Revlon ColorStay : Wild Strawberry

Hi guys ! Hope everyone had a fun weekend !!! Mine was quite relaxing . ♥

Today I'm showing you another of the Revlon ColorStay colours. This colour is called Wild Strawberry. This is such a rich intense bright pink . Really such a awesome girly colour. The ColorStay polishes has a great formula, goes on very easy and smoothly. The polishes also generally last about 4-5 days before chips really pop up.

I used two coats of Revlon ColorStay Wild Strawberry in the photos below -


I even added a little fun accent nail -

 

For the fun animal print inspired nail art , I used Revlon ColorStay Passionate Pink for the animal print dots, and lined it with black nail polish . ♥

What do you think of this pink ??

Hope you have a happy Monday !

OPI - My Vampire is Buff meets Nails Inc Marylebone ♥

Hi guys ! Hope everyone is having a fun week so far ! Can't believe its Wednesday already!

Today I have a fun mani to share with you guys. I have been lusting after OPI My Vampire is Buff since FOREVER ! and been drooling over swatches of this beauty forever. When I finally spotted it , I knew I NEEDED this colour , and I'm so glad I got this beauty in my collection. This is really a PERFECT creme nude colour, and I love how amazing it looks on me .

For this look, I painted all the nails (except the accent nail ) with two coats of OPI My Vampire is Buff . Then I used a nail art brush and drew a triangle at my cuticle line for a fun half moon mani look with Nails Inc Marylebone. I then painted two coat of Nails Inc Marylebone on my accent nail. I LOOOOVVVVEEE these two colours together, it looks so soft and girly .

Let me share the pics with you -
 
 
 
And here is a photo of the polishes I used -
I hope you love this mani as much as I do ♥

Mint Mani for Talia Joy Castellano ♥


Hi guys ! Hope everyone is as glad as I am that it's Friday !

For those of you who might not know, the beauty community lost one of it's most treasured members on Tuesday morning ... Talia Joy Castellano.  Talia was a beautiful thirteen year old girl who was battling two horrible forms of cancer, neuroblastoma and preleukemia. She was also a supremely talented make up and nail artist.  You might have seen her amazing appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres show, where she was also made an honorary Cover Girl!

The last mani she posted on Instagram was a mint green mani , and a bunch of bloggers decided to dedicate this Friday to her,  and wear a mint green or green mani in Honor of Talia Joy.

So here is my mint green mani to remember the wonderful Talia Joy -
For this mani I used two coats of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Green Tea . It's really a gorgeous light mint green colour . I am really starting to love mint green colours now, I picked up this beauty at Clicks for R20 at their sale bin, so it was a total bargain too♥ For the accent nail I used two silver rhinestones .


She really had incredible talent and such an amazing spirit to keep herself positive through out her treatments. ♥
If you did a mint mani to remember Talia Joy, please feel free to leave the link in the comments and I'll gladly add it here.  Remember to use the hastags #MintManisForTaliaJoy and #TaliasLegacy on Twitter and Facebook too.

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend ♥

OPI AvoJuice - Coconut Melon Hand & Body Lotion

Hi guys ! Hope everyone is having a great week so far . Mine has been super busy with my brother still in hospital, and a few craft projects I'm doing at the moment at home.

Today I'm sharing a hand lotion review with you. A few weeks back my hands were really starting to take a beating with this cold weather, so badly it started to feel super dry and started to show small cracks on my hands. I was searching high and low for a good affordable hand cream, but nothing seems to help. I got a few of these mini sizes to try out in different scents , and I'm so glad I did ! This hand lotion is AMAZING !!! Another huge bonus for me it's not oily at all, and it absorbs so quickly into your skin, a HUGE bonus especially at work were I can't just sit and wait for a hand cream to absorb a little. It's non greasy and has an amazing scent too .

This scent is the coconut melon one, and I love how it instantly remind me of the beach and a tropical island. The smell isn't too overwhelming, but it smells like a holiday (making this the perfect lotion to use at work and home when your day needs a little bit of cheering up ! ) . The scents also stays on your skin for quite some time too, leaving you with moisturised soft hands.

I'm really impressed what a HUGE difference it made , my hands now feel soft and hydrated, don't think I'll ever use any other cream again . ♥

The mini 30ml OPI Avojuice retails at Perfect Ten for R40,00 but since you only use a little at a time, this is really worth it in my opinion . I have a few other scents too, and once they get finished too I will be reviewing them.

Hope you have a awesome Wednesday !

OPI - Can't Let Go Liquid Sand

Hi guys ! Hope everyone had a fun weekend ! Mine was super busy, my brother had taken ill and was taken up in hospital on Friday , so spend most of my time there visiting him.

Today I'm showing you another one of the gorgeous Mariah Carey Liquid Sands . This one is Can't Let go, and is a gorgeous purple texture polish with small purple hexagon and fine glitter in the mix. This is really so gorgeous, I just love textures in general, and this is another gorgeous one.

The texture was the same as Stay The Night, again a finer texture than the China Glaze ones . I used two coats of this gorgeous colour in the swatches below -

Again , this texture polish is another winner in my books. ♥ The textures really wear like iron , and I love how this one just has the most gorgeous sparkle.

Hope you have a lovely Monday !!

Revlon ColourStay : Stormy Night

Hi guys ! Thank goodness it's Friday ! It's been a hell of a week, but it's finally weekend !! And I'm actually loving the cold weather in JHB too !

Today I'm showing you a gorgeous nail polish from Revlon Colour Stay range. This beauty is called Stormy Night .. And it's such a gorgeous colour for winter . ♥ It's a grey-ish brown colour, that is super opaque, I could have easily gotten away with one coat of this gorgeous colour, but used two . I just love colours like these, they are such a perfect neutral colour, perfect for the office, and gorgeous too . And I love the name too, I'm a big fan of stormy nights with rain and thunder.

The colour stay polishes last a good 5days on me before my tip wear gets to bad or I have chipping . Really great polishes , and the colours in the range is so lovely too. 

Shown below are 2 coats of Revlon Colour Stay Stormy Night -
Isn't this such a lovely colour ?? I just love how perfect it is for the chilly weather were having here. 

Anyone have any fun plans for the weekend ?? I'm planning on just getting some things done around the house, and just chilling.
