Black Cherry & Olive Gold

I dyed my hair. 'Black Cherry', using L'Oreal's Casting Creme Gloss hair dye. It turned out way darker than I had hoped! I was going for a lighter reddish brown, but this is pretty much straight-up black with a cherry tint! Red fades really quickly with washing though, so hopefully in a couple weeks it'll lighten up to my desired shade :)

You can watch me ramble on about the my new hair development below lol:

In other news, this nail polish is stunning:

It's a metallic olive green base with tons and tons of gold shimmer!! It's way more sparkly in person, trust me :) And here's the nail polish itself...

It's by the brand 'La Jour', which I presume is a French brand (it does say Made in France at the back). I found this at Sasa (Asian beauty store). The best thing about the formula of this nail polish is how THICK it is (therefore one coat is all you need!!), while being super fast-drying! I was literally able to apply my top coat straight after applying one coat of this polish. Oh, and how could I forgot the unbeatable price.. pretty sure it was only HK$15 or so! (a bit over £1).

Sasa carries a lot of niche brands (as well as big brands) that are not readily available elsewhere in Hong Kong. If you're interested in Asian beauty products, from skincare to make-up to body care products, Sasa is a safe bet. They also have a website from which you can order things online, and they do international delivery :) Here's the link if you're interested:
