MAC Year Of The Snake Collection

This is a collection I knew absolutely nothing about until it popped up on MAC's site last week. The collection includes eyeshadows, lipsticks, pigments and a beauty powder. I picked up one shadow, one lippy and the BP.

The packaging of this collection is amazing. And the designs on the products themselves are beautiful. I actually think this might be my favourite MAC packaging!

Nails Inc Concrete Texture polishes

The big thing for this year is texture. Every brand seems to be coming out with their own versions of textured polishes. OPI brought out their liquid sand which is amazingly pretty, I know Zoya are bringing some out that are similar to the OPI ones (matte texture with sparkly bits). Nails Inc released theirs last month, and so far I haven't seen or heard of anything similar.

The polish itself is very rough and textured - I can see why they dubbed it "concrete". It's not totally matte but it isn't shiny either. So far they have released four shades - London Wall, Monument, Marble Arch and Stonehenge. Two coats is all it takes for full opacity, and is also what Nails Inc recommends.

London Wall is a grey toned light-medium nude.

How I've "organised" my polish!

Hello! Long time no typey. Blog has been on a back burner for a long while now, and I'm going to try my damn best to not let that happen again. Lots of "real life" things going on, but anyways... This post is just showing how I've organised all my polish. It's not perfect and I'm already running out of space. It could be tons better, but I can't fit anything else in my room, so I'm kinda stuck.

I bought this unit in a sale off Very, it was around
£60. Turns out, I'm not too good at assembling furniture...it wobbles side to side :S But it does the job for now!
