As I sit on the sofa and make my way through a packet of Cadbury Chocolate Fingers (undoubtably the best biscuits ever) I have been reflecting on this year; graduating from university, landing myself a job and the growth of my little blog. 2014 although not as structured as I may have liked in terms of posting, has been a good year for British Beauty Addict. I have carried something on, which I thought I wouldn’t quite manage and have throughly enjoyed it. So today I thought I would share my top 5 blog posts (so the stats say) of 2014...
There has been a sparkly, glitter explosion all over my nails thanks to Essie’s 'A Stroke Of Brilliance’ nail polish. It looks super pretty in the bottle and doesn’t disappoint when applied to my nails. The polish is one of the 5 polishes from the Luxe Nail Polish Collection and is intended to be used as a top coat. However with 3-4 layers, this polish becomes opaque and looks pretty darn lovely. The polish has blue/silver (periwinkle to be precise) hexagon shaped glitter, with a clear base. The formula is great and far better in my opinion than Essie's regular polish. It is slightly thicker and lasts for days, without a chip in sight, however it takes a little longer to dry. It can be worn as a top coat, or can be layered and worn alone, or if you want to get a little fancy, you can also create a gradient effect.
If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you’ll know I have a thing for eyeshadow. Which is a little humorous as 4 years a go I didn’t even own any eyeshadow! So, after having received the LORAC Pro Palette at the beginning of this year and fell head over heels with the mix of mattes and shimmers I couldn’t wait when I heard LORAC would be releasing a palette twice the size, in their Holiday Collection. I was very lucky to get my hands on the LORAC Mega Pro Palette thanks to Jo a fellow beauty blogger from Little Pop Of Coral - thank you Jo!
