Holiday Break

I am off seeking sunshine, warmth and polish in the Canary Islands for the next week.  Hope you all have a lovely week!


Holiday Time!!

I’m off on my holidaybobs, cross your fingers for some good weather (or at least some dry weather!)

Do check out my blog sale if you haven’t already and drop me an email if something catches your eye.  I’m clearing out some much needed space, all “help” gratefully received!

See you in a week!

Chanel – Holiday

Ah Chanel, you purveyor of polish goodness that is in high demand across the world.  I’ll be honest, much as I love the last few Chanel polishes I have bought, a little voice inside my head keeps telling me the formula is not as good a it used to be.  To a point, that voice is right.  But along comes Summertime De Chanel 2012 and the fantastic hot orange that is Holiday.

Holiday is a super saturated, intense, hot orange creme that could not have had a better name.  It sunshine, sun screen, ice creams and beaches all in one bottle but is not a neon.  In fact, its a complete blinder.

The formula on this is flawless (HURRAH!), glides on the nail like butter with prefect consistency.  It dries well and evenly.  Plus if you are a thick coater, you probably could get away with one coat.  What you see above is two with a coat of Seche Vite for extra shine, although it does dry glossy so the top coat is for wear extending purposes.

And I love it.  Love it!  Wear is amazing, plus I’ve had it on my toes since I bought it (10 days and counting) and its such a flattering colour on any skin tone.  I actually bought this as they were unpacking the delivery in the store, which is surprising as usually they get them a few days early.

If you only buy one polish from the extensive Summer Collections (Dior, Chanel, Lancome etc) you wouldn’t put a perfectly polished finger wrong with this.  Chanel retails for £18 in stores at all Chanel counters.

New Things I Have Spotted #12 – Bourjois 1 Second Nail Remover AND NEW CHANEL!!




Ok ok. So I fell for the 1 Second gimmick. It was a good deal, buy one get one half price, worth trying so a review will follow.

Plus, I caved and bought Holiday, the new Chanel. It’s amazing. Vibrant. Intense. Orange. Love it. Painted my toes in it.  Apologies for the picture, I think I’ve gone sun crazy! (a proper review will follow, promise x)
