Random Nail of the Day: Leighton Denny Nail Polish in Captivated

Leighton-Denny-Nail-Polish.jpg

This is my first dabble into Leighton Denny polish and I have to say, I quite like it. The polish gave a nice even coverage and a glossy finish: Captivated is a royal blue type shade, one I would wear for winter and I was impressed that it didn’t stain my nails! I hate nail staining! But is blue now an acceptable nail colour? Maybe to beauty types it is, but can one wear blue […]

5 Blue Nail Polishes: Barielle Shades in Electric Boogie

Barielle-Shades-Electric-Boogie-Blue.jpg

I’m going through my relatively small nail polish collection and photographing my favourite shades. This week is Blues in all Hues! Barielle I think, is quite a thick nail polish which I think requires a bit of skill to apply. I love how unusual some of their colours are though! Electric Boogie is a dark but bold blue with sparkles! So it’s sort of serious, but not serious. Love! What do you think?

5 Blue Nail Polishes: Nubar Navy Blue

Nubar-Navy-Blue-1.jpg

I’m going through my relatively small nail polish collection and photographing my favourite shades. This week is Blues in all Hues! I like Nubar nail polish – they don’t dry out my nails and the colour is even and pigmented. Having said that I haven’t tried much Nubar – I’d love to see if they have more fun, glittery polishes? Navy Blue reminds me of Twilight – I don’t know why. It’s deep, dark, no […]

5 Blue Nail Polishes: Skinfood Creamy Milk Polish in BL004

Skinfood-Nail-Polish-Blue-Creamy-Milky-BL004.jpg

I’m going through my relatively small nail polish collection and photographing my favourite shades. This week is Blues in all Hues! The Skinfood Creamy Milk nail polish is indeed creamy, a little thick to work with, but very pigmented and bold. Quite interesting colours too. This one in BL004 is ridiculously bold. It hurts my eyes a bit, but it’s a bit of fun for the summer methinks. I don’t know what it reminds me […]

5 Blue Nail Polishes: Etude House Petit Darling in Bright Blue

Etude-House-Nail-Polish-Blue-Petit-Darling-.jpg

I’m going through my relatively small nail polish collection and photographing my favourite shades. This week is Blues in all Hues! Etude House Petit Darling polishes are discontinued, largely. Don’t know why because they are lovely! Free from shimmer, they are highly pigmented and smooth to apply, they are also quite rich colours. This one is a blue – the number code has scratched off, but I love it – it reminds me of Wonderwoman. […]

Whenever I mention the Frontcover range on this blog, the ladeez love it!

Mermaid Dreams is one of Frontcover’s latest releases. Just on first sight, I knew it was my bag. All those blues and greens! This palette contains 20 shades of eyeshadow, all baked colours, a shadowline, which is a […]

Random Haul! YSL Ombres 5 Colour Harmony for Eyes Riviera Palette

YSL-Yves-Saint-Laurent-Ombres-5-Lumieres-Eyes.jpg

I’ve had my eye on these YSL OMBRES 5 LUMIÈRES 5 Colour Harmony for Eyes Palettes for ages and ages and ages. But at £39 its rather steep (I did buy one Limited Edition palette) and to be honest, I wasn’t impressed by any of them when I swatched. Anyway I spotted this on Cheap Smells for about £27 so I purchased it without going to swatch it first. Palette no. 5 is Riviera, a […]
