Barry M Molten Metal SS17* - Swatches and Review

Another day, another blog post. This time I'm really excited to show you the new additions to the Molten Metal collection by Barry M. They caused a storm on social media when they were previewed during Barry M's Press Day a month or so ago. I'm so pumped to try them out and tell you what I think. Big thanks to Barry M for sending me these lovelies to show you guys :D

Also, in today's post, I'm introducing THE FLAIL-O-METER! Just a little fun way to show you how EXCITED I was by the polish.

All of the swatches are three thin coats followed by a layer of top coat. The polishes feature Barry M's signature wide brush so application was pretty easy.

Roxanne Campbell First Impressions and Swatches*

For today's post, I've got swatches of two of Roxanne Campbell's nail lacquers, straight from her first collection of high quality nail polishes. For those unfamiliar, Roxanne Campbell is a well-known nail artist and manicurist who has worked at New York and London Fashion Week, as well as for a host of brands and publications. She has launched her own nail polish line, hoping to fill a gap in the market she saw for luxury, fashion forward colours. The polishes are 3-free and claim to be one coat wonders. I've got Expensive Taste (a wine/berry shade) and Stormy Weather (mid-grey) to show you guys and to fill you in on my first impressions.

Gatsby Inspired Nail Art feat. Meebox Feb 2017*

Another month, another Meebox to play with! This month's box featured a Great Gatsby theme, complete with appropriate glittery gold, black and a lovely purple polish, as well as nail stencils and gold caviar beads. I was in two minds when I first opened my box because I LOVED the polishes that were included (Little Ondine Copper Spark, Maggie Anne Pearl and Color Club Midnight Mulberry) but I'd never tried nail stencils or caviar beads before (even though I've had a bottle of Models Own gold caviar beads languishing in my helmer for years).

I tried to think of designs that would incorporate all elements and let's just say things didn't go to plan...

As a newcomer to both nail stencils and caviar beads, I was keen to use them but the universe was against me (or more likely my own ineptness...)
