Golden Ibiza Glitter Gradient

I’ve seen quite a few posts bobbing about on various blogs recently of glitter gradients and have been really keen on trying my own. The challenge here was to choose the colours I wanted to use without copying anything I had seen before…

Ibiza mix by Models Own is a glitter I picked up a few weeks ago whilst visiting my parents. My sister and I had decided to hit Boots in the hopes of finding a fun new polish and I ended up coming home with several. As usual.

I chose to use two different golds as I have used this combo before and knew that they really compliment each other well!

Grand Opening Giveaway: Max Factor Fantasy Fire

So here is the first giveaway!

I was going to wait a while to create one, but haven’t for three reasons. Firstly, I am far too impatient to wait for anything. Secondly, I saw this nail polish while shopping yesterday and couldn’t help but buy it again. And thirdly, I want to make these giveaways a really regular thing as I want them to be at the heart of the blog, and therefore at the beginning!

Review: Max Factor Max Effect Mini Nail Polish – Fantasy Fire

FIRST POST. Scary times. Bear with me.

As I’ve been getting this blog up and running over the last few days I have been trying to decide which nail polish I should use in my first post. I’ve bought so many nail polishes in recent weeks that am STILL yet to use so it was a harder decision than you think. Really.

Plenty of huffing and puffing later I settled on this. Fantasy Fire made by Max Factor.

I bought this nail polish just last weekend from Boots simply because my sister told me it had sold out ‘everywhere’.  No matter how much of an exaggeration that was, I NEEDED IT. It was only £3.99 so I snuck it into my basket and took it home as my own.

The bottle itself seems incredibly small, but you as it is part of the Max Factor ‘Mini’ collection, you can forgive that. The colour in the bottle however, it AMAZING. It is sort of purple with a holographic glitter with a weird redish-pinkish-goldish-greenish shimmer. If you get my drift. Although, I’m not sure imagination could do it justice.

On application, this nail polish needs at least two coats. When I applied the first coat, it was immediately disappointing and it ruined five minutes of my day. After I had done the second coat though, it was actually quite pretty.
