Review: beautyuk Smokey Lilac

I’m baaaacccccckkkkk!
Oh goodness it’s been too long. Wedding planning and work (and general laziness) have prevented me from posting for a while, but I have missed it so much and am so glad to be back painting my nails for you all to see again!

Unfortunately, my nails haven’t coped too well with the harsh weather we’ve had here in London over the last few months, causing them all to break and then I stupidly started biting them again. But thank goodness I came to my senses and stopped biting them, and they are now gradually growing again. So please excuse the shortness of my nails in the posts over the next few weeks.

Today I thought I would start off simple and decided to review a new bottle of polish I have just bought by beautyuk. It’s called Smokey Lilac, and is a really lovely soft colour perfect for the upcoming spring (although it’s hard to believe that it’ll ever arrive!).

The colour is really nice and I actually loved it on my skin tone, even though I do tend to prefer brighter colours. The formula is also really quite nice – I mean, it’s very very thin and did require three thick coats, but it dried down relatively thin and didn’t end up looking gloopy on the nail.

I think it would look perfect with silver glitter over it to make it a bit more glitzy – but you know what I’m like!!

I bought this polish from Superdrug for only £1.99 which is an absolute bargain, and I’m really tempted to go back and get a couple more from their selection. I especially like the look of their Posh Polish collection. GLITTER!!

Do you own any beautyuk polishes?

For this manicure I used:
  • OPI – Nail Envy
  • beautyuk – Smokey Lilac
  • Seche Vite – Quick Dry Topcoat

    It is isn’t it! I don’t have many lilacs so it’s nice to add it to the collection :)

    I have quite a few Beauty UK polishes as I bought a couple of their sets of mini polishes. My favourites so far are Smokey Lilac, Bob Bon (yellow) and Posh Puddle (medium brown).

      I’ve been eyeing up their mini polishes for quite a while now! I love minis :) I never finish a normal bottle so a mini one is the perfect size!

    Bon Bon – not Bob Bon :)
