imPRESS nails

Hey lovelies!

Hope everyone is well!

Today I'm blogging about imPRESS nails.  I didn't find out about these amazing nails until they where part of last months GlossyBox, I didn't get any in my box but seen them on the website and really liked the look of them!  
Currently Boots sell them (as they are from America) and you can buy them instore or online they cost from £7.99 to £9.99.  They come in a variety of block colours, some patterns and there are French manicure ones as well.  The ones I chose are called "Vamp it up".

What makes them unique is they aren't quite a false nail (as they are really flexible) and not a nail wrap they seem to be a cross in-between and aren't too long either.
They come in 12 sizes in the pack, which you just measure up against your own nails then prep your nails with the enclosed prep pad then peel the tab off and stick them on (tab end at the cuticle) press down hard and that's them on, as easy as that!
It took me literally 5 mins to put them on and I put them on Thursday and its now Tuesday and they are still on!

I have totally fallen in love with these nails and already bought more!

What do you think?

MAC Viva Glam Nicki Minaj lipstick

Hey Everyone!

Hope everyone is well and having a lovely weekend!

As I've mentioned before I love MAC make up.  Although expensive it's worth the investment as their products are amazing!.

MAC have a line of products (mainly lipsticks) called Viva Glam with proceeds going to MAC's aids fund.  I already own the previous Viva Glam Lipstick and lipgloss by Lady GaGa, so was excited to hear about Nicki Minaj bringing one out!

Because I had signed up for MAC's newsletter, I received a code to order the lipstick before it went on general sale in the UK, so promptly took them up on their offer!

It's a very bright pink, its meant to be a yellowish pink, but personally I feel, once on its more of a bluish pink.

Although I love the colour, personally I feel it needs to be blotted a few times and abit of lip balm under it or clear gloss over it as it seems to go quite "cakey" on my lips, even so I adore the colour on! (please excuse the awful photo! lol)

The lipstick is £13.50 (like most MAC lipsticks) and can be purchased here.

What do you think? Has anyone else bought this lipstick?
