. In the day when I wear it I just do one slick and chuck some lip balm/gloss over it, but for night time, I go a little heavier.

And THE most important thing... The lipstick smells soooooo good! :) Lol! Its a shame I can't blog the smell! :(

So, I am thinking of getting a few coral/pale pinky colour lippies.I am going to get experimental ;)

What is your take on lipstick? Lover or hater?

Have a good week everyone! :)
