Spring Daisies

First off i would like to apologise that my weekly nail post is a bit late, its been a rough week for me mentally and although i have been receiving the best care from all the staff, i still couldn't find the motivation to do my nails until last night.

I was in River Island this weekend picking up some gifts for the birthday's i have coming up, and i was browsing by the jewellery stand and there were daisies everywhere, headbands, necklaces, earrings, the lot! So i bought some pale pink ones for someone in my family and also picked up some neon pink ones that i thought would go well with my black tunnel that i always wear. But as i was looking at the more girly colours and i just knew i had to do daisy themed nails this week and i love them!

"What's in my handbag" collaboration post!

A few weeks back i saw a fellow beauty blogger asking if anyone wanted to participate in her "Whats in my bag" post, and i thought it was a great idea and joined in!
The post is now up on Natalies (super cute) blog and you can see it now on http://www.natalieblogsmakeup.blogspot.co.uk/
It was fun to do, especially as i love nosey-ing through peoples bags, so Natalie's post is like an online version of that!

My Nivea Addiction.

I love moisturising and i do it several times a day. I have been blessed (not) with dry and sensitive skin and i hate it! If my hands start to feel a little dry its like i have to moisturise, its one of those things that goes through me. For me, when it comes to moisturising there is only one brand I will use, and that's Nivea. I've used Nivea for years now, its the perfect brand. I get variety in the types of moisturiser for my dry skin, they always 100% do the job, they always smell gorgeous, they're cheap and it is perfect for combating my dry skin without making my skin flare up. So I thought I would review all my Nivea products.

Tribal Nails.

I have a stretched ear, and i was online looking at these gorgeous wooden tribal plugs when i thought that they would look pretty awesome on my nails! They were very fun to paint, as every nail is different so i didn't get bored, and like usual i have a studded accent nail to go with it.

My Mascara Routine

For me, no eye shadow look is complete without mascara and it is the main feature. For me, its all about the eyes, everything just looks better with lots of mascara. So seeing as it is my favourite makeup product i thought i would share my mascara routine with you all.

Mint Green and Square Studs!

I was a bit lost for inspiration this week, so i had a good old rummage in my nail kit box and realised its been ages since i've used studs, so the manicure grew from that really! Sometimes i just paint and see where it takes me, and everyone loves a bit of spontaneous nail art. So this week we have mint green nail polish with square studs, and an accent nail thrown in for good measure!

Loreal Studio Secrets Pro Lip Tint review

I have a confession, i hate having gloss or anything similar on my lips. I hate the texture, i hate the way my long hair will find its way to my lips and then get stuck, they make my lips feel slimy. I'm strange i know! So because of this it means i have a vast collection of matte-ish lipsticks and lip tints. So i thought i would review my favourite lip tint by Loreal and its their Studio Secrets Pro Lip Tint.

Diamonds and Striping Tape

Before i get on with today's post i would like to apologise for my absence, my mental health took a beating over this new year period and a lot of days it took all my energy just to get out of bed in the morning, let alone paint my nails! But i got through it in one piece, so here i am!

This manicure was created using striping tape and two nail polishes that i have wanted to use together for ages!
