A Five Minute Gel Manicure Using Your Favourite Polish

If you're a regular over on my youtube channel then you may have heard me go on about how utterly horrendous my nails are and how I can never get a nail polish to last more than about 5 seconds. Oh how things have changed.
I was lucky enough to get sent a Gel Touch Starter Kit* after talking to the lovely ladies at the Debenhams Press day a month or so ago and I was SO excited to try it out. I'd tried something similar before last year when I invested in Sensationail but the polishes are all so expensive and there isn't a great range of shades so it ended up being banished to the back of a drawer. The Gel Touch kit though is super awesome because it's basically a gel top coat and you can use your favourite polish undernearth. SO... this means that you can change up your manni on a regular basis whilst also maintaining chip free goodness for up to 10 days! It's also insanely quick... and only takes 60 seconds to set! I tend to go for two coats of gel to make it super thick and shiny but for one coat you're looking at 3 minutes to set all of your nails! How speedy is that!
 I spoke a little bit about the kit in my June Favourites video but to give you a quick run down: it will totally depend on your nails as to whether you get a full 10 days wear out of your gel mani but even on my nails (which are the worst in the universe) I got around a week so it must be good!
If you fancy taking a peek at just how easy it is, I created a video showing you my manicure routine which you can watch below:

What's your favourite polish right now? I feel a splurge coming on..

Also, just a quick note to say thanks so much for sticking with me whilst I'm going through my Paramedic training. It's been super intense and because of that my blog has suffered - which has made me so incredibly sad.. I miss you guys! I'm trying my absolute best and promise that in a few months it will all settle down again!
So much love!

June Beauty Favourites

It's that time again - 'Where did the Month go?? - Where did that first half of the Year go?!?! ' 
In case you guys haven't popped over to my youtube channel  then you might not now how insanely in love with the Makeup Forever Studio Case I am. It's basically the perfect selection of buttery, pigmented eyeshadows and I haven't put it down all month. I've also discovered a few new products and fell in love with a few new ones so all in all, I'd say it's been a pretty good month all in all! 
If you fancy hearing me ramble on about all of the products then you can watch the video below!

I'd love to know what your favourite things have been for the Month of June! Pop some in the comments below!
