Models Own: Haul!

Hello my lovlies :)
Today I have for you a Models Own haul. A little while back they had a 6 for £20 code, I couldn't pass up the chance, and unsurprisingly to most all but one are glittery! 

Here is Obsidian, it's a beautiful black with chunks of gold glitter with little glitter pieces. It has a velvet lid as it's part of the 'Velvet Goth' range.

Here is Valerian, a stunning dark blue base with medium and small pieces of blue glitter. I'm currently wearing this as it was the big 50th anniversary of Doctor Who yesterday! Did you watch it? It was amaaaazing! This has a dark blue velvet lid as it's part of the 'Velvet Goth' range too.

Here is the ever so popular, Utopia. I thought it was going to be a lot more neutral but it's a sort of dusky pink colour. Beautiful none the less! I bought this to wear with the next to glitter polishes.

Here is Snowflakes. It is super super stunning! It's got big shards or iridescent glitter. It looks like huge shards of ice! So beautiful. This is part of the Wonderland collection, couldn't pass this up! Can't wait to wear this at Christmas.

This is Jack Frost, it's packed full of iridescent glitter. I'm considering wearing this for Christmas too, decisions! 

This is Mermaid Tears from the Splash collection. I could not, not buy this! I love mermaids :) It super super pretty. It's like a summer version of Snowflakes. It's in a pale purple base, which the camera doesn't pick up. It has big blue shards of glitteryness. :)

Now this all should of come to £30/£25 (if you buy 5 on the website you save £5), but it was just £20 with the code! Even with just a £5 it was worth it in my eyes. I will post up swatches soon. If you want to see any reviews then let me know! 

I'm not to sure what will be next. maybe the E.L.F Baked eyeshadow palette from my haul?
Until next time! 

Here is a photo of my little helper, Milo :) When ever I'm blogging in the conservatory he always comes to see what I'm up to! I'm a bit confused as to where he found that plastic on his nose!

George: Limited Edition Glitter Polishes Haul & Swatches!

Hello my lovlies! 
Today I have for you a little glitter haul :) 
A couple of weeks ago, George at Asda bought out 4 new limited edition glitter polishes, only 7000 have been made of these so when they're gone, they're gone! 
As a sucker for glitter I couldn't not buy them ;) so here they are;

Ruby Slippers
A beautiful multi-sized red glitter polish, now I would use this as a top coat, however they tell you to use 2-3 coats, and so I have shown you what it looks like with 3 coats. It doesn't exactly cover fully, I'm not too sure how this would dry if you put any more layers on? This will be fab for Christmas! Then again, all these polishes would be. 

 This is another matte glitter polish that looks like L'Oreal Confetti, however, this has tiny tiny little flecks of green glitter, which you can just about see in the close up of the bottle. This makes it a lot less 'flat'. They again suggested 2-3 coats with this, however, it doesn't exactly cover well, I think this looks better as a single layer top coat.

Ice Queen
This definitely fits the name! It looks like little shreds of multicoloured ice, a sure Christmas party top coat! I again did the 3 layers as suggested however, it's not really my cup of tea like that, and it didn't really dry very nicely. I think it'll be better just having one coat and then sort of patting on where you feel necessary.
Glitter Bomb
A three sized glitter polish consisting of pink, light blue, green, silver and gold. It seriously is a Glitter Bomb and I'm in love! It looks like confetti from a pinata or like when you see them parties on telly with the disco ball and then all the glitter comes down over the dance floor ;) I think this has to be my favourite!

Now all these polishes are £3 each which is a good buy in my eyes! 
I can't wait to try them all out. Let me know if you want any reviews :) 
I'm also thinking of doing a dupes post as I have a similar polish to Ice Queen and I have the L'oreal Confetti which is quite obviously close to Dotty. Let me know if you've seen any others? 

Until next time!

Hello my lovlies! I am back..
I'm sorry I've had a rather big break (again!?), a lot has gone on, we recently had a new conservatory built, I got another job, ones of my dogs died :( and I got engaged, amongst trying to do my nail course(And not really finding time for that either) so I have been very busy!
