Happy Hands Metal Heart

I have managed to avoid indies for the longest of times… I have not looked too closely at them as I have known that as soon as I do, that is the end of my bank balance! Anyway, Sarah from Chalkboard Nails posted a review of Happy Hands’ new Faint of Heart Collection, and let me just say, that was the end of my half-closed eyes!! I immediately fell for ‘Metal Heart’ and within the hour had placed an order for it from the Happy Hands shop, because we all know indies go out of stock as soon as look at them.

Prepare yourselves (and your purses!).

China Glaze Infra Red

Ever since I first heard that China Glaze were releasing another set of holographic polishes, entitled the Hologlam Collection, I was dying to try at least one. I love holo as much as the next nail blogger, so when the Hologlam polishes popped up on Nail Polish Direct, I just had to satiate my curiosity. I managed to restrain myself to just the one polish, since the Hologlams are more pricey than the standard China Glaze (£8.95 at nailpolishdirect.com and more at other retailers compared with an average £6ish price tag for a standard China Glaze).

Infra Red is pretty gorgeous – it’s a lovely raspberry-fuchsia shade with some seemingly subtle linear holo to it… the holo is largely invisible in anything other than purest sunlight or bright artificial light, hence some of the weird angles in the following photos. My nails all have one coat of Revlon Quick Dry Topcoat over them:

OPI Polka.com (+ UK dupe!)

Hello lovelies, today I have for you the very pretty Polka.com from OPI’s Euro Centrale collection. I love this glitter a lot – the combination of colours is just perfect and it looks super pretty over creme colours.

I am aware that my photos in this post aren’t that great in terms of quality, I couldn’t get the camera to pick up the colours of the glitter in natural light so had to play around with low-lighting but as I don’t have a tripod I had to suffice with my shaky hand, hence why some of the photos are a touch blurry 🙁 sorry!

Barry M Green Berry Gelly

First of all I’m sorry it’s taken me sooo long to blog about the new Barry M Gelly Nail Paints – I’ve been slowly working my way through a backlog of photos in my ‘unblogged’ folder! Anyway, Barry M have recently released four gorgeous new Gelly Nail Paints in the colours Green Berry, Lychee, Papaya and Dragonfruit as part of their Spring 2013 collection.

Green Berry is an absolutely beautiful turquoisey-aqua green creme polish, it’s very Spring-Summer appropriate and lovely and eye-catching!
