Buy-Ciate-Mini-Mani-Manor-Advent-Calendar-Style-Nail-Polish-Gift-Set-John-Lewis-3.jpg

Let’s talk advent calendars. I used to have a phobia of them because I always  got the extremely cheap and nasty chocolate ones from the Poundshop and almost never bothered eating the chocolate. Anyway, this year I have a few advent calendars on my wall. I am hoping this will become a nice family tradition!  […]

If someone told you you could go to Primark and do all your shopping AND get a number of beauty treatments, what would you think?  I know what I thought (CHAOS!) but what actually happened was the complete opposite.  You see, Love Beauty Brow & Nail Studio has opened in selected Primark stores in the […]

Kiss Gel Dress Peel Off Removal Nails Review

Kiss-Gel-Dress-Peel-Off-Removal-Nails-Review.jpg

Sensationail-Shellac-Gellish-Nail-Alternative-LED-lamp-Crystal-G.jpg

So the story goes like this… I lost a Sensational lamp, then I broke one.  I decided after that that God perhaps, if he exists, doesn’t want my to have a Sensationail machine or gel nails.  But here’s the thing. I do like painted nails but I; a. Seldom have time to apply it b. […]

So I was in Boots the other day, and there’s this thing called ‘The-Vortex-of-Boots’ which is where you go in for some toothpaste and end up leaving with a massive basket full of crap that you’ve decided is vital ‘Because it’s from Boots’, and spending £100 on nothing discernible – well I was in the […]

I have a few beauty store cards – I guess Boots is one, and Space NK and Debenhams (although I probably buy most of my cosmetics on eBay or from stores like Beauty Bay).  I got an email from Debenhams saying I had £15 credit on my card for spending…well god knows how much! Nevertheless, […]

Kure Bazaar Chic Spring/Summer Aqua and Coral Nail Polish Collection

Gamme-Corail-Coquette-Gypsy-BikiniCo-Lychee-Kure-Bazaar.jpg

So I’ve never considered myself to have ‘sensitive’ nails – they grow very quickly so it doesn’t bother me that they will eventually break and flake at 1cm past my actual finger.  I have always found nail polishes very drying and not long after removing one I will always have to have a major snip […]
