World’s most expensive Manicure?

Love a bit of bling on your nails? Well, I doubt you can afford the Cherish Me Diamond Manicure. Made using a selection of 10 carat diamonds, the image above would set you back $51,000. OK, you an start breathing now. You can enjoy this service in the Dorchester Hotel, London and I’m guessing it DEFINITELY comes with some free bubbly. One for wives of Arab Sheikhs, eh?

Zoya Mod Mattes Nail Varnish are to die for


Zoya’s latest offering has a definite sixties vibe to it, crossed with a Barbie inspired colour palette. There are three shades- a hot pink, lime green and sea blue which all offer full longlasting coverage- with a MATTE finish. That’s right, a full on MATTE attack. You use a base coat, but no top coat for the best effect and I love the look of this range. Who says Matte has to be dark and for winter only? Not Zoya, that’s for sure!

$8 a varnish from Zoya Continue reading

I love the name of this product- I think it’s very playful and fun, and the fact that I love hot pink , well, it’s the best of all worlds. Wink is the new Barry M felt tip eyeliner pen and promises to give you feline flicks with ease. i’m a big fan of felt tip applicators as they’re easy to use and better for girls with less than steady hands.

Topshop Makeup WarPaint Nail Varnish NOTD

I’m consistently impressed with both the quality and price of ther Topshop makeup collection. They really have created an affordable line of products that deliver and their nail varnish shades are always striking- and on trend. This is product 001 in their nail varnish collection- entilted ‘Warpaint’. The image they show of it makes it look firebox red, but the reality (above) is actually more coral-red, with orange undertones and a high shine finish. You need two coats to get good coverage and it will chip VERY quickly, so you’re looking at 2 days of wear on average.

£5 from Topshop. Continue reading

BaByliss Big Hair Product Review

There’s a couple of thimgs I look for in a hair styling tool. My goal is thick shiny straight hair and anything that manages one out of those three requirements is pretty good. The Babyliss Big Hair purports to give you added volume- great for the seventies trend that’s sweeping the catwalk- but would it live up to expectations?
