My name is Jo I am in my 20s and officially a makeup beauty Addict. I have always loved playing with makeup. However It was at the beginning of this year that I finally discovered my passion. I first got into makeup in a big way when I searched for something on Youtube. I typed in the search and found all these girls talking about and experimenting with makeup. From that day on I was hooked. I have made a couple of really good friends on youtube who encouraged me to start blogging. So as I am unable to make videos myself here I am. It's early days but I have some interesting things to come. If you have anything to say about any of my posts please feel free to leave a comment. Thanks Jo x

Random collective Purchases + LOTD using UDBOS2

I bought a view random things over a period of time recently. I didnt think they would make a decent blogpost individually so I decided to combine them all into one post.

The 1st thing I got is the Sleek Sunset Palette.

I bought this Palette from a very nice beauty blogger called Jasmine. This is my second Sleek Palette and I love it. Thankyou Jasmine.

Next I purchased YSL Touche Eclat Radient Touch.

I absolutely love this for undereye concealing. However it's very expensive so if you don't want to spend the money I will be doing a comparison blog between this and another concealer....More on that at a later date :).

The final Misc item I purchased recently was something I have wanted for SO SO LONG!!!! The URBAN DECAY BOOK OF SHADOWS VOLUME 2!!!!!

As you can see from the picture it comes with 16 shadows, 2 of the mini 24/7 Glide on Eye Pencils in Zero and Bourbon and a mini Primer Potion.

Becky bought it a while ago and has shown it to me quite a few times on blogtv. I was going to wait til after christmas to get it but Becky recommended I get it ASAP because after christmas it's only available while stocks last. (Going by a couple of people on twitter who did wait til after xmas it's already sold out...glad I got it when I did...thanks Becky :)

I have had quite a few plays with this palette and I LOVE IT!!!! I used it today for the 1st time properly and I created this very neutral look. (I knew the 1st picture isn't the best but oh well...Oh and ignore the earphone lol.)

For this look I used the Primer Potion all over the lid as a base.Sellout, YDK, Mushroom and Twice Baked for the shadows. I used the liner in Bourbon on the upper and lower lashlines and in the waterline. For my mascara I used my Rimmel Sexy Curves.
I will probably do this look a couple more times then do a written tutorial on it at a later date.
Well I think thats it for my Misc Purchases. I will be doing a post on some of my xmas pressies soon.
I was hoping to go shopping yesterday but car wouldn't start....Dad came to fix it today but couldn't so I probably won't be able to go for a few days now :(. I will do another purchases post when i get to go.
Quick question, I would love to get some more of the Lush xmas goodies. Do you think they will have plenty of stock to last for a while? Or should I order the things i want online to be safe and just hope I like the smells etc? Any thoughts let me know in the comments.

ELF Makeup Pictures

I know what you are all probably thinking...'Jo has been a major blog slacker lately.' Sorry about that.

I have been meaning to do so many posts recently. Mainly Purchases that I made way before Christmas, I just never got round to doing it. So since christmas has now been and gone and I wanted to show you some of the things I recieved.

These next few posts are mainly going to be pictures. I will write in more detail about the products eventually but for now this will have to do :).

First things first the thing that has probably been waiting the longest ELF.

I bought some of these things to do comparisons between elf and expensive brands. You will hear more about that in the future.

I decided to do a ‘Collective Purchases’ series as I have spent WAY too much money lately.

Collective Purchase basically means random things that I have bought over a period of time. So bear in mind that I didn’t purchase everything included in the the next couple of posts in one day.

I’ve ordered from ELF (post will come asap) and obviously Mac. I also got a few other random things that you will hear about sometime in the future. (This includes something VERY exciting that I have wanted for AGES.)

In this post I will be showing you the 2nd lot of Mac Holiday collection purchases.

I’m only going to run through everything I bought in this post as I have rambled on way too much already. I will do separate posts on things that I feel I need to give further information on.
If you are a keen reader of my blog you will have seen my last Mac holiday collection post. I had a very long list of things I wanted. I originally I decided I didn’t want to spend too much money so I narrowed it down to just a few things.

When I received the 1st order there was a number of things I was kicking myself for not. However I was determined that I had spent enough.

This was until I ran out of Mac makeup remover wipes!!

I decided as I was ordering from Mac anyway I might as well get a couple more things from the collection. I’m also going to skip on the new collection Baroque Boudoir. (This is the collection with very posh looking packaging and it’s VERY expensive.)

Anyway back to the Holiday collection, There are still some things that I would’ve liked to get
but I decided I would leave the rest. (Yes I know 2 orders and I still didn’t get everything I wanted..)

I ended up getting the Devil May Care eye shadow Palette and the other 2 pigment vial sets.

I especially think the Pigment sets are a very good value for money at £27.50 each. I have all 3 from this collection and I will definitely buy the pigment sets again next year (if Mac sell them then..)

I thought I had taken a photo of the second set open..Obviously not...Oh well it basically looks the same apart from a different colour base to the box :)....I wish I had got at least 1 of the lip gloss sets, but never mind.

I think that is all I have to say for now. I will do another post at a later date and go into more detail if you want me to.

Hope you enjoyed. :) x

Quick update

Sorry to all my followers that I haven't posted here for AGES.

Just wanted to give you a little update so you know I haven't forgotten about my blog. I have been feeling guilty that I havent posted.

I do have an excuse though so I hope you won't mind too much :).

Firstly I wanted to wait until I had recieved all the things I was waiting for in the post (they have now arrived)

Secondly since all the parcels arrived I have been quite ill.

I think I am on the mend now...However I have said that about 4 times this week so who knows lol.

I know this is a very short and pathetic attempt at a post.

Hopefully I will be able to do 2 or 3 posts in quick succession soon. I have taken photos of everything I have ordered recently. Including one thing that I have wanted for AGES...very exciting hehe.

My boyfriend is coming to see me for a week on wednesday so don't be surprised if you don't hear anything from me on here until after he's gone.

Okay I think thats about it for my (cough pathetic cough) update lol.

I will get back into the swing of things soon.

OH before I forget I wanted to say a big THANKYOU to my THIRTY followers. I hope you're all enjoying my posts. Feel free to leave comments.

Mac Holiday Collection

As some of you may be aware I put myself on ‘Project No buy’ recently. I decided I was spending way too much on makeup and beauty products. I thought as Christmas is on the way I had better save some money to spend on presents.

I was chatting to a friend of mine about it, (he always laughs at me because of the amount I spend) and needless to say he didn’t think I would last more than a week doing this, so I was determined to prove him wrong lol.
He said he would give me 4 weeks before I bought anything, but he didn’t think I could do it. Much to his surprise I did the 4 weeks...pretty easily actually. (Yes he was very impressed lol.)
As I wasn’t having big withdrawal symptoms I decided to carry on to see how much longer I could last, just for my own curiosity and to save more money. I think it must’ve been a good couple of months before I really started wanting to go shopping.
At this point I think my friend was getting a bit concerned lol...He even said once ‘I think you should buy makeup now.’ As you can imagine I found this very amusing. However I was determined to keep going.
I knew when I was breaking because I started to look at the Superdrug, Boots, MAC, Urban Decay websites a lot more regularly.
Eventually I got back to a reasonable amount of money in my ‘Spending Account’ just as the Mac Holiday collections came out. I knew there was quite a lot that I wanted from these specific collections so I decided this would be a good time to allow myself a ‘little’ spend up.
I ended up spending more than I would normally for the amount of products I bought, this is because the holiday collections are more expensive because it has a lot of kits and palettes...However this also means you are getting a lot for your money.)

It was for this reason that I decided to only get 4 of the things I wanted. (It was still a lot of money though. :( ) I may ask for some of the other things for Christmas.
In this Post I am only going to tell you what I got from the collections. I will do more posts in the future and tell you more about the individual items.
I got 1 of the eye shadow Palettes. There are 4 of these in the collection. They each come with 6 eye shadows and a Mini 213 brush.

I was finding it really difficult to choose which one I wanted as I would’ve quite happily bought all 4 if I could afford to do so. I ended up choosing The Sorceress Palette.
I also got 1 of the 2 lip bags and 1 of the 2 eye bags, again I would’ve loved both of each but in the hope of saving money I had to choose.
Each of the lip bags come with a lipstick, Dazzle Glass and Lip Pencil. These come with a silver coloured reflective bag with pink lining. These Bags are very handy because surprisingly you can fit a lot in them (this is the same with the eye bags but they have blue lining...well the 1 I have does.
I decided to go with the darker 1 which is called the ‘House of Mirth Deep Lip Bag.’ The other one was a very nice pink nude set. I would’ve bought this but I decided I have quite a few nude colours so I thought I would go for something a bit different.
The eye bags include a mini Zoom Lash Mascara a Full size Fluid Line with mini eyeliner brush and a Full Size Pigment.
I really struggled to choose which of the Eye bags I wanted. I wanted to try the Black Track fluidline which came in 1 of the bags and the other bag had the other thing I wanted... a full size Melon Pigment. (I have the sample and love it.)
In the end I decided to go with the one that had Black Track. I may be asking for Melon Pigment for Christmas.

The Final thing I bought was one of the three Pigment vial sets from the Mischief Makers Collection. As with the other things I am wishing I had bought the other 2 Pigment sets now but oh well.

I got the one in ‘Cool Capers': This set included 4 Pigments and 1 glitter:

The Glitter is called Transparent Teal
The 4 Pigments included were Fuchsia, Kitchmas, Deep Blue Green and finally Grape,

Well those are my MAC holiday collection purchases, I hope you liked it and I will update this post if I decide to get more.

Thanks for Reading Hope you like the post and keep a look out for some more in depth reviews of the individual items in the future

Very short Very simple FOTD: Golden Browns

In this look I am sporting a very nice and yet very simple and more importantly very Quick Golden Brown look.
For this look I covered my entire eyelid in barestudy paintpot. Then over this I applied my NYX Jumbo Pencil in French Fries.
In this case I used the Paintpot to hold the Nyx Pencil in place and stop it creasing throughout the day.
The NYX website shows this colour as a red. But it is actually a lovely gold brown colour
I just used my finger to blend both of these individually.
Then I applied Mac's Satin Taupe Eyeshadow over the entire lid.
I patted this on at first because this gives the most vibrancy. Once I had packed on enough colour i blended it out over lid and into the crease.
I then applied my mascara.
I think I might've applied a little bit of eyeliner to my lower lashline and waterline aswell, but to be honest I can't quite remember lol.
Thats the completed Golden Brown look, It is perfect for everyday wear as it is neutral, however you can also wear it on a night out.
Sorry this is such a short post.
Hope you enjoyed all comments welcome. :)

Golden Greens

Here is a List of the products I used:

· Mac Paint Pot in Barestudy
· NYX Jumbo Pencil in Black Bean
· Mac Eye Shadow in Juxt
· Mac Eye Shadow in Rated R
· Mac Eye Shadow in One Off
· Mac Eye Shadow in Humid
· Mac 239 Brush
· Mac 224 + 226 to blend

Firstly I applied my Mac Paint Pot in Barestudy all over my lid
As you can probably tell by now this is my most used Paint Pot. That is because it is a really nice skin toned colour with a bit of shimmer that works well under any colour eye shadow. There is another one called Painterly which I think is very similar to Barestudy without the shimmer.
Some people say paint pots crease on them. If this is the case for you then I know 'Urban Decay Primer Potion' is good or you could try 'Too Faced Shadow Insurance'. I personally don’t have this problem so the Paint Pot on its own is fine for me.
I have tried Urban Decay Primer Potion and it was great but the packaging is such a pain. However that’s a whole other review that I may or may not do in the future.
Then over the top of Barestudy I applied My NYX Jumbo Pencil in Black Bean
I use my jumbo pencils as a base for my eye shadows and find it works really well. However I do find that without the paint pot they do tend to crease. So I always apply a paint pot first.
Surprisingly I have to say my favourite and most used Jumbo Pencil Has to be Black Bean. It really makes the shadows standout. This is a look I am loving at the moment.
Over Black Bean I applied Mac’s eye shadow in Juxt
This was one of the 1st Mac eye shadows I bought.
It is a very nice light Green with a Satin finish. This means (if I’m understanding it correctly,) that it has the colour payoff of a Matte shadow with a small amount of shimmer.
Mac describes it as a ‘Bright Green with Gold shimmer.’ By using the black base first it really makes the Juxt appear a lot more vivid.
Then I applied Mac’s Rated R
I applied this directly to the middle of the lid to work as a highlight and give depth to the look. I blended it out so it didn’t look too messy.
I was very hesitant when buying this shadow as. It is a very bright yellow green so I didn’t think it would suit me. However it seems to work really well with my brown eyes. It has been compared colourwise quite bit with Mac’s Bitter eye shadow although the finish is different.
Rated R has a Starflash finish.
Starflash was a Limited Edition finish which is very soft. In my opinion Star flash shadows are most comparable to Veluxe Pearl Shadows. They are both soft, almost silky feeling to the touch and they go on so easily.
Next I applied another Mac Starflash Shadow in One Off
I applied this to the outer corner and blended into the crease. I have read some reviews on this colour and people say it is comparable to Humid and Swimming. I would say that it’s definitely lighter than humid. Unfortunately I can’t tell you if it compares to swimming as I unfortunately don’t own it.
The final eye shadow I used is Humid
I applied this to my crease to give the look a bit of depth. I feel this worked well with all the other greens I used in the look.
Humid has a frost finish which means it has a kind of shimmer / sheen to it. I think it makes a very nice crease colour for this kind of look. Sometimes I find black can be a bit harsh so I much prefer to use a darker version of the main colour. This still gives it the smokey effect that you want but it is just that little bit softer.
Finally I applied my Diorshow mascara sample.
You can use any mascara you choose. You can also add liner if you wish. I just thought it was dramatic enough without liner for me.
Well that’s the completed look. I hope you like it. Let me know how you get on if you decide to try it.

More posts to come soon :)

Mac Eyeshadow Palettes As of Now (Neutrals) + Favourite eyeshadow

This is the first of 3 posts (until I need to get more palettes) showing my Mac eyeshadows.

If you want me to go into more detail about the shadows in general or even a specific colour then let me know.

I depotted them as I thought it would be a good way to save storage space. I was reluctant to do this originally as I thought it was a lot of hassle and didn't really see the point.

However since I joined the depotting bandwagon I have discovered how much easier it is to do makeup. Instead of having to look for a number individual puts, all I have to do now is decide what colour theme I want, grab the relevent Palette and in there should be all the shadows you need. (Of course this is assuming the look would be using all mac shadows.)

At the moment my Palettes aren't full. I will do an updated version of this series when needed.

For those of you that aren't familiar with Mac Eyeshadows there are several different finishes. This means that they have different textures. This may give a different to the look to the shadow, the pigmentation and in some cases even the way the shadow applies to the lid. I have added the finishes for each of the shadows in brackets next to the shadow names.

I will do another post showing 1 of each of the different shadow finishes and tell you a bit about them then, otherwise this post will be very long.

Now on to the 1st Palette I have chosen.


As you can see I have 8 Neutral Mac shadows, Plust 2 or 3 that came in a quad that I haven't yet depotted. (You will see these in a later post.)

Top Row L-R
Glamour Check (Starflash was LE) Satin Taupe (Frost)

Middle Row L-R
Tempting (Lustre) Woodwinked (Veluxe Pearl) Smoke and Diamonds (Starflash was LE)

Bottom Row L-R
All That Glitters (Veluxe Pearl) Sable (Frost) Swiss Chocolate (Matte)

My Favourite eyeshadow in the set has to be Woodwinked. I love the finish and the colour is very pretty. I watched a lot of youtube videos before getting this eyeshadow. I was curious because everyone was saying on camera it didnt look very pretty and in real life it was so much nicer and every1 needed to get it.

I decided to go and have a look even though I wasnt expecting to see anything that I hadnt seen from the videos. Much to my surprise everyone was right. The pictures and videos didn't do it justice at all! This is a beautiful colour and a MUST HAVE in everyones collection.

If you see a picture of this and decide its not for you at least go and have a look at it in store before you decide. On the other hand if you already own this shadow I would love to hear what you think.

Going by my collection of Neutrals are there any that you own that you think I should have? Preferably nothing to similar to ones I already have.

Thanks in advance and I hope you enjoyed :)

Swap with Sirvinya :)

A while ago I bought a Gosh Nail Polish in the colour Purple Heart.

In the shop it looked like a lovely deep purple colour, on the way home I realised it had a green iridescence, this made it very interesting as I thought it would be a very unique colour. I couldn’t wait to try it when I got home.

Much to my disappointment when I finally did get home I looked at it again, the lovely deep purple with green I had seen in the shop had GONE!! It was now a dark BLACK nail polish with Purple and Green iridescence. I couldn’t understand how it looked so pretty in the shop. I genuinely thought I had picked up the wrong colour. Nonetheless I thought I would try it in the hope that I was going to be pleasantly surprised. I put it on a couple of my nails...and as I expected it looked HORRIBLE on me.

Soon after I bought this nail polish I was chatting to my friend Becky (Aka Sirvinya) on blogtv. I told her about this little mistake and she said that she had wanted it for ages and it was always sold out. As I knew I was NEVER going to wear it I offered to send it to her along with a few extra bits.

There is an Excellent blogpost at so go and check it out if you want to hear her thoughts and see the other things I sent her. Just look for the post titled 'Swap with Jo.' :) Sorry there is no link. For some reason Blogger won't let it work. So you will have to just copy and paste and search for the post. Sorry :(.

In return Becky offered to get me something when she went to London. ... A SLEEK PALETTE!!!!

I have wanted this particular item ever since I started watching YouTube I have not been able to get my hands on one of these even though these are sold in a lot of Superdrug stores.

I was very excited when the parcel arrived. It had a very cute sticker on the back with her name and address. She also had a business card inside with a little note on the back saying she hoped I liked the goodies.
I have played with the pallete a few times. I have come up with quite a few lovely looks with it so needless to say I absolutely LOVE IT. I won’t say too much about it here though because I am planning on doing a proper review on it soon.

I also mentioned to Becky that I had quite a lot of empty MAC eye shadow pots.

Now, you may or may not know that you can depot your mac eyeshadows into a palette and return the empty pots for them to recycle. If you do this and take back 6 ‘Empties’ you can exchange them for a free lipstick.

As I have never done this before because I don’t live near a Mac store or counter I had quite a few pots piling up in my makeup collection. Becky was kind enough to exchange these for me.

It turned out I had 27 pots, this was enough for 4 lipsticks. There were 3 extra pots which she sent back to me to go towards anymore that I may get in the future.

I gave Becky a list of about 10 Lipsticks that I liked just in case they didn’t have one. Apparently Becky gave the list to the Makeup Artist at MAC and told them to pick. The ones I received were Creme D’nude, Up The Amp, Hue, and Dubonnet. I am very pleased as I was secretly hoping I would get 3 out of 4 of these colours. I will also do separate posts on these. Whether I decide to do just these or combine it with my other lipsticks I don’t know yet. Let me know if you have any preference. Here are the colours I recieved.

I am not sure if this was planned but 2 of the lipsticks are very bold and the other 2 are very nude. This worked out very well.
Becky Also sent me a couple of Barrym Dazzle Dusts as extras.
I received Number 90 Pearly Mauve. I love to apply this wet as it really shows the pearliness. I think this is my favourite out of the 2...It’s Beautiful.

The other Dazzle Dust I got was Number 93 Block Blue. This appears to be a Matte Blue. It is also nice applied wet as it really shows the vibrancy of the colour. Both Dazzle Dusts are very pretty.
As with the lipsticks I will do a post on these but I will be combining them with the rest of my Dazzle Dust collection. I have 8 now.

I would just like to end this post by saying a very big Thankyou to you Becky. This was my 1st experience with swapping. It was very enjoyable and there is not one thing that I received that I don’t like.

I hope we can do it again sometime Becky...maybe...if you want ...hehe.

Thanks again.

Nailene Review Part 3


The 1st of the 2 packs is called ‘So Natural.’

This kit includes 36 Nails in 18 different sizes and Nail Glue. (Each nail has a small number on the tip to establish the size.)

Nailene Says
‘Perfect Fit every time. These So Natural nails are made with exclusive technology and designed to flex-to-fit either flat nails or high arched nails. ’To Remove: Soak in Acetone polish remover until artificial nails dissolve. DO NOT break or peel off nails

The Nails themselves are made out of Plastic. The Ingredients for the glue include: Ethyl 2-cyanoacrylate, Polymethyl Methacrylate

DANGER: Cyanoacrylate bonds the skin and eyes in seconds. It is irritating to the eyes Respiratory system and skin. Keep out of Reach of Children. Avoid Contact with Clothing as it can burn. Do NOT use if nail is inflamed of infected. If accidental eye / skin contact occurs flush with water for 15 minutes. Seek medical attention for eye or internal contact.

I love the fact that they aren’t too long and won’t require a lot of filing to get to a length that suits me. The other thing I was surprised about, I found some that actually fitted my TINY nails without filing.

I will take some photos and let you know how I get on with these once I have applied some.

Nailene Also have available a pack of the same ‘So Natural’ nails but this time with a non chip technology.

The second pack I was sent is called Couture and it has a design on the tip.

Nailene says
Nail designs straight off the runways! Wear today’s hottest nail trends with a fast and easy application. Perfect fit and Long wear.

(All the other information on the packaging is the same as the previous pack mentioned)

Nailene Review Part 2 of 3

As I am sure you can imagine I was very excited when my Nailene package arrived. It came in a big box which I am now kicking myself for not photographing before ripping it open. I was obviously too impatient, I am sure all you beauty bloggers can understand how that feels.

I will be sure to add pictures of all the packaging to give you an idea of what it was like....except the box as my mum threw it away before I had the chance to do so (oops) lol.

Inside the box was a purple gift bag which was stuffed with purple and green tissue paper. Purple is my favourite colour so this made it even better!

I was very impressed with the effort the Nailene team went to in making the package look as pretty as it did

Disclaimer: Yes I admit I did receive these products for free. However this WILL NOT have any effect on the review. I was NOT paid to do this. Therefore I will be sure to give you my HONEST opinions. Aside from the info on the product packaging the rest are just MY experiences and Opinions. If you don’t agree then that’s completely fine. :)

Now the good stuff.... the products I recieved!!


Nailene Says:

Nailene brings the salon home to you! Achieve a salon perfect French Manicure with these Polish Tip Guides.

I used these today with the Pearly Pink French Manicure Pen.

To be honest I find doing French nails very fiddly so even with the tip guides I feel I need quite a bit more practice. I am sure this is nothing to do with the product, I think it’s just because my hands aren’t that steady.

In my Opinion the guides and pen come as a whole. I feel people would find it a lot easier to use both together rather than separately. I used both today.

The one mistake I made was by deciding to save on guides, I used one for each hand. Looking back on it I feel this was a mistake. In my opinion it would work a whole lot better to use 1 tip guide per nail (I will try this next time.)


I find that if you aren’t careful the pens can be a bit messy. My recommendation would be to have some nail polish remover with you when you use these then you can clean up any mess that may occure.

Nailene Says: For Fingers and toes in two easy steps.

Optional: Apply tip guides across curve of nails to separate tip area.

Step 1: Actively shake pen. Press tip onto a protected surface for 30 seconds until tip is saturated with polish. Apply two coats to the tips of nails, let them dry. If guides were used peel them off gently.

Step 2: Apply one or two coats of Nailene’s Hard and healthy basecoat to the entire nail.

Be careful when do you the 1st step. As you run the risk of applying to much product, (this has happend to me many times.) Also be sure to make sure the tips are COMPLETELY dry before removing the guides, otherwise you will end up having to redo, (this also happend to me many times.)

I noticed step two says to use Nailene's Hard and Healthy base coat. For those of you that may now be thinking you have to rush out and buy this product in my opinion it isn't a necessity. I
don’t actually own this. I used the base coat I own which worked fine for me. So i'm sure any base coat would work perfectly well. I also applied a Dry Fast Top Coat on top to make drying a bit quicker. I will do a review at a later date of those two products.

I managed to get one nail to look half decent the other day. Two days later it is still looking as good as when it was first applied, Which I am actually quite pleased with considering it was 1st proper attempt. (two or three days after this the nail has come off completely so I will reapply soon to take a photo.)

I do have the white Pen as well but I haven’t really used it that much. I am not going to review this as it would be exactly the same.

I believe there is also a Pearly White available which i don't own and possibly even a black...I am not too sure on the black so dont quote me on that


Nailene Says

Easy to apply nail art stickers for fingers and toes! Everything you need to create fabulous nail art, all at the tip of your nails.
Application: Gently peel sticker off of the sheet and press onto the nail. For longer lasting effects apply a clear nail polish €over the entire nail.
To Remove: Use a nail polish remover, CAUTION KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN
Ingredients include Acrylic Polymer, Acrylic Resin, BHT, Glass Fibres.

As with the French tip pen I found these very fiddly. I applied one to my thumb today and I really like the effect.

I always used to think this type of nail art was quite tacky. To be fair I was only used to the kiddie type stickers that came off after an hour.

These Nailene one are very good. They are really pretty dainty stickers. I have been doing this review over the last few of days. Two days after applying the sticker was still on with no sign of any lifting 2 or 3 days later they have now completely come off, however I am still very impressed.

Pictures will be added when I have had a chance to take them and Part 3 to come when I have tried the false nails.

Hope you are enjoying the Nailene Review so far.

All comments welcome.
