Guess Who's Back!!!

Hey there, my lovely readers!!!

I haven't vanished completely, although it may have looked that way lately! I didn't prepare enough posts before my holidays and so I ran out, thinking I was going to have time to write something while I was away! And boy, was I wrong! I had very little time to check my personal Facebook, and I might have checked my favourite website once or twice or thrice - BH, I am looking at you!!!

Moving on, I had fantastic time overseas, I couldn't have asked for more! I've met some fantastic people, I've gotten to know myself a lot better (believe it or not, I can get ready a lot faster now!), I have eaten lots of delicious stuff, seen amazing places, fell in love with a city or two, bought way too many souvenirs and enjoyed myself more than I could have ever imagined!

Finally, I would like to thank everyone who voted for me in Australian BlogStar Awards 2012, as I have won the Best Women's Lifestyle Blog Post!!!

And that's it from me for now!!! Have a gorgeous day and tell me what have you been up to while I catch up on your blogs and all the TV shows I've missed while I was away! Meanwhile, please please please, tell me what have you been up to!!!

Sally Hansen Gem Crush Nail Polish Collection

So you've seen quite a few NOTDs featuring Sally Hansen's Gem Crush nail polishes and the truth is I've won the entire collection! Yes, all of them!!!

I liked the look of them, but after reading some reviews, it seemed that these polishes chipped a lot, so I decided to not give them a go. Then I entered a competition and won the entire collection, so I've been trying them out.

The truth is, they are pretty amazing and they don't chip at all!!! I've never used them on their own, always with a coat of a different polish underneath, but still, they did not chip - not even a little bit!!!

Like all glitter polishes, these are also a pain to remove, but other than that, I've got nothing negative to say about these polishes - they are fantastic and I really really mean it!

There are eight polishes in this collection:

  1. Showgirl Chic
  2. Cha-Ching!
  3. Big Money
  4. Blingtastic
  5. Be-Jewelled
  6. Razzle Dazzler
  7. Lady Luck
  8. Glitz Gal

All the polishes are incredibly sparkly and two to three coats are enough to get the beautiful coverage. They go on quite smoothly for glitter polishes and the coverage is even, so you won't need to drag and position the glitter yourself, as is the case with some glitter polishes.

Showgirl Chic is a silver micro-glitter polish with some larger blue glitter throughout.
Cha-Ching is a red micro-glitter polish with some larger silver glitter throughout.
Big Money is a gold micro-glitter polish with some larger pink glitter throughout.
Blingtastic is a blue micro-glitter polish with some larger silver glitter throughout.
Be-Jewelled is a light purple micro-glitter polish with some larger light pink glitter throughout.
Razzle Dazzler is a pink micro-glitter polish with some larger silver glitter throughout.
Lady Luck is a magenta micro-glitter polish with some larger holographic glitter throughout.
Glitz Gal is a grey micro-glitter polish with some larger holographic glitter throughout.

All in all, I'm really loving these polishes and can't wait to wear them again when I get back home!!!

Here are some snaps of the colours I've tried so far:

Out of the ones I've tried, my favourite is Lady Luck - it reminds me of raspberries!!! And out of the ones I haven't tried yet, I'm really looking forward to Blingtastic! Which ones do you like the most?

If there is anything else you'd like to know about these polishes that I haven't covered in this review, feel free to ask!!!

Innoxa Tinted Moisturiser SPF15

In the other post, I told you that I've done a trial for Innoxa's Tinted moisturiser, so because I really liked it, I thought I'd do a review on my blog so more people can read about it and try it out if they like the sound of it.

Innoxa Tinted Moisturiser SPF15 comes in a 30mL tube and it costs $19.95, so it does seem a bit pricey for a tinted moisturiser, but I actually liked it a lot better than other tinted moisturisers I've tried. Having said that, I'm yet to try Garnier's BB cream that everyone's been raving about!

This tinted moisturiser felt very soft and smooth on my skin and the texture was so velvety and incredibly easy to apply and very little of this product goes a long way, so the tube will last you a long time.

This baby lasted all day on my face and kept my skin moisturised and fresh-looking and it didn't break me out, so for all these things Innoxa Tinted Moisturiser SPF15 gets extra brownie points from me!!! It also gets brownie points from me for having an SPF15, as it's perfect for using during the day!

Have you tried this tinted moisturiser and what did you think of it?

Here are some of my NOTDs from a little while ago:

This is OPI Fly with Sally Hansen Gem Crush in Showgirl Chic over it.

A gradient spring sort of colours, but I just couldn't get it to photograph well :(

OPI fly with Sally Hansen Crackle over it.

And Sally Hansen again! This time it's Gem Crush in Glitz Gal!

This is Essence Ballerina Backstage in On your gracile tiptoe! Such a cute name and a gorgeous colour!

And in case you started wondering where my Ulta3s are, never fear!!! This is blue marlin - it is so pretty! If I had to make a list of top 10 favourite colours and nail polishes, this would would most certainly be in top three (if not number one)!!!

This is Innoxa's Pomegranate. I did a trial for their tinted moisturiser, and they were so lovely and sent me what they called a small gift! It consisted of a nail polish, a massive bottle of facial cleanser and an eyeshadow quad! I was super impressed to actually receive a gift and this was certainly not a small gift! Thank you, Innoxa!!!

And here's Sally Hansen Gem Crush in Lady Luck over Innoxa's Pomegranate!

Ocean inspired nails done with Ulta3 nail polishes.

Favourites? You pick!! I'm voting for blue marlin :D
