Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint in Blackcurrrant

Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint - £3.99

For a while I had fallen out of love with painting my nails. I could never decide on a shade and I didn't have the time or patience to remove and reapply. I also decided to let my nails breathe as months of red varnish had stained them terribly.

Until now I had never dared to go dark with my nails, I always thought it would age the appearance of my hands or look a little too grunge for me. But, I then discovered Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint in Blackcurrant and I was pleasantly surprised. The colour is a very deep purple, almost black, buildable with every coat. It actually compliments my tanned skin really well and I think it suits shorter nails much better. The only disappointment is that it does chip rather easily despite an additional top coat and I have found I need to reapply after two days or so. This colour is really versatile with an edgy chicness to it and I can't get enough of it!

What's on your nails right now?

Scrub Love Mint Temptation

*PR sample

If you've been reading my blog for a while you'll know I'm a huge fan of coffee scrubs. Coffee scrubs work as an amazing skin exfoliant and cellulite buster. Recently I discovered Scrub Love, a UK company that makes organic, fair trade scrubs. Each pouch is packed with natural, ethically sourced ingredients that treat the skin. 

I've been using the 'Mint Temptation' scrub twice a week to buff my body to rid dead skin, I also like to massage the product into areas that I want to tighten and firm. The consistency of this scrub is so much softer than scrubs I currently use, which can be a little harsh on the skin. This particular scrub contains Peppermint oil which gives a refreshing burst and I love how it leaves a cool tingle on my body. Application is a little messy but expected, although I have found this scrub doesn't stain the bath tub which is great! 

Each scrub retails between £11.95-£13.95 and are available in original and coconut. If you haven't converted to coffee scrubs you must try Scrub Love, they don't use parabens or preservatives and are against animal testing :)
