Sinful Colors – Rose Dust 

I wanted to share this post with you as I note from a number of US Blogs that this Sinful Colors shade can now be found in some of the new Autumn/Fall ranges/displays.  I got mine earlier this year from the lovely G who oversees the excellent Nouveau Cheap (do visit if you haven’t already!)

As the name implies, this is a rose pink shade, not super pink but dusky pink.  With a hint of hidden shimmer that leans silver.  now i really didn’t expect to like this on my skin tone as much as I do, but I do.  Formula was excellent and workable.  Two coats here over a base of Nailtiques 2 and topped off with Clear As Air Wet n Wild Top coat (WHICH I ADORE AND I WANT MORE OF THEM!).  I honestly think its the silver shimmer that makes me love this – that a G picking it out for me!

Anyway, I believe it popping up in the Oh Snap! Sinful Colors display for those of you in the US.

Let me know what you think in the comments, would you wear this shade?

Nella Milano – Lady Lavender

*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

Well hello there!  Hope you’ve all been having a great week so far.  This is a scheduled post as I am currently away on holiday with my family.  We are off hitting the US of A and when I get back I hope to have some lovely nail pretties for you to drool over!

But enough of that, today I want to share with you another lovely Nella Milano shade I have been asked to review.  This one is called Lady Lavender and, as the name suggests, is a lavender shade.  Its not too pale, but its not a dark shade either; lets check out the pics!

What you see above is three thin coats over a base of Essence Anti Nail Split Base (purchased by me) topped with a layer of Nails Inc Kensington Top Coat (purchased by me).  The colour was quite hard to capture, as it is more purple leaning than the pictures would have you believe.  However, you get quite a good idea of the colour on the Nella Milano page here.

Formula was good, a bit of the thin side, hence three coats but the colour builds up really well and I don’t like to overload by brush.  Drying time was also good.  Wear time was also good, these polishes seem to play well with my chosen top coat.  The brush is thin yet flexible and you can get coverage for one nail with one dip of the brush.  I was surprised how much I loved this shade once I got it on my nails.  Maybe its something to do with the improved weather we had whilst I was swatching.

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.’

On the website you can search by collection, there are eight sets and one set of top and base coat  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, Lady Lavender should be on offer for £4.95, so if you like the look of this, get moving!

Let me know what you think in the comments.  What are your favourite lavender shades?

Sinful Colors – Winterberry

As you may recall, I kind of went into shock when I noticed both Sinful Colors and Revlon Moon Candy in my local drugstore.  These are two brands I either ask people to send me or when I do get to go to the US, I go a bit crazy when I see them.  I recently picked up a couple of SC polishes from my local Boots and this is the first one I’m going to show you.

This is Winterberry, a dark plum/dark lavender colour with a subtle shimmer in it.  Its a lovely colour but actually very hard to capture with my camera.

It does picture a couple of shades darker, but you get an idea of the finish at least.  Formula was good, but on the runny side.  What you see above are three coats of polish, some thicker than others, but it seems to level off quite well.  I used Essie Millionails (which I hear is now discontinued!) on my base coat and Seche Vite as a top coat.  The Seche did bring a hint of extra dimensions to the colour.

Sinful Colors is now available in Boots, either instore on online here.  RRP is £1.99, but there are often 3 for 2 offers, so keep your eyes peeled!  You can also find out more information via the new Sinful Colors UK site which also includes as full range and images of all colors.

Which ones will you be picking up?

Tony Moly – Shooting Star (GS09)

I had been stalking eBay for Korean Nail Polish for some time now, in fact, probably for the better part of a year. I had yet to actually buy any and then I saw the new Tony Moly polishes and I had to get them. There are three in the range from what I can tell, Milkyway – a blue polish with darker blue and copper glitters (a dupe for GiTA and Whimiscal), Pinky Star – a pink based polish with red, gold and small silver glitter in, and Shooting Star – a purple polish with blue, green, red, gold and silver glitter in.

Today, I am wearing Shooting Star over Revlon Cloud as a base. Let’s start with Cloud, one of the Revlon Rapid Dry polishes. Does what is says on the tin, a very rapid dry polish. Its a super light lavender creme that goes on surprisingly well. Ordinarily it s a bit pale for me, but I really did like it once I got it on. I did two coats of this.

Then I did two coats of Shooting Star. Like most glitters, you need to plop a bit of a blob on and then work it over the nail. The purple tint to this polish built up better than I was expecting and after two coats clearly matches the colour of the polish in the bottle. What I like about it is the variety of glitter colurs and sizes. Plus, I could have left it with one coat for a glitterhint or done a third coat for a full on glitterbomb.

From the smell, I’m guessing Tony Moly isn’t 3-free, but if that doesn’t put you off and you adore glitters, then I would suggest that purchasing these is a no brainer. I got mine from ~The Cutest Make Up ~ who I would recommend in a heart beat.

Wet N Wild Megalast – Bite the Bullet

Oh my goodness.  I am SO IN LOVE with these Wet N Wild Megalast polishes.  They are super easy to use, have a glorious formula and last in excess of 5 days.

Bite the Bullet is a wonderful light purple/dark lavender shade, perfect for spring.  I would imagine it would make a great glitter base as well.  The formula was just a good as that with Haze of Love.  Two coats of pure nail polish joy.  No bad lingering smells either, this just gets better and better.  I have two more to share and I will do shortly.

I’ve gotta get me some more of these!!
