I just discovered a new little nail trick that I have got myself all excited about and had to share. As usual I am guessing this is a trend I'm probably the last person to find out about (so god knows how many years they've actually been around) but the other day I noticed my work colleague Emilia had some really pretty designs on her nails that looked like they'd been done in a professional salon.

She brightened up my day on Monday when she said she'd been to Brighton and while she was out had picked me up a pack of the form of Revlon Nail Lace Stickers.

The simple technique is simply to peel one of the stickers off the plastic sheet, apply it to your nail, then overlay it with a coat of clear nail varnish. I couldn't believe how easy it was to achieve such a pretty and professional result:

There are two different colours and four different designs, and I like that you can mix the colours up, or as I have done here, only apply one or two to each hand-whatever you do it looks great.

I was only trying them out today, but I can't wait for a special occasion where I can showcase these bad boys!

I am a bit of a self confessed beauty junkie. I ran out of primer the other day and decided it was time to try something new. Sometimes I question why I ever started using primer in the first place (does it really do anything...?!) but sadly I am now addicted and even more so now that I've bought this one by Mac:

It is a clear serum that smooths, firms and rejuvenates the skin before you apply make up and it really does feel wonderful.

You may also remember that I bought a new nail colour a while back, and since I was loving it so much, I decided at the same time as buying the primer to invest in a little stick of colour match to go with it:

The colour is Up The Amp and it is part of Mac's amplified range of lipsticks. I have had one before (St Germain) and I love how stand out and durable they are. I've already received plenty of compliments on the new colour. Good choices!

So here we are at the weekend again, enjoy it everyone! I'm gonna have a chilled one after last weekend, so plenty of film watching and wine sipping. Happy days.
