Bio Seaweed Gel Unity All-in-One Colour Gel Polish

Bio Seaweed Gel Unity Uptown Lights Collection
::: press sample :::

You might know that nail polish is one of my favourite things, but you might not know that my nails hate it. I have tried every method in the book, and what feels like every products to try and keep polish on my nails, but I rarely get much more than two or three days wear before chipping, flaking and peeling set in. There have been some products that give me an extra day or two, but nothing ends up being long-lasting. I've tried a few gel systems with mixed results, but decided to give one more a try when the opportunity to try Bio Seaweed Gel came along. Am I ever pleased that I did! I won't get ahead of myself, so read on for my wear experience and an easy to create sea inspired nail art look!

LA Splash Liquid Lipsticks | Ghoulish, Nymph Adora & Lovegood

LA Splash liquid lipsticks (2)
::: I bought it :::

I'm not sure where my head was when I planned this week's posts, but it looks like it's all about matte lips and nails. I've always loved nails and have been very into matte lips lately, but with all the brands releasing liquid lipsticks, I'd say I'm not alone on the last one. I recently fell victim to LA Splash and their gorgeous selection of shades. I was tempted to go matte-crazy and haul a bunch, but opted to stick to three shades to get a feel for the formula. I went with Ghoulish, Nymph Adora, and Lovegood. Want to see more? Read on!

Fall! I love fall. Summer can go away now. I know, it's not officially fall yet, but the beauty world has moved on from summer and is ready for autumnal textures and hues (aka mattes and jewel tones.) OPI have shaken things up with their slightly unconventional offerings for fall/winter, as their Venice Collection gives us more than the typical fall fare. With twelve new (and permanent shades) plus three limited edition shades, there is something for every polish fan. Want a closer look? Read on!
