Headline colours = elephantastic

Doing something slightly different today. I’ve decided if I get a nail polish in my GlossyBox then I will show you guys the polish, and the other products that I received. I won’t review the other products as my focus here is nails, but sometimes (pretty good so far) the box is worth buying for the extra products depending on the polish price. This months box the birthday one was amazing for me.

The eyeliner from collection (full size) I will use, and that retails at £2.99. Jelly pong pong mascara (full size), Mascara is my most used product next to lip balm and this one retails at £15.00. The hand bag nail files are so cute, and I will definitely be using those. Paul Mitchell shine spray (full size) come summer this baby will be out, retails at £18.95. Beautiful movements cosmetics  prime and create mixing medium (tester) which is something I would only use occasionally as a primer. Lets get onto the main one: nail polish!

HLC poolside

This is Poolside party from headline colours spring/summer 2013 collection. It retails at £9.00. That rather large price tag means I wouldn’t buy it usually. This coverage was achieved with 2 coats. Now y’all know I’m impatient with drying time, and a sv addict. Well guess what?! this polish dried by itself in half hour (when I checked). The only reason I didn’t use sv was due to catching up on Hart of dixie, and I thought why not give no sv another go. That drying time never happens to me EVER much to my annoyance! At first I was meh, then BAM the drying time bowled me over.

Note to self: who was I kidding thinking I could do uniform dots.

How cute is that little elephant?! I love him. These water decals are from YRNails, and the huge order I made a couple of months back. The rhinestones and glittery dots on my accent nail represent the water the elephants blowing out. If you don’t mind a few bubbles Seche vite works well for keeping rhinestones intact on the nail. So far its been 3 days, and I’ve lost none.

For my other nails I just dotted China glazes glistening snow on. Clean up on my little finger sucks, sorry.

pretty paper

This months GlossyBox wrapping has such pretty paper. What I received in this box is fantastic value. Quick thank you to my other half as he got my subscription as a present for me. Have to say me and my mom get really excited opening it; reminds me of childhood memories of lucky bags.

A very dear friend of mine went to the Covent garden event for the birthday celebrations, and got a free box. Poor thing felt ill, and attacked after.
