I don't know about you but I feel like we have had the last of our summer for this year. I can't complain as it has been a pretty decent summer compared to some we have had previously. This summer I have been really loving blue nail polishes. Whether this is from pastels, to dark and glittery blues. My top five are shown before. As you can see I still have an obession with Barry M and their Gelly Hi-Shine polishes. I'll link all the colour shades below.

I think my favourite shade of blue this season has to be the pastel shade and I have been particularly been going back to the Tanya Burr Exclusive nail polish in Little Duck which I also talk about HERE. I think it is the perfect colour and goes with a lot of outfits. I think it can almost be cased as a light mint colour too. I also really like 'Blueberry'. I prefer the Gelly Hi-Shine polishes better as I think they apply better and this is a really nice summery blue colour. For evenings and nights out I have been loving the darker blue shades like 'cobalt blue'. I think it's subtle and still summery. I also really like the glittery shades. Whether this is wearing over the top or on it's own. This is also another great shade to wear in the evenings. I think I have absolutely out done summer polishes this season and I am excited to see what I go for during the autumn and winter as it is getting colder.



I was contacted by Makeupsocial to try out their new iPhone app (*) which goes along side their website. I was really excited to download and try out their app as I haven't really got anything like it on my phone and I haven't used their website before either. It's a free app and it will be available on android phones as well as iPhones soon.My first impressions of the app is that it is very easy to use and it is set out clearly and presentably. To start with, you have to either log in or create an account (through an email or facebook) to make a profile. You then have to fill in a 'beauty profile' asking about your skin type, hair type and eye colour etc. I think this is a really good step as you know that your newsfeed is going to be completely specific for you. The set up of the app is really lovely and you read about the latest makeup looks, trends and products from other people as well as professionals. You can also look at tons of reviews of makeup products and then easily be linked to where you can buy it online. It is really easy to post on your profile too. You simply chose what category it is under and you can write away adding pictures if you wish. My favourite feature of the app is that you tag a part of your picture (say the lips) and tag what it is you used so other people can find it easily. If you love makeup & blogging like me you will love this app!
