Amie New Leaf Skin Exfoliating Polish

A wonderful winter skin pick-me-up!

Exfoliating is essential during the autumn and winter months as the colder temperatures lead to skin that looks dull and feels dry.

Luckily for you there may be the perfect product: Amie Skincare’s New Leaf Skin Exfoliating Polish. Continue reading

Beauty Tip of the Month – August 2013

August2013

If you haven’t used a nail polish for a few months (or years!), or if you’re favourite varnish is running low, then you may find that it’s gone gloopy and that your manicure doesn’t look too great. However, we have discovered a cheap and effective way of thinning out varnish… using nail polish remover! Whilst it may seem illogical, when well mixed – and providing you don’t add too much – the remover will thin the polish and restore it to almost its original quality. Continue reading

Barry M ‘Satsuma’ Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint

Barry M Satsuma Nail Paint

Gorgeously glossy coral colour.

I used Barry M nail polishes throughout my teenage years but became a little bit of a polish snob after discovering more expensive brands such as nails inc. and MAC. However, I recently decided to try Barry M’s amazing range again after their bright colours caught my eye and have now found my nail colour for the summer thanks to their Gelly Hi-Shine collection!

Beauty Tip of the Month – June 2013

BeachyHair

Gentle waves that make it appear as though you’ve spent the whole day at the beach are such a desirable look for summer! It can be tempting to buy expensive salt sprays to help you achieve the sexy, seasonal look, but a far more cost effective alternative is to make your own.

You need:
A clean spray bottle
200ml of filtered or distilled water
Half a tablespoon of sea salt (the more finely ground, the better)
Half a teaspoon of coconut conditioner (for a beachy smell, and to counteract the drying salt)
A dab of cheap hair gel

Method:
Put all of the ingredients into the bottle and shake until thoroughly combined. You can add more salt if you have thick hair or want more texture, but the more you add the more it will dry your hair out!
