Leopard print nails

So I had my first proper go at some nail art today! I've seen lots of people having the funky leopard print nails done by WAH and thought they looked awesome and wanted to try and recreate them. I'd seen some done by WAH in like a bluey/greeny colour with purple so wanted to try and do that one.



I used Chanel's Nouvelle Vague as my bluey/greeny base colour. I then used did dots using a pinky purple Barry M colour (it's a Boots limited edition colour, has no actual name). I then borrowed the new Model's Own nail pen from my flatmate to do the black outline, whacked on a nails inc top coat and this is the final results...





What do you think? Not too bad for a first time, I think I'll definitely have to keep practising but it was very fun! Can't wait to get paid so I can buy my own Model's Own nail art pens rather than borrow my flatmates!

Chanel Pulsion & Nars Pokerface

So I accidentally kinda spent all my money on nail varnish again... I really think perhaps I should invest in some kind of therapy for this addiction but for now, behold my gorgeous new purchases...


Pokerface by Nars


This is the gorgeous limited edition from Nars from their Holiday 2010 collection and it's a gorgeous Lilac colour with a slight shimmer. I'm totally digging this colour, it's a nice change of pace from the rest of the launches at the mo that are all very autumnal and muted. It's my first ever Nars nail varnish and I'm very impressed with it, great consistency and goes on really well. It costs £13 and I love it!


Pulsion by Chanel


Next up is the new Chanel nail colour from their Holiday 2010 collection called Pulsion. A very bright and gorgeous fuchsia pink colour that I love. For some reason on the Chanel website the colour looks very red but it's definitely not. I would say it's slightly darker than a previous release of theirs called Riviera. It's very bright and gorgeous and as always just a great nail varnish from Chanel. I'm such a fan... it's a real problem for my bank balance!

Ummm and on an unrelated note... how shocking was it that Aidan got kicked off the X Factor?! I'm in shock and very upset! He had the most gorgeous voice :(

Models Own - Nail Art Pen



Very exciting new launch from Models Own tomorrow! Launching on the 15th we'll be able to buy online the new Nail Art pen which they've created in collaboration with WAH nails. They're starting off with just two in Black and White but plan to launch in all the colours from their range. I'm quite excited about these, they look really easy to use and nail art is something I'd like to try and master. I think they only cost around £6 but don't quote me on that.

I can't wait till pay day so I can get some to try out!

PS. Don't forget to check out Wahanda's deal over HERE and sign up to get a free beauty voucher.

shoes!

So quick off topic blog post as I'm currently hiding in my bedroom waiting for my flatmate to hurry up and finish watching the x factor so I can then go watch it on catch up (I've been at the cinema)... anyway I digress... the point if this post is to say OOH look at my pretty shoes! I'm normally not a shoe kinda gal but when I saw these babies I had to have them. They're my bargain of the month as they were a steal at a tenner down from £50! They're from Office and I love them. Though I have no clue how I'm going to walk in them as they're 4 inch heels and I never wear heels... in fact I was nicknamed Bambi when I tried them on. Oh well... I can always just sit in them!

Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss

Shock, horror it's a post that's not about nail varnish! If everyone could try to remain calm...



So during my accidental shopping trip the other day, where I ended up coming home with a bottle of Chanel's Paradoxal, I also ended up buying one of the new Chanel Rouge Allure Extrait de Gloss.

I have to say I'm in love with this product.

Chanel describes it as "Bold colour combines with the smoothest, silkiest gel texture for luxurious wear and deeply dramatic effect." and I would have to agree! I went for the colour Insolence, which is a gorgeous pink colour. I'm pretty much always on the hunt for lip glosses of that kind of shade as it's my favourite. I've amassed quite a collection and this is definitely now in my top 3, along with MAC Cremesheen and Dior Addict Lip Polish.

The product stays on your lips and feels gorgeous, really soft and moisturising, whilst still being very pink. It looks moist rather than shiny if you know what I mean. It is by no means cheap at £22.50 but it is Chanel so what do you expect!

I'd definitely recommend this is you feel like splurging the cash. Now I really must stop wearing it every day otherwise it's going to run out!

notd - models own - peach puff

So today I've been wearing one of my new Models Own polishes, this gorgeous colour, called peach puff. It's the colour I was probably the least excited about but I'm loving it so much. It's just so gorgeous. They've definitely got a new fan in me!
