NOTD: Natural collection - Burgundy

Ignore the horrible state of my nails at the moment, I recently had a gel manicure done and ever since having it done and then removing it, my nails and cuticles have been in pretty bad condition. Hence why this definitely isn't the prettiest NODT post in the world! I still wanted to share this colour with you though because of how pretty I think it is. For someone reason in the picture Burgundy looks almost metallic which it isn't, instead it has a duochrome finish of a deep red and a gold/bronze colour. 

I'm a fan of the Natural Collection polishes, I think they have some really pretty and interesting colours and for £1.79 you really can't go wrong!
Do you have any favourites?

February Favourites

As you can see I don't have many favourites this month but I still wanted to share these few with you that I have been really enjoying

Revlon Colourstay foundation - I finally got around to trying this, I was previously using Chanel's Vitalumiere Aqua foundation (review here) but wanted to try something with a little more coverage as that's my only fault with the Vitalumiere Aqua and so decided to try Colourstay. So far I really like it and have been using it with the Real Techniques stippling brush.. I just wish it had a pump!

MOR Lychee Flower hand cream - I had never heard of this brand before and as you can see this is just a sample I have of their hand cream but I've managed to get around 11 uses out of one of the two samples I have and I absolutely love it. It smells (to me) like cocoa butter and after doing a little research I found that this costs $20 a tube which is pretty steep but I like it so much I'd be tempted!

L'Oreal shine stay - I love everything about this! Mine is in 'On and on rose' which is a pretty subtle pink shade but gives just a hint of colour which I love. I really want to pick up one (or two.. or three..) more of these.

Physicians Formula conceal RX - I've yet to find a concealer I love and although I don't use this under my eyes I like using it to cover up blemishes. You need the teeniest amount so one tube of this stuff will last forever! I got mine here.
