Rose Gold Striped Nail Art

Hi everyone! Today I have some beautiful girly nail art to share with you. This time I did a rose gold striped nail design using 2 coats of Essie - Penny Talk and China Glaze - White on White for the lines. I really love metallics, especially this colour but it does not last very well (and you can see if your nails are peeling/uneven), but alas I did it anyway because it's totally worth it! I hope you like this design.

I used 2 coats of China Glaze - White on White as my base then used all Kester Black colours for the rest, sealing it off with 1 coat of Glisten & Glow HK Topcoat. I hope you like these as much as I loved doing them!

MAC Velvetease Lip Pencil - Lover's Lane

Hi everyone! I hope you are all well. Today I thought I'd share with you all this gorgeous Velvetease Lip Pencil by MAC in the shade called Lover's Lane; a bright medium-dark orange with red undertones. I've been wanting to find a NARS lip crayon alternative and I think i've found one! This pencil has a super creamy formula that applies like a dream and dries to a slightly matte finish. I wore this for 4 hours and it lasted really well and hardly any lipstick transferred at all! Velvetease Lip Pencils retail for £17.50 and are available online here. I can't wait to try more shades!

H&M - Precious

Hi guys! Today I have a gorgeous new colour to show you by H&M called Precious; a stunning yellow gold foil polish. It's a bit deceiving as the bottle shows opalescent pink and blue to it but doesn't translate to the nail the same way. The colour is still beautiful regardless. H&M nail polishes retail for £3.99. Pictured is 2 coats with 1 coat of G&G fast drying topcoat. The formula was really smooth and easy to apply with a really nice, wide brush covering the whole nail in one swipe! I'm looking forward to trying some more colours from their collection. Have you tried any good colours? Let me know which colours you recommend!

Estee Lauder - Clear Difference Purifying Exfoliating Mask

Hi guys! Hope you are well and are having a great week so far! Today I want to share with you a mask by Estee Lauder in the Clear Difference range called the Purifying Exfoliating Mask (RRP £36.00 for 75ml, available online here). The Clear Difference range focuses on clearing the skin of blemishes which always peaks my interest. Although I don't have blemished skin at all, if rarely, I always like to try products that target that concern as a preventative measure. The Purifying Exfoliating Mask was bought on a whim. I wanted to try some skincare from Estee Lauder and seem to gravitate towards masks so when deciding which one to go for, I went on the website, narrowed it down to my skin concerns, and then read reviews and they have all been really great for this particular product. After one use of this product I saw a difference. It drew out any impurities I had, removed excess oil and shine, and exfoliated gently to reveal super soft supple skin. Since using it once a fortnight i've noticed less breakouts (especially around my period) and it always gives my skin a healthy clean glow. It contains Salicylic Acid to deeply draw impurities out and stop the breakout cycle, free skin of flakiness, control oil and refine the look of pores. I use a 50p amount all over my face after cleansing. Once completely dried (5-10 minutes) I wash it off with warm water and gently exfoliate it off. This part is what makes the biggest difference! It definitely isn't drying either which is a bonus! I highly recommend this product, it's very cost effective too, only needing a small amount. A pot will last you about 6 months. Let me know if you try/have tried this. I'd love to know if others are having similar results!
