I popped over the the lovely Jaino Nail and Beauty Salon to have a gorgeous Gelish 21 day manicure for tried and tested over at Total Guide to. Sharon was my nail technician and she was brilliant. She seriously has the most amazing collection of colours and designs - more than I have ever seen anywhere!

Makeup // Chanel Nail Polish in Elixir

Monday, 26 August 2013

I was so excited to get my hands on this nail polish - especially as it's called Elixir! It's one of three new additions the the Chanel range and is part of their Superstition range for A/W13.

It's wears really well, you get a full coverage in one coat. Previously, I have been a little disappointed with the lack of pigment in some of Chanel's other colours - needing almost 4 coats to get a solid colour is never a good thing. This one however is packed with pigment and is solid in one clean sweep. The colour is a little deeper than in the pic - which makes it look a little pale. It's kinda like a mixed raspberry-cherry red toned down a little. I think it's fab - it's not so cherry red it glows and it's not so raspberry that it's pink. Perfect if you ask me!

A/W13 will be dominated with red nails and simple eyes. This is a great excuse for me to add to my somewhat limited red nail polish collection.

What nail polishes have caught your eyes of late? Do you have a favourite red shade? I'd love to know!

Paint Pot Nails for TGtS

Saturday, 20 July 2013

You will, I hope, have read or taken a peek at my Summer Hair Article for TGtS (Total Guide to Swindon). I really enjoy writing pieces for the site and I'm really thrilled with the lovely feedback I've received
 - so thank you all!

Along side the hair piece, I also did an article on Beauty Trends for Summer 2013. I had a lot of fun with Photoshop, and researching, to bring together the bright bold colours for the summer season. Here is a sneaky peek of my nails collage - click on the image or here to see the full article. 

Enjoy!
