Review: modelsown- Blubblegum

Hey! today I decided to do another nail polish review on the modelsown Bubblegum from the Ice Neon collection. I thought that this would help some you make a decision on whether to buy this product or not, especially if you are a lover of nail polishes like I am. Apologies for the lack of posts these past two weeks its just that my computer was not allowing me to upload pictures, which is a definite no no in my books but now that its back on track I can blog a lot more now! 

I was really attracted to this collection: 1) because I have really been loving neon's these past few months and 2) because they are awesome for the summer time. I have been switching from this to the Barry M gelly nail paints this summer. I wrote all about the Gelly range from Barry M in my previous post if you would want to have a look at that. When I first decided to get this nail polish I thought it was going to be quite sheer and not opaque enough, to my liking. I was sooooo wrong about that, the colour pay off is incredible one coat of this and you are good to go, I have to say though it does dry matte so if you are not into that you can always just add a top coat which is what I do for the shine factor. It has great staying power for about 4-5 days which is a lot better than some others that I own. The price is much more the average nail polish price at £5.00. The packaging has a frosted finish and the aim of this was to be able to put it in a refrigerator, this is so that the fluoro can keep its brightness this does not affect the nail polish in any way I have kept mine in fridge ever since I bought it and it still works just fine, the consistency has not thickened at all as I though it would. I would have to give this product a 3/5 , I would have preferred the polish to have a shiny finish and for the price to be a little lower, other than that I don't really have anything negative to say about this!
I hope this quick post helped some of you. I talk you in my next post!

Review: Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint by Barry M

Hey guys! today I am going to be reviewing the fairly new range of nail paints by Barry M. I do not own a lot of nail polishes by Barry M, the only one that I had before I bought two from this range was one from the magnetic range that came out months ago so when I heard that this new range was going to be a gel like formula I had to go out and get it, especially after I did some research on the product and found that they had so many different, unique colours that I didn't own already. I only have two, Prickly Pear and Blueberry those were the two that stuck out for me the most especially for the summer time.
Prickly Pear and Blueberry

Now on to the actual product, the formula of the nail paint is no different from any other nail polish in my opinion. However the nail polish does have a very shiny finish which is what gives it that gel nails type of look. It has amazing staying power compared to some of the other nail polishes that I own, lasts up 5 days without chipping with top and base coat. Some of my other nail polishes last up 2-3 days with top and base coat which is really disappointing.
Prickly Pear is the one that I am currently wearing and I have to say it is my favourite out of the two only because I feel like it goes better with my skin tone. My mum did think that I was a little strange for picking these two because she thought that they were very similar, I do see where she's coming from but on the nails they look completely different (the pics don't really do it any justice).
Overall I think this product is really good I think it is completely worth the price which is £3.99 and I would give it a 4/5 the only thing that stopping me from giving it a 5/5 is that I do wish the formula was a bit thicker, other than that I'm completely in love. I am definitely planning on getting some other colours that I've had my eye on such Lychee, Green Berry and Dragon Fruit.
I would love to know which ones are your favourites, if you own any or if you are planning on trying them out. Feel free to leave any comments!
Hope you enjoy the rest of your day! :-)

I Heart Summer Tag!

Hey guys! I'm finally getting the chance to do the I <3 Summer Tag! I am really enjoying my summer holiday and I hope you are too! I have been tagged by the lovely RazMaTaz- Girl otherwise known as Tasmin.

Soooo first question:

1. Favourite bronzer for summer?
    The bronzer that I have been using this summer is Bourjois bronzing powder in Olive. I have been using this bronzing powder for about 4-5 months now as a contouring powder and I will definitely be re-purchasing!
2. You're relaxing on a hammock on a tropical island, what would you be sipping on?
Erm... this is a tough one, I think I would be sipping on any form of coconut water. (I love it)
3. Favourite summer lipstick?
I do love my staple red lipstick from Barry M but this summer I have been wearing a lot of this pink lipstick by cosmic kisses, its a lot like the chubby sticks from Clinique.
4. Pool or Beach?
Definitely the Beach, back home in South Africa my family and I have a beach house, so I kind of grew up living near the beach.
5. Summer = crazy hair, what's your must have styling product?
My natural hair is wavy/curly and during the summer I don't really like using my hair straightener so instead I just use V05 plump it up spray after I get out of the shower and then let my hair dry naturally and that usually leaves me with really nice beachy waves.
6. Sun bathing or Fake tan?
Well.. I'm Indian so I don't really need to get any browner haha.
7. Favourite summer nail polishes?
I've been really loving the Barry M Gelly nail polishes this summer I have Prickly Pear and Blueberry. I will go into them with a bit more detail in a review post, soon.
8. Any Summer traditions?
I don't have any summer traditions unfortunately but I should definitely make some.
9. Favourite summer scent?
I'm still wearing my Britney Spears radiance which I love and I wear a few others which are tropical summer sprays from boots.
10. Favourite BBQ food?
I don't really have a particular favourite. I do however really enjoy BBQ food in general.
11. Favourite summer proof makeup?
Maybelline 24hr stay foundation is definitely a product that stays on forever and does not melt which is a definite must in the summer months.
12. Any summer vacations planned?
I do not have any summer vacations planned but I was planning to see some of my friends in Guernsey which is another island not too far away, whether or not that will plan out, depends on what I have going on.
I hope you enjoyed reading this as much as enjoyed typing it! and enjoy whats left of Summer 2013!
