I love to paint my nails, its quite thearaputic. The only problem I have is that they do not last more than two days before they chip. So when I heard about gel nails at Ruby's corner (that were on offer) I had to get them. With gels your polish could last up to a month, a date with Prince Harry could not keep me away. I decided to treat myself and have my fingernails and toes done.
On arriving at Chez Titine the nail technician who was extremely friendly and made me feel as if I was catching up with an old friend sat me down. She then proceeded to buff my nails and file them to achieve the perfect shape. Buffing I am told is an important part as it helps the gel polish to grip to the nail.
The colour choice was limited but I have been told that more colours are on order. I picked black and red. After putting the gel polish on which was called Geleration, I had to place both my hands and toes under a UV lamp to allow them to dry. After this process, a coat of finish was added to my nails.
Within a few minutes my nails were dry. I have had nothing but compliments about how they look. I have had them on for a few weeks now and I'm secretly hoping that they will chip so I can have them re-done. I cannot wait to see what exciting new colours will be available.

Honestly. We do.
Available in all Boots stores, these light, fresh body sprays easily replace heavy perfume fragrances during the summer heat. I'm personally not a fan of overbearing scents during these months but I also feel incomplete without a pleasant whiff of something!
They come in a small plastic bottle with a spritzer spray nozzle, making a great travel companion with no breakages of beautiful bottles. My favourite fragrances include Vanilla, Mango and Papaya and I am currently making my way through the Apple and Lime which smells mouth-wateringly fruity and natural, perfect for this time of year.
It leaves the skin feeling hydrated and revitalised and keeps you uplifted throughout your day unlike the aerosol sprays which simply irritate the skin. It leaves no sticky marks unlike many body sprays I have tried in the past and did I mention the price? At an amazing £2 it is definitely affordable.
To complement the body spray, the shower gels are also a good buy. I was bought the wild strawberry body scrub and it smells so lush and as a scrub it works well. Jumping out of the shower I feel rejuvenated and my skin has become a lot smoother. However, like the spray, the smell is only truly noticeable for an hour, maybe two at most which is disappointing but it is very simply solved by casually spritzing yourself from time to time.
One hundred percent recommendable for all ages within the family.
