NYK1 Nailac "Shellac" Starter Kit

Wednesday, 26 November 2014






We're featuring our pick of the best beauty-related Christmas presents this week, and here we have a pro-gel nails kit for less than the price of those consumer ones you can get in Boots.  For £49.95 you can get a two colours, a UV lamp, and all the assorted top and basecoats, plus preparation bits and pieces in the NYK1 Nailac Starter Kit, which is rather amazing.



You pick two colours of your choice, and everything else comes included.  It's an excellent kit, I've had a lot of fun playing with it - the lamp is a lot bigger than I expected it to be though, which was a surprise!  It's fairly simple to use, as long as you do not, under any circumstances, lose the instructions, which, me being a doofus did almost straight away.  I soon got the hang though, and I love the kit.  The lamp is even big enough to do your toes, which is cool.

For anyone even slightly interested in gel manicures, this is a great, fabulously priced place to start experimenting.  The polishes don't air-dry at all, so you can keep wiping it off if you accidentally apply it in a messy fashion ... like I  frequently do!

New post on The Parosmia Diaries...

Tuesday, 25 November 2014

You know when you start a new blog, and you get so excited about finally having written something for the new blog,  and then you eventually realise that you haven't actually explained what the new blog is about? 

That. 

Whoops.  Anyway, the latest instalment on The Parosmia Diaries explains what parosmia is (and a couple of other things as well), and explains why it exists.  Sort of.  You'll see.  Go read it.  Please!

Gillan Battery Pouch from wowthem.com

Monday, 24 November 2014


 The post deliveries for Get Lippie arrive at my office.  My colleagues are used to random stuff turning up but nothing, and I mean nothing, elicited so many excited calls of "this is the best thing you've ever got" around the office as this little purple makeup bag.

This is because the Gillan Battery Pouch has a little secret:


Can you tell what it is?  It's a micro-USB connector, and the Gillan Battery Pouch is actually a phone charger!


It is seriously handy.  It carries enough charge to fill up a completely dead iphone battery 1.5 times, which is more than enough to get you through the day, plus it carries lipsticks, face powders, everything you need to keep yourself presentable besides!  It's made of leather, and costs £50.  It's an ideal Christmas present for any beauty geeks you might know, and THIS beauty geek adores hers.  You can find them (in all different colours, and patterns) here: http://www.wowthem.com/collections/all and if Santa is reading this, I'd like a Mighty Purse in glossy black for Christmas please!

Things you need to know: You will need a USB to MicroUSB cable in your posession so that you can charge this bad boy, they don't come with the pouch, but you can pick them up quite cheaply from the likes of Amazon (and if you have a Kindle, you'll already have one, btw).  There are micro-USB to Lightening connectors available separately on the WowThem website, so you will be able to also use this to charge your iPhones, and iPods as well as any other MicroUSB-charged items, for example, I've successfully charged my iPhone, my Nokia Lumia 1040 and my Kindle with the Gillan.  I've noticed that it can take a while to charge the pouch from a computer, but it is much quicker from a charger plugged directly into the mains.  It gets a bit warm inside the pouch, so you might want to take any really expensive lipsticks out of the pouch before you charge your phone.

I take mine *everywhere*, there's nothing worse than running out of battery unexpectedly during the day, and this is fab for not being just one more thing that you have to carry around with you too.  I always have a makeup bag with me, so having one that is more useful than normal is really great.

A day in the life ...

... of a parosmic.  My latest post on The Parosmia Diaries, on triggers, good smells, bad smells, and how an elephant with gastroenteritis can affect my whole day, is now live.  Please pop on over and take a look, I'd appreciate it!
