Models Own Sweet Shop in Rhubarb and Custard, Gumballs and Pear Drops

The Models Own Sweet Shop collection has now launched and I have three of the shades to share with you.  I will say, I was expecting run-of-the-mill shades with the emphasis being on the scent more than anything, but the shades themselves are actually really…

Christian Louboutin Beauté

Fashion and beauty are so intrinsically linked that launches such as the Christian Louboutin Beauté range make perfect sense.  The highly anticipated arrival of the Christian Louboutin Beauté line of extremely luxury polishes are starting with, as you may expect, the very red that embodies the brand and that…

NOTD: Only Fingers + Toes Delish

I raved about the Only Fingers + Toes nail brand in my intro post here, and now here’s a look at the first shade I used, which is the beautiful metallic raspberry shade Delish.  It’s a gorgeous, easy shade that is striking and pretty, but…

Models Own Sweet Shop Collection

Later this week sees the arrival of the newest launch from fab nail brand Models Own, the Sweet Shop Collection. The Models Own Sweet Shop Collection contains five new shades that are flavoured with a sweet-based scent that falls within the sweet shop category.  The…

An Introduction to Only Fingers + Toes

If you love nails (and going by the traffic I get for any nail-related posts, I think you do…) then you might want to look away now, as I’m about to cost you a small fortune.  I have a very strange relationship with nail products,…

Boots No7 Gel-Look Shine Summer Colours

When the sun is out, nothing compliments the wonderful glow quite as much as beautiful, vibrant lips and tips.  The summer shades of the Boots No7 Gel-Look Shine polishes are truly summery colours; bright, cheery, fun and something for everyone, these are absolutely lovely.  I…

Nails Inc Summer Must-Haves 2014

There are some lovely releases from Nails Inc this year, with my favourites probably being the new shades of the Gel Effect polishes as the shade selection is seriously beautiful, and surprisingly, having had a little play with them, I think I’d also rate the…

Zoya SS14 Shades: Kirtridge and Harper

  Zoya have released their SS14 collection and it contains some real gems.  There are three collections within the seasonal launch, Bubbly – dense and fairly full coverage holographic glitter in six shades (Staasi – green, Muse – blue, Binx – light purple, Harper – mid…

Maybelline Superstay Nail Colour: New Shades

When the invitation to the launch of the new Maybelline Superstay shades arrived, it asked whether I’d be in the brights camp or the pastels camp as there are new shades that fit into both categories.  I figured I’d be in the brights category but…

Nubar Spring in the City

Even though I am *rubbish* at applying nail polish and my nail art skills are depressingly minimal/non-existent, I do love a good nail polish; there’s just something inexplicably exciting about finding a new range or collection and that’s how I felt when I first came…

Bourjois Magic Nail Polish Remover – Hands & Feet

Last year we all got a bit excited about the Bourjois Magic Nail Polish remover, which was a pot containing a sponge soaked in remover that allowed us to whip off polish quickly and easily without the need for any cotton pads or arduous rubbing.…

Liz Earle SS14 Limited Edition Nail Polish Shades: Awakening and Moonlight

If you’re a fan of the recently released Liz Earle polishes then you’ll want to check out their new shades for SS14, Awakening and Moonlight.  Awakening is a coral peach tone (it’s described as pastel pink but I wouldn’t personally see it as a pink…

New From Models Own

I love this time of year where all the Spring/Summer nail colours launch and make you really feel like relatively stable sunshine is genuinely nearby.  In the same way the Coca Cola lorry ad makes me think Holidays really are a’comin’, fun new nail launches…

Nails Inc Daisy Lane Floral

I remember hearing about the Nails Inc Florals a while back and thinking that I couldn’t wait to try them; they reminded me of the OPI Minnie Mouse heart polish that I never managed to get my hands on, so when the Nails Inc Easter…
