Inglot Nail Enamel - 715

Here is this weeks ‘Nails of the Day’ featuring the Inglot Nail Enamel in the shade ‘715’. This as you can see is a beautiful matte polish. The pictures show the colour perfectly, I’d say this is best described as a putty-nude, as it has a slight cool undertone to it.
The nail enamel formula is wonderful to use, it’s super creamy and after applying two thin coats my nails were completely covered. I have to say this Inglot Nail Enamel doesn’t seem to have much of a ‘nail polish’ smell to it, making it very pleasant to use. I’m not sure if it’s just the matte polishes or if this is something you’d find with all the Inglot range. I only have this one polish from Inglot so I’d be interested to hear from others who use their nail enamel. Last but not least lets not forget to mention how well this polish lasts! Considering you don’t apply top coat, this polish lasted 3 days before it chipped (something that rarely happens with my nails).
Overall I’m very impressed with the Inglot Nail Enamel, and look forward to trying more in the future…...after all a girl can never have too many nail polishes!!!

Tantrum Childrens Shampoo & Conditioner

“Tantrum is a revolutionary new concept in children’s hairdressing designed to make the experience better for both child and parent.The Tantrum salon, situated on the exclusive Kings Road in London, is truly one of a kind and will make any visit a memorable experience. The salon is split over two floors, catering to younger and older children separately. The ground floor, called Moon, is for 7 year olds and under, while the exclusive basement, called Vogue, is for 8 year olds and over. Moon and Vogue are very different in terms of how they are designed but both are guaranteed to make you leave with a smile.”

I’d been looking into Tantrum online, so I was very pleased to find their hair care range in my local Asda Store. I chose ‘My Clever Coconut Shampoo’ and ‘My (Very) Kool Coconut Conditioner for Little Miss. Both of these products nourish the hair, leaving it feeling soft and looking shiny.
The shampoo was nice and concentrated so I didn’t need a lot to get a good lather. Our little lady has fine hair which is below her shoulders, so I’ve found it can be a little on the tangley side if I don’t use conditioner; something I’d never used on a regular basis as some I’d tried made her hair flyaway. This one is lovely though, its conditioning enough to detangle her hair, and yet mild enough to avoid the flyaway static look.
I also loved the coconut fragrance, it wasn’t overpowering, but you could still smell it on her hair the next day. One thing to note, which is a big bug-bear for me, is the bottle size (and I have no idea why companies do this!) The shampoo is a generous 300ml and the conditioner is just 200ml….why they don’t do even quantities I’ll never know!
As a final point, all Tantrum products are allergen free, contain no parabens and are NOT tested on animals.

Tantrum ‘My Clever Coconut Shampoo’ £3.00
Tantrum ‘My (Very) Kool Coconut Conditioner’ £3.00

Winter Nails 2014

Lets have a look at my top 3 go-to nails polishes for this season. Winter is upon us, so I always feel it’s time to darker down the colours slightly. First up is the Barry M Matte Nail Paint in Espresso. I normally go for red shades during the winter so this is my trump card. In my opinion you can’t beat this black matte shade! Next up is Leighton Denny in Vamp, which is a deep wine shade. This has a fabulous high shine creme finish and covers very well. I normally wear this with two coats however you can add more depth by applying a third coat of colour. Finally is my trust OPI Nail Lacquer in 'Midnight In Moscow'. Again similar in colour to the Leighton Denny polish however this has the most glorious shimmer in, giving a very festive feeling to my nails.

Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo & Conditioner

Well well it’s been quite a while since I last wrote about hair care products. Aussie Miracle Moist Shampoo and Conditioner are ideal for dry damaged or (as Aussie say) ‘Unhappy’ hair. I purchased these for our holiday, so I opted for the 75ml travel size instead of the full size (to make my packing a little easier). The water is very hard in Zurich compared to our water at home (we have a softener), so I knew my hair would need a shampoo and conditioner that would provide that extra boost of moisture. The Aussie Miracle Moist range therefore was the perfect selection.
Firstly I just love the fragrance! Aussie Miracle Moist contains Australian Macadamia Nut Oil, giving it a very distinctive smell. Both shampoo and conditioner have a nice, thick consistency so you don’t need a lot of product. I found they worked well in making sure my locks stayed smooth and manageable during our time away, and since I only needed very little product per wash, the 75ml bottles were the perfect size for our holiday.
The only downside to using Aussie Miracle Moist is that my hair lost its volume. I had to use my root boost spray as well as volume mousse to blowdry and style my hair. It’s a small price to pay though for tangle-free hair while away from home.

Back soon with more hair care products xx
