2 days ago

F.U.N Lacquer is a polish maker based in Singapore. Their polishes retail for around £13.50 (I bought mine though a UK stockist).

Crazy in Love was a part of their Valentine's Collection 2019. It's a fuchsia (violet purple) glitter polish. The application is easy, as the glitters are easy to spread, but it applies rather thinly, so you will need 3 coats if you don't want …

Lotions/ Creams - LUSH - Soft Coeur Massage Bar (The Honeymooner)

7 days ago

This is the first time I have tried a product of this type. I like the smell of this massage bar - indulgent chocolate. And I like how it melts in your hands or on the skin you apply it to. In fact I like so much about it that I feel mean giving it such a low score. Yet the chocolate centre is a disaster. My bar had a big chocolate centre (I think they vary as they are made individually) and it …Read more

F.U.N Lacquer is a polish maker based in Singapore. Their polishes retail for around £13.50 (I bought mine though a UK stockist).

Drama was a part of their 6th Anniversary Collection. It's a lime green glitter polish. The pictures online look a lot more green, than the real thing (my picture is true to the real colour), which made me wonder if they may vary a little depending on the …

Polishes - Unlisted Brand - Nailberry Nail Lacquer - Number 69

10 days ago

Nailberry polishes are 5 free and oxygenated (breathable). They retail for around £14.50 a bottle (15ml). I managed to get mine for much less on eBay. Number 69 is a dusky dark blue, cream polish.

The bottle is tall and it resembles a miniature Chanel perfume bottle. The brush is rather thin. For me, the design of the bottle is what lets this polish down the most. Before you start …

Polishes - Ciaté London - Snatch

4.0
Created with Sketch.
fromHalyal

10 days ago

Snatch was a part of the latest Ciate Advent Calendar (2019). It is a red (true red) crelly polish.

As it is a crelly formula, there is a slight transparency to this polish, which, in fact, makes this polish look more juicy/less dull. It could be classed as a one-coater, but I used 2, to build up the opacity. All in all it's a nice red. My only criticism is that is it a little on a …

Polishes - China Glaze - China Rouge

2.0

1 month ago

China Rouge is from China Glaze X Collection 2007. It’s a dark red crelly polish.
In the bottle it looked such a deep, saturated colour, but I needed 3 coats to build it up, as the first 2 coats looked patchy. It’s incredibly runny, so I managed to flood most of my cuticles in the process. To add insult to injury it look forever to dry.
The only positive I can say is that China Rouge is …

Ploto is from Polished For Days (US Indi brand) Sea Nymphs 3.0 collection 2019. It is a lilac nail polish with bright pink to green shifting iridescent flakes.

It goes on quite sheer, but it is easy to build up. 3 coats gave me perfect opacity. It lasted exceptionally well.

This is one of those polishes that I really wanted to love, but it doesn't do much for my skin tone …

Polishes - Ciaté London - Gelology Nail Polish - Kiss Chase

3.0
Created with Sketch.
fromHalyal

1 month ago

Kiss Chase was a part of this year's Ciate Advent Calendar. It's a coral-pink, crelly polish.

The crelly formula makes this polish look 'juicy', but for me this polis/shade is just too washed out - I expected for the colour to pop more. It applies really well, streak free. It is quick drying and it lasted well on me.

It's an ok polish, but for me …

Polishes - A-England - Nail Polish: Mythicals Collection - Excalibur Renaissance

3.0
Created with Sketch.
fromHalyal

1 month ago

Excalibur Renaissance is a re-issue of the original Excalibur, from the Mythical collection. It's a silver, foil polish.

It is fully opaque in one coat. Due to the foil finish, it does leave the brushstrokes (you might want to try putting minimal pressure on the brush, which will reduce those).

Silver foil is not something that looks good with my skin tone, for that …

1 month ago

Total Eclipse was a part of this year's Ciate Advent Calendar (day 12). It has also been a part of their Advent Calendar last year. It's a stormy dark grey, cream polish. It the bottle the colour looks like there is a hint of purple, but it isn't visible on the nail.

The formula is very good - with careful application this could pass for a one-coater, however I applied the …
