The Transfer Window

This month I thought we’d have a bit of fun with your look, try something a little different. Remember those old transfer tattoos from when you were five? Well transfers are back but these are the next generation high fashion versions for lips and nails…

Only wearing one colour on your lips? Pah! Now you can have rainbow, leopard print or sequined lips.

Yes, I realise it sounds a little weird (and you really can’t be a shrinking violet and get away with these), but, if you fancy being the talking point of the night, join the ranks of Lady Gaga, Jessie J and Beyonce with Violent Lips lip transfers.

I’ve tried them and while they are a bit fiddly to apply they do look quite cool and will last most of the night if you’re careful with them, but word to the wise – be careful who you kiss!

And at €15 a pack, they won’t break the bank either. Find them online at

Nails Minx nails are a great way of adding high fashion glamour to your look and are one of my

favourite nail looks of the moment (well if it’s good enough for Posh, Katie Perry and Rhianna, it’s good enough for me!).

Minx are foil-like pieces that are bonded onto your own nail using heat in the beauty salon. They cause no damage and the choices of designs and colours are so extensive you can find a style to match any outfit spots, stripes, tartan, metallics you name it, they have it.

Minx is available at Sam McCauley’s Beauty Salon on Barronstrand Street. Also getting in on the nail polish revolution is Nails Inc with their new Magnetic polishes.

The nail polish is magnetic, and once applied, you use the lid of the polish (which contains another magnet) swished over your freshly polished nails to create lines and swirls.

It’s available in three colours: Trafalgar Square (Silver); Houses of Parliament (purple) and Big Ben (gold). Try it – it’s super addictive.

New in Waterford - Hot Lava Shell Massage

I won’t lie to you, one of the best things I get to do is try out new treatments and products so I can tell you all about them. And boy did I like the Lava Shell Massage – exclusive in Waterford to Meridians Massage-a little piece of utopia on the Cork Road.


The shells used are sand polished Tiger Clam shells, which are glided up and down your mango and Teatree oil soaked skin to release stress and induce calmness. It’s great for anyone suffering with stress, bad circulation, stiffness, digestive problems, insomnia and many other common complaints and is a favourite of celebs and footballers JLS and Gok Wan.

like Rio Ferdinand,

Meridians Massage has €10 off this treatment until November 1st which means it costs just €55. And it comes highly recommended by me! Find out more at
