 Hey gorgeous ladies,

This morning I was in the mood to do my nails a little different then usual. I am always saving cool nail ideas on my Ipad so I can recreate them. I came across this photo of these fun looking nails and I thought why not!
I can do that!

I hope you all enjoy this.
I have taken photos of each step if you want to recreate this look.
Let me know in the comments what you think of this nail design.

So first things first I picked out my nail polish colours.
I used;
White = sinful colours / snow me white 101
Purple = BC co / shade 14
Glitter = Maybelline colour show Brocades/ Knitted gold 220
Black = Colour club Nail art/ Black

The first step of polishing is the white, I painted my pointer and pinkie fingers on both hands with one coat of white.

Now with the purple I went and painted the remainder of the nails.

Once you have one coat on all you nails, you want to go in and do another coat to make that polish look amazing and last longer.

Yay! We are now onto the glitter, Girls love a little glitter in their life… haha

To apply the glitter around the top part of my nail around the cuticle area I used a nail art brush with a very fine tip. This helped me get the polish in the right place precisely. The easiest way for me to do this was to put a small amount of the polish onto a scrap piece of paper then take the product off the paper and apply it to my nails. This was the easiest way and it helped in the precision of the product; as you could see how much glitter you were taking.

Now that the glitter is drying, you want to do your polka dots.
This step is totally up to you, sometimes I use a nail art dotter but today I just used the same brush as I used to place the glitter into my nails. Of course I used nail polish remover to remove the remainder of the glitter before applying the black. I placed the black polish onto the paper the same way I did the glitter then I placed a dot at the top of my nails and the bottom then filled in the rest, this way you get a good even pattern on your nails.

Now your ready for the last coat of glitter around the top of the nail (by applying to coats it makes it POP!) At this stage I went in and also did a second coat on any of the polka dots that weren’t as black as I would of liked it.

This is now the time you want to rest. Go watch your favourite TV show or do something relaxing that’s not going to wreck your nails you don’t want to apply top coat until the black is partly dry or you polka dots will just smudge down your nails… not a good look girl.

I hope you all love the end result.
Let me know if you have tried or want to try this.

Love you all
Have a beautiful day !

How to get through stressful times at university

Hey dolls,

Today I thought I would post something that is completely different to what I would usually post. I’m going through a really tough stage at uni, I’ve got three weeks left of the semester and everything is due!
This can be an extremely tough time for a lot of people; it not only brings out stress but also can be very tolling on your body.

I’m going to share a few tips and tricks that help me get through this horrible time.

The first thing when your exhausted and tired you always tend to jump for junk food, or food that is high in sugar to give you that pick me up such as energy drinks both, lollies chocolate bars ect all of these are a big NO NO !

First of all, products that contain refined sugars are no good for your brain it gives you a quick pick me up and then you crash an hour later these types of food are not good for concentrating and doing things that need your full attention. When I’m feeling like this I always jump for food that is high in protein it not only keeps you full for a long time but you don’t crash a few hours later. I love eating chick pea salads, lentils, chicken salad and if I need a quick snack soy crisps and rice crackers are really good. But if your looking for something sweet jump for your favourite fruit.

Now we all know when you stress your skin tends to break out, well mine does. So I like to use a face mask/ treatment to help my skin revive and not feel to out of wack. I like to use the mask by lush called cosmetic warrior it is such a good mask as it has garlic and tea tree oil two things that help your skin repair and prevent future breakouts.

Next and last thing I like to do is surround myself in a relaxing environment, if you have a home office that is good but if you are in your room set yourself up with some candles and it will help you relax and get your work done. I love to get into loose warm clothes and set up with my bakery cupcake candle burning.
You want to make sure you shut Facebook, instagram and any sites that may help you get distracted.

When your trying to get solid hours of study done the worst thing to do is to just sit there for 5 straight hours and study. This has been proven to not give you a beneficial study period. If you study for an hour then have a half an hour break it helps you retain the information better instead of over loading your brain. Go get a snack or check your social media for half an hour do something to help you unwind and not think about the work ahead of you. Then go back to your work. You will find that this will help your study sessions tremendously. If you cram for 4 hours straight you will not retain the information and you will only be able to remember certain words and sections you have read.

I know that sleep can be so hard when you’re a uni student with all the assignments and tests constantly, which makes you feel extremely over whelmed and drained the best thing to do is try and get to sleep at a reasonable time as waking up early will feel so much better then staying up getting your work done late. You will find that you will produce much better work.

Well this is a super long post so I’m going to leave you with this,
I hope you are all having a lovely week.
Good luck to anyone at university or school.
Talk to you soon.

The first product I purchased was the Maybelline Super Stay 24 hour concealer in “ivory”. It is the lightest shade in this range and is a lovely creamy consistency. It is super long lasting and doesn’t crease. If you have oily skin or have problems with concealers creasing this one is perfect for you.

Colour- Ivory
Cost- $7.90 

The second thing I bought was a Maybelline Colorsensational Lipstick in the colour “Pink Pop”. It is a gorgeous Barbie pink I have purchased these lipsticks before and they are amazing for drug store they last a long time and have a lovely creamy constancy. These brands of lipsticks are extremely pigmented and the colour pay off is amazing.

Where to buy: Chemist Warehouse/ Priceline
Colour: 900 Pink Pop
Cost: $7.50

It must be a Maybelline kind of shopping trip I also got another Maybelline item it is there hyper glossy liquid liner in black. This liquid eyeliner is amazing it gives you perfect procession and is extremely black. It would have to be one of my favourite eyeliner products.

I’ve seen so many good things about the Chi Chi dramatic lip lacquers and all as I can say is OMG they are amazing they are so pigmented and creamy and long lasting all I can say is go out and try this product it is by far one of my favourite lip products at the moment. I got the colour Valley Doll and it is this gorgeous hot pink, I absolutely love it so much, I cant wait to do a tutorial with this lip colour.

Where to buy: Target

So the last makeup item I purchased was the NYX dewy finish setting spray, this is the first setting spray I have ever purchased and used so I’m super excited to see how it works. I have seen a lot of people use it and it makes your makeup look lovely and not so cakey and powdery on the skin.  If this product works well I will look at purchasing a higher end one.

How Much: $14.95

I hope you have all enjoyed reading everything I purchased today.
