Hare Polish Party Palace

Hey chickas! Not long after I started getting into indie polishes, about a year ago or so, I really really got into Hare Polishes. I’m not really sure whether it’s just the wonderful polish creations or the branding or both, but if you asked me to choose one indie brand to use for the rest of my life, it’d be Hare for sure. Don’t get me wrong, I love other brands a LOT, there’s just something about HP that sucks me in with every new collection.

I have another one from the Last Queen of France collection today. This one isn’t for the faint hearted – you WILL  be seen in this colour!! The collection is loosely based around Marie Antoinette. As I said in my review of ‘Let Them Eat…What?’, I don’t honestly know much about her, but I do LOVE the collection so… had to buy! This is another one I’ve had for nearly a year – I’ve worn it 2-3 times but haven’t yet blogged about it! Sacrilege!

Enchanted Polish January 2014 Mystery

Hello everyone! I have quite a fancy nail varnish for you today. If you haven’t heard of Enchanted Polish before (where have you been?!?!) they are one of the most sought-after indie brands of today. Drama aside, I do think that EP create really gorgeous lacquers so I don’t mind spending a little extra (but not too much!!) on these.

Because there were a lot of issues to do with restocks, Chelsea (the creator behind the name) started off the year with doing a pre-order, instead of a restock. This seems to have worked much better so I really hope she continues with this. No stress! Anyway, Jan 2014 was a ‘mystery’ polish – we were buying blind. I don’t really have strong feelings on many colours so with this I felt relatively safe, although I know others might not be so keen on the idea. Apparently this is the year of mysteries for EP though so it will probably carry on in this vein!

Hare Polish Test Your Love!

Hello everyone! I have another polish from my one true indie love a nice indie brand called Hare! ‘Test Your Love!’ is from the Fall 2013 Coin Operation Collection. This collection has the coolest inspiration behind it – “the world of antique, coin-operated arcade and carnival games of yesteryear” in Nikole’s (the creator) own words. I just think that’s unbelievably cute, and quirky at the same time.

I am personally a massive fan of arcades and coin games, even the modern ones; I have a particular penchant for the coin pushers (I have a secret technique that ALWAYS gives around 80% return… yes I am that sad… yes I do count them… no I do not have a social life…)

You’ve Been Tango’d! – Rainbow Series With Pocket Money Polishes

Hey everyone! Here is the second installment of the Rainbow Series. It’s a collaboration between myself and Charlie of Pocket Money Polishes. Each week we each post a colour-themed blogpost on both our blogs, so make sure you check hers out too!

Today is ‘orange’, if you couldn’t guess from the title! Now, I do love orange, but on my nails I’m not such a big fan as it can tend to clash with my pink-toned skin… so I have to choose them wisely! This time it was relatively easy to pick out a top 5 favourites as the oranges are a little lacking in volume in my collection. I love darker, shimmery oranges which take the emphasis off the clashyness because they’re more pretty and reflective.

Valentines Pretty Nails

Hey everyone, just a quick one for now as I have another post lined up for later, but wanted to day Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you! 🙂

I was wearing my Barry M Heather Silk yesterday, and thought, this would look amazing as a pastelly gradient! So I’ve put together as quick step-by-step guide to how to get this look. The heart was a last minute addition in recognition of the day, but I think it works quite well! It’s a really easy nail art look.
