Review: OPI Mariah Carey Liquid Sand Can’t Let Go

This is a press sample.

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!

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.

Review: Mavala Sublime Collection Poetic Rose

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.

Review: Mavala Sublime Collection Ivory Beige

This is a press sample.

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!

Golden Chevrons

I’m not going to lie, I’m really not that good at abstract nail art. I just don’t find it very inspiring and find it hard to come up with an idea I actually like. I guess it’s just not cute enough.

Having said that, I thought I should just try, just once. Here we have my glittery golden chevrons!

Review: Mavala Sublime Collection Amethyst

This is a press sample.

Today I have for you a review of another polish from Mavala’s Sublime Collection, this one being the shade Amethyst.

I must say, when this lovely collection arrived in the post, and I unboxed them and had a good look, Amethyst was the one I was most excited about. And now I’ve tried it, I was definitely right in my early judgement!

This baby is just my colour!
