Boots 17 Magnetized Nail Polish in Blue & OPI in Crown Me Already

Here are today's nails, Boots 17 Magnetized Nail Polish in Blue and OPI in Crown Me Already on the ring fingers.
The pictures were taken of my Iphone so they aren't as clear as usual, sorry.

The Boots 17 Magnetized polish is actually really good and at the moment it's on special offer for £4.99 (normal price £5.99). It's the cheapest of the magnet polishes out at the moment and goes on really smooth and the magnet is nice and strong so it works quickly, I can see myself getting more of these.

OPI Crown Me Already is a polish I've wanted for a while now (since Lorraine at TheCurrentCustom showed it in one of her videos) I finally broke down and bought it the other day and it's amazingly beautiful and perfect for the upcoming party season.

What are you wearing on you nails today?

Illamasqua Theater of the Nameless Haul & Review

As soon as I saw Illamasqua's new collection I knew which Items I was going to get, these 3 jumped at me straight away!
I would have also loved to get the lipgloss in Belladonna as I adore the colour but as I've decided I no longer like lipgloss (far to sticky) I decided to give it a miss.
Here's what I got:

Powder Blusher in Ambition

This as replaced the vast majority of my blushers,with the exception of MAC Well Dressed and The Balm Frat Boy! It's the most perfect neutral peachy shade with an hint of shimmer and it perfect for pale, yellow toned skin like mine as it seems to lift the complexion.
Worth every penny and the must have item of the collection!

Pure Pigment in Berber

(Berber on the left, Ambition on the right)
I love this but haven't had a chance to wear it out yet, I find it quite hard to pull off a it can make my eyes look sore.
It's a beautiful burnt cranberry shade with loads of fine golden shimmer, it almost looks wet when it's on.
I think the best way to wear it would be with loads of black eyeliner and lashing of mascara.

Nail Varnish in Vice

A lovely rich cranberry shade with a cool satin finish, really pretty and unusual.
Goes on nice a smooth and pretty much covered fully in one coat however, because of the finish it showed up the scratches a lot faster than normal.
Not sure how I feel about these new dull finishes on nail polish, I don't dislike it but I much prefer the classic, shiny finish a top coat gives.

What did you think of the new Illamasqua Collection? What items did you get?

Essie Angora Cardi Swatch

Essie Angora Cardi is one of those shades that instantly make you think of autumn, it's a deep, dusty plum with an hint of brown and looks very flattering on pale skin.
It's a colour thats quite versatile and goes with a lot of different outfits and is suitable for both day and night time.

Angora Cardi is the perfect example of a good Essie polish, the consistency is perfect and I could have got away with one coat, if only they got it spot on with the rest of the range.

What are you favourite autumn polishes?

Garnier Miracle Skin Perfector Daily All-In-One BB Cream

Can't say I've been to impressed with the whole BB Cream craze that seems to be so popular at the moment, I find them to be no better than tinted moisturiser and usually leave an ashy tone to the skin, so I'm actually quite surprised by how much I do like the Garnier version.

I'm still not convinced on how it's any different to a tinted moisturiser but it provides nice sheer dewy coverage and feels lightweight on the skin, I find I get the best application when I apply with fingers I tried a brush and found it took ages for the product to sink in.

I have combination skin that's prone to getting oily on the T-Zone and I have to use a powder to set this once in the morning and once at lunch otherwise I'm too shiny, I do find it lasts quite well on my skin and I've noticed when I remove my make-up at night my skin feels really soft and hydrated.

One thing I'm disappointed in is the colour range, it's only available in two shades (light & medium) so you might find it hard to find a shade that matches you, I have it in shade light and it matches me really well and would probably match anyone who's skintone is between a NC20/NC30, not too sure how the medium shade would work out.

Have you tried Garnier's BB Cream? What did you think of it?
