A Leopard Can Never Change its Spots...

So yesterday I went shopping and couldn't resist buying this dress from H&M. I'd told myself that I wasn't allowed to buy any more summery dresses as I have enough now to wear a different one every day of the week but at £7.99 my willpower was not strong enough! 

I really love the leopard print pattern and that's what sold it to me. I'm going to wear this outfit on Saturday for my best friend's 20th :) I'll probably do a proper outfit post on it then.

I also bought some Sally Hansen products as my nails are in need of some tender loving care. Seeing as I've painted my nails every week for the last 3 years, they are not in the best condition - I think this is also due to me using nail varnish remover that contains acetone! I decided to buy the advanced hard as nails strengthener as it is supposed to help improve weak and flaky nails. Hopefully it works well!

The second product I bought was, the insta-dri top coat as I always end up denting my freshly painted nails because I'm too impatient when it comes to waiting for them to fully dry. Having used it yesterday, I can safely say I love it. Having my nails dry so quickly is like a miracle haha. Finally, I decided to use my Boots points and get a Nailene French Tip pen as I love a French Manicure. I just think there's something so elegant about that particular manicure. I've never used a pen before and it was a bit strange but I found it pretty easy to use. I particularly like the extra precision the pen gives you.

Have any of you recently bought any new products that you love/now can't live without?
