Illamasqua Glitterarti Nail Polish Review & Swatch

I’ve been really, really lax with being bothered to paint my nails over the past month or so. Nothing seems to have been lasting on my nails without peeling for more than a couple of days – that includes gel aswell! And my motivation for doing my nails (and the really bloody busy December I […]

Sephora Formula X Legend – Swatch & Review

I’m blasting through the recently acquired collection of Formula X polishes – this time it’s Legendary and its one that I must admit I looked and thought, I could probably pop this one in my giveaway box – I have loads like this, but curiosity got the better of me, the outer plastic was torn […]

Beauty #TBT – Sephora Formula X Naughty Newton Review

Whilst you may be thinking how is this a Beauty #TBT you bought this 3 weeks ago (haul here!), the reason I’m including it as a beauty throwback is because it’s been discontinued from Sephora and technically you can no longer get it, I scored this in a TK Maxx (yep, I know – how […]

Beauty #TBT – OPI Jade is the New Black

Spring 2010? Remember it? The release of OPI’s Hong Kong Collection had beauty addicts going ga-ga for one particular colour in the collection called Jade is the New Black. I was one of those people who wore this shade to death at the time (and it was at the point where I was just getting […]

OPI Russian Navy – Swatch & Review

Probably one of the most classic shades within OPI’s line is Russian Navy. A coveted favourite which I’ve had on my ‘eventually I’ll get it one day cause it’s always going to be around’ list for ages. When it arrived in my Second Tili Box I was excited to finally have my mitts on it […]

Sephora Formula X – Freaky Like Freud Swatch & Review

When I was researching the Formula X Polishes prior to going to New York, and I saw a polish called Freaky Like Freud, I knew it would be going on my shopping list, add to that it’s a gorgeous glitter that’s totally up my street, making it an utter no brainer.

Sephora Formula X Vortex – Swatch & Review

I was absolutely certain that I’d reviewed the Sephora X polishes that I bought in New York in January – I only picked up two, and I re-pulled them out of my collection this week to remind me what I did or didn’t like about them and discovered that I hadn’t reviewed either of them, […]

Ciate Corrupted Neons Electronica

If it wasn’t for July’s Look Incredible box, I probably wouldn’t have ever picked up one of the Ciate Corrupted Neons sets. I’ve seen them many, many times in my local CCO type store and always walked past them thanks to the rocky relationship I’ve had with Ciate.

Essie Gel Couture – Model Citizen Wear Test

The lastest in a long line of nail polish brands offering gel like polish with long wear is Essie. Their Gel Couture range has been promoted heavily online for a few months and after pretty darn good experience with the Orly Epix range, the Essie range piqued my interest to try too.

H&M Intergalatic Polish

I haven’t yet had chance to try out the H&M beauty range as much as I would have liked for now. I would have liked as of yet. When it comes to new ranges I like to go to stores and get a feel for things in person, but for some reason the H&M stores […]

China Glaze Turned Up Turqoise Swatch and Review

I’ve been inspired by Stashy’s endeavour to review a polish a week – this year there’s been a serious lack of nail polish reviews from me. As a blog that started as a purely nail varnish reviews for the first 10 months or so, that’s a bit of an embarrassment with about three of them […]

Orly Epix Review – Indie & Topcoat

I was quite happy to receive a few polishes from Just Beauty whilst visiting the Bloggers Ball. Being the big old nail varnish collector that I am I’m always happy to have new ranges to try out. Whilst I’d heard of the Orly Epix Range there was little I’d seen from reviews so I went in […]
