Easy Peasy Nail Art – Etude House Code B Pen in Black

If you like nail varnish/polish then I have a nice treat for you coming up with lots of lovely Illamasqua swatches. Anyway – when it comes nails I am just a pretender. If I get a mark on newly applied polish they all have to come off cos I can’t stand it. I am no nail art – artiste. I don’t have the patience, but I commend those that do. When I spotted this product […]

NEW! EXCLUSIVE! Swatch of the Day No. 1: Illamasqua Victory Shimmer Nail Polish Swatch

Beginning today its the new Swatch of the Day series to celebrate the glory of the swatch! My goal is to produce swatches of items that are harder to find on the net and product high quality, clear, studio quality swatches. What good is a swatch you can’t even see, right?

So I am not a mad nail polish addict – when I do buy one its normally a stand out color I just had to have, and its always something overpriced from Chanel or Nars. I returned to my nail collection which is still quite big, to find lots of horrible colours that had started to separate and go cloggy. Yuk! Then there was Mavala. I have seen the little stands for years but never […]

Beauty Invention: Nail Protectors for the klutz in you

There’s nothing better than a good old bizarre strange Asian invention – so when I saw these nail protectors on eBay I just had to buy them: I am a complete novice when it comes to nail application. I can’t stay still long enough for the damn thing to dry so it always smudges, then I can’t stand it and it all comes off again. So these clips go on over the freshly painted nail […]
