Glossybox review- Valentine's Day Edition










I was very excited when I seen a "sneak peek" of the Valentine's Day Edition Glossybox, as the packaging looked amazing in hot pink! And when I finally got my box yesterday I liked the pink even more because of the nice matte finish. The love heart and the grey ribbon inside looked really cute too.

The content this month wasn't as good as the January box :( but I enjoyed it anyway.
I was quite happy when I seen the Orly nail polish because I really wanted to try their products.
The Eyeko eye liner is just something I will probably never use as the colour is green and I am not a big fan of Eyeko products - they smell weird...
I was very happy about receiving the Weleda one step cleanser and toner - I like their products.
I will definitely use the FAB gentle body wash as I love to try this type of stuff :)
And the last thing-Murad Hybrids Skin Perfecting Primer-my favourite from this box.

I give the box 8/10. I am not as impressed as I was last month but I am still looking forward to the next box :) as I like the surprise element and lets face it-every woman likes to try beauty products :)
I am also thinking about subscribing  to Feel Unique Beauty Box.

BLACK CHERRIES, GLITTER & NEW RINGS

I love colours that just take your breath away. Sometimes I am very satisfied with 2 coats of one colour on my nails but most of the time I like to add a little sparkle or crackle effect.
I wasn't 100% sure about the Rimmel nail polish on its own. The colour looks exactly like black cherries  so the name was a perfect choice :) I decided that I want the colour more intense and rich so I applied a coat of glittery Deborah Lippmann Razzle Dazzle :) I also used 2 little hearts from the most adorable nail polish ever- Nicole by OPI Step 2 the B of My Heart.
And obviously- a top coat to finish it off.
I am very happy with the final effect. I am wearing my new rings. The gold flower with a purple stone is made by me :) and the double moustache ring is from ebay.

KIT HEATH jewellery and matching manicure

Hi everyone.

Before I became obsessed with gold jewellery I used to love silver with purple stones like amethyst & topaz. My loving husband bought me some absolutely beautiful pieces and when I am in a mood for a touch of purple, I wear my favourite Kit Heath set that I received for my birthday few years ago. For my 24th birthday I received the ring with the big stone(topaz). 

I used my newest Models Own nail polish in a beautiful pastel shade. It called  Beth's Blue, but to me it looks like a very light lilac/purple/blue shade. I love it even more because it goes with my jewellery.
I added a little bit of silver and some rhinestones to make it look more interesting.

Just a quick post today as my laptop is dead! The power adapter melted on my sofa!!! It could have ended badly, but we spotted it before it was too late. I am still in shock... Anyway... Enough drama...

 I am experimenting with nail colour at the moment and I painted my nails with:Barry M foil effects in gold-320 & Mavala in sparkling gold-227

Here is the final effect:

forever 21 confetti sweater

Hi everyone!
I was looking for a nice chunky knit sweater and I couldn't find one for a long time...
When I actually found my dream sweater it was sold out.
I wrote a post about it- zara bellowed sleeve sweater... ahhh...

The Forever 21 confetti sweater is very light but looks quite chunky :) and I love the way it looks with my black sequin collar from Vera&Lucy-currently on sale- available in black and gold from arkclothing: http://www.arkclothing.com/Black_Salma_Collar.html
I actually went to forever 21 website to get a link for the sweater, but its sold out.

silver foil nails with gold glitter+new rings


I used Barry M foil effects in silver and Mavala in sparkling gold.
I also used a few crystals on my thumb.
The rings I am wearing are from ebay.
What do you think about the gold nail ring? I am not too sure bout it. I wouldn't normally wear this amount of jewellery :) haha. I just wanted to show you all my new purchases.

NAILS- natural with a glittery twist

I love french manicure but it usually doesn't last long and (the tricky part) its hard to do it yourself... :)
Thats why I came up with a simple idea for a natural look with a little sparkle :)
I love the final effect.

I used my favourite make of nail polish to do this look- MAVALA.
The bottles are small but sooo cute :)

1.Apply 2 coats of Reno-91
2.Apply one coat of gold sparkle-227 on the tips
3.Apply more gold sparkle on the tips to make it stand out more.
