Hello! Today I have a quick China Glaze swatch to share with you. I recently got my hands on a couple of their older neon polishes - thank you to Timea (@rampartnails). They have been sat in my swatch pile for a few weeks now, and with the end of Summer is approaching I decided I needed to wear at least one. I went for 'Shocking Pink'. Read on for my swatch and more info!

Hello! Today I have a Painted Polish crelly to share with you. Painted Polish is one of those brands that I've been following for ages, but for some reason never got round to trying. With their recent launch over at UK stockist Rainbow Connection, I decided to finally pick up a bottle. I went for 'Rainbow Reef'. Read on for my swatch and more info!

Hi lovelies! Today I have my unboxing of August's MeeBox for you. If you missed my posts for last months 'Rio' box, you can see my unboxing here, swatches here, and nail art look here. This months box was a special one, as it is MeeBox's first birthday! The theme was 'Boho', and we were told to expect the unexpected, and also promised a little extra birthday treat.

Hello lovelies! Today I have an exciting polish to share with you. Picture Polish recently released new shades, several of which are collaborations. One is a collaboration with Rainbow Connection, and is a bright blue named 'Alice'. Anyone who knows me will know I'm obsessed with Alice in Wonderland at the moment, so this had to be mine!

Hello lovelies! Today I'm off to Cadbury World with my boyfriend for his birthday (yum!), and of course I had to do some inspired nails to match. I wasn't entirely sure what to do, so started with a deep purple base and went from there. This is what I came up with. Read on for more info and to see how I did it!

Hello! Today I have a quick Pretty Serious Cosmetics swatch to share with you. They have recently released a limited duo inspired by the Pantone colours of the year for 2016 - 'Can't Take The Sky' (periwinkle), and 'Use The Quartz, Lone Starr!' (pale pink). Unfortunately I didn't think that the pink would suit me, so have only purchased 'Can't Take The Sky' for now. Read on for my swatch and more info!

Hello! Today I have another Models Own hypergel polish to show you. When I wore 'Lilac Sheen' recently (post here), I remembered how much I loved the brand. My little brother got me a little haul of their polishes for Christmas. Somehow I haven't worn them all yet, so I picked out 'Summer Solstice' to try. Read on for my swatch and more info!

Hello! Today I have a quick swatch of Bear Pawlish 'Scar' to show you. It was part of the November 2015 Paint The Rainbow box, which I didn't manage to get at the time. The remaining PTR boxes (up until May's) have now been split up, with all proceeds going to charity. As soon as I could I made an order and grabbed 'Scar' - my first Bear Pawlish! Read on for my swatch and more info.

*Press Sample*Helloo! Today I have a fun thermal polish from Opulent Essences called 'In The Mood' to show you. Apart from quickly testing a clear to black topcoat, this is actually the first thermal I've worn properly. I'm not sure how that's the case as I've always loved the idea.

Hello lovelies! Today I have a quick unboxing of my July Love Me Beauty box for you. I had an active subscription last year, but chose to pause it after several months. I had some remaining credits to spend, so when I saw OPI polishes popping up in July's boxes, I reactivated my subscription and grabbed them all! Read on for more info!

Hello! Today I have a quick mainstream swatch for you. My swatch pile is so massive that I feel some of my older polishes are becoming a bit unloved, so recently I've been pulling some of them out to wear. This time I went for Barry M 'Turbo Charged' from last Summer's speedy quick dry collection. Read on for my swatch and more info!
