Penny's Zip Top Ankle Boots

Hey guys!

Were any of ye lucky enough to pick up these beauties in Penny's last week? I had been looking for a pair of ankle boots for day wear for WEEKS but couldn't find any I liked until I saw these.



They are the perfect height for me, super comfy and I love the zip detailing around the top. They were a steal at just €20 (sure where would you be going?!) and I've been wearing them nearly everyday since I got them. 


I'm not sure if they still have any in stock, I know they sold out in Cork pretty quickly. They also had them in dark brown but I preferred the tan colour :) 

Have you found any great items in Penny's lately? Let me know in the comments below! 

Bye beauties!!

Realash Final Update

Hey guys!

Today is my final update on Realash lash serum. If my missed my previous posts click here and here ;) 

I've been using the serum religiously every night before bed since the second week of October and I have to say I'm impressed. I really have noticed a huge difference in my eyelashes, just take a look at the before and after pics below. Sorry about the difference in the quality, I got a new camera after the first update was posted so now I have much better quality photos, hurrah! ;)

I think that this really is a fantastic product overall. I'll admit I was pretty skeptical at first that this would even work but the results speak for themselves! As you can see from the photos my lashes are much fluffier and longer. My lashes are naturally quite straight so It's hard for me to photograph them without mascara because you normally can't see them. Now when I have mascara on they reach my eyebrows if I look up! Success!



If your lashes are in need of some TLC go and buy this now, you won't regret it! :) For more information go to their Facebook page, YouTube or website. I'm definitely going to continue using Realash, I don't think now that I could live without it!

Bye beauties!

Polka Dot Crown Nails

Hey guys!

HAPPY NEW YEAR! 
Hope you all have a great Christmas, mine was pretty quiet but nice :)

Just a quick nail of the day post today, its super quick and easy to achieve and looks pretty fancy. First I painted my thumb, index and ring finger black using Ciaté Ghetto Fabulous (which for some reason has been renamed to Unrestricted Glam....anybody else notice this?) and my middle and pinky finger white with OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. 


Next I put a blob of both polishes on a piece of paper and dipped the top of a bobby pin into each and dotted on each nail except my ring finger with the reverse colour (so black dots over the white polish and white dots over the black). 


For the crown I made a stamping sticker using Essie Penny Talk which is a metallic rose gold and my Moyou Tourist stamping plate in 01. This was super easy to do, just place your polish over the design you wish to make the sticker with and scrape off the excess. Then press your rubber stamper over the design. Instead of transferring straight onto your nail like you would normally do just paint a layer of top coat directly onto the stamp and leave for a minute or two. Once the edges are dry you can lift the sides of the design using a tweezers and transfer onto your nail. It's best to either paint a thin layer of polish onto the nail you want to place the sticker, it can either be a top coat or another layer of colour, whatever you like. Once you've successfully transferred the sticker seal it with a final layer of top coat. There you have it, a homemade sticker :) If you would like to see this in action I found the following video from ellandish really helpful. Her Super Mario design is awesome!


Have you tried this technique of stamping stickers? If so leave me a picture of your designs below!

Bye beauties!
