Excel Make-up Show

On Sunday I was up at 8am (early for a student on a Sunday!!)
and on my merry way to meet my cousin, auntie and friend for a day full of make-up
We hopped into Fizzy-Boo (my cousin's little fiesta) and pootled off to the Excel make-up show in Greenwich, just opposite the O2
It was so so busy!
All sorts of companies were exhibiting O.P.I, Jessica, Essie, Crown Brushes, Neals Yard Remedies, Minx, and loads more
It was a bustling environment full of beauty therapists....
I have to say it got a bit over whelming at times
I'm slightly claustrophobic so don't really like crowds
Around 3ish we hopped over the Thames to the O2 and indulged in some Nando's goodness
Om nom nom!!
I had a fab day with the girlies and would love to do it again
So onto the goodies!!

 Crown Brush: Large Stippling Brush
 Crown Brush: Slanted Eyeshadow Brush
 Crown Brush: 28 Nude Palette

 I missed out on the Naked palette and refuse to pay ebay prices
I am however waiting in vain for it to come back in stock somewhere
I saw this and thought for £26 I couldn't really go too far wrong
There's a good mixture of shimmer and matte shades
The ones I've played with are well pigmented and I really enjoy using them
 Seche Vite Topcoat
I've been meaning to get my hands on this for ages
I've used it already and can tell it will be a firm favourite in my manicure routine
 O.P.I Natural Nail Base Coat
£5.70 (all O.P.I polishes were this price)
I thought it was about time I invested in a decent base coat and why not when it was nearly half price!
 Two boxes of pure goodness
 Pink before you leap, La paz-itively hot, Pink me I'm good, Lucky lucky lavender, Not so bora-bora-ing pink, Grand canyon sunset
Teenage dream, O.P.I Ink suede, My private jet, Significant other colour, Mod about you, Bright lights big colour

Expect lots of nail swatches soon!!
 These two colours are on my nails at the moment
Teenage Dream over Mod about you

Just the right amount of tacky 
I quite like pink and sparkly nails, immensely girly
I have been feeling the need to toughen up my outfits to not look like a 5 yr old



  1. Oh I wish I'd known about this, I would have loved to go!

  2. so many OPI nailpolishes! :) I love all of their glittery nailpolishes but my favorite one has to be Metro Chic. :)

  3. great nail varnishes, such pretty colours
    i would love for you to check out my blog and tell me what you think
