ghd aura™ Professional Hairdryer - Review and Nail Art

Hey everyone! Today I have something a little different for you, combining beauty and nails and mixing things up a little bit. Recently ghd got in contact with me and asked if I wanted to review their new aura™* hairdryer, and I of course said yes. Whilst my monthly favourites do include some beauty products, I am still primarily a nail blog, and I wasn't exactly sure how to combine the two. But I decided to push myself out of my nail art comfort zone and create something a little different. On my thumb and ring finger I recreated the ghd aura™* logo, on my middle finger I drew the hairdryer itself, and on my pointer and baby finger I drew the outline of luscious blow-dried hair. Colours will be after the jump, as will my full review of the hairdryer itself.

Geometric Floral Nails for Divine Caroline

Hey everyone! I realised earlier that I completely forgot to post these nails on to my blog, they went live a couple of weeks ago on Divine Caroline and I meant to include them in 'tutorial tuesday' but must have forgotten. Anyway, you get to see them now, and that's what matters, right? These were inspired entirely by Moustache Manis, and you can read all about them here, and also see the step-by-step instructions on how to create them.


What do you think? Let me know in the comments! 
Don't forget to check out the tutorial here

Barry M Summer 2014 Limited Edition Nail Polish for Superdrug

Hey everyone. Today I have my second post of the Barry M limited edition polishes, this time it's the two polishes created for Superdrug: Seaside* and Promenade*. These two are shimmers rather than cremes like the Boots polishes and as we all know I love cremes, but I can't actually make my mind up which I love most this time around, which must mean these shimmers are awesome!

Barry M Summer 2014 Limited Edition Nail Polish for Boots

Hey everyone! Today I have a long-overdue review of the Barry M Limited Edition polishes created for Boots. I know I promised this to you last week but I just haven't had the time to edit the pictures at all. I expected that once I finished my exams I'd have this up instantly but life has just got in the way a bit recently, and I really wish it hadn't because I'd love to be able to sit down and focus on my blog for hours and hours. Tomorrow I will have my review of the Barry M Superdrug Limited Editions, and I can't wait to have both posts up and finally feel at ease that I've done them! 

The Boots limited editions contain 2 polishes, Bikini* and Carousel* I'm not sure when they are available until, but you can still buy them from the Boots website here, where they're currently buy one (£3.99) get one half price, which is definitely a deal worth following!

World Cup Final Nail Art for Barry M + Tutorial

Hey everyone! Now that the World Cup is over I have one last football design to show you, and hopefully that will be it for a very very long time! We all know I'm not a huge fan of football, and World Cup mania has only exacerbated it, BUT it has been a chance to create some nail art that I wouldn't usually do, and that's never a bad thing. Today's tutorial is another in collaboration with Barry M, and it's my last one! I'm a bit sad because I've loved showing you all the designs I created, but I'm sure there will be more in the future. These are really simple to create, so hopefully you'll all be able to have a go at doing them!

I also wanted to announce the winners of my Yoo Moo giveaway, they are: Lynsey B, Kim N, and Kerry Locke. Unfortunately I had to disqualify a number of 'winners' because they weren't in the UK and did not read the terms and conditions. However, I will be having an international giveaway very shortly, so keep an eye out for that!

Tutorial Tuesday: World Cup Brazil Nails for Barry M

Hey everyone! I feel a bit cruel posting these nails after Brazil's defeat earlier but nevertheless I didn't want them to go to waste. This is another of the tutorials I created for Barry M recently and it's easy for all to recreate at home! You can always wear them for the final to rub it in a little bit more than the host country didn't get through, but you could always just wear them for the fun of it too. I'm not a big football fan, so it doesn't matter either way to me, but I do love the timing of these nails being posted!
