Nails...

So I've been trying to get my nails to grow really strong and healthy, because usually they just peel and crack and just don't grow long.  So at the moment I am doing a few things and I would just like to tell you all about it so it might help you too if you have the same problems!

SO.
First of all EVERY day I am  taking Biotin which is necessary for cell growth, the production of fatty acids, and the metabolism of fats and amino acids. Biotin is also helpful in maintaining a steady blood sugar level. Biotin is often recommended for strengthening hair and nails. Consequently, it is found in many cosmetic and health products for the hair and skin.

Then on top of that I wash and moisturize my hands like ALL the time, not OCD but still especially as its cold and flu season you need to keep your hands clean and moisturized to make them stronger for my hand moisturizer I use Nails inc London 'Bond Street Mexican lime foot cream' which in my opinion smells too nice to go on your feet! (smells like lime Skittles or Starburst)

I also soak my hands in warm olive oil or my Elemis 'Exotic Frangipani Monoi' moisture melt. Which smells DIVINE! and makes your hands feel amazing!

I always have a coat of nailpolish on even if its only clear I use eather my Jessica critical care for soft nails, Sally Hansen 'Diamond strength, Hard as nails, or Hard as wraps'.

My nail polish rouitine is as follows, I coat base- Orly Bonder, 2 coat nail color- (whatever i feel like), and 1 coat top coat- Seche Vite, OPI Nail envy matte, or Orly Glosser, Then OPI drip dry drops. Always leaving enough time for each layer to dry.

Drink pleanty of water at the moment I drink at least 1.5L a day, most of the time nearly 3L.

When doing jobs that require you to have your hands in water (such as washing up or cleaning) wear gloves to protect your hands.

Finally my grandma used to tell me to imagine you have diamonds on the ends of your fingers- which means treat your nails as if they are diamonds!!!!

Hope that helps some of you !

Youtube Makeup Guru Series - Tiffany [AKA MakeupByTiffanyD] Glowing Purple- MAC






My next few looks are going to be recreations or inspired from my favorite youtube gurus.

My look is different to Tiffany's (MakeupByTiffanyD) it is inspired by not a recreation. I am not saying that we look ANYTHING alike, we have completely different features, eyeshapes, complexions and skin colours!

THE IDEA!----
MY IDEA TO RECREATE / GET INSPIRATION FROM MY FAVORITE YOUTUBE GURU'S VIDEOS CAME TO ME WHEN I WATCHED ELLE'S (ALLTHATGLITTERS21) VIDEO ON HER AUTUMN LOOK, I HAD MOST OF THE COLORS SHE USED AND I THOUGHT I WOULD TRY IT. THEN I GOT THE IDEA OF SHOWING OTHER LOOKS I LIKED AND GURU'S I LOVE TO WATCH.
(i am also not saying that i am the first person to think of this so again no hater comment please)

Soft Everyday Makeup




I wear this look all the time and I always get compliments on it! It is super super easy and quick to do, and it looks like you spent AGES!!!!

James Molloy Mac seminar

Hey everyone!
So I went to the Mac James Molloy seminar at The TC and it was an amazing event! He showed 2 looks for us, one more dramatic than the other.
We also all got goodie bags with a mac binder pad, pencil and look cards, and wish lists.
After the event we went back to the mac counter and got to redeem the £25 tickets for makeup! I know it was so worth it! I also spent a little bit more =S (I feel a bit guilty because I feel like all I've been doing lately is buying things!) ,
I bought:

  • Reubenesque paint pot
  • Studio fix fluid NW15
  • Mineralize skin finish natural Medium
  • Eyebrow pencil Fling
Not as much as I wanted to spend, I restrained myself!

We also got a preview of the new collection that came out on the 3rd September, and I have to say I loved it!

All in all I would have to say it was an amazing evening. The only bad part was the traffic on the way there! The roads were ALL jam packed it took me 2hours to do a journey that usually takes me 20 - 30minutes!!!
