OPI Mexico City 2020

OPI Mexico City Collection – Spring 2020

I so rarely go to events nowadays, but a few weeks ago, OPI launched their Mexico City collection with a night of Mexico-themed joy that was so up my street, and I'm so glad I went! Not only is the collection a colour-lovers dream, the event itself involved consuming a series of Mexico tapas and drinking tasty Mexican cocktails (virgin for me, since I was driving) and it was definitely my favourite event for a while. As with all OPI collect[...]

OPI Neon Collection 2019

OPI Neon Collection 2019

Is there anything better than a bright nail in the summer sun? I've realised recently just how much I love colour and how happy the right, bright shades can make me, so I'm happily embracing all things neon, starting with the gorgeous OPI Neon Collection for Summer 2019. The collection contains six fantastically bright shades, with a good mix and a finish that I want to call semi-matte - I can't seem to find any confirmation either way online, but[...]

Nails Inc Royal Gems

Nails Inc Royal Gems Value Set

I've been meaning to treat myself to a little bit of Nails Inc joy for quite a while now, so when the Royal Gems set started showing up on my Facebook feed dropping hints left, right and centre, I thought that would be a good set for me to invest in, especially as, recently, I'm really trying to take better care of my nails...although right now they look absolutely terrible, so clearly that isn't going very well.  Anyway... The Nails Inc R[...]

Mavala 60th Anniversary (LE releases and John Lewis Roadshow)

*PR Samples* Mavala have been around for 60 years, can you believe that? To celebrate this mega milestone they have released a couple of Limited Edition releases alongside a promotional road show offering fans free shape and polishes.  The first of the LE releases is the Pure Diamond polish, which is a silver holographic glitter that perfectly marks the silver anniversary of the brand. The second LE release is the one I find most exciting, wh[...]


Morgan Taylor The Colour of Petals Collection

*PR Samples/Gifted/Aff. links* [lookbook id="25864" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] The Morgan Taylor The Colour of Petals Collection could not be more Spring-like; the colours are six different pastels that mostly lean pink or lilac - great if you're like me and love a pastel nail, but less so if you prefer a brighter shade.  What I really like about the Morgan Taylor The Colour of Petals Collection is that it's themed -[...]


OPI Tokyo Collection

[lookbook id="25709" show-legend="true" show-desc="true" show-reveal="false"] I was hugely excited when I first got wind of the OP Tokyo Collection, as I think Tokyo is such a great inspiration for a nail edit - when thinking of Tokyo I think of brights, acids, neons and lots and lots of colour! The OPI Tokyo is fun, bright very heavy on the pinks, so if you're like me and really a good pink nail, they've got you covered with several takes on baby,[...]

Sensationail StripGel Peel Off Base Coat

Finding a good at-home gel nails kit was like a revelation to me, as gel kits allow you to give yourself a very quick nail job with long-lasting results, and no sitting around waiting for the polish to set and dry.  The only reason I don't use gel nails religiously is because I like the freedom to quickly chop and change colour, which I don't think you can do with gel polish - the irony being that it's actually more of a hassle to remove the poli[...]

OPI Nutcracker Collection

With just a few more days to go until Christmas Day arrives, some of you might not be feeling the Christmas Cheer; hopefully this gorgeous collection, a collaboration between Disney's The Nutcracker and OPI, will change that, as this is such a beautifully festive edit of colours that just looking at it makes me feel Christmassy! I'm also so impressed by how OPI collections are interpreted, as they're always so enticing and full of colour, w[...]

OPI Peru Collection

The OPI Peru Collection is absolutely gorgeous.  It's the most perfect collection of fun and colourful shades that are so perfect for transitioning nails into more Autumnal colours.  As is usually the case with any OPI collection, there is something for everyone; there are 12 great shades with a couple of nudes, some pops of pink and purple, a stunning, muted blue and finally four takes on vampy reds - even the reds alone have something for ever[...]

Elegant Touch Girls on Tour False Nail Collection

It has been years since I used false nails, but when I was in my teens I used to use them regularly, as they're such a fab way to quickly and drastically improve the look of your nails - you literally just stick them on and you're good to go.  The Summer-ready Elegant Touch Girls on Tour collection contains four designs that are bright, fun and colourful. The Girls on Tour City Slickin' nails come in a stiletto style (pointed) and are a nu[...]

Red Carpet Manicure Royal Court-Ture Collection

I'm so glad I managed to squeeze in this post on the Red Carpet Manicure Royal Court-Ture Collection as it's such a lovely, festive edit of colours that will make a great choice for the upcoming party season.  I've literally just worked out that RCM are available at John Lewis, which is even better news as that makes the brand a lot more accessible. Red Carpet Manicure is my go-to brand for gel manicures as it's such a sensible line-up of[...]
