Nails: 17 Crackle

Hi this is a new product from 17 available from Boots in the UK and it costs £3.99.
It is a silver colour without glitter.  I like this product as you can create different crackle styles by swiping the brush different ways.  Over all like this product Same price as the Barry M crackles, but Barry M does not make silver.
In this picture I have the crackle on top of the Barry M Pink Flamingo

Review: e.l.f Daily Brush Cleaner

This is my review of the e.l.f Daily Brush Cleaner, which is available from, for £3.50.  This cleaner is designed to help spot clean your brushes.  I really like this product as I think that it really makes a difference in making your brushes cleaner and it is useful that it is in a spray bottle.  It does have a slight scent but nothing too overpowering.  overall I like this product and would purchase it again.

Review: Simple Eye make up remover cream

Today I tried the Simple Kind to eyes nourishing Eye make-up remover cream.  And I think it is amazing, really easy to use and takes of an eye full of make up with one cotton pad.  Also it does not irritate the eyes, and I really like the consistency of the cream as it means it doesn't go in your eyes.  Overall great product and I recommend it.  I purchased mine from Morrisons for £1.

Review: Sleek Ink Pot, gel eye liner

This is my first Sleek product. I am very impressed with this product, goes on smooth and it last quite well on me despite my oily lids and hooded eyes.  Sleek products are available from Superdrug in the UK.
It also comes with a small brush which is very useful and make the liner easy to apply.   You are easily able to create thick and thin lines, and with the small brush you are able to winged liner easily.
overall I really like this product and look forward to trying more products in the future.

*UPDATE- over a year later this eye liner is still as good and lasts all day! very much recommend it as I thought it would have dried out by now!*

Nail of the day/ Review of: Models Own and W7

Hi this is my review of the Models own nail varnish in Fuzzy Peach, and the W7 crackle nail varnish in earthquake white.
Models own nail varnish review:
This is my first Models own nail varnish, and i have been very impressed, they retail for £5 in Boots in the UK.  This nail varnish impressed me because of the lack of chipping, so I will definitely be trying this brand again.  The colour I is Fuzzy peach.

W7 Crackle nail varnish:
This is also my first W7 nail polish, and i got it to compare it to the Barry M nail effects nail paints.  The W7 is very impressive, and a similar effect and I paid £1.99 for mine in savers in the UK which is half the price of the Barry M Crackle varnishes.  I also have the silver crackle in the W7 brand which i really like as Barry M do not have their version in silver. This is the Amazon link to the product which is more than I paid but it does have free delivery.

Overall, i like both of these products and will be trying both brands again.
