Color Club Glitter Vixen Collection

A while ago I picked up this little beaut in TK Maxx for a bargain price of £7.99!! 7 Glitter polishes from Color Club. I've been meaning to post about them for a while and also review them but I haven't had the chance to actually wear them. All 7 of these are made up of multi-sized glitter suspended in clear polish. Most glitter polishes apply sparsely – these are the complete opposite of sparse. Anyway onto the colours...

Object Of Envy
Object of Envy is a gorgeous emerald green. I definitely do not own anything like this.

Art Of Seduction
This one will make everyone very much think of China Glazes 'Ruby Pumps' but they are massively different. 'Ruby Pumps' is very opaque and is a very fine glitter in a very sheer red polish whereas 'Art of Seduction' is full on red glitter in a clear polish so you can build it up, perfect for this festive time of year.

Sex Symbol
This is such a lovely silver glitter. I can't wait to try this out. I will probably wear this on my ring finger as a accent nail.

Magic Attraction
This is the one polish of the 7 I am most excited to try out. It's a holographic chunky glitter to which I don't own any others.

Sexy Siren
I love this colour. Who doesn't love a turquoise glitter polish.

Tru Passion
This is a delightful violet colour, and you can't go wrong with violet and glitter.

I am currently wearing this on my nails as I have to work tomorrow (Christmas Day) so to get my into some sort of a Christmas mood I painted this and surprisingly it only took 2 coats to get a perfect finish.

Hope you enjoyed this little overview and when I get a chance to wear a few more of the colours I might do a swatch & review post. I also have another Color Club Collection post coming up.

Christmas Party Nails: NOTN

Hey Guys, On Monday I had my works Christmas party. I was hoping to post some pictures but it turns out I didn't actually take that many photos!! But what I did think I could do for you guys is show you my nails for the night.

With Flash

Without Flash

Firstly I applied the Elegant Touch Totally Bare false nails (which I picked up from Superdrug, view them here.) I got these as someone at work had recommended them to me. And I have to say I have had them on for a week and they are 100% not chipped and still going strong!

The first colour is OPI 'Lincoln Park After Dark'. I love this colour especially for winter. It was so easy to paint onto the false nails and dried quite quickly.
Then the divine top coat is from the OPI James Bond collection. My dad very kindly purchased it for me. It is the 'The Man With The Golden Gun 18k Gold Leaf Top Coat'. I love the effect this polish gave and I have received so many compliments on my nails since wearing this. You do have to build up the gold leaf effect as you do with glitter polishes but then it dries quite fast so this doesn't take a lot of extra time.

What do you guys think? I'm off to reapply a new colour to my nails. Do you enjoy these type of posts? Let Me Know...

Christmas Party Dress Hunt: ASOS

Since I got such a good response from my post about Christmas Party Dress Hunting in New Look (You can read that post here) I thought maybe I'll do a couple more posts from didn't shops / sites leading up to the festive period.
These are all from

I love this dress. It's got the collar on it which is on trend at the moment and I love the skirt on it that puffs out sorta like a tutu. I'm also a lover of lace, so you can't really go wrong with this dress.
Again with the lace (I am rather obsessed!) and I adore the colour of this dress. A burgundy red wine sort of colour is definitely in season and especially for the month of December. I also like that it has little sleeves, which if your like me and hate your arms this would make me feel a little bit more secure and comfortable.
3. ASOS Party Dress with Velvet Trim - £40.00 £30.00
I know a lot of people tend to steer away from the lighter colours around Christmas time. Red wine + a cream dress = DISASTER! But I thought I would just throw this one in to the mix as a suggestion in case your attending a alcohol free soiree.
  I chose this dress as it's different to anything I've really seen before. I love the sequinned collar and bodice with the mesh material going across the chest area. Being a curvy girl, I'm not too keen on bodycon dresses but its not something that can't be solved with a pair of spanx!
Can you see a pattern emerging here? Another dress which is black & gold with sequins! Well everyone loves a bit of sparkle at their Christmas party don't they? This is a fun little dress that could still be worn after the festive period on a night out. And it's discounted at the moment...bonus!!
I thought I would chuck in another festive colour and a favourite for a lot of people, a little red dress! Again the bodice covered in sequins with a lovely chiffon skirt. The bodice has a wonderful cornelli flower design.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish - Lightscapade

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in 'Lightscapade' Limited Edition 2011

I don't know about you guys but I am addicted to MAC Mineralize skinfinishes! As much as I would love to own all of them, my bank balance just would not allow it. I have 3 in total. Soft and Gentle (permanent), Stereo Rose & Lightscapade.

MAC Lightscapade has been released with many collections and to be honest I can't remember which collection I actually purchased mine from. I do remember I saw it in a collection but didn't have the funds at the time so missed out. But like many limited edition products with MAC sooner or later they are re released and I was lucky enough that I had the funds this time round!

MAC describes it as a 'soft candlelight beige with multi-dimensional shimmer'. At first glance it may look very pale but when applied lightly it just gives a gorgeous shimmer.

All in all I love this highlighter and if you love the skinfinishes like me then next time this is released (it may be a while!) I urge you to go out and buy it!
