  1. Congratulations :-)

    I love reading NOTDS, as I am a nail polish addict and love getting inspiration for new colours.

    My fav lipstick is Mac Hue, is the perfect nude for me and my fav nail polish is Essie's Mint Candy Apple, I am obsessed with it.

  2. Congrats :)

    Id like to see more nail art, love trying things out for myself and its an excuse to buy more. My favourite type of posts is your purchases (specifically your finds like the palettes from etsy)

    Fav lippie: MAC lovelorn, Fav nail polish: OPI Teenage Dream (3 bottles crazy)


  3. Happy Blog-Birthday! A lovely competition too!

    Id like to see more collections type posts, I always find those really interesting! My fave posts are NOTD/nail art posts though, yours are always fab, mine never turn out quite so well - prime example being the mummy mani haha!

    My must have lippie is Revlon Colourburst Lipstick in Peach - I thought id give something else a mention other than my beloved MACs! And nail polish would be China Glaze Below Deck! (That was a hard choice!)

    Thankyouuu! Sorry for the huge comment! x

  4. Happy Blog Birthday :)

    I would love to see more nail art posts - particularly quirky designs which you are very talented at doing!

    My must-have lipstick is MAC Hue lipstick because it is my perfect nudey peachy pink (not too pale and not too bright)! And my favourite nail polish is probably Barry M Navy because I like the look of dark polishes but this one isn't too gothic! haha :)

    GFC: hebeflora. (i think!)

    Thank You! xxxx

  5. Congratulations on your blog being 2 years old! :-)

    I love seeing your reviews on UK beauty products(I feel like I can trust your opinion on them) and then purchase without worrying if its going to be pants and your NOTDs are always lovely.

    I'm more of a lipgloss gal and at the moment I'm sporting Bare Escentuals Natural Lip Gloss in Cupcake. Nail polish it has to be Orly Enchanted Forest.

    i really love the NOTD so more of them would be great!
    my favourite lipstick at the moment is fanfare by mac (although i'm not sure if that's just because it's new and i'm talking about it like it's my baby! haha) and i really like peach melba by barry m, it makes me look tanned and it's a really nice colour for summer.

  25. Happy 2nd blog-birthday! I wonder what it would be like if I managed to keep my blog going for that long. Sounds exciting. :)

    My favourite posts are your NOTDs and I'd love to see more of those and reviews too. :)

    Hmm, as cheap as it sounds, e.l.f mineral lipstick in ripe rose is my favourite. The shade is just perfect for me. As for nail polish I find it hard to pick a specific favourite colour. However, in the last month, I've been putting Rimmel's nail tip whitner on instead of a white nail polish. I prefer the thickness of it and it lasts longer. :p
