Pixi Beauty Wakeup Wisteria Review!

Here's a Pixi Beauty Nail Polish review! One of many to come (I have over 100 nail polishes and counting so expect more colours!)

This is my newest Pixi Purchase which I went to the store to collect, along other items I'd been waiting to get for a while!.

The colour is a lovely lilac colour not too bright but not too weak, lovely for every day or to match an outfit.

 Full spectrum of nail shades that withstand wear and tear while providing saturated colour with a high gloss finish.

Nails Inc Kensington Caviar Top and Basecoat Review!

After a bad experience overall with Nails Inc, ever since that point I've not bought anything from the brand, however before I used to purchase a few products here and there.

About 3 Months ago I decided to give the Kensington Caviar duo set a go, as in training they said it was a hero product (one that everyone should have and suits any skintone) boasted about it's omega 3 properties from the caviar and fast drying time.

Time spent trialing: a little over 3 months. Price: £18

A little about me...

Hello! My name is Jade, I'm 22 and currently living in Cardiff, the capitol of Wales, United Kingdom.
I have trained as a makeup artist in College on a part time course and have worked for Pixi Cosmetics, Benefit cosmetics and Smashbox Cosmetics, and have worked in New ID photography studio and worked on a few smaller fashion shows. I am a welsh beauty blogger and Cardiff beauty blogger.

I am currently starting back at university studying Art Practice. I love art and traveling and looking at art gallerys. In my spare time I like to read and play computer games.

I love makeup. I can't even describe how much I love it. It's great to express emotion and to show your unique personality. My favourite brands include Illamasqua, Too Faced, Pop Beauty, Revlon, YSL, Guerlain and not forgetting Pixi and Smashbox!  I have very sensitive combination skin so I am cautious with what I try, but I am willing to give anything a go. I do prefer smaller and independent brands but I do love bigger brands as well.
