Pink Hello Kitty Nails!

Yes, really!

I brought some Hello Kitty nail stickers on eBay for 99p and decided to test them out with a handful of my pink nail varnishes.

Yes, I did go a bit crazy using shimmer, glitter and crackle polishes and MUA fur.

I do love how they came out, they made me feel like a big kid again!

Pink Fur Nails!

I called into Superdrug with my boyfriend last week and he spotted this MUA ‘nail fur’. It sounded pretty cool so I picked up the hot pink to test it out. Here are the results:

I only did the one furry nail on each hand to test it out and see how long it lasts for. I was surprised that it lasted for just over 3 days before slightly chipping/wearing away on the edge.

It was definitely easier to use than I expected. Just paint your nails and dip them into the fur until all of your nail is covered. I did 2 coats of the fur as I found one coat still had a lot of nail showing through. I was lucky as my Bourjois Paris nail varnish matched pretty much perfectly!

Valentines Day Pink Heart Cookies Tutorial

For Valentines Day I cooked my family and boyfriend pink heart shaped cookies. Very quick and easy to make and delicious!

Here is the recipe:

DSC07373

Again it is a recipe from my Moms old Mary Berry cake book. Best. Cake. Book. EVER. I did change the recipe slightly. I used pink buttons instead of chocolate chips and added pink food colouring to make the cookies pink.

This is what you will need:

Heres how they came out:

They were more like cakes than cookies but still delicious!

Firstly, you want to add in your ingredients to mixer (not the buttons/choc chips or food colouring yet)

DSC07379

While it is mixing you can preheat the oven and grease the tray with butter (to stop the cookies from sticking.

When the mixture is a dough form add in around a half a teaspoon of food colouring. Mix up. If not pink enough add more food colouring until satisfied with the colour.

Smash the buttons into pieces, I used a rolling pin, then add them into the dough.

DSC07389

Stir in the buttons evenly and spoon onto the tray.

DSC07390

Place in the oven for 15 minutes before checking on it. While cooking choose you cookie cutters.

When it is cooked it will be slightly golden and bouncy to touch.

Wait for it to cool completely before cutting out your shapes.
