Almost 2014

I can't believe it's almost 2014. Feels like 2013 has gone so fast, I think this hear has been a good year for me. I started a blog, got a new cat, did well in my sub diploma and had a generally good year. 
In 2014 there are a few New year's resolutions that I want to make.
1. To post 2 or more posts a week.
2. Be healthier, I know everyone says this but I don't mean going on a diet, I mean not eating/drinking so much fatty/fizzy sugary foods. I'm not going to refuse the odd chocolate biscuit, but I am going to make my meals healthier.
3.Not to stress so much. I'm one of the biggest stessers, I get stressed about going to college some days and in 2014 I'm hoping to go to university so I need to stop worrying about the little things and enjoy them. 

I hope you all have an amazing new year and I'll be posting a "what I got for Christmas and my birthday" post soon.

Elegant festive nail combo

We all know that I love Barry M nail polished and I really like the nail jelly's, I was doing my nails and then the two that I put together I thought looked really elegant and festive.

How I did this was so simple and I really thing it looks so nice especially if your doing your nails for a Christmas party. (you'll have to excuse my messy nails) This would really look great with a red dress and some nude heals.

Using only two polishes (well three if you count the top coat). The first on to apply is Lychee, which is such a lovely colour and I really like the jelly formulas because there are so opaque. You only need one good coat of this, then once that's dry add the glitter and surprise is called Ruby Glitter.
Last just add your top coat and your all done! There you have some pretty, festive nails.

B. Precise Gel Eyeliner

 When I was in superdrug I was looking at all the different make-up brands and I came across the brand B. Id never really taken much notice of this brand before and for £6.99 I picked up this gel eye-liner.
Now I must admit that I don't use eye-liner that often. I love the way eye-liner looks liquid or gel.
I'm just not that good at putting it on myself so 90% of the time I wont wear eye-liner.

 This one looked great because it has everything you need to create a nice eye-liner look. I especially like how this has a breakdown on the back of the box for beginners. I also like that its dermatological approved and Opthalmically approved (which means that it's safe for contact lens wearers)

I do really like this eyeliner, my only niggle with it is that is says "HD colour finish" I don't think the colour pay off is as good as others, but if you like to set your liner with Black shadow then it wont be a problem.
 As for The "24 hour wear" claim im not really sure about because I don't tend to wear my make-up while I sleep, but it definitely lasts a good 10 hours. After this swatch I did try to rub it off and I couldn't get it off. You will need a make-up remover to take it off without rubbing at your eye's. 

I have used this brush to apply the liner several times and I did on the swatch above and I do think the brush is quite good, It doesn't drag, its not too soft and its not too hard. It's just right (pun intended)
