Maybelline Forever Strong Nail ~ Mint For Life

At the weekend I took a little trip into town to buy a few bits and bobs and I may have 'accidently' ended up in Superdrug! Of course it would have been really rude of me to leave without buying anything so I picked up the Maybelline Forever Strong Nail Polish in the shade Mint For Life.
 
 
I absolutely love the colour mint and I've been wanting a good mint nail polish for a while so when i spotted this on the Maybelline stand i couldn't not buy it!
 
The colour is very similar to the Essie Mint Candy Apple polish but it's almost half the price!
 
I found this polish amazing! You only need two coats to get a perfect colour - although to be completely honest you could get away with using only one coat if you were in a rush! The polish is really easy to apply and the colour is beautiful! It lasts for around 7 days with a good top coat, just like Maybelline claims it does, or around 3/4 without a top coat.
 
The only issue I've had with this polish is that no matter how much you do to prevent it, it bubbles. However i did find this reasonably unnoticeable when it all comes down to it!
 
Maybelline Forever Strong Nail Mint for Life
 
I'll rate this product 4* and i'll definitely be using it again!
 
Have you used this polish before? What did you think?
 
 
Lots of Love

The Firsts Tag!



This tag was done by beautytwins124 on youtube (twins who are fab youtubers - go check them out) a while back and it looked interesting so I thought I'd give it a go! Here we go ~

First thing you did this morning?

I went on pinterest!

First person you subscribed to on youtube?

I think it might have been zoella? I've been watching her videos since she started so it was probably her!

First tweet?


I've had twitter since I was like 12/13 so I can't remember but it probably had something to do with Ronan Parke!


First Facebook profile pic?


I'm not even going to post it on here because it's so embarrassing!

First crush?

I can't remember that far back!


First best friend & do you still talk?


I had a few best friends when I was really tiny and their names were Rhian, Bethan and Becky. I still talk to Rhian occasionally but we've all moved to different schools (and parts of the world in some cases) so it's been harder to keep in touch.

Theme of your first room?

Well my first room was my nursery that I had until I was like 2? And it didn't really have a real theme I think - just pastel colours.

First camp?

We don't really have camps in the UK so I've never been to one!

First sport you were involved with?

Netball!

First time on stage?

When I did my first dance show when I was about 5? I was a sunbeam and a snow white animal.

First fancy event/ event you had to dress up for?

Probably my aunt and uncles wedding when I was about 2? I was a bridesmaid so I had a fancy dress!

First Halloween costume?

I can't remember ever dressing up for Halloween as anything but a witch! It's the easy option!

First person to text you today?

My mum!

First grade teacher?

We don't have grades in the UK, we have years but my reception teacher was called Miss Bagnell!

First ride on an aeroplane?

When I was about 6 my dad took me to Scotland on a plane so I could experience flying for the first time!

First foreign country?

France when I was about 11?

First sleepover?

The sleepover I had with my friends for my 8th birthday!

First concert?

S Club 7 when I was really really little!

First movie you remember seeing?

One of the Elvis films! My dad is an absolutely huge Elvis fan so I was brought up watching them.

First grown up television program you were allowed to watch?

What do you class as grown up? I remember being excited when I watched Waterloo Road for the first time because my mum had never let me watch it before.

First broken bone?


I broke my arm for the first time when I was 10.

First piercing?


I only have my ears pierced, and I got them pierced when I was 8.

First pet?

When I was born my family already had a dog called Ginny and I had her until I was about 5.

First detention?


I've never had a detention! I'm not really well behaved all of the time but I've always managed to find a way of getting out of getting one.

First bad grade?

Probably my F in my dance theory assessment. I had lots of personal stuff going on at that point so I just couldn't focus on the revision.

First phone?

A second hand nokia!

First Job?

I haven't had a job yet - i'm too young!

First big purchase?

My laptop I think.

First Car?

I can't drive!

First text this morning?

That I sent? I told my friend that I was in the middle of world war 3 with a photocopier - long story.

What is the first thing you do when you get home?

It sounds silly but I look in the mirror! I like to check that I actually looked ok when I was at school - even though thinking about it it's really silly because even if I look horrible there's nothing I can do about it!



I tag all of you to do this tag! If you do it, comment the link to your post in the comments so I can have a peek!

Room Inspiration

I'm always looking for a new way to personalise my room and make it even more special to me, and I think that sites like pinterest and tumblr are the best places to find some inspiration!

 
Here's a few of my favourite room inspiration picture's I've found online ~

P.S: Sorry for the quick and simple post today - I've just started my work experience so i'm super busy! I promise there will be some more interesting posts soon!

June Favourites!

I'm a bit late in writing this post because I had lots on last week, as it was my last week of year 10! It was a fab week but really emotional at the same time! But anyway, on with my June favourites...

 
1 ~ Figs and Rouge 'Coco Rose' tinted lip balm
 
I did a whole review of this lip balm here but I received this amazing lip balm in my June Glossy box and I love love love it! I use this as I would a normal lip gloss because it looks the same, but it also does amazing things for your lips.
 
2 ~ Soap and Glory Mist You Madly
 
I've been using this body spray for about a month and it's my favourite spray ever! I keep one bottle in my school bag (it's great for on the go, and it lasts forever) and one at home, and i'm always using it! It smells absolutely stunning!
 
3 ~ Nivea Raspberry Rose Lip Balm
 
This is the lip balm I use at night and I love it! It leaves my lips so soft and smooth, and I always find it makes it easier to put lip products on after I've used it.
 
4 ~ Rimmel London Stay Matte Pressed Powder
 
I am addicted to this pressed powder! It is absolutely incredible, especially in the summer when my face gets shiny so quickly. It lasts a long time and it's so quick and easy to apply.
 
5 ~ Rimmel London 100% Waterproof Mascara
 
I first brought this mascara a few years ago but for some reason (and I can't remember why) I didn't buy another. Then I saw it in Superdrug a few weeks ago and I decided to buy it, to give it a try again and I absolutely love it! It adds volume to my lashes and it's super buildable! I've also found that it's suitable for both day and night - it's now the only mascara I ever use!
 
6 ~ Boots Natural Collection Clear Nail Varnish
 
As I think I mentioned a few posts back, i'm not aloud to wear nail varnish at school so I cheat and wear clear polish, and this is by far my most favourite polish! It's £1.89 so super affordable and I find that because you only need one coat as it's clear, one bottle lasts ages.
 
7 ~ Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation
 
Yes, this is my third Rimmel product on my June favourites - I love the brand ok? This foundation has great coverage that easily blends into my own skin tone. It doesn't add too much shine and it's not sticky at all.
 
8 ~ Boots Tea Tree and Witch Hazel Cleansing & Toning Lotion
 
This product is fantastic! It smells lovely and it leaves my skin feeling so soft and clean. It doesn't dry your skin out and it reduces spot redness and size. Plus, it's not too expensive!
 
9 ~ Clean and Clear Dual Action Moisturiser
 
I love this product! I've tried so many different acne products that have had disappointing results but this moisturiser has impressed me so much! It keeps my skin soft and smooth and it seems to be helping to clear my skin.
 
 
Which products have you been loving recently?

Soap and Glory Makeup Wishlist

Soap and Glory Makeup Wishlist
 
Soap and Glory has to be one of my most favourite beauty brands! I absolutely love their skin products they smell delicious and they leave my skin feeling so lovely.
 
I've never used any of their makeup products, mainly because i can only buy them from the boots in my local shopping centre and i can never be bothered to make the effort to actually go into town, when there's perfectly good smaller shops 5 minuets away.
 
But recently i went on the Soap and Glory website and i had a look at the make-up products they do! Here's my 'Soap and Glory makeup wishlist'. I have picked out one face product, one lip product and one eye product.
 
Kick Ass Concealer

 
This looks like such an amazing product! It's a sort of three in one product - containing 3 different skin products - a concealer for under your eyes, a concealer for your complexion and a transparent setting powder. I'd buy it in the shade 'Light'.
 
RRP: £10.00
 
 
Lid Stuff - Flawless Finish Eyeshadow
 
I want this eyeshadow palette so much! The shades are stunning! Soap and Glory say it's a "fabulous flawless-finish, super colour 8 hour wear eyeshadow (that won't flake, won't fade and won't crease)".
 
 I love the look of the "What's nude" colour set (shown up there^) but to be honest the other shades "Off the Wall Flowers" (a collection of purple/blue colours) and "Smokey Dokey" (dark smokey eye colours) are stunning too.
 
RRP: £10.00
 
Sexy Mother Pucker Gloss Stick


 
I've seen so many bloggers and youtubers raving about this lip gloss! Soap and Glory say "This super-light, ultra-hydrating lip crayon glides effortlessly onto lips, leaving behind an umissably pretty sweep of creamy, moisture-rich colour & shine."
 
There's five stunning shades - plum jam, fuchsia ristic, nudist, bashful and raplumzel and i really would love to try all of them!
 
RRP: £8.00
 
 
Have you tried any of these products?
 
Lots of Love
