Anyone who knows me will know that I get the most pleasure out of the simple things in life - a cup of tea, a good book, and five minutes to myself to paint my nails. By the way, the used book addiction has got seriously out of hand...I promised myself I wouldn't buy any more, and then I bought nine's a good job I don't have much of a life and therrefore have plenty of time to read them. I have already started 'The Farm' by Tom Rob Smith, and it is quite the page turner. I almost sacraficed my Sunday nap for it...I didn't obviously.

So, when it comes to painting my nails, I have been favoring metallic shades recently and Poundland, have a surprisingly large collection of nail varnishes, and some gorgeous colours. This rose gold shade caught my eye and it is a great little polish for the price. Two coats is all that is needed, and it dries super quick, as well as being pretty resisstant to chipping, which is useful for a clutz like me.

Another line of nail polishes I have been impressed with, is from Kiki Cosmetics,They have a great range for just £2.50, including this delightful mermaid shade, that survived an afternoon of decorating. I will definitely be adding more to my collection, or recieving them gratefully as Christmas gifts...hint, hint!

What budget beauty buys would you reccommend? Gems x


  1. Mermaid nails!? Cuuuuute!! :) I use gel nail polish, used to use expensive brands but now I use cheapo 'BlueSky' polish from eBay. It's awesome!

  3. Great nail varnish from Poundland. You can get some bargains there. I like MUA makeup from Superdrug - brilliant price too.

  4. Love the rustic nail polish. From Poundland - well I never! I'm also a clutz when it comes to keeping my nail colour intact. I don't think I've ever managed to get through a whole day without at least half a dozen chips! Tx

  5. Budget beauty is my thing, budget everything is my thing :D Currently loving stuff from Himalaya, gonna do a review about them soon.
    Oh dude, second hand books are the best, I know your pain and addiction and I can't help you cause I'm the same :D
    The rusty colored polish is quite fancy!
