Clippy London - Magazine Insert Make-up Bags!

 I love the concept of these bags!
" Just tear off your favourite magazine cover and slide it into the specially designed COVER GIRL pocket. Elle–up and Vogue-out " 

 Of course i put Gaga in my bag! It looks fab on my bathroom shelf as it just looks like a magazine, so genius! I loved this magazine cover so I'm glad i can recycle it. 
 The magazine is secured into place with a plastic sheet that lies over the top - this also protects it and is easy to wipe clean. The case closes with two magnets and an inside zip.
This is such a creative and unique idea - Clippy Kit offer lots of other items that you can customize, like totes, clutches, pencil cases etc! 

Buy from: Clippy London 
Make-up clutch RRP: £10

NOTD: Perfectly Peach Nails - Urban Outfitters Nail Polish

 Ok so it's actually called Tangerine but to me it's the perfect peach colour! They should definitely re-name it! Strangely enough it is advertised as Tangerine but states Matte Orange on the bottle - confusing! But none-the-less it's a beautiful shade. 
It is from Urban Outfitters nail polish range. I had no idea they did nail polish until i was browsing the site the other day.
 The colour is amazing - i cannot stop looking at my nails. So pretty and girly.
The application was sheer but built up with 2 coats - 3 coats would have made for a perfect finish. 
I love that it dries matte also!
I picked up 3 colours - Matte Orange 4 (Tangerine), Lilac 1 (Mauve) and Mint 1. All are extremely gorgeous pastels.

I am extremely happy with the polishes and the packaging is fabulous, i love the line effects and the rubber top.

I will blog post the rest soon!

Is it just me or is this more of a peach colour?

Nubar 2010 Top Coat Swatches + Review

 This top coat is absolutely beautiful - i have so many nail polishes but i have never seen anything like this. I have glittery nail polishes, but this is something different - it has flecks of pearlescent flakes mixed in it. It reminds of that Goldslick vodka with the gold particles. So pretty!
I applied two coats over a french manicure for a stunning but subtle effect. It reflects the light creating a multitude of beautiful colours including pink, green, gold, orange, blue and many more. Almost like the colour of petrol.

All these photos are taken in natural lighting with no flash to get the true colours.

Below i added 4 coats of 2010 over Nubars Peacock Feathers, using a dark colour really sets off the topcoat making it even more amazing in my opinion! Even after applying 4 coats it dried quickly and built up nicely.

Depending on the angle and lighting the topcoat changes colour.

Below i applied two coats over Chanel 527 - i really loved the effect it created.

This topcoat is a must have! I know it has already sold out on the website but has just been re-stocked, so i would highly recommend getting your 'claws' on it now :)
