Jacava London Woodlanders Collection Swatches & Review

Hello again – two posts in two days, crazy! I’ve got a bit more of a blogging mojo the last few days, so thought I’d make the most of it :)

Jacava London have kindly sent me three of the new Woodlanders Collection nail polishes to try out and review :) I always love Jacava polishes as they have a consistently great formula, so I was excited to try these new cremes. :) The collection is Autumn/Winter themed, and all of the colours are very appropriate for the season. I was asked to choose a few I’d like to try so I picked the following three.

This may sound strange but my favourite thing about Jacava is the shape of the bottle – it reminds me of a smooth pebble (it’s the little things that please me the most!).

#NailIt4Rhinos Nail Art – Save the Rhino

Hey everyone! Bet you’re surprised to see me on a little ol’ Tuesday! :) Hope you’re having a good week so far. Today I have an important cause to bring to your attention – it’s the #NailIt4Rhinos campaign by Save the Rhino, which will hopefully be all over your social channels today as it’s World Rhino Day (22nd September)!

Save the Rhino are a UK conservation charity who are dedicated to the protection of all 5 rhino species in the world. Rhino poaching as at an all time high with a devastating 95% reduction in live rhinos since the beginning of the 20th century. In the world today there are just 29,000 rhinos left living in the wild, each of which are highly threatened by the poaching trade. In South Africa alone, one rhino is killed every 8 hours, and if poaching continues at its current rate there will be no rhinos left in the wild in just 11 years time. Save the Rhino hope that the #NailIt4Rhinos campaign will help raise awareness of the threat of poaching, but also (on a happier note) to raise donations for the charity.

Oh also, I’ve reshaped my nails! :) let me know what you think!

Essence Summer Nail Art Blogger Challenge

Hey everyone! I’m sorry I’ve been away for a couple of weeks. I’ve been having a bit of a rough time of things lately, but I’m hoping if I pour my attention into little projects like blogging more often and improving my site, it’ll help distract me! Hope you’re all doing well.

At the end of August (yup… sorry Essence!) I was kindly sent a goody bag of Essence products to create a nail art look with, as an entry to the Essence Summer Nail Art Blogger Challenge. I think this may be a farewell wave to the summer… as it’s now midway through September and increasingly rainy and cold in England!

Anyway, here’s the look I came up with :)

BruzZ Nail Brush Review

Hey everyone! Hope you’re having a good week – despite the miserable weather we have at the moment!

A little while ago I was kindly sent the BruzZ nail brush to try out. It’s billed as ‘the most hygienic nail brush in the world’ as it’s made of antibacterial bristles, which are removable and dishwasher safe, so they can be cleaned thoroughly to within an inch of their lives!

As with a normal nail brush, you start off by squeezing some soap into the centre, with a little warm water, and get scrubbing. The BruzZ is specially designed to minimise spray from the brush (which is handy, since somehow nail brush spray ALWAYS stains the mirror!). It’s also vanilla scented.
