With the World Cup 2014 starting in just a few hours I thought I would talk about some Brazil Inspired Beauty Collections as well some products with Brazilian Ingredients.

Initially when I think what Brazil has given to the beauty world I think of Brazilian Bikini Wax (essential but ouccch!) and Brazilian Blow Dries. They have both gained cult status in the beauty world and I can’t imagine it without it.

However Brazil also gives us the Soya which is found in many of The Body Shops beauty products such as the industry favourite Body Butters, Satsuma Shower Gel, All-in-One BB Cream and the Vitamin E Sink in Moisture Mask.

In terms of Brazil inspired collections we naturally had a few, my favourite three were by OPI, Kiko and Clarins. I haven’t personally tried the OPI Brazil 2014 collection but you can find it here and they really do have some beautiful colours.

From Clarins I have already mentioned the Colour of Brazil Collection which includes on of Clarins must-have large bronzers perfect for taking the Brazilian glow but also an eyeshadow palette which is a stand out product. The palette inspired by the Brazilian Beaches comes with three core brown/neutral shades, a surprisingly wearable orange as well as a stunning blue which is perfect to add a pop of colour.

The Kiko Collection Life in Rio is also a great one to check out, it also has a huge bronzer with a little more shimmer which will really help highlight the face. I am also in love with the Cream Exotic Shine Lipsticks which come in the two most perfect summer colours and the Turquoise Tropical Waterproof Eyeliner would also look amazing in the Brazilian Heat.

And I couldn’t talk about Brazil without mentioning their amazing Havaiana’s and showing you my new bright orange pair, now all I need is a tan to go with them!

Are you excited for the start of the World Cup? Who will you be supporting?
I will be cheering on Portugal and I am rather excited!

As I am sure most of you have noticed the ASOS sale has started a little earlier than most other shops. As it isn’t often you see beauty items on sale (well in comparison to clothes) I thought I would edit the sale down to my top 9 picks.

1. Sophie Webster Nail Wraps £5.50 // Illamasqua Snow Glitter £11 // Lord & Berry Lip Colour £11 // OPI I snow you Love me £8.50 // Benefit  Hot to Trot £19.50// Pixi eyeshadow set £18 // Hersheson Ion Brush £17.50 // Makeup Bag £6.50 // OPI Minnie Style £8.50 

The sale isn’t actually a whole load cheaper, just a few pounds here and there but there are still some great products especially if you are after some great Nail polish colours. I actually have these Nail Rock Wraps and am saving them as they are my absolute favourite. I’ve actually had this Illamasqua Snow Glitter polish on my wishlist on my eye as it just looks like magical snow and unlike any other nail polish I own. The Lord & Berry Lip colour set seems like an absolute steal, four lip pencils for just £11!

As much as I love tacky nails they do get a little boring so I went for a classic red instead this Christmas eve. Vodka & Caviar is by far my favourite red, it isn’t too vampy or too bright instead it is a very shinny, sexy red with a great formula. I never thought I could like a red this much and it really is a colour that would suit pretty much everyone!

Sorry my hands are a little orange, I had just fake tanned.

What’s your favourite red and what colour are you wearing today?

 I would completely be lying if I said I don’t like Nicki Minaj, everytime Super Bass comes on I can not help but sing the whole of it and I often even consider a rewind. I had seen a few pictures of the new Nicki Minaj for OPI nails polishes earlier in the week but I thought it wasn’t available yet in the UK however whilst in Westfield I managed to spot the set and I had to pick it up!

 I am a huge fan of mini nail polishes, especially as I rarely use a nail polish more then 3 times, I love that you can try out lots of different colours for a much more affordable price. The Nicki Minaj set comes with four 3.75ml bottles in the colours Did It On ‘Em, Fly, Pink Friday and Metallic 4 Life which are all inspired by her music. There are another two shade Save Me & Super Bass however they didn’t come in set

 I think that as collection it is pretty unusual as I think the four colours are all completely different to each other, however it isn’t a bad thing as you have four totally different nail polishes which will allow you to create totally different looks!

 Metallic 4 Life

This is probably the one colour I was the least excited about and I am still not in love with it, it is a black polish with medium size silver glitter, it does need a few coats in order to look opaque but I think it’s the one nail polish you don’t need out of the four. You could achieve the same look with a black polish and a silver glitter polish.
Pink Friday
Originally this was the colour that caught my eye, although I don’t usually like pinks I am considering buying this as a full size bottle as its a really nice pink whith a creme finish. It reminds me of the OPI Mod About You however it is slightly darker and more pink. The downside is that it was the hardest colour to apply and needed a few coats. 
I love the look of this polish, it has a creme finish and is just a beautiful teal colour. It is one of those colour everyone needs, it looks beautiful in the summer but still works as a great pop of colour in the winter.
Did It On ‘Em
This shade remind me of some of the Shrek OPI colours but I do quite like it, it is a bright lime green which was really lovely to apply although I wouldn’t imagine this colour being for everyone 

Overall a great collection and I would recommend the OPI mini bottles if you already own a lot of nail polishes.

I bought them for £12.75 from Colourcopia

Also, please excuse my nails and cuticles- they have seen better days!

What do you think of Nicki Minaj and the OPI collection?

I have another OPI review today this time of Tickle My France-y which was originally from the La Collection de France I believe. 

Tickle my France-y is a light slightly lilac, nude with a creme finish. It does need a couple of coats although the formula is one of my favourite ever, it was a complete pleasure to apply! The colour of this polish does tend to vary depending on the light from a grey nude to a more pink beige.

This is probably the nicest nude I own and is very flattering!

I will be buying a bottle of this colour when I finish, it is a must have!

What is your favourite nude polish?
