If you've seen many of my Instagram photos or read my blog posts over the last few months, you'd know just how obsessed I am with nail varnishes and well.. anything to do with nails. You'll also hopefully sympathise with my lack of nails at the moment (I'm crying inside when I look at my little stubby fingers) I'm trying so hard to grow them back as I did the last time Acrylics ruined them! As you can see in the photo above, I'm wearing stick ons, as my nails were so short and thin when I attended the #BloggersFestival.
At the event, there was a little nail stall with two lovely girls applying a wide range of IZ Beauty of London Designer Nail Wraps to bloggers ring fingers. With 20 different designs to choose from, You'll be more than happy with the range and selection of designs. They've got everything from bright and colourful to simple and understated. I can honestly say.. I want them ALL!!
These three in particular I LOVE.

They're designed to be compatible with all types of gels so can be sealed into gel nail varnish with precision. They're easy to apply, with the help of the included nail file to neaten the edges, and just as easy to take off. They dissolve easily with acetone based nail polish remover or just peels off if placed on top of glossy nail polish.
At only £6.50 per pack (20 wraps), you'd be a fool not to get them! I just wish I'd picked up a few more packs at the event. Love Love Love these.

Needless to say.. I polished off the cupcakes and wine that came in the goodie bag...
After visiting the Lee Stafford stall at the event, I got some great hair products for dry, damaged or coloured hair. I use them almost every day after washing my hair to give it that extra protection and an added shine. Not to mention the fruity smell it leaves on my hair. I've given the colour treated hair to Kirsty as her hair still hasn't recovered from the extensive bleaching.
A brand I'd not yet discovered; Oriflame had slipped a lovely lipstick-come-lipgloss-come-lipbalm all -in-one! Amazing! Its a triple-core lipstick that not only colours your lips a beaut shade, but also adds a shimmer and moisturises your lips. But more on that in another post.
Cellulence is a product I haven't yet tried but will be starting their phase two in the next few days. They provided small samples of their concentrated body cream that firm and moisturise the body.
Also at the event, were two lovely girls applying their IZ Beauty of London nail wraps to blogger's nails. I went for the most colourful wraps I could find and asked the rep to show me how to apply them. She applied them to my ring finger. With complimentary shades, this colour pop would look amazing.. Just need to wait for my nails to grow back again (ruined them with acrylics again.. I know.. When will I learn!) they're shorter than short at the moment so am not drawing any attention to them so am keeping them plain as plain can be!
Urban Outfitters were also at the Bloggers Festival and were promoting the Fujifilm Instax 8 - Which I want so bad, but can't afford at the moment *sob*

These are my most recent purchases. I went shopping in Milton Keynes with my friend and Debenhams had a 10% sale on so I pretty much got the blush for free.. (or so they told me, I haven't bothered doing the maths).
I lent my powder to one of my friends ages ago, along with my powder brush (not sure why, I'm too generous) and I haven't seen them since, so I needed a new powder that would actually get rid of the shine. I feel that even though the Studio Fix gives full coverage, it leaves me quite shiny. This Blot Powder / Pressed is great to get rid of shininess. It's not good coverage wise, but I didn't buy it for that purpose. I bought it in Medium Dark. The only thing I don't like about it is the little puff that comes with it.. its too rough and well.. they harbour bacteria so I don't like using them. I use my Real Techniques Powder Brush that I bought in Boots. I give that a regular clean so it's not as gross.
