Guest Contribution : First Impressions of Wet N Wild Nail Polish

For months I have been hearing about this beauty brand and that it was only available in certain Clicks stores. So when curious me got to try out a Red and a Glittery polishes I was rather happy.IMG-20150308-00011

I generally hate red on nails but decided I would use it paired with a glittery red on an accent finger. I totally love the brush , smooth strokes and no excessive polish dripping all over. I used a base coat and 2 coats of the polish. Extremely impressed as its lasted me 5 days before it started chipping and that to me was the sign to remove it. During the festive season I tried on the glittery on I used it as an overcoat of a beige/brown colour. I had to use several coats to get the colours of the glitter evenly over my nail. Once on it was rather pretty and I did get a few compliments. And the removing the glitter polish was a nightmare it took me ages, I scrapped and had to soak my nails. I wasn’t impressed with that and since then I have not used glitter polishes again.IMG-20150308-00012

I am keen to try out the other colours and products in the Wet n Wild range, I just wish more stores with stock them.

Guest Contribution : Wet ‘n Wild Mega Rocks Nail Glitter

If you love glitter on your nails, then you are going to love this product. I received the ‘At wild call’ colour to play with and had a lot of fun trying it out.Mega Rocks Nail Glitter 01 If you don’t know Wet ‘n Wild products then you should probably know that it is a very affordable American drugstore brand. And if you think that because it is affordable that it might lack in quality then you are seriously mistaken. I received a few of their goodies and are seriously falling in love with the brand. What makes this nail glitter seriously cool is the fact that the glitters are not round in shape, but they are actually hexagonal in shape, which makes for a very cool and different effect. It is a thick consistency that has two shades of glitter, one shade being bigger hex’s and the second shade a smaller hex, in a clear polish. In the one I tested the big glitters were purple/lavender and the small glitters were pink. I first used a very nude colour as a base and when it dried I added one coat of the glitter on top. Do not be alarmed about the thick consistency because it actually caught enough glitters for one nail. If you want to cover more of your nail with glitters then I would suggest you using more than one coat.Mega Rocks Nail Glitter Now the staying power of this product is amazing. I wore this nail polish for 5 days and still I had no chips! And because I wore the glitter coat on top, it actually protected my bottom nude coat. The picture with it on my nails was not taken on day one, but actually on day 4, just to illustrate how long it stays on.  We actually had done a bit of home renovations in the week I wore it and not even that could strip my  nails of it’s glitter. For me that is pretty impressive! Sometimes when we try and remove glitter from our nails, it becomes quite a time consuming exercise. Not in this case. Removal was a snap. I cannot wait to get my hands on more of these colours. You can buy Wet ‘n Wild products at selected Clicks stores and the Mega Rocks Range retails at about R59.95 each.

Beyonce Gets Her Kit Off And Sparkles in FLAUNT Magazine

Hi Poutlings

BEYONCE (2)Despite the fact I am not the biggest fan of Beyonce’s music, one cannot deny that she is exceptionally beautiful. Beyonce is on the cover of Flaunt Magazine, July 2013 with swoon worthy images shot by the talented Tony Duran.

BEYONCE (3)

Seems like Flaunt’s creative directors know that there is no need for wasting time on shopping and dressing if all you have to do is to get a couple of body paint bottles and a good brush or two add Beyonce’s figure in the mix and you have one other worldly images as a result.

BEYONCE (4)

The makeup is absolutely first class, and I am slightly jealous I couldn’t get my brushes all over Beyonce. That sounds dirty, but really, it is NOT supposed to.

BEYONCE (5)

well done Queen Bey & co!

Madame Zingara Miracle Tour

What did you do this weekend?

I had an absolute ball at the Theatre of Dreams.

The Theatre of Dreams

The Theatre of Dreams

some history:

Madame Zingara was founded in 2001 by Richard Griffin, it was a quirky 80-seater restaurant in the heart of Cape Town’s city centre. It was well known for its outlandish glitter-dusted service and Richard’s whimsical culinary creations.

Madame Zingara

After 5 successful years, disaster struck and the restaurant was burnt to the ground. The Zingara team didn’t let a fire stop them from shining and the Theatre of Dreams was born, a travelling dinner-cirque extravaganza which is housed in one of the last antique mirror tents in the world. The cast and crew have played to full houses in the major cities of South Africa and won many awards and titles along the way.

This year, Madame Zingara has returned to Cape Town will full force and is situated at the heart of the city, V&A Waterfront.

So, enough on the history lesson and let me tell you about my experience.

I had only ever heard about Madame Zingara from people in passing, and only ever taken away from those conversations that the show was “MINDBLOWING“, and “AMAZING“. When my friend asked me if I would be interested in going, I said yes. I did not know what it involved, but purely went by word of mouth…. by the way – SO GLAD I DID.

Madame Zingara

From the moment you walk outside of the Theatre of Dreams, you can sense in your bones that something amazing is going to happen. You don’t know what, but you can just feel it. All the guests that have been before are dressed up, wigs, feather boas, extravagant makeup and fabulous outfits. You do not have to dress up, you can dress down too, or you could even go as a clown… anything goes. In a way, its a great representation of Cape Town’s vibrance as a whole. I went with a group of friends, we were a table of 13. We kept on getting told by various waiters that we were one of the youngest tables there, and they encourage “misbehaving”. No one needs to tell me to misbehave twice – it is one of my many skills.

An absolute assault on your senses.

While waiting for the theatre to open you can get drinks, chat with the cast members, in character of course, and take pictures with the wonderful props they have outside. Giant lollipops, Flamingos, Hearts, anything you wouldn’t normally associate with a classy night out, is there, being damn classy. Seriously.

madame-zingara

I will not go into to much detail, however, the costumes and makeup alone make the show worthwhile, but if sparkles are not your thing then the show is fantastic, the local artists are wonderful and the international artists are mindblowing at what they do. You may shudder in fear for them every now and then being worried that something might happen because at times it seems like what they are doing is not possible with a human body… but clearly it is and you’ve just been doing it wrong in the past.

The staff were all spectacular, dressed in their own outfits and makeup that was seriously impressive…  every single Pout Perfection reader would be proud. The food was divine… Delicious four course meal was a perfect accompanant to the show. The service was seriously impressive! Fast, efficent and with a bit of humour on the side. (I utterly wish that the rest of Cape Town could take lessons on how to service clients from the Madame Zingara team).

Madame Zingara

The show at the V&A Waterfront opened on 17 January and runs nightly fro Tuesday to Sunday until the end of March. Ticket prices range from R385 to R475, dependant on where you sit. No online bookings are accepted. Visit http://theatreofdreams.madamezingara.com/ for more information.

There is a reason that it is always booked out so quickly. I hope to one day be able to go back and experience Madame Zingara. Thank you, to each and every person involved in getting this show together, it was truly an eye-opener to the amazing organisation we can put together when it is managed correctly and something that should inspire every South African production.
