My Faves: Pretty Pastel Polishes

Hi Beauties

Spring is finally coming, there are lighter mornings which makes dragging myself out of bed for work a nicer experience, there are cute clothes in my fave shops that I can’t wait to get my hands on, but best of all there are pretty spring time pastel polishes,

And here are some of my faves… 

The first pretty pastel polish I want to feature in this post is ‘Apple Pie’ by Models Own, It’s a stunning pale green shade that would look lovely with a tan 



The second polish is a sky blue shade, now as many of you know I’m not really a blue nail polish kind of girl, but Maybelline’s ‘Uptown Blue’ really stood out to me, it reminds me of a clear sky on a warm sunny day, it’s simply beautiful. 



The third polish is one I really do want to try its Essie’s ‘Garden Variety’ which is part of their new spring collection, its a very unquie shade, it has the perfect balance between green and blue that creates a colour all it own that is perfect for the coming spring.



The next polish is from Rimmel’s new Rita Ora collection, not only are the bottles super cute and girly but the colours are sweet and pastel perfect, my favourite is ‘Sweet Retreat’ is a lovely blue toned pink shade and will make you look very tanned.



Thank you lovely for the beautiful swatches 

Next I’m going to move onto a polish from Revlon that has been featured in many several of my posts before, yes as you may have guessed it’s a green and no it isn’t ‘Rain Forest’. ‘Minted’ (Thanks for the lovely swatch huni) is a classic Spring to summer transition shade, that isn’t to bright to be worn day or night.



 ‘Road Rage’ from Barry M is one that I went to purchase last week, it is part of the Speedy Quick Dry collection and was impossible to get hold of, I am very disappointed that I still don’t own this gorgeous fresh green spring shade, maybe some day I will :).



Finally Ciates’s ‘Spinning Teacup’ is also a pretty pastel polish that I have featured in other posts, but I thought I’d mention it again, it’s a beautiful vintage lilac shade that suits it’s name perfectly, I can’t wait to own it.



Thank you huni for providing me with such an adorable swatch

Thanks for reading Beauties, I hope you all enjoyed this post. Are there any pretty pastel polishes that I’ve missed out? Which are your favourite shades for spring?.

Overcast Autumn Oxblood’s

Hi Beauties

I’m in the mood to post today, since winter is on it’s way, or for some parts of the country it’s already here, I thought I’d post about one of fall 2014’s biggest nail polish trends, ox blood nails. A deep ox blood manicure
will always wins place in my good books, so here are a few of my fave ox blood polishes.

The first Is ‘Boredoux’ by Essie, it’s a deep red tone, it’s defiantly one of my faves, it’s not so dark that it looks black, I love the fact that the berry red undertone can still be seen on the nail.

IMG_3238.JPG

The second polish to feature in this post I’d China Glaze’s ‘Call Of The Wild, compared to Essie’s ‘Boredoux’ ‘Call Of The Wild’ is a lot lighter in shade, in my opinion it has more of a brown undertone and would make the perfect autumn manicure.

IMG_3238-0.JPG

The next polish Is ‘China Town’ from Nars, now I’ve never tried a Nars polish so I’m afraid I cannot comment on the quality of the polish itself, but the colour is stunning it’s more of a berry red tone as opposed to an oxblood shade but never the less it is still a very pretty color.

IMG_3239.JPG

L’oreal’s ‘Haute Couture Red’ looks to be a beautiful copper toned oxblood shade, however in the past I have had polishes from L’oreal and let’s just say the formula it’s exactly the best, in my experiences they were gloppy or streaky and took a very long time to dry. Don’t get my wrong I adore the colour of this polish it is truly a stunning fall shade, it’s just a pity about the formula.

IMG_3240.JPG

As many of you know Revlon’s ‘Vixen’ has featured in quite a few of my posts , and it’s about to feature In another. I have been lusting after ‘Vixen’ for the longest time but can never get hold of it, it’s always sold out, which is very disappointing it is such a beautiful almost plum based oxblood shade. In my books it’s a definite must have for any nail polish addict and when I finally do manage to purchase it, ‘Vixen’ will earn it’s rightful place in my collection.

IMG_3241.JPG

Zoya’s ‘Sam’ is a very pretty wine toned oxblood shade, it looks a lot darker on the nails than it appears I’m the bottle, which for some people be a good thing but for me it’s a negative because I adore the shade as it is in the bottle it’s beautifully unique. But regardless of the difference, ‘Sam’ is still a very beautiful colour on or off the nails.

IMG_3243.JPG

And finally, ‘Flirt’ by Sally Hansen is a very like Revlon’s ‘Vixen’ in the sense that it is a plum based oxblood shade as apprised to a red or black based shade. In my opinion this colour would look stunning at a Halloween party or even as a more Christmassy manicure colour, with some silver or gold accents to really make it pop. I think this is another polish for my ever growing collection.

I hope you enjoyed reading this post beauties, they’ll be a more coming this way within the next couple of days, but until next time,

Fantastic For Fall

Hi Beauties

I hope your all feeling a lot better than I am seen as I’m I’ll again :(. It’s getting colder here in the uk that can only mean one thing it’s fall again, yay my fave time of year. 🙂

Not only because it’s perfect sweater weather but also because there are done amazing autumn nail polish colours, so here are some of my faves.

The first is Butter London’s ‘Queen Vic’ it’s a beautiful raspberry red-y pink toned colour, which would look good as a dark nail without going too over broad.

IMG_3072.JPG

The second deep berry red autumn shade is Essie’s ‘Carry On’ unlike the cult classic ‘Wicked’ which is a more berry red toned colour, ‘Carry On’ has a stunning purple base which in some lights makes it look black and in others you can see that stunning deep purple undertone.

IMG_3073.JPG

The third is a much more affordable option, it’s MUA’s ‘Orchid’ which is part of their new fall collection, it’s a beautiful shade that lies perfectly between purple and pink, it’s the perfect shade for the summer to fall transition.

IMG_3074.JPG

‘Release’ from China Glaze is another purple based fall tone, but this polish has more of a grey undertone which makes it more a neutral colour but never the less it still makes a very striking manicure.

IMG_3075.JPG

The next two polishes are again very affordable and are both muted neutral shades from MUA, ‘Bullet’ is a concrete grey shade with a very pretty greenish undertone, where as ‘Mud Pie’ is a much more muted light brown shade, in my opinion they are both perfect for an autumn mani without being too over powering.

IMG_3077.JPG

IMG_3076.JPG

Now as many of you may know Revlon is by far my favourite nail polish brand, the next two polishes are two beautiful jewel toned shades that are perfect for fall. ‘Vixen’ is a beautiful deep cherry red, where as ‘Rainforest’ (my fave polish of all time) is a beautiful forest green shade with flecks of gold micro glitter. Although these two polishes are completely different shades they still make stunning fall manicure colours.

IMG_3078.JPG

IMG_3079.JPG

Another fall fave from Essie is called ‘Berry Naughty’ not only do I think the name is super cute it’s also a beautiful berry red tone, it’s not so dark that it looks black yet again it can’t really be considered a true red. It has the perfect balance of both of these qualities and in my opinion is simply perfect.

IMG_3080.JPG

Finally Essie’s ‘Armed And Ready’ is a very unique shade, it’s a brown-y green shade with flecks of gold and red micro glitter, I adore this colour and it’s defiantly one that’ll be on my nails this fall and maybe even into winter.

Thanks for readings beauties, until next time…

Essie: Glamours Greys

Hi Beauties,

Now that the seasons are changing and it’s getting cooler, here in the UK it is at least, it’s time to wave goodbye to bright summery colours, so I thought I’d focus more on wintery shades such as greys, deep reds and blues.

I’ve decided to blog about my favourite grey polishes from none other then Essie.

The first is Essie’s ‘Chinchilly’ not only does it have a name that brings to mind an adorable furry rodent, but it is also a beautiful brown based grey that will be perfect for transitioning from autumn to winter.

IMG_2962.JPG

The second is ‘Smokin Hot’ which is a very deep toned grey, in my opinion it is not only perfect for a darker nail where black is a little too dark, this pretty polish also fits the bitter winter weather perfectly.

IMG_2963.JPG

‘Master Plan’ is a classic light grey polish, I’d wear this shade of grey no matter what the season, I love this polish it’s a definite must have for any polish lover.

IMG_2964.JPG

‘Cashmere Bathrobe’ is a cult classic and it has it’s place in any worthy Essie nail polish collection, this grey shade has a deep green undertone to it which makes it a beautifully unique colour, it’s perfect for that wintery mani.

IMG_2965.JPG

And finally ‘Cocktail Bling’ is a sky blue based grey which makes it again very unique but unlike ‘Cashmere Bathrobe’ this polish is one that I would wear all all year round as it has the perfect balance between grey and blue.

IMG_2966.JPG

I hoped you all enjoyed this post, and thanks so much for all of the locket comments and the countless likes so far on both of my blogs it means so so much to me. I love you all.

Gorgeous Greens

Hi Beauties

I hope you are all well, unlike me I’ve been tired and in pain for the past few days so I thought I’d take it easy today seen as I’m working all weekend again starting tomorrow,

In order to pep me up a little I thought I’d post about some of my favourite green polishes,

The first is Revlon’s ‘Rain Forest’ I know I’ve mentioned this one in posts before but it really is my at time favourite polish. It has a green base with stunning gold and metallic flecks of micro glitter which together make this polish look Devine, when I wear it I can’t stop looking at my nails 🙂

IMG_2840.JPG

The second is ‘Last Chance’ from Sinful Colors which to me although it’s a lovely colour it is a very basic colour block green which would look lovely in autumn.

IMG_2841.JPG

The third polish to feature in this post Is another by Sinful Colors, ‘San Francisco’ is a much lighter more shimmery shade than ‘Last Change’ because of this it is more of a spring green not an autumn one, this is defiantly a polish I’d want to add to my collection in 2015.

IMG_2842.JPG

‘Emerald Sparkle’ from China Glaze is very similar to Revlon’s ‘Rain Forest’, they both have a beautiful green base with metallic micro glitters, although ‘Emerald Sparkle’ is a lighter shade which makes it an all year round colour, in my opinion it just doesn’t have that same sunning mesmerising look that ‘Rain Forest’ does.

IMG_2843.JPG

The fifth polish is ‘Going Incognito’ by the o so famous Essie, it’s more of a grey based green which gives it a spring time look, it’s still a very pretty colour even though it’s not one I’d wear all year round.

IMG_2844.JPG

Essie’s ‘Stylenomics’ is another fave of mine when it comes to green polish, it is a very deep almost black green which in my opinion makes this shade perfect for the winter months.

IMG_2845.JPG

‘Flat Iron Green’ from NYC is a very rich racing style green and has become a new fave of mine to wear on more casual days.

IMG_2846.JPG

And finally a lighter shade of green is Revlon’s ‘Jaded Night’ it has more of a blue undertone which gives it a uniquely beautiful finish.

IMG_2847.JPG

Thank you beauties for taking the time to have a read through this post, which are your favourite green polish shades? And which brand are they by?

Ravishing Rose Golds

Hi Beauties

I just got back from the gym and I’m feeling kinda down, I weighed in and let’s just say I weigh a lot more than what I thought I did :(.

I thought I’d cheer myself up by post my top eight rose gold polishes. ( I’m picky when it comes to rose gold).

The first polish is Essie’s ‘Buy Me A Cameo’ it’s a lovely colour but to me it’s more silver-y as opposed to te more classic pink rose gold undertone, none the less it is still a beautiful colour.

IMG_2606.JPG

The second is ‘Rage’ from Orly, which is more pink in tone than ‘Buy Me A Cameo’ but in my opinion it’s still too gold to be classed as a rose gold polish.

IMG_2607.JPG

The third is the first Sinful Colors polish I owned, ‘Mama San’ has a stunning pink undertone that let’s the metallic gold shin through beautifully. ‘Mama San’ is a definite go to polish for me.

IMG_2608.JPG

Zoya’s ‘Faye’ is such a stunning colour, it has the perfect balance of pink and gold which gives a beautifully eye catching colour.

IMG_2609.JPG

Maybellines’s ‘Rose Chic’ is a beautiful effects polish, it has a rose gold base with flecks of silver glitter, it looks amazing, I’ve never wanted a nail effects polish so much.

IMG_2610.JPG

The sixth rose gold polish to make it on to my list Is ‘Champers’ by Butter London, to my it seems to be a pretty gold colour with just a hint of pink, perfect.

IMG_2611.JPG

‘Gold Roses’ from Sally Hansen is a more orang-y toned rose gold that still looks beautiful as a summer mani.

IMG_2612.JPG

And lastly Max Factors ‘Sunny Pink’ has a very bold pink undertone, but in the right light hints of gold shin though , making this polish perfect for that casual rose gold mani.

IMG_2613.JPG

Are there any Rose gold polishes I’ve missed? Please comment below and tell me what they are I love hearing about what my lovely followers like.

Essie Purples

Hi Beauties

I thought I’d share some of my fave purple polishes from Essie, enjoy! 🙂

The first polish is a beautiful dark lilac shed called ‘Play Date’ it has quite a noticeable blue undertone which makes this polish perfect for that summer to autumn transition.

IMG_2562.JPG

The sexing is a polish called ‘Sexy Divide’ which is a very deep purple that it almost looks dark blue, but in the sunlight it glints and sparkles the most most beautiful deep purple shade.

IMG_2563.JPG

‘Underwear’ is another lilac shade, but this one had a more pink undertone making it the perfect manicure to finish off the perfect summer.

IMG_2564.JPG

‘Carry On’ is a more deep berry red based purple, in my opinion it’s defiantly a reason for winter to come.

IMG_2565.JPG

The finale two polishes, ‘Under The Twilight’ and ‘Lilacism’ are both beautiful toned purples, although ‘Lilacism’ is a brighter lilac shade they both have grey undertones which makes them both the perfect fall shade of purple.

IMG_2567.JPG

IMG_2566.JPG

So I hope you enjoyed my favourite purples from Essie, from reading back over this post I think I’m subconsciously getting ready for the colder months, starting with my manicure, 🙂

Love, Hugs And Glossy Kisses.
