I have included some collages in this post of some pictures I took last weekend at Selfridges in Oxford Street. The front two windows include the original costumes from the film, with props, and to celebrate the release of the film Selfridges has also included a collection of shoes by Nicholas Kirkwood inspired by the film.

I was given this delightful top coat by QVC to try out and review, and boy was I excited when I got it! I have heard others swear by it and I can't understand why I didn't get hold of it before now. I want you to look at the three pictures below, now I must admit, there is one missing, I should have included a before shot pre-Seche Vite.
The design above is one of the last nail art designs and I thought it was a perfect opportunity to try out the staying power of the top coat. Before applying I fell asleep and ended up with duvet nails. I should have taken a picture to show you, but there were ridges and indenting in the pattern. After a coat of Seche Vite the unevenness was smoothed out - I was really impressed. By day 9 I saw the first noticeable chips, but even then it was just around the tips, and didn't peel off as usual. And by Day 12 it was more noticeable again, but still had good staying power compared to my usual top coat.
I have used it since, and still love it as it smooths out the polish, especially any bumps from paint or multiple polishes when doing nail art, and it makes my nails look super glossy.
Seche Vite top coat is currently available - two for £15.50 from QVC.

RapidShield eyelash conditioner, from the makers of RapidLash, I was intrigued. I had heard so many good things about RapidLash, so was certain their new product would be just as good.
The conditioner comes with a brush, much like a mascara brush, and the product is a clear gel that you apply by brushing through your top and bottom lashes morning and night. It aims to improve the overall appearance of your lashes, but can act as a primer before you put your mascara on. I have just read you can apply it on top of mascara to perk them up too and add some shine, which is always welcome.
After using RapidShield for a week I started seeing results and after about a month I have noticed less fallout than before. Considering they were quite sparse before they look more fuller and defined now. RapidShield won't stimulate growth, but works with the lashes already there, but I did feel my lashes were more noticeable than before I started using this. And they feel softer and look more shiny. I haven't been wearing mascara as much during the day and reserving it more for going out as I wanted to see the effects of the conditioner. And my sister (who has amazingly long eyelashes, that I am sooo jealous of!) even asked what I had been doing to my eyelashes, so I think it is a visible difference, as well as the physical softness.
Have you tried RapidShield? What do you use to condition your lashes?
