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 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 […]
I have a NOTD for you from eye CANDY London – a Colour Flip Nail Polish (£8) which supposedly has a ‘metallic colour flip particle technology’. In different light and at different angles, this polish should give you different effects! There are 4 shades in this range, Green with Envy, Regally Yours (the one I […]
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 […]
More Essence make up coming up! So when I was in Hungary I bought loads of random drugstore make up to test out. This cheapy range, Essence had a new collection out at the time called Vampire’s Love, a few random items. I thought the polishes looked ok so I bought all five from the […]
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 […]
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 […]
I spent a bit of time talking about the Peripera Perfume nail polishes and now I have moved on to the Nail Enamel range! The Nail Enamel Range is cheaper (about £2 less) and is supposed to be a 1 coat, quick dry and long lasting polish. It should last 7 days based on just […]
I am sure many of you have already heard of Magnetic Nail Polish – these polishes contain very fine metallic particles and if you apply a magnet to them whilst they are still wet, they move around creating unique patterns. It’s a clever idea! Someone finally put it together, a bit like the Crackles we […]
Models Own Beetlejuice was talked about with such passion from Nail Polish loving bloggers that I just had to purchase all 5 of the colours on launch. I can see why people love it so much…it’s a gorgeous looking! Each bottle contains four pearlescent colours mixed into one gleaming shade for an optimum high finish. […]
