No7 Stay Perfect – Dual Nail Colour

‘No7 Stay Perfect Dual Nail Colour is a special edition launch. The double ended nail product offers two great nail colours in one product and we’ve chose your favourite colours; Hot to Trot and Cheeky Chops!’

Today in the No7 advent calendar i got this ‘No7 Stay Perfect – Dual Nail Colour’ It came in the colours ‘Hot To Trot’ and Cheeky Chops’ These are such nice colours and names for nail polishes. Cheeky Chops will be great in the summer and Hot To Trot will be great in the winter/autumn season. What i like about this duo set is for £6.00 your getting two nail polish’s rather than spending £6.00 for just one. You can use these for nail art, you can use one on the nail and the other on the tip, or you can paint them all one colour and then paint one finger the other colour for the accent nail. The only bad thing about this nail duo are you need more than one coat as they are not very pigmented. On the plus side i really like these nail polishes and i think they are worth the money.

You can pick this up from boots for £6.00 here.

I hope you all had a great christmas and got everything you wanted

No7 Glitter Nail Effect

‘Whether you’re looking for a matte textured nail, or glittery top coats, No7’s new range of Nail Effects has the top coat for you!Glitter Ball and Sun Rays are multi sized glitters that can be used for creative nail looks, or layered up for a full on glitter effect.’

Today i got this Glitter nail polish, its in the colour ‘Glitter Ball’ which i find such a nice name for a nail polish. It looks like just a silver glitter nail polish but it has these little blue glitter in the bottle as well. Whats great about glitter nail polishes is that they go with just about any colour.  You can wear glitter on just the tip, all over the nail or just on one nail as the accent nail. This glitter effect nail polish also comes in the colour Sun Rays which is a gold nail polish. I read reviews on the site that this nail polish chips easily, i recommend putting a top coat on the top to hold the glitter in place. Overall i love this product and i only have a few glitter nail polishes and i love them all as they make your nails look so nice for special occasions or every day.

You can pick this up from boots for £7.00 here in the shade Glitter Ball

No7 Advent Calendar – Day 5

Day 5 of the No7 advent calendar

No7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour

‘No7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour gives a pigment rich colour with a quick drying ultra gloss finish.’

Todays little gift in the advent calendar is a nail polish. You only need two coats of this nail polish as it’s a very pigmented nail polish. I’m a bit disappointed with this colour as it doesn’t match my skin tone and doesn’t show up like the colour in the bottle, as I’m very pale and this colour is a pale colour it just doesn’t look nice on me at all. If the colour was a nice christmas colour I would have been much happier. Overall the nail polish is a very pigmented colour but the shade does not suit me, I will be giving this colour to my mum as I’m sure she loves these kind of shades of nail polishes.

‘Highland Mist’
*I couldn’t find this shade online but they have some gorgeous colours here*

You can pick this up at boots for £6.00

My Nail Polish Collection & How I Store Them

2

I don’t have a very large collection of nail polishes but the ones i do own are my favourite colours and brands.

IMG_1024

I couple months ago i bought a Jewellery stand from urban outfitters and i use this to store all my nails polishes as i don’t have a big collection and it fits them all in perfectly. This stand is perfect for any small collection of things you want to put on show. I like how its shaped as half of a birdcage as i love those kinds of decorations as they are simple but eye catching.

My Nail Polishes

IMG_1025

I saw these in the pound shop and thought i’d try them out, for £1 thats a bargain! They are Gel nail polishes and i got them in the shades ‘Blue Bling’ ‘Orchid’ and ‘Raspberry’. I would recommend using a top coat with these as they chip easily but apart from that the colours are very pigmented and it gives a nice effect on your nails.

I got these in a set for my birthday from Next and they are a french nail manicure set. These nail polishes are so nice and come out in such colours and don’t chip. I’m sorry i don’t know the set name for these as i threw the box they came in away but I’m sure they still have this set somewhere in Next.

Nails Inc are one of my favourite brands of nail polishes as they are very pigmented and last ages before they start to chip. My favourite colours are the Kate Spade Black and the Diet Coke inspired one in ‘London’. I use this for the fall as i love browns and blacks as they go with just about anything. The two other shades are ‘Instyle Bluebell’ and ‘Jermyn Street’

One of my other favourite brands are the Barry M. My favourite ones of my little collect are ‘Amethyst Glitter’ Which goes with practically any nail varnish and is such a pretty colour and ‘Mint Green’ ‘Guava’ ‘Caramel’ and ‘Blueberry’. The colours are so bright and look nice and shiny.

I decided to try the Revlon nail varnish because i heard it doesn’t have the strong smell that comes with the nail varnish. But when i tried it, it didn’t smell any different to my other nail varnishes which was a bit disappointing. The colour is very bright and doesn’t chip so thats a plus.

This 17 Magnetised nail polish is my favourite nail polish ever! i love the way it turns out after you use the magnet on the top and it lasts ages. I got mine in the ‘Grey’ colour but they are a few others to choose from.

My mum bought me this Collection Bedazzled nail effect in the colour ‘Glittersweet’ as i wanted a glitter nail polish for ages and couldn’t find one i liked. I like how small the glitter is as you can wear it lightly over other colours and it doesn’t contrast with them.

I know my collection isn’t that big but i have a little variety of nail polishes, i will do a tester of each one and adding it to the blog soon if that will help you if you like the look of any of these.
