Morning all :) It’s Saturday! Hooray! We’re off to start Christmas shopping soon and I can’t wait, but before then I have a lovely new OPI nail polish to show you.

A couple of days ago I told you about an email I received from Chemist Direct, asking if I would be interested in trying out and reviewing two OPI polishes for them! I showed your their Can’t Let Go polish, but today I have the second polish they sent me to show you!

This is Polka.Com from the OPI Euro Centrale collection, and what a pretty glitterbomb it is!

Sadly, the time has come and we are at the end of looking at the gorgeous Sublime Collection from Mavala. I really do think this is one of the nicest polish collections I own, as I do love my autumn colours!

Today I have for you, the soft natural colour of Warm Grey.

A while ago I recieved an email from Chemist Direct, asking if I would interested in trying out and reviewing two OPI polishes for them! Of course, I glad to accept as I haven’t tried many OPIs before other than Nail Envy. This afternoon I want to show you one of the two polishes they sent to me!

OPI Liquid Sand Can’t Let Go is a polish from their Mariah Carey collection. I don’t have many textured polishes either so it was an interesting experiment!

Morning all! I’ve got a bit of a backlog of posts that I need to get out to you all, so today you get two posts for your reading pleasure!

The first of these is another polish from the Mavala Sublime Collection, the colour Twilight Blue. And really, I couldn’t have thought of a better name I don’t think.

My Nail Art Essentials

I’ve had a couple of requests for a post about all the equipment I use when I do nail art, so today I’ve put together some photos and I’m going to walk you through it all! Nothing is expensive, you could probably buy everything here for less than £30 altogether, so ideal if you want to get a few things to try out at home.

First off, sorry I was a bit absent from my blog over the weekend. I took some time to prepare for an exciting Christmas surprise I have coming up for you all at the end of the week!

Now, onto today’s review post! This beauty is the delightful Poetic Rose fom the Sublime Collection by Mavala.

Mavala sent me this collection to review a couple of weeks ago and I really have been so impressed with them. I’ve still got two to review, but you can click these links to see my other reviews: Espresso, Amethyst and Ivory Beige.

I just can’t get enough of these cute and quirky nail designs at the moment!

I know this has been done by quite a few people before, but I just couldn’t resist giving it a go myself, so I present to you my ladybirds!

Morning all!

Today I have another polish for you from the oh-so-gorgeous Sublime Collection by Mavala. This time, it’s a lovely self-descriptive polish called Ivory Beige.

Ivory Beige is a lovely smooth creme polish in a sort of pale cafe latte colour. I think actually this is the colour that my mum has just decided to paint her hallway in her new house!
