#NOTD Hot Pink Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure and O.P.I Silver Shatter Topcoat

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Cherry Up This was my first time using this particular varnish.  I am a huge fan of Sally Hansen products, especially the topcoats, so I was keen to try it. It is a glossy, hard wearing polish that I would most certainly buy again, though I love this colour. One is several bargain picks in a Poundland haul recently was O.P.I shatter topcoat.  You can look at paying around £12 for one of these at full price, so quite a saving. I found I had to apply one really thick coat for a decent […]

#NOTD Holiday Nails Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint in Blueberry & Essie No Place Like Chrome | Blue and Silver Mani

Barry M Gelly Hi Shine Nail Paint in Blueberry  //  Essie Polish No Place Like Chrome I love Barry M.  For £2.99-£3.99 you can nab a polish from their range, which is ever changing with current trends. Cute new colours are always on the menu as well as different textures and finishes.  This Gelly Nail Paint is designed for high shine, to look like a gel mani without all the faff and UV lights.  Although it doesn’t wear like a gel mani, I love the high shine and consistency.  It’s very easy to apply, which I’m assuming is something to […]

Silver Moyra Matt Metallic Polish No. 252  //  Lilac Moyra Matt Metallis Polish No. 255  //  Sally Hansen Super Shine High Gloss Top Coat In this mani I’ve been showcasing these gorgeous boutique nail covers in some different shapes and styles and trying to broaden my skills set The pictures don’t show the detailing as I would like as the effect is very subtle but still effective.  I often go for very loud and bright polish, but this would be perfect for someone wanting to experiment with nail art and different colours that are not to in your face. Using […]

#NOTD grey silver white // Barry M OPI CK Headline Colours – quirky work look

Headline colours – Quicksand  //  Barry M Matte Mocha 333  //  CK – Silvivor  //  OPI silver shatter topcoat  //  Barry M Matte White 66 I decided to go for broke with this mani, and pulled out five different products to create this look.  Inspired by a pic on Pinterest, I wanted a grey and silver look.  The Headline Colours polish I originally pulled out went on as more of a taupe, so I balanced it with a gorgeous matt taupe by Barry M.  It is a little mix and match, and I have clipped my nails short again, but […]

Product review: the first and the original Revolution by piCture pOlish – glitter base has arrived

When I first heard about this product just before Christmas, I was so excited and just couldn’t wait to get my hands on some.  Jane over at British Beauty Blogger made a video of 2014 trend on Youtube which was excellent (check it out on the Youtube link through her blog).  One of her predictions, which was swiftly followed by a blog post about the brand new product, was for a nail polish base specially made for glitter polish – and here it is! Bought from Sally Magpies (who’s shop I have recently reviewed), this product is currently out of […]

I also love that mint is really in at the moment, and so highly available.  As you can see from my […]

Review: Sally Magpies nail polish store – online shopping at its best

I recently placed an order with Sally Magpies nail store, and was just soooo impressed, I had to share her with you guys.  I was shopping for a specific product from overseas that she had in store.  There’s a post about that to follow so I shan’t spoil the surprise.  She has a huge array of nail vanrnishes and accessories for nail art, the perfect frenchie, stamps, and is happy to try and get hold of anything you’re looking for but haven’t been able to find.  The product I just had to have is from Australia, so I was thrilled […]

NOTD: Matte nails – Barry M matte polish in Mocha

Just a standard mani here, as was my first time using a matte nail polish, and I wanted to get the full effect.  I really adore it, and can’t wait to get more colours, and play with the finish using different coloured tips, and texturising with spots of clear shiny polish for different effects. I’m a little nail crazy right now – so am sure this will be a pretty regular feature.  Plus I have some fabulous products on the way that I want to try and share with you guys. This is Barry M pain paint in Mocha – […]

NOTD: midnight blue and white crackle glaze – frozen pond

I absolutely loved OPI’s black crackle glaze when it came out a couple of years ago.  Since then I have seen lots of dupes in lots of colours.  I’ve been tempted, but as I’ve only just given up my gellish mani’s, there was no point in buying.  As you guys know, I’ve been experimenting with my my own nail looks recently, with much error correcting and retouching.  I have been having fun though. Doing a last spot of Christmas shopping, I spotted a white ‘nail smash’ topcoat in the collection 2000 section, and just had to indulge. I thought I’d […]
