NOTD: Models Own Polish for Tans

Just showing you my most recent nail design. 

I used my new models own polishes from my recent haul that I blogged about here:

I went a bit arty this time around and opted for a 'half and half' design, the shades I used are shades and beach bag and I think they compliment each other perfectly.

For a little extra bling I decided to coat them with models own Jack Frost polish which Is a gorgeous iridescent glitter!

NOTD & Sneaky Models Own Haul

So models own recently had their usual sale offering of 6 polishes for £20, so naturally I had to place an order!!

I'm a huge fan of the brand so I picked up these beauty's below! 
From left to right:
* Jack Frost 
* Beach Bag
* Sun Hat
* Shades
* Blue Glint
* White Light

The picture above really doesn't do any justice to just how gorgeous and bright these polishes are, Beach Bag, Sun Hat and Shades are part of the new 'Polish for Tans' Collection and are truly AMAZING AND SUPER BRIGHT!!

Of course when i got them i had to do my nails right away, i chose the colour shades which is an amazingly pigmented, streak free, almost neon pink, I'm in love!!

April 2014 Glossybox UK

So it's that time of month again, when my Glossybox lands at my door!
The 'theme' for this months box is 'sweet treats' as usual it's comes with the glossy magazine and card letting you know what's in your box!

The goodies I received in my box
* Tresemme dry shampoo 100ml
* Emite makeup lip brush
* He-Shi Face and Body tanning gel 50ml
* Monu Spa Warming Ginger Massage Oil 30ml
* Me Me Me Beat the Blues Pink Pearl Highlighter 12ml Full Size

Here's a up close shot of the lip brush.

and here's a super up close swatch of the MeMeMe highlighter

Overall I'm pretty happy with my box this month, its not overly exciting but i know i will definitely use 4 out of the 5 things i have here.

Price wise this box was a great month, here's a breakdown:

*Tresemme dry shampoo 100ml, Full Size 200ml Retails for £4.99, so this is a £2.50 sample.
*Emite Makeup Lip Brush, This is Full Size and retails for £17
*He-Shi Face and Body Tanning Gel 50ml, This is a Travel sized item and retails for £7.95
*Monu Spa Warming Ginger Massage and Body Oil 30ml, Full size is 100ml and retails for £25, so this is roughly a £7-£8 sample (i know my maths is not perfect, its just a rough estimate, lol)
*MeMeMe Beat the Blues Highlighter 12ml which is full size and retails for £5.50

So in total the value of my box is worth £39.95.
Not bad considering this is only £13.25 a month

Let me know your thoughts on this months box.

Boot Sale Bargains

So if any of you are frequent boot sale bargainers (buyers) then you will be aware that Boot sale season is back in full swing!!
I myself am a huge boot sale fan, and just love to grab a bargain!! 
I went to one on Sunday with the family and picked up a few bits, nothing too exciting but thought I would share with you anyway!!

The first things I got are nail polishes, (not that I need anymore, I have enough to sink a battle ship!!) but the colours were lovely and I got all four of them for £1, yep that's right £1!!!!

From left to right:
LA Colours - hottie
Calvin Klein - opus
W7 - no name (foil silver shade)
Missguided - misstique

I think my fave may be the LA Colours as it's so bright and summery!!

The next and final item I picked up was this gorgeous baby keepsake box.

I have sets already for my other two boys but was in search of a final one for my youngest. 

It comes with 3 separate boxes inside, one for baby's hospital tag, one for baby's first curl and one for baby's first tooth.
It's absolutely perfect and just what I wanted. I paid £1.50 for this!! 

I will definitely be going to more boot sales and look forward to sharing more of my finds with you.

NOTD: Essie and models own

I did an order from models own a little while ago now and picked up this gorgeous glitter polish in the shade 'Northern Lights'

This is one of the best glitters I own, hands down!!

It's a super fine, pink holographic glitter, and applies like a dream! It's amazing over many shades, but I chose to wear it over the top of Essie's play date.

I can not explain the amount of sparkly holographic-ness that comes from this polish, nor could I capture it on camera, you have to own this polish to truly see it in all it's amazing-ness!! 

They retail for £5 each, what's not to love?! 

Models own currently have an offer on there website right now, 6 polishes for £20 including there new 'Polish for tans collection'
