Another Peripera nail polish! I am obsessed! The fact is I love a snotty green polish. Love it. This bright green-yellow-lime shade is just so garish that I love it. No ones bogey is that luminous but I still love it: The packaging is fine – the end of the handle is too long for my liking though.
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 it. Unlike most of the other polishes, this does NOT have a matching lipstick. Shame. This is a sheer polish […]
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 quite quickly which is cool; it’s never as fast as they say but I do find I can move around […]
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…
MeMeMe have had a pretty stylish make over and they’re certainly looking more chic! I have already tried 3 shades here. Two new additions, in shades of green: I like their Maxi Brush which is basically a wide, square brush. It means you can do a nail in 2 swipes (or at least I can!) so less time faffing about. What do you think of these greens for spring? Swatches:
It’s the start of random nail week! Where I swatch some of the pretty polishes that have come my way! First up is the cheapest of them all, ELF nail polish. Here are two of their newer shades, Purple Dream and Teal Blue: I knew these would be cheap, I didn’t realise how cheap. I presumed they were about £3 each – they are only £1.50 each! Amazing! I’m not one for super expensive nail […]
I already professed my love for Top Shop nail polish so I decided to go in store and buy a few more. Showing great restraint I chose two – a party shade and something for every day. I am not a big neutral fan so I chose Art School as my every day, a super pretty medium bright coral peach: Then I chose Gypsy Night as my party shade, a grey black with tons of […]
People have been asking me for the last week what polish I am wearing – this hot red, slightly orangey based is ‘In The Red’ from Top Shop. It gives a really good even coverage and is glossy finish. More importantly, I have worn this baby (with Coffret D’or Gel Finish top coat) for 11 days and it hasn’t even chipped! This NEVER happens to me! And I’ve been giving it a hard time (I […]
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 […]
Etude House Petit Darling Polishes are super lovely and this pretty lilac is no exception (shade PP901): I quite like the fact that there’s no sparkle to it, it’s just a super creamy lilac. What do you think?
Who would’ve thought that Stargazer could produce such a gorgeous deep purple nail polish: I quite like Stargazer polishes, I’ve actually had some great experiences with them even though they are cheap as chips. This is shade 142 a rich cool toned purple. What do you think?
I’ve never been one for purple polish, yet purples is one of my favourite shades for my eyes and clothes! Barielle Passion Pirouette is a perfect purple – not too light, not too dark… What do you think?
So I was supposed to have a 5th nail picture for you but I realised, too late, that I never took one, I have in fact forgotten how to count. So instead here’s a picture of a cat with nice nails: This isn’t actually polish – its a product called Soft Paws, little caps you add to the end of the cats nails so they can’t scratch and destroy everything. I think it’s a bit […]
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?
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 […]
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 […]
I’m going through my relatively small nail polish collection and photographing my favourite shades. This week is Greens! Barielle has some really unusual shades – I don’t own ANYTHING ELSE like this! Myzra’s Meadow is a soft, pretty green -with an almost green edge to it. It has multi toned sparkle in it, which adds to how unusual it is…I think without the sparkle it would be pretty dull! What do you think?
I’m going through my relatively small nail polish collection and photographing my favourite shades. This week is Greens! POP Beauty nail polish I find rather impressive – at least, I think it looks pretty good in photographs! This one is called Radioactive…I am sure you can see why? It’s LUMINOUS! I like this though…no I am not going to be scaring young children with it…maybe on halloween, but I still think it does really well […]
I’m going through my relatively small nail polish collection and photographing my favourite shades. This week is Greens! Orly Polishes I do like – I don’t think I’ve found a “killer” shade by them yet BUT, I love the texture which is quite thin – makes it easy for me to apply. It also seems to be generously sized! Green Apple has more attitude than a minty green, I think, it has more POW! I’m […]
I’m going through my relatively small nail polish collection and photographing my favourite shades. This week is Greens! This Etude House Petit Darling nail polish is a bright, bright green – yet it hurts my eyes a little and no I wouldn’t wear it if I had anything serious going on… I guess it’s a bit of fun. It reminds me of glow in the dark paint, whilst it’s glowing. I like the creaminess of […]
