Nails Inc!!

Hello lovelies :) I really wanted to share these nailpolishes with you all since I purchased them back in August!! The three nailpolishes are by Nails Inc and I absolutely love them!! I saw these at the Beauty and Spa Expo and bought 3 polishes for $25!  You can purchase these online at Asos or Beauty Bay.  My favourite one of the lot is "Shoreditch", I love pinks and reds so this neon pink definitely caught my eye! I was also quite fascinated with the blue polish "Baker Street" and I simply adore the 3D glitter polish "Sloane Street" (although it took a good 20 mins to get it off!)

The consistency, opaqueness and colour is amazing and I am excited to get my hands on more colours from Nails Inc! Check out the swatches below and let me know what you think :)

As always, I used Sally Hansen Maximum Growth base coat and Out The Door topcoat. Colours L-R: Baker Street, Shoreditch, Sloane Street

Natural makeup tutorial - "Pistol" featuring the Naked 2 palette

I have recently fallen in love with the Naked 2 palette all over again and decided to do a tutorial mini-series featuring the metallic shades in the palette.

Today I am showcasing "Pistol" a beautiful dark grey which is very versatile - the colour that ends up on your eyelids depends on the brush you use!  For most of the eyeshadow application, I used the Sigma E25 which is my all time favourite eyeshadow brush (I only have one, I really need to order a back-up incase anything happens to this one...) By using this brush, it creates a wash of the Pistol eyeshadow all over the eyelid which isn't too heavy for a daytime makeup look :)

The photos below are without flash and with flash, respectively.

Products used:
Naked 2 palette
The Balm tinted moisturiser
Garnier roll-on concealer
Inglot face powder
Urban Decay eyeshadow primer potion
Pixi nude palette
Maybelline line stiletto liquid eyeliner
Maybelline Falsies Flared mascara
Gorgeous cosmetics lipstick in rose velvet

Jazushi in Surry Hills

This year I spent my birthday with the girls at Jazushi - a cozy Japanese restaurant offering live jazz. I loved the food, the company and the entertainment, it was definitely a memorable night :)  We ordered the set menu which was just absolutely divine - Japanese food is just sooo good!

First course was Salmon and Kingfish Carpaccio.

Second course was Green Tea Noodle salad. This was honestly the best salad I have ever tasted. The dressing was super delicious. I could have easily eaten another plate of this!!

Third course was the Grilled Silver Cod - melt in your mouth goodness!!

Fourth course was the famous camembert tempura - everyone loved the texture and the taste of this :)

Fifth course was a selection of sushi and nigiri

Sixth course was the JFC (Jazushi Fried Chicken) which came with a "namban" type of sauce.

Seventh course was the Kakuni Kurobuta Pork Belly.

Eighth course was the Wagyu Sirloin steak.

Ninth course was dessert! Creme Brulee with cheese cake and a green tea icecream!

Spring OOTD #1 and Lookbook.nu!

I wasn't sure if I wanted to upload my first spring OOTD on Youtube - the lighting was just horrendous and editing a video is not like editing photos, you can't fix the colours or vibrance on my video editing software. Boo.  Nevertheless I decided to post it up so here it is (so just ignore the terrible lighting).

As this is the first OOTD for Spring I have opened a Lookbook.nu account! Find me HERE.

What I'm wearing!
Saba heels
J Brand jeans
Sportsgirl lace top
Botkier bag
House of Harlow necklace
Swarovski earrings
