Okay so this is something I have been excited about for a while but haven’t written about it because I haven’t actually had the chance to try it but I was thinking I would let you know and you could try it!
Sephora has launched a foundation matching system which basically matches your exact skin color to a range of different foundations from all brands stored on their database. What’s the point of this? My friend Kat said that everybody has a foundation that at least suits them even if its not perfect so why do you need to know the exact color? While this is true, this foundation finding system is good because it will open up options for you from brands and colors and finishes that you might not have thought of. Best of all is that its free and you do not have to buy so why not? Check out for availability here and tell me how it goes!
For those of you in the UK, Boots No 7 has a similar concept to match foundation although it matches to their foundation you could get your exact color and then browse around?
I had not tried press-on nails since I was a little girl in the beauty department at Toys-R-Us disappointed by the durability of those nails. Well it seems like press-ons have come along way since then. The other day at the pub, my friend Courtney had her nails done with a french manicure, or so I thought, until she let me know they were actually press on nails from the drugstore. Of course I had to try them myself and since I had been wanting to try 1930s inspired ‘stiletto nails’ seen here I decided to go for the round ones.
I bought the kit below by Kiss for 6£ at boots which includes glue and enough for FOUR sets of nails! Overall I was pleased with the results because I think that they look like acrylic nails but a bit more natural since they are a bit thinner. They also have square nails and shorter nails which you can repaint. They are sturdy, super quick and easy to put on and last for about a week. You can find them at any drugstore like Boots or Target.
This is how the nails look when just glued on, they do look fake if you wear them alone. You also have to file the top of them to get them smooth (which I have not done in the picture below).
This is the color I chose. Inspired by Rihanna. Please mind my messy nail polish as I am quite impatient on myself.
What do you think? Have you tried them? Will you try them?
