Emily de Molly Black Forest

Hey everyone! You may remember from last week, a little series has begun called the ‘A-Z Series’. This is between myself and a lovely group of girls who I will list at the end of the post! The idea is that on the day we post, we choose a polish with a name that begins with the corresponding letter for that week. This week is ‘B’, so I have chosen Emily de Molly Black Forest! :)

This isn’t an untried for me, but it’s kind of tricky to photograph  and last time I wore it I applied it badly so I haven’t posted about it before. It’s a gorgeous polish though and really ‘me’! :)

Enchanted Polish March 2014

Hey lovelies! :) I’m posting a little late tonight as I have the cold from hell and I’m feeling sorry for myself, lol. Hope you’re all feeling well! Today I’m posting about Enchanted Polish March 2014. I know I’ve posted these the wrong way round, but I tried EP April 2014 first because that was my favourite of the two, and honestly I was not keen on March 2014 from what I saw in the bottle. I’m not a big fan of the paler yellowy, slightly insipid greens, and I didn’t expect much from it.

Wow was I surprised! :)

OPI Muppets World Tour

Hello! :) The latest collection from OPI is out, and I’ve surprised myself by liking a lot of them! Normally I’m not that fussed by their Soft Shades collections, but Soft Shades 2014 aka OPI Muppets Most Wanted has quite a few unique and pretty polishes in it, rather than just the standard sheer pinks and nudes. After my buying ban of the last few months, I treated myself to three, the first of which I want to show you today: Muppets World Tour. It’s VERY unique, I’ve never seen anything like it!

Tanya Burr Little Duck Lips and Nails

Hey everyone! I don’t know about you, but I’m a bit of a fan of relaxing and watching YouTuber vlogs and other videos after work with a cuppa. On of my all-time favourite YouTubers has always been Tanya Burr, and of course when she released her #TanyaBurrLipsandNails collaboration with Eye Candy, being the avid nail polish collector I am, I had to try at least one! When they finally made their way to my local Superdrug (Bournemouth Superdrug were a week late from the launch…!), I ended up choosing a very ‘me’ shade; Little Duck.

Enchanted Polish April 2014

Hey everyone! So, many of us received our Enchanted Polish Mystery polishes this week, so I thought I’d show you April – which Andy chose from my rather large ‘to blog’ pile for this week! What Chelsea is currently doing seems to be working great – I am a big fan of this system because as long as you check in on time, nobody misses out. Basically the process is: you are sent an email a good week in advance with details of when the pre-order goes live, including a time-scale for how long it will be available. On the day and at the correct time, you select the polish and purchase it, with no cart-jacking issues and no site problems. 3-4 weeks later, you have your polish! I love that it’s now so hassle-free when for a good 1-2 years it’s been a nightmare.

Anyway, onto the polish. Like the others, this was a mystery polish meaning you are buying blind. As someone with very few colour-preferences when it comes to nail polish, I’m a big fan, although I know some people aren’t. This one is really pretty though, and I haven’t yet seen anyone say they don’t like it.

Revlon Colorburst Lacquer Balm Demure

Hey my lovelies! I have something a bit different to show you today. I’ve been feeling the urge to share more than just nail polish on here for a while, being that I am female and I wear makeup and use hair and body products every day, I feel like I’m missing on a whole load of my other obsessions hobbies. As far as makeup goes I tend to like to keep my mascara, eyeliner, brows, foundation, powder and bronzer the same – I’ll talk about these soon if this post goes well! I do however love to change up my eyeshadow and lately my lips. I was never a lip product fan really, I always felt that my lips were the one part of my face that seemed to be all one colour and didn’t really need enhancing. However, like with nail polish, I have become a bit of a lip product junkie!! I don’t know how this happened but I currently own around 30 lip products…!

Anyways. I have been really enjoying stick balms for quite some time, Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Honey, Soap & Glory Gloss Sticks in Fuchsia-ristic and Plum Jam, and Seventeen Lip Crayon in Knockout, to name a few. And then this one caught my eye; the packaging suckered me in and before I knew it it was bought and safely in my bag within minutes. I don’t regret it though, I’ve been loving this all week!

Barry M Arabian

Hello! Today presents the inception of the A to Z series! This is a little series that I’ll be doing with Charlie from Pocket Money Polishes, Anna from AnnaBean’s Nails, Sarah from Penny Pinching Polish and Kerrie from Pish Posh and Polish :) what happens is we each choose a nail polish who’s name begins with the letter corresponding to that week – as such, today is A, and I have chosen Barry M Arabian, which is from the Barry M Aquarium Collection  <—- click to see my reviews on other polishes in the collection! :D

Hope that makes sense because my brain is well and truly all over the place today! I realised while trying to choose an ‘A’ polish, I don’t have a huge amount that begin with ‘a’ compared to some other letters – let me know some ideas!

OPI Girls Love Diamonds

Hey everyone! You may or may not know that when I moved to Bournemouth recently I also made an IRL friend, namely Charlie of Pocket Money Polishes! :) We have formed a little habit of swapping polishes so the other can try out some new ones without having to splash out, which is so awesome :D Charlie’s got a fab collection of OPIs if you didn’t know!

Anyway today I am using a lovely polish which she’s kindly lent to me, called ‘Girls Love Diamonds’. It’s from the new OPI Major League Baseball -MLB- Collection (also known as the OPI Fashion Plate Collection). I have to tell you I have’t got a first clue about baseball… the closest I’ve come to a baseball game is playing rounders on the school field! (Those were the days…!) I have to say I’m not terribly fussed by the collection because the majority is reds and blues, but this one is worth picking up!

Barry M Rose Hip Gelly

Hey ladies! I have a really pretty pink to show you today (I told you I was going to give pink some more lovin’!) in the form of a new Gelly polish :) As you probably know if you’ve been reading my blog for a while, I absolutely adore the Barry M Gelly range :)

I often find that pale pastel pinks can look chalky and clashy against my skin and this is the first one I’ve tried that doesn’t look terrible on me! It has a nice jellyish finish which I think really helps it to look flattering :)

Emily de Molly Violet Days

Hey everyone! I have a discontinued polish to show you all today. Since I promised to show you what I put on top of my Revlon Parfumerie Ginger Melon mani, I thought I’d make a post out of it! Polishes like this one pop up on blogsales or sales groups on Facebook from time to time so if you love it keep an eye out. I’m not really sure whether this is HTF – when I bought it (from a sales group) I was a bit obsessed with Emily de Molly at the time so I didn’t even search for swatches at the time, I went a bit crazy hehe :)

I don’t usually pair purple and pink together but something drew me to this pairing :)
