17 Jun [#365BeautyTips] Winter Nails
The twenty-third week of #365BeautyTips has come to an end and as promised, I have put together a round-up post which puts all the beauty tips, shared this week, in one place. The idea is to share any extra information and answer the questions that you may have asked on my social media posts. Remember that if you want to stay up to date with my 365 days of beauty challenge, then follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
THIS WEEK’S THEME IS… WINTER NAILS
#365BEAUTYTIPS – DAY: 162
I doubt I’m going to be painting my nails everyday this week, but I thought I’d show off my current mani to kick start this week’s theme. Red is my go-to, no matter the weather or season, and this shade from CATRICE in 18-Bloody Mary To Go is just the right pop of colour. I paired it with a new addition from the CATRICE range which is there Matt & More top coat that not only mattifies the nail but gives it the slightest hint of shimmer. I especially like this top coat pairing, as the red may have been a little too bright for a typical winter’s day but the matte just pulls it together.

I really enjoyed the themed days – what themes would you like to see next?
