So this amazing kit will turn any, yes any nail polish into a gel. Not everyone wants to spend a small fortune on a gel kit and then have to buy a gazillion gel polishes too! This allows you to create the gel nail look with your own polishes you love and can last up to 10 days too 🙂
I painted my nails as normal, waiting about half an hour for them to dry then proceeded to use the gel top coat. This was easy to apply and you only have to put it under the lamp for 60 seconds, then use one of the wipes included and you are done! A beautiful manicure in no time.
What I love about this is how easy it is to use and also how much longer your manicure will last with this top coat on. I have used it twice now and both times my nails haven’t chipped or anything within a week (usually I chip them within a day!)
The kit will be available to buy from the United Beauty website www.unitedbeauty.co.uk and selected Debenhams stores from mid September.
I wanted to share with you my thoughts on two products I have recently stumbled across, The first being a blusher and the second is a lipstick. Both can be purchased from www.beautycrowd.com
The blusher is by a brand called Nicka K and is in shade Petal. What I liked most about this is that it is a great colour and gives just a slight hint on your cheeks. I often see peeople who look like a clown applied their blusher! This one is great as it is subtle and the shade is very flattering. It is very decently priced at £6.95 and I love how it has a built in mirror for on the go applications!
Next up is this lipstick by Milani in shade 26 nude creme. Priced at £5 this is another affordable product. It is the kind of shade that I imagine would suit everyone. It adds just a hint of colour and is easy to apply, leaving your lips feeling soft and moisturised.
I also really like the gold packaging as it looks very up market and sophisticated.
So I decided to change my hair AGAIN. After having it purple for my wedding I really wanted to go for the blue/mermaid look. I hadn’t tried this hair dye before so wanted to see how long it lasted (I was getting fed up of having to re dye my hair every week to keep it vibrant!)
I used the turquoise all over, mixed in with the “mixer” so it wasn’t too bright and then went on to add purple to the roots to create a deep blue ocean like colour.
The end result :
I am so happy with this. One of my favourite hair colour combinations to date! I have washed my hair 3/4 times since dying it like this and it has hardly faded (yay!).
Time to decide what to do next with my hair… They have a great range of colours 🙂
I have a few more fragrances I want to share with you that I picked up samples of on a recent trip to House of Fraser
Terryfic Oud – This is a very popular fragrance in store and is made from Oud. Oud comes from black insides of tree and has a very unique scent. I honestly cant describe it and I am undecided if I like it!
Narciso – this whole range is based upon a musk scent. I really liked this one and personally I think men and women could both get away with wearing this. It has a very fresh scent.
Versace eros – this smells very fruity and flowery but you can also really smell the musk and sandalwood. This is definitely a summer scent.
Prada candy – To me, this smells like a mixture of caramel vodka and a sweet shop, no wonder it is called candy! This immediately has become my favourite!
Prada Iris – This is very fresh and light and reminds me of the smell of clean sheets straight out the wash. It is a familiar smell and very summery.
I love trying make up brands I have never heard of before and MeMeMe is one of them..
I have tried three products and have been impressed by all of them : Arch angel, Lip glide and Light me up.
The arch angel is in shade light brown. One end is used on your actual brow and the other end is used as a highlighter underneath. The colour was a good match and looks very natural. The highlighter helps to lift the brows and make the shape of them more defined.
The lip glide is in shade english rose. It is a beautiful shade of pink and adds a very subtle colour to the lips. It is in an almost crayon form and I find it a lot easier to apply than a regular lipstick. It is described as a velvet finish and it has very good staying power. I really like the colour and also how it feels when applying. It is moisturising even though it is a matte finish.
The Light me up lip gloss is in shade Lustre. It has a subtle glitter sheen to it. My favourite thing about this lip gloss is that it isnt too sticky! Nothing worse than putting on lipgloss and ending up with it all over the place and in your hair. The tube has a handy mirror attached(massive thumbs up for this) AND the tube lights up when you open it!
I would recommend this brand and I think I may be investing in some more of their product soon 🙂 Use code SARAHME3 for 20% (limited time only!)
