Nail of the Day - Models Own Indian Ocean and Barry M Blueberry

Barry M Blueberry & Models Own Indian Ocean
Blue nails have defiantly become more wearable and with so many different shades and options the possibilities are endless! I've had Models Own Indian Ocean in my collection for a few years now but I haven't used this in ages until I recently re-discovered it. Models Own Indian Ocean is the most stunning duochrome blue polish, shot with light pink. You can wear this colour on it's own but I personally like using this as a top coat over various colours, as it can change up any regular crème shades and transform them into the most beautiful shades.

My favourite combination is complimenting Indian Ocean with Barry M Blueberry underneath, it just looks so pretty, feminine and Summery! Also I recommend teaming is with Essie Mint Candy Apple too.

What's your favourite nail combination? Tweet me a picture or leave a comment down below.

Drugstore Products I'm Loving Right Now

Drugstore Products I'm Loving Right Now
As you know I'm a sucker for an affordable drugstore product that performs well and just recently I have quite a few favourites that rival some of my high end make-up pieces. Here's what I'm loving right now.

What's a drugstore product you swear by and can't live without? Tweet me a picture or leave a comment down below.
Collection Eyes Uncovered Palette
This super affordable palette is an identical dupe for six of the shades from the Urban Decay Naked 1 palette. I just love these shades as they are wearable, buttery smooth and last all day.

NYC Sunny Bronzer
I did a review on this bronzer recently and for only £1.99 you can't go wrong. Not only does it have a mirror it's a lovely universal matte bronzer.

Rimmel Stay Matte
I had heard a lot about this matte powder, so I finally caved and bought this a couple of months ago and oh my I wasn't disappointed! I have been using this powder all day every day, I just love it as it keeps me looking matte all day and gives a beautiful flawless finish that rivals my favourite MAC MSF natural.

Maybelline Gel Liner
I did a comparison on this a while back compared to the Bobbi Brown Long Wear version and there really isn't much difference apart from the price and the slight difference in consistency. I've been really into brown liner at the moment, it just looks more flattering with my green eyes and this Maybelline one does the trick perfectly.

Soap & Glory Archery Brow Pencil
I've been completely obsessed with this pencil lately, the Archery product itself is dual ended with a felt tip pen on one end and a waxy pencil on the other. I have been the using the pencil end everyday to fill in any sparse areas, then going over with a brow powder to finish. I just love the colour of this as it's lovely and natural.

Revlon PhotoReady Foundation
This has been my go to foundation over the past couple of months, I just love the way it looks on my skin. I tend to use a damp Beauty Blender to apply this, which helps it blend seamlessly to create a flawless finish.

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
This is one of my newer products in my make-up collection and something I now can't live without. This concealer is the perfect colour for brightening the eye area, lasts all day and has an eye catching price tag.

Models Own Nail Polish
As you know I love a good nail polish and my two go to colours this Summer have been these stunning colours from the Icing Collection by Models Own. The mint is the perfect neon mint shade and the lilac is unlike any purple I have ever seen before, stunning!
