Summer shades

So today I have finally had the day off work and have had a well deserved day of pampering πŸ’πŸΌ…

First of all I took a trip to the nail salon as my nails were beyond overdue and one had snapped off and it was just all a disaster 😫.


After browsing on Pinterest and getting some ideas I decided to try out the ‘almond’ shape for my nails finished off with a summery pale blue (I know the nail varnish was OPI but I didn’t see what the colour was called)… But I absolutely love the colour as it’s perfect for summer 😍.

After I got my nails done I FINALLY had time to try out one of my new Kylie lipkits so I decided to try out Kylie’s favourite – which is called “Ginger”…


This is the first brown shade of lipstick I’ve ever bought and I decided to buy it because it is more of a reddy-brown than a full on deep shade brown. I have decided that I absolutely love it and will definetly invest in more brown shades in the future!!

When I ordered this shade I was a little nervous as I’ve heard some bad reviews about the darker shades in Kylie’s collection as reviews claim they aren’t evenly pigmented when applied, but I disagree with this as I only used one layer when I applied ginger and it came out perfectly.

So these are my summer shades for the day and I will be uploading more photos of my other Kylie cosmetics products throughout the week!

Nude nails

Hey lovelies! It’s been a while since I’ve done a beauty post but recently I got my nails done as there has been such a fashion craze with acrylic nails due to celebrities such as the Kardashian/Jenner clan, Rihanna and BeyoncΓ©. 


These days there are many different shapes and styles for acrylic nails such as stiletto, ballerina, almond, round, square… You name it there’s a shape for it!


I decided to go for a nude nail in the ballerina style with a rose gold glitter on both my ring fingers… I looked at the bottles in the nail parlour and saw that the nude colour was an Essie colour named “Sand” and the rose gold glitter was an OPI colour called “Rose Gold”. But unfortunately as these are not my colours I can’t take a photo of the bottles or remember the numbers of the colours!


It’s amazing how great something so little like getting your nails done can lift your spirits! So if you’re ever feeling down go to your nearest nail parlour!
