Hot To Trot Apricot - Love the name and the colour. A flesh toned peach creme.

Sally Hansen - Miracle Gel Review

Hi guys! How are you all going? Today I have a review of the Sally Hansen - Miracle Gel system! It is very unique and it does not require a base coat OR light to cure it! The colours i'll be showing are Pretty Piggy; a gorgeous salmon pink, Street Flair; a grey toned purple and Pink Tank; a raspberry red! I followed the directions as specified on the website and applied 2 coats of colour onto bare, clean nails, followed by 1 coat of the top coat. It cures by using natural light - and I was pleasantly surprised to notice that it touch dries in about 8 minutes - similar to CND Vinylux. These retail for $16.95 and are available from Priceline, Supermarkets, Kmart, and Target nationally. Have a look at my results after 5 days below!

As you can see, it only really lasted well for about 3 days on me - but my job does entail heavy hand/finger usage so this is actually really good results for me! I've seen some people have incredible results and am eager to try this again when i'm on holidays for a few weeks! Let me know what you think of this product and if you'll be testing it out! Thanks for reading and have a great week.

Model Co - Spring Racing Essentials (Red Lip & Black Mascara)

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a lovely morning so far! Today I have 2 make up products by ModelCo to show you - which are perfect for the Spring Racing season! You can never go wrong with lashings of mascara and a red lip so today that's what i'll be showing you! The Power Lash Long Wear Black Mascara (RRP $24.00 , available online here) is a brilliant mascara that thickens your lashes and noticeably lengthens them - without clumping! This was seriously hard to remove so is perfect for long days out in the heat! I've also been loving the Lip Lacquer Liquid Lipstick in the shade Fire Red, which is a gorgeous blue toned red which makes your teeth look whiter - and a bonus - this product smells like cherries, YUM!! It was really hard not to lick my lips but I managed to get a shot just in time. This is really easy to apply, but is slightly sticky on the lips, although it does leave a nice stain afterwards. This retails for RRP $17.00 and is available here. Check out how these looked on me below!

NCLA - Designer Nail Wraps

Hey everyone! Today I am showing you the new NCLA - Designer Nail Wraps in the designs "Truth In Turqouise" and "Amethyst". These nail wraps are unlike any i've tried before - they actually work! They're far more easier to apply, smooth down without making bubbles and not to mention - it is the longest lasting nail wrap i've ever used! (They've just been awarded the best nail wraps in the US - that's saying something!). These wraps retail for $22.00 and is available online at peppermayo.com. Today i'm showing you "Truth in Turqouise" on my nails. All I did was apply a base coat of OPI - Nail Envy and waited for it to dry. Then I applied the wraps and filed off any excess from the tips. I finished it off with 1 coat of Seche Vite. These lasted 5 whole days without any chipping, peeling or lifting! They definitely would of lasted longer but I was going a little crazy not being able to do my nails for 5 days so I removed them. They remove like regular nail polish too! These nail wraps are so great and perfect if you are in a rush or don't have time for detailed nail art! I also really want to customise my own wraps - the possibilites are endless! Thanks so much for reading and have a great weekend!

Essie - Mirror Metallics

Hi guys! Hope you are all well! Today I have some colours from the Essie - Mirror Metallics collection to show you, even though it has been out for quite some time, it's still a classic collection I wanted to try! There are 5 colours in this collection but today i'll be showing you 4 of them; Penny Talk (a bronze penny chrome shade), Blue Rhapsody (a mid silvery-blue chrome), Nothing Else Metals (a silvery lilac) and No Place Like Chrome (a silver chrome). As usual with chrome polishes, these dry very quick so you need to have a quick, light hand when applying otherwise you will drag the polish and it will be uneven. They are amazing colours and Penny Talk is so worth the hype! I applied 2 coats of each followed by 1 coat of G&G topcoat. Please excuse the different nail lengths in the photos, I had a break when I swatched the second half of these polishes. Essie can be found at Myer and Priceline (who have a really great sale on at the moment, selling these mirror metallic polishes for only $4.47!! - i'd suggest jumping online here now!)

Which colour is your favourite? Hope you enjoyed this post! xx

Opalescence Go Teeth Whitening Treatment

Hi everyone! Hope you are doing well and looking forward to the weekend! Today I have a product to show you by the brand Opalescence, that specialises in teeth whitening. The treatment I tested was the take home pack called Go 6%, an affordable whitening treatment that contains 6% hydrogen peroxide, and is so powerful and effective it is only dispensed by dentists. The way it works is that the powerful whitening gel comes in a prefilled, disposable tray that is simply inserted into the mouth and worn for an hour.

This product was super easy to use but did require a few tasks to be done before and after the application. The packaging says it must be refrigerated when not in use, but when you are intending on using the product you must let it cool to room temperature so you will need to plan in advance if you want to do it that night. It is ideal to do at night once you have finished eating because you need to brush your teeth straight after. Each tray has the letter T and B for top and bottom so you place them in your mouth, over your teeth and gently suck to make the gel adhere to the teeth. Once it feels securely placed you can take the plastic layer off the top of each tray and let it sit in your mouth for about an hour. After an hour it feels a bit funny as you're used to having something in your mouth restricting your teeth from fully closing but that quickly goes back to normal. I then brushed my teeth and examined my teeth. One thing I noticed actually was that some of my teeth had small whiter dots on them compared to the whole tooth, but this completely disappeared by the morning. I definitely noticed my teeth are much whiter than before and look great! It has been a month since I've used my last tray and i'm very happy with the results. Check out the website here to find out where you can try Opalescence in your area.

After, the next morning
I really enjoyed using this product and will definitely be using it when I notice my teeth start to become less white, it is a much quicker alternative to whitening toothpastes or pens and it caused me no sensitivity at all!
