Nail Wraps and Decals

I LOVE Nail Art and thanks to celebs such as Katy Perry and Rita Ora constantly rocking fab designs it's never gone off the radar which is good for me as it means the indie designers/artists etc. that I follow on Etsy have no reason to stop selling their fab products.

I have tried the hand painted nail art looks, having brought all the tools, but seeing as I cant even paint a base shade properly I knew I would fail from the start.

That's why I am such a fan of Nail Decals and Nail Wraps.

It's Nail Art in seconds with the added bonus of the ability to cover up mistakes in your base coat.

Below are a few of the designs that have been on my wish list for a while.

If you don't regularly shop on Etsy, Why???

It's an amazing site with a plethora of literally everything you could ever want.

Plus if you use this link HERE you can get £5 off your first purchase (and I will get £5 too which i hope you don't mind)

If you love Nail Art too feel free to leave me a link to your blogposts and if your new to Etsy make sure to let me know what amazing finds you come across.

Mini Mention #2 : Me Me Me

My other package this week contained goodies from the fab MeMeMe Cosmetics*

I was sent the GORGEOUS Eye Inspire Catwalk Quad* £6.50 in Drama Eye's and Coral Blossom Cheek and Lip Tint* £5.50

Lets start with the Eyeshadow Quad which is just beautiful.

I don't really have to say much as the pictures speak for itself. This product is just a fab mix of 4 beautiful eyeshadows at a very reasonable price

Used dry they give just a smidgen of colour (they make a lovely smokey) but used wet the duochromeness (is that a word !!!) of these colours are just beautiful. They would make an intense smokey liner.

At the price point you cant ask for a nicer mix of colours - just be prepared to have to use them wet and build up the colour if you want intense payoff.

I apologise for no swatches but no amount of artificial light is making my swatches true to life this evening.

Now onto one of the brands hero products - the Cheek and Lip Tint.

Normally this type of product isn't for me (there is a big brand alternative I never got on with) and given Coral is not a colour I would wear on my lips but once I swatched it I instantly knew this would be used a lot as a blusher.

The dewiness and light flush you get from this colour when blended out really well is just beautiful and whilst there is still a bit of summer in the air I will be using constantly.

Before these 2 products I had not tried any MeMeMe products but right now im desperate to get my hands on the Shimmer Stack £9.99 in both Bronze and Pink.

 If like me you need some MeMeMe Products in your life you can shop here* !!

For those fellow bargain hunters there is 15% off all products on your first order until the end of September along side the other money off offers on some products.

Do you have a favourite MeMeMe Product? Or is there one you really want to try?

Mini Mention #1 : Nanshy Blending Brush

I received 2 lovely packages this week with items to review and feature on the blog, the first one being this lovely Nanshy Brush*.

I have seen scores of reviews of Nanshy Brush Set's all of which have been positive, so when this arrived I knew I was going to love it.

Presenting the Blending Brush from the soon to be launched Masterful collection.

I don't know why but I have struggled to find a high street price good quality blending brush (and I have tried a lot) but this brush is up there with the synonymous blending brush, the MAC 217.  

I really like that as a brand all the brushes are PETA approved, and in my experience I find synthetic brushes give a smoother blend and gradient anyway.

The Masterful Collection is a 12 brush collection containing every brush you need for perfect seamless makeup.

The set is also available in Black but I like the white - it stands out as Nanshy.

The Masterful Collection has yet to launch but you can make sure your up to date with all the news by clicking here and signing up to the newsletter.

If you can't wait for the release of the set and want to get your hands on some brushes asap the online shop has just launched.

Do you have a favourite Nanshy brush ? Have you treated yourself to anything from the shop ?
