St Patrick's Day Mani using Clover Water Decals from Nail Art UK

PRESS SAMPLE
There are 25 lucky Clover Water Decals in the pack from Nail Art UK all the same design in different sizes.  A four leaf clover is thought to bring good luck and chances of finding one is 1 in 10,000 so if you do find one you are very lucky!   And although a 4 leaf clover isn't a shamrock I'm dedicating my mani to St Patrick's Day, the patron saint of Ireland.
If you've not tried water decals before, give them a go, simply soak in a little water, remove from the backing paper, apply to your painted nails and seal with top coat - done!  Check out my video demonstration below.

Avon Mark Gel Shine Nail Enamels - I Pink I Can & Surebet

I feel Spring is in the air with the days getting longer, daffodils blooming with a nod to the new season, and when the sun shines bright like today it makes me want to wear pastels on my nails. 

So, without further ado, let me share my swatches for Avon Mark Gel Shine nail enamels named ‘I Pink I Can’ and ‘Surebet’.
I Pink I Can is a baby pink, bright yet soft and pretty. The shade reminds me of sugared mice and candy floss. I applied 3 coats for full even coverage.
Surebet is a soft dreamy peach, warmer in tone compared to the cool I Pink I Can, deliciously sweet like peach melba! I applied 2 coats.
What are you wearing on your nails this weekend, something soft and pastel, bright and bold, or sparkly glitter?

I’ve been informed by Avon that all their nail enamels are 5-Free (free of Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, and camphor). 10ml bottle.

Review of Avon's Coveted Top


I’m so pleased I bought the Coveted Top. Why? Lots of reasons!
DSC08002 (872x1280).jpg
I love the cut out (laddered) detail around the neck, shoulders, peephole and cuffs, the soft grey shade is perfect for all seasons, it’s true to size and the sleeves are long enough for my orangutan length arms! And it looks just like it does in the promo photos. A super stylish blouse, great for going out, smart for work wear and easy for casual wear.
With covered buttons and elasticated hoops on the cuffs and the back, it’s easy to do up, even on your own.
DSC08001 (1280x960).jpg
I’ve got long arms and a long body, I struggle to find tops that fit my length without becoming too wide. I’m wearing UK size 14/16 and in my opinion is true to size.
The Coveted top is slightly longer at the back than the front and can be worn tucked in or out. A nice touch is the pintucked shoulders at the top of the sleeve.
I really love this blouse, I hope they make more in different colours, black would be great for winter!

100% polyester.

Avon Mark *Epic* Lipsticks - Street Style, Rosy Outlook, Blushing Beauty & Extreme Mauve

New month = new lippies – yay!
I’ve got 4 of the new Avon Mark *Epic* Lipsticks with built-in primer to show you.
via GIPHY
So here I am wearing Street Style, Rosy Outlook, Blushing Beauty & Extreme Mauve.

I took a chance with Street Style, I wanted to try something different and I’m so glad I did. It has a slightly grilac (grey/lilac) hue, a little edgy, but I love it.
 Next Rosy Outlook, a lovely trendy neutral shade.
 Blushing Beauty, is possibly my fave, maybe it’s because it’s the shade I tend to go for.
 And finally, Extreme Mauve, the bright and boldest of the four. A great going out shade.  I wore Extreme Mauve on my Avon rounds and it lasted ALL evening! Woohoo!
A nice touch is the Mark logo embossed on the lipstick.
There are 22 new shades, 3.6g.

Avon Apple Storage Pot

I keep my key pieces of jewellery in a shabby black heart-shaped velveteen box hidden in a drawer. When I saw the Avon Apple Store pot it jumped out at me and before I knew it, it was in my basket!  It can be used to store a multitude of things, cosmetics, crafty bits, cotton wool, sewing bits and I have used it as a jewellery box.
The Apple Storage pot is boxed and is in 3 parts; a lid with a gold-tone leaf and stalk, a shelf divided into quarters, and a bowl base. The pot is clear making it easy to find what you want from inside.
It’s so pretty it now takes pride of place in my boudoir, I’m no longer hiding my pretties in a drawer, my jewels are not expensive so don’t need to be kept in a safe place.
The Apple Storage pot is bigger than I was expecting, which is great, more things to keep together, so here’s a photo of me holding the post so you get an idea of sizing.
A lovely gift for yourself, a friend, Mother’s Day or Easter if you’re avoiding choccies. What would you store in the Avon Apple Storage pot?

 Made from PS (Polystyrene Plastic), size 13cm x 13cm x 13cm

The photo below is without camera flash under artificial lighting, gorgeous, gorgeous, GORGEOUS!
