I was first introduced to this product by a friend, eventually! I had noticed her nails looked very professional, they were leopard print. When I asked her where she had got them done she insisted she had done them her self by "dabbing" black nail varnish on her nails. Several weeks later she revealed her secret, the Barry M Instant Nail Effect. So, of course I had to go and buy a pot for myself!
The product comes with a handy leaflet attached to it that explains clearly how to use the product, this proved most useful as I had never experienced anything like it before. This product needs to be used in combination with another ordinary nail varnish of your choice. You apply your nail varnish just as you normally do. Once this has dried you can then apply the Barry M Instant Nail Effect. The bottle says to apply only a small amount and to avoid going over brush strokes, this is a MUST! If you apply the varnish too thickly or apply it with too many brush strokes it will not work. If applied correctly, using the easy to follow instruction booklet, it will cover your previous colour in a black top coat. After a few seconds you can literally watch as the black top coat cracks to form a the random nail effect seen on the lid of the bottle. Your nails will look like you have been to the salon when in reality you have achieved the look for half the price.
This black colour works best on lighter colours such as pinks, light blues, yellows, oranges ect. If it is used with the darker colours it will not show up as effectively. This product also comes in other colours which work more effectively on the darker base coats.
It will take a couple of attempts to master how to apply the nail varnish to get the best results, but once you have learnt the skill you will have the salon inspired look at home for less.
Unlike many other television series that create a film, The Inbetweeners Movie actual does justice to the original show. The movie has been written and directed just as the original t.v series. Being a huge fan of the Inbetweeners from day 1, even before it became famous, I can say I was so pleased with the result of the film. I can honestly say it is just like one long extended episode. The same witty and slightly crude humor is captured throughout the entirety of the film. The boys maintain their slightly "geeky" nature and all of their original characterizations are maintained. It is an absolute that this film will have you laughing out loud from the first scene to the last. Regardless of weather or not you have watched the t.v series you will be able to follow the the film, however, watching the original series makes some jokes and remarks more understandable but all in all it is not essential to watch the show before seeing the movie. I would issue a warning that this is perhaps a film to watch with your friends, rather than your family as some scenes can become a bit awkward with your parents sitting beside you!But overall this movie is very original, it is pure comedy whilst managing to squeeze in some hopeless romance for the boys! It is a must see.
After breaking my camera I was looking for an affordable replacement. I am not an expert in this field so I can provide a review from an amateur in photographer for those of you who aren't looking for a camera to capture images of your friends, family and the odd view. Firstly, I felt this camera was a bargain! I bought it in Tesco for around forty-five pounds. It was 16 megapixels, even I know that for 45 pounds this is incredible! It is light in weight which makes it perfect for carrying with you everywhere you go so you never miss a photo opportunity! It's small size and light weight means it is now a permanent object I carry in my handbag. It is incredible easy to use with a specific button to access the photo gallery. It has many options to ensure you get the clearest picture for the exact situation. For those of you who, like me, are not incredibly knowledgeably on how to take the "perfect photo" there is an auto setting. This setting means the camera will adjust itself to fit best to the situation. I rarely take the camera off this setting as it provides clear pictures almost every time.
I bought this product as I was sick and tired of that horrible "white mark" powder like effect that seemed to be a given with every spray deodorant on the market. This genius product for Sure has made the white marks I so much dreaded extinct! The bottle is easy to hold, especially their newly developed design. The button is easily pressed and controlled and I have not had an issues with the nib breaking yet which is a unbelievable! Unlike other deodorants, I can spray the deodorant in the comfort of my bedroom for a good 5 seconds on each underarm without having to suffer from chocking from the dry fumes. The deodorant can be sprayed in a room full of people without someone coughing or complaining. Furthermore, the product does offer whit mark protection! I could change my top ten times within 5 minutes of putting the deodorant on and not have white marks appear on any item! In addition to all of this, the deodorant seems to last all day! I am a student and I can put the product on in the morning and still know I am protective at the end of a very busy day. The only disadvantage to this product is it does not protect against embarrassing sweat marks!
A few years ago when my fake tan addiction began I tried many products at a range of prices. It was a friend of mine who introduced and converted me to the fabulous "ST. MORIZ". I have tried this product in both the spray and mousse form and I can reveal that the mousse form featured here is by far the best version of the product.
The product suggests that you exfoliate the skin, moisture dry areas before applying the mousse. For the first while I followed these instructions quickly, but as my life has become more busy and then time I have to get ready has decreased I soon started applying the product without doing this. I can confirm that there is no obvious difference between exfoliating and moisturizing before hand and not. By exfoliating and moisturizing it will make skin more irresistible to the touch but does not alter the products effectiveness.
The product is super easy to apply. It is very important that a tanning mitt or gloves are used for applying the product, If you apply the product with your hand you will regret it! It results it a hideous bright orange stain to the palms that will take days to scrub of fully. The product is quick and simply to apply. The colour is instant which makes it very easy to ensure it is applied evenly as missed spots are obvious and can be soon blended. When applying it is important not to scrub or forcibly apply it as this will result in streaks.
The bottle advises leaving 4 to 6 hours for the tan to dry and then you should shower. Showering before going out is a MUST! This is for two very good reasons. Firstly, showering rinses off the top coat of the tan to leave a bronzed colour. If you do not rinse of this top coat and you spill anything on your skin or it rains the product will run and leave streaks! It may even run onto clothes, (however the product washes from everything in the wash). Secondly, the product is sightly pungent when first applied, but showering removes this smell.
If you follow these guidelines ST.MORIZ is an affordable way to achieve a salon tan at home! I swear by this product and have not looked back. It is just as effective as "ST.TROPEZ" instant tan, the only difference is the price!
I am a mascara addict! My makeup bag is filled with mascaras from many different makeup brands. No7 wouldn't normally be my first choice when purchasing new makeup but a voucher I had brought me to their counter. I was pleasantly surprised by the results of this product. When doing mascara I would always apply more than one type, e.g. I would use a lengthening one, a thickening one, a volumising one etc. to get the best effect. This product was a welcomed added effect to this collection. It is effective in added volume to lashes, without clumping eyelashes. This product has allowed me to wear only this mascara without the aid of any other, however, this was only for going to the local shops, (not for a night on the town). One its own it helps to define eyes in an effective yet subtle way. For this reason, I would recommend this product to those who usually aim for a more "natural" look and want to beautify their looks in an non-obvious way.
I was sick of my mother constantly stealing my hairdryer, so, for Christmas this year I thought it a good idea to buy her one of her own. The Nicky Clarke hairdryer had been described as a more affordable alternative to a GHD one, so I thought I would take the risk. My mother was delighted, but now it seems we are back to sharing a hairdryer again, my old one is incomparable! This product that is sleek in design, is light in weight and fits its purpose perfectly. The buttons are positioned so that you cannot change the speed or temperature by accident when using it. It has three choices of both speed and heat and the "turbo" button will dry the thickest of hair in minutes. It achieves its main purpose of frizz control perfectly. Even when blast drying my hair the "frizz" is kept under control and to an absolute minimum. I could not be more pleased with this product, I recommend it to everyone!
