MUA Fur Effect Nails: Fluff and Cuddles Review

MUA are an amazingly cheap brand here in the UK. Originally all their products were £1. Absolute bargain! You can still get alot of their basic products for £1 but the rest of the range has gone a little more upmarket. They've recently bought out a new range of Fur-Effect nail felt, usually priced at £3 but are currently only £2 in Superdrug!! I've never tried the felt look before, I was previously against even trying it because I really didn't think I'd like the feel of them. How wrong was I?!
This is Fluff and Cuddles over Max Factor - Intense Plum.

Del Sol - Trick or Treat

My sister works on the cruise ships. She recently came back from 6 months away and got me an awesome nail polish! Del Sol is a brand of colour-changing goodness originally from Utah. This particular polish is Trick or Treat - an awesome orange micro glitter that changes to black in the sun. Unfortunately, here in the UK we've had a lack of sun for a while! So at the minute, I'm showing you this polish as it comes with no sun. Clearly this polish was meant for Halloween but it's still pretty epic all year round!
I used a base coat of Collection 2000 - Cloud Nine and sponged on Del Sol - Trick or Treat. On my ring finger I did three coats of the glitter. I finished with a coat of Seche Vite.

Matching jumper and nails!


I hope you've all had a wonderful festive season! I took a little time out from blogging to spend time with my family and friends and generally chill out during my time off from uni. It's been great but I've definitely missed blogging. For christmas I got a kind-of-christmas jumper off my boyfriend. I love matching my nails to my outfits so this is exactly that.

I used Barry M - Blue Plum, Nails Inc - St James and Essie - Ballet Slipper for this look. I created the zig zag with a striper brush and finished with a coat of Seche Vite.
