Review: OPI Euro Centrale Polka.Com

This is a press sample.

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!

Tutorial: How to Paint Flamingo Nails

So I’ve had a request to do a tutorial of how to paint my flamingo nails, and as it is really very easy, I thought I would oblige!

You will need a light blue polish, a bright pink polish, a light pink polish, a small paintbrush and a dotting tool or toothpick. And don’t forget your base coat and topcoat!

Review: Sinful Colors Cinderella

This polish is one I have had for absolutely ages and bought during a Westfields polish shopping trip. Have you ever been there? It’s a HAVEN for nail polish.

Sinful Colors Cinderella is a lovely baby blue polish with a subtle pink shimmer to it. It’s so easy to see in these photos, but in the sunlight it really pops!

Fireworks

It’s Guy Fawkes Night! At least, it will be tonight… For those of you around the world that have no idea what I’m talking about, once a year on 5th November the UK remembers an event in history where a man called Guy Fawkes tried to commit treason and blow up the houses of parliament! Nowadays, we celebrate with fireworks and usually light a bonfire with a man on top, supposedly him!

We have a little rhyme we always say too….

Remember remember the 5th of November,
gun powder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
should ever be forgot!

So today I have a fireworks manicure for you to celebrate this fun and freezing night of the year!

Review: Zoya Gie Gie

So I confess, another post where I took the photos ages ago! I’m still trying to make my way through the nail polishes I bought during my trips to the USA and Turkey.

Zoya Gie Gie is a polish I bought when I was in Utah. I was there on business for a week and made sure I had time to visit all the popular cosmetics shops in the evenings. This sweet little polish came from Ulta which is just the most amazingly overwhelming shop if you’re into nail polish!

Review: Jacava Raspberry Bavarois

Hi all! Today I have another review for you about a polish made by the relatively new British brand, Jacava. This luxurious polish is called Raspberry Bavarois.

Jacava’s Raspberry Bavarois is a wonderful hot pink but with a richer, fuller tone. This pretty pink has much more of a red undertone to it than a purple, and so really suits my skintone which is just one of the reasons I love it so much!

The bottle itself is very tall with a nice long brush handle which is great for getting a good grip. The brush is nice an smooth flowing and I managed to get full coverage of my nail in just three strokes. Much better than some polishes.

It took just two coats to get a nice even colour on my nail, which was great as I really hate my nail polish too thick.

You can buy this beautiful pink polish HERE for £14.50, which is a little high for your average nail polish purchaser, but it’s also an 8-free polish (free from lots of nasty chemicals) and even has gold leaf writing on the bottle!
