Okay, I’ve been working on this blog post for a while because it’s taken some time to buy the products and I needed to trial them too. Basically I’ve been trying cheaper alternatives for the Original Beauty Blender that are more affordable than the £16 price tag… for a sponge. Yes I did buy one for the purpose of this blog post and just to see what everyone was raving about! I used an Amazon voucher though because I didn’t want to spend that much on what is essentially a makeup sponge.
I have another little Christmas Haul today with the bits and pieces that I got in my stocking, and a little purchase I treated myself to. This is mostly going to be a picture gallery.
First up are the P.S Love Nail Polish mini sets that I received from my boyfriend in my stocking. They only issue I had with these was the smell, otherwise they’re pretty decent for the price and I got a good range of colours.
Next up are the Lacura Beauty nail care items that I received from ‘Santa’ in the stocking mum requested for me 😉 I’m excited to try these out properly as I’ve only used each one once so far so I can’t give a full review of them just yet.
The Nail Brightener claims to leave the nails looking healthy and natural with regular use.
The Nail Hardener claims to restore thin and weak nails to their former beauty by using micro-diamond particles which help to prevent the nails from splitting and breaking , giving them a beautiful shine. And finally the Nail Oil gives the nails back their natural shine and has a unique triple-action formal of apricot, almond and macadamia oil which provides moisture and care to brittle and broken nails. It also contains vitamin E. It strengthens nails and softens cuticles.
The last thing here is the ‘To me from me’ gift. I purchased these from Charming Tale just before christmas, sadly Leanne is taking a break from making Charming Tale polishes just now so I can’t telly you to go buy any but here they are!
2 coats, no topcoat. This is a gorgeous white/silver shimmery polish that is perfect for winter manis.
Spinning Top and Snow Queen
These are both glitter toppers – Spinning Top is gold and Snow Queen is silver/white. Both are very subtle but very gorgeous and I can’t wait to play with these more.
So that’s all I received for Christmas nail polish wise this year. Don’t forget to go check out my post on the Models Own polishes I received.
