False Nails

A while back on my blog you may have noticed I got myself some primark false nails. Since then I have tried a few and really found I enjoy wearing them. I love taking some time once a week to do my fake nails. It helps me feel like I've made an effort and I look a bit more put together! So today I just wanted to share some of the nails I have had the past month or so and share some nail tips! 

So some tips are, 

1) don't use super strong glue this tends to break your natural nails more. The best glue I have found is from primark and it costs about 60p! 

2) soak off your nails, don't rip them off. It's pretty self explanatory and you will keep your natural nails healthier.

3) file the edges of the fake nails so they are super smooth. It avoids catching your skin or clothes on them. 

4) carry glue with you, seriously nothing is worse then exposing a naked natural nail next to your beautiful false ones! 

5) try to nourish your natural nails when you can with oils or treatment top coats. Try to give your natural nails a break and treat them nicely! 

Do you wear fake nails? What ones are your favourites?

100 Days Of Makeup Day 1-7

So over on Instagram (you can find me by searching allthingskerri) I've started the 100 days of makeup challenge and I decided it could be good to do a weekly round up of the different looks I come up with here too. 

So let me start by saying I'm not the best at makeup! But I am good enough to feel happy with the outcome! I tend to keep thinks quite toned down as in I don't do the whole full coverage base, fully contoured wings on fleek look, mostly because for my skin type which is pretty dry it just would not work. I have been pretty obsessed with my makeup revolution fortune favours the brave palette so I have mostly been using that this week. Also this week I discovered my bathroom has the best lighting! 

So onto the makeup (these are all in day order) 

Hope you liked some of these! Let me know if you are doing the challenge too and I will follow you on Instagram!

Batiste Dry Shampoo Plus Heavenly Volume.

I am a huge batiste dry shampoo lover! I was over the moon when I found out they were vegan friendly and cruelty free! It meant I could keep one of my holy grail items in my switch over to cruelty fee makeup! 

I recently picked up the batiste plus heavenly volume because I have really thin fine hair and wanted to add a bit of oomph to my roots!

This as always does a really good job of soaking up all of those excess oils in my hair however it does leave a really strange texture to my hair. 

I like to spray my hair at night so when I wake up the spray has worked its magic but it's just not an option with this spray. It makes my hair matted and knotted together. I do not use this as a dry shampoo anymore but use this in place of a back combing powder. It gives that same sticky texture which means back combing oils sty in well. 

It's a shame that this isn't a good dry Shampoo for me because I love the type of this can and I love the scent. 

Which is your favourite batiste spray?
