New Phone Case

£1.99 from ebay and it's just awesome :D

NOTD x 2

I FOUND IT!!!!!!

GOSH Holographic (no.549) I got the last one in my local Superdrug at the Trafford Centre in Manchester and OMG it's amazing I must've spent about 20 minutes just staring at my nails haha! It was £2.50 which is great and I am on a mission to find another one for a giveaway when I have more followers :)

So sparkly :)

The other NOTD is with ELF.

All nails have "Innocent" on them and my ring finger has "Glitter Glam" over the top. ACE!

ELF Haul...

I placed my very first order with ELF last week and I am sooooo happy with the products I got. I saw that some of the nail varnishes were 33% off and as I'm becoming a little bit of a Nailaholic I got them all. I also got the Natural Lash Kit as I needed a new pair of lashes and for £1.50 I can't complain about them. The last thing I got was the Contouring Blush And Bronzing Powder. I've heard quite a few people mention this as one of the good products from ELF so I thought I'd try it out. Anyways I ordered the products on a Saturday night and it arrived the Thursday after which I thought was good considering they don't sort through orders until Monday :D. So the products were nicely packaged in bubble wrap and nothing was broken so yeah I will definately be placing an order from them again. Here are the photos of what I got.
The nicely packaged items :)

All of my products...

The cardboard packaging of the Contouring Blush And Bronzing Powder (Sorry it's not the right way round guys)

The matte plastic packaging for the product. I liked this as it's very sleek and slim so fits very well into my bag :)

(All the pictures are coming up sideways and I'm not sure why) But these are the blush and the bronzer and I have to say that I love these. They have a bit of shimmer but I don't mind too much and they go on nice and smoothly. 10/10 :D

Swatch of the blush and bronzer

Nail Polish 1 of 8 this is "Glitter Glam" and it's a very sheer gold glitter which looks great over a base colour but I'm guessing that with about 3 coats it'd look fab on it's own :)

This is "Twinkle" and it's a very (unfortunately) sheer clear polish with rainbow glitters in it. I don't think you could wear this on it's own as it is very sheer but over a base colour it's pretty.

This is "Party Purple" and it only takes 2 coats to be completely opaque so I likey :D It's a dark purple with very fine silver glitter in it.

This colour is "Metal Madness" and it's a gunmetal grey with very fine rainbow glitter in it. Again this only takes 2 coats to look good but this polish is one that dissapointed me because of the brush...
As you can see the brush seemed just worn and distressed and no matter what I tried it won't straighten out so it makes applying the polish very difficult as it just gloops up on the end and all drops on to the nail :(
2 coats of "Mint Cream" and I am good to go. The picture makes it seem a lot more blue than it is in real life but it is a true mint green and I love it.

This is "Desert Haze" and it is a lovely brown/nude colour. I likey very much and again 2 coats :)

"Lilac Dream" takes about 3 coats to be completely opaque but when it is it's a really pretty polish
THE most perfect light nude shade ever! 2/3 coats and it's done. It'd be great for a french manicure but I like it on it's own. My favourite polish that I got :)
Last but not least are the lashes. I haven't tried them yet but for what I can tell they look like they will be nice :)

So that's my ELF haul if anybody has any suggestions of other things I should get from them then feel free to leave it in a comment.

Thanks, Amy xx
