Review | Born Pretty Store Chameleon Glitter

It's been a long time since I last showed my nails on this space but that's because I had some issues with broken nails and I really couldn't wait for them to grow back so that I can try this duochromatic fine glitter from Born Pretty Store.        

The glitter comes in a small pot (be careful each time you open it as you are bound to make a mess) and can be used both on nails and for make up as well as for crafts and decorative purposes. I decided to use it on my nails to spice up a nude nail polish and boy was I impressed with how it turned out!

All I did was apply the nail polish as usual and allowed the second coat to go tacky before I dipped the opposite index finger into the pot and gently dabbed the powder onto my nails. I thin sealed everything with a top coat to make it last longer. I wore this manicure for my first fashion week show as I think it looks very fashion forward!

Born Pretty Store offer a wide range of colours to choose from and each pot retails for $3.99. Remember you can knock 10% off the price with my code EBABK31. I think these would also look great mixed with some clear lip gloss to create stunning new lip colours as well as other nail art looks :)

What I Wore to MFWA 2016 Day 7

For the last day of MFWA, I went for a somewhat colourful outfit. I paired this flowery Zara top with this green leather skirt and beige sleeveless jacket which is really what the whole outfit was built around. I really like how it turned out even though the wind kept blowing at it and we couldn't get a perfect picture. I would like to thank photographer Neil Psaila for the outfit shots :)

MFWA 2016 | Nilara presents Insomnia

The Mercedes-Benz Malta Fashion Week ctwalk shows came to an end with the Nilara brand collection named Insomnia. From the capable hands of designer Nilay Camilleri Topal, I didn't expect anything short of spectacular and I must say I was really impressed with the very edgy collection she designed this year! Leather in different colours paired with lace detailing is what made this collection a truly daring one for the woman that wants to stand out.

The collections aims to bring forward a woman's sensuality and inner strength through challenging the traditional form of the evening gown. Insomnia really does represent what a woman would wear in her wildest dreams! Well done Nilay!

MFWA 2016 | Milica Trickovic presents Hunter

Serbian fashion designer Milica Trickovic showcased her Hunter collection last Friday. The collection revolves around the hunting instinct and hunger of a woman for eternal glamour. Every number in this collection accentuates the female form while still maintaining a high level of elegance.  I think this was probably my favourite show from the night as the absolute majority of the clothes are right up my alley. Here are my favourite pieces from this collection:

MFWA 2016 | Gagliardi

The Mercedes-Benz Malta Fashion Week came to an end yesterday with the Chamilia Malta Fashion Awards - congrats to all winners! But I still have to share with you the splendid collections from Gagliardi, Milica Trickovic and Nilara which were paraded on the catwalks last Friday so here goes the first post after a weekend of catching up with my better half.

As the title of this post says, I am going to be sharing with you some pieces from Gagliardi's latest collection which is inspired by sailing and baroque Malta. Gagliardi, a brand nowadays synonymous with the timeless appeal of Savile Row with a hint of Maltese flair never fails to impress me. Exceptional Italian tailoring are palpable all throughout Gagliardi's garments and I can attest to that as it is not my first time shopping the brand for myself and my better half who claims their shirts are probably the best he has ever worn.

I really had a tough time deciding which looks to include in this post (and yes the gorgeous models made it even more difficult). From their perfectly tailored suits and evening wear to the more casual looks, there really is something for every Gagliardi man.
