OPI Hello Kitty 'Look At My Bow!' & 'Super Cute In Pink'

Hello! Today I have swatches of two polishes from the OPI Hello Kitty Collection. I managed to pick these up in Cosmoprof when I was in America (mainstream U.S. haul here). A couple of others that I had my eye on unfortunately weren't in stock at the time. The two I picked up were 'Look At My Bow!' and 'Super Cute In Pink'. Read on for full swatches and more info!

February MeeBox - Red Carpet

Hello lovelies! It's time for another MeeBox unboxing (see last months here). This months theme was 'Red Carpet' to go along with the awards season. If the glamorous theme wasn't enough, 5 lucky subscribers also won a Chanel nail polish (rumoured to be sold out at department stores across London). I loved the added excitement to this box, and I was lucky enough to win! Read on for a closer look at everything inside, including my bonus Chanel polish!

February Nailbox - Retro

Hi lovelies! I'm back with another nailbox unboxing for you (see last months box here). This month nailbox didn't announce their theme as usual so I had no idea what to expect. It did say on their website that the box was 'a cracker', but nothing else. Upon opening my box I was greeted by the super colourful card stating a retro-theme. Read on for a closer look at what was inside!

OPI 'Pineapples Have Peelings Too'

Hello everyone! Today I have a bit of a controversial polish to share with you - OPI's 'Pineapples Have Peelings Too'. This came out in the Spring 2015 Hawaii Collection and I have to admit, it didn't go down well. The majority of people didn't appreciate it at all but for some reason I loved the idea. I finally picked it up on holiday over Christmas and it featured in my mainstream US haul here. Read on to find out if I love or hate it now I've had it on my nails!

Products I've Used Up and/or Repurchased

Helloo! Today I have something a bit different for you. My first ever blog post was about my hand and nail care essentials (see here). I felt like doing a similar post but thought products I'd actually finished would be much more useful, as our final opinions tend to be more accurate than first impressions. Here's a quick look at some of the products I've either used up or repurchased back ups of. Read on to find out more!

Dr Martens Inspired Daisies

Helloo! Today I have some nail art to share with you. While wearing Colors By Llarowe's 'Young Turks' (swatched/reviewed here), the colour reminded me of a pair of Dr Martens boots I had when I was younger. They were bright blue and covered in white and yellow daisies. I decided to recreate a similar pattern on my nails using Young Turks as my base - here is the finished look. Read on to find out more!

Valentines Polish Swap - Colors By Llarowe 'Young Turks'

Hello lovelies! I recently participated in a Valentines polish swap through a nail polish group over on Facebook. The idea of the swap was to try a polish from a 'new to us' brand. We each compiled a list of untried indie brands along with our likes and dislikes to be sent to our secret swap partner (our 'Varnish Valentine').
The polish I was lucky enough to receive was the gorgeous Colors By Llarowe (CBL) 'Young Turks'. Read on to see my swatch pictures!

Fair Maiden Polish 'Hap-pea Birthday!'

Hi lovelies! As some of you may know, it was my birthday last month (28th January). Among the presents from my boyfriend was Fair Maiden Polish's 'Hap-pea Birthday!'. I was really excited as it is literally a birthday polish - you couldn't get anything more appropriate for the occasion. I didn't manage to get it onto my nails on the day, so decided to save it for today as it's my Daddy's birthday! As always, read on to find out more!

Twinsie Tuesday - Valentines Pond Mani

Hi lovelies! As you can probably guess from the title, today's post is a twin mani! Me and the lovely Kirsty from FairyTales Nails (check out her blog here!) have been wanting to do matching twin nails for a while, and both wanted to do a pond mani. We thought a Valentines theme with stamped hearts between the layers would be super cute! Here are our final designs. Read on to find out more!

Opulent Essences - Swatches & Review

Hello lovelies! Today I have a long overdue post for you. Shortly before my holiday in December I received amazing nail mail from UK indie Opulent Essences. After falling in love with their hand and nail scrub (post here) I had to purchase more. I also decided to finally try a couple of their polishes. Read on for full swatches and more info!
