Reviews so far 2016

February is nearly here and with it brings the official start of SPILL the beans, my new monthly blog content. Each month I’ll be posting at least 5 different topics which you can read more about in this entry. I’ve been preparing content for it, but in the mean time here’s a mini review of the nail polishes (introduced here) that I’ve tried so far.

I originally tried the purple one first on the right in this image. Unfortunately it seems that it had been either previously opened or never closed properly. It was a pain to open and when I finally got it open the nail varnish was very gloopy and not at all smooth. Worried that this was a sign that the polishes were bad, I tried another colour; the navy blue above. It went on a lot smoother and I had no issues with it. It’s a bit messy because not long after painting them, when I thought they were fully dry, I ended up doing something which messed them up. It does smell very strong – which doesn’t bother me, but my fiancé isn’t too happy 😛

Round 2, I chose this coffee cream colour which I absolutely love. It is such a cute colour and the polish covered really well. There’s a slightly darker colour (see photo above) that I wanted to try badly, however, this one won out.

So far they have been great. I need to try another shimmer rather than a matte one, as the purple was a shimmer one. I have 43 more colours to try so plenty of time 😀 Don’t forget to check out all 48 and tell me what shade you think I should try next!

I really want to try out some of the new make up and I got for Christmas, I’ve just not been feeling up to it. I finally got back to uni yesterday! Today I suffered for it, but the hardest part is done! I am so happy to get back, and the fact that my first class was on CSS made it even more fantastic. I’ve been building and learning how to create since I was 13. I started very basic on Homestead with a click and drag editor, and slowly learned how to code myself. Until recently I’ve never really considered myself a coder; there are so many more talented people that I know and I rely on copy and paste a lot. Yet speaking to my fellow students and watching my lecturer teach us the basics of css, well, I guess I am a coder. I might lack the confidence to go code something other than my own websites, however, I know enough that I could do our group project on my own.

I’ve actually been doing a lot of work on my recently. I run various ones, including some web cliques and website directories. You can view all my sites here and my latest are; Project Clique (a clique promotion site & directory) and Seductive Directory (a website listing for and supernatural sites).

  1. 48 shades for £12 is an amazing bargain! I think you should try the kind of lilac-y pink one next, it’s the second from the left in the second photo down on the other post you linked to. The navy looks really nice too

    1. I know, I was like.. this is too good to be true….. so I checked the reviews and they were pretty positive. I wasn’t expecting the most amazing quality ever for £12. I will definitely check that shade out next 😀 Purple is my favourite so I’m more than happy to go right for the purples, I’m forcing myself to be good 😉
