While some years I make it out to Glasgow Green to watch the firework display for Guy Fawkes night, this year I’m staying in to take care of my poor dog who’s absolutely terrified of them. Not to worry, I’m sure I’ll enjoy watching a few from my window but I thought, why not pick out a lovely firework inspired glitter nail shade for the occasion? While I haven’t settled on a shade quite yet, I have narrowed it down to 3 categories to choose from so here are my choices.
For those of you who may be a little afraid to wear bold reds, if there’s ever a time to experiment it’s now. As Halloween is just around the corner, it’s time to break out of your comfort zone and try something new makeup wise. I think red is such a versatile colour which can look both classic and daring at the same time. Whether you’re planning on channeling Marilyn Monroe or a scary vampire, choosing the right red is the perfect place to start.
You all know my love for some dark glitter nail polishes so imagine how excited I was when Models Own came out with their own take on the trend with their Models Own Velvet Goth Collection. I’ll admit, I’m a little late to try them but I’ve finally got my hands on them at last. I picked up 2 shades from the collection to try with my boots advantage card points (free nail polish woo!) including the shades Absinthe (dark green) and Valerian (navy blue). Here’s what I think of them.
As much as I’ve loved wearing pastels and bright neons this summer, I can’t wait to get back into wearing my dark glitter nail polishes. I think they look amazing teamed up with a smokey eye and the glitter aspect makes it much easier to pull off a dark shade without looking too gothic. Here are some of my favourites and coincidentally, they’re all cruelty free!
It’s less than a month till our graduation and once I finally found my graduation dress at Topshop, I couldn’t help but add a few makeup pieces in my shopping basket. It would be rude not to! I decided to try not to go too crazy and only pick up two items. The latest addition to their lipstick range, the Lip Bullets and a lovely complimentary coral nail polish.
