Nubar 2010 Halographic Nail Lacquer

My first Nubar! Got it from Feel Unique for £6.80 with free shipping.

I lemminged this after seeing it in Affordable Treats. I missed out on halographic flakies with Gosh Rainbow and was glad it find a dupe.

Nubar 2010 is a lazy way of snazzing up any nail polish. Does'nt matter which colour but I think it looks best with dark cremes. It's formaldehyde, phthalate and toulene free. The handle is easy to control and the bottle looks like a professional product.

The flakies reflect red, green and gold highlights in a clear base. In this picture I'm wearing Rimmel Exotica with two layers of 2010 and a top coat. A Christmas-y combination for the season.

More combos to come so stay tuned!

Barry M Nail Paint Bright Purple

Got this when Superdrug had a 2 for £5 sale. I'm crazy for these deep fuschia purples because they suit any skin colour.

It took three coats to get it opaque and it dries super shiny. I'm not using top coat here. The colour is intense and it looks like vinyl. The photo does'nt do it justice!

Global Keratin Hair Taming Treatment - 2 Months On

It's officially two months and the treatment's still going strong.

My hair is a little kinkier than before but still low-frizz and shiny. As in my previous post, my hair did'nt take the GHD heat well so the ends are quite split now. (Half-because I have'nt had a trim yet.)

I'm using the Global Keratin shampoo with Juvexin religiously and a normal sodium sulfate free conditioner. I wash 2-3 times a week so I assume it helps to prolong the treatment.

At this rate I might not need a re-treatment for another 2 months!

Autumn Outfit Of The Day

Winter's around the corner and I want to capture autumn in all it's glory. How lovely is this season?

After brunch and a cuppa in front of a fireplace, my friend and I walked to Hampstead Heath. The heath is beautiful with the ground blanketed by floaty orange leaves.

This autumny outfit is made up of frugal finds (except the handbag of course).

Urban Decay Nail Polish - Trip

While having my prescription filled at Superdrug, I scavenged the bargain bin and found this reduced to 99p.

I fell in love with the color straight away. *Palpitates* Hot fuschia satin with lots of shine. The formula dries quickly. The brush stem is long and slender for precise application.

While the bottle is cute, the top is not easy to grip on to because it's short and tapered. That's my only complaint but everything else is a love!

ETA: I did the house work the next day and the polish chipped off in CHUNKS. OK not chunks but the tips have flaked right off. Won't be buying anymore of these nail polishes. Eek!
