Beauty Inspiration: Almond Shaped Nails

One of my favourite things about beauty is the ability to change your routine according to your mood and preferences. Some time ago I’ve posted about the different nails shape and length I’ve had during the years, and today I want to share about my current obsession which is long almond-shaped manicure.

I am not entirely sure where this came from but several weeks ago, I’ve  decided that  I want my nails to look this way, I was even considering stiletto [shape] but that is not very practical in real life.

So here is just a picture of the latest two manicures I’ve had this month. The red

My Top 3 Red Nail Polishes

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.

My Top 3 Red Nail Polishes Marc Jacobs Revlon Max Factor

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?

New Beauty Purchases

I was trying all that bronzer/golden eye shadow/nude lips look for a while but I came back to what I love and to what works for me – red and berry.

After a week of being sick at home, I’ve decided to go and get some new makeup products, as  a little pick-me-up treat and since I haven’t got anything new in forever (and I mean colour & cosmetics, not beauty products in general). And I’ve decided to get some drugstore products I’ve been meaning to pick up  for some time now.

First of all, Bourjois  Rouge Edition Velvet Lipstick (you can get it on-line for £8.99 from Feel Unique).

Yes, just when their Aqua Laque  is the new big thing  – I’ve finally got the original version. And I really, really love it.  It feels weightless on the lips and gives a gorgeous matte wash of colour. I’ve chosen the shade 01 personne ne rouge which is a beautiful red. Stay tuned for a detailed review and lip swatches.

Nails Inc Spring Summer 2015 Mini Gel Effect Collection

How absolutely gorgeous is the new design of the Nails Inc? So chic, classic and sophisticated. And the gel effect formula is great, too. And their collaborations with Victoria Beckham and Alexa Chung are pretty coo, too.
