Testing: Gel Nailpolishes

My nails are the worst when it comes to wearing nailpolish. Regular polish will last perfectly on my nails for about six hours before it starts chipping. I’ve tried everything, but I think my nails are just too brittle. Gel nailpolish has been around for a while, and seems like a great solution to my problem. Doing gel manicures at home has become very accessible nowadays, so I was really excited to try it!

A while back, I received a gel nailpolish set from Madam Glam. The gel polishes are new in their collection, so I wanted to try them out! Before investing in a UV/LED lamp (Madam Glam doesn’t sell one), I wanted to see how I liked the polishes. So I met up with a friend who owns two gel nailpolish sets, with lamps. I decided to try all three gel polish sets, so I could compare the Madam Glam gel polish to the Essence Gel Nails At Home and Sensationail.

Irresistible Me Diamond Straightening Iron

I’m reviewing a straightening iron today! What? Yeah! I talked about wanting to start experimenting with heat tools in a video a while back, and now that I’m trying to properly start up my MUA career that also involves some hair styling, I need to know how to use these things. Irresistible Me contacted me and asked whether I’d like to review their straightening iron, and I thought this would be the perfect opportunity for me to familiarise myself with heat tools. Let’s see if this is the right tool for that!

So here is my review of the Irresistible Me Diamond straightening iron!

Purging & Organising My Makeup

When October comes around and I start working on Halloween tutorials, my makeup collection takes a hit. Products get mixed up, SFX stuff makes its way into my daily stash, things go missing, and the mess… Oh, the mess! A thorough purge and cleanse is necessary.

I took a few hours out of my day to take all my makeup out of the drawers, clean the products, throw some out, and put them back in a more orderly fashion.

I hope watching this will inspire some of you to go through your collections as well. It needs to be done every now and then!
