Easter bunny nail art! | demiDOODLES

Hiiii guyssss    :)

I thought I'd do a little 'how to' nail art post today as Ive finally found some time to sit down, relax and do some pretty nail art for myself!

I love love love painting my nails and trying out new designs and patterns, and seeing as though Easter is literally just around the corner, what better than to paint some pretty little bunnies for my finger tips. Okay, so i wouldn't call this a tutorial as i haven't taken pictures of every little detail of the design but hopefully you'll get the gist of things!

(Click on the pictures to make them bigger!)

Step 1. Paint your nails with a pretty pastel colour, for this design i chose Essie- Neo Whimsical, 2 coats and leave to dry (I chose to do bunnies on each nails except the ring finger which i put glitter on.)

Step 2. Taking a white nail polish, create a half circle shape on the top of your nail (leave enough room for your bunny ears!!)

Step 3. Using a smaller brush or by flattening the white nail polish brush, make 2 smaller lines towards your cuticles to form the ears. Leave to dry before adding the next details.

Step 4. Once the nail is dry, use a pink colour to make a small like inside the ears and two small dots for the cheeks (i used the polish i used for the background- Essie: Neo Whimsical)

Step 5. Using a black polish and a dotting tool (or a toothpick), make two little dots closer together and above the cheeks, these give the bunny some eyes!

Step 6. Next, make a very small upside down 'T' to form the nose and mouth using the black varnish. Then, using the black again, make 2 or 3 lines on each side of your rabbits cheeks for cute little whiskers (you can create these lines using a toothpick and a dotting technique, making the dots overlap to make a smooth looking line).

Step 7. Finish with a coat of your favourite top coat and leave to dry.

And there you have your cute little bunny rabbits on your finger nails!

Will you be trying this out, or maybe your own design with an Easter theme?

MUA Lipstick | Review

Happy Monday everyone! If that's even possible..

Did anyone else get any results back last week, GCSE's or A levels? I got my A Level Psychology result back and was 1 mark off of a 'C'.. how gutting!:(

Anyyyyway, i thought I'd start the week off with a small review for you of MUA's Lipstick. In January i picked up one of their lipsticks in Shade 1, which is a deep, dark red.

When i was in the shop, i was drawn to the variety of lipstick shades that they have, and to be a bit different than my usual coral or pink shade i decided to go for a bold and fierce colour.. slight contrast to my comfort zone!
Recently I've been trying out with lots of new clothes and styles and I've been loving the edgy, rock hint in fashion and i thought this lipstick would compliment this style amazingly.

The packaging is great and includes a nifty little pot of extra product making it really compact and useful, and the best part was that it is only £1.

The product itself is amazing, its very highly pigmented and gives colour with one swipe over the lips! It feels really soft and not at all sticky, which is usually extremely common in cheaper brand cosmetics, which is why i love MUA; great quality, great price!

It smells nice too, not like the plasticy (not too good at describing smells as you can see!) smell that some lipsticks have. 

The only downside to this lipstick is that because it is such a strong colour, it has to be applied perfectly. If you do not apply it exactly to the line of your lips, the wonky lines show up so obviously. If you go over the lip line and try to rub it off, you'll have a struggle, it stains super quick and gets everywhere including face, hands and clothes!

Although it has its downfalls, all in all its an amazing product! You  could easily get past the issue by using a lip brush instead of applying it straight from the stick. 

Here is a picture of me wearing the lipstick, it just strikes your attention and i love it!

 (Please don't ask what I'm doing in this picture, i look like a dingbat i know!)

Have you tried any of the MUA lipsticks or other products from this brand?

Youtube video is up!

Hello there!

If you have been a reader of my blog for a while you will know this but if not.. I have been wanting to start youtubing for such a long time now, i recorded and edited my very first video a few months back 'July Favourites', but as you can see, its not really relevant for the new year but also the video camera was burnt in a fire accident and i couldnt get it to connect onto my laptop anyway (good riddance cringey shyness on camera haha!)

But i'm back! and although I've had to use my laptop camera, i have just made a video for you all called 'my daily makeup routine'! Its just a basic tutorial of how i do my makeup everyday, nothing more to it really.


I really hope you enjoy it and i could really use some feedback, the quality isn't too great and my editing skills are awful as you will see, but if you have any recommendations please let me know and also, if you happen to like it.. feel free to like and comment!

My youtube link is https://www.youtube.com/MissMcGlen , Thanks for any support!

Love you allllllll <3
