Todays Mani And Thank You :)

HiBeauties 

I’m finally beginning to feel better, I was going to post a picture of myself, but I don’t look as well as I thought I did :).

Today’s mani is Sinful Colors ‘Winter Berry’ which is a purple based brown shade with a silver shimmer to it, it’s super pretty, I just wish I would have used it sooner. I’ve had ‘Winter Berry’ since November last year and this is the first time it’s been opened, as you can probably tell I’m loving grey and brown toned polishes which is  strange for me I’d normally go for red or pink.



A huge thank you to Project Swatch for the stunningly beautiful… Swatches.

Since spring is upon us (most of us) I thought I’d jazz up my mani a little, for this I used I glitter top coat from London Girl.



It’s a lovely polish with both hex and circle shaped glitters, combined with green and sliver micro glitters, it really makes my mani pop.



Please excuse the Shockley horrible nails I’m in the process of growing them out again.

I hope you enjoyed this post Beauties  and thank you so much for all of your lovely ‘get well soon’ messages they really do help.

Today’s mani

Hi Beauties

After much debate I decided to go for ‘Fiji’ which was so disappointing, it’s very very sheer, takes ages to dry and smells terrible, but thanks everyone for the feedback it really means a lot to me.

Today I redid my nails with MUA’s ‘Bright Pink’ after the Sinful Colors mishap, I’m hoping it’s just a bad batch because I really do like the colour. On the other hand ‘Bright Pink’ is very pigmented, opaque in one coat and is very long wearing.

Love it, a big thanks to Sarah for the fantastic pic of one of my fave polishes.

‘Holiday Wishes’ From Sinful Colors

Hi Beauties

As many of you know Revlon has always been my favourite nail polish brand, but for me Revlon is sometimes a little too expensive, polishes start at £6.00 and can sell for as high as £10.00 a bottle. When my budget can’t stretch to Revlon’s prices I can still get my polish fix, from none other than Sinful Colors, they have a fantastic formula, a huge array of shades to choose from and they only retail for £1.99 a bottle and I think you’ll agree that’s an absolute bargain.

Since Christmas is just around the corner Sinful Colors have bought out there ‘Holiday Wishes’ collection, which features stunning blue and gold based polishes that are perfect for the festive season.

‘All About You’ is a beautiful copper based gold glitter that will look amazing, adding sparkle to any outfit. The richer hues of red toned copper make this polish stunning for an evening get together.

IMG_3633.JPG

‘Endless Blue’ is quite a bold cobalt blue shade, that in my opinion has a very casual feel to it, this polish would be perfect to wear when lounging around the house on Boxing Day watching reruns of old movies and blogging or vlogging about what you got for Christmas 2014.

IMG_3634.JPG

‘Ice Blue’ is by far my favourite shade in this collection, it is a deep blue base with flecks of silver micro glitter which remind my of a snowy night sky in Christmas Eve, Devine.

IMG_3635.JPG

‘Ice Dream’ seems to me to be the more casual counterpart to ‘Ice Blue’ it is still blue based with silver glitter but this time the blue is lighter, it reminds me somewhat of melting icicles.

IMG_3636.JPG

‘Cinderella’ is a sky blue, white based shade that is featured in this collection, it is one that I have had for nearly two years so it’s not exactly a new addition to the Sinful Colours range, however I can see why they included it, it’s a stunning shade that in my opinion is a winter must have.

IMG_3637.JPG

‘Gilded’ is a deep blue based shade again with sliver micro glitter, it is not as dark as ‘Ice Blue’ yet not as light as ‘Ice Dream’, it is infact the perfect balance between the two and brings to mind the Christmas classic The Snowman, it just has that kinda feel to it.

IMG_3638.JPG

Finally ”Gold Medal’ is a solid gold shade with somewhat of a metallic shimmer to it, it is in my opinion the most disappointing of this collection, although it is a pretty colour it just doesn’t feel very festive to me.

Bonfire Night Nail Art

Hi Beauties

Now I know not everyone celebrates bonfire night, but here in the UK is a big thing, I love going to firework displays and standing around a huge fire whilst eating burger van burgers, hotdogs and chips, I love seeing the sky light up and the smell of smoke that still lingers in the air the morning after.

Here are a few of my fave bonfire night themed nail art designs for you,

October Nails

Hi Beauties

Well it’s halloween and I’m smart here bored, so I thought I’d blog about the colours I’ve been wearing on my nails for the month of October, here goes…

The first is part of Maybelline’s Mini Colo Rama collection, and is called ‘Black Current Jelly, it’s a very pretty purple-y red shade and is opaque in one coat.

IMG_3500.JPG

Revlon’s ‘Ginger Melon’ is a staple pink polish I find myself coming back to again and again, not only is it a very versatile colour but it smells amazing too.

IMG_3501.JPG

When I first purchased ‘Tokyo Pearl’ from Sinful Colors I was not that impressed by it, it seemed sheer and streaky, but last week I had some time to build up three coats of ‘Tokyo Pearl’ and the results were stunning.

IMG_3502.JPG

Another October purchase from Sinful Colors was ‘Lets Talk’ which is a purple based blue and looks absolutely beautiful on the nails, in the right light it flashes deep purple and memorising blues, it looks simply stunning.

IMG_3503.JPG

My final polish for October is ‘Cayenne’ from Revlon, in the bottle it looks a lot more red than it does on the nail, so as you can imagine I was shocked when my manicure turned out a rather unexpected burnt orange shade, it’s not really a shade is go for, but never the less I leaned to love it anyway.

Thanks for reading Beauties I hoped you enjoyed this post, I can’t wait to write Novembers entry,

Autumn Oranges

Hi Beauties

I’m felting a little bit enter today and I’m back at the gym, yay 🙂

And October is approaching fast approaching and pumpkin orange nails will soon be all the rage.

China Glaze’s ‘Riveting’ is a beautiful burnt orange shade with a bright gold shimmer and the golden flecks of micro glitter finish this polish off perfectly.

IMG_3082.JPG

Revlon’s ‘Orange Blossom’ is part of their new parfumerie range, not only is the colour a striking balance between red and orange it also smells amazing.

IMG_3083.JPG

The next polish is again from Revlon and is called ‘Marmalade’ it’s a very subtle light orange shade which makes it very wearable whilst still giving your mani that pretty meant for fall look, plus it’s name is super cute.

IMG_3084.JPG

Sinful Colors ‘Courtney Orange’ looks like it could be the love child of ‘Riveting’ from China Glaze and Revlon’s ‘Orange Blossom’, it has a deeper more red undertone coupled with a stunning combination of a gold undertone and golden micro glitter, this one is a definite go to halloween polish for me.

IMG_3085.JPG

Rimmel’s ‘Tangerine Queen’ is a very true, bright orange. Not really one that I would have in my collection as it is a little too bright for my taste but it’s perfect for anyone who isn’t afraid to rock a statement mani.

IMG_3086.JPG

Finally ‘Beach Party’ from Models Own is an orange shade to wear with a tan or one that would suit a darker skin tone so that the neon tone can really pop, but I think this polish would still be great as a way to brighten up dull fall months and remind us that summer is never really that far away.

I am now going on an orange nail polish shopping spree oops :-p

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?
