DIY NAILCALS




I have been following DIY Nails on Twitter for a while and after seeing all the gorgeous nails they tweet I decided to go check out their website and see what they were about. DIY Nails sell a whole range of Nailcals that are water-activated temporary tattoos which can be used both on the nail and skin. I have tried nail tattoos once before and found them to be a great way to quickly change up my nails without too much fuss. The tattoos come on one sheet with up to 100 Nailcals, all different sizes which fit every nail shape. I picked up the Mehndi foil pack which retail for £6.

The Nailcals were easy to apply, although I do have to hold my hands up though and say I did apply these the wrong way *note to self, read instructions* hence why they turned out silver and not gold, oops. Still, I was happy with the finished result. Once on the nail I left it a couple of seconds and then straight away applied my Seche Vite top coat to seal it down. The Nailcals themselves are super thin so unlike nail wraps and nail stickers if you rub your finger over the nail you cannot feel them. Used on acrylics, gels or polish they work with all nail systems. The Nailcals come in black & white, colour and foil, its hard not to be spoilt for choice. I actually spied some cat ones that I now have my eyes on *crazy cat lady alert*.


Have you tried DIY Nailcals?

MAY FAVOURITES 2015


 For today's post I wanted to give you another little insight into some things that I enjoyed through out May. I cant believe we are now into June, even though it does sometimes still feel like January *grabs hot water bottle*.  

Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner - £26.00

I love Clarins for skincare and this particular toner by them has been a favourite of mine this month. This exfoliating toner is super gentle on my skin and does what an exfoliator does but without the abrasiveness or need to scrub. I have been using this once a week, usually the night before I tan as I find it helps to get rid of any dry or dead skin. 

Simple Kind To Skin Deep Cleansing Face Mask - £3.99

I decided to give this mask a go after hearing Lisa Eldridge talk about it in one of her videos. I have been using this the day after tanning as some tans have been leaving my face feeling dry, this has been great for giving my skin a moisture boost and getting rid of that tight feeling. 

Imperial Leather Grapefruit & Pomegranate Shower Cream  

I love these kind of scents come Spring/Summer. This Grapefruit Shower Cream by Imperial Leather smells good enough to drink. I love using this after the gym as it leaves my skin feeling super clean and fresh.

Bourjois Healthy Mix Eclat Concealer - £7.99

After running out of my Collection 2000 Lasting perfection I was on the hunt for a new everyday concealer. Remembering how much I enjoyed using the Healthy Mix Concealer I decided to go back to it. The concealer itself is quite thick but I find it does not lay heavy, it gives me great coverage on any blemishes or dark circles. 

The Body Shop Satsuma Body Butter - £13.00

You can't beat the Body Shop Body Butters, they last for ages. Whenever I pop into the shop I always come out with a load of testers on the back of my hand as they all smell too good. This Satsuma one smells amazing. I have been using this on a night time as I like to let it sink in overnight.

Twinings Salted Caramel Green Tea

I have been on the hunt for this tea for ages and managed to finally find it in Tesco's. I love anything Salted Caramel and wanted to know what this would taste like. Surprisingly I really liked it, the caramel taste helps to take away the bitterness that Green Tea can sometimes have. I am now on the hunt to try the Cherry Bakewell one. 

The Theory Of Everything

Hands down one of my favourite films of this year. I didn't get chance to see this at the Cinema so picked this up on DVD when it was released last month. Just a little warning, you might want to stock up on the Kleenex before watching this.

What have you enjoyed in May ?
