NOTD // Nails Inc St Catherine's Dock & Victoria Road

Today I have a NOTD to share with y'all.  It's fairly demure but the ring finger adds a tadge of bling which livens it up a bit.  Both polishes are from Nails Inc, the pale lilac is called St Catherine's Dock and the lilac/black glitter is called Victoria Road.

As pale polishes go St Catherine's Dock is certainly one of my favourites, so much so that I find myself limiting how often I wear it so I 'save it for best'.  I know.  I'm weird!

What do you think of this mani?  I'm hanging onto pale colours before we're in the depths of winter and darks make their appearance!

August's Picks

There was a few things I was loving in August and believe it or not there is not a lipstick or nail polish in site!  *drops jaw*

First up we have Laura Mercier's bubble bath in ambre vanille.  OH. EM. GEE. This is nothing short of divine and makes bath time feel like I'm living the life of a Kardash.  Amaze.

Next we have a couple of skin care picks... dunno if it's weather or what but my face has felt a tadge drier than norm so I opened up my Kate Somerville Goat Milk moisturiser but to boost it, I've been using The Body Shop's Vitamin E serum underneath and the combo is fab.  Loving both.

Although when I paint my nails I use a quick dry top coat I realised when I had a sort out of my hoarding problems stash I had like 4 bottles of Leighton Denny's Miracle Mist so I've been using it and it just acts as that extra level of SEAL post mani and I really like it.

A hair product... an actual hair tool has made my favourites for August!  An actual electronic device... since when did I get so high tech?!  This is the slim barrel curling tong from Nicky Clarke* (P.S in my head I always get Nicky Clarke and Christopher Dean mixed up... just me?)  Despite being uber thin this works incredibly well!  My hair is long and I can get all my hair around the barrel.  The curls it gives lasts pretty much until I next wash my hair so it's a bit of a winner!

What beauty thangs have you been loving recently?

Also... if you've not tried LD's crystal top coat... you NEED to.  It's divine!

Nail Bling // Crystals

Sometimes you just need to embrace being a girl, paint your nails and whack on some TOWIE like bling... 

I love a ring finger mani that clashes but matches at the same time and this fits that bill.  The coolness of the blue clashes with the warmth of the peach but they are also cute pastel shades so they work together.

The peach is Apricot Blush and the blue is Cool Blue; both from Leighton Denny.  I find LD's pastels to be fab coverage wise... you don't get any streaking or the dreaded VNL!

Are you a fan of crystals on your nails?  I am.. granted they're not that practical and a bit OTT for the office but Gawd I do love 'em!

Elemis QVC UK TSV // Sunday 7th September 2014

For all the Elemis fans out there I thought I'd post a little look at the upcoming TSV which is on QVC UK this coming Sunday.

It will be on auto delivery so no easy pay and it will be £58.56p.

If you're regular PCMC user, this could potentially make sense for you as it also includes the advanced eye treatment and the new pro-collagen super serum.
