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?.

Todays Mani And Thank You :)


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.

Love, Hugs And Glossy Kisses,

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.


Thanks for reading my lovelies,

Polish In December

Hi Beauties

Now that January is here, I can do a polish in December post. These are the polished I wore throughout the month of December, it was pretty busy for me so there aren’t as many as I would have liked, but here goes…

The first polish was ‘Star Watch’ from Revlon, it’s a magnetic polish with a deep brown based purple undertone to it, the magnetic effect this polish gives is really quite lovely, thank you to rougebeauty for the perfect swatches.


My second polish to adorns nails in December was Rimmel’s ‘Cupcake Pink’it’s quite a sheer baby pink shade with very good lasting power.


‘Full Metal Jacket’ from NYC is one of my all time fave metallic polishes, it’s cheap and has such an amazing shine. A huge thank you to kittynoir for the stunning swatches.


‘Ginger Melon’ from Revlon is another fave of mine, some people might say it’s purely a spring/ summer colour but I wear it on my nails all year round, it’s a very bright orange based pink that smells lovely once it’s dried, although the scent didn’t stay on my nails for as long as it normally does, I dunno why :@, a huge thank you to kickarseredlips for the lovely swatches.


The finale polish I wore in 2014 was another one by Revlon, it’s such a fantastic brand I love love love their formulae, unlike NYC’s ‘Full Metal Jacket’ which has a very subtle rose gold tint to it, ‘Silver Dollar’ is a true silver shade with a pretty shimmer finish, a big thank you to macyxmakeup for the beautiful swatches.

And a massive thank you to all of my Beauties who read and support my blog, you really don’t know what it means to me. I hope you enjoyed this post, they’ll be plenty more for 2015 :).

Today’s Mani…

Hi Beauties

Today’s polish is one I had sitting in my collection for quite sometime, it’s ‘Ocean Breeze’ from Revlon.

‘Ocean Breeze’ is an ocean blue tone that flashes green and silver when the light hits it from specific angles and yes it is scented, admittedly it smells very nice but it doesn’t remind me of the sea, the smell also fades quite quickly unlike the scented polished from Revlon’s Parfumerie collection which last in your nails for days.

The polish in the bottle, (pic courtesy of Confident Beauty

IMG_4007.JPG) looks slightly darker in tone then if appears on the nails, but after two coats I found this polish was opaque and super pretty.

With the flash, the sliver undertones can be seen a lot clearer


Without the flash, a beautiful deep ocean blue.


Even though this polish is blue based, which I tend to steer clear of ‘Ocean Breeze’ goes well with my skin tone, it doesn’t make look too washed out. This polish is a very versatile colour for me and I’m wearing it to my job interview, wish me luck Beauties.
