Revlon - China flower

Hi! Happy Friday! Today I'm going to be practising some nail art stuff I've been wanting to try for a while but haven't had time for! I hope you have a fab Friday too!

Today's polish is this pretty Revlon perfumerie polish which I was lucky enough to track down when one of the pound shops had them in stock!


This one is called 'China flower' and it's an orangey, pinky red which is so pretty and makes me want to do daisy nail art! It applies well and dries quickly and also has a very strong scent when it's dry. The scent lasts ages too!


Here's a close up so you can see how pretty and shiny it is!

Models own chrome stamping mani!

Hi! Today is pretty much a silent post as it's very photo heavy! I reviewed a polish from the new chrome collection by www.modelsownit.com the other day and promised to show you how fab they are at stamping so here is the proof!

To do this I used various chrome polishes to do an ombre effect stamping mani. I used stamping plates plates, a scraper and a stamper from www.moyou.co.uk and I finished with top coat.

Essie 'Cashmere bathrobe'

Hi! Today I'm going to be mainly drinking coffee and writing, hopefully I'll be able to fit in some time to eat jelly tots as well ;) have a great day!

Today I have a gorgeous essie polish to show you! This is called 'Cashmere bathrobe' and it's a beautiful dark grey with very fine glitter running through it so it's work appropriate and night out appropriate!


I don't own many essie polishes, only around ten but they're amazing so I am slowly building up my collection! The brush and formula mean it's easy to apply and you don't need to do much, if any, clean up. They dry quickly and have a shiny finish that is super glossy with one coat of top coat. also essie have a huge range of colours, effects and finishes so there's something for every occasion! You can see them all at www.essie.co.uk

W7 'Lilac'

Disclaimer; this polish was sent to me to review, please see my 'disclaimer' page for more info.

Hi! today I'm going to give myself an intensive manicure and catch up on some TV I missed while I was away last week! I hope you have a great day too!

Today I'm going to show you a pretty polish by W7 called 'Lilac'.


To do this mani I used two colour coats and top coat.


This polish is really nice, It's not a typical pale lilac but it is a gorgeous dusty purple which is suitable for work and parties! It applies really well and dries fast like we expect from W7. Their polishes are honestly amazing! In the last week I've bought loads more W7 polishes to add to my collection so I'll be back soon with them! In the meantime you can see their full range at www.w7cosmetics.co.uk

Barry M review - Bright purple

Disclaimer; this polish was sent to me to review, please see my 'Disclaimer' page for more info.

Hi! I'd say 'Happy Monday' but I'm not sure such a thing exists ;)

I was recently sent a gorgeous Barry M polish from www.producttesting.com a beauty product testing  company! I'm really happy to be working with them and I'm so excited I was sent a Barry M polish!


The polish I was sent is called 'Bright purple'.


For this mani I used a base coat, two colour coats and a top coat.


I love Barry M polishes, I'm currently looking forward to my birthday so I can get the new collection of speedy polishes they've released and last year I got their aquarium collection to add to my Barry M stash and this polish doesn't disappoint. It has that fab formula we all expect from Barry M and which most of their polishes have, it's fluid and applies smoothly but isn't so fluid it floods the cuticles and side walls. It also dries quickly and to a high shine finish.


I've taken some photos in various lights to try and show you how fab this looks!


It's such a gorgeous bright colour and I have loads of ideas of how to use it in nail art including trying it for stamping and stamping over it using my silver and gold Barry M foil polishes!


I'm also going to attempt some Barney the dinosaur nail art using it as a base soon!
