Raspcherry finally Shatters !

The whole world has been crackling etc for such a long time 
but I just could not get into it 
It just reminds me of messy nail polish 
but done correctly in the right combination i have seen some very pretty pictures 
but I felt maybe its something very school - girl like 

But I finally Crack-led when I picked up a gold nails inc nails effect polish 
but I still did not use it and Ive had it a few months now 

And earlier this week I purchased the OPI gold shatter and finally used it over my OPI Malaga Wine
I think its a gorgeous combination 
perfect for christmas or any asian bride or bollywood style outfit 

For comparison i will try and do a nails inc crackle so you can see the two together 

Would love to know/ see some of your combos <3

NOTD :- OPI Malaga Wine

If your looking for a gorgeous wine red 
this is the colour for you 
It is one of OPI's top best sellers 
and I think its in the classic collection -but please dont quote me on that just in case 

This is such a vampy colour but is still sophisticated enough to wear in a high profile job or party, night out, wedding etc  

In the pic is just one coat of OPI malaga wine over nails inc caviar base coat 

As always its quite difficult to paint your nails with a 3 year old princess on standby demanding her nails be done first

The pics are taken in broad daylight but seem to make the nail lacquer look more cherry red
but the nail polish is more of a black cherry shade 

What are you wearing on your nails ?

Review:- MAC carry all

MAC Carry all 
Train case 
designed by Matt Murphy

I bought this because It holds more product and is lightweight for portability 
whether its for actual travel or just to move location for example when i need to do my makeup in another room or at my parents house etc 

It fits alot of products 
and has handy little loops to hold products around the edges 

It has a long shoulder strap which can be adjusted and made shorter

and has an internal zipped pocket to keep smaller items safe and easier to find 

It even comes in a protective dust bag which is very handy to keep it clean in between uses or for travel 

I dont like the mirror in it 
its a weird cheapy plasticy tacky mirror but its still nice to have a mirror in the case 
I just wish it was a proper mirror

The bag is abit expensive -near the £50 mark from memory 
but its alot cheaper than the £200 mac pro travel case 

The bag also comes with authenticity cards 

I hope you found this review helpful 

Do you have any mac bags/cases, how are you finding them ? 
if you have reviewed one leave a link for me to see

NOTD:- Revlon Gray Suede 030

 Nails of the day revlon gray suede 030

This nail polish is the perfect nude shade for darker skintones 
it would be a nude shade for medium to medium dark skintones 
and a pretty polish colour on all other skintones 

Its a colour that is great to use on days where your not to sure about what you want to wear on your nails 
and it gives a very smart polished look 
so great for interviews, work or an appearance in court 


NOTD:- Revlon Lilac pastelle 031

 Revlon nail polishes are affordable, you get alot of product for the price about £6.29 it is good quality, as it does not have alot of nasty chemicals, it does dry in about 5 minutes and one coat can be reasonable for anyone who like me cannot be bothered with multiple coats.

Revlon Lilac pastelle 031 is a pretty pastel shade, its quite opaque, and above is one coat.
I think this colour is very complimentary of all skintones from palest ivory to the darkest mocha skintones 

Do you have this shade?
which revlon shades do you own ?
