Review NYC Uptown Nail Polish



As promised I tried one of my new nail polishes this morning and the results are great. This nail polish is really easy to work with, you could get away with just one coat. I have 2 coats on in the picture as I wanted a more vibrant colour. The colour is also slightly shimmery with hasn't really showed up it the pictures. This colour reminds me of a Nails Inc polish (which I can't find a name on the bottle, sorry )
I would definately say give the NYC range of nail polishes a go as the range of colours is fab and the drying time is fairly quick.

I will try to get some swatches of the other colours up before I go on holiday on Saturday.

NYC Nail polish Haul

After seeing the NYC Colour in a minute nail polish on other blogs I thought I'd give them a go. As I stood in Superdrug I could not decide which colours I liked best so I bought 6!!
The colours I got were:




* Uptown 242B
* Downtown 244B
* Central Park 216B
* Times Square 224B
* Prince Street 247B1
* Wall Street 234B

These nail polishes are a must have! They come in a great range of colours and are very affordable at £2.49.

Review of each polish and swatches to follow :)

Cloud Nine Straighteners

I recently purchased a pair of Cloud Nine straighteners which are made by the same people who first produced GHD's. They claim to straighten your hair at lower temperatures and have a special ingredient in the plates to make your hair shiny. I will continue to use the straighteners for a few more weeks and then will write a review on them. I will not be able to compare them to GHD's as I do not have a pair but will certainly give you all the pros and cons in my opinion, so you can compare the two.

Maybelline Define-a-Lash Mascara



Hi, I have tried a lot of different brands of mascara as it is one of my favourite make up products but have to admit I do like my eyelashes to look fake and this mascara is GREAT. I have had so many people asking which false eyelashes I am wearing! Maybelline Define-A-Lash mascara is easy to use- no hitting the wand of your eyelid etc when trying to reach those small lashes. It is a good formula which is smooth, clump free and reaches every lash. I really cannot fault this mascara, I have been using mine for a few months now and the formula is as good as the day I got it, it hasn't dried out as has happened with other brands.


( sorry about the slightly blurry image, I don't think this picture really does it justice)

beauty blogs

Well i have finally made myself a blog for all things beauty, I hope to keep this blog updated with everything from reviews to NOTD. I love reading beauty and nail blogs and have found them to be really helpful if I want to know how good something is, or just finding out about new brands/products. I will also do hauls as I love to shop(who doesn't!!).

I hope I can be of some help to other people!!
