The Nikki Strange range has landed in M&S. A huge range of make up here, from eye to face palettes, to blushers, brushes and of course nail polish. Liking the design on that make up bag! You can see the bottles have little spots on the them, only seem to be available as sets. Have you seen this range yet in your local M&S?
Wowzers, this is one heck of a pink polish. Its a bit too much colour wise for me, but as we’ve previously discussed, it seemed wrong not to get a full set during the Models Own sale when they were £2.50 each…. but lets check out some pictures before we get into the nitty gritty!
Chrome Pink is one of the Colour Chrome Collection released by Models Own this spring. This one is certainly one the brightest in the collection and probably my least favourite of the bunch. But that is because I’m not a fan of pink. No way. Not at all and I’m not convinced that the colour does anything for my skin tone.
However, that aside, the formula is good and workable. It does dry very quickly, so by the time you have done ten fingers (or toes) it will be time to go back over them again. Quick isn’t the word!
There are ten shades in the Colour Chrome Collection and we’ve already seen Blue, Gold, Indigo, Mauve, Olive and Rose. We saw silver earlier this week on the blog. RRP is £4.99 if you pick them up in Superdrug (which is now a Models Own stockist) or order them online directly.
After I saw the empty Miss Sporty Candy Shine insert, I knew it wouldn’t be long before I saw a full one. Here it is! So on the left we have the Peel Off Glitter Base coat, followed by three cremes. And then the three glitter toppers that I have seen hanging around in the stands for a while now. Makes sense! Will you be picking these up? As you can see above, there is a Three for Two offer on in Boots at the moment.
Getting there! We are nearly through the lovely Models Own Chrome Collection – I do love these polishes. They are so quick to use and they do work well for stamping (as long as you are quick!) I know we’ve seen a lot of silver recently, but here is another one for you viewing pleasure. Here is Chrome Silver.
As before, the formula dries very quickly, so you have to move fast. Formula is good, it does cling to every blip and imperfection on the nail. But its still lovely.

I happened into my local Wilcos, just to pick up a few bits you understand, to notice that the Essence stands had been updated. First up, the new edition Nude collection Then to the right of that, an intriguing new sign…. And beneath the sign, the full range of nude polishes. OOhhhhh, I wonder what the new items will be!

I have been a bit remiss, sorry all. I meant to share all the Models Own Colour Chrome collections close together and I’ve been swayed by other pretties. I promise to try harder…. so with that in mind, here is number six – Chrome Blue
Yep, that is blue alright. A good blue. A true blue. Not denim leaning. Two easy coats over a base of Essence Better Than Gel Nails Base coat. As always, speed is an issue with a chrome polish. Take too long or go over a partially dry area and dragging will occur. I love how easy they are to remove and apply, meaning if you do change your polish frequently, then its not too time intensive. I did get a good two solid days out of this before it chipped significantly. I keep meaning to see what damage a top coat does, but I haven’t the heart to ruin a nice mani… I will try and report back however.

A few new spots for you all today – first up new from Collection the Field Day collection Three lippies and three polishes.
A close up of those polishes – can’t argue at £1.99
Also in the Collection display, 2 in 1 Top & Base Coat and 2 in 1 Longer & Stronger Nail Care.
Saw this work in progress in the Miss Sporty stand. Looks like their Spring 2015 shades, cremes with glitter top coats perhaps.
Then in M&S new Leighton Denny Shades., including one exclusive shade.
Some nice looking polishes here.
And more polishes. £11 each.
So quite a few new things to keep your eyes out for, anything you think you want to check out? Let me know in the comments.
I pulled out an older polish, given to me by my mum for this NOTD post. I do love a good raspberry shade, not pink, raspberry. Or as in the case of this one, Fuchsia.
As you’d expect with an older polish, formula is a bit stinky but its easy to work with. Two coats over a base of Nailtiques 2 sealed in with one of my many top coats (and I can’t recall which one). Anyway, wear was good and removal super easy. Love polishes like this.
I’ve been playing around with my MoYou stamping plates again. I saw this star pattern on one of the Princess Plates, I believe its number 14.
I used Colors By Llarowe Black Gold Texas Tea, which stamps so very well and gives a bit of interest as its a great holo polish.
Love this, the pink is Cheery Bon Bon by Nella Milano – which we’ve seen before and reviewed here.
What do you think? Too pink? or just right? Let me know in the comments
I just happened to pop into my local Superdrug when I spotted new Rita Ora shades for Rimmel London. As you can see below, the new Rita Ora shades have cute flowers on the cap so that you can easily spot them amongst the wider range. According to the website, there are twelve shades in this release. Lets take a closer look…..I also saw this rather large stand on the way out, not sure how I missed it on the way in!As well as new Rita Ora shades, I also noticed new inserts in the main Rimmel Nail Bar wall. These are Sweetie Heart polishes and appear to have a matte finish, five shades here in shades reminiscent of Swizzle Matlow Love Hearts,.Then, I saw these below the Sweetie Heart shades, another range of five polishes called Pearly Queen (nothing on the Rimmel London website yet)It does look as if the whole 60 Second Line has had a revamp, the bottles look like they have had a facelift, but not sure if that includes a formula re-brand or not. I was with a friend of mine, who bought the mint green 60 seconds polish and she was able to coat her nails twice within 5 mins. They were touch proof within 60 seconds and rock hard in about 4-5mins. Impressive.
I’ve not tired them myself yet. Have you? if so, do let me know in the comments. Have you seen these in your local stores yet? Anything catch your eye?
