Hoem nail art kits have become pretty big businesslately and Orly are entering the UK market with the Instant Artist Nail Art Collection.

Loving Christina Aguilera’s hair extensions

So many hair extensions look tacky and fake and I have to give Christina Aguilera the thumbs up for her hair look. Sure, the length may be a little phony (OK, a lot) but the hair looks in nice condition, is well cut so it doesn’t fall in an odd ‘one layer’ divide, and her real hair is expertly blended into the mermaid blonde locks. Kudos Christina- if only other celebs could take note of this!

The $850 Linea Pro Swarovski hair straightener

I’m a big fan of bling, so am rather attracted to the Linea Pro Swarovski Crystal C2 iron. Sure, it’s hideously expensive, but if you have a Paris Hilton budget why not?

It features over 2500 Swarovski crystals applied individually (OMG, the time) and has titanium, plates, a PTFC heater ( uses far-infrared heat which gives even heat and has an instant reheat feature, plus safely penetrates the hair and protects it whilst styling it) , a digital temperature control and torumaline ceramic plates.

Get it for $850 here (made to order). [via the Luxist]

Get the celebrity hairstyle from Annabelle’s Wigs

I’m a big fan of wigs as they’re a fun way to radically change your hair colour and style very quickly, without all the stress and faffing around of salons. Annabelle’s Wigs offers a HUGE selection of styles and colours with prices to suit every budget. I recently attended a press day and was impressed at the variety and styles the company offered. The hair is all synthetic yet feels very soft and they offer everything from celebrity inspired hair (loving the Katy Perry blue version) to 3/4 length pieces that add volume to your real hair.

Apparently the Kate Middleton hairpiece has been selling fantastically possible because of all the themed parties soon to take place? Prices range to about £30 which is amazing value for a full length wig! I have my eye on the Dita Von Teese version.

Get your wigs from Annabelle’s Wigs here.

Dita Wig, £20.49

GetLenses offer eye makeup remover: Smart cookies!

I’m a long term wearer of contact lenses, poor eyesight and vanity meaning I’ve worked my way through Acuvue, Focus and Specsavers own brand range. I tend to like buying my lenses online as you get a reduced rate, and have recently become a fan of GetLenses. Not only can you get lenses at a discount rate, but they now also sell eye makeup remover- a very smart idea!!

They’re offering a selection of eye makeup removers, and eye cream, both products I use regularly and would be willing to add to my cart when I’m checking out. I reckon Specsavers/Boots Opticians should take note of this, good on you Get Lenses! They also say they’ll soon be selling eyeliner and mascara…

Here are some GetLenses eyecare tips.

1. Know when to put your lenses in: With a strong prescription you’ll need to put your lenses in before applying your make up to see what you’re doing. But as a general rule, apply your overall make up first, put your lenses in, then apply mascara and eye liner

2. Stop the smudges with waterproof eye liner and mascara

3. Hypo-allergenic will always be kinder to your eyes. GetLenses.co.uk offers a range of products which are ultra-gentle, formulated uniquely with non-ionic tensio-active ingredients, with a pH identical to tears and suited to even the most sensitive eyes and particularly for contact lens wearers. Mascara and eye liners coming soon.
