SUPER EASY nail art!

Image
Hellloooo! I'm so excited to show you guys this. 


Here's the finished look!

Paint the half of your nails black diagonally. Use tape if you don't have steady hands!Grab a white nail art polish and make dots, around 8-10. If you don't have a white nail art polish use a toothpick and white nail polish.Where the black polish ends, draw a straight line diagonally in silver nail polish. Again, I used a silver nail art polish.That's it!

How I scrunch my hair! + I got an award!!!

Image
I got an award! From the lovely Holly The Liebster Award is designed to bring well deserved additional recognition to those bloggers with less than 300 followers. If you receive the award you link back to the blogger that nominated you and nominate 3 more blogs. I decided to chose 3 blogs that I discovered recently.. My awards go to:
*Jenny *Grace *Joanna

Moving on to part 2 of the post- scrunching hair!:

Everyone scrunches their hair differently, so I thought I'd share mine with you guys. It's an overnight process and requires styling in the morning, but you don't need to do the overnight part. That's just for more defined curls :)

The Overnight Part #1
It's simple, braid damp hair into 2/3/4 chunky braids before bed. Since I want looser waves, instead of super tight curls (almost like crimps) I do 2 braids.

In The Morning #2
1. If your hair is still slightly damp, great, but if not, just spritz some water.
2. Get your hands on some mousse. Any kind works fine!
3. Bend you…

Creating an Outfit from my Favourite Clothes!

Image
Hey! I've found some pieces of clothing which I really like. I thought I'll make it into an outfit and show you :)
This actually isn't a dress, it's a playsuit :) I hate dresses, they're so annoying!
I wouldn't actually wear these in public... well maybe I would. They're so cool xD  For a less crazy brave look, I would wear these: Aah, that's more like it. <sighs with relief> This clutch is soooo cute- I just hope they're not real feathers :o
For this outfit, I'd probably do my hair really laid back, something like loose waves :) Makeup wise, well, not much. Subtle is key!
Anyway, let me know which clothing item you liked the most. Mine is the clutch!
EDIT: This post previously got deleted, and so did the comments. The post has reappeared but the comments are lost :( Hopefully they'll come back, but new comments WILL show up so please comment! xD

Aussie Hair Products!

Image
Heya!
I've had these three products for a while and I thought that I would review them.
I have:



First I should explain what my hair type is- I DO NOT have frizzy hair, but I do have loads of flyaways. Other than that, my hair is pretty normal well it would depend on what you call normal. It's long (ish) and a bit wavy. OK, enough of my hair... lets start the actual review.

SMELL
I honestly don't get all the hype for the smell. I mean, it's naaaaaaasty! It's sickly sweet- eww. Oh, and all 3 of them smell the same.

HOW THEY MAKES MY HAIR FEEL
Shampoo: Soft.
Conditioner: Softer.
3 Minute Miracle: Softest!

DO THEY DO WHAT THEY CLAIM TO DO
No. I still have flyaways and my normally non-frizzy hair has turned slightly frizzy.

Extra comments:

The shampoo lathers up nicelyThe 3 Minute Miracle does pretty much the same job as a good conditionerI repeat: they do not smell goodHave you tried out any Aussie products? If not, what hair products from any other brand do you recommend?

Barry M Nail Paints Review!

Image
Aah, Barry M Nail Paints. They are awesome! I have them in:

Berry Ice Cream

Mint Green

Turquoise

I also have an Instant Nail Effects in Black, review here
And I have a limited edition glittery navy colour and a limited edition pink.

I don't have too many actually, I used to buy different brands. BUT, now that I've found these, I won't be switching back to any of my more expensive nail polishes which are nowhere near as good as these. These last, without chipping, for a week. That is loooooooong for a nail polish, trust me.

My favourite is Turquoise, it looks gorgeous on my tanned skin and also my friend's pale skin. I'm not sure how it looks on dark skin, but I'm pretty sure it would look good too.

Pros:

Cheap Long lastingBeautiful colours!Cons: Some of the nail paints are really sheer and need 3 coats to get a decent colour.

However, if anyone knows any other good nail polishes, let me know please! I'm a nail polishaholic xD

love,
