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!

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
