NOTD: Nars Roman Holiday

It's been absolutely ages since I did a NOTD post, mostly because I tend to just post my nail pics on Instagram now (so do follow me here if you can't handle a life without knowing what colour my nails are...) but I thought I'd share with you a post on the Nars Roman Holiday polish for two reasons; firstly, my original post on the Modern Future collection from whence (whence!) this polish came was popular, plus also, it's quite an interesting pin[...]


NOTD: Models Own Diamond Luxe in Radiant Pink

My love for this new collection continues and is perfectly exemplified in the Radiant Pink shade from the Models Own Diamond Luxe collection; check out my original intro post here and my swatch post here.  I really liked all three of the shades I was sent, but Radiant Pink definitely stood out and had to go on my nails as soon as was practically possible. As you can see, it's a lovely bright pink that works on both fingers and toes, altho[...]


The Body Shop Colour Crush Nail Collection – NOTD in Mint Cream

24 gorgeous, colourful shades make-up the new The Body Shop Colour Crush Nail Collection, which selected stores will start stocking today.  As you'd expect from The Body Shop, these polishes are free from any nasties and are very well priced at £5 a pop.  Out of the shades I was sent, I wanted to try something a bit different rather than going for my usual pink or pink-leaning, so I thought I'd have a go at Mint Cream. I'm still pants at[...]


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) is an almost purple shade of pink that is very pretty and surprisingly unusual, not that you can tell from my pictures which make it look like a muted, fuchsia for some inex[...]

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 against my pasty feet! On my fingers I have Spanky which is a mid, warm, pink that's a kind of cross between salmon and bubblegum; it's a little too orange to be bubblegum but it isn't orange[...]

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 still muted enough for day wear - not that I ever take such things into consideration, but if you do then this is a great shade that works for both day and night time nails. I'm glad I waited for a while[...]
