Blogmas Day 1: Current Favourite Accent Nail: Essie Stroke of Brilliance & Rimmel Rhythm & Blues

My current favourite accent nail combo is Rimmel Salon Pro by Kate in Rhythm & Blues (Boots £4.49) and Essie's Winter Limited Edition in Stroke of Brilliance (Boots £7.99).

After missing out on Essie After School Boy Blazer, I became obsessed to find a good navy black colour to fill the hole. Then I saw Rimmel's Rhythm & Blues! The colour was everything that I hoped for: dark navy, almost black, but it still shows a hint of blue under different lights. Flat brush makes applying the polish really easy. It lasts for 4-5 days without chipping. And it's only £4.49!!

When I saw Essie's Stroke of Brilliance, the platinum blue chunky glitter look unusually beautiful in the bottle. The blue tint compliment so well with Rhythm & Blues. Stroke of Brilliance is a clear base glitter, so you need the patience to build up the layers to make your nail look like the intensity in the bottle. I did 4 coats for mine, but it is worth it, the pale blue glitter looks so pretty & different!!

Budget Buy: MUA nail polish in Natural Days

Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum

Lately I have been obsessed with the Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum . In the past I tried the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, it was alright but I didn’t find the result that amazing. So when I got a sample of for this Estee Lauder Enlighten Serum, I didn’t have high hopes … But how wrong I was! The sample bottle lasted me for two generous weeks and after that I rushed out to get the full size. Although it is called a serum, it is a light milky lotion texture, it is easily absorbed into skin and it feels moisturising. With the sample bottle, I used it every night after my cleansing routine. I can see visible results to my face after two weeks. My blemish marks are significantly lighter (my main concern) and the skin tone for the rest of my face is visibly more even.  Now I have the full size bottle (30ml, also available in 50ml size), I am going to follow the instructions to use it both day and night. Use it at night to reduce
