Evening dolls. Not only have I been feeling quite blue recently, but so have my nails! In this horrid (and not to mention absolute freak show) weather I wanted something bright on my nails. I am getting a little bored of my usual pinks, corals, reds and darks and wanted something a little different. I was on the hunt of a nice, bright blue and along came Bleu Fabuleux by Bourjois.
Bleu Fabuleux by Bourjois £5.99 available from Boots HERE.
I picked up this little bottle on trip to Boots or Superdrug (I can’t quite remember which one). It’s pretty much the only bright blue that I could find in the UK drugstores. In a nut shell the colour is gorgeous, application is a dream but longevity is absolutely RUBBISH!
I rarely (and I mean RARELY) blog about products that I don’t like but I actually love the colour. However, I now remember why I steer clear from Bourjois nail polishes – they just don’t seem to last on me. But then again, I can’t complain too much as I tend to switch up my nail colour every 2ish days. But still, paying almost £6 for a nail polish that doesn’t even last me 24 hours let alone 7 days like it says on the bottle – I’d be a fool to buy this again
Have you tried Bourjois nail polishes before? What do you think of them?
Happy Sunday my beauties. I hope you’re all keeping well in yet again this horrible, horrible weather. Did I mention it’s HORRIBLE?! All this change in weather has made me get quite ill over the past couple of weeks, hence lack of blogging and YouTube-ing. But I should be back with a bang! I have made a decision and this cold and flu isn’t going to get the best of me. I’ve been meaning to film a video on my America haul but just haven’t got round to doing it… However, I couldn’t keep this find to myself any longer! Meet the Peter Thomas Roth FIRMx Peeling Gel.
Peter Thomas Roth FIRMx Peeling Gel $48 available from Sephora HERE.
When I was in America earlier this year, I spent a good few hours in Sephora, soaking up the goodness and amazing brands (no lie, I could totally live there!). There was such a lovely store manager who was showing me around and introduced me to the newly launched Peter Thomas Roth FIRMx Peeling Gel, which had launched that day.
This peeling gel has lots of multi action enzymes, which include pineapple, pomegranate, and keratinase, and also cellulose which help peel away dead skin cells and leaves your skin with a radiant and literally new complexion! It also removes any impurities in the skin and decongests clogged pores for a youthful look. This is a great product as it is formulated without parabens, sulphates and phthalates – keeping nasty chemicals at bay! There was only one left in stock which was basically a sign that I needed it in my life!
I totally got sucked into buying this as it comes out in a gel form, and once massaged into your skin you can literally see all of your dead skin cells coming off! Cue gross (yet really interesting) picture below…
Yes, people – that is all the dead skin cells on the back of my hand! Crazy right? One thing love about this product is that it not drying on my skin – considering it can be quite a strong treatment for your face especially for me as I tend to use quite mild and easy going products in my skincare routine. I only use this once a week or so but every time I do use it I feel like I have new skin on my face, it’s so incredibly good!
I’m looking forward to the day we can get this in the UK (damn you Sephora and America getting all these amazing products before us!).
What do you think about peeling gels? Have you tried Peter Thomas Roth before?
Hi my gems, how are you all doing? I’ve been very bad at blogging and YouTube-ing recently (doesn’t help with being ill in the slightest!). But I’m slowly getting better and less bunged up – high five to that! I thought I’d show you my current nail polish storage as it’s just too pretty to keep to myself! Please excuse the shoddy iPhone pictures, I was in a rush today and didn’t manage to take any fancy snaps from my DSLR.
3 Drawer Stationary Storage from Joules £20 available HERE.
I’ve been looking for the perfect drawers to store my polishes in for a very long time and it’s not until I spotted this absolute beauty a few weeks ago. It’s got the most beautiful floral pattern on it, sure enough to brighten anyones day (let alone their nails)
The drawers themselves are super sturdy for something which is made from thick cardboard and not to mention great quality. I love the little detailing of the fabric tabs, how adorable are they?
Here’s a quick run down of what’s stored in the drawers. I think this shows just how much of a huge ORLY fan I am!
On the top drawer I keep all of my pinks, corals, peaches and nail treatments in. These are the colours I tend to wear more of, hence getting first dibs in here.
The second drawer holds some blues, greens, purples, blacks and nudes. This has a great mix of colours that I can wear pretty much any time of the year
In the last draw I keep all of my glitters and then random selection of other colours and brands. It’s a bit of a mix-match but a very sparkly and beautiful mix-match none-the-less! The drawers tend to hold about 25/27 ORLY polishes, which is the biggest bottle out there, holding a whopping 18ml! I would say the drawers can hold up to around 30-35 polishes, which is a lot of nail painting goodness
Great thing about these drawers is that I can pop bits on the top. Here I keep majority of the things I use for a manicure – base coat, top coat, quick dry drops, cuticle and hand cream, cuticle tools, nail files, the amazing Bourjois nail polish remover and a few polishes that I’m currently loving
The stationary by Joules is just so, SO pretty (I even grabbed myself a gorgeous floral notepad for work)! Have you checked out the Joules stationary section before? You can see most of their stationary bits by clicking HERE.
How do you store your nail polishes? I’d love to know
