So I waited for this to dry and then used the matte top coat. It takes a little while to work once you've put it on your nails but I think the end product is really worth it, leaving you with really different, edgy looking nails!

Fancy rocking your inner K-Stew minus the grumpiness? Well here's a few tips I've made on how to create the smoky brown eyes look she wears so well.
- To create this look I tend to use a mixture of light, medium and dark brown or black eyeshadow shades in graduated tones. Dependent on your eye colour and skin tone, if you have a darker skin tone and darker eyes I think black shades work better whereas if like me you're quite fair and have lighter coloured eyes, perhaps try a brown shade as it won't look as harsh on your skin.
- Apply the dark shade along your lash line or equally you could use an eyeliner to creater a bolder look, the medium shade on the crease, and a light shade up to the eyebrow bone but not beyond. Soften and blend the edges so all the colours blend within each other.
- To open up your eyes so that they appear livelier, place a dot of a light shadow in the inner corner of each eye. It'll also give the appearance of wider, more awake looking eyes.
- When creating the smoky eyes look you could trace the upper and lower lashes with a dark shadow then smudge with a blending brush. To optimize the look, this can also be done over eyeliner. In the photo above Kirsten Stewart opted for a blue eyeliner on her bottom lash line, drawing attention to her eyes

Every year I always tend to say the same thing to people when they ask me what I want for christmas, "I don't mind, anything.. whatever you pick will be nice" and anything else along those lines. However this year, I have changed, I now know exactly what I want and even provided people with the links to websites to get some presents.
Santa, take note!!
|Ahh how cool are matt nails, and to top this its also by Chanel, perfect!!|
|Revlon heat rollers, I think curly hair looks so pretty and glamorous|
|How cute is this bowler hat from Accessorize. This is perfect when you want to rock your inner Millie Macintosh from Made In Chelsea.|
|I'd love Bobbi Brown in Red Carpet|
And pretty much anything from Topshop or Zara!
Thanks for reading, A x

I went out last night for a meal with three friends and I thought, I'd try some of the Nail Rock wraps for the occasion! I've used them once before so I remembered how to apply them. As they have strong adhesive backs it makes it easier to stick to the nails.
I rid my nails of old polish and filed and shaped them to the look I like. Then stuck the right shape nail wrap to my finger nail, pushing it down to make it set and stick.
Tucking the excess nail wrap underneath the nail, I then filed it off.
Et voila! the finished look

Hey everyone, hope you're all well :)
Hiyaaa, hope you're all having a good week!
I got a new package from Urbanista recently, which is always very exciting! Upon the release of their new range of false eyelashes. I've only ever tried false eyelashes once, although I'm lucky enough to have quite long, dark eyelashes anyway, they made my lashes look super long and my eyes looked so cool! Underneath are two photos of the eyelashes from Urbanista, as you can see one pair are encrusted with blue,pink and silver diamantes and the other have a silver glitter line running along the top. Perfect for a dramatic night time look!

Still can't believe this was £2, that's cheaper than Primark!
Recently I thought I'd have a go at trying the lip wraps you can buy. As I've used the nail wraps before I thought how hard can this be, so I picked up some different designs of the Violent Lips design.
I got the red leopard print design, which I thought looked really cool and interesting. I also got The Gold Glitterati;
In celebration of Halloween this year I thought I'd try something a bit different and continue the theme onto my finger nails. I tried to do a Frankenstein style look as you will see!
I used a base coat, a green nail varnish for the colour, a black nail art pen and a white nail art pen. I used Collection 2000's Hot Looks Fast Dry 59 called Look At Me for the base colour for the nails.
For the base coat and the top coat, I used Miss Sporty's base coat, as it'll stop the colour from seeping into the nail and also give it a smooth shine once done.
