Glitter Stripes Nail Art with Color Club

Negative Space Nail Art with Models Own Colour Chromes: Gold, Silver and Rose - |

Collective Boots Beauty Haul

Boots UK Beauty Haul - My Current Picks from the Drugstore

Another haul post. I know, I know, but with all the sales and promotions it was just too hard to resist! My only excuse is that it didn't all happen at once, some were gifts and my makeup bag was in need of a refresh.
