NOTD: Missguided "Misslead"

As I felt rather uninspired lately in choosing polishes, I asked a colleague what colour of nail polish I should wear for Monday. "Yellow, so you come in all sunny!" was the answer. So I decided on this Missguided polish. I have worn this previously but I decided to put it on again with the L'Oreal Confetti top coat. Still not sure if I suit this colour but it's a cool colour :) The formula is OK for a yellow polish but I decided to put on the Rimmel whitening base coat and I think it maybe made it made it streak a little bit more than last time? I used 3 coats of "Misslead" and 1 coat of L'Oreal Confetti top coat. I then put on a generous coat of MegaShine to dry all the layers quickly. Looks cool :) You can see just the plain NOTD of this here.

I am currently road testing the new Clinique Moisture Surge CC Cream. I never got into the BB cream frenzy, so I guess I will have to catch up! I was colour matched to 'Light Medium', as I am quite tanned just now. It does still give you a just a hint of a pale cast (that greyish effect is the problem with most BB/CC creams I find) and I think this is because of the SPF30. Don't attempt to blend this into your skin with your fingers... It's very thick and dries quickly so you will end up with uneven coverage. I use Real Techniques Expert Face Brush and it goes on sooooo flawless :) Also seems to use less product using a brush. It wears well and my colleagues says I look healthy and not so tired so it's gotta be working... :P I think it looks great and evens out the redness in my skin. It is quite thick but washes off easily. I will post some swatches on the face tomorrow night, I can't seem to get good photos just now - it's either to dull or too bright outside!!

I'm off to rub some Deep Heat on my lower arm muscles after two early mornings of bouldering! I am getting fairly addicted to the indoor wall climbing but it's a killer for finger nails... I dread to think what they would look like if I didn't cut them short and wear nail polish while climbing :O

The bouldering room at RGU: Sport - so much fun! :)
