Rose Gold Nails

Hey Guys!

I am officially finished my first year in college, and it's SUMMER TIME! I am so excited to finally have time to blog and film videos!
Today, I thought I'd show you what I currently have on my nails. It's one of the Revlon Scented Polishes in 'Beachy', a gorgeous rose gold shade with a subtle fresh, you guessed it, beachy scent when painted on the nails.

The longevity is pretty good. With two coats, and no topcoat, the polish lasted about three days without chipping, which for me is about average. I also adore the little bottle with the spherical cap, it looks so pretty on my shelves. There are loads of colours in the scented range, so I might pick up another when I go shopping today... we'll see!

Also, I can't not talk about my henna which I think is just amazing! One of my best friends did it for me, and I'm already thinking of all of the other designs I could get when this one wears off.

Have you tried any of the Revlon Scented Polishes?

SoSu Nail Polish Review

Hey Guys!

I'm back today with a little review of Suzanne Jackson (AKA SoSueMe)'s new nail polish range.
I picked up 'Rock Candy', a gorgeous blue-toned pink that I thought would be the perfect Spring/Summer transition shade. Unfortunately, the polish just didn't live up to my expectations.

Firstly, I love the packaging, although my particular bottle was covered in sticky tape, hence the few dog hairs (ew) stuck to the top. But, inside, the product just doesn't work for me. Upon first application, I thought 'Oooh so smooth!' but then adding another coat seemed to make it streaky and the polish just didn't 'settle down' for a nice, even finish. The polish also took an absolute age to dry, resulting in me having to remove it all and start again after waiting half an hour for it to dry, but still getting it all over my black jeans as I was getting changed!

Longevity was the biggest let-down for me with this nail polish as it barely lasted a day before chipping like crazy! I like to test longevity with nail polishes by using them without a top coat, and generally polishes last 3-4 days without any noticeable chips.

Have you tried any of the SoSu nail polishes? If so, how have you found them?

Steely Grey OOTN

Hey Guys!

That feels so strange to type after 2 MONTHS. Yes, it's been 2 whole months since my last blog post! I really have no excuse apart from my poor time management. I was away for 2 weeks in the Gaeltacht, and since then I've been bombarded with assignments, presentations and fun college things like that. One fun thing, and not 'fun' in the sarcastic, totally un-fun way, was the Ball I attended. My course holds a ball every year and being a Freshman, I got to go for the first time! I am currently editing a Get Ready With Me for my YouTube channel, so that should be up by Sunday, if not tomorrow evening.

Anyway, I thought I'd give you a sneak peak of what I wore, and you may have already seen a few pictures on my Instagram, which is the one thing I've managed to keep updated!

I wore this beautiful dress from ChiChi London on Asos which received plenty of compliments ;) I love this tea length style and although I could have done with the size 6, I felt comfortable the whole night long.

My shoes are Carvela by Kurt Geiger and I bought them for my Debs last September. They are fine to walk in, but after 7+ hours in them, they start to pinch just a little (read: a lot).

To see how I did my makeup, check out my video when it goes live!

xoxo, Emma
