Picture Polish 2014 Collaborations: Forget Me Not, Sizzle, Fools Gold and Unicorn - Swatches and Review

Hey everyone! As promised I have four of the new Picture Polish collaborations for you today, including two from my friends Sammy (The Nailasaurus), and Allie (Brit Nails). These are my first ever Picture Polishes and I'm really really impressed, I can definitely see why it has such a good reputation as a company. All of these polishes are good quality, dry quickly and look great, what more could you want?

Barry M - Autumn/Winter 2014 'Tribal' Gellies Collection Review and Swatches

Hey everyone! Today I have a long-overdue review of the six gorgeous new gellies from Barry M for Autumn 2014. I've heard this described as the 'Tribal' collection and an email from Barry M said the same thing, I don't know if that's an official term for the collection but I think it suits it. It also suits just being an autumn collection, as the colours are so perfectly autumnal. I've already done quite a bit of nail art with these which will be coming up soon, and I'm sure I'll be doing plenty more designs!

Picture Polish - Sizzle by Cosmetic Sanctuary Nail Art

Hey everyone! Today I have some nail art for you using one of Picture Polish's recent collaboration polishes: Sizzle* by Cosmetic Sanctuary. Would you believe this is the first ever Polish Shade on my blog? It's not the first to touch my nails, as I've just swatched four of the new releases from Picture Polish (review coming this weekend) and I used Unicorn* (Brit Nails collaboration shade) first. Nevertheless, as soon as I tried this polish I knew I had to do some nail art with it, it's a brilliant neon but also glittery, what else could you want?! I'll have my full review of it for you this weekend, but for now let me show you the nail art!

Tutorial Tuesday: Polka Dot Owls for Divine Caroline

Hey everyone! I have a brand new tutorial for you over at Divine Caroline today which you can see HERE. My obsession with owls and polka dots continues as you can see, but this time it's a little different because I haven't got a nude background, which I usually seem to have when owls are involved. I really love how these turned out and I hope you like trying them out yourselves!


Don't forget to check out the steps HERE

Review Week, Day 7: Illamasqua Once Collection - Melange Swatch

Hey everyone! Here is the third and final post, review week has reached its end, and it's reached its end with one of the most beautiful polishes I've seen in a while: Melange* from the Once collection by Illamasqua. This is my first ever Illamasqua polish and I couldn't be more impressed. The Once collection is all about vintage, and it definitely shows in this polish. It's a hard polish to explain, because there's so much going on in it, but I dont need to explain it, because you can see it right here! 

Review Week, Day 6: Nails Inc Festival Collection

Hey everyone! Two posts down, one to go. I'm feeling a bit more productive now, even if it is nearly 2am and I still have a tutorial to do and edit before I go to sleep... Anyway! No more complaining, someone slap me if I complain again, I love this blog and I'm just very tired and moany this week, ignore me! This next post for Day 6 is the Nails inc. Festival collection, which consists of two glitters and two creme nail polishes. I'm a bit late to the party with these, especially as festival season is over now, but that doesn't take away from how fun and great these polishes are, and I couldn't resist still showing you them.
