Happy New Year



I just wanted to say Happy New Year to all my readers.  This has certainly been a great year for me.  I started blogging and it’s seriously changed my life.  I now have a hobby and an outlet for being creative, which has made me such a happier person.

I’ve met some amazing people through my blog, and have been given some lovely opportunities, so I like to express how grateful I am.

Have a fun New Year everyone, and I look forward to continuing my blog into 2010.


Lots of love,

Miss Dollygal


Christmas OOTD

I thought I’d post the outfit I wore on Christmas day this year.


Dress- £2 from Primark.  I got this on sale in Summer 08 and have never worn it.  The colour really compliments my new hair colour


Shoes-£25 from New Look.  I got these Spring 08 and again, had never worn them.  I got them for Las Vegas- the straps are pure gold glitter and the heel is a gold cone shape.  They are so uncomfortable, which is why I’ve never worn them!

close up

This is the only proper pic I have of my face.  I was wearing GA lashes in Cheryl (you can see a close up here) and just some gold shadow.  We weren’t allowed presents until we got dressed so I didn’t want to waste much time applying lots of make up.

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas

I realise I've been doing a lot of these lately but they're currently my fav type of post and the only make up I'm allowing myself to buy at the moment.

This was a Christmas present and the first time I have tried a No7 polish.

This is No7 stay perfect polish in Betty Blues. In the bottle it's dark blue with blue glitter. In real life it's like liquid PVC. It looks black in this pic but it is actually a very dark blue. It's just so gorge and shiny, I haven't used any top coat.

Formula was lovely, I used 2 coats but 1 would have been enough. It didn't take too long to dry either.

Gets big love from me. I'll be trying more in the future.

Holiday nails

It's the big one, nails for christmas day! I wanted to go all out this year so I've gone for falses nails too. So here we have it- my Christmas candy cane nails

I've used short square nails by kiss, opi alpine snow in matte and a red sparkle nail art polish by la colours. It's so amazingly tacky. I painted each nail in White and then freehand drew 3 diagonal lines across each nail in red.

What do you think?

Holiday nails

Here's the second look in my holiday nail series. This is blue glitter by Barry M. Again, this is just 2 coats.

I bought some nail gems from poundland so I popped a few stars on the tips.
Here's a close up

Let them eat cake

Yum. Although I didn't need another lip balm, especially after buying that one in NY, I've been thinking about Lush's let them eat cake since I smelt in Oct.

It smells like christmassy butter scotch. It's so delicious smelling, I cannot stop having a sniff!

In terms of consistancy, it's a little different to the other Lush lipbalms I have tried.

This one is very creamy rather than being solid and you just need a tiny amount. It feels ever so slightly gritty when you first apply, which exfoliates your lips and then dissolves into a creamy, glossy balm.
As far as I know, this is LE for Christmas so pick it up soon if you fancy trying it.

Holiday nails

I've had some ideas for holiday nails so I thought I'd do a series.
This is red glitter by Barry M

This polish is insane. It's so glittery. I applied just two coats and it's completely opaque. The fomula was lovely and dried really quickly. Totally worth the pain it will be to remove.

Here's a better close up of the colour

I have a glitter green, snowflake and candy cane nails coming up soon

This is Deceit by George at Asda. It's a slightly shimmering, gun metal grey but has a blue undertone which I really don't like :( However the formula is great. I love quick drying polishes and this was dry in minutes. At £1.50 each, I shall be buying a tonne more!
Any colours to recommend?

Yesterday I moaned about MAC Blackground paint pot looking rubbish on me, so I decided to have a look for some inspiration.  With help from Bickyyy and Nikki, I managed to make Blackground work for me today.

Ta Daaaaaaaaaaaaah


After applying Blackground with my finger, I blended it out using a really stiff crease/pencil brush (mine was from Charles Fox) and then layered MAC All that Glitters, Woodwinked and Amber Lights over Blackground which just made it more dramatic.  I also used Sleek blush in Flamingo and MAC Peaches blush to give me really dramatic, 80’s cheeks.

Here’s a close of the eye (sorry it’s poor, my camera battery ran out)

It was much more like the full face photo in real life.

I also did a massive quiff today and pinned the rest back into a mohican.  It’s my fav hairstyle.


It’s not very backcombed as I’m just going to bed but you get the general idea.

So now- Blackground I’m loving you.
