I've been invited to a lot of parties recently and as you all know, I LOVE GLITTER!
What better way to show up to a party in style than in gorgeous glittery shoes?
I bought two pairs, a gold and a silver and I'm here to review the good and the bad to you!
Let's get the bad out of the way. I couldn't find any silver heels in my size that I liked enough to buy in any shop so I decided to search online. I stumbled across seller Koi Couture and found a beautiful pair that was perfect for me!
When they arrived they were the perfect fit, size and heel height. I was delighted.
They even came with some Gel foot pads for sensitive soles.
However, as I took a closer look I noticed the heel wasn't quite right. It looks poorly fitted together and most importantly, there was no glitter on it!
Where was this glitter? In the box! Most of the glitter had fallen off the heels and into the shoe box they arrived in. They also shower everywhere you walk with glitter which is a disaster, especially for me who hates mess!
I won't be recommending this company to anyone that's for sure!
On the other hand, let’s finish on a better note. I bought a gorgeous gold pair from Next a day later and I cannot complain about anything.
They're a brilliant fit and the peep toe is very flattering!
What about the glitter? None of it falls off or covers your house in a sparkly dust. It also shines red, green and blue in the light so they are suitable to wear with anything.
I adore these shoes and will be definitely be buying shoes from Next again!

This is a simple guide to achieving two fabulous looks this season, colour and glitter!
· After shaping, paint with a clear coat to stop the staining of the natural nails
· Paint each nail one at a time in a different colour, which ever shades and patterns suit your style!
· Everyone knows I love a bit of glitter, who doesn't? So once nails are dry, apply a sweep of glitter across the nails
· Finally, add another layer of clear on top to stop chipping and to ensure they look super shiny!
