Barry M, home of the wonderful Dazzle Dusts, has done it again with their latest collection of summer polishes. Never one to ignore a trend (grey, turquoise and racing green were all added to their colour palette last year), they’ve brought out five new colours to match this year’s spring/summer palette.

Summer Days Are Coming Friday, March 20, 2009

Just a quick post to share three of the polishes I’ve pawed from the latest collection by China Glaze, entitled Summer Days.

The collection contains 6 of their famous ‘glass flecked’ polishes, which give a beautiful glittering effect especially in sunlight. Somewhat like the effect of sunshine on the water. These three were the ones that caught my eye, but they also have an orange, a red, and another deep pink/red.

I will be swatching these soon, but in the meantime swatches of the whole collection can be seen here:

They’re available to buy from my favourite etailers – Head2Toe Beauty, 8ty8 Beauty, and Transdesign.

Aromaleigh Does Twilight Friday, March 6, 2009

I haven’t tried these powders myself, but as a big Twilight fan, I had to post!
Miss K at Aromaleigh has designed three body powders to allow you to mimic the ‘sparkling diamonds’ skin effect that the beautiful vampires in the series have.
Personally I have no idea how they’d work on me – in winter rather than being ‘pale and interesting’ I tend to go more of a ‘winter porridge grey’, but the effects sound beautiful, and I imagine they’d be great on a night out. Click the pic to jump to the full post on the Aromaleigh blog.

Quick Archetype Cosmetics Update Friday, March 6, 2009

I’ve had a few messages from people asking me how I’ve gotten on with Archetype cosmetics. Some time back there was a big blow up about how it was taking months to ship orders, orders didn’t arrive etc etc.
After this, Holly took on a lady named Kelli to help fill orders and keep up with emails and things got better – on 1st January they were supposedly down to a two and a half week backlog, and turnaround time was due to be down to 1 week.
However – there have been no more updates since then.

My advice? Trust your own instinct. If you want to place an order, email them first to ask about turnaround time so you have a definite answer from them, and be prepared to keep in contact if need be.

Personally, I love the colours I have from them – the texture is nice, they are well pigmented and the sparklies are dense and vibrant (nothing worse than getting a sparkly colour that doesn’t sparkle!). The price is also so low that I am willing to wait for them to turn up. However, that’s my personal opinion – it you don’t want to wait, you may be better off not ordering.

Ciao for now kitty-cats x

Whilst I write some more nail and makeup related posts, I thought I’d share the spoils of my lastest photoshoot, inspired by the book Goodbye to Berlin.

Hayley T was the model. All photographs are copyrighted, so no cat burglary!

More pictures after the jump!

Once again, sorry to everyone for not posting for so long. Christmas came and went along with a whole heap of work, and I’ve only just got back on a blogging roll. However, I am promising to be a regular poster now! New posts will be going up tomorrow, and I will be updating my Blogroll to introduct you to some of my favourite places!

Till tomorrow, kittycats!
