Primark P.S Gel Effect Top Coat Review

April 7, 2014
Primark P.S I Love You Gel Effect Top Coat Review

  If you’ve been into Primark recently you’ll likely have noticed that they are rolling out a new line of “P.S” beauty products. In my local shop they seemed to be mostly nail products but I’ve seen reviews popping up of all sorts of things! Being Primark they are all of course at ridiculously low prices with most being only £1.00, this of course lead to a smash and grab style shopping trip that left both Amie and I with a…

Sally Hansen Sugar Coat in Lick-O-Rich, Razzleberry and Cherry Drop

March 31, 2014
Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Lick-O-Rich, Razzleberry and Cherry Drop

  As soon as I opened this trio of gorgeous polishes on my birthday I knew it was love at first sight! I’m a big fan of the textured nail look but there aren’t too many of them about that are this easy to use and wear. There are eight colours in the range but these are definitely the three that I’m likely to get the most wear out of.  First up I love the bottle shape and the decal…

Etos Glitter Nails and Glitter Topcoat

February 25, 2014
Etos Glitter Nails

  If you follow me on Instagram or Twitter you will know I’ve just got back from a trip to Holland to see my lovely other half, and almost all of these trips involve me popping into Etos (sort of the Dutch Boots) to pick up a couple of their own brand nail polishes. This time I went for a shimmery pair of silvers, one Glitter Nails Polish and one Glitter topcoat. Unfortunately neither of them are named or even…

Jess Glitter Nail Varnish – Rock Chick, Ibiza, Tiger Lily, Celebration & Alfresco

February 23, 2014
Jess Glitter Nail Varnish

 I’m a sucker for a bargain and can never resist poking my head in Poundland to see what manner of lovely things I can purchase for only one hundred shiny pennies. I often pick up Revlon and Sally Hansen polishes for a fraction of the RRP, but skip past the lesser known or own brands. I’ve never heard of Jess before, but the Poundland website tells me they are a new and exclusive range which would explain why I’ve not…

Colourful Leopard Print Nail Art Tutorial

February 16, 2014
featured-img-leopard-nails

Today I had every intention of sorting out my make-up and varnishes that have seemingly ended up taking over the entire corner of the bedroom. What actually happened is I found this really garish Pink nails inc colour that I’ve never worn, shook my head and took it upon myself to use it. So instead of organising and stacking, I’ve created a cute little tutorial for you all. You will need: Base colour (something light preferably) I’m using Nails inc…

Debenhams Beauty Box Nail Varnish

February 4, 2014

I received one of Debenham’s Beauty Box sets this Christmas and was pleasantly surprised at the contents – of which came 8 beautiful nail varnish’s. Now Debenham’s isn’t really the sort of store that I think of when it comes to nail varnish, in terms of it’s own brand stuff, but the colours from this box are absolutely gorgeous! The first two here are my favourite – this is two coats and the pigment’s are just superb. The purple is…

Roo Beauty Zebra Print Travel Nail Polish Storage

Roo Beauty Nail Varnish Storage Zebra

      Today I want to share this awesomely cute nail varnish case from Roo Beauty! I travel around a lot with my band (not to mention the frequent trips across the channel to see my boyfriend who is studying in Rotterdam!) and I always loose my nail varnishes in the bottom of a travel case somewhere. Cut to ten minutes before stage time and I’m frantically trying to find a black sharpie to cover up all the chips…

Using Magnetic Nail Varnish

January 29, 2014
magnetic-nail-tut-thumb

Some months ago now, I posted a Nail of the day which included Avon’s Colour Attract Magnetic Nail Varnish. Since then, I’ve had a few people asking me how to use magnetic wands/blocks with their nail varnish and I have to admit, looking back to when I first tried these out – I too was a little confused. So to help you all out, I’ve taken a few photo’s to show you. First off, start by painting your nails with the…

Models Own Velvet Goth Trio

January 28, 2014
Models Own Velvet

  I can’t believe how long it has taken me to get a review up for this set – they’ve been on my nails almost constantly since December! I’ve only tried a few Models Own polishes, and despite my love for all things glitter they were all traditional finishes, but I can see my collection growing very swiftly on the basis of this set! The Velvet Goth Trio is an ASOS online exclusive that takes three shades from the  collection…

Shatter by O.P.I

January 16, 2014
Shatter by OPI

I am very much a latecomer when it comes to the crackle nail polish scene. I had one or two when they first hit the market but never really bothered with them much, I think these three polishes from O.P.I have completely changed my mind! I found these in Pound World of all places, and picked up Shatter the Scales, Super Bass Shatter and Black Shatter. I remember reading a review on these somewhere that hinted that if you applied them directly…
