Christmas Present: Nike Blazers

Well, this was supposed to be an outfit post but I couldn't get a good enough quality picture of my jumper. Basically it's a dark blue jumper with 3/4 sleeves, it's from Primark and you will probably see it in there. So the pictures are of my bottom half cause I thought it looked pretty cool. I'm all in blue, good job there different shades and I don't look like a large potato!:(

Hope you enjoy my post and look forward to more x

Wreck This Journal: Part 1

Well, this is one of my most used Christmas presents so far. If you haven't already heard by word of mouth of Tumblr, Wreck This Journal does what it says on the 'tin', you basically have to ruin the book, completing the abnormally strange tasks it requires.

My part one shows you some of the 48 tasks I've already completed. I've picked out some of the most, colourful, interesting ones to show you and then maybe you'll be hooked, and you mave have to force or treat yourself into buying one of these babies. It's pretty cool and available in Waterstone's for £8.99 or Amazon for around just 6 pound.

Hope you enjoy my interpretation of 'Wreck This Journal' and I've enticed you into buying one.

Have you already got your journal? If you have, show me! Do you plan on buying one?

Battle of the Nail Varnish Brands #3: No. 7's Stay Perfect

Sorry about the few days break from my blog but I've been busy with school and family, you know things like that. This is only the second time I've actually been on my laptop and I didn't really think about updating my blog (which I admit, I should of) and that sucks.

Sooo, without hesitation, I announce to you the third contender of the war of the polishes... No. 7 Stay Perfect in the shade Blackberry(only remembered this as my sister broke hers during the week). The colour I've had applied to my nails has been this over the past week. It's a slightly shimmery but elegant deep purple and can be used over the top of other polishes glamming a black up. This is my honest review as i have never tried a No. 7 product in my life.
Applicator? Well, it's small, fat and stubby. I'm not really keen as it clogs the nail varnish on the brush, making it un-smooth.
Application? Well that's not really great either. If the applicator is crappy, then it is quite obvious that the application is going to similar or the same. The polish itself it pretty thick and applies really thick, even if you wipe the excess off, it drips before you can get it onto the nails.
Chip Resistant? Certainly. I am in love with how long the varnish still looks fresh on your nails for. No chipping, no oldness and no scratching. I had it on for 10 days and it still looked fresh, but I had no choice but to remove the colour as it went onto my nails all clumpy.

Removal? It wasn't awful, but it wasn't great, just pretty average really. The only problem is because the polish is really clumpy, you have to apply more nail polish remover onto the cotton pad to get it off. Another point, because it's really dark and pigmented, you use plenty of cotton pads and I went through 7 just to get it off with no staining or leftovers.
Overall- This is a really nice polish. The only problem is the applicator means the polish is applied really thick and clumpy. I'm not sure about the colour being wintery, although I suppose it is being a deep, warm purple, getting everyone in the Christmas spirit. I would personally wear this with a light outfit, that included pastel colours, just to give your nails that boldness.

What winter polishes do you own? Are you excited for Christmas? x

Battle of the Nail Varnish Brands #2: Avon's Nailwear Pro+

Well, its that time again. More of the nail varnish wars! This time I'm giving you the points on Avon's Nailwear Pro+, the shade being Cosmic Blue, which sounds like some outer-spacey type colour polish. It sounds adventurous, but it's just a fancy name for metallic deep blue, which sounds, I must admit, boring. So here we are at day 2 of battles.

Avon Nailwear Pro+ in Cosmic Blue
I like these square bottles, seems like the square represents more quality in the varnish. The photo doesn't do the colour any justice but it is a metallic shade and obviously from Avon, as you can see.
Applicator? Well, this ones just normal, your average sized applicator. The only problem is the fact that the varnish is so liquified, that it comes straight of the applicator, so wiping at the nozzle of the bottle is a must.

Application? Personally, this ones not the best with me. You need 3/4 coats on your nails just for it to look un-see through and very glossy. I'm not to keen on glossy finishes on the nails and this is exactly that, a glossy finish. Its very leaky and even the slightest amount too much on the applicator and it drips into the side of your nails, the place where it's impossible to get the varnish off.
Chip resistant? That is one very good point about this. I had it on for 3 days, not even one small chip from the nails, it still looked fresh and glossy.
Removal? Quite impossible as I applied 4 coats for the polish to look opaque, and with the colour being dark, it's more pigmented and hard to get off anyways. It took a lot of nail polish remover and a lot of cotton pads. 1= easy, 4 coats=impossible.
I'm not too sure what my final impression is on this varnish. I really like the colour and how subtle the metallic is in the shade. I don't really know, I suppose this varnish is to dress up an outfit, it's seems a bit like an accessory, like wearing bracelets or necklaces, which really changes an outfit. Suppose you have your LBD, wearing this metallic shade will change the look, and might ultimately decide what accessories you actually wear. This shade could make you look cheap and unclassy, or can decide your outfit, make you look more formal and elegant. I'm in two minds, I'm not too sure of the finish and how the polish looks, although I really do like the colour.

Battle of the Nail Varnish Brands: 17's Lasting Fix

The next five days, including this one, I have tested 4 of what I think the main brands are in Nail Varnish/Polish currently. I have used them, looking for the quality of the applicator, the application, the varnishes chip resistance and the removal of the polish and my overall comment. One each day until I'm done. Apologies for the state of my nails but I shall commence! The title gives it away as today I'm giving you my opinion on the brand of 17's Nail Polish.

17's Lasting Fix in Mint Choc Chip
When I started my collection of nail varnishes, which wasn't too long ago, 6 months maybe, this is the first one I bought, along with another one of their Lasting Fix range, which was again Lasting Fix but in Orange Soda.
Applicator? It's perfect for the size of bottle it comes in. Its normal sized but the nail polish tends to drip off an awful lot.
Application? The applicator is really smooth and so there is no problem in applying it to your nails, but with the applicator being small, it takes 4 strokes before covering your nail, so it takes a while if you want an opaque look on your nails.
Chip Resistant? No way! Within 24 hours of applying this product to my nails, its started to look old and started chipping. I recovered the chips in my nails, giving the varnish another go, and within 2 days I had large chips out of the polish, which people actually noticed. I recommend this for a one time wear, like when you are going out for a meal, or a night out when you aren't bothered about your nails the morning after.
Removal? Pretty easy. Glides off as you applied it, one wipe with a cotton pad with a dab of nail polish remover on and your nails are clean. Getting it of your skin if you make a mistake is pretty simple too, dab of  polish remover and its off, just like that.
Overall: This polish is sold in a range of more formal colours, more like nail colours for nights out, meals out and formal occasions and meetings because they chip so easily. I love this polish and I was impressed considering the price I paid for it. I like the colours and the bottle design is really simple and attracts you as it's not very tacky and chavy looking, attracting a wide range of people including me. Like I said the only downfall is how easily the polish chips. You can buy the polish and many other products from 17 in Boots. Just now, posting this, I have literally discovered the two polishes I bought are part of the Candy Collection in Boots, £2.99 each.
What 17 products have you bought? Are you disappointed or impressed? Tell me what you think!
Hope you found this helpful lovelys x

Primarni: New shoes

Tuesday it was! Tuesday I bought these amazing peach coloured babies.

I don't have much to say at all apart from they are super comfy but I advise you to wear socks all the time to stop them rubbing and giving you blisters. If you can't see the heel, the toe cap and the lace section are a shiny material in the peach colour and the rest is a peachy colour but its a strange, soft material, almost like suede but even smoother if you get me. There like ankle plimsolls if you get me. They were only £8 and an absolute bargain! Hoping they last ages 'cause I'm in love with these shoes that 90% of people don't like. Oh, and the laces are ribbon so I suggest you buying a new pair of laces just as a back up.

Second are the simplest pair of black suede ankle boots with a small heel, nothing I'm in complete love with but there totally cute, and for winter school shoes, there the nicest pair of boots I've had. I'm not sure of the price and there big fitting, so I advise a size smaller.

So there we go, a high recommendation to buy ankle boots from Primark cause the majority are amazing. Sorry the photos of the black boots are slightly shitty, I was in a rush before the cinemas:)
Enjoy cuties x

Should be Skyrise, not Skyfall: Skyfall Review

So as you have probably read in my previous post, I went to see Skyfall last night, which is a James Bond film for a few dummies who haven't seen the advert. I'll give you an opinion which is in brainy words a review on my blog of what I think of the film.

Throughout the film, I only checked the time once and that's because I received a text, because it was that action packed. The attraction is that constant 'what's going on, what's going on?' But not the sort where you miss a scene and you can't catch up.

In my opinion, Daniel Craig is my favourite Bond and his character role should carry on throughout the infinite films to come but we all know that he will finish off in the next Skyfall movie. I think Bond will always have to be British, and I'll never watch it if the role is given to an American. Judi Dench is iconic to the Bond films, (sorry to spoilt it, don't read ahead if you don't want to know what happened) and the way she dies is so peaceful, right at the end, in 007's arms in a chapel. Her role in the Bond films is so wonderful and the way she goes out isn't her style but completely fine because she's just great.

The stunts look completely realistic and Daniel Craig is made to look like a ninja the way he defeats does by fighting them off. I love the special effects; the explosions, the shooting and the fighting.

10/10 for this, I am waiting for the next already!
Photos: 2 are of my poxy piece of paper they call a ticket and a empty coke on top of the toilet roll holder

Enjoy pretty ones x

What a Halloween I've had!

My Halloween's been both good and a bit of bad, both non-Halloween related and probably the opposite end of the scales. If this doesn't make sense, I wouldn't worry because I'm posting this as its written and it's like 25 past 10 at night.

Shall I tell you the good or the bad first? Take a guess.

Well as you again (for the millionth tim) probably don't know, my mam and dad have been split since I was born and I spend Wednesday and Saturdays at my dads or cousins with my dad, so today I was in town with him and my two cousins. Get to the end, I went to see the new James Bond film Skyfall with my mam's boyfriend and after this i'll put a review on but the film was freakin' amazing! Great film and a great actor.

After I got out the pictures I got a text saying Liverpool are losing to Swansea 1-0. I then got home after showing my face at a family Halloween party, getting another text saying the full time score was 3-1 to Swansea. Altogether my day was equalled out and pretty average.

Nows the time to admit, now I'm 15 and not 5, I don't enjoy Halloween, I don't enjoy giving my sweets out to other kids and I don't enjoy the theme in all honesty. I know I sound miserable but answering the door to 5/6 year olds singing pooey rhymes to get sweets off me. They don't get any of my sweets cause I'm not in and I live on the corner so alls a bonus, and if I do get the annoying little shitheads at my door, I ignore them and close my blinds to show I'm an ignorant twat:)

Anyways I'm tired, your probably tired so ill let you browse at the pictures I took... Oops maybe there is none.

Hah cya later lovelies x

Imperfect: Glitter nails

Well, I tried. But I didn't have any nail art pens so I just did nails with the colours Halloween themed.

I firstly painted them with Barry M Grey(293), applying a base coat underneath for obvious reasons, making sure they were covered with two coats in case they looked tacky and thin. Even though I used a glitter polish (Barry M Glitter Red, 150), I still applied it while it was drying so I got a thorough glitter coat on my nails. As you can see I've tried different patterns on a few nails, which I failed at:( after the glitter and the grey polish had completely dry, I then applied a top coat to keep the varnish chip-free for a few days.

Tomorrow will probably be an un-Halloweeny outfit post as I'm going to see Skyfall with my Mam's boyfriend at Cineworld.

More towards Christmas, there will more than likely be a week or two of festive posts which will be pretty cool!

Have fun tomorrow lovelies x
