Now they’re gearing up for their massive Christmas sale, and I’ve got a few of my favourite sale pieces to show you!

The Feeling Good Suede ankle boots are made from a beautifully soft taupe suede and feature a round toe, elastic side panels and chunky block heel. These would be the perfect chic addition to a day outfit. I’d wear them with a cream chunky jumper and plenty of luxe accessories.

New Nails & Arm Candy!

nadia-minkoff-and-red-carpet-manicure

Hi Guys!

I’ve really been getting into gel manicures lately, and I’ve recently been trying out the Red Carpet Manicure set. Red Carpet Manicure sell everything you need to create your own professional manicure in the comfort of your home, and I’ve just started practicing with their  and a couple of their . The shades on the above picture from left to right are – Fake Bake, Make a Statement and I’m So Honored.

Ok so how amazing does Jessie J look here? She’s actually sporting the one of the shades I have – Fake Bake – at the American Music Awards in November. I’ve been given instructions on how this look was created and I’m going to attempt to copy it. It can’t be too hard… right?

jessie j red carpet manicure

Here are the instructions for what I need to do, straight from the manicurist that worked on Jessie, Kimmie Kyees: 

  1. Kimmie used the Red Carpet Manicure Gel Polish Pro Kit to apply Jessie’s gel manicure.
  2. She shaped Jessie’s nails into an almond shape and used Purify Pre & Post Application Cleanser.
  3. Kimmie applied a thin coat of Structure Base Coat Gel to four nails, leaving the thumbs for last and cured in LED Light for 30 seconds.
  4. Kimmie applied a thin coat of RCM LED Nail Gel Polish in Fake Bake and cured  for 45 seconds in the Professional LED Light. Repeated for second coat. For her show time look, Kimmie removed the Fake Bake polish with RCM Remove Kit and then followed the same process: she cured one coat of RCM I’m So Honored, cured for 45 secondsand then painted one coat of RCM Make A Statement, and cured for another 45 seconds.
  5. Kimmie then applied a thin coat of Brilliance Seal & Shine Top Coat Gel and cure for 45 seconds in the professional LED Light.
  6. To finish, Kimmie removed tacky residue with Purify Pre & Post Application Cleanser and applied Revitalize Nourishing Cuticle Oil to hydrate the nails.

So I followed the instructions and this is what I ended up with…

red-carpet-manicure

Erm yeah so I clearly need a bit more practice! In my defence I didn’t have anything to shape my nails with, so I left them as they were. I think the shape is definitely the key to this look! And I may have skipped out one of the coats, as I thought I didn’t need it, but in hindsight maybe that was a bad idea, another coat would have given full opacity and looked a lot better. Never mind though, I’ll just have to keep practicing over the Christmas holidays to perfect my skills! 😀

I would also like to add that even though my nails don’t exactly look amazing, I cannot fault the products at all. Both the polish and LED light were super easy to use – I just need to practice my application technique! The LED light actually has a USB connection too so I just plugged it into my laptop, which really was super convenient. I also really do love the shade Fake Bake, it’s a lovely light warm cream, and it’s one of the few pale colours that doesn’t make my skin look even whiter than it already is!

I also thought I’d take this opportunity to show you my beautiful new bracelet from Nadia Minkoff. This is the Single Stone Bracelet in Iridescent Green. It has a simple silver tone chain, with an amazing iridescent Swarovski cushion cut crystal that changes colour when it’s facets catch the light.

There’s also a pretty Swarovski glass pearl added to match the stone and the fastener is finished with a Nadia Minkoff flower set with a single crystal. I’m looking forward to wearing this out over the Christmas holidays 🙂  It’s described as ‘A friendship bracelet with sparkle and a twist’ I never even thought of it as a friendship bracelet, but it really would make a wonderful gift.

Azuni London Jewellery GIVEAWAY!

Posted on September 17, 2014

azuni-giveaway

Hi Guys!

After recently discovering Azuni London it’s fast becoming one of my favourite jewellery sites. I have the gorgeous Etrusca Necklace – it’s a fabulously intricately constructed pendant, made in 24k gold plate. A stunning 6mm green onyx stone dangles in the centre of an open circle featuring delicate granulation detailing, and the pretty pendant is hung from a delicate gold plated chain. I love this necklace so much, it’s so unusual!

If you haven’t hear of Azuni London, the company was created by Ashley Marshall, who uses techniques such as hand texturing, beading, engraving and oxidising to add a unique edge to his designs with many pieces brought to life with delicate semi precious stones. Ashley gathers his inspiration from many different sources and interprets it into eclectic, individual pieces of jewellery.

There is also a story behind every Azuni collection. The beautifully hand textured Luna pieces have been delicately created to resemble the moon’s surface, whilst the passionate Love Twist range is reminiscent of the tattoos worn by sailors leaving their loved ones to go off to sea. From achingly romantic, via edgy, retro and bohemian cool, there is an effortlessly stylish Azuni collection to suit any mood.

Azuni London would like to give away an item of your choice from their site to one lucky reader. (I know, I’m spoiling you with all these giveaways lately!) To take part in the giveaway simply enter via the Rafflecopter widget below. The giveaway is open internationally and will run for two weeks. Please feel free to me if you have any questions, and good luck! xxx
