I have gotten back into painting my nails yay! They are quite a mess from work, so covering it up with colour makes me feel better.

This is Barry M Cyan Blue.. I wanted to paint my nails blue, but once i put this on i wasn't loving it, to me it looks better in the bottle. I don't hate it, but its not my favourite.

Alice in Wonderland Palette Review

Hey guys! Wow i feel like i have been posting a lot, but this i'm really excited about!

Its the new urban decay book of shadows, the Alice in Wonderland palette! ;D I have been wanting to get my hands on a book of shadows for a long time and i finally have, and even better this one has beautiful packaging yay!

Here are some pictures for you, even though I'm sure you have seen this already, a lot of people have been reviewing it. My images aren't great because of lighting but i didn't want to wait until tomorrow!

Here is the cover

And you can see the mirror inside is broken, I'm not bothered because i didn't buy it for the mirror and i won't use it, but i know some people would be.

The colours!

I am so happy with this palette! The colours aren't to crazy bright, like with my Urban Decay Deluxe Palette, although not all neutral, much more wearable. The quality is great as all of you who are familiar with Urban Decay products will know.

All of these colours are original UD colours, just renamed so if you already have another book of shadow or a lot of shadows from UD, this might not interest you too much.

The palette is limited edition and only avaliable from Debenhams. When i checked, it was sold out on the website but keep checking it might come back in stock! Or check your Debenhams store if you can.
People are selling them on eBay but don't get ripped off! This palette costs £28 new, but with some clever searching i found some discount for debenhams.com and got some money off.

I hope to post some looks with these colours soon! :)
