O.P.I save me polish

I had to buy this as soon as i saw it this morning...

From the Nicki Minaj O.P.I Collection this blingy polish has tiny silver glitter particles and lots of multi coloured holographic strands running through it.
It looks great over any coloured polish for a stunning blingy look.

Please excuse my dry looking fingers!
I love O.P.I they are so easy to apply,dry so fast and last for ages :)

Nicole Sherzinger Manchester Apollo

I acquired a couple of tickets to go and see the great Nicole Sherzinger at the Manchester Apollo theatre last night,on her first solo tour.
She is as stunning in real life than she is on TV,she is very tall and unbelievably slim.
She started of with a few songs i had not heard of but then soon started to belt out some newer songs as well as a few of my pussycat doll favourites, which really got the crowd on their feet.
She finished with a great performance of 'Don't hold your breath'
I really enjoyed it,it was energetic and fun,i would recommend going to see her if you get the chance. :)

I have just received my march Glossy box...

Heres what it contained...

  • IMPRESS press on nails- A little disappointed at this but my daughter will use them
  • Paul Mitchell quick slip styler-Again will not use but daughter might use it
  • DUWOP Venom lip gloss- I like the look of this and cant wait to try
  •  BM pure mineral eyeshadow in Her Majesty shade- not a colour i would use and prefer baked eyeshadow
COMO SHAMBHALA invigorate shower gel- Smells great and cant wait to try

As i was not 100% happy this month i have decided to cancel,i bet next months will be fab and i will be kicking myself,oh well!

What do you think of this months Glossybox? :)

Samples Galore,Thanks Body Shop!

I popped into my local Body Shop store the other day.I am having a little body shop revival at the moment and forgot how good their products are.
I spent an age in the shop with my daughter trying out their various products and smelling nearly everything in stock.
I loved the smell of the Banana Shampoo which i was informed that they have brought back as it was a must have in the 80's.
I asked for a sample as i wanted to make sure it was suited to my hair type and the lovely lady behind the counter obliged straight away.
She also then handed me two large sachets of their new Chocomania body lotion which smells Divine and a generous £3 voucher to spend in store (no minimum spend)
I opted for the gorgeous smelling Watermelon body lotion at £4 but with the voucher it only cost me £1.
Thankyou to the lovely Body shop staff and your lovely products,you made my day! :)

Free Soap and Glory Mascara with this months Elle Magazine

I bought this months Elle magazine after seeing that they were giving away a generous full sized Soap and Glory Thick and Fast false lash effect mascara.
The magazine costs over £3 but is worth it when the mascara on its own is worth £10.

The mascara wand is a lot thicker than the Clinique one that i am using and there doesn't look like there is a lot of product on the brush but with a careful hand and a few strokes,my lashes look longer,thicker and i am amazed at the False lash effect.
The mascara takes a little longer than i am used to to apply but i am loving the results.
The mascara stays looking good all day and is easy enough to remove with makeup remover or wipes.
I recommend the mascara but the magazine was a let down.
I don't usually but Elle and was very disappointed at the massive amount of advertisements and not a lot to read.
Although i think Alexa looks great on the cover,but i wont be buying this magazine again,unless of course there is a product incentive he he!
