Nude Glitter Nail Tutorial!

Hey guys! I have been tryign to grow my nails for absoloutley AGES! they have finally been growin so I thought I would make a nail tutorial.

It's super simple and easy to do and you don't have to use the same colours but I wanted something plain and simple with added glitter to excite it a little.

The products I used to create this look are:
- SEVENTEEN Lasting fix nail colour (Clear)
- L'Oreal Color Riche Nails (Beige countess 104)
- L'Oreal Color Riche Nails (Sequin Explosion 842)
(Click the Image for Tutorial!)

I purchased a few of the L'Oreal Nail polishes and I will be doing a review on them really soon, I want to see how long it takes to chip first!

Let me know if you've tried them before and which colours look best!

Lots of Love

Review: VIichy Dermablend

As you all probably know, I suffer from acne prone skin. I have tried evey foundation in the world in order to mask it. Baring in mind I have been using foundation for 4+ years now, I have been through my fair share of products. 

Before I begin this post I would like to point out that the pictures I have included within this post were a huge step for me and took a lot of guts, it is so out of my comfort zone. I felt that the only way to show what this product can do is include photos of my skin completely bare with no makeup at all. 

As I was on youtube one day, I came across a product line I had never heard of before, their motto was "be skin confident. I for one have never been skin confident, I think when you suffer from acne, it can be hard to feel confident, even if you have convered well. I researched this product and read so many positive comments. Optimistic, I went and purchased two of their products. 

The two products I purchased are:

The Dermablend collection is created by Vichy which is a well known brand. The Products are only available in boots or online as far as I am aware. 

I started off by squeezing out a small amount of the foundation onto the back of my hand, I then used my Real Techniques stippling brush to buff the product onto my skin. The coverage is immediate and i was blown away. there was an instant glow to my face with a balanced colour all over, no large red pimples or dark under eyes. For the first time in a LONG time, I felt like I had the skin I had always wanted. The product is in no way heavy or cakey which is one of the biggest plus points of the foundation. On the skin it feels light with no strong scents or drying effects. 

after applying the foundation I applied the setting powder which mattifies my whole face. I have never used a powder before as I feel it dries my skin up and clogs my pores up, however, I have not experienced this with the Dermablend powder. I apply the powder with my Real Techniques powder brush as it is huge and spreads the product lightly. 

I have created a before and after in order to show you just how great this product is. I hate the first photo as my skin looks terrible, and it is not at it's worst either! I have tried to take the photos in the same light and have in no way edited them.

From the side:

From the front:

The over all coverage of this product is brilliant and it brings a lovely healthy glow to my skin. I know the price is above the average highstreet product however I completely feel you are paying for what you get, a brilliant product.  I am in love with this line of products and am hugely thankful to the team who created such amazing cosmetics.


Both products are a god send and I can't wait to try any other products they have.

Let me know if you have tried these products and what you thought!

Lots Of Love
