Review & Nail of the day: Orly Mani Mini Trio


Today I am going to be reviewing the Orly Mani Mini Nail trio.
I picked up this set from TK Maxx today for just £4, which is available in larger Boots stores for £13!

In this set there is a grey, mint green and baby pink colour, so far I have used the grey and really like it, as it went on smooth and was opaque in 2 coats!

Having not tried Orly before I really like this set as it gives you a good idea about the nail polishes.
Overall I would have to say I really like this set, and would suggest to have a look in your local TK Maxx.

Have you tried any Orly colours?

Review:NIVEA Express Hydration Primer


Today I am going to be reviewing the Nivea Express Hydration Primer, which launched towards the end of 2012, and I picked it up around October time, and Love it and have used it everyday!

I really like the packaging which is a glass jar (not ideal for traveling), and doesn't have any SPF in which means it is good for photographs- however it is important to have SPF somewhere else in your routine!
As well this works well over moisturizer as some primers don't!

The consistency is similar to a lotion and adsorbs into the skin very quickly and I think that it really does help you make-up last longer and go on a lot easier!Also you need very little and I think that this jar will last me about 4 months in total.

This Primer is available from Boots, Superdrug and supermarkets and costs £4.99- which I think it is a bargain.

Have you tried this primer?

Nail of the day: Nails Inc Porchester Square


If I had to say my favorite Nail Polish brand of 2012 I would have to say nails inc.  Despite them being quite expensive at £11 a bottle I find they are one brand that regularly do good deals, for example offering them free with magazines, or discounted in boots or online.  So during the sales I decided to treat myself to a set from Asos. Nails Inc set (Link)

One of the main reasons I bought the set was for the Nude that comes in it- as my Nails inc nude that was a few years old had gone gloppy, and Porchester Square seemed perfect.

There is also a lovely bright green, baby pink, purple, hot pink and a glitter in the set so if you would like to see a nail of the day with any of them just let me know!

New year new start?


As you may have noticed the latter part of 2012 I fell of the Blogging bandwagon, I think one of the major reasons was due to starting University, which I am loving but had to get use to it - and all the work  that is involved.  So I am going to be starting to blog regularly again, so if you have any ideas or suggestions of post you would like to read- just let me know...
