Essie - Mint Candy Apple





This polish is and has been spoken about a lot by other bloggers and You tubers and i admit i am a bit late jumping on the band wagon and have only just purchased it. Mint is my favorite colour for a nail polish, i have quite a large collection of them in slightly different shades. However when i saw the new Essie counter up at my local Boots (Drugstore) I had to grab a new mint coloured polish, and i am so happy i did. 

I have a few polishes by Essie but from a while ago and the brush is really thin on them and i often was prone to streaks. The new brush is lovely, nice and thick and makes applying nail varnish so easy and streak free. I know packaging shouldn't really matter but i have always thought that Essie's bottles are really cute and nice enough to look at that you could put them on display in your room. I applied this polish on Saturday and took these pictures last night (Wednesday). The staying power is incredible on this polish and could have gone longer i think. It had started to slightly chip but the smallest amount that it can go unseen. I use the caviar top coat by Nails inc which i use every time i paint my nails. For some reason this Essie polish loved my top coat and stayed looking cute and had that just polished look. I can honestly say that 'Mint Candy Apple' has lasted the longest on my nails out of all the Essie polishes that i have tried! I had to write and speak to you guys about this as it really has amazed me, and i am going to be purchasing a few more Essie polishes if they will all have the same staying power as i am hoping its something to do with the new formulation that they have brought out along with the new brush! 

Have you tried Essie 'Mint Candy Apple'? What do you think? Did it last this well on you? Did it last for longer than me? Could you recommend any other Essie colours to me that are your favorites?

Thanks for reading guys! Always means a lot :)

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day! I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine. Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down. What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the  Yes To Cucumber  range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try!  It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
