Spooky Halloween Nails

Hey Everyone,

As Halloween is just around the corner I thought I would sit down and create some easy spooky nail art.
My favorite one has definitely got to be the witches cat nail art but you can mix n match any of these, to make a vibrant and fun nail look!

1. Ghostly Face Nails - This was simply done with just a black nail art pen, very self explanatory. (Polishes used: Models Own Snow White and Models Own black nail art pen)

2. Witches Cat Nails - To create this nail art look I outlined a cats head and filled it in with black. Then I added some green eyes and I even used a silver glitter to add effect to the cats ears. (Polishes used: Claires' orange, Rimmel London Green Grass, Nail Inc Kingly Street and Models Own Black nail art pen)

3. Frankenstein Nails - This was all done with the black nail art pen, but if you want to make it easier you can used a fine liquid eyeliner. However, remember to seal with a topcoat so it doesn't rub off. (Polishes used: Rimmel London Green Grass and Black nail art pen)

4. Freaky Eyeball Nails
-  I always though it was really hard to create these nails but discovered that it's really simple.  It consists of creating different dots and just some red lines for the veins. Very easy but also very effective! (Polishes used: Barry M Blue Moon, Barry M Red, Models Own Snow White and black nail art pen)

5. Googly Eyes Nails - This is definitely the easiest, just create a small white dot then an even smaller black dot! (Polishes used: Barry M Black, Models Own white and black nail art pens)

I hope that this gave you some ideas on how to be in the Halloween spirit!

What was your favorite look? What are you planning to be for Halloween?

Maybelline Colour Tattoo Review

Hey Everyone!

Yes, I have finally got my hands on some Maybelline Colour Tattoos! I was so excited when I received these for my birthday, I straight away knew I wanted to do a review on them!

The shades that I have are On and On Bronze (Which is a bronze metallic shade) and Permanent Taupe (A matte taupe colour with purple and grey undertones)

They come in almost identical packaging to the Benefit ceaseless eyeshadows and the MAC Paint Pots, with the hard glass durable containers. They all have that slightly greasy but blend-able feeling which dries into a hard solid colour base.  With these, you have to work quite quickly otherwise they will dry and literally not move or crease! Which is amazing for me as I do have very oily eyelids. They do claim to last 24 hours, as the name suggests, but personally I don't think I will be wearing makeup that long, however they do last a good 12 hours at least. Also, the colour pigmentation is top notch! These could easily be mistaken as a high end beauty product.

I like to wear mine either just sweeped across the eyelid on its own or used as a base for any eyeshadows. Or I even use them as eyeliners which adds a cool smokey effect.

Overall, I am really impressed with these as they are great for a quick makeup look!
Have you tried these? Which one is your favourite?

Price - £4.99 at Superdrug or Boots.

Brandy ♥ Melville

Hey everyone, 

Sorry for being MIA but I have had such a busy month with it being my birthday but hopefully I will be posting more regularly now!

Brandy Melville clothes have been on my wishlist for quite a while now so I was really excited to finally go to the shop in London. 
It certainly lived up to my expectations and I loved so many of the clothes but sadly I couldn't have all of them!

I bought two tops and a skirt but I'm saving one of the tops for a future post. The clothes are super soft and their 'one size fits all' seemed to work, for me at least! I was also super happy to buy a pair of Topshop Chelsea boots, I know I'll get a lot of use out of them. 

Anyway, let's get on with the pictures!

Top - Brandy Melville // Skirt - Brandy Melville // Boots - Topshop

Hope you love this outfit as much as I do! 
Have you been to Brandy Melville?
