Nails inc Black taxi & Floral street

I do love me some black polish and of course white is the perfect colour to go with it especially with the monochrome trend that's hot right now. Cue bold lines, graphics prints, contrasting colours, and textured leather effect polishes (which are definitely on my hit list when I next go shopping).

Today I used Black Taxi and Floral street on my nails and turned my accent finger into the infamous yin yang symbol which I'm a huge fan of.

 For someone with a huge nail polish collection I don't own a whole lot of Nails inc I think the £11 per bottle price tag puts me off but I do have to say I really enjoyed the application process, it was very opaque I only used one coat (could have done two to make it more even on some nails but not necessary). It makes life easier if your using base and top coats, in this case I just used a top coat and I'm very pleased with the results and the polishes themselves. I also love the look of the leather effect nail polishes- the edgy black or nude leather look with skull embellishments are my favourite.
What's your favourite Nails inc polish?
*I was kindly sent these to try out but of course my opinion is unbiased and honest.

Oh hello Nike x Liberty floral High roll blazers

How lovely are these? Now I love heels but also flats just as much. Nike who collaborated with Liberty hence the cute classic purple pepper floral print on these blazers. I look forward to rocking these. I managed to get them in a sale too, happy times.

Pur minerals All that pops Lip Gloss Sticks review.

Jumbo lipbalm/lipstick/lipgloss type things are seriously everywhere and along with the Revlon Just bitten balm stains I have been loving these Pur minerals 'Lip gloss stick collection' since I got them around December last year. I feel like this lovely American brand isn't as well known in England but that's because it wasn't available here until it hit the shelves in Marks & Spencer's beauty departments.
This set has four satin finish colours in a jumbo retractable pencil.
 So we have a hot pink called 'Shocked', the darkest plum colour is 'Desired' the bright red is 'Amped' and lastly the nude is 'Tickled'. Pretty pigmented colours which are buildable too so you can go for softer or bold looks.
And here's a picture with the flash on so you can see the glossyness...
It cost me £24 for this set although there was also an offer on at M&S so I got it even cheaper. It's not available on their site at the moment unfortunately but I'm pretty sure many of the stores still have this set. I think it's a steal because normally just one of these lip gloss sticks cost £16.00 so for an extra £8.00 your getting 3 more!
Overall I'm a definite fan, I'm not a huge fan of lip gloss but these are the perfect texture, they feel more like a glossy lipstick. I find them moisturising, they taste fruity (a pleasant surprise!) the pigmentation is great and I feel like for what they are they last a good amount of time on your lips especially the darker colours such as 'Desired' which is one of my favourites along with the hot pink!

Lush Sunnyside Bubble Bar Review

Lush is my favourite place for gorgeously smelling things. My favourite thing's to get are normally the bubble bars, my favourite is The Comforter which I mentioned here.
The Sunnyside bubble bar is covered in gold glitter and costs £3.65 and it smell's pretty lovely. I wouldn't have picked this up myself as I'm not a fan of glitter in products but as it's Andrea's fave I of course had to try it and fyi the glitter is rather fine.

It's not a overpowering smell but you can definitely smell the 'sweet wild orange' in the bar, there is also lemon and tangerine in it. Crumbled into a hot running bath it just smells devine.

 This bubble bar left me with ton's of bubbles a slight shimmer in the water as the glitter is really fine (lots of glitter left once the bath was drained) and I don't remember the smell lingering around for too long which is unfortunate as I love it!
Maybe next time I'll crumble more into my bath as I only used a small amount but overall I loved this bar!
What is your favourite bubble bar?
