Ok, the above is quite a claim to make, you may be thinking. BUT I have been plagued with the dreaded chipping of nail polish all my life, I don’t know if it’s me, my nails, the polishes, or just that I am generally a bit clumsy.

This Dior Venis polish in ‘Rose Flamboyant’ or ‘Blazing Pink’ is somewhere neatly between a red and pink, and it is pretty ‘flamboyant’. I’m a sucker for red nails, I always return to a bright red as I feel like it goes with all seasons and is fun but also classy.


Shiny red nails!

This photo is after 4 days of wearing this colour, and I usually do not make it past 2 without that flaking, peeling mess happening. I am so impressed with Dior, and whilst I know this isn’t cheap, I would happily buy just a few expensive shades if they work as well as this one.

I used the OPI topcoat over the Dior and whilst this is a good topcoat, it hasn’t worked wonders for any of my drugstore nail polishes. My mum has also been wearing the Dior without a topcoat on her toenails and it has also been pretty resilient there.

Overall, a total LOVE product, the colour, finish, durability.

J’Adore Dior!


I’ve been a Liz Earle convert for almost a year now, I’d read loads of reviews and seen it featured in lots of beauty magazines and blogs and decided to give it a go. I have normal-oily skin that’s prone to breakouts. I used to have really bad acne from age 12-16 so I have a few acne scars and still get the occasional large spot. Before Liz Earle cleanse and polish I didn’t have a set routine in regards to skincare, I either used face wipes or St. Ives products or Simple cleansers, my skin was more prone to breakouts and was rough and oily within an hour of washing my face. I also tried the Clinique skincare trio which made my skin dry, flaky and irritated, not good! Liz Earle cleanse and polish is my SAVIOUR. It removes all traces of makeup, leaves skin feeling clean (without being tight or dry and is for day and night. You use a pump of the product and using the tips of your fingertips rub the product into your skin and eyes (it doesn’t burn or hurt at all!) to remove makeup, you then get your muslin cloth wet with hot water and remove the product (and makeup) from your face. When all of it is removed, you splash your face with cold water to close up pores. If I’m wearing a lot of makeup I may repeat this to make sure all the makeup is gone from my skin before I go to bed. Then pat your face dry and it should be soft, clean and feel amazing!
