Hard As Nails – Red Excess

This nail lacquer product by Maybelline and it’s ‘Color Show’ range in Crystallize is really hard wearing and perfect for London girls.

I found that it is so hard wearing, it could take all of the bumps, scratches and scrapes that most other nail polishes are ruined by. The surface and finish of this polish resists scratches and chips really well, although it does need a few coats of top coat to get a nice shine on it, unless you want the more matt crystallized effect that is characteristic of the polish.

I recommend that you prepare the nails well with a good manicure, removing any grease on the nails before applying a base coat, to act as a glue for the polish and prevent staining. Then apply two coats of polish, which also dries quite quickly (good for those fast paced girls in a hurry) and then finish with two coats of a good top coat for added shine.

For best result, see a beauty therapist and avoid manicures more than once per week.

My first blog post

Welcome to the very start of my blog, with my very first post with a little light show to get you relaxed and in the mood for future posts and a beautiful panorama of the Blue Lagoon in Iceland.

This is the space that I will use to write blogs for you that will be rolling to express ideas, looks, beauty treatments and products, as well as art and design, that will hopefully inspire you and uplift you.

I hope that you enjoy my blogs, as much as I do writing them and creating images for them.

The following look was something that I played with and created today, involving a lovely Pink ikat printed summer dress from Asda, French Connection sandals in Dusky Pink, some hair chalk and minimal makeup over self tan with bronzing pearls and Maybelline lipstick and nails (see Hard as Nails Blog).

Here, within this blog space, I will test drive products and go into much more detail in future with the beauty products involved and and inspiration with completed looks.
