So you want to do a gradient or water marble nails but can't be bothered with the amount of clean up? Well here is a very easy way to over come the problem.

Get some PVA Glue (wood glue, white glue, school glue, Elmer's glue) in a cleaned out polish bottle and paint it around the cuticles:

Wait for it to dry and go clear like this:

And then go on to do the messy nail art you wanted to do:

Once done simply peel off the glue:

Then if you need to you can go ahead and do a simple clean up around the cuticle, you can see the amount of clean up you will have avoided by the mess on the glue which you have peeled off.

Review: Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm - Sultry 225

Review-swatch-Revlon-Colorburst-Matte-Balm-Sultry-225

"This innovative Chubby lip pencil takes your look from day to night with this velvety matte finish, infused with Balm like moisture. Velvety Matte finish. Triple complex of Shea, Mango and Coconut Butter. Retractable chubby crayon, no sharpener required" - Boots

There is a mint smell to this which I like but it is something to be aware of in case you don't like that.

Also it twists up so you don't need to find a large sharpener.

The matte balm isn't like a traditional matte, it doesn't dry your lips but it does last for a long while. I would describe the finish as semi matte rather than a full on matte.

Review-swatch-Revlon-Colorburst-Matte-Balm-Sultry-225

I really like this lip product, it lasts a long time on the lips, doesn't wear bizarrely. It isn't drying the way a traditional matte is, Feels moisturising, sounds like a contradiction being a matte but moisturising product. This colour is a pinky nude colour, lighter and more pink than the packaging and the bullet suggests.
