Barbie on a Budget: Cheap Cheats, UK Bargains and Treat of the Week!

Happy Thursday! If you're still on a budget, fancy a bargain or treat Carry on Reading...

Cheap Cheats
Oh hai! Getting your nails done at the nail bar too pricey? Primarni's fake one's don't last? It's ok I've got this... I have those horrible nails that grow about 3mm... they snap, snag, get that weird cut where it doesn't brake off but it bends if you push it. Yeah ughhh! Anyway so I discovered Kiss Nails, now I was dissapointed with their oval ones, but their Square Falsies are Perfect! 

It's £6.49 for a pack in Superdrug and they should last 4 days minimum once you've got the Knack of It and each pack does 5 Manicures. (Lasts longer/shorter depending on life style). 
The Trick is to put a Little Drop of Glue on the False Nail and run it around so it will go over your nail (not all the way to the tip) and then to put a Small Amount on Your Nail and spread it over... Blow on each gently to Make Taccy then HOLD DOWN! for about 12 seconds, with lots of pressure, make sure its not wonky as well.

Bargain of the week:
Maybelliene - 3 for 2 @ Superdrug (on selected items)
So not as cheap as Miss Sporty, but your still getting 3 bottles of varnish for less than one bottle of Essie... need I say more!
The only thing that seems to be excluded is some of the effects.
They have a great range of colours, perfect for next season with Bold Rainbow Colours and dark 'Bite Me' Colours too... is that normal? 'Bite me' colours? Anyway, get on this! £6

Treat of the week:
To keep your nails looking hot and on trend Invest in a Mattifying Top Coat! Now this is the
Essie - Matte about you, it's a really cool effect and you should be able to find it at Boots and Superdrug, but their websites aren't displaying the products (slightly irksome).

All different brands are bringing out their own matte-fying top coat so there should be one for what ever budget your on, but Essie is lovely, so if you're going to Treat Yourself go for a Premium Brand like this.

Hope you Enjoyed this post again!
Let me know if you have any questions and if there is anything you'd like to see featured in Budget- Style.

World Peace .\/..
