rimmel pro matte finish

After much deliberation this is the dress I chose to wear to my friend's birthday party last night. At first I was slightly worried it looked too casual being a t-shirt dress but I think the print makes it stand out so dressed it up with a belt and some jewellery. I wore my trusty Aldo wedges that are still my favourite shoes that I've ever bought. They are gradually getting more and more battered but I still love them. I always seem to wear socks with my heels at the moment, I think this look is really suitable for Spring and also stops your shoes from rubbing!

This is the outcome of the Rimmel Pro Matte Finish I used on top of a shimmery gold nail varnish. You can see it has created a really smooth matte finish which is what I wanted. I might try this over some glitter next time to see what effect is created. I had all of my extensions removed on Wednesday so I've been wearing clip-ins which I really hate. I know you can't really tell the difference but I find them so uncomfortable on my scalp and they don't blend in as well with my natural hair. I'm off to the hair salon in a minute to have a new set of extensions put back in, that's how much I can't stand them! I'm going to be in the hair salon for around 4-5 hours which is annoying on such a lovely sunny day...oh well!
