GOSH Frosted Purple

Hey chickas! A while back I picked up two GOSH Frosted Sand Look polishes… and promptly forgot about them. I’ve worn this one once already and adored it, so when I decided last night that I needed something glittery but not too OTT for my interview today, this sprung to mind.

The cap on these is sparkly and slightly textured too… it’s the little things! It promises a “glittery matt finish” – which is certainly accurate! You know what I’m like with textured polishes… there aren’t enough of ’em in this world…!!! I can’t get enough!

Jacava London Oxford Street

Press Sample

Hello lovelies! Today I have another pretty nail varnish from Jacava London. As I said in my review of Regent Street, my favourite thing about this brand is their great ethical values. They are 8-Free, which means they are free from  DBP, Camphor, Formaldehyde, Toluene, Formaldehyde Resin/Tosylamide, Parabens, Phthalates and Animal Ingredients. They are also cruelty-free and vegan… there’s no blotting that copybook! I do love when a brand takes the initiative to forge forwards with good ethics, it makes a nice change from all the ones that just do it for compliance.

Scofflaw Cloud Cuckoo Land

Hey everyone! Hope you’re all well :).

Today I have a nice palate cleanser polish, that happens to also be an indie! Often I tend to go for the WOW factor with indies, or the total glitter bombs… but sometimes it’s nice to have something that’s soft and cute, with a smattering of glitter that’s tasteful and not so in-your-face. This polish is wow, but in a softer more subtle way than a lot of holo-packed, glitter-packed polishes!

I feel like this nail varnish is a great way to wear glitter to work, for more professional jobs. And I know I’ve mentioned this before but I just LOVE the Scofflaw logo design. It really attracts me.

Press Sample

Hello everyone!! So a really exciting package came through the post this morning from Rimmel 😀 it contained the new Sweetie Crush collection and the new Rita Ora collection (more on that one soon!) and this lovely little set of biscuits – a big smile was painted on my face and I got right to work!

I hadn’t heard much about the Rimmel Sweetie Crush collection before today, but I can tell you that it’s a collection of 5 gorgeous sweetie-inspired textured polishes, all in lovely Spring/Summer shades! I have to say I love the packaging too… the cute retro sweet-shop awning on the caps is just adorable!

Jacava London Regent Street

Press Sample

Hey everyone! 🙂 Jacava London is a brand that I really love, I think they tend to fall slightly below the radar at the moment as they’re still a fairly new brand, but they are brilliant. Their colours are all really luxurious and beautiful, as are their bottles, which are printed in 22 carat gold! My favourite thing about them though is that they are cruelty-free, vegan, and 8-free (free from DBP, Camphor, Formaldehyde, Toluene, Formaldehyde Resin/Tosylamide, Parabens, Phthalates and Animal Ingredients). They are passionate about providing a safe nail polish that doesn’t harm furries and that is something that’s very close to my heart.

At the beginning of the New Year, Jacava released a massive 2014 collection, and I was asked to review a couple. Of course I leapt at the opportunity!
