Glittery Brows

I've been loving the glittery eyebrow look for quite a while, so I thought I'd give it a go.  There are a few different tutorials on youtube but the version I prefer is this one:  http://youtu.be/5uM8SPJ8fLk

Review: GOSH Nail Polish in Gasoline

 GOSH Nail Lacquer in Gasoline (£4.99, currently part of a 3 for 2 offer) from Superdrug.

After the Ciaté disappointment I was a bit put off of nail polishes, however, on a quick browse in Superdrug I came across this gorgeous looking polish which I felt I had to try and I am glad I did.  It is a gorgeous purple-y colour with little bits of glitter through it although it is not an overly sparkly polish. It does require 2 coats as just one is too sheer for my taste but most polishes require 2 or 3 coats. One they have dried it retains a glossy finish and it lasts without chipping for at least 18 hours (I removed it to mess around with nail glitters but that is a different post). The price was good and this is more the effect I had expected from Ciaté, if I had been as happy with that one as I was with this I would have been quite happy even if it did cost an extra £4.

Recent EOTD Dump

In celebration of the fact that I can wear makeup again, I've been having fun with my collection. These are looks that i've done over the Christmas period, in the second look my brows look really strange, which they didn't in person. I did have them threaded and tinted last week for the first time, it was a strange experience as it was done in the middle of Superdrug and it hurt (unsurprisingly) but it does look tidier and I prefer them a bit darker than they usually are.
