NOTD: Broadway Real Life Nails


Today I am wearing the Real Life Petite nails by Broadway Nails. These nails are the French tip ones (known as pink) in the length Real Short.

I love these nails because naturally my nails are not very long or nicely shaped so a lot of effort has to go in to make them look nice. However with these nails I can simply put the glue on them et voilĂ , pretty nails!

I think French Manicures are so simple and classic so work for all occasions. I especially love the fact that these nails do not look really fake and they are not super long so are practical for everyday life (well for me at least, I find it hard having super long fake nails!).

Just a little black and white photo to add to the classicness of French Manicures!!

What's in my School Beauty Bag?

My school is very strict when it comes to not allowing us to wear makeup, however that doesn't stop me from carrying a small selection of beauty items around with me in my school bag (and wearing them!).

This little bag is from L'Occitane
I think that whatever is in your beauty bag should only be the essentials as you don't want to make your handbag/school bag too heavy (and speaking from experience school bags are already being weighed down enough with textbooks and folders!)

Bourjois Healthy Balance Powder and Powder Brush
Maybelline the Colossal Volume Express Mascara
Barry M Kohl Eyeliner, Mac Brow pencil in Fling and Gosh Velvet Touch Eyeliner
Even I'm not strictly allowed to wear makeup I still do, but just very subtle makeup like mascara, eyebrow pencil, powder and occasionally a teeny tiny bit of eyeliner if I really need to.

Benefit Lipstick in Mod Squad
Rimmel Vinyl Gloss in Take a Chance
Nivea Essential Care Lip Balm
Nivea Pearly Shine
Soft Lips French Vanilla Lip Balm
Honey and Lemon Lip Balm
The lip products I carry around are usually only lip balms rather than lipsticks and lip glosses however I sometimes I take this bag with me when I'm not in school so I tend to keep my everyday lipstick and gloss in here as well.

I have quite long hair and another one of my school's rules is that if your hair is past your shoulder it needs to be tied up so therefore I always have to use hair bands and occasionally hair pin. Even though I will always do my hair before I leave for school if my hair band breaks or I need another hair pin I don't want to be caught out so I always carry spare ones. I also carry this mini nail file in case of a nail emergency.

What do you carry around in your beauty bag?

NOTD: Models Own nails

Today I am going to do my first ever NOTD and for anyone who doesn't know what NOTD stands for it means Nails of the Day. About two weeks ago I went to Clothes Show Live, which is a fashion and beauty event held in Birmingham with lots of different brands selling their products and clothes. Models Own had a massive amount of products on sale including a goody bag filled with £65 worth of products for £10. Obviously I couldn't resist this amazing deal and quickly snapped one up. Part of the goody bag was three nail varnishes which you could choose and one that you couldn't choose. Both of the colours I am wearing today are from the goody bag, one I chose and one that I didn't.

The one that I chose was the dark blue colour called Valerian and it is definitely well suited for this time of year as it is dark and sparkly, therefore wintery and Christmassy. The other colour is a special limited edition one for the Clothes Show so it is not available to purchase but it is called Show Stopper 2.

 Models Own is available at Boots and Superdrug.
