Since Summer is coming to a close and university much sooner than I would like it to, I thought I should do an intricate nail design before I don't have time to anymore. I'm currently obsessed with Adventure Time so I looked up some tutorials and tried out these nails myself. I used acrylic paint since it isn't as runny as nail varnish and I have a wider variety of colours, and you can easily mix them too. My left hand turned out a lot better than my right, but I'm still pretty proud of my LSP! The guy with glasses is meant to be Simon by the way, and if you don't know who he is then don't look him up because that would be a huge spoiler.

Another BB cream review! I bought this BB cream from eBay and have been using it for over a month now. It's pretty awesome so I thought another review was due.
The facts: SPF 42 PA+++, water-based, whitening, anti-wrinkle, 20ml
The packaging: It's not anything special although I do love the colour of it. You squeeze the product out through the nozzle which I prefer so much more than a pump. Pumps always dispense too much.
The shade: One of the most awesome things about this BB cream is that it comes in five shades! I have it in the lightest shade #13 called Milky Beige. I think the original shades were #21 and #23, but they expanded to include #13, #27 and #31. If you're super pale then #13 will work for you!
The road test: It's not too thick so after a while you don't feel like you're wearing any makeup at all. It's also very natural looking so you don't look like you have anything on. I have noticed it does wear off a bit throughout the day though.
Overall: If you're looking for a product with light coverage with good sun protection then I would definitely recommend this. I also love how it matches my pale skin, no need to wait for it to oxidize or anything.
