My new favourite nail polish: ELF’s Metal Madness!

I was given this beautiful metallic polish as part of a free shipping offer back in December when I bought products worth more than £10 in total.

This is what I bought:

My December ELF Haul

There are several things in this haul that I like (actually almost everything!) and hopefully I will be reviewing them over the next few days.

But this post is about the metallic polish Metal Madness which I love!

The sparkles are fine and multicolored not all silvery like it’s shown on the first picture.

This is shown better on these next pictures (sorry for the blur…)

Love how the lights get reflected on the nails.

In terms of texture, this is much better than other ELF polishes and two coats are enough to give good coverage. Not a pain to remove either. And it lasted good solid 4 days before it started chipping (always with base and top coats, of course). And it’s only £1.50, well, actually for me it was free, even better!

So all in all this is definitely a winner for me.

So do you girls have this?

Which is your favourite nail polish at the moment?

Update: This is now on sale at only £1 at ELF’s website!


Best Product of 2010:Lip Balm

I’ve been using these almost every single day since I bought them !


ELF and Body Shop Lip balm/gloss


This is actually an old picture. There’s not so much left of them now.

I like the texture and their scent is great. The price (£1.50 for the ELf, and £1 for the BS one) is unbeatable!

Unfortunately ELF is discontinuing these (why? oh why?) but I have a couple of them as back up. My favourite by far is the pink one.

These have been reviewed before so I’ll stop now.

Hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!



Golden Goddess combo

Hope you’re enjoying your holidays if you are lucky enough to have some time off these days.

Inspired by Nicolettas’s teal polish I tried this nail polish combo for Christmas Eve dinner+Christmas days lunch:


Glittered nails
OPI Boris & Natasha + ELF Golden Goddess

I did that with one coat of OPI’s Boris & Natasha and one coat of the superglittery Golden Goddess from OPI.

One of my sisters didn’t exactly liked it and the other one said that I looked like a teenager…

I liked it!

What do you think?

Are you wearing any glitter on your nails these days?

This is what I got in my email inbox today:

ELF SCARY savings promotion

For those of you who are in the US this might be useful.

I’ve complained here about the lack of promotions at this side of the pond compared to the Americas…but that’s not what I want to talk about today…

ELF proposes  four different looks  for this Halloween (using their products obviously  but you can easily swap them for other brands):






Which one is your favourite?

I specially like the Red Lips one, tres French Chic.

They don’t look very striking for Halloween looks but they are pretty  nevertheless. If you like them you can go to their website and see tutorials on how to recreate these looks.



I don’t think I’ll dress any different for Halloween (just visiting some old friends in Spain that weekend).



How about you? Are you going to wear a costume? Get some crazy make up?

New ELF Nail Polish: Punk Purple

Seriously…not sure why this polish is named purple at all but anyway…

ELF Punk Purple without Flash

Wasn’t a fan of the color at first, but slowly but surely it caught on me. It’s a pretty dark fuchsia (not a purple unless I’m loosing my eyesight here).

ELF Punk Purple with Flash

In terms of consistency I was pretty surprised, normally ELF nail polishes are quite disappointing but with this one almost one coat was enough. I know! Miracles do happen after all…

And it lasted 4-5 days before it started chipping so not bad at all for £1.50 polish. Of course this was with both base and top coat.

After all this pink I think I’m in the mood for blue nails now…


So it seems I need to check the ELF  Facebook page for offer codes (uhmm…not a huge fan of Facebook but…) .

Don’t really understand why they cannot send an email to previous customers (like ELF US does) but not going to complain too loud.

Here’s what I found in the ELF Facebook page this morning:

Free shipping on www.eyeslipsface.co.uk. UK Customers please use the code MOREFORYOUUK, EU Customers use MOREFORYOUEU at checkout.

The free shipping discount is valid with purchases over £10 (before shipping is added). This offer ends at 10am (UK) 6 October 2010.

So hurry! And apologies for not posing this before!

I already ordered some stuff…didn’t I tell myself that I wasn’t going to buy more make up this fall? Tshh…
