OPI East Meets West Collection

Saw this on today (31st March) as a TSV and just had to buy it.  Colours are from the 'HONG KONG' collection and they look perfect for Summer.

The colours include-

* Red My Fortune Cookie

* Dim Sum Plum

Neither are exactly earth shattering new shades but I don't own anything similar so thought I would give them a whirl!

This set also includes  "Pearl of Wisdom", as name suggests it is a beautiful pearl colour....perfect for a fresh french manicure look.

Nail Envy is my new hope in a bottle, I have never been able to grow my nails as I like to bite them but decided I want nice feminine hands so the nails must grow. Nail Envy has fabulous reviews online so we will see, shall try and post some pictures of my finger nails now (embarassing!) and keep you guys updated with progress.

Extras are a corrector pen...invaluable for the likes of me that always paints over the edge.

Avoplex oil pen for on the go help with dry cuticles.

Finally Drip dry drops...I was having a love affair with seche vite until recently, I found I only got to use half the bottle and it then went too thick and gloopy to use, amazing product to start off with but a complete waste of money in the end.

Not a follower of Lauren Conrad but loving her look!

I can't say I know much* (*read anything) about Lauren Conrad but I do know a good lip colour when I see one!  Her hair looks very cute too...any idea on what the lip colour could be?  Looks perfect for Summer...if it ever comes!

I HEART the Lola Rose Jewellery Collection!

Lola Rose was created 10 years ago by Nicola Gewirtz, a bored P.A who wanted to create fun, beautiful and affordable pieces of jewellery using semi-precious gemstones.  And so in May 2000 the 'tumble bracelet' was created.  A simple design of semi-precious stones on a adjustable silk cord that provides a satisfying 'clacking' sound.

This was only to be  the beginning for Nicola, in a short amount of time she built-up a celebrity client base that read like the whose who of Saturday Night television.  Dannii Minogue, Kate Middleton and Halle Berry are just a few of her A-list fans.

There are bright, juicy coloured stones to suits those who want to make an impact, just as there are the more muted, everyday neutral shades that will long be wardrobe classics.  Large rings, pendants, earrings shaped as flowers, hearts and bows....the list goes on.

Prices start from around £18 for a friendship bracelet  and go up to around £ get a large amount of top quality semi-precious stone for this top end price.

Nicola sums her range up perfectly by saying "I want to create designs that make people feel wonderful, bringing colour, glamour and a smile with every purchase."  And a smile is a guarantee with this beautiful range!
