Sinful Colors – Flower Power 

I keep finding sets of images from earlier this year, not sure how I missed some of these.  Anyway, today I have one of the summer editions from Sinful Colors, which I have seen knocking about on eBay and blog sales.  I still think its worth sharing as its a cutie!

As you can see this is a pink polish packed with glitter.  I’m wearing two coats over a base of Nailtiques 2 and topped off with Nails Inc Kensington Top Coat.  It was great and fun for summer, I think the colour combination works really well, even if it is pink!

Sinful Colors – Fierce Fiesta 

I’ve got lots of polishes to share with you that I picked up from the US.  I’ve got a few posts to catch up, so I’m not going to write reams and ream of words for you to plough through!

I really liked this yellow/red/pink combo, although my hubby said it was quite gross and he didn’t like it at all.  This is one coat of the Sinful Colors over a yellow creme.  It was the splodge and spread technique to spread the glitter out over the nail.  it bubbled a bit too as it dried, probably because I put a bit much on the nail.  But you can only see this if you were up close and personal to my fingers!

As I mentioned above, I picked this up in the US earlier this year – so it may or may not be still knocking about in stores.  There are a few places selling them on eBay so if you like the look of this – or indeed have ideas for a better colour combination that you want to try out!

Sally Hansen Satin Glam – Iced Metal

Wow, look at this pretty! Its been hiding away in my stash since I picked it up for £1 at a local pound store (I can’t remember which one…) and when I saw it sat there I just fancied trying it on.  And boy to I wish I tried it earlier!

Lets look at some pictures!

Wow, isn’t this some polish!!  What you see here is two coats over a base of Nailtiques 2.  No top coat as it has a satin finish and with a top coat on, you wouldn’t see this lovely finish.  Formula was excellent, one coat was nearly enough.  But two gives a clean even coverage on the nail.

And all for £1!  You can’t go wrong.  And I wore this for three days straight, over a weekend, with no chips!  Love it.  I can assure you it will be on my nails again before long!

What has been your best £1 buy?  Let me know in the comments below.

Maybelline Color Show Suit Style – Red Reaction 

Hey there – hope you all had great weekends!  Today I have a polish to show you thats been on my fingers for ages!  Gosh, I’ve fallen hard for this one… lets check out some pics!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Look at the red and the sparkle – OMG this is one gorgeous polish!  What you see here is three thin coats over a base of Naitiques 2 and topped off with Essie Gel Setter as my top coat (works like a treat on slight dull polishes!)  I did quite thin coats as the glitter tends to get dragged off otherwise and then you have the added benefit of building up some good depth of colour.

Red Reaction is part of the new Suit Style collection, and a sister polish to Suit & Sensibility, from Maybelline Color Show which has been out for a couple of weeks now.  Superdrug seems to have nail items on a 3 for 2, so worth picking this up if it catches your eye.

What are your pics from the Suit Style collection?  Let me know in the comments!

L’Oreal – Tuxedo Noir

I managed to snag this polish when we were in the US in May form the reduced section in a nearby Walmart.  I believe this might be from the Shades of Grey collection that L’Oreal brought out and I do love a black polish!  Lets have a look at some pics.

Ooohhh black and shiny.  Whats not to love?  Formula was a bit on the thick side, so if you did one thick coat you’d probably be OK.  I did two thin-ish coats out of habit really.  It does dry a bit matte so I used my Nails Inc Kensington Top Coat to bring out the shine and I think that helps.

What do you think?  I know there was a bit of a run on the holographic shade from this collection and I couldn’t find that anywhere, nor any other shades from the collection.

Did you manage to get any of the collection?  Let me know in the comments!

Nanacoco – French Macaron

I’m still bringing you some of the polishes I picked up from the US.  This one is another one for my swap with G of Nouveau Cheap and is another Nanacoco polish.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This one is lovely teal on teal, with a pale teal base packed with darker teal glitter.  Its a great colour combination as it really adds interest to the nail.  What you see here is two thickish coats applied b the dab and spread technique.  I was Sally Hansen Big Peel Off Base coat and then topped of with Nails Inc Kensington Top Coat.

Again, its a stinky polish, but if you can handle that then I think the payoff is worth it.  The colour is super flattering on the nail.

What do you think?  I’ve got quite into the glitter polishes I have again, thanks to this peel off base coat.

Nanacoco – Milky Shaky

I’ve not been very consistent in showing you my gorgeous polishes from my swap with G of Nouveau Cheap – apologies.  I got waylaid by Chanel….. not very wallet friendly I know… anyway.  Back to the stunning (but smelly) milky glitters of Nanacoco.  This one is called Milky Shaky and reminded me a little bit of Whimsical, but its not the same at all!  Lets check out some pics!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Milky Shaky is a pale blue base packed with glitters in pink and blue, with tiny tiny specs of green or turquoise.  As with Shu Cream, this one has that scent which can put you off if you are sensitive to chemical scents.  The formula was a bit thick, but with glitters that isn’t a bad thing or it can slide off the nail or pool at the sides (which means it never dries…..)

What you see above is two or three coats, and that depended on glitter placement.  If I felt it was a bit glitter light, another coat went on!  I used the Sally Hansen Big Peel Off Base Coat (last seen pairs with Shu Cream) – which I am becoming a huge fan of. I then topped with a good coat of Nails Inc Kensington Top Coat which seals it all in with a shine and reduces the stick of the polish.

This was so cute on my nails, I couldn’t stop looking at them!  As a bonus, removal was super easy and I was able to get my next polish on in record time!

What do you think?  Yay or nay?  Let me know in the comments!

Nanacoco – Shu Cream

I came back from the US a couple of weeks ago, seems like much longer now, but whilst I was there I was able to do a great swap with the absolutely lovely G of Nouveau Cheap, yes Queen of Affordable Cometics.  I was able to bring stuff with me to the US to ship to G and she sent me the most amazing package filled with brands that were new to me.  Amongst the goodies were some milky glitters from Nanacoco – a brand I had never registered before.

This is the first one I have to share with you and is called Shu Cream.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Shu Cream has am mikly cream base, packed with glitter that is white, orange and bronze, with the tiniest turquoise glitters. The website states it is in the gold family.  It really dinged my bells.  Now a quick word about the smell…. if you know or have tried Kleencolor then you will know what I mean about the smell.  It is quite chemically and rather strong.  So a ventilated area is a must.  And if you are sensitive to smells, you will want to avoid this as it does linger.

Anyway, i also paired this with something I have been DYING to try – which is the new peel off base coat from Sally Hansen.  Now I have tried a couple before and its always been a bit hit and miss.  So I did two thin coats of the SH Big Peel Off Base coat before applying two thickish coats of Shu Cream.  First coat was a drop and spread as it felt a bit gloopy, but that might have been because the peel off base coat once clear is a bit tacky.  Second coat was a bit thicker to capture lots of that lovely glitter!

Gosh, I love this.  Its almost work appropriate glitter isn’t it??  I topped with a layer of Nails Inc Kensington Top Coat to seal it all in and that also helped to reduce the smell.  As for that SH Big Peel Off Base Coat?  Man that is a WINNER.  The polish lasted two showers, numerous hand washing before I chose to peel it off.  And it was satisfying to peel off.  It came off in big pieces and left no residue behind.  I was super impressed.

Huge thanks to G for the swap, more swap lovelies to come over the next few posts!

Sinful Colors – Petal Be The Day

Hey there!  How are things going with you all?  I’m finally back into the swing of things post holiday – its always nice to be home and sleep in your own bed, but lets be honest, as soon as you get back you start planning for your next break.  Or at least we are!

Anyway, I have lots of lovely polishes to share with you all.  Including this beauty from Sinful Colors, part of the Bloomblast collection.  This one is the excellently named Petal Be The Day!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

As you can see, Petal Be The Day is a purple and blue glitter topper, the base is actually quite sheer so I put this over a base of Nella Milano Periwinkle Pucker.  The base is ever so slightly tinted so it darkened the base colour somewhat.  Look at all that glitter loveliness!  Cool huh?

It was a bit of a dab and spread approach to application.  Just painting it on meant the gliltter dragged across the nail and all ended up at the free edge.  Not idea.  Hence the dab and spread.  drying time was quite quick, but I also sealed it with a coat of Nails Inc Kensington Top Coat just to keep the glitter from snagging on anything.

I do like this, I am quite into glitters at the moment and the colour combination is really nice!  What do you think?  Let me know in the comments.
