So I finally managed to get a models own nail polish! Toxic Apple to be exact! Models own toxic apple is part of the ice neon collection, I didn't get the whole collection as I only really wanted Toxic Apple.
There is absolutely no denying the fact that this nail polish is neon, its the most neon nail polish I have found! But to achieve the full neon effect I needed a whooping 4 coats to make it opaque! The formular of the nail polish is quite watery which makes each coat quite thin.
It laster 3 days before it chipped, which I know isn't great but I dont mind because I get bored of my nails quickly and chipping just makes me paint them quicker! I do know that most people wont like how quickly it chips.
The brush is quite small but thats just personal preference as I prefer the flat brushes like the ones the essie polishes come with.
Overall I do really like this nail polish and will wear it often because the colour is so gorgeous (even if it does take four coats!)
Have you tried any of the ice neon polishes?

Illamasqua Sheer Lip gloss in the shade Lily-Rose is described as a warm raspberry on their website which I have to disagree with slightly, its a very bright pink, it is warm but bright at the same time (if that's even possible) and stands out quite a bit, you can tell its bright just by looking at it on the applicator. Either way its a very beautiful colour and one that I really enjoy wearing.
The Sheer Lip gloss feels so smooth and moisturising on the lips and goes on really nicely and is sheer, but not as sheer as I was expecting it to be. At first all the bristles of the brush were suck together into to a hard point which made it very hard to apply evenly, but with use the bristles separated and it now apply's evenly and without a problem.
The lasting power is pretty incredible for a lip gloss, the glossy feel and look lasts around 2 hours without eating and drinking and after its worn off it leaves a lovely stain behind on the lips which lasts about 2-3 hours and doesn't feel drying at all.
The only thing that could be a bit off putting is the smell and taste, its a really sweet and can be a quite overpowering flavour, this doesn't bother me but if you are not one for strong scents and flavours then you might not like it.
|It actually looks a lot bright in person than it does on the pictures.|
Overall I really love Illamasquas sheer lip gloss and wear it quite often, if I cant find a good dupe when it finishes I would happily pay full price for it instead of the £5 I paid when it was in the sale.
You get 7ml in the tube for £14.50 and you can get it from the Illamasqua website.
Have you tried this before?

I'm very surprised it wasn't more, but I haven't yet found a face powder that doesn't irritate my skin!

There are two ways to do this, you can do it straight on your nail, which I tried and just made a big mess! the other way is much easier which is what I'm going to do.
1. Apply a base coat and paint your nails white.
2. Choose what colours you want and how many (I used six different colours)
3. On a plastic wallet or food bag use a dotting tool or a tooth pick to make dots close together and the same shape and size of your nail. (the letters are to remind me which one goes on which finger/thumb)
4. While they are still wet, use a clean cocktail stick ans gently swirl them together, do about two layers to make it stronger.
5. Leave them to dry for at least an hour, overnight if you can.
6. Gently peel them off, they should come of like a sticker (but not sticky) be very gentle and patient so you don't break them.
7. Apply to your nail and trim if needed, then go over with your top coat, make sure you smooth them down to avoid air bubbles.
8. If there are any nails left that don't have the "sticker" on them, use a dotting tool or cocktail stick and using the colours you have previously used dot them along the tips of your nails and finish with a top coat.
9. Enjoy your lovely nails!

Scratchiness aside this eye liner does have very good lasting power and lasts all day without smudging or fading which I find pretty impressive for the price. I haven't really tested the waterproof element so I cant say how well that works but other than the scratchy tip this is a wonderful green eye liner and I would definitely buy it again.
(it looks lovely with e.l.f's baked eye shadow in Enchanted review here)
However, the teal waterproof eye liner is a different story completely.
The only good thing about the teal version of this eye liner is the colour, I wouldn't describe it as teal myself more of a deep blue, but either way the colour is lovely. Unlike its hunter green friend this eye liner is a BIG let down! It goes on easily and opaque but it smudges and fades throughout the day and when it comes to taking it off you get a blue face! it smears all over your eye and face which is a pain to get off because the more you rub it, the more it spreads! the picture below gives you and idea of what happens when you try to remove it.
This one I wouldnt buy again! its amazing how two colours of the same product can be so different.
You can buy these here for £1.50
Have you tried these before?what do you think?

When I'm at home I always find myself browsing eBay for no reason and quite often I find something I like.
I've seen this crop up a few times and it seems quite good and at £2.80 with free postage its worth a try.

Angel hanging heart
