China Glaze : Stone Cold


Hi guys ! Thursday already ! Hoping the rest of the week goes by this quickly too. Luckily I got a sneak peak at some of my little man's photo shoot pics last night, so that made my day super special . He wasn't in the mood for the photos at all last week, so was worried there won't be some cute ones, but luckily the preview ones were adorable! Can't wait to see the rest .


Today I have another China Glaze polish to show you guys, this one is from the Hunger Games collection - Stone Cold. Well, honestly, I'm a bit clueless about the whole Hunger Games movie , but I love the collection they bought out . Here's the whole collection :



I got the Stone Cold this week, it's a Matte Grey polish, and I just LOVE this one. (I love some others in the collection just as much ♥ )


1 Coat of China Glaze Stone Cold ♥

This was another one coat miracle. It goes on smoothly and dries so quickly . (This colour is the second last pic in the top row. ) The polish also has some light silver glitter in too. But what impressed me the most with this colour, was the the drying time... When I was done putting on one coat , the first hand was dry already.

May GlamBox ♥


Hi guys ! It's Wednesday already, time certainly doesn't stand still.. Luckily weekend is getting closer too, yeah !

Today I will show you the May GlamBox . This is the first GlamBox I have received, and I have to say I was impressed with the goodies it had.





This month the box contained the following :
  • Acqua di Gioia Armani Perfume Sample
  • Crabbtree and Evelyn Citron Honey and Coriander Hand Remedy and Body Scrub
  • Revlon Photoready 3D Mascara - Full Size
  • Avon Effortless Chic Necklace and Earring Set
  • Lip Ice Seductions - Alluring Pearl ( Full size )
I loved the goodies. The only thing I wasn't crazy about was the perfume sample, the scent was not me. But it was still fun to try it on to get an opinion.

I loved the Crabtree and Evelyn Citron Honey and Coriander Hand Remedy. Used it last night with my Essence moisturising hand gloves, and my hands felt so silky soft this morning. And the Lip Ice seductions lip gloss. I ♥ lip gloss, and this was quite moisturising . And had a light vanilla scent.

Overall, since the full since products are WAY more than the R100 you pay for the GlamBox, this was worth it.

I'm not sure if I will get the June box, still deciding, but this one was worth it to try it out.

Tip Top : Astronaut


Hi guys ! Hope everyone had a nice relaxing weekend . Mine was , just feeling a cold coming on, which is not cool at all.  

Today I'm showing you another stunning colour from Tip Top . Its a metallic blue - Astronaut .



The most impressive feature about this colour - Its a one coater. Who doesn't ♥ a one coater . The only trouble I really had was to photograph this colour, as the weather was playing hide and seek with the sun, so was hard to get some decent photos.

 I just love the this blue. Its definitely a statement nail polish , and i goes on so smoothly without any issues to get it opaque.

Remember, you can get Tip Top polishes from any Clicks store for R39,95 ♥

I know some people do struggle to find Astronaut, but perhaps I was just lucky, as this is one of the easy ones to get .

Hi guys. Hope everyone had a relaxing weekend !

Today I'm showing you a polish from Tip Top : In the Navy. This is one of their In the Navy range of polishes . This one in particular is a dark blue navy polish.

Tip Top : Cha Cha Cha



Hi guys . So glad it's weekend !!

Today I have another polish from Tip Top to show you guys called Cha Cha Cha. I have no idea why what attracted me to this polish in Clicks in the first place, as this wouldn't usaully be a colour I would get, but this polish just looked like such a unique colour.

This polish was super easy to work with, almost a one coater, but needed two as there was still bald spots on some nails.

Normally I don't like green nail polishes at all , but this green-ish polish really stood out for me. I've worn this colour a few times before this too, and every time I get tons of compliments when I wear it.

Hope everyone will be having a relaxing weekend !!

Tip Top : Twilight


Hi guys. Hope all the moms had an awesome mothers day today. :) I sure did .

Today I have another stunning colour from Tip Top to show you guys, Twilight, a nice creamy light blue. I used this stunning colour for my mothers day mani.

My brush was a little wonky, but eventually got it smoothed out. I used three coats of Twilight to get perfect . I also used the Protective Base for Blue shades - this has a peppermint essence and helps nails grow by improving blood circulation.



3 Coats Tip  Top Twilight


Tip Top Twilight and Tip Top Blue Protective Base .
I love using this blue protective base under all the blue nail polishes. It does give your nails a light blue-ish tint if you wear it on its own, but its a fantastic base coat . I think Twilight might even be my new favourite blue polish .

Tip Top polishes are really excellent quality ♥

You can find Tip Top polishes at Clicks stores country wide, both these retail for R39,95 .

China Glaze : Material Girl


Hi guys ! Today I'm showing you a nice pink girly colour from China Glaze - Material Girl . I decided on this colour since I had a baby shower today for a very special friend who is expecting a little girl  ( I'll be posting a pic of the diaper cake I made her too !! )


3 Coats Material Girl
 Firstly, the photos doesn't do the sparkles justice, its really more glittery in real life. This took 3 coats of polish to get it right, but I have to admit this glitter eats top coat like crazy. Took 4 layers of top coat to get it smooth !



3 Coats of material Girl
 I really struggled to get a decent photo of the colour , as my camera and this particular colour didn't work together. Really , its much more glittery in real life.

The downside on this, this colour was super thick and hard to work with. The glitter is really dense, but its still a very nice colour.



Attached some photos of the diaper cake I made... So proud of my first attempt !




But back to the polish, honestly I was really disappointed. Sure its a stunning colour, but I prefer to have a polish on that doesn't chip so easily. I really love the pink colour.. Its really stunning, perhaps, next time I use it, somehow it will work better.
