New Nails: Utopia




I went to Boots the other day and took advantage of their 3 for 2 offers on most of their stuff. I bought 3 Model's Own nail polishes - Utopia, Pastel Pink & Lemon Meringue. Today I'm wearing Utopia. It is a beautiful ever so slightly pink toned white colour. The formula of this one is really creamy and lovely to apply. I'm wearing two coats with Seche Vite on top. Its such a unique colour, even the girls serving me commented on how nice it looked. This is the perfect alternative to plain white nail polishes as it definitely doesn't look like you've just put Tipp-Ex on your nails!


I also got some stuff from L'Oreal. I bought the Carbon Gloss Super Liner as my Illamasqua one is running out, Volume Million Lashes mascara in Extra Black and their Renewal Lash Serum. I made the mistake of buying the Clinique Bottom Lash mascara last month, don't get me wrong, its a great product but I didn't know it was a tubing mascara. As I tend to pick off my mascara whenever I'm stressed/tired/bored, I picked off the Bottom Lash mascara and loads of my lashes came out with it! I normally use Talika Lipocils to mend my lashes but I thought I'd give this Loreal one a try. I find the spoon applicator a bit weird to use but otherwise it seems ok so far. Still think I prefer the Talika one though.


Along with some boring make up wipes, my last 3 for 2 item was The Fab Pore from Soap & Glory. My skin has been looking a bit crappy lately. We've still not finished unpacking all of our stuff and I can't find my beloved Mario Badescu Special Cucumber Lotion anywhere :( So I'm hoping that this product will be the quick pick me up my skin so badly needs.

Has anyone tried any of these products? What are your thoughts on them? Any other great 3 for 2 items in Boots?

  1. I really want to try that L'oreal liner but I have so many gel/cream liners at the moment that I need to finish them first.

    I bought three Botanics toners from Boots in their 3 for 2 and they haven't really worked well..

  2. Such pretty colours! My nail polish scheme last summer was very much pastels, but I think I'll be going for brighter colours this year - but they look beautiful on you!
