Rimmel London Lasting Finish Nail Polish Review



















This week i decided to review another nail polish i bought recently from Rimmel London the lasting finish nail polish in "Double Decker Red 030" on sale for $2 AUD which is a steal from the usual $14.95 AUD it can cost in some stores. I chose to get the double decker as many of you will know i was born in North Yorkshire and as such love all things british including double decker buses, which i dearly miss due to not been able to surf in the aisle on the top deck going around corners anymore haha. 
It took me a few days to actually get off my rear and take my old polish off and test out this product as i have been busy and i will admit kind of lazy and also a little bit poorly recently, but here are my pros and cons for this product.

Pros:
  • Great amount of pigment in the product so the colour is bright even with only one coat
  • The brush is a good thickness and didn't hold too much product  
  • The polish dried completely within 3-5 mins 
  • The bottle has good grip on the lid making it easy to open and not to spill
  • These polishes regularly go on sale in places like Coles, Woolies and Kmart so are not too expensive
Cons:
  •  The regular retail price is pretty high
  •  When i first bought it the polish was inside wrapping that was hard to open
From now on i want to start giving products i review a "Happy Sam Rating" out of 5, with 1/5 been horrid and a 5/5 been melted chocolate and Netflix good, In using this scale i would like to give this product a:  4/5 Happy Sam Rating
I definitely reccomend this product and i will be buying more when i can,
Thanks for reading my lovelies
Bye for now xx

Purple and Black Hair


Recently I decided that I really needed to revamp my hair, boost my confidence for starting my course next week so I decided to buy some manic panic semi permanent hair dye in purple haze and fuschia shock to tint and give a purple/ pinky hue to my hair and I also had my sister-in-law dye under my fringe and the under layer of my hair with a permanent blue black hair dye to add depth. 
Whilst using the manic panic you MUST wear gloves and be extremely careful not to get it anywhere it is not supposed to be like on the tips of your ears and face and fingers as I now have purple tint to my nails and ears as I didn't quite follow this rule strict enough haha. I decided to leave the dye on for just over an hour and the results are great I love my new hair.

Sally Hansen's Diamond Shine top coat / base coat review

Recently on a visit to the shopping centre with the hubby we came across a discount bin filled with nail polishes etc and I saw this top coat (it can be used as a base and top coat). I have been meaning to invest in a new top coat for a while and I have heard great things from this brand including longer wear and less chipping, it usually retails for around $16.95 AUD in places like Kmart but due to broken packaging this bottle was only $10 AUD yay for bargains.
When I got home I used the product straight away and found a few pros and cons for the product;

Pros:
- Fast drying 
- Easy to open 
- The product increased the length of wear of my polish from 3 days to 7 days (with minor chipping)
- This product is sold in most stores including Kmart, Woolworths and Coles
- Added great shine to my polish 

Cons:
- The brush is long and kind of clumsy
- I found the products consistency kind of runny 

Overall I really enjoyed the product and will be using it every time I paint my nails from now on and definitely recommend you guys try it out if your ever in search of a new top coat/ base coat

Thanks for reading my lovelies
Bye for now xx

DIY Customized Shirts

In today's post i am going to run through a couple snazzy ideas on how to customize your shirts; you can use old baggy stretched out shirts or even a shirt that you picked up from K-mart for $3 a pop. In this Case i used option B.


Idea 1: Acrylic Paint
To make the first design i basically splatted paint on one side of the shirt and then folded it in half to create an inkblot test effect    






To make the second design i just decided i wanted to make a shirt with an evil pop tart on it so i painted it haha
















Idea 2: Print your own iron on transfers

For This idea you just find an image you want on your shirt, print it shiny side down on iron on transfer paper using an inkjet printer (not a laser printer), Cut out the image as close to the edge as you can, Peel off Backing, Place where you want the design with the grease proof paper on top, Using an iron on high setting apply heat evenly over 30 secondsish and finally once it has slightly cooled gently peel off the grease proof paper to reveal your design

Thanks for reading hope you enjoyed this post
