(Nails) Nails Inc - Sao Paulo Street

I wish I had tried this polish out sooner as I think it's now unavailable, it was a freebie with InStyle magazine and I only picked it up as I have a shopping problem with nail polishes, but I love it! I wore it for the first time yesterday and it's beautiful. It looks a little more brown in real life but this is very nearly the accurate colour. It's far lighter than I usually wear, but I think it suits me.

What I Used
Base coat: Sephora Formula X Nail Cleanser & Sephora Formula X Base Coat
Polish: 2 coats
Top coat: Sephora Formula X Top Coat

(Nails) Gelish - Seafoam

I thought I had blogged about this polish before, but apparently not. I have not been wearing gel nails lately but I recently had a craving to wear this and I love it! I think this polish may currently be in the lead for what I wear on my wedding day (a big decision!) but we still have about 10 months to go so we will see. It only lasted a week but I did a very rushed job as I needed to get to the gym.

What I Used
Base coat: Artistic Colour Gloss Soak Off Bonding Gel
Polish: 3 coats
Top coat: Artistic Colour Gloss Soak Off Glossing Gel

(Make-Up) Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Mascara

I don't often blog about mascara because a) I don't like close-up photos of my face and b) I have been loyal to L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes for a long time, but recently I had branched out and ended up disappointed. Until I tried Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde mascara which I loved on first use. 

It comes with a plastic brush which is cleverly designed with straight bristles and also wraparound spheres which are meant to coat and define every lash. I have used this mascara every day for nearly two weeks and even when I am applying it at 6:30 in the morning and am half asleep it doesn't clump my lashes and still looks lovely.

Left: naked eye - Right: Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde mascara

I have quite long lashes but as you can see from the photo they are very pale and it looks like there's nothing there, but the Volume 1 Seconds mascara gave my lashes a really nice effect which lasts all day. Luckily it is easy to remove and comes off with my Soap & Glory Ultimelt without the use for a separate eye make up remover which I am far too lazy for!

This mascara is priced at £9.99 but currently only £7.99 in Superdrug or all Bourjois is on 3 for 2 in Boots. I will definitely be repurchasing this. Have you tried this mascara? Did you love it?
