OPI 'Alpine Snow' Nail Lacquer

I've shared this nail lacquer before - it's OPI 'Alpine Snow' which is a simple bright clean white colour. Yes it reminds me of snow and the colour of my car which is also called 'Alpine'! Coincidence much? I think not when I picked it up I was like heyyyyyyy that matches!!!

What I am sharing is the shape of my nails today 'Squoval'- I use to have super square nails, then I got into pointed or rounded nails because they suit my fingers more, but today when I chose white as my polish colour I decided to have my nails filed down short as they were breaking more easily so I thought they needed to be reshaped and have a new gel coat applied on top to keep them staying strong.

And so I have 'Squoval Nails' - not too square but slightly oval/rounded off as well. I think it compliments the white colour better as it can look quite harsh when too pointed or too square.

Looks so pretty I've been glaring at my nails all day! White is such a clean colour I love it!

All Black Everything with a POP of Color

Here's a look I wore last Friday night for dinner with my colleagues. I love wearing black that's no surprise so I do go balls out with the colour of my accessories I choose!

First up My Makeup: A bold bright lip in pink was my go to choice of colour with a simple nude and black smokey eye, a little bronzer and blush but not too much so the pink lipstick by Limecrime in Pink Velvetine was my choice. I'm so in love with the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation and that's what I'm wearing in this post - can you see that luminous glow?!

My Outfit was a simple black dress and wool dress coat, but if you follow my Instagram you must have seen my feature of my new Christian Louboutin So Kate heels. They are a crazy bright blue and so the pop of colour in my post title! My clutch bag I've had for a couple of years now (I think 2010), it's the Louis Vuitton Sobe clutch in Bleu Nuit - dark navy teal blue with gold hardware.

Unintentionally my nails matched my shoes hahaha I think I was going through a phase since my new shoes came LOL. The colour is by Barry M and is called 'greenberry'. So that was my pop of colour for the week! Happy Monday All!!!

My Hair Care Routine

I have finally got round to sharing a hair care routine with you lovelies! This is a highly requested post! I always always get asked about what I use on my hair to get the shine, thickness and length and how is it so healthy?! I don't think my hair is that long I wish it was longer!! But I do think it maintains shine and thickness and is overall very healthy! 

I'll be very honest with you guys - my hair since I was a child has always been thick, wavy, unruly, hard to manage and 'bush monkey' as my brother describes it! But when I found my way around highlights, blow dryers and hair irons my hair started to change, although it became amazingly manageable and colourful I found that as age went on hair gets less thicker and begins to fall out - not to mention damaged! Horror!

Statement Red Leather Jacket

I have wanted a Red Leather Jacket in like forever and I finally found one in Harrods. It's such a soft buttery leather with a snug fit. It's not too biker chic but enough biker chic to look 'cool'. This was one of my favorite looks this week, made me feel like I could get a million things done in a day! Don't you just love it when an outfit makes you feel that way?

I complimented my outfit with my olive Gucci Handbag, the signature red Gucci stripe matched the red in my overall outfit and I also got these awesome red leather gloves a while back.

Patent Red Peep Toe Heels!

Simple eye makeup, blush and bold red lip I used to finish off my look!
Hope you all had a great week!

Lime Crime Velvetine Liquid to Matte Lip Stain - Review, Photos, Swatches

Lime Crime is a brand which I don't have much experience with, yet the re-occurring posts among bloggers had my one ear on stand by. This is my first ever Lime Crime purchase and it won't definitely be my last! I first came across the Velvetine range from Lime Crime on MakeupbyCherylH's vlog where she was wearing Lime Crime Velvetine in Pink Velvet - omg she looked amazing. I managed to track it down in the UK on eBay, took the plunge and ordered Pink Velvet and Red Velvet.

However while Pink Velvet is ahhhmazingggg it didn't have the wow factor on me as much as Red Velvet did! I have found another perfect matte red! It's just beautiful - a true blue based red that has insane pigmentation.
