Its Nella time again!  This week its a shade called Vintage Violet!  Lets look at some pictures…

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This is two coats over a base of Nailtiques 2 with a top coat of Nails Inc Kensington to bring out the shine.  Although I must admit the polish dried quite shiny on its own, without any additional help required.  Formula was good, its a great creme shade, not hint of a shimmer and it dries and levels well.  Its a super shade or purple, slightly dusty but still bright.

On the website you can search by collection, there are eight sets and one set of top and base coat www.nellamilano.com.  You can also visit the brand on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest or Facebook to keep up to date with releases and current shades.  The price point is £8.95.  But this week, Vintage Violet should be on offer for £4.95, so if you like the look of this, this is the week to take the plunge and buy!

Nella Milano – Mercury Haze

We are flying through these Nella Milano shades like they are going out of fashion!  I have to say that generally I have really pleased with the quality and the range of the creme shades they have produced.  Even those shades I wouldn’t have naturally picked out for myself, I’ve been enjoying the range of colours as they’ve graced my finger tips.  And I have worn each and every one of them for a least a day – so I know that the wear time, with proper nail prep, is excellent.

Anyway, onto one of my favourite shades from the set of Nella polishes I have, this is Mercury Haze, a stunning dark grey creme made for the autumn season!  Lets check out some pics!

This is two coats over a base of Nailtiques 2 and sealed in with Essie Gel Setting Top Coat (its part of Essie’s Gel polish range, but in my experience it works like a charm over most other brands too!) which I picked up in the US and I shall definitely be getting another bottle next time I am in the US.  The formula is creamy and easy to work with, two coats provides excellent even coverage and the colour is just so perfect for autumn.

On the website you can search by collection, there are eight sets and one set of top and base coat www.nellamilano.com.  You can also visit the brand on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest or Facebook to keep up to date with releases and current shades.  The price point is £8.95.  But this week, Mercury Haze should be on offer for £4.95, so if you like the look of this, this is the week to take the plunge and buy!

Nella Milano – Fiery Flamenco

Goodness, how can it be September???  But I am all ready for Autumn – love me a good vampy shade and awesome sweaters!  Bring it on!  So with that in mind, here is a great vamp red shade from Nella Milano – this is Fiery Flamenco!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Gosh, what a fab colour!  Perfect for lazy late summer evenings (and days!).  Its actually quite bright in person, its certainly not Coral or pink, but it pulls more coral than apple red.

Formula is great, as I have come to expect from Nella.  This is almost a one coat wonder, but what you see above it two over a base of Nailtiques 2 and topped off with Nails Inc Kensington Top Coat.

Chanel – Lavanda 

Finally catching up with some of my recent purchases, I did take the plunge a buy two more shades from the Chanel Méditerranée Summer 2015 collection.  We’ve already seen Terrana and I also have Méditerranée.  This one is the stunning purple of the collection, called Lavanda.

Lets check out some pics!

As you can see above, Lavanda is a lovely vivid purple creme.  I love this, such a great shade and perfect for Summer.  I think I will pop it on my toes next!

Formula is excellent, as are most Chanel cremes, I am smitten!  Wear time, over a base of Nailtiques 2 and topped with Essie Gel Shine top coat was excellent.  Three days and no chips!  How happy was I with that!  Those Chanel brushes are just fab and I really love them!

What do you think?  Did you pick up Lavanda?

Nella Milano – Sweetie Darling

*Disclosure: This product was sent to me for review but this does not influence the opinions expressed in this blog which are entirely my own. Contains Affiliate links

How can another week have passed?  How?  I don’t know about you but time is passing quickly – and the weather has been less than kind.  Where is this summer??  We’ve hardly seen any here.  But never mind that, I have a bright pop of a pink polish to share with you today!  This is Sweetie Darling from Nella Milano.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Formula for this shade was quite thick, I could have got away with just one but did two so that it was opaque over the whole nail surface.  As a pink leaning blue, I’m not 100% convinced I can pull this off, but its meant to be summer so hey!  I’m working it.  I based using Nailtiques 2 and topped using my trust Nails Inc Kensington Top Coat.  It did take a bit longer than usual to dry, so that might be because of the formula thickness.

On the website you can search by collection, there are eight sets and one set of top and base coat www.nellamilano.com.  You can also visit the brand on Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest or Facebook to keep up to date with releases and current shades.  The price point is £8.95.  But this week, Sweetie Darling is on offer for £4.95, so if you like the look of this, this is the week to take the plunge and buy!

Nella Milano – Scarlet Heat 

*Disclosure: This product was sent to me for review but this does not influence the opinions expressed in this blog which are entirely my own. Contains Affiliate links

Its Nella Milano time again!  I think most nail polish lovers like to have a good red in their stash.  This one, if you’ve been looking for one, could be the one for you!  This is Scarlet Heat – lets check out some pictures.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

What you see here is two coats over a base of Nailtiques 2 and topped with Nails Inc Kensington Top Coat.  To be honest, the shine on this was excellent and the top coat wasn’t 100% necessary.  Old habits die hard!  Formula was good, easy to work with and it didn’t pool around my cuticles.  It is certainly a bright, punch of red on the nail.  Its not a true apple red but its a good classic vampy red which would probably work with all skin tones.

Nella Milano – Evergreen

*Disclosure: This product was sent to me for review but this does not influence the opinions expressed in this blog which are entirely my own. Contains Affiliate links

Its Nella Milano time again.  Goodness, I’m sure its not just me, but the weeks seem to be flying by!  I have a fab green sahde to share with you today, say HELLO! to Evergreen. This one is from the Four Seasons collection.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Formula on this was excellent.  I am really impressed.  What you see here are two coats over a base of Nailtiques 2 ad topped with Nails Inc Kansington Top Coat (both purchased by me).  The green is really unusual in that it is quite dark and not the bright grass green you often get with other shades.  In fact, I have little like it in the BIG stash!

Nella Milano – Grey Goose

Its Nella Milano time again.  This one is another lovely pale, work appropriate shade, called Grey Goose.  This is from the Misty Morning collection.  Lets check out the pictures!

Formula for this one was excellent, it glided onto the nail.  Drying time was also excellent, although it was quite warm when I applied this.  What you see above is two coats over a base of Nailtiques 2 topped off with Nails Inc Kensington Top Coat (which I am running low on……)  This is a great neutral shade without being based on skintone and would work as a great base for some stamping.  I didn’t get a chance to stamp over this for a number of reasons, but next time I definitely will!

Now we all know that yellow can be a huge nightmare to apply, it can go on streaky or dry unevenly.  I am thrilled to say that neither of these apply here.  Formula is better than I had expected and what you see about is two coats over a base of Nailtiques 2.  And no top coat.  See how shiny that polish is?  Yes it really is like that.  I do love these Nella cremes, the formula is excellent and its almost as good as a perfect Chanel creme.  You cannot go far wrong!

Look how bright this polish is, wow!

In their own words ‘Made in France, Nella Milano nail lacquers are colour rich and long-lasting, making it very easy to keep your nails naturally chic at all times.  Nella Milano stands for effortlessly stylish, elegant and fashionable.  There is a Nella for any mood and personality and Nella Milano colours will perfect and complement any individual style.’
