Magpie Beauty Pretty In Pink Gel Collection - Review and Swatches

Hey everyone! It's been a while, if you don't follow me on Instagram, that's where you can mainly find me these days. I've completely fallen in love with gel polish, in part thanks to my new role as Brand Partner for Magpie Beauty, so you can find a lot of gel designs on there now too! I'm going to keep my blog for longer reviews such as this one.

As part of my role with Magpie, I was kindly gifted the brand new Pretty In Pink collection* and I wanted to give you an honest review and some swatches of the collection for you to see! If you have any questions please feel free to message me on Instagram and I'll help as much as I can!

There are five polishes in the collection, and (as the name suggests) they are a collection of pinks, with a mixture of cremes, sheers and shimmers.

I have quite ridged nails on my pointer and middle finger at the moment so I applied a coat of Magpie - Give Me Strength to those fingers in all of these swatches, but otherwise these are totally on my natural nails.

Shiny Pumpkins

[AD*]    Happy Halloween-eve! Halloween is one of my favourite holidays of the year (second only to Christmas) because I get to dress up, decorate my house, and also because it presents so many opportunities for nail art! 

This year I was asked by Naio Nails to create some Halloween nail art using their Urban Graffiti gel polishes, and I wanted to try and mix of matte and shiny with this pumpkin design. 

I've been wanting to try a matte gel top coat for ages so I made sure that was one of the polishes I chose for this collaboration, and I was like a kid marvelling when I saw that it doesn't go matte until you put it under the light. Science! (Or not science just magic who knows...). Anyway, read on to find out how I created these nails.
