The actual skin on our bodies is often something we neglect until we notice changes in our skin that we might not like. For me it’s when my legs start to get really itchy, my back becomes covered in spots, or I find random seriously dry patches. The past few weeks I’ve been using a huge range of products to really give my skin some TLC from the inside out. Like most people my skins screams at me when I overwork and tire myself out so I really needs lots of pampering and healing products around me at all times. Something different I’ve been trying the last few weeks are drinks to improve my skin, the LQ Liquid Health Advanced Skin Care retail at 10 x 50ml bottles for £29.99. They contain 14 active ingredients including aloe vera, hyaluronic acid and 5000mg of collagen, as well as lots of vitamins…

The thought of having beautiful natural nails has always been a desire of mine, but I’ve learnt very early on that it’s not going to be a reality. I’m not a nail biter, but occasionally when they get too long I’ll just rip them off and then instantly regret it. Whilst working at Lush it was impossible to have nice hands or nails, we were constantly in and out of water with different concoctions in it, often causing us to end up with dry hands, frail nails and no consideration at all towards acrylic nails. Now I am a free woman and working for a great boss (myself), I do whatever and having my nails done now come under my appearance for my job, and I basically just really like them. However, having your nails done time and time again isn’t good for them and I often get told off…

Leona Lewis was announced as the KISS Products new Uk ambassador last month at, what looks like, an amazing event for KISS and imPRESS’s new launches! Unfortunately, seen as nearly every single event is London-based, I was unable to attend. I don’t miss out on all the fun though and neither do you guys, well 5 of you, as Kiss have sent me a HUGE bundle of products from their latest releases to try out and dish out to you guys too! I tried to make them all as even and different as possible but there was quite a lot of the same products/colours so you may get duplicates…. One winner will be picked from my Twitter by RTing the tweet and the others will come from the Rafflecopter below, best of luck to you all! I’m really impressed with the new products at Kiss, there’s a real selection of different styles of…

Are LED nail sets any good for people who aren’t already good at nails? I’m rubbish at nails, truly. I can’t paint them properly, and when I do I catch everything as if I’m doing it on purpose and even when I have acrylic nails on I seem to only have them for 2 weeks before they’re dropping off or snapped in half. I’ve tried 2 really modern LED nail sets now, the first required too many coats for my clumsiness to cope with and to get a smooth nail was nearly impossible. It ended up drying so hard that my entire acrylic nail had to come off with it. However, this GELLED LED nail kit is far superior in every way possible.   I was immediately impressed by the innovative design of the light and how you can pick it up, as surely if you’re holding the contraption that…

Hi there, I’m Lucy from Lucy Loves. I love a lot of things including nail art, my cat, shoes, blogging, my husband and chocolate! As the gorgeous GG is off exploring Rome I’m stepping in for a post and I’m bringing you my Top 3 Nail Art Designs that I believe any one can do with the right tools and patience! My signature manicure is a skittle manicure- where each finger nail is a different design/colour/theme), so today I’ll be showing you quick designs that can be used as part of a skittle mani , full mani or as an accent nail.   For all my designs I’ve used OPI Nail Envy as my base coat and WAH London as my top coat (ensure nails are fairly dry, and ‘float’ the top coat to avoid dragging the design you’ve just painted).   For all nail art I really recommend using a…
