Summer Nails

My Go-to summer nail polishes!

Rimmel London 60 Seconds - 415 Instyle Coral
This is a beautoful Coral which goes with anything and has great staying power.

Barry M Gelly - Prickly Pear
I love the Gelly Nail collection from Barry M, they are super glossy on the nails and again stay on for a good amount of time!

Barry M Gelly - Lychee
Perfect Nude when you find you can't wear a bright colour on the nails.

Miss Sporty - 17
I love Miss Sporty - super cheap and a great colour range.

Maybelline Super Stay - Mint for Life
The perfect pastel mint for summer and it stays on for a good amount of time (maybe not exactly 7 days like it says on the packaging though).

What are your summer nail polish favorites?

I thought I would do an updated every-day make up post today as my last one was agess ago. Just thought i'd show you the products I reach for every day and do some mini-reviews of them!

I realise these photos are quite washed out because of the lighting but you get the general idea.

Rimmel 'Wake Me Up' Foundation - 100 Ivory
This is probably my fourth bottle of this stuff as I really enjoy it. I'd say it gives a medium but build-able coverage and does what it says on the bottle and 'wakes me up'. I am one of those people with a very fair complexion and this is the lightest shade they do and it blends perfectly into my skin.

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer - 1 Fair
This is my holy grail product which I cannot live without. It is perfect for under the eyes and covering up any pesky break-outs! And it is reasonably affordable too. I usually have one of these in my bag so i'm prepared for anything haha.

MAC Pro Longwear Eyeshadow - Sweet Satisfaction
This is my first ever MAC product and was a gift from my friend. I really like the colour as it is a perfect every-day shade to wack on the eyelids and not worry about having to blend it etc. I do really like it and it has great staying power and its lasted since I got it in September so I would probably repurchase as it's worth the money!

Collection Fast Stroke Eyeliner - Black
This again is a repurchased item - it stays on all day, is cheap and is easy to use so what more do you need. I always wear my eyeliner with a slight wing to it - it feels weird if I don't do it now.

Maybelline The Falsies Mascara - Black Drama
This mascara is amazing and im sadly running low so gonna have to fork out £7 for a new one :( It is great at giving length and volume though! My only complaint is I cant use it on my bottom lashes as it can run.

Rimmel Soft Khol - 061 Jet Black
This is a nice soft liner for my water line. I don't take this all the way along my bottom water line just half way in.

MUA pressed powder - Shade 1
I have nothing much to say about this product it was just what I had at the time and it was cheap - won't necessarily repurchase but its not horrible.

Natural Collection Bronzing Powder - Golden Glow
I have used this for almost years now but not because I have repurchased it but because I have never finished it! I don't love it though so can anyone recommend a good drugstore bronzer please?

Benefit Blush - Bella Bamba
This is just a sample product but I really like it and it is actually lasting me a very long time! I could never bring myself to actually buy it though as benefit prices are just too much for me - not worth it in my opinion!

Natural Collection Eyeshadow - Crushed Walnut
I actually use this eyeshadow for my eyebrows! It works perfectly to fill in any little gaps and shape them a little and as long as I brush through them after applying it it stays put all day. And its an absolute steal at £1.99.

What would you say are your go-to make up products? Also leave me suggestions for a good drugstore bronzing powder please!
