OPI Get in the Espresso Lane (Touring America Collection)

O.P.I Get in the Espresso Lane is a gorgeous rich chocolate brown. This is such a lovely Autumn/Winter colour. 

This polish is so easy to apply and was opaque in 2 coats. As always I used my Zoya Anchor Base Coat and Seche Vite Top Coat!

OPI Jade Is The New Black & Fresh Frog of Bel Air (OPI Muppets Collection)

O.P.I Jade is the New Black is definitely in my top 5 nail polishes of all time. I adore this colour and never get bored of it. Its so unique and I always get compliments when I wear it.

Fresh Frog of Bel Air is from the new O.P.I Muppet's collection. I ordered this from eBay (where I tend to buy most of my nail polish as its easy to find the colours you want and its cheaper). I LOVE this glitter its so bright and unlike anything else I own. This is 2 coats of FFOBA under one coat of JITNB.

I'm definitely going to pick up some more glitters from the Muppet's collection. I have my eyes on Gone Gonzo, Divine Swine and of course Rainbow Connection!

Chanel Haul

There's quite a few things I splurged on this past month so I thought I'd split them up by brand. I just had a lovely few sunny days in Spain and of course I had to pick up some things in duty free! I was hoping to get a perfume but there was nothing that took my fancy so I splurged on some Chanel instead ;)

Pro Lumiere Foundation - I have Vita Lumiere and have to say it is my holy grail foundation I absolutely adore it. I also have Vita Lumiere Aqua and I know that gets rave reviews but personally I really don't like it and think its nothing in comparison to the original. Pro Lumiere is being discontinued but I wanted to try it before it disappears. As I've got a bit of a tan I haven't used this yet as its too light for me but I cant wait to try it. I would highly recommend Chanel foundations. They are pricey but well worth the money. 

Moisturising Bronzing Powder "62 Terre Epice" - I can't even think up an excuse to justify this! I really had no need for another bronzer I just wanted a Chanel compact for my bag! It really does feel luxurious though.

Rouge Coco Shine Lipstick "54 Boy" - I didn't pick this one up in duty free, I got this back at home after seeing Fleur de Force's blog post 
I have seen lots of hype about this lipstick on YouTube and beauty blogs and Fleur's post was the final nudge I needed. This is a gorgeous neutral pink colour. So easy to wear and there's something that makes me feel very grown up about whipping a Chanel lipstick out my bag!

Oh I love duty free
