As I normally have reasonably long nails, even with them breaking, I have never seen the real need for false nails for me but as I had a job interview recently I wanted my nails to look a bit more uniform and professional, cue the false nails. As I wasn’t sure how long they would last or how long I wished to keep them on I didn’t want to spend a fortune. I had heard about other beauty bloggers rave about primarks ones so I thought I would give them a try and for a pound I had nothing to lose.
I went for the classic French tips, pretty quick and easy to stick on, we’re not a totally bad fit for my nails which was great, the length didn’t get in my way and stop me from day to day life, which is always a bonus and lasted until I decided to pull them off a few days later ( they don’t advice this, they say to use acetone to remove them ).
My over all conclusion is not bad for a pound and will defiantly be purchasing more in the future.

Hey guys, I’m getting more in the festive spirit as the month goes on, I’m letting the busy shopping crowds be all but a small blip to me but I know to some it can very stressful, my tips to combat this are
Have a plan, weather it be what shops you need to go in or what your planning to buy
Take breaks, what better excuse to try the Christmas drinks that are on offer
Do some research on what you plan to buy, that way your not going around the shops like a headless chicken
Or do I like plan to do to take advantage of late night shopping and Internet shopping
Break your shopping into smaller shopping trips if you can
Getting back in to the festive mood I’ve been listening Christmas music and wrapping my dog’s Christmas presents, putting on the Christmas lights in my room, watching home alone and now elf. I’ve even made my bed more festive.
I’ve been trying to capture some of that magic from when I was a child and keep up with some of the traditions of my childhood, unfortunately I’m a little to old to sit and go through the Argos catalog and make my list for Santa or go and see Santa but there are others I can do like watching Christmas films while wrapping presents, Christmas baking, decorating the tree, and planning new traditions like going ice skating, taking the dog for a walk Christmas morning( something we did last year) watching a Christmas film with hot chocolates Christmas Eve.
What are some of your traditions or traditions you would like to start and if you have any tips to making shopping as stress less as possible please share. feel free to comment, I love reading your comments a
Hey guys, entering double digits now and only a fortnight until Christmas eve, and I have had yet another busy day buying Christmas cards, presents and trying to find the perfect Christmas candle. I’m currently burning my ikea and Primark candles which smell lovely and Christmassy ( don’t think that is even a real word ) but I want a big Christmas candle that doesn’t smell sickly sweet ( I hate fake vanilla smells) burns well and doesn’t cost the earth.
anyway as my last Christmas inspired nails chipped off, I removed the rest and repainted them a bright pink that has a subtle sparkle to it and its lasting so far, a little wear around the edges but that’s to be expected with me. it went on smooth, I do love the brushes in the Avon nail polishes, there not too big nor too small and the polish its self is opaque in two coats. the colour is called pink radiance .
sorry its a short post today but I feel drained, despite having a salted caramel latte earlier. How have you all been getting on with your festive preparations?
