OPI Hawaii

opi

This spring, OPI is celebrating the island state with a nail polish collection as colorful as the tropical paradise it represents. The twelve nail polish colours of OPI Hawaii include a variety of finishes and a rainbow of hues.

OPI nail polish is 3-free (Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP) though it’s been brought to my attention that some colours contain Formaldehyde Resin, but not all. I was only allowed one sample and it didn’t come with an allergen label so I’m not sure which polishes contain Formaldehyde Resin, but it is okay for you to check the table in store.

OPI have always been creative with nail polish names and these names are no different, with names like, Pineapples have feelings too!, Suzi Shops & Island Hops and my favourite colour Thats Hula-rious!

mint

Thats Hula-rious! is the colour that I chose to test and this was the result,

OPI-Hawaii-event-mani-3It’s a beautiful solid mint shade and it makes everything feel a little bit more like summer.

Price – £11.95

Instagram Favorites

I follow a lot of Instagram accounts, some friends, some readers, but mostly beauty blogs. Everyday I see incredible make up skills and beautiful colours on my feed. I figured I would share some with you.

So, from this point onwards every Friday I will making a blog post on my Top 6 make up looks for that week. I will also link each look to the owners profile so you could have a look at their other looks and even try them for yourself.

I ordered a GlossyBox

GlossyBox_logo

This is just a quick post to let you all know that I made the decision to subscribe to Glossybox. Sorry if I’m a little late on band wagon. For the readers who don’t know what a Glossybox is I will explain.

Glossybox is a company that you  can subscribe to on different plans. I chose the pay monthly subscription, which you pay for before you receive your box as that is best for me. It works out a little more expensive but I’m no good with bills so being able to pay for that month there and then works for me.

Inside the box will be 5 beauty items for you to try. They will select these items based on the information you give them when you sign up. The fact that you get to try out 5 different beauty items every month is pretty damn good for £10. Obviously you have to keep in mind when starting a subscription that there may be some products that you have already used or even some that you don’t really like, This is the kind of risk that you have to take. If I don’t like the idea of something or if I already have given it a go I was considering doing a little giveaway. What do you guys think on that?

The website said that my box will be with me within 4 working days, which to be fair is pretty quick considering I’ve only just told them the beauty products I normal go for and the fact they haven’t even packed the box yet.

Glossybox isn’t the only company to do this, there are loads if you have a look around. I picked this one because, to me, it seemed the best. I will link Glossy box and some other companies that also do beauty subscriptions below.

Too much lush?

Lush-logo

Right, I kind of feel like this post is a bit soon but that it is also needed. This is a kind of ‘sorry for the overload of lush’ post.

I am aware that the only posts that I have published so far are reviewing Lush products. I am sorry for this, i promise that there will be more variety in each of my posts. I do love Lush products, a lot. I probably know a bit too much about their products but this isn’t a Lush review blog, so it will be changing and improving.

I guess as I’m a new ‘blogger’ I am still trying to find my way and figure out what is worth blogging/reviewing. The next post I can promise will be something different. So, WATCH THIS SPACE!

Twilight

Twilight-500x500

I know that this is one of the most popular bath bombs at Lush but have always avoided buying it, I think it’s because of its name. The name Twilight automatically makes me think of the vampire movie and then I start thinking of screaming teenage girls. It’s just a little off-putting.

This christmas however a friend bought me a lush gift box and Twilight was one of the products inside. When I took the bath bomb out of the box it seemed a lot softer that the other bath bombs I have used, I’m not sure if this was because it was kept in a gift box or if it was just generally a softer but it didn’t have a negative effect on the bomb.

If you like to get the most out of products this bath bomb is defiantly the one for you as it is huge! You could easily break Twilight in half and spread it across baths. However, if like me, you’re glutinous with Lush products then go ahead and chuck that massive bath bomb in whole and enjoy the abundance of colours it has to offer.

This bath bomb dissolves rather slow compared to other bath bombs, making it last that little bit longer. its gives off a beautiful swirl of pinks and blues and creates what I consider to be a lot of fluffy white foam for a bath bomb. Once Twilight is fully dissolved it leaves your bath a stunning deep violet colour with tiny specs of silver glitter.

Twilight is described as a night-time bath bomb as its main scent is Lavender. it also contains a mixture off essential oils to help you have a good nights sleep.

I enjoyed Twilight more than I was expecting. I would even go to say it is now one of my favourites. I was really impressed with the colours and the softness the foam leaves on my skin afterwards. I was pretty tired anyway so I’m not sure how well the factors of the bath bomb that are meant to help in that aspect worked but overall I was very impressed.
