005Hey lovelies! So third post of the day…It’s mostly because I’m really ill at the moment, so I have loads of time to just…Blog! But…Hmmm, yeah, feeling very ill at the moment actually, so this might just have to be a quickie!

I never really get to paint my nails, because of school and everything, but whenever I get the chance, I really like to go for it! (Of course, I can obviously paint my tootsies, but because it’s now getting into a/w…I doubt I’ll really have a chance to show them off, eh?!)

I like to take extra care of my nails (I sort of neglect my feet a bit though, which is kinda, erm, grim), but I obviously like to keep them clean and cut into little ovals and filed! (I cut my toenails into squares though) But no one likes chips and chaps, so making sure any polish that is chipped is removed is key, and then I can get going on my next polish! I like to also buff my nails, and moisturise my hands in the mean time. I also like any type of top/base coat applied over the top of any polish I choose, as this gives it a nice, smooth sheen.

So…Some pretty autumnal nail polishes that I’ve been going for recently, and shall be going for next (maybe a nice red for halloween?!) are as follows:

1. Rimmel London 60 Seconds Black Out: Who doesn’t love a black polish…Especially as we’re getting into the colder months!

2. Rimmel London 60 Seconds Central Love Heart: As I said, this could definitely be the perfect red for halloween! (And of course, the perfect red for any occasion obviously;))

3. Seventeen Off The Wall Graffiti Nail Effects Monochrome: Perfect for any night out, or just to jazz up any outfit to add interest! Subtle, but fun!

941611_391800077595226_1995701383_nHey lovelies! So today is sort of a catch-up post, as I just wanted to talk about stuff really, and up above is a little taster of my last Instaweek (when I got my new playsuit in the mail), so go check it out at: @simplytallulah, for the rest of the photos!

So anyway, tomorrow is back to school for me, so I’m sort of dreading that, as I swear I have a Science test coming up…Ugh. And that also means that I have to take this lovely Barry M Gelly nail polish in Blackberry off my nails, which is so annoying! Anyway, instead of dragging on and moaning about stuff, I just wanted to bring up the fact that the new Star Trek film is just amazing! I went and saw it with my best mate, and it brought us both to tears! It was so amazing, and Simon Pegg and Benedict Cumberbatch were so good in it, as well as the rest of the main cast! Ohohoh! And I also recently saw the new film Epic on Friday, and it was so cute! The little cartoon reminded me a bit of The Borrowers, and it was just such a cute little film, so go watch it if you want a little family trip to the cinema! It was good in 3D too!

I also recently went up to London with Megan from mynamesmegan.blogspot.co.uk, and we went up to Carnaby Street to meet Tanya Burr…Long story cut short, it was mayhem. Just google it or something, or go on Twitter, and you’ll get what I mean…I also spotted Sophie from sophieetc.com and Ellie from elliesfavouritethings.com there, but didn’t say hello because I’m a big ninny, who didn’t want to freak them out by going all weird and fangirly over them, haha;)

Anyway, a few chilled songs for you to check out, which I have just been loving recently:

Calvin Harris feat. Ellie Goulding – I need your love

Robyn – Call your girlfriend

Chloe Howl – Rumour

Tom Odell – Another Love

Tich – Dumb

Lucy Spraggan – Lighthouse

1 2Top Picture – MUA Pistachio Ice Cream Nail Varnish // Bottom Picture – Cute or What? Nail Varnish

Hey lovelies! One of today’s posts is going to be about my nails! As you can see, the first pictures shows a beautiful minty colour on my fingers, and the second pictures shows one of my toes (I didn’t think you’d want to see my whole manky foot;) Haha.) With a gorgeous coat of sparkly purple covering the nails!

MUA have really upped their game recently, and have brought out so many great items, and dupes for other products! I think that this nail paint (top picture) is so pretty, and the packaging really reminds me of the Essie packaging! The colour is also very much like the Essie Mint Candy Apple, and so is such a great dupe, and only £1! Bargain!

The second picture shows me flaunting off the Cute or What? Nail varnish on my toes, which is just a pretty sparkly purple colour, and is actually probably one of my favourite nail colours at the moment, and is, in my opinion, the best nail varnish they’ve done!

Have you tried these out? What are your thoughts? I’d love to know!

Tallulah xoxo

 

919644_374469845994916_1038139387_oHello! So, it’s been a while, hasn’t it…So I thought I’d slowly emerge with a nice nail post! This colour is just gorgeous. Well, I think so anyway, and it’s just a slightly darker baby pink, which gives a vibrant pop to your nails and outfit! Perfect for Spring, and also…It’s pink! I love pink nails, and I’ve actually just realised how about half of my nail varnish collection is made up of different kinds of pinks…Obsessed. If you were wondering, this is from Claire’s, and I really recommend it, as I got this beautiful colour from just one coat! Bye for now.

So, last week, or some time…I was supposed to post my nail inspiration, as I told you that I was going to be wearing pearly pink nails for Easter…But ya know. Stuff like chocolate got in the way, and then I felt sick FROM the chocolate, and then I saw friends and stayed up watching scary films and romances, but here I am with this well needed post! So voila! Down below are my Easter nails…(Not very inspiring or Easter-y, but I like the colour.)

521765_368699186571982_299345328_nThis nail varnish is from the Natural Collection range (As you can tell) And not actually named or numbered, but it’s just a very shimmery pearly pink, with sparkles dotted in the paint, and it makes them glitter, and just look very cute, and perfect for Easter! I have actually changed my nails, so I shall do another post on that on the weekend or something.

 

 

006I’m here for another tag! I found this on Ingrid (missglamorazzi’s) channel, and I’ve seen it everywhere, so I thought I might join in, as it looks like a lot of fun!

1. Favourite spring nail polish?

I’ve actually just mentioned this in my last post, and it’s the Love & Beauty Forever 21 bubblegum pink coloured polish!

2. What is your must-have lip color this spring?

I like nudes, but I might go for a coral, or light red or pink, but at the moment I’ve been using the Natural Collection lip stick in the colour Rose Bud…Look out for a review soon!

3. Show us your favorite spring dress!

I don’t really wear dresses that much to be honest, and only really ever wear them to special occasions, but I always bring this long floaty dress/top to the beach to put over my bikini, if this counts? (Picture at the top)

4. What’s your favorite flower?

Roses! What a cliché, but roses have always been my favourite spring/summer flowers!

5. Favorite spring scarf/accessory?

Sunnies are a must, and I also have a cute pink bird scarf which is perfect for spring! Bows are so cute too!

6. What spring trend(s) are you most excited about this year? (Makeup, fashion or both!)

Brights and neons (lip colours, nail polishes and fashion) and also big, bold prints and florals!

7. Favourite spring candle?

I actually need to stock up on candles to decorate my room with, as I only have one at the moment, and it doesn’t really smell of anything! But my mum always seems to be burning nice scents, like florals or vanilla, so maybe something like that!

8. Favourite body spray/perfume for spring?

I actually just talked about this in my last post too! I like all of Natural Collection and So…?’s body sprays as they’re so uplifting and light!

9. What is spring like where you live?

At the moment it feels like Winter, with the occasional flicker of sunlight, but last year it was so hot and beautiful, with flowers, bees and the gorgeous sun and sky!

10. What’s your favourite thing about spring?

Looking forward to days at the beach, long strolls in the park, picnics in the garden, and changing your wardrobe!

11. Are you a spring cleaner?

Well, I’m re-organising my room and wardrobe at the moment, and I’ll be stocking up on new spring fashion finds, and make-up, so I suppose in a way?!

12. Any plans for spring break or an upcoming vacation?

No, not really, but I want to have a few beach days, trips to London and shopping with friends, but I think in the Summer break we might go camping or to France!

I hope you enjoyed this and also try this out! I would tag Megan from mynamesmegan, but she’s already done this, so I’ll just tag Shona from freshbeautyxox!

PicMonkey CollageIt’s time to sort out your make-up, and swap your Winter goodies for Spring!

1. Change your scent.

Changing your scent from deep and musky Winter scents, to a floral, light and fun scent for Spring is easy! For Winter, my signature scent was Karl Lagerfeld’s Sun, Moon and Stars, and this is nice, as it smells musky and  is strong and lingering, but for Spring, I think I will go with a number of fresh body sprays from the Natural Collection and So…? range, as these really do the trick to be a bit more uplifted, and they can easily fit in your bag when you’re on the go!

2. Change your nail colours.

Pastels are huge right now, and will change up your wardrobe and look, by making you feel very summery and cute! Tuck the deep and dark colours away, like dark reds and blacks, and go for baby blues, and bubblegum pinks! I’ll be swapping my favourite Winter polish (Natural Collection’s Cosmic Crush), for my Love & Beauty Forever 21 bubblegum pink coloured polish! (I showed you this in a past post!)

3. Get out the tan.

Get out the tan! (If you want, and need it) And if you just feel like getting more of a glow for your pins! I personally love the St. Tropez tans, and feel they give a nice finish!

I hope you enjoyed this post, and got a few ideas on how to change up your look this Spring!
