Simple Leopard Print Nails!

So again I got this tutorial off 'cutepolish' on YouTube and I thought I would show you how mine came out and what I did!

1. Paint nails a base colour, a colour a bit browner than the one I used would be better!
2. Then randomly paint some dots with a brown nail varnish
3. And finally paint some lines around the brown dots with some black nail varnish as well as some little black messy dots by themselves.
4. Finish with a clear coat.

This is really really easy to do and just to prove it, above is a picture of my right hand and we all know how hard it is to paint your nails with your left handed if you're not usually that handed.

Mothers Day Present Idea's

Hey guys! I know its quite late for a Mothers day post seeing as it is on Sunday but you might be a last minute shopper like me so thought I would take you through what I have bought my mum for mothers day! I love my mum to bits and every year she always tells me and my sisters not to get her anything but of course we always do! She's always very busy and gets tired so I thought I would do her a sort of 'pamper bag', in it I've included bits and bobs that she's said she wanted but never got.

I'll now take you through everything I got her! 

So the first two things are both Soap and Glory, I got her 'Hand Food' (£5.00) and 'Heel Genius' (£5.50). She's on her feet most of the day and she's always moving stuff about with her hands or washing up so she gets painful hands and feet. So I thought these would be great for her, now this is embarrassing to say but she does like me to give her foot rubs, hand massages and facials so I thought I could do that for her on Mothers day using these products (I'm such a lovely daughter :P)

The next lot of photos weren't taken by me because I have ordered these products but they haven't arrived yet. I've noticed that she doesn't really have many nice body washes or lotions for when she has a bath or shower. So I thought I would get her some, these are from superdrug and were both £2.05, I didn't think she would like the more sweeter/kiddy scents and I did want to get her the lemon or mango one but they were out of stock so I chose these ones!

I also got her two MUA nail polishes, I remember her buying one a while ago and telling me how she loved the colours and liked how fast they dried. The blue one is shade 1 and the bronzey one is shade 7, she's obviously a more mature lady so I didn't want to get her any really bright colours! These are £1 each.

The other day she mentioned how she really wanted to wear blusher but it doesn't suit her because she has got more of an oily face so I thought I would get her a peachy cream blusher as the texture of it would blend in a lot better with the rest of her face. This is the 'Gosh Natural Touch Cream Blusher in 004 Silky Rose' and it was £4. And finally she has been using my Herbal Essences smooth and soft intensive mask, so I thought I would get her one of her own as I know she loves it, this was £3.99

I was planning on getting her a lot more but my wages hasn't gone in! So hopefully I'll pick her up a few more bits tomorrow! When buying a mothers day present try and think about what she actually wants, has she mentioned anything that she wants to you over the past couple of months? Just think about what she'll like and appreciate! :)

Hope you enjoyed this, bye my lovelies!

NOTD: Dotty and Diagonal

So I thought I would do a quick post showing you my nails! I've named the post nails of the day, but these will probably nails of the week. I got this tutorial off 'cutepolish' which is a YouTube channel of a lovely girl who post tons of easy nail tutorials although you probably already watch her anyway! But I'll quickly talk you through what I did!

1. Diagonally place sellotape across your nails.
2. Paint nail black, I did two coats of the Barry M black nail varnish.
3. Wait for them to dry fully, then randomly place some white dots ( I used the brush, I didn't use a special dotting tool or anything)
4. Then slowly peal the sellotape off in an upwards motion.
5. And finish with a clear top coat! VoilĂ !

This Months 'To Buy' List!

So this month there has been a lot of goodies that I have had my eye on and I'd like to purchase the majority of them this month (march), which is a tad ambitious but I can hope!

The first thing I've wanted for a while are the 'Boots - 200 Clear Nails', I've wanted them since 'BroganTatexo' told us about them on her channel! I usually have acrylic nails on which I do myself but they do take a long time to do and they can chip after a while and filling them in gets a bit tedious. So when she told us about these I thought they looked brilliant and they would be a lot easier than the acrylics!

The next thing is a tanning mit....but its no normal tanning mit! :L Its one that can reach your back!! I found this utterly amazing when I discovered it! When tanning I either leave my back or ask my mum to do it which is quite annoying so it would be great to be able to do it myself! :)

I've also been wanting some heated rollers, I love the kind of curls that they make and I want curls to look softer!

I've also been wanting a tangle teezer, I've seen a lot of Bloggers and YouTubers mentioning that they have purchased this and I think it looks brilliant. Sometimes my extensions do get quite knotty and I don't like tugging on them with a brush because its obviously not good for them so I think this would be a better alternative :)

So you probably know that Nicki Minaj has a range with OPI and the colours look absolutely amazing! I want them all, except the pinky purply one.

MAC has also re-released their Tendertones in a new collection and I am soooooo happy! I only started liking the Tendertones just as they were getting rid of them! So I am so glad that they are back again!

I also want the Urban Decay Naked Palette, I know this product is quite old but I still haven't got it, but I've watched tutorials and reviews of it and I want it so badly! The colours look lovely and they are the kind of tones that I love!

More Nicki Minaj, you're probably thinking I'm obsessed with her or something, I'm not but I love all the ranges she is bringing out with companies! So it is the Viva Glam Lipstick in 'Bright Yellow Pink'.

Next is Benefits 'Porefessional', with my new skincare routine I don't get many spots but I do get one or two every now and again and they don't look very flattering underneath make up, so anything that minimizes them would be brilliant!

The next two things are the Real Techniques Make Up Brushes, the ones I wanted are the stippling brush and the blush brush.

And finally I have been looking for a liquid eyeliner, I usually use gel liners but I want to try something new! So I'm hopefully going to get the Soap & Glory Supercat Eyeliner.

And that's everything, I hope you enjoyed this post! Byee!!
