Last Friday after work, I traipsed over to Selfridges in Manchester (it was SOAKING WET) to try out the Ciate Caviar Manicure which so many people have been talking about! Ciate currently have a pop up shop at Selfridges Exchange Square 21-24th June and The Trafford Centre 25th – 01st July if you want to […]
Spotted! Were these super cute nail polishes on ASOS. I forget how much I paid for them, less that £10 I think for a set of 3. ASOS has some good deals for POP goodies, they do some value bundles. There are 3 pretty pastel but not boring shades in this set – Ultra Violet, […]
Remember when Barry M brought out the crackle nail polish and everyone went nuts? Geez, even Mr C amazed! I got bored of crackles pretty quickly then there was magnetic polish – once again a really really clever concept but one I have yet to master! Korean brands have been making crackle and magnetic polishes […]
I’ve been dying to try something from the JASON naturals range for a while. You may have heard of them; they have a huge range of skincare and haircare products in lots of different ‘flavours’ and the entire range is based on natural goodness: The J?SÖN® brand is devoted to using only ingredients from the […]
I have had my brushes with Shellac (which seemed to make a lot of nail technicians crazy because I just didn’t have a good experience) and after trying it 3 times and having it chip within 5 days I concluded that it just wasn’t for me. Nevertheless, my cravings for a long lasting polish didn’t […]
Gel Nails you can do at home is nothing new – anyone who spends far too much time on eBay knows that you can buy a UV lamp and gel polish for around £50. However – I’ve never been tempted by home gel nails that you need to file off when you’re done – seems […]
You know when Boots starts giving out the £5 off No. 7 vouchers, it’s a killer. The last few times I haven’t paid any attention to it, but because I was in need of a cheap and cheerful boost for Spring, I traded my vouchers in for four new nail polishes! I chose Cheeky Chops 240, […]
Korean brand, Tony Moly have a really big stable of nail polishes that tend to belong to a certain “family” of polishes (e. Trendy, or Neon or the amazing Galaxy Nail Polishes). However, I’ve banned myself from buying nail polishes of late because I have so many but almost inevitably, I have very little time […]
Today’s polish is blue. When the sun comes out I feel like these kinds of bright shades are more acceptable! Avon’s Cosmic Blue has some pearl shot through it. I quite like it, even if there aren’t lots of different tones going on.
Carrying on from the last nail polish post, I have another one of the new Avon Nail Polish colours! This one is called Starry Sky – a metallic pure clean silver! Something about silver polish just reminds me of Christmas!
Avon recently released 12 new shades of their Pro+ nail polish – because there are so many I am swatching them over the next few days! They say: Gives you the look of a professional manicure. Shine lasts up to 10 days* The advanced formula contains diamond dust and acrylic known for its strengthening, and […]
OPI have created a charity shade to support Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month (March) and with every purchase made in this month, Lena White will donate £1 to Ovacome. The shade is ‘Teal The Cows Come Home’: Ovarian cancer is very heard to spot because the symptoms can be so easily confused for something else. Remember […]
Since I swatched all of the previous Beetlejuice nail polishes from Models Own, I thought you might like to see three new polishes launching on the 19th March! Copper Pot, Tropical Sun and Indian Ocean (£5 each). Of all three I likeIndian Ocean the most! What do you think of these?
I don’t know what it is about doing my nails that I find so boring; I think it’s the issue of drying time and how it always, one way or another ends up slightly smudged, or with some cat hair on it, or with duvet marks embedded on the surface. Doing your nails properly takes […]
Despite the fact I barely wear nail polish (no patience) I can’t stop collecting pretty ones! I saw these Skinfood Fruit Drink polishes a while ago on eBay…they were a bargain price so I purchased 3 colours. They don’t smell like fruit or anything like that, they just have a fruity inspired colours. Here are […]
Whenever I see Mylenne Klass it brings back a terrifying memory of leaving my student flats many moons ago and being heckled by a group of lads who started singing “Pure & Simple” at me….Shudder. Borderline abuse that was. Being heckled aside, Myleene who does all sorts of things (presenter, recording artist) now has a […]
Whilst I was in Hungary, I picked up tons of make up from the ‘drugstores’ – I noticed the major brands there were the usual European ones we see over in the UK, but also a lot of German manufactured brands. I have lots to show you from my holiday hauls – bit by bit […]
Another Peripera nail polish! I am obsessed! The fact is I love a snotty green polish. Love it. This bright green-yellow-lime shade is just so garish that I love it. No ones bogey is that luminous but I still love it: The packaging is fine – the end of the handle is too long for […]
I do think Mary Quant is a super cute make up range – they’re great for eyeshadows, polishes and lipsticks. I bought one of their polishes when I was last at their store – just one because they’re £7 and quite small for the price.I got a snotty acid green which has glitter infused in […]
Avon Nailwear Pro does some pretty decent nail polishes – and this one, Violetta Sparkle has a pretty deep purple base with lots of gold micro sparkle on it. Something about gold and purple just reminds me of chocolate: The packaging is ok, not really up to much. This speedwear stuff I find does try […]
