Spotted! Max Factor Gel Shine Lacquer and Kelly Brook Lacquers at New Look

Gosh, its August and there are SO MANY new things on the shelves….. lots of Spotted posts coming up in the next week!  First up, the beginning of the RAFT of gel style polishes that are coming out in the UK now.  This is Max Factors version, Gel Shine Lacquer.20140804-131147-47507233.jpg

As you can see, RRP is £6.99.  Colours aren’t necessarily unique but if the wear is good, then that is all that matters.


Next up, a whole load of Kelly Brook polishes now available in New Look.  All sorts of colour ways and finishes.  Word on the street is that these are a bit rubbish, I’ve not tried them myself, but do let me know what your experience is if you have.







Lots and lots of Kelly Brook as you can see above!  Any thing catch your eye?  Let me know in the comments.

New Things I have Spotted #52 – Model’s Own Artstix, Seventeen, Accessorize, Bourjois, Sinful Colors & Maybelline.

I’ve seen quite a few new things on my travels recently, so I thought I’d quickly post them so that you can look out for them this weeked.

First up, double ended Artstix  and Artstix beads from Model’s Own.  Sticks are £6 and beads are £4 but there is an offer currently in Boots.


Next up, more from the revamped Seventeen line.  This time Nail Graffiti. Retail is £3.99


Then more catch up editions from Accessorize, this time a Velvet Manicure set.  Retail is £6.


And then, more from Bourjois and their nail art releases.  These are Laser Toppers, strangely only on the French site so far.  RRP is £5.99 on these, but they do look cute!


New Sinful Colors in Boots.  These are the Sugar Rush Pastels.  Retail is £1.99 on these, again Boots have regular offers.


Here you can see some of the names of the polishes in this limited edition.


Finally, hot on the heels of the Polka Dots collection comes the new Neons.


The promo for these is pretty awesome too

Anything in particular catch your eye?

Models Own – Pukka Purple

OK, pictures only coming up…. this is Model’s Own Pukka Purple, one of the new Ice Neon shades in a lovely frosted bottle.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It dries matte as you can see.  I found the formula quite thick and hard to work with as it dries so quickly.  I’d be very interested to here how you might have found some of the others if you have tried them.

The colour is VERY intense and the pictures do not show how intense.

As price point goes, Models Own are a very reasonable £5 and they have great online offers for multiple purchasing, so do check with website. You can also found them in larger Boots stores.

Let me know what you think or if you have tried these, love to have your comments!






New Things I have Spotted #7 – Nails Inc & Barry M

Its that time of the year when every visit into a store brings something new, its exciting but potentially hard on the wallet.  Here are some more things I have Spotted! on my travels about.


Here are the new Neons from Nails Inc the colour of these was Pop! Hello!  Already the green was decimated, so obviously popular.  Still no sign of the Fishnet Magnetic Polish is Green.  They also seem very popular on the website with little availability.


Finally, more Barry M.  These are three of the four new polishes released along with the Magnetics Collection.  The fourth one, not shown, is a copper with a green sparkle in it.  Sounds mad, but its super pretty will try to get pics to prove it.  The ones about are Teal, an iridescent purple and a black with sparkles.

Edit – I’m wearing Nicole by OPI, Shoot for the Maroon in the image above, just a fyi and all that…..
