Yes I am slow. The RMK Power of Love collection launched early Autumn, and here we are, approaching December and I am finally getting my post up! But hey! Better late than never, plus, many of these products are still available on counter and from Selfridges too! So here we go. I have been using a lot of RMK make up recently – I think because I have been so stuck for time I am returning […]
Ciate Mosaic Paint Pots are another in Ciate’s never ending creative nail polish releases. The Mosaic collection is a set of 5 polishes (available individually or as a set), combining inspiration from Park Guell in Barcelona (I’ve been there!) and New York’s Subway Art (I haven’t been there). Think tiles, think beautiful tiles. From left to right: PP204 – Check Mate PP205 – Night on the Tiles PP207 – Fair and Square PP208 – Mural […]
Everyone made a big fuss when Bourjois released a ‘1 second nail polish remover’ in a pot, and whilst I was interested (I absolutely despite taking nail polish off and it’s one of the reasons I don’t constantly wear it) I wasn’t completely tempted as £6 is fairly steep for a sponge in a pot. Anyway, I spotted it in the ASOS beauty flash sale (30% off) so bought one to try. My version is […]
It’s random nail swatch day, and today they come courtesy of Nails Inc. There are so many nail polish options around these days, special effects polishes etc. I just can’t keep up. If I can actually find the time to paint my nails (and it doesn’t get smudged instantly) then I like to have something bright and perky – cheerful isn’t it?! Here are three picks from Nails Inc – Nail Jewellery in Sapphire […]
I have been trying to downsize my cosmetic collection AGAIN, and I’ve been coming across tons of make up I purchased but haven’t used yet. These cute nail polishes – ‘speckled egg’ styles ones from Korean brand, Tony Moly were in one of my ‘to review’ boxes. There are 5 colours – the full range I believe, in five different hues. They are called Nail Shuffle – Tony Moly has a vast collection of nail […]
Lola is a new British designed make up collection (made in Italy) that launched in September 2013 and is sold at M&S (who have a pretty interesting beauty haul these days!). The range is fairly large with 307 products and seasonal launches on the way – there’s certainly a lot of colours to play with! I have a selection her which I have been trying! LOLA make up comes in simple classic black packaging. Whilst […]
More and more beauty companies are releasing Christmas themed things…and if you love the festive season, then it’s a real treat! I did squeal when I saw these Ciate tree trinkets. In a cute festive box comes 6 clear baubles, each with a mini Ciate glitter polish inside. These come with the string attached, ready for hanging and also 6 gift tags so you can split them up for gifting…amazing idea! You could hang them […]
My dream is that one day there will be a super machine that you can use to paint your nails by just sticking your hand in it and POOF, your nails are done and impenetrable. But until then…I will have to live with smudgy nails with duvet marks on them. Although…Colour and Go from Leighton Denny is a clever handy sized nail polish I can get used to. These clever thing has a 2 in […]
When I think of Crabtree and Evelyn, my first thought is not nail polish…and colourful nail polish at that! And yet, this is what the brand has decided to release; a range of none toxic nail lacquers in 21 colours, from neutrals to brights to darks. I don’t know why but I felt that the range looked promising; and it is indeed a very lovely range of polishes. The Crabtree and Evelyn nail polishes have […]
So I was in Boots the other day, and there’s this thing called ‘The-Vortex-of-Boots’ which is where you go in for some toothpaste and end up leaving with a massive basket full of crap that you’ve decided is vital ‘Because it’s from Boots’, and spending £100 on nothing discernible – well I was in the vortex. I cannot pass through Boots without picking up interdental sticks and snacks for Baby H these days, and […]
I hope you are ready for some super pretty premium nail polish goodness from Burberry! The Burberry Nail Polish Iconic Colour Collection is launching on the 2nd of October 2013 and includes 17 shades, inspired by a classic Buberry colours (deep reds, nude, that trench beige etc) and also includes a base and top coat in one (just up my lazy girl street!). The nail polish has a high gloss finish and 2 coats […]
Hi Ladies, I hope you are all well. I am still crazy busy here, just day to day my hours fly by quickly and I can’t always remember everything I’ve done! all I know is I seem to have little time to do leisurely things these days! Anyway I figured it was time I did a review. I’ve had these Little BU nail polishes for ages – I found them when moving house a few […]
I have a huge soft spot for Top Shop nail polishes – for the price, I think the range is good and it applies nicely too. I picked up two colours recently in lieu of one Chanel polish! I think I was trying to replicate Chanel’s Particuliere and Peridot. I kinda failed, but still, it was fun trying!
Hello Ladies! Now, if you are playing the Ciate blogger Treasure Hunt then you will know what you are looking for, if you’re not then let me explain… Ciate are releasing a new range of very bright and fun range of polishes for the summer called ‘Suncatcher’. There is an ‘afterglow topcoat’ as part of the collection, which charges in the sun in the day and then glows in the dark! Ciate are offering […]
Pop on your sunglasses yo, because just when I think Etude House will run out of ideas for new collections, they don’t. Who thinks of these new ideas? I need a job on that panel. Anyway, Etude House’s summer (!!! WHAT SUMMER) offering is the Pop Collection and it’s certainly bright and fun. For the purposes of RESEARCH only I feel it is my duty to get a few things because although these products look […]
Etude House have been going crazy for glittery nail polishes recently, especially the chunky top coat type! I can’t help but being drawn to them even though I am usually too lazy to even use varnish most of the time! The Pink Prism range is a collection of affordable pink colours and 3 top coats which I purchased. These varnishes are quite dinky sized: Here is the full range of 6 colours;
When some of you young ‘uns see Mariah Carey, you probably see this middle aged lady who argues with Nicki Minaj and likes very short tight dresses and Hello Kitty. Well, to us (or me) who grew up with her in the 90s – Mariah was a goddess. All her songs, even the ones with the overly complicated lyrics (she ‘incessantly’ and ‘nonchanlantly’ does things, regularly), the ones with lots of screeching and woah woah […]
Currently extremely popular with Korean cosmetic companies are these nail polish sets that feature 2-3 polishes that can be used separately or together. The sets are usually presented nicely in a box (so good for gifting) and are very reasonably priced! I couldn’t resist this Peripera nail polish ‘DIY Magic Nail Kit’ because of the greens – green is my favourite colour! I have reviewed many Peripera nail polishes (the one that looks like a […]
The final Etude House If Story Nail Kit (don’t ask my why it’s called that!) is called Christmas Tree. I am wondering if Etude will release new LE sets for Valentine’s Day, Easter….it would be nice if they did! Here are the two shades. I like these one, they’re quite funky. The price of these shipped is around £6 for both – I imagine it’s even cheaper to buy in Korea!
Yesterday I swatched the Etude House If Story Nail Kit no 1 and 2, released for Halloween. Today I have the two Christmas sets! Ice Witch has two whitish glittery polishes. All of these polishes have been really glittery so far – I guess that might be a theme with these sets. I do find the glitter in these polishes easy to remove as they’re chunky.
