Lazy Sundays

Hello :]

Before I make a start on our roast dinner, I thought i'd nip on here and write about a couple of products that I really like at the moment so would recommend you trying if/when you can!

As some of you may have read, I bought a few bits and pieces from e.l.f this week including a couple of nail polishes, so yesterday I thought I'd try them out. I was really disappointed with the 'Metal Madness' polish, it was really thick, gloopy and didn't apply well at all. I'm not sure whether this was just my pot or whether you're not supposed to apply more than one coat...i'm really not sure, so any advice would be appreciated!! Instead, I decided to try out the e.l.f 'Gum Pink' with the 'Matte Finisher' and the results really did impress.

e.l.f Gum Pink nail polish - £1.50

e.l.f Matte Finisher nail polish - £1.50

My nails/hands are in really bad condition at the moment but you get the idea with the finish. It's so different from the usual Barry M Crystal Clear top coat I use and I really can't wait to try it with my Ciaté colours.

Speaking of Barry M, I recently watched a haul by Foundonfilm where she mentioned the new shade of lipstick, Pale Nude. I don't wear lipstick or lipgloss as I never seem to find any colours I like but I instantly loved this one. Since then, i've been going to boots everyday to see whether they have it in stock and finally on Friday they did :] yay! I haven't worn it to work yet but if i'm brave enough, then I think I will tomorrow. My lips seem to be really dry at the moment, so i've popped some lipgloss over the top. What do you think? Does it suit me?

Sorry, my lips aren't very nice at the moment :[
What do you think? :]
It's Sunday, so i'm not going to put loads of slap on just to take a picture but if you could let me know what you think of the colour?

Hope you're all having lazy Sundays and starting to enjoy autumn?
