DIY SALT SPRAY

Aaah, Beach Hair. One of the most desired hairstyles of all time. Faking those salt speckled hair do’s are much harder than they look. Today I’m sharing with your my DIY Salt Spray recipe. Some salt sprays like the Bumble and Bumble Salt Spray are awesome but are pretty pricey. This one can be made with a few items lying around your house and a spray bottle which you can purchase from pretty much any beauty supply store or even your local Boots. All you need to do is add a few heaped tablespoons of sea salt to a spray bottle of water and shake. My personal secret DIY Beach spray addition is to add a little hair gel. The hair gel gives the mixture a little extra texture and hold when styling and will enhance the mixture.Then all you need to do is spray a liberal amount into wet or damp hair and scrunch or finger comb to help encourage movement. Leave the hair to dry naturally and fingers crossed you’ll have the beachy hair of dreams. If your hair doesn’t have a natural wave then pull out a wide barrelled curling tong and curl in different directions to cheat the look a bit!

Nail Polishes that smell good

Wow talk about a eloquent name for a blog post! Two 2014 additions to the Models Own Fruit Pastels range are Models Own Coconut Cream & Models Own Peach Melba. A duo of on trend shades in suitably summery scents. I’ll admit I didn’t like the Fruit Pastel Collection - I found most of the scents really synthetic, overbearing and just… gross. However I admit I really like the Coconut Cream polish. It doesn’t smell too synthetic and quite a light coconut scent rather than a overbearing one. The tops of the polishes have a “try before you buy” scratch and sniff patch which I think is a nice touch, even though I dont think the polish smells as nice as the scratch n' sniff. Dry time is average and both polishes need two coats to give opacity. The scent is subtle and unobtrusive, you can smell it there but not too much.

Although Im not 100% sold on the idea of scented polishes - Not a fan of gimmicks like this! But they are pretty nice shades and the scents are a nice addition. If you want your talons to smell good then like all Models Own Nail polishes these retail for £5 each. Exclusive to the Models Own Bottle Shops and online.
