China Glaze Apocalypse of Colour Collection Halloween 2014 – Review & Swatches

Hello! I know, I know… I’m a bit late with this one but better late than never I think! China Glaze, as per usual, have brought out a fab collection for Halloween. I ended up getting all 5 of the shades from the ‘Apocalypse of Color’ collection, as they all look so interesting!

Halloween is my favourite time of year, I love the so-called ‘dark’ and ‘sinister’ spirits (obviously without the negative connotations!) and so I always enjoy a good bit of Halloween festivity, and the fun ideas that many brands come up with for the occasion. China Glaze have long been one of those brands!

Halloween Nails

Hey there! 🙂 So I realise I am a day late; every year I intend to do a ‘Halloween Nail Art’ post to show you all before Halloween actually occurs, but by nature I am always LATE! So I decided this year, late is better than never (and since it’s the weekend, a lot of you will still have Halloween celebrations to be going to, no?). I am also pretty happy with this year’s offering, so wanted to share with you!

MoYou Nails – Stamping Plates 125 & 132, Persian Turquoise Nail Polish Review

Hello everyone! I was lucky enough to be sent a couple of stamping plates and a ‘special nail polish’ by MoYou Nails to review. First of all, I have a confession to make. I have never even attempted stamping before this review, so not only did this provide me with some inspiration for a blogpost, but also with the opportunity to try stamping out for the first time! Exciting stuff. I feel like this is a sacrilege to be written on a nail blog, but there we go!

Hare Polish For the Love of Lisa

Since I’ve been posting a fair few mainstream nail polishes lately, I felt like it was time to show you all another indie from one of my favourite makers – Hare Polish :). I know this one isn’t exactly season-appropriate, but hey, rules were made to be broken ;). I believe the inspiration behind this nail polish is Lisa Frank, an artist who uses very bright, colourful media in her pieces.

As usual, Nikole (the lady behind Hare Polish) has created a small masterpiece – this nail polish is just stunning.

Barry M A/W 2014 Silk Nail Paints – Swatches and Review

Today I have another few Barry M Nail Paints to show you all. Barry M have been super busy and have brought out a LOT of nail polishes in the last few weeks – today I am showing you the new Autumn Silks / Winter Silks which are: Forest Silk, Orchid Silk and Poppy Silk. The idea of the nail effect is to look like the material silk (which I think it does quite well!).

I have to confess I wasn’t the biggest fan of the first Silks (released earlier this year) which were all pastels – but these three are just gorgeous! I couldn’t decide which one to put first because I love them all a LOT! Because these all dry to a satin-matte finish, I decided to do one shot of them in their ‘natural state’, and one with topcoat (because they look amazing with topcoat!).
