'Spring Nails'- Revlon 'Guava'

In Daylight

In Daylight

With Flash

Recently I have really liked the Revlon Top Speed Nail varnishes, It all came about as good Old Boots has their 3 for 2 offers on and I had heard some good things about the Revlon Top Speed Polishes I have to say they have lived up to their hype and I love them, they are fast becoming my favourite drugstore brand of polishes. When I got some on the 3 for2 I picked up 'Guava' 'Cupid'and 'Poppy'

The shade I'm wearing in these pictures is 'Guava' which is a stunning coral/peachy shade and so pretty for the Spring/Summer months, I used 2 coats which applied like a dream and obviously the name gives it away but they dry very quick, me being me I did manage to have an itch and smudge a nail whilst it was still a little wet though!

I love this shade really do think it is a pretty colour and will look amazing with a tan when on holiday.
You can buy these in Boots and they retail for £6.49 in Boots and at the minute they have their 3 for 2 offers on, YAY!

What Nail polishes are you liking at the min? Have you tried the Revlon Top Speed ones?

MAC Blush Love


Pink Swoon -  Firstly this is a sheertone blush so the pigmentation is not fantastic, but when I was looking around for a new blush I just wanted a nice baby pink shade which i could just wear everyday to work and in general and would just give my cheeks that nice 'flushed' work and this ticks all the boxes. I apply it using my Real Techniques blush brush as find it picks up and depoists more of it than my other brushes. So if you are looking for a nice everyday spring time baby pink blush to give a nice natural colour to ya cheeks this is the one for you.

Retails for £17 and can be purchased online,instores such as Selfridges,House Of Fraser,or any Pop up MAC store.

Dainty- Is the first Mineralize blush I got from MAC and my love for this keeps growing come spring time iof I can't decide on a blush this is the one I always reach to, it is such a beautiful  pink shade with hints on shimmer in,described on the Mac website as ' Light Yellow Pink with hint of Gold' In the pan you can't see any shimmer then when I swatched it using my fingers it has stunning little flecks of shimmer in it which make for a perfect blush on a night out. With it being a mineralize blush you can have this as bright or as subtle as you wish as you can layer it up, It is a dream to apply and again I use my Real techniques blush brush for this which I adore as well.

These retail for £19.

.OPI 'Gouda Gouda Two Shoes'- From their Dutch collection is a beautiful muted pink with stunning shimmer in.
OPI 'Fly'-Is stunning I love this sky blue shade and love layering glitter over the tops of it, will look so nice on toenails come the summer walking along the beaches
OPI 'Save Me' -An amazing glitter base polish with lots of hologrpahic  strands in it,can either layer it up sand where it on it's own or add that extra touch to a shade .
OPI' Are we there yet?'- I've had this shade for a long time now it has been neglected quite a bit until recently when I have fallen in love with it, a gorgeous melon shade with a very subtle hint of shimmer in it.
OPI Metallic for life- I know isn't a very 'spring/summer' shade but I have been loving this a lot at the min so i thought I would just chuck it in for good measure
OPI Suzi pedal faster- Beautiful baby pink/lavender shade with hint of shimmer needs 2/3 coats to get full coverage though as very sheer.
OPI Kiss me on the Tulips- I'm wearing this at the moment it is a bright pink and looks bright in the bottle but once it hits the nails it has another level of brightness and I love it.
OPI 'Red Lights Ahead.....Where?'- This is going straight on my toes as soon as we get hot sunny weather this is an amazing shade a coral/hot red just automatically reminds me off summer
OPI Did It On Em- A beautiful lime green shade which again just reminds me of summertime.

I'm also loving my good ol faithful Barry M =Peach Melba,Blue Moon and Mint Green.
Obviously can never really see the shades that clearly in pictures, So if you want me to a specific Nail of the day post then just let me know and I will.

I wanted to share with you a product I have been reaching for every single day for the last month or so and that is MAC MSF Soft and Gentle.

L-R W/out Flash , With Flash

L-R W/Out Flash, With flash and blended

I have so much love for this product it is a stunning  marbleised shades of gold, bronze and is described by MAC as a overall ultra-deluxe polish to the face.

Personally I just use this as my highlighter for my cheeks and also down my nose sometimes as well, I've tried many highlighters and Benefit Girl Meets Pearl was my 'Holy Grail' in highlighters until I met Soft and Gentle and now I am hooked.It gives such a beautiful glowy/healthy look with a hint of shimmer.

 I know I will be re purchasing this once it runs out which I don't think will be for a long time yet.
I also love how it applies so easily, like a dream really. I've heard some people use it as an eyeshadow as well, which I can see could be quite pretty but personally for me I'll be sticking to just using it as my everyday highlighter.

Have you tried MAC MSF Soft and gentle? Thoughts? What highlighters do you like?

February Faves

||Nails|| There are four polishes which I have been loving this month and they are OPI 'Fly' which is such a pretty shade for spring and summer I love it, and also OPI 'Save me' a stunning glitter packed polish with holographic strands which is amazing on it's own or I have been layering it over a pink toned nude or on my ring finger with another polish on the other fingers, adore both these.

Then from Butter London's new Spring collection I been wearing 'Trout Pout' which is a pretty coral/orange shade and will be so pretty in the summer. And 'Disco Biscuit' which is a stunning pink with beautiful specks in it when the light hits ya nails this looks amazing.

||Lips||The only Lipstick I have been wearing a lot of this month is MAC CremeCup I love it and can tell will be wearing it a lot more.
||Face Products||
This month i have been obsessed with MAC Mineralize blush in DAINTY such a stunning colour with a little shimmer in it but not overpowring which i like, It has been my most reached for blush recently.
For my eyeshadow I recently got a MAC Mineralize shadow in DAYLIGHT which is a stunning lavender/pinky shade and i've been wearing it everyday,I personally think it is stunning and love it.

And then the last product which I have been obsessed with this month is MAC Mineralize skinfinish in Soft and Gentle I am in love with this product it gives so a stunning glow to my cheekbones I love it.

As for brushes I love my Real Techniques Blush Brush it is amazing, so soft and blends my blush in so well, I wouldn't be without it.

This month I have been loving my No7 'Beautiful Skin' Foaming Cleanser, It smells so nice and really helps my keep my skin nice and soft and really cleans my make up off .

I also picked up a Sanctuary 'Radiance  Facial Exfoliator' I've been using it everyday for lasst two weeks and I can tell the difference in my skin already,It has a lovely citrus scent to it and even though it's an exfoliator it feels very nice and soft of my face and is really helping against any breakouts which I might have.

And last but never least is my Soap and Glory 'Peaches and Clean 4-1 Deep Cleansing Milk' and to say I am in love with this is an understatement it smells AMAZING i want to drink it lol, I use this every night before bed and my skin feels so soft afterwards.
Using these three products is doing my skin wonders at the minute and I haven't had any breakouts which is fantastic.
