NOTD and Review- NYC East Village with W7 Crackle

This wasn't the nails of the day that I thought I would be sharing today. I'd promised an orange and gold crackle but I had to blog about this combination because I am so impressed. NYC and W7 aren't exactly what you would describe as high end products. In fact, it would be much fairer to say they are amongst the cheapest and most rubbishy of products. However, I am prepared to eat some humble pie because this combination has lasted on my nails for an incredible 4 days without chipping or showing tip wear. This may not seem remarkable to some but my nail varnish is usually chipped, peeling and chewed off within 24 hours of application. Even brands like OPI are ruined within a couple of days.

Review and Swatches- Boots No7 Metallic Eye Pencils

I bought the No7 Metallic Eye Pencil Set in Smoky Jewels a few weeks ago from Boots in Merry Hill for the bargainous sum of £13.50. I've tried a couple of the No7 metallic pencils before and while I thought they were ok, I wasn't blown away. These have blown me away like a Kansas girl in a hurricane.

So why are they so good?
