Frankenstein Bride Mani

Hi guys ! Happy Halloween (And Friday of course.. )

Today I bring you another Halloween mani - Frankenstein's Bride . I knew this was a design I wanted to try the moment I saw it ... And I'm so glad I did. It's pretty easy and the colours just screams Halloween. 

So onto the nails -

I decided to mix it up with a few days in, and changed the Frankenstein's Bride nail into a patchwork nail too.. I'm sharing the pics too... (As this is the mani I'm wearing for our Halloween party tonight )

The polishes I used - Tip Top Orange You Lovely
Tip Top We Have An Agreenmint Revlon Oi Beautiful 
Tip Top Black Forest A bow stud
Anyone have any fun Halloween plans ??

Purple Studded Skittlette

Hi guys ! Hope you are having a great week so far.

Since I didn't want to show just Halloween looks on the blog this week, I decided to sneak in a little purple skittlette on the blog today.

It's no secret that I LOVE studs.. (I have way to many to even count... oops ! ) When Voni from For The Love of Nail Art did a gorgeous studded look on her blog last week, I had a sudden urge to do the same 3 studded accent nail. It was seriously love at first sight... (Giggles... )

So onto my purple studded skittlette mani -
For this mani I used :
Revlon Oi Beautiful 
Tip Top Black Forest
3 Square silver studs

What do you think of this look ??

REN Masks Review

Hi guys ! Hope you are having a great week so far .

Today I'm going to share my thoughts on 3 awesome REN masks I received to review. I'm a BIG fan of masks and I do use them weekly in my routine. These masks came at a great time, as my face was acting up a little from the season change. 

Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask (R520 )This is one of my favourites. This mask really helps to make your skin look brighter , radiant and healthy. This mask does have a little bit of a tingling feeling when you put it on but nothing intense . I really love to use this mask once a week and makes my skin looks really healthy and super smooth. 

Clarimatte™ Invisible Pores Detox Mask (R360 )
This is a detoxifying clay mask that is designed to reduce the appearance of pores and leaves your skin smooth and soft. This is really great to use when you want to give your skin a good "cleaning" mask . I did notice after a few uses my pores looks a little smaller . What I like is this mask (being …

Catrice Breast Cancer Awareness Mani

Hi guys ! Happy Monday ! Hope you had a great weekend .

Today I'm sharing a fun and super easy Breast Cancer Awareness mani with you using two Catrice polishes. This look is SUPER easy, so I included a little tutorial at the end of the post.

The two Catrice polishes I used where Fuchsiarama and I'm So aNude. 
(I received the Fuchsiarama in my Breast Cancer Awareness pack... I'm so aNude is a polish from my own collection )

So onto the nail look -

And the tutorial. I used a small dotting tool to create the breast cancer ribbon, but you can use a nail art pen / toothpick .. Whatever you prefer.

So again .. As I mentioned last week... You can still enter the Give-away... 
And here's how : (CONTEST CLOSED ! ) I will be giving away 2 R500 Pink Catrice Hampers :

Breast Cancer Awareness Make-Up look with Catrice !

Hi guys ! Hope you had a great weekend !

As you all know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month , and as part of this , Catrice Cosmetics would like to cheer survivors and support the fighters. 

I was asked to come up with a fun pink inspired look. I will show the look at the end but I'm also giving a mini-review about each product and a little give-away in the end too !

Catrice Liquid Metal Eyeshadow Mauves Like Jagger
This is a stunning metallic eyeshadow colour , and really gives a liquid like effect. I love how the eyeshadow is shaped too with little "waves" in the eyeshadow. I used this on the centre of my eye in the make-up look.

Catrice Better Than False Lashes Ultra Black Mascara One word - WOW ! I love the volume this mascara gives your lashes .. But the best part for me personally is this has staying power. I do tend to "rub" my eyes through the day, and this mascara stayed in place. I even had to work to take it off at night .. Just love this tube of ma…

MD Lash Factor Eyelash Conditioner

Hi guys ! Hope your having a great week so far . Can you believe we are already in October ? The year has seriously flown by so fast .
Today I have a review of the MD Lash Factor Eyelash Conditioner. MD Lash Factor™ is a physician-formulated eyelash conditioner that improves the appearance of natural lash length, fullness, and thickness. MD Lash factor is ideal for people with thinning lashes or anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their eyelashes naturally.
Unlike false eyelashes or messy mascaras that only creates an illusion of longer lashes, MD Lash Factor works to enhance your eyelashes natural beauty. 
Studies suggest that MD Lash Factor promotes the appearance of longer, fuller, thicker eyelashes in as little as 4-5 weeks. A scientific study confirmed that patients who used MD Lash Factor for one month saw over 50% improvement in the appearance of their natural eyelash length.

My thoughts : Just before I was sent this eyelash serum to review, I bought some false eyelashes. …
