Manicure Monday: Nails Inc Kensington High Street



So today I have a Nails Inc polish to show you. It's a bottle I picked up at TK Maxx last summer and I think the colour, in its original formula doesn't exist anymore.

They now have it in a Gel Effect version though. From what I can see online (as I haven't seen the gel one in the flesh) it is different.

Mine is a true dark red, wether the gel on looks plummier. Anyhoo, I like it, a classic choice for a date ;) This is this morning, third day of wear. I have a few dents, but nothing major that Nails Inc tend to usually do.

Nails Inc polishes start at £11. Have you got yourself a favourite?

Saturday's Stuff I Like


How are you lovelies?

Granted I'm hitting published on Sunday, as I was waiting for the end of the afternoon to add things...

So this week has been all about perfumes. I went shopping with my new friend and colleague Aurore a few times this week, and the perfume I got my sight on is La Petite Robe Noire Couture from Guerlain. I almost got it on Thursday, as Marionnaud was having a promo of 25% on everything in store, and since I was out of town for a work event and couldn't go to any of their stores, my flatmate Laura offered me to go get it. Unfortunately, the limited editon bottle I told her I wanted didn't come in the  Couture version, so in the end I didn't get it. But I'm glad I can count on somone like that :)

Another friend (who shall remain anonymous) gave me a bottle of Ricci Ricci from Nina Ricci this week. It has a similar scent to the Guerlain one I think. I used to have, I got a few samples of it a few years ago when it launched, but I like it even better now. I think I'm growing up a little bit scent wise.

I got my girly mojo back. So this week I got a tons of compliments on my hair, makeup and clothes. I like it, I know I'm so vain haha.

Speaking of appearances and desirability, I got a date tonight! Now I know I'm going back next month, but still I haven't had a proper date in so long that I'm glad I'm going to stretch my comfort zone.

My friend Nissa had a 50% sale at her boutique Melrose Place and I raided the place! I got a lot of skirts, I took advantage of my girly mojo back to buy girly things ;)

Let me know what's going on for you this week!

October Empties


I haven't done a Empties post last month as I was in  transit and all that jazz. So the loot this month is not too big, as I didn't bring all my half empties things with me here. Guess I'll finish them in December! So those are the products I finished in Paris in October ;)

Nectar of Nature Cleansing Gel with Real Marseille Soap: Gee why have names so long? This is olive and lemon scented, not my favourite, but it would be well in a kitchen. It was a good soap, but again, I prefer sweet scent.

MUA Intense Colour Eyeliner Pencil: I really liked this eyeliner. It was only £1, got a sharpener and was creamy enough to put in my waterline (what I use black liner for). Would def repurchase!

Kenzo Jeu d'Amour Eau de Parfum Sample: I got a ton of these samples at Marionnaud. It is ok, but not one I would purchase.

Dior Star Studio Makeup Spectacular Brightening: I got this sample in 030 Medium Beige, which suits me. I really liked it, Anna likes it, a good one! Now one day I'll treat myself to a designer foundation, it might be this one or the Giorgio Armani Silk one.

L'Image High Intensity Color Shine Conditionner: You know the drill. I like those little tube of conditionner in home hair dyes.

Batiste Blush Dry Shampoo: You know I'm not a big fan of Batiste and that I prefer the Klorane dry shampoos. Well,  I liked this one. It's the best I've tried so far from the Batiste range (I've also tried the Original and the Tropical ones).

Dove Soaps: I like Dove soaps, they smell good, but I realise it's not the most natural option. I know it's not worst than shower gels but anyway!

I also finished a soap that I didn't have the packaging with me. So that makes 10 empties for October.

Did you finish lots of products in October?
