Hi Everyone

Wow i haven’t blogged in what feels like years. My work situation as has changed slightly where i’m now able to do my overtime in the week instead of weekends, so now my weekends are completely free to work on my blog with writing and especially photos.


Today im sharing a simple look with just using 2 colours. You can use any light colour eg: a white, cream or in my case i used a champagne colour from Essie called ‘Imported Bubbly’ and the main attraction being Catrice’s Spectra Light Holographic Glow effect Nail Lacquer in the colour 01 Down The Milky Way.

Down The Milky Way is a fine Silvery Lilac glitter top coat that looks gorgeous over any light coloured nail polish. I haven’t tried it yet on a dark nail polish.08



Essie nail lacquers are available from Clicks, Dis-Chem and Foschini stores and online at
Catrice nail lacquers are available from Dis-Chem stores as well as online at


Have a great Monday

Welcome to Popcorn and Pearls…. My name is Melissa. I’m a 30-something year old Beauty and Lifestyle Blogger. I originally come from Durban, living in Cape Town with my 3 furbabies (cats), Peanut (my little panda) and my Twins, Lycan and Luna, for 15 years now and loving this City with all it has to offer. I have a love for everything Beautiful – from Makeup, to Fragrances, Clothing, Shoes and even Food. Popcorn and Pearls is my home away from home, the place i dive into to get away from the busy yet mundane life of the ebb and flow of work and sleep. I love sharing my finds with you all, whether it be a beautiful yet inexpensive dupe makeup item, a piece of jewelry, books or a little undiscovered restaurant. I love sharing my views on makeup, fragrance, body products and more with every one of you. I know you get great products in the USA or UK but i love finding dupe affordable products for all my readers in our very own South Africa When i am not working on my blog then i am a Full Time Travel agent. I also am addicted to TV series as well as reading. Thanks for reading my blog and being such great supporters. Please feel free to contact me anything on:
