Models Own Disco Pants in Sound Factory, Copacabana and Roxy

Models Own are pumping out some fab new collections lately and I have to say, they’re all right up my street.  Rather than going down the typical dirgy, murky autumnal shades route, they’re keeping things bright and sparkly, as is perfectly exhibited in their new Disco…

Models Own Diamond Luxe in Radiant Pink, Emerald Green and Oval Plum

I wrote about the arrival of these gorgeous polishes from Models Own here, of which there are 10 new shades that all contain real diamond dust.  I have to say, I really, really love this collection as the colours are just fantastic.   They’re unashamedly…

Nails Inc Gel Effect AW14

I remembering being introduced to the small collection of Nails Inc Gel Effect shades during my pregnancy – I believe there were only 4 shades to start with – and now there are 20 shades in total if you include the latest arrivals which are…

Max Factor Gel Shine Lacquers

It seems every brand is jumping on the gel polish bandwagon lately (it’s the BB Cream of 2014) with varying degrees of success.  The new Max Factor Gel Shine Lacquers are extremely good and deliver on every aspect that they promise; they’re easy to apply,…

Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy Nail Enamel

A few weeks ago I attended a nail masterclass with Jenny Longworth who is the UK Nail Ambassador for Revlon.  It was a really great experience that taught me a lot about creating a better at-home manicure – something I’m extremely bad at – which…

NOTD: Kiko Daring Game Poker Nail Lacquer in Irresistible Orchid

Today I have for you an extremely unhelpful NOTD feature that gives you absolutely no idea of the reality of this colour, Irresistible Orchid, from the Kiko Daring Game collection.  You’re welcome.  This very on-trend shade (Pantone 2014 colour of the year is Radiant Orchid)…

Undercover Colors: Beauty and the Battle Against Date Rape

A new type of nail polish has been created by a group of four students at North Carolina State University that detects date-rape chemicals in drinks; the person who’s wearing it just stirs the drink with their finger, then if the chemicals are present, the…

NOTD: Only Fingers + Toes Spanky

I’m still joyfully making my way through my selection box of Only Fingers + Toes shades (you can check out the shades I have here) and I’m currently sporting Glam Squad on my toes which is  a beautiful, shimmering aubergine shade that looks very good…

Birchbox Manithon

Nope! Nothing to do with men as you might have concluded based on the name (no? Just me then?) but this is actually a portmanteau using the words “manicure” and “marathon” which is a pretty accurate description of what’s happening on the 29th August 2014 –…
