Hiii! Are all you guys in the UK loving the weather? I haven't worn black in months so I am very happy to feel so summery! I popped to my local high street today with a few errands (cut keys, pick up packages, visit the bank, etc) and I also had a little makeup shopping list. I want a few Sleek things but it turns out my local Superdrug doesn't stock the brand, so I hit Boots to check out their things and they're doing 3 for 2 across makeup! I wanted the Collection 2000 Lasting Finish Concealer and the 17 Beehive lipstick, and I had a little look for Barry M's new peach polish and spotted this.
I wasn't really into the black nail effects as I think leopard looks better and the effect isn't really great itself, but it's not like I've tried this so I got the polish in the 3for2 deal. I quite like it! I know I haven't done a very good job but people on YouTube have gave me some great tips. It was a good coincidence that I was wearing Revlon's Blue Lagoon which looks fab underneath! However I think the novelty will wear off fast, so I'll give it to my sister, who liked the black one before, or sell it on as I know it's going to sell out. I saw it in my local Boots but not the nearby Superdrug, so I'd check your Boots fast!
On top of the 3for2, Boots are doing the £5 facial skincare voucher!! I LOVE this Sanctuary hot cloth cleanser, much more than Liz Earle's, and it comes with a cloth too so if you get the voucher, it will only be £5.20! I have another voucher but I'm keen to hunt down the Oilatum moisturiser and then I don't really need anymore skin stuff. I also got an electric toothbrush, not sure why that is in the photo!
The benefits of living near a cheapie highstreet are all the discount shops, and I got some Poundland bargains. I can't buy too much as I will have to bring it back to Manchester and liquids are heavy, but I got some shavers for only £1 (of course, it's Poundland!) and also these gems which I'll use on my nails. I got the Carmex from Superdrug but Poundland does discount Rimmel/Miss Sporty/Revlon/etc and I got this Maybelline polish with sequin hearts. Lots of Asian nail art has sequins actually inside the gel nails when the gel is clear, so I'll try and imitate that with this polish hopefully!
I'm getting my haircut tomorrow so I'm excited to hopefully get my hair out of my eyes! I need some kind of fringe/shape around my face. I also made a little video below showing the nail polish when it's first put on xx
