I love a bit of novelty, and I’m always interested in something if it’s personalised or has my name on! Although (obviously) not custom made for me, this nail polish from Rimmel caught my eye last week and I had to buy it. I also have the As You Want Victoria lipstick from Rimmel for the same reasons… It’s called ‘Mind The Gap, Victoria’, which seems to be part of a line of nail polishes named after London Tube stations. But because it’s got my name in it, I had to treat myself to it! It’s instantly become a favourite…

Whenever I’ve seen beige or nudey coloured nail polish in the shops, I’ve never picked one up. I always thought they looked a bit boring and gross, and brighter shades have always appealed to me much more! But I recently saw my friend Isabelle with nude nails and I really liked it. I think she used the Barry M matte nail paint in nude vanilla. So when I saw a similar shade in Poundland by Maybelline called ‘Porcelain Beige’ I thought I’d give it a whirl.. they’re £4.50 in Superdrug! It’s from the Forever Strong range and it claims to…

I’ve been thinking about what nail polish to use next week when I’m on holiday.. and I think I’ve found a winner! I want something long lasting, as it will have to last the full 7 days (I don’t want to spend my holiday time painting nails!). I spotted these new colours in the Barry M Gelly range and thought they would be perfect. I already have two bolder gelly polishes, but I much prefer these gorgeous pastel shades. They’re not too pale, but have a nice hint of colour, perfect for spring time. They’re hi-shine, although I do find…

Last weekend I was browsing the cosmetics section of Poundland (as usual!) and came across these beauties. I’d not tried L’oreal nail polish before, and as they were in Poundland I thought they might be a bit old and runny so I only bought a couple. I wasn’t sure if I’d like them, but when I got home I instantly regretted not buying them all, because they are amazing! They had a few more colours, and when I went back I picked up a few more, but they were out of stock of a really nice grey one I saw..…

A quick little nail post for you this evening. Last weekend I went out for my friends leaving party as she’s gone to work in Lapland for the season (I know, jealous). So (obviously) the theme of the party was Winter Wonderland Christmassy themed!  I wore a red velvet dress and reindeer ears, and painted my nails with this festive Nails Inc polish. It’s called Noel Street and is Limited Edition, although I got it last year and it’s still for sale. It’s got tiny gold/silvery particles and looks really great for Christmas time. It’s so sparkly and I really…

Another bargain beauty post including NYC! I usually tend to stick to bright or pastel colours for my nails, but now that summers over I’ve started experimenting with darker colours for Autumn. I’ve never tried black nails before, as I always thought they’d be a bit too gothic for me. But I saw this black glittery top coat in Superdrug and decided I’d give it a try!  As a base coat I used Miss Sporty Lasting Colour Nail Fatal Black, which is only £1.99! I didn’t have high hopes for this, as I’d picked the cheapest black I could find…
