W7 nail products review

  
Hi everyone! So today im going to be reviewing a few products from the brand W7! I have a few of their nail polish’s already that I love, so when I was sent to try out these products, I was delighted! I received a nail polish remover, 3 polishes, and a nail strengthener. Also, sorry that I’ve been MIA the past week, I just went back to school, and I’ve had so much work to do! So I will be posting every weekend from now on. ๐Ÿ˜Š 

   
    

Here are the 3 polishes I was sent to try out, a cobalt blue, a metallic silver, and a top coat. 

  
    
  
I really love this blue polish! It’s a lot like “Barry M felt hi shine in blue grape” but not as bright. It was fully opaque in 2 coats, and had a lovely shine, before I applied the top coat. (the pics above are with the top coat)

  
This silver is soooo pretty! It was opaque in 1 coat, but I did 2 coats anyway๐Ÿ˜‰ I needed a new silver nail polish, so this is going to be used in a few of my upcoming nail art tutorials! I used the top coat on this silver aswell, as I found the colour a bit flat with out it.

   
 
Here is the next product, a “nail builder” I have quite strong long nails, as it runs In my family, but I’m really excited to try this out! I will post another review in about a months time, just giving you all an update on how this product worked.

   
 
Finally, we have the nail polish remover! I love using these types of removers, Im currently using the bourjois remover, and this is just as good! It doesn’t take off glitter polishes very well, but I expected that, as glitter is such a pain to get off!! 

Overall, I’m really happy with the W7 nail polishes, etc. I will definitely be expanding my range of their products, as they’re such great value for money!! Here’s a link to there website, where you can buy all these products: W7 cosmetics.

I hope you all have a great day, and I have a collab post coming next Saturday, so keep your eyes peeled! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Thanks for reading!!

Easy Turquoise glitter nail art tutorial

  
Hi everyone! Todays tutorial is a really quick and pretty silver glitter design. I think this glitter design is perfect for a special occasion, as it’s so simple, but really pretty! You can use any base colour as you want, I just went with the turquoise, because summer isn’t over yet!๐Ÿ˜‰

  
Here are the polishes I used, from left to right they are:

  • No7 stay perfect base coat
  • Catrice nail polish “Swimbledon”
  • Barry M nail paint “diamond glitter”

  

  
  
First I applied a base coat, then 2 coats of this amazingggg turquoise nail polish by Catrice! You can read my quick review on it here

  
Then, I cleaned off both sides of the glitter polish brush, so there was barely any polish on it, and I just brushed the tips of my nails with the glitter. That picture above is after one coat of glitter, and I found I needed to do 3 coats, to get it where I wanted it to be.

I hope you all liked this really easy tutorial! If you have any request make sure to comment down below! Thanks for reading, and have a great day! ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Summer Favorites | Top 10 Essentials


Hey everyone! Today I’m doing a collab post with the lovely Amy from Polishedbyamy! We decided to do a top 10 Summer favourites round up, and we did 5 favourites each, so you can read Amy’s 5 favourites over on her blog that I linked above!

1. Cocoa Brown 1 hour tan “dark”



This is my favourite fake tan ever!! If you live in Ireland, you know that we don’t get much sun, because it’s always raining๐Ÿ˜‚ But, with the Cocoa Brown “original” tan you can keep it on for 1 hour “light” 2 hours “medium” or finally 3 hours for a dark tan. I used to always leave the original one on for 3 hours, but I found the new darker version in penneys a while ago, and I’ve been using it ever since! This is perfect for all us pale girls! (If you would like me to do a review on all the cocoa brown products, let me know!

2. Hollister body spray “crescent bay”


This is my go to scent for the summer! I don’t like to wear it in the winter though, as it’s a bit sweet and fruity! It reminds me of watermelons! The Hollister sprays are a bit expensive, but they are definitely worth it in my opinion!

3. Catrice nail polish “(S)wimbledon”

I only bought this a few days ago, and I love it! I love turquoise polishes, because they suit almost every skin type. This one is a very bright turquoise shade, with some silver shimmer running through it, but the shimmer isn’t that noticeable once you applied it your nails. I’ll be doing a review on this in a few days, and it will include swatches of this polish etc, so keep your eyes peeled!๐Ÿ˜‰

4. Mac prep and prime transplant finishing powder. (Pressed)



 

 Since I have very dry skin, I’ve always had a problem trying to find a powder that doesn’t emphasise my dry patches! My mother actually bought this for me as a birthday present, because she heard it was good for any skin type. I’ve been using it for the past few weeks and it’s amazing!! It blurs imperfections, and suits any skin colour since its transparent, and it’s perfect for very dry to oily skin! Definitely a summer favourite for me!

5. Mac lipstick “creme cup”

Mac lippie colage

This was another early birthday present that I got off my friend! I usually go for more nude/soft pink lipsticks for my everyday look, but I do like to wear a bright lip every now and then!๐Ÿ˜‰ This is a cool toned light pink colour, usually pale pinks make me look like a ghost, but not this one! I think it would be too light on darker skin tones though. It’s a perfect everyday nude lip colour for summer, and winter!

So that’s it for my Summer beauty favourites! Like I said before, make sure you check out Amys favourites that I linked at the start! I hope you liked this post, and have a great day!  ๐Ÿ™‚

Purple Aztec Nail art tutorialย 

  
Hi everyone! Today’s tutorial is a design that I did on my first nail art wheel (you can read it Here) and it was requested by a few of you! Sorry I’m so late posting this, but here’s a tutorial on how to do it! 

  
Here are the polishes I used, from left to right they are:

  • Essie “blanc”
  • NYC “prince street”
  • Essie “licorice”
  • Sally Hansen complete care 4 in 1
  • Barry M nail art pen “black”
  • Nail art brush

  
First I painted my ring finger and thumb white, and the rest of my nails purple.

  
Here’s a tutorial on how I did the accent nails! ๐Ÿ™‚ I used a Barry m black nail art pen, and a purple nail polish on a nail art brush.

  
Then I added a top coat, to add some shine, and your finished!!

  
Here’s a pic with the flash, I absolutely love this purple! It’s kind of like a metallic purple, with a blue undertone.  I hope you all enjoyed this tutorial, and if any of you try out this design, comment down below! Have a great day! ๐Ÿ™‚ (btw, it’s my birthday tomorrow!๐ŸŽ‰)
