Finally the 5th and final shade in the Tony Moly Galaxy collection is GT05 a purple toned polish. It has purple and blue glitters and is quite chunky. I know a lot of people who love purple polishes although it’s not really my thing – they seem to look better on other people!
Another super chunky glitter nail polish from Tony Moly Galaxy Nail Polish! Like the copper one I swatched yesterday, GT04 is a very glittery thick green. I love green. There are some real strengths to the glitter polishes; they are so densely packed and not wishy washy at all.
Today’s polish is Tony Moly Galaxy Polish in GT03, one of my favourites which is a rich copper and bronze. The base is sort of a golden brown but you can’t see it for all the glitter! It looks a bit simple in there but on the nail there is more too it; copper, gold, […]
Today I have Tony Moly Galaxy Nail Polish in GT02 which is a dark navy blue base (to me anyway) with tons of micro sparkles. It is similar to GT01 (reviewed yesterday) although the glitter is finer and there are fewer contrasts in the colour. I think it’s more elegant GT01. The glitters in this […]
I love a shimmery and glittery polish – why? Because any idiot can apply a glitter polish and make it look good, present company included. Having said that I despise removing them -urgh. But I love the effect. I either don’t wear a polish or wear something quite striking, nothing inbetween. When I spotted these […]
I have been hauling nail polishes a lot recently – I love collecting them but I really can’t be bothered applying it most of the time – when they make drying times 1 minute or less, then I’m game. Otherwise…I just end up staring at every imperfection. I do it to other people…if you see […]
To be honest I haven’t bought anything from Illamasqua for a while. Maybe its because it’s quite dark and brooding and I’ve been in the mood for princessy and light packaging lately! However – I was sent three products from the Illamasqua ‘Theatre of the Nameless’ collection to try. I hadn’t seen the collection so […]
I’m in a holiday mood, so of course it’s time for something real fun! I bought this beautiful drop dead gorgeous polish from eBay – Missha Crystal Nail Polish in HGR01. This photo doesn’t do it justice, but it reminds me of Shu Uemura’s Metallic Green Eyeshadow – I think it was number 555. It’s […]
Following in the footsteps of other brands that make mini polishes (like Orly!) are the Oh My Gosh mini nail lacquers from Superdrug! This range is limited edition and comes in 20 colours split into a few key looks; Femme Fatale, Pop Art, Rock Chick & Nude Power. I have 5 of these to swatch:The […]
I really adore Becca cosmetics so was interested to see that they are launching new polishes. They’ve kept it simple with just 3 shades, and they are pretty neutral. Each polish has a self-levelling colour brush, and is fast drying. They’re free from formaldehyde and toluene. The summer shades are peachy/orange. Tangerine Dream is a […]
You love free stuff, I know you do – so if you like free stuff (well kinda free stuff) and nail polishes then here’s your chance to get two Nails Inc polishes (in exclusive shades, Atomic and OMP!, which coincidentally is the sound my stomach makes after a session at Buffet City): You need to […]
For some reason I went a bit nuts in Topshop recently buying a selection of make up! (more reviews coming soon!). One thing that they do which I really like is the Topshop Nail Polishes! I like the packaging and I think the colours are pretty cool for £5: I bought Dust Storm, a sheer […]
Majolica Majorca have a cute collection of nail polishes that are very affordable , although the bottles are quite dinky in comparison to some Western brands. They Speedy & Glossy range were on sale recently, so I picked up 4 new colours from adambeauty.com. Pinks…I am really into pink at the moment! Hot pinks and […]
I featured some ELF Nail Polish a few weeks ago – very good for the price, so I purchased 4 more to try. See, my favourite polish colours are hot pinks and bright corals! I noticed that 2 of these were “new formulas” and mango madness is a new colour. Anyway here are the polishes […]
Jill Stuart is probably one of the prettiest, if not the prettiest make up brand out there! On the downside…gah it’s so expensive and hard to get hold of. Oh and the results are…so-so! Here I am with two limited edition polishes, 104 Shine Beige and 105 Violet Red from the 2009 collection. I saw […]
Innisfree is a Korean Eco Beauty Brand with a number of cosmetic and skincare products. I’ve tried a few things and recently purchased these Eco Nail Polishes (I can’t find ingredient details anywhere!) because there were so many pretty shades to choose from (over 60!). Overall I’m not sure what I think of the Korean […]
My favourite kind of nail colour is bold and bright, because it seems to suit my olive skintone whereas pale shades disappear and overly dark ones are a bit harsh. L’oreal’s Tropical collection is just up my street! 5 new shades of bright purple, pink and orange reds! There is: 430 Wonderful Watermelon, 151 Dapper […]
Regular readers may know I like mini polishes like Mavala because I find it very hard to finish a polish so a dinky one is enough for me. Orly Mini Nail Polishes are just 5.3ml each but are rather nifty and come in 50 colours! The shade I have here is Terracota, a bright orange […]
Ready for some super chic nail polish? CND (Creative Nail Design) have been working with designer Jason Wu for the last 8 seasons and have, for the first time, taken 5 polishes to retail! The set contains 4 colours and one textured topcoat which gives a ‘tweed effect’. Swatches….
Estee Lauder nail polishes come in these distinctive ice cube shaped bottles and I quite like them because they’re sort of nostalgic AND they’re really study. No knocking them over accidentally… They have 9 new shades at the moment: 3 pretty shades I have: One very natural, one bold and spring-y, one deep…
