ASOS WHITE








All too often you will find me wearing incredibly fitted ensembles but from time to time, I do like to slip into something less contrived like this lovely ASOS WHITE maxi courtesy of Access All ASOS team.

TOPSHOP SASHAY AWAY AND BOOKWORM LIPSTICK REVIEW & SWATCH


TOPSHOP BOOKWORM & SASHAY AWAY LIPSTICK




SASHAY AWAY LIPSTICK ON THE LIPS

Topshop's 'Sashay Away' lipstick is a brown tone lipstick that appears to have a satin finish that works as an excellent nude lipstick for me.  I love how the  sashay away lipstick glides on to my lips with complete ease with a full and proper coverage.  It has fast become my go to nude/brown lipstick in my collection. 

I first lined my lips with MAC's chestnut lipliner  before applying Sashay Away to achieve the finish you can see in the pictures above. You can watch my video review in the clip below to see how I achieved this finish step by step.

SUMMER STRIPES








Today's outfit features a new in the kloset piece courtesy of Shein in the form of the shirt dress featured in this post. 

When it comes to prints, I'm a big fan of stripes and gingham. I find them to be versatile prints that can be paired with pretty much any pattern or texture out there.

NAIL PAINT OF THE WEEK: NAILS INC. TRAFALGAR MEWS


NAILS INC TRAFALGAR MEWS



After  going for a neon bright shade last week, I wanted to keep things mellow so I choose Nails inc. Trafalgar Mews, a blush pink shade from the coconut brights gel effect collection. The coconut gel effect collection is infused with coconut water to hydrate your nails. It is an ideal way to wear a bit of colour on your nails whilst also knowing your nails are being cared for in the summer heat.

NAILS INC SUMMER 2016 RELEASES


NAILS INC SUMMER 2016 RELEASE



(L-R) CLARIDGE GARDENS, GOLDEN LANE & GREAT EASTERN STREET

The stay bright neon collection has been one of the most colourful additions to the Nails Inc for summer 2016. The collection features three non fade neon polish in an electric pink shade, a shocking yellow shade,  fluro coral and a neon orange shade (not pictured). 

I have already worn Golden Lane in a previous post and I can assure you that the neon polishes really are non fade and stay bright for the duration of the wear. As long as you apply the neon activator polish on your nails first before applying your preferred neon polish, you will not be disappointed with the finish results.

I wore Golden Lane on my nails for at least seven days before going for a mellow pink shade in the form of Trafalgar Mews also by Nails inc. I am now itching to try out Claridge Gardens  so you can expect a post on that very soon. 

The Nails inc. stay bright neon collection is available to buy in stores like House of Fraser and Selfridges but you can also grab it online too at Nailsinc.com for £15 a bottle



(L-R) CHELSEA PARK LANE, TRAFALGAR MEWS, PORTOBELLO TERRACE, CHARLES STREET & ST JAMES PLACE

The collection new for summer 2016 is the coconut brights gel effect nail polishes. The formulation for the coconut gel effect collection is infused with coconut water, a conditioning agent to hydrate those nails through the summer months. 

The colours featured are summer appropriate with a varied colour tones from a dove grey shade, blush nude, sky blue, hot pink and a pastel baby peach shade. I have been wearing Trafalgar Mews (blush nude) for the past week and will be sharing my "NPOTW" post on that very soon.

One of the things that I love about the Nails inc gel paints is the glossy salon finish that it provides. The finish is so glossy that you don't need a top coat but a top coat is always recommended to maintain the glossy finish for longer. The collection is available on Nailsinc.com retailing for £29.

SLEEK FACE FORM DARK & CANDY TINT BALM REVIEW






The above two pictures show the finished results from using Sleek Makeup's face form dark palette. For me it is the the first time that I have used a contour shade that shows up against my skin. It is for this reason alone that the Sleek face form dark palette has now become an addition to my daily makeup routine. It is now my go to palette to contour, add a touch of bronzer and highlight to my makeup. 


CONTOUR, HIGHLIGHTER & BRONZER

I used the contour to define my cheekbones and create a  chiselled look. I then used the bronzer to add a touch of shimmer before finishing off with the highlighter to add a touch of glow to complete my look. 

You can watch how I applied the face form palette in my video review below.

NAIL PAINT OF THE WEEK: NAILS INC. GOLDEN LANE STAY BRIGHT NEON








For this week, I have opted for yet another bold shade from Nails Inc. Last week I wore an old polish in the form of Judo Red from Nails Inc's collaboration with Victoria Beckham. This week I have gone  for Golden Lane from the "stay bright neon collection' which is part of their new 2016 summer releases. 

The collection consists of four colours, a fluro coral shade, an electric pink shade, shocking yellow and a neon orange option. I am sure you can tell which one I went for. As you can see Golden Lane truly is as shockingly bright as it's colour description and I love that. 

Check out how you can achieve your very own neon bright manicure at home with a few simple steps  listed below.

SUMMER FLORALS & DENIM FIX









We're supposed to be at the height of the summer weather over here in London so I am doing my best to reflect that with my fashion. I may currently be sitting indoors overlooking a forlorn cloudy skies but on the day when theses series of shots were taken, the weather was pleasantly nice and as such I deem my outfit appropriate.
