It seems like I did not write about red in quite some time… This is why today I want to share about my top 3 red nail polishes. I love red nail polish so much that it is even my Twitter’s header photo.
So what nail polishes are we talking about?
Marc Jacobs Nail Enamored Hi-Shine Nail Lacquer in Lola (swatch)
This is probably my all time favourite red! It is a hot tomato red which is opaque with only one layer, it is glossy and shiny and last pretty well on my nails. Whenever I am in doubt about my manicure shade – I go for this one. And how gorgeous is that bottle?

Illamasqua just launched their newest makeup collection with some great basic products, like eye and lip pencils, nude lipstick and blush; and a trendy contouring palette.
The products are:
Sculpting Palette (Contouring and Highlighting Palette), £44
It includes six versatile powder shades. Here are the tips on the best way to use it: ” Using the Contour Brush, apply Cirrus to the highest points of the face to subtlety highlight features. With the same brush, gently create an under-shadow by applying Nimbus to the hollow of the cheek and down the sides of the nose. Follow by blending Heroine (light to medium skin-tones) or Create (medium to deep skin-tones) over the under-shadow created with Nimbus for a more realistic finish. Achieve a cooler tone to your contour by mixing in Nimbus; or create a warmer effect by mixing in Steal. Illuminate your highlighted areas by layering Rush down the bridge of the nose, and above the cheek bones, blending towards the hair line.”

I had a relatively long hair and my natural colour for years (here is a photo). And… a) I have a lot of hair but it is thin and doesn’t look that good b)I had the same, more or less, length for years and years; plus I did not colour it so I got very bored, as I used to change my hair style all the time in the past.
This is why back in February I’ve asked to chop off all the thin and damaged hair, so I ended up with a shoulder length hair style. It was a big change but once I was over a slight shock, I knew that I was ready for more experiments. This is why last week, I changed my hair style completely, and I even had it coloured for the first time in years.
It is nothing too dramatic, just a darker shade of cool toned brown which is still not as cool (toned), as I wanted it to be. My natural colour is really cool toned, and I hate anything warm/reddish on myself. But I find that it is even harder to get a spot-on dark hair than blonde (I was blonde for several years).

Regular readers may know my obsession with Neutrogena’s body lotion with Nordic Berry but this time I’ve decided to get a Deep Moisture one. And it is a favourite of a lot of people with very dry skin.
And, as someone with extremely dry skin, I can confirm that it is amazing! One of the best affordable body lotions you can get. It definitely moisturizes and nourishes the skin, without leaving a greasy residue. I find that the only body cream in the same price range I like as much, as this one is the red one (as I call it) by Garnier which I have used several bottles of.
