Cute nail art

I love this nail look!

To do:

Thumbs & pinkie finger:

Light pink - Barry m Strawberry Ice

Middle Finger:

Gold Glitter - Barry M

Second finger & Index:

White - Rimmel Tip whitener

the nail art on the white paint I used a hot pink nail pen (just from primark!) and drew out a little bow. I then put a lite pink gem in the middle and used the same pink as on my thumb as the inside then just added a hot pink gem!

Elegant Touch - French Manicure (American Girl Pink) 103

Although my nails are naturally long they're not the best right now...yep I know gluing fake ones too them won't help but in the short term they'll look nicer.


These nails look super pretty however these are medium size and they're still quite short - most of my nails are the same size. But I guess this makes them more natural.

They have 24 nails within the packet although they don't have that many different sizes at all pretty! They pretty much only have one pinky finger size and so on the only one you could change was the thumb nail.

The glue isn't too great as one of my nails fell off just one day after putting them on. Although the glue applicator doesn't get all glued up and then not open-able so it's reusable!

I'm not sure I'd re-purchase these nails but they're pretty and a nice change from my own nails.

Pony tail

I don't usually have my hair up, in fact probably once in a blue moon!

But I was in Primark the other day and I stopped these beautiful hair ties so sparkly and cute as well as being super cheap!

I have hair extensions in for this hair style.

MAC Rebel Lipstick

So today I went into MAC and picked up a few things.

My favourite of which is MAC Rebel lipstick! I LOVE IT!

One thing I don't like however is how MAC have increased the price to £14! I remember the days when It was just £12.50.....I'm saving up my empties for Back to Mac though....

Bleach Blonde Hair Care

I used to work in a hair salon, also I have a qualification in hair styling.


I start off cleansing the dirt out of my hair with the tony and guy shampoo for damaged hair. Basically the first shampoo gets rid of all the product build up in your hair and any dirt, thus allowing the next shampoo to do its job properly.

I then use a purple shampoo either PRO:VOKE touch of silver or John Frieda sheer blonde colour renew.

The difference between the two is that the pro:voke one as you can see is very dark and so its stronger however it is very drying. If I feel that my hair doesn't need as much toning the John Frieda one isn't as strong and is less drying as you can see the texture is more creamy and silky looking.

Purple Shampoos are amazing! Basically what they do its remove and brassy/yellow tones out of your hair. It does this because purple or violet is the opposite of yellow on the colour chart and so because these shampoos have violet in them it contracts with the yellowness leaving a lighter/whiter shade of blonde.

However these only work on very pale blonde hair. If left on too long they can turn your hair purple - but don't worry a wash with fairy liquid gets the colour out ;-)) but shhh it's a secret. Also Unfortunately over time they do tend to try your hair out - not what a blonde girl needs really!


A good conditioner is always great! I use the SP Hydrate Conditioner when my hair isn't as dry and doesn't need as much moisture back into it. I also use a SP repair mask which Is one level up from a normal conditioner this is more repairing and hydrating etc than a normal conditioner it is used more as a treatment. I use this probably monthly or twice a month depending on how dry my hair is.

Blow-Dry Products:

The Redken anti-snap is a great product if your hair bleached to high hell and keeps snapping off at the ends. This product has totally stopped my hair from snapping off! You just apply it to towel dried ends and it adds needed protein back to your hair. Also a good trim helps with snapping.

I won't use the Redken every time though as it is a very strong and powerful product! Sometimes all you need is a lighter product to keep your hair in good conditioner in which case is use the Aveda damage remedy daily hair repair, again I just apply it to my ends. As you can see its a well loved product and I've had this for well over a year now, probably nearing two years and I still have product left it in! That's the thing with these expensive salon products they do last a hell of a long time!

For an all over heat protector I use the got 2b guardian angel, it's quite good it doesn't make your hair greasy or lank and I think it works against heat pretty well! I also is this when straightening or curling and I've had no problems with it.


For styling I use a hair oil Kerastase Elixir which wow it's just amazing, I got it free when I used to work in a hair salon and all the stylists used it on themselves and clients it really is an amazing product you can use it all over before washing your hair, as a massage treatment, before blow drying and after blow drying like a serum! Unfortunately though I'm nearly out and from what I remember this product is very very expensive I believe it was £30 for a full size. But I also gave half of my small bottle to my best friend - she brought a tub and I poured some out for her. But I will one day repurchase this as it really is amazing. Much better than the Moroccan oil which to be honest I'm not a fan of it I don't like the smell, how it leaves my hair lank and ugh no I'm not a fan of that but this I love!

I also use Mark Hill de-frizz shine serum which seems never ending I've literally had this for over a year or longer and I've hardly used any! It's a really great serum it stops fly aways and makes your hair really glossy but by no means greasy. I don't often use hairspray anymore because it has plastic in it and well that's not the best for your hair!

Aussie: Miracle Hair Insurance Leave in Conditioner

Yesterday I was in wilkinsons and saw this product, I'd heard a lot about It online being good and so on so I decided to pick on up I don't remember the exact price but it was under £4.

Today was my first day using it and WOW I heard it was good but I didn't expect it to be this good! It really is a miracle product. I used it on my own hair and my extensions - although on my extensions I put it on before straightening. Now I've had these extensions well over 6 months and they are getting thin and ratty and dry after silver/purple shampoo and this product has made them so soft! Like literally so soft as if they are brand new they feel like silk! As for my own hair it looks healthy and again is really soft - something that most bleach blondes can't get because well the bleach ruins your hair somewhat. This product also smells Devine I can't put my finger on the smell but trust me it's lovely! I defiantly want to purchase another bottle of this it's amazing!

Price - So cheap at under £4 but to be honest I'd pay well over the price for this it's like a salon product!

Packaging - It's clean sleek and simple the spray top is really sturdy and easy to use I also really like how it has the directions for use and the little kangaroos around the top.

Product - I really can't say enough it makes your hair super super silky soft it's smells lush and it works!

Ombré nail tutorial

I change my nails more than I change my clothes....and that's a lot! This nail design is really simple and easy to do I'm not the best at nail art nor do I have any special tools, so anyone can do this!

Things you'll need:
- base coat
- white nail polish
- 3 shades of nail polish
- a metallic colour
- glitter nail polish
- top coat
- a sponge

I used pinks and gold with a gold glitter on top but you can use whatever colours you want it's really just down to personal preference.

1. Apply a base coat to all your nails.

2. Apply white nail polish to the nails you want to be ombré you'll need 2 coats of this for it to work properly (remember 2 thin coats is better than 1 thick coat).

3. Apply a metallic colour to the remaining nail/s.

4. Once the white nails are COMPLETELY DRY...they must be completely dry otherwise it just ends up like a smudgy mess as I found out the first time I tried this...opps! (I have no patience haha) Apply the 3 colours onto your sponge, I find its best to apply thick coats.

5. Press the sponge against your nail apply quite a bit of pressure when doing this, as soon as it is done apply the top coat from the tip of your nail applying it downwards towards the cuticle it can be a thick layer of this. This just helps to merge all the colours together. You can then do the same to the rest of the nails, just make sure that you re-apply the colours to the sponge each time.

6. Apply the glitter onto the top of the metallic colour, you can also apply a top coat too.
