Did you all watch the Oscars the other day? I did because where else am I going to see Ryan Gosling live for 3 hours?? Since it doesn't look like I'll be flying off to Hollywood, living the dream anytime soon, I got myself all glammed up and sparkly with the newest MeeBox edition called Gatsby. There seems to be a rather annoying theme with me and film inspired MeeBoxes. It turns out, I haven't seen any of them! Remember what happened with the Wizard of Oz box? Let's not even go there. However, the Great Gatsby apparently has Leo in it and that's about as good a reason to watch a film as it gets. Enough chatter, let's have a look at the goodies! This month we got 3 polishes and 2 nail art products.
If you've been with me for a while then you know that striping tape is pretty much the reason there's a word 'furious' in my blog's name. It's just so fiddly and I can't even remember the last time I used it! Having said that...a striping tape that is metallic AND doesn't need to be removed? Um, OK then.
If you follow me on Instagram then you know that I finally got the chance to see some proper winter weather and it was great...for a day or two! As soon as I went outside, -12°C made me lose my sense of smell but at least I got to see some snow. And it made me wonder...
Believe it or not, in 3 years of running this blog I have never done a nail art wheel, not even to practice. To do a design once is usually quite enough for my extemely limited patience levels, thanks a lot! Still, with Valentine's Day fast approaching I decided to put together a few designs if you're stuck for inspo this year.
Ah, Valentine's Day! The day where all the lovers in the world shower one another with gifts and spend the evening eating a romantic dinner by the candlelight. Yeah, who cares! This year, MeeBox invites you to celebrate Galentine's Day and I'm in! The January edit has everything you need for an epic pamper session with your girlfriends. Think painting nails, indulging in treatments and cocktails all day long. The latter, sadly, not included in the box. ;)
The shades I'm about to show you have been kicking around the internet for some time now but I couldn't resist. Cirque Colors added six more creme polishes to their Metropolis Collection and they are simply stunning! Let's start with my favourite.
Let's talk snow. We haven't had any for the past 2-3 years so I got the shock of my life last week as I woke up to the first snow this winter. While I was too excited thinking if I should get my sledge out or build a snowman, the entire country was brought to a standstill. Did I mention it laid for about 2 hours? Yep, an inch of snow can do that in the UK! So no snowman for me but I suddenly realised that I totally forgot to show you my winter nail art that I did a while ago. Let's have a look!
Happy New Year! Did you all have a good night? I'm pretty sure my neighbours spent a year's worth of wages on fireworks so I had a pretty amazing view. Now that you have (hopefully) cured your hangover, let's talk about some unfinished business from 2016, the December Meebox review! This time the goodies in the box were inspired by the Wizard of Oz and we got 7 products as opposed to the usual 5, just in time for Christmas! I think I need to confess something before I start with the review....I might be the only person on the planet who hasn't in fact watched the Wizard of Oz. I kinda get the idea now (thank you, Wikipedia!) but surprisingly, googling the Wizard of Aus didn't get me anywhere. Yep, I know, clueless! Now that that's off my chest, let's have a look at the box's contents.
I am fully aware that Christmas is a time to go OTT with literally everything. Christmas jumpers, PJs, hats, decorations, fairy lights, the whole lot. Nails definitely fall into that category but sometimes it's nice to switch things up a bit and go for something a little subtle. Today I want to show you my 'grown up' version of a Christmas manicure that won't blind you with glitter but will still (hopefully) get you in the festive spirit.
Well, this is just simply not on. It's about a week until Christmas and this is my first Christmas post! It's my favourite time of the year and believe me when I say that I crammed just about as many candles, Christmas trees, wreaths, fairy lights, baubles and festive cushions as I could into my one bed flat. Unfortunately, with a relatively new job, college, breaking my laptop AND iPad and now the news that my parents are coming for Christmas (cue mad cleaning spells), blogging just had to take a step back. But not to worry, I still have a few days left to show you all the festive designs I've been doing meanwhile.
