Current Favourite Nail Polishes

(link to the video on my youtube channel)

1) Essie 'Love Dovie'
2) Barry M 'Strawberry'
3) Topshop 'High Voltage'
4) Topshop 'Blitz'
5) Barry M 'Berry'
6) Topshop 'Peaches and Cream'
7) Topshop 'Smashing Pumpkin'
8) Topshop 'Valley'
9) Topshop 'Utilitarian' 
10) Topshop 'Brazil' 
*numbers 4 and 9 aren't included in the video
*number 10 I somehow missed off, but it's in the video

Topshop definitely have the best colours when it comes to nail polish (for me anyway) which is probably why I have loads of them! I do tend to stick to lower price/drug store polishes just because I do think they are usually good value for money HOWEVER if I do fall in love with a shade from a higher end collection I may end up treating myself for instance I've got my eye on Butter London 'Bossy Boots' sooooooo that may be added to my collection very soon! And Essie polishes may be creeping up the ladder.

What are your favourite polishes?

Clearasil Treatment Cream

Okay so I've never really suffered with spots, I've just had the causal couple every know and then. However over the past couple of weeks my face has held multiple spot parties in ONE particular area (my chin) so within reason I've been getting pretty annoyed. I'm very unsure of my skin type, it's normal (I'd say) on my cheeks but then oily around my t-zone so yeah...

I was looking at the facial aisles in Superdrug and there was a huge selection but I opted for this one. You're supposed to apply a thin layer directly onto spots every morning and every night. So that is what I did.

Much to my amazement IT ACTUALLY WORKS (hallelujah). I've had this cream for about 3 days and  I now swear by it.  My spots have significantly reduced and all red areas also. 

SO if you do suffer with spots then I highly recommend this product:
Clearasil Ultra Rapid Action Treatment Cream! Retailing at £6.49

Hope this helps! X

Beauty Wishlist

Over the past couple of weeks I have discovered a variety of different products from watching different beauty video's on YouTube and also from the blogs I follow. I have done a bit of 'window' shopping and I've come up with a sufficient list. I enjoy these kinds of posts so I thought I'd let you know what I've been eyeing up.

1. Nars Skin Purifying Foam Cleanser (£20.00)  2. TAAJ HIMALAYA MICELLAR WATER (£16.00) 3. Laura Mercier Foundation Primer (£28.00) 4. Nars Skin Multi-Action Hydrating Toner (£22.00) 5. It's a 10 Miracle Leave In Conditioner (£15-£20) 6. Perfect Legs Skin Miracle (£36.00)

Unfortunately being a student it's hard for me to splash my cash on such products HOWEVER I have added some of these to my Christmas wish list so IF I'm lucky, my family and boyfriend might spoil me :)

Most of these products can be found on feelunique.com (they seem to have good prices), Joliebox and Amazon!

Hope you like! X
