What Nail Polish Do You Wear the Most? – Beauty Article

When you love something so much that you have THREE BOTTLES OF IT… I lined up all of my colorful nail polishes to find out which one had the least amount of product, but they all looked the same, go figure! Apparently you need to go through a lot to put a dent in one nail polish bottle. I’m betting this particular honor goes to my fave clear top coat from the Essie Gel Couture line. I wear it not…

More #MismatchedManis: Essie Gels Coutures and Sally Hansen Miracle Gels in Blues and Brights – Beauty Article

May 18th, 2020 by Karen Leave a Comment Sally Hansen Miracle Gels in Fish-Teal Braid and Mintage Mismatched manis should come with a warning: once you start, ya can’t stop. At least that’s been the case on my end of the keyboard! I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to go back to wearing a single color on both hands ever again. 🙂 Sally Hasen Miracle Gel in Apollo You Anywhere and Lemon Heaven Essie Gel Couture in Beau-tie…

KURE Bazaar Spring/Summer 2020 | British Beauty Blogger – Beauty Article

[unpaid/ad/samples] I really look forward to new releases from KURE Bazaar – they’ve got such an eye for colour editing and seem to catch seasonal moods really well.

This selection is just beautiful for spring with an edgy pastel theme – the first one I want to put on my own nails is the grey shade.…

Nails Inc What The Shell? – Beauty Article

[unpaid/ad/affiliate/sample] I think I’ve got one more nail set to show you from my catch up with Nails Inc after this one but they’re a very prolific brand so I’ve no doubt summer will bring even more.

Essence Jelly Nail Polish Remover – Beauty Article

[unpaid/ad/sample] I’m sticking to the hand and nail theme today and I’ve loved using the Essence Jelly Nail Polish Remover with it’s strange gin-meets-pineapple-meets-paintstripper scent! Essence Jelly Nail Polish Remover I’m flagging it especially because of the jelly format – it works exactly the same as a regular remover but is rather thicker and as someone who has tipped over their nail polish remover more times than I care to mention, this gel formulation gives you those vital extra seconds…

Nails Inc Keep It Tonal – Beauty Article

[unpaid/ad/affiliate/sample] Anyone remember the ‘mannequin hands’ nail trend a few years ago where nails were exactly matched to skin tone for a shop mannequin seamless look?

Nails Inc Keep It Tonal Shades from left to right are: Mansion House Street, Beech Gardens, French Ordinary Court and Chamomile Street. Nails Inc…

Mavala Chill & Relax Spring 2020 – Beauty Article

[unpaid/ad/samples/affiliate] It’s a shame I didn’t have the sunny day for photography these spring toned polishes deserve but I’m wearing Blue Siesta right now and love the injection of mid-bright colour. Mavala Chill & Relax Spring What’s so nice about these delicate shades is that they’re fully pigmented but pared back on tone. Based on nature shades – think neutrals injected with just the right amount of colour – they’re kind of where we are right now in the calendar with dots…

Jessica Spring 2020 Nail Colours – Beauty Article

[unpaid/ad/sample] I flagged a few weeks ago that icy blue for nails is a spring thing this year. I like the idea of it well enough but just not sure about the reality! I find it always the case that when edgier shades look challenging on fingers they can be quite at home on toes so perhaps that’s where this blue hue will end up. So, above from right to left you can see Desert Dust, Headliner and Petal Power…

Saturday Surfing, February 8th, 2020 – Beauty Article

Essie Expressie Nail Polish in Second Hand, First Love Welcome to the weekend, my friend! Time to rest and recharge your batteries (hopefully!). For me, that means painting my paws, because when my paws are painted, the stars are in alignment. Mercury avoids retrograde.

CND Vinylux 2in1 | British Beauty Blogger – Beauty Article

[samples/affiliate] Spring nails are starting to appear (got to warn you, there’s a lot of duck egg blue on the horizon) and first off the block is CND Vinylux 2in1 with a colour at one end and the weekly top coat at the other. CND Vinylux 2in1 In my experience, Vinylux is the nearest thing to gel nails that you can get without actually putting gel formulas. The weekly top coat is the thing that keeps it all gripped to…

UKA 24:25 Nail Oil | British Beauty Blogger – Beauty Article

[sample] As a general rule, my nails are in good nick these days thanks to supplements which have made such a difference. However, in about November, they just had some kind of break-down, flaking and snapping off. Consequently, I haven’t tested any nail polish other than on my toes since then because my talons haven’t been in a fit state. I can’t put it down to any one thing other than being ill a few months ago – I can’t…

3 Tips to Keep Your Manicure Chip-Free and Fabulous – Beauty Article

Just say no to chips. Back in 2008, The New York Times tried to make chipped nails a thing. Yeah…I’m not about that life. I’m all for purposefully messy hair (fun buns 4 life!), but a messy mani gets a HARD PASS. I’ll take my manicures neat and tidy, thank you very much, with a side of “no chips on tips, please.” There are a couple things that make it easier to live a chip-free nail life, like 1) finding…

How to Boost Beauty From the Inside with Swisse – Beauty Article

This blog post is sponsored by iHerb.com. I keep it real. All opinions are 100% mine! I’ve been blogging for over 10 years, and I have learned something important. There are so many lotions and potions that are supposed to give you beautiful hair, skin and nails, but if you aren’t healthy on the inside, they can only do so much. Getting “healthy” is a complex equation that involves diet, exercise and lifestyle. I’m not here to tell you what…

CND Prismatic Collection | British Beauty Blogger – Beauty Article

[productsample] I actually couldn’t believe my eyes when I opened up this collection.

The very next morning, exactly the right blue appeared! So the old one has to come off and I can’t wait to get the new CND shade, Dimensional, on. CND Prismatic Collection Actually, it’s…
