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…

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…

MUA Luxe London Glitter Eye Palettes in Rock Chick and Diva

November 21, 2013

My transition from occasional glitter lover to full on magpie seems to be reaching an all time climax and I nearly did myself some damage when I saw these little boxes of sparkle! There are four palettes on offer, Rock Chick, Diva, Burlesque and Twilight, ranging from cool blues to fiery reds. I of course went for the two blue toned palettes Rock Chick and Diva and I’ve been pretty mesmerized with them since. The glitter is suspended in a gel,…

NYC Disco Inferno Topcoat

November 19, 2013
NYC Disco Inferno Top Coat

NYC are really upping the game on glitter topcoats at the moment. As well as  the gorgeous Rock Muse collection (reviewed here) I also spotted this gorgeous stand alone shade Disco Inferno. A clear base with blue and silver holo glitter, it really has to be seen up close to understand how absolutely gorgeous it is. I think it would look great over any complimentary shade but I really love how it looks over the dark blue. (B. Complete 180…

NYC Rock Muse Collection and Swatches

November 13, 2013
IMG_6577

One of my favourite nail brands + glitter + rock music influences names = win. There are four colours in the NYC Rock Muse collection and I managed to grab them all across two different trips to Superdrug. I’ll admit it was the polish names, subtle (and not so subtle!) nods to some rock greats that made me need these, but I’m actually a big fan of glitter polishes anyway so I’m sure they would have ended up in my…

September most wanted!

September 11, 2013
Shut-up-and-take-my-money

  The changing of the season always brings with is a whole bunch of new releases, and for some reason this time a lot of them are things that want to empty my bank account!   First up Rockateur from Benefit. Er hello Benefit. Please stop making things that I want as my purse is very empty and I attribute most of that to your shiny pretty things! I’ll admit the rose gold shimmer of Rockateur is not exactly the…

NOTD – OPI I don’t give a Rotterdam & Revlon Stunning

July 17, 2013

  This was my first OPI varnish and I have to admit it was the name, not the colour that sold it to me. I purchased “I don’t give a Rotterdam” purely on the basis that I missed my boyfriend (who lives in Rotterdam!) and the name cheered me up! Luckily I found it on Fragrance Direct for £3.99 so managed to grab a bargain with full RRP at around £11.50!     It’s a lovely bluey grey with a…

NOTD – Avon Opalesce

July 11, 2013

  I’ve been wanting to try out a flake-glitter topcoat for a while, and when I saw this blue tinted one from Avon I simply had to try it. There’s two coats of Avon Speed Dry in Fast Time Teal as the base (one of my favourites as you can see from how much I’ve already used! I love fast dry nails, as I really can’t stand waiting for them to dry! The Avon Top Coat in Opalesce didn’t seem…
