NOTD- OPI Lincoln Park After Dark DUPE!

Image
Hi dolls!

I have posted about this before but I've found a dupe for OPI's very famous Lincoln Park After Dark! But this time I'm going to be actually showing you the comparision- see for yourself! =]

OPI's Lincoln Park After Dark
Rimmel's Deliciously Dark To be honest it does really depend on the picture, when it's taken in natural light, both colours look lighter (like a very dark plum). However when there's no light my nails look BLACK. Seriously, these polishes are not for the faint hearted!!

Here's a pic of my nails (Rimmel's Deliciously Dark) taken in artificial light: As you can see, in artificial light it's a lot lighter (more wearable).


Is it just me that thinks that nail polish colours such as black aren't very wearable?

How To Get Clear, Flawless Skin

Image
Everyone wants gorgeous, clear, flawless skin. Unfortunately, not all of us are born with it, so I've got 5 tips to help you achieve better skin.

Wash your hair away from your face. If you wash your hair towards your face, all the nasty oil, dirt and bacteria will land straight on your face!You should be washing your face twice a day anyway, but it is essential that you wash your face at night. This is because your skin cells renew at night. You do not want them to renew when your face is dirty.Avoid touching your face at all! This is important. You do not want to transfer bacteria from other sources onto your face and potentially lead to a breakout.Change your pillowcases regularly. This is so the oil/dirt/products from your hair will not get on your face.Exfoliate your face once in a while to remove dead skin cells. Do not over exfoliate your face, as this is damaging to the skin.Get ready to have gorgeous skin!


Some Really Pretty Eyeshadows!

Hey there! Gosh it's been ages hasn't it!

The other day I received some eyeshadows from Frontcover Cosmetics. I got 4 eyeshadows and a compact, which is £15- quite reasonable actually! You just put the eyeshadows you choose in the compact and wahla, your own custom made palette!

I chose (l-r) Azimuth, Twinkling Gold, Baked Bronze and Bougainvillea. All really pretty shades!

Here's a picture of the palette and its contents (quite small but fits all 4 of the eyeshadows snugly)

It comes with an actual eyeshadow brush rather than those rubbish sponge tip applicators.Yay! It's double sided, one side is for lid colour and the other is for crease colour (well that's what I use it for anyway!) There's a mirror too, very handy.

Here are swatches of the four shades (l-r): Azimuth, Twinkling Gold, Baked Bronze and Bougainvillea.

I have to say that they do need a few layers to reach their full potential, but those few extra minutes can make a big difference in the vibrancy o…

NOTD- at the salon!

Hello everyone.

The other day, I got my nails done professionally. I chose a really bright red colour which is actually the first time I've ever worn that sort of colour (never worn red or orange before).

What do you think? I personally quite like it.

However, I do not think that there was much point getting my nails done at the salon, it's a bit of a waste of money when I can probably do the same job at home.

OPI Lincoln Park After Dark dupe!

Hiya!

I've been eyeing up one of OPI's most famous nail polishes for a while now- Lincoln Park After Dark. Here's a pic of it:
But come on, it's quite expensive for a nail polish. So I was really excited when I saw the nail polish below- Rimmel's Deliciously Dark! It's so much cheaper and is practically the same colour, don't you think?
I can't do swatches because I don't own the OPI one, but from the looks of things they look pretty much alike! I also checked on the internet and it seems like the Rimmel one is an exact dupe.
Question of the day: What's your favourite nail polish colour?  Comment below with your answers, I'd love to hear what colours you like to wear on your nails xD
