China Glaze -That’s Shore Bright

I’m back with ANOTHER of the Sunsational shades today.. LOVE THEM!!! I have a few more in my basket right now that I will be buying just as soon as this post is written. I have so much nail polish but would happily give it all up for this collection alone, it’s SO GOOD! As [...]

China Glaze – Too Yacht To Handle

I am completely OBSESSED with this nail polish, I’ve already repainted my nails with it twice and 2 others arrived with it I’ve paid no attention to at all as yet so that’s a big deal. I’ve been looking for a super bright aqua colour like this for what feels like forever and I don’t [...]

Nails Inc Porchester Square

I don’t know what it is recently but I cannot take good nail pictures to save my life. Luckily you can see enough to get the general idea and it’s a pretty popular colour so I’m fairly certain you will have all seen this somewhere before. I had heard the likes of VivianaDoesMakeup rave on [...]

NYC City Blackout

This was the best picture of a bad bunch so apologies for that but I wanted to share what was my rebellious Valentines manicure. I dyed my hair purple BEFORE taking these pictures – #bbloggerfail – and there seems to be some kind of mystery fluff on my index finger but if we could ignore [...]

Topshop – Green Room

┬áThere aren’t many colours I feel like I’m missing from my nail polish collection but a really good, bright (almost neon) teal remained elusive. I saw an Essie colour on the nails of many YouTubers last year that I now forget the name of but when I finally got my hands on it it just [...]

Winter Wonderland

So it’s pretty cold over In New York right now and while I was wondering what to wear on my nails for our trip I decided to take inspiration from the weather. I’ve actually been wearing this combination for a week now and with no top coat it has held up so well that I [...]

Maybelline Color Show Street Artist Top Coats

Oh how I love instagram for showing me new products I didn’t even know were available. I saw someone ‘haul’ a couple of these new top coats and couldn’t wait to pick some up for myself, I fell in love with Maybelline polishes over Christmas so anytime something interesting comes up from them in future [...]

China Glaze Neon & On & On – Neon New Year

When I showed you Sun Of A Peach I promised to leave the next China Glaze Neon ‘top(coat)less”and here it is. As you can see it’s almost matte which I think adds to the pop of the neon glow however I do prefer a glossy finish so a top coat went on after this photo [...]

Barry M Aztec Green – Neon New Year

This is not my favourite in the series but it’s neon and it’s new to me so since I would be posting it soon anyway I thought I’d include it. It’s not the colour I dislike it’s the formula, very sheer and watery, it took 4 coats to get to the picture above and even [...]

OPI Big Hair, Big Nails – Neon New Year

Can a red be neon? I think so.. or at least if it can’t then this as close as you’re ever gonna get! Big Hair, Big Nails was launched with the Texas collection in 2010 (if my memory serves me). The formula is gel-like in that it’s translucent so even when it’s built up to [...]

Models Own Midori – Neon New Year

It wasn’t long since you saw this colour on my blog but I had to include it in my neon new year series, didn’t I? I have another green coming up that’s not quite so neon and actually no longer available so although this is limited edition I thought it was worth posting as you [...]

China Glaze Sun Of A Peach – Neon New Year

My nail posts are always popular so when I decided to kick off the new year with another mini series I decided to stick with that category. Today is the first of 7 and we are going to be going neon.. it seems to be a big trend for the Spring Summer and much as [...]

NYE Nails – Purple Party

┬áTis the season so I thought I’d show you the nails I’ll be wearing this New Years Eve. Unlike many of you I have no set plans for the evening ahead, I’ll likely share a bottle of bubbly with my husband watching Jools Holland (my choice, not his) ring in the New Year before we [...]

December Beauty Favourites

It’s that time again! Today I’ll be running down my current product loves, I know many bloggers shun December favourites in favour of an annual favourites video but I will be doing both.. what I loved this month isn’t necessarily what I’ve loved all year so my 2013 monster video will be up on Friday. [...]

nail wraps

Christmas Nail Wraps

I’ve tried nail wraps in the past and they’ve either been horrendously thick stickers or super fiddly strips of nail polish.. neither of which last more than a day so I wasn’t super excited about trying more but after these two packs I’m glad I did. It was the Avon Candy Cane nail stickers that [...]

Midori For Models Own

I posted pictures of these polishes on Instagram on Friday and had SO many questions about them, I was going to wait until after Christmas to blog them but I decided the sooner the better. You can expect to see more Models Own in the coming months as my recent Clothes Show purchases have reignited [...]
