Babyliss PRO Perfect Curl

OMG !!!! I have just stumbled upon the most amazing product I have ever seen.

What is this contraption I hear you ask.  Well if you struggle with curling your hair the way I do I call it a god send.  You basically take a section of hair, clamp it in the device and it sucks in your hair.  You wait for a few seconds release the clamp and out comes a perfectly curled piece of hair.  It's like magic !!!

Check out the video below:

I was truly amazed when I saw it and it's gone straight to the top of my Beauty Wish List.  

Here's a brief outline of product specifics:

From longer lengths to shorter styles, no matter what the hair type, the Perfect Curl will create shiny, long-lasting curls, every time.
  • Ceramic curl chamber for smooth and shiny curl creation
  • 3 timer settings for looser waves, soft curls or more defined curls
  • 3 heat settings; 190°C, 210°C and 230°C for long lasting results on different hair types
  • Powerful heating system ready to use in seconds with ultra-fast heat recovery
  • Curl direction control for either a uniform or natural look
  • Suitable for shorter and longer hair lengths
  • Heat ready indicator light
  • Auto shut off
  • Salon length swivel cord

It will be available to purchase from the end of March from Sally's and Capital Hairdressing.  It's not cheap though £120+VAT (that's £144 to me and you).  I can't wait to check this out, what are your thoughts on this ?

OPI Liquid Sand - Stay The Night

Hey Everyone

So I'm going to admit as well as being a makeup junkie I'm also a massive polish junkie.  I love anything new, innovative and a little bit different so when I saw the OPI Liquid Sand polishes I kinda fell in love.
  These were released in the OPI Mariah Carey Collection and the one I purchased is called Stay The Night.  It has a black base with red glitter.  When you apply the polish it goes on glossy but as it dries it leaves a matte, textured finish with sparky red glitter particles running through it. 

It leaves a beautiful effect and under the light the red glitter sparkles against the matte black sandy finish.


The staying power of this varnish is above average I would say.  I have had it on since Tuesday and it has only just started to show signs of chipping along the edges.  If you wanted to make it last longer you could pop on a top coat after a few days.  This would give you a glossy finish that's just as nice as the matte but will take away the sandy texture.
I guess taking it off will be a bit of a chore.  Looks like I will be wrapping my fingernails up in aluminum foil again but between you and me I think it's worth it.
I'd definitely recommend this one if you're looking for something a little different to add to your collection.
Do you like the new textured polish trend or are you more of a traditionalist when it comes to polish?
