Festival nails! Go neon!


Reviewed by Donna, written by Tams

With Glastonbury going on Donna and I are starting to get excited for V Fest in around 6 weeks and we’re turning our attention to all things fashion and beauty when at a festival.Donna2

I got this Barry M Special Edition Nail paint free yesterday and it isn’t my colour so I handed it over to my favourite neon-loving friend, Donna. The colour is bright and summery and perfect to stand out at a festival. Donna absolutely loves the colour and will probably need to re-purchase before we get anywhere near V!

Donna found it really easy to apply and the results are awesome. This is a limited edition summer nail paint so if you love it, probably best to stock up now. I absolutely love the on-trend Aztec pattern on the bottle too.

The shade is Vernis a Onlges and having seen it on Donna’s nails I can admit I may be changing my mind about the colour.. sexy, summery and makes a statement.

What Donna loves most: The vibrant colour.

Try it: £2,99, www.barrym.com

I say: Team it with a bright eyeshadow for the real wow-factor in the festival crowds.



Figs & Rouge Lip Balm Review

Another multi-tasker to add to your festival essentials!

This is more than just a lip balm, although it does do that very well too. It is just as important to take care of your lips as any other part of your body, after all the lips are going to feel the kisses of that summer romance! This lip balm is just what my dried up lips needed this morning after a night wearing letter-box-red lipstick last night!

I tried it in Cherry Blossom as pictured but it is also available in Coco Rose and Mocha Orange. It is subtle and beautiful on and really takes care of your lips. It is in a handy hygenic tube too and can be applied with or without fingers, perfect for when you’d rather not touch your lips! (Think after the tube, at festivals)

But this isn’t all this fabulous balm does, add it to your eyelids for a quick and easy shimmer or your cuticles for a quick nail rescue! It’s packed full of antioxidants and is fab at festivals as an all rounder. It’s also great for dry elbows and knees, you need little else for Glastonbury this year when you have this packed!

What I love: It’s a fab all rounder and the colour is gorgeous.

What I liked least: It can be tricky to get it on evenly when used straight from the tube.

Try it: RRP £5.00, www.feelunique.com
