RIMMEL London Lycra Pro nail polish

I've tested out Rimmels Lycra Pro nail polish. The colour of my choice was 319 Ruby Me.

Rimmel have designed a new Maxi brush for a mistake free application. The brush was a little odd to use first off but after a couple of strokes the wider brush wasn't so bad. If you are wanting to use this polish for half moon nails, i'd think again. the wider brush would only suit a full coloured nail. It did how ever do what it said and leave a nice, stroke free finish.

Drying time was also quite good. It only took a few mintues and it was touch dry. This is really important for me with a busy family. The formula is suppose to last 10 days. So far im on Day 2 and there are no chips. I'm pretty hard on my nails and would expect a few chips by now.

I was a little disapointed with the solidness of the colour. For me its a little sheer. I ran over with 3 coats and it gave it a fairly descent cover but I can still see through it. The polish was also fairly matte compaired to its counter parts. So if you are after a more vintage matte finish, this is the polish for you. But a glossy top coat easily added some shine.

Overall I was pretty happy with it.

* Priceline have buy 3 for the price of 2 Rimmel products (see priceline for details)

There was a wide variety of pretty colours in the range. Check out Rimmels website for more colours

Hi Dolls,

I've been a tad pre-occupied lately. My beautiful husband returned home from 6mths deployment in Afghanistan. So of course we've had a lot of catching up to do.

For all those that were asking about the phone cover/holder. They are available from Lee Rowan's Garden World at Warners Bay (Newcastle). They were available in a range of colours, shapes and sizes. Prices started from $15.95.

I'm going to do a review shortly on Rimmel's Pro finish, It has a wide brush to make it mistake free and has a a better fomula. So let's see hopw that goes

Update a borring Cardi & turn it into something GLAMOROUS**

Got a tired old borring cardi? Here's how you can turn into into something truely glamorous.

What you will needs:
  • 1 Cardi (colour of your choice)
  • Beads (colour and shape is completely up to you)
  • Thread (same colour as your cardi)
  • Beading needle
  • Sissors

How to:

Before you get stitching work out your design, draw it or tack it out with some bright coloured cotton. The design that I have used here is military inspired. I have used a long narrow bead and small round beads. But you can use what ever you fancy.

Straight stitch Diagram

Thread your needle and tie a knot in the bottom of the cotton to make sure that the thread doesnt pull right through

Using a straight stitch sew your beads one at a time carefully onto the fabric

Try not to show to much of the cotton thread on the top side of the fabric. You just want to show off the beads.

Tie off your thread firmly underneath when you are done.

Making your own is quiet simple as long as your comfortable with hand sewing. Remember to take your time.

Need some inspiration for design? Google "beading Ideas" there is quiet a few websites that have lots of ideas or just look around at typical clothing additions and mimic it as I have done. Perhaps you could stitch on swarovski crystals in a flower shape or even a lace pattern.

I bought this gorgeous little pot of eyeshadow today. It's in the cutest vintage inspired round pot. I just had to share it with you all. For a limited time they will come in parisian inspired pots. "Bourjois has teamed up with the artist and illustrator Nathalie Lété to celebrate the brand’s Parisian heritage with the limited edition collection Rendez-vous à Paris. Each pot in this colourful, romantic and playful collection has its own unique design celebrating famous Parisian landmarks.

The collection, Rendez-vous à Paris, Bourjois celebrates the treasures of its birthplace, the source of inspiration for its collections and creativity. Paris is all about French romance and glamour; a city full of history and surprises, with its cutting-edge designers and unforgettable landscape. But most of all, Paris is a city of two passions – love and fashion." (Quoted from

The 'Little round Pot" eyeshadow range as a wide variety of gorgeous colours to choose from. I picked up 08 'Beige Rose' a shimmery gold skin toned colour. The shimmer is soft, luminous and blendable.  Its a baked formula inside a cute little pot with intergrated mirror and applicator.

They have a huge range of colours, from the dark and sultry Noir Precieux (#07 black) to the gorgeously iridescent Blanc Diaphane (#90 Silver/ highlighter)

For an intense look you can apply it wet and reveal the full pearly and pigmented effect.
