There is nothing worse than nails on a chalkboard, but what about a chalkboard on your nails? I absolutely love the idea of this, think it could even be a cute way to show the world how you are feeling by writing little notes on your nails. UK nail company Ciaté which brought the caviar and velvet nails are making the most of our nail obsession and are trailblazing the industry with their new “Chalkboard Manicure” kit.
I am dying to try this new kit which includes a matte black polish, four nail art pens that have a chalky finish, a matte top coat, and an inspirational look book. The great thing about this kit is that it emulates a chalkboard in so much as you can use the nail art pens to draw designs, if you fancy a change, you can rinse off the designs with water and try something else. When you are happy with the look, or if you want to make it longer lasting you can use the matte top coat to seal in your design.
I was reading the Pixiwoo blog recently when I saw a review of these oddly shaped tweezers, I read on with interest and spectisim. They seemed to like them anyway, so I was delighted when Barbara got in touch and asked if I would like to try them.
I must say I was presently surprised. I am not one for plucking my own eyebrows, preferring instead to leave it to the professionals. I am a while between visits, so it was the perfect opportunity to try the latest advances in tweezer technology out on my rather bushy unruly brows.
I found that it is super sharp and precise, I was able to only pull out the exact hair that I wanted ensuring that I didn’t accidently overpluck. I also found the grip and handling of the tweezers very comfortable and ergonomic. This is the next generation of tweezers and I am impressed.
I highly recommend them and they have taken firm place in my kit. Pixiwoo also recommended them for applying false eyelashes. I am more of a hands on person when it comes to lashes, but if you prefer tweezers, these might be handy as the wider section makes it easier to pick them up.
Let me know what you thin and whether you will be trying them.
To celebrate 300, 000 views of my blog I have decided to do a big blog giveaway! I would like to give something back to you guys and so am giving away a whopping €1000 of top make-up and beauty products. I was going to do one big prize, but the consenses on facebook was that people would prefer it broken into smaller prizes thus having more chances to win.
Hope you are keeping well. This has been a fantastic year so far and I feel like it is just whizzing by! It has seen me travelling alot over and back from London a few times as well as Marbella! In February one of my trips was for the Professional Beauty Awards, I was a finalist for the Make-up Professional of the Year UK & Ireland. I will tell you more about that next time. While I was in London, they asked me to be a floor judge for the Warpaint Professional Beauty London Competition with fellow make-up artists Gary Cockerill and Paul James Merchant. Gary is the Warpaint Ambassador and organised the whole makeup competition as well as the criteria for judging.
