Merry Christmas and hope you all have a Happy New Year! Are you all stuffed from Christmas eatings? Well rest comes in a form of a lovely little update of what the nails looked like in the festive season. It was an oldie, it's Revlon's Emerald City which is a lovely shimmery metallic green that sparkles in the Christmas lighting. Follow me for more...

Hopefully your eyes are still intact after seeing this vibrant yellow and orange polish! Believe it or not, this polish on your nails will grow on you as I also was in the 'this colour can't work camp'. Yet here it is on the nails! This is yet another fabulous polish from Revlon's Colourstay collection, if only it was on the British high-street. It's called Sorbet which definitely reminds you of a lovely peach and passion fruit sorbet dessert. Want another scoop? Come through for more...

It's just occurred that we've recently had another polish on the blog with Rose within the title, but I can confirm that they are completely different and lovely polishes. So don't get them mixed up or you'd be missing out on both their brilliances! Featured today is one of the Revlon Colourstay polishes that have been recently accumulated within the local Poundshops, it's a lovely muted and mature pink. There's more of it's loveliness through this way...

Sadly, it has to be admitted that this little beauty has been in the stash a while yet not appeared on the blog. It's been on Instagram here. Maybe it's just been forgotten under it's sheer brilliance, well here it is now and hopefully it will impress you all. It's Barry M's newest Aquarium Collection release called Persian, the colour is a mix of a deep purple and a bronze/gold when it catches the corner of the eye. This happens a lot, have a sneak through for some more photographs.

Sally Hansen's Insta-Dry collection is always in fashion here, seeing as they are always pretty colours and very easy to apply! Therefore when they reappeared within the local Poundshop, a few polishes just had to be 'selected for review on the blog'. Just kidding, only for my own personal polish collection. Today's polish is a lovely green and mix colour mix that's a metallic shimmer overall. It's called Jet Set Jade.

Yet another Essence nail polish is making an appearance, they are just too likeable. This one is no exception. It's called English Rose, it's not your typical pink polish. Instead of being a bright pink or a baby pink, it's a mature pink. You're probably thinking that you've heard this all before (probably from Addicted To Nails...) but here's the picture proof and hopefully that will convince the disbelievers.

Today's post is a return of a favourite that's been rather neglected by Addicted To Nails... recently as other new and sparkly polishes have been placed above the needs of this little monthly link up... That's right, it's the Polish Party! This month's theme is Autumn and the Weather which was planned to be an excuse to try my stamping plate for the first time yet they weren't related at all. Therefore it's the last Barry M Autumn release polish that has not graced the little blog, follow through for more lovely photographs.

Putting this post together has definitely reminded myself of NYC's Peacock as I thought they looked really similar, then looked at the actual post and realised they aren't very similar in colour at all. Maybe loosing my nail polish colour radar! Anyway onto today's polish, it's Barry M's Kiwi as it's been show a few times in some nail art but not by itself. And it should be, so here it is all on it's lonesome:

Ever wanted a polish, then decided you don't need to buy it, realise you want it and it's sold out? Well this is what happened when buying this polish called Break Through. It was seen whilst having a casual stroll in Wilkinson's and then I convinced myself that it wasn't needed. Every time that I returned to actually pick it up, it was sold out! Luckily it's now firmly in the stash, here's the results.

Recently natural or light brown coloured polishes have been a favourite as they don't stand out too much on your nails, yet there's been a little bit of a rut seeing as only Maybelline's Mauve Kiss has been the only one used. So when I was picking up some NYC polishes, I thought about trying a new natural nail polish by them. Here it is, it's called Park Ave and there loads more photographs below.

This is a blog post I thought wouldn't ever happen, yet the stash of nail polishes has grown considerably even the green section. Wondering if there will ever be a best of yellow polishes... Probably not, even I don't love yellow that much. Do you guys have a colour that's not heavily feature in you polish collection? Anyway here's all the green polishes that are loved from the massive polish stash, follow me for more information.

This polish is just a tad yellow, this set-up definitely shows it to it's best. Surprisingly this polish was one that was picked up due to the fact that there was a 3 for 2 offer in boots and wanted to try something different. Actually putting it on the nails was put off time and time again, then when it was actually done - it's impressed! Somehow it looks okay with my skin tone for once... find some more reassuring photographs below:

In the midst of all the autumn coloured polishes, here's a little refreshment from NYC's Spring Tulip polish. Instead of autumn browns, purples and navies here's a nice bright coral that's got heavy hints of pink to lighten up your day. This polish is still available before you ask whether it is, I wouldn't be mean on purpose and show you a polish that's recently been discontinued. Let's get onto some more photographs of this cute polish.

Well they've been appearing recently already, so this is just a little overview of the collection that I may have gone a little crazy for in the poundshops. (You've already counted all the money spent in Poundworld then?) It's Revlon's Colourstay collection which comes in a variety of colours and normally retails for £6.99. Ouch! Here's some close-ups of the polishes themselves:

This polish is just SO pretty, why did I leave testing Barry M's autumn collection for so long... guess we will never know. At least it's finally been done in autumn so we'll get full use out of it right up until spring arrives. The pretty polish before your eye is Chilli by Barry M as part of the autumn collection 2014, there's more photographs of this pretty polish further on in this blog post...

It's been a while since the Polish Party has been participated in! Don't know why they've been missed but loved making this simple manicure that's suitable for this months theme. You'll have probably guessed it by the look of the nails, it's Halloween themed. Time to dust off the old crackle polishes and give them a whirl in deep dark Halloween colours.

It's almost here and it's the best time of the year, do you know what it is?! It's the season of autumn and it's the best because you get to layer up in loads of snuggly clothes so you're nice and toastie. Also autumn has all the best colours as well, they're all nice deep and rich colours, today's going to be the top picks of polishes worn this season. Come and see...

It's such a nice neutral colour! Even though it does look a little plain from the offset, it definitely is very elegant on the nails making it very acceptable to wear to a place of work. Sadly this isn't the case for me as it's plain nails only - a girl can dream though? Shall we move onto some more sophisticated photographs of the brilliant polish named Chai.

Aren't these just lovely colours for autumn, not too in your face. Nice and simple, they are from the lovely Barry M as part of the Autumn collection. You may have noticed that the whole Autumn collection isn't all here, there's one missing seeing as it'll probably never be worn again so there's no need to purchase it. (That's a new mantra.) Anyway there are five others from the collection so there isn't load missing, let's get onto more photographs of these polishes.

Hasn't it been ages since there's been an entry to a nail polish challenge, for some reason today was entry a design day. It's been brilliant so far, you may be seeing some more entries for the Pick and Mix Challenge as it's so easy. Just pick which weeks you want to enter, maybe give it a go yourself? Anyway onto the actual nail polish, it features a texture brand that cannot be beaten. Sally Hansen's Sugar Coat collection! Follow through for some more lovely photographs:

NYC isn't a new brand to myself, it's been tested before and the results from the polish which only cost £1.79 have been very unexpected. Other brands have been shining brighter than NYC on previous shopping trips, so it's been ignored. But yesterday NYC (Is that what it's called? Or is it something else...) was calling out and a few where picked up on the buy one get one half price deal. Here's the very pleasing results:

The lovely looking and hopefully great smelling polishes from Revlon are appearing some time soon... There's been some instagram hints about these little bottles for some time now, but now they will be gracing the nails instead of just in nail polish bottle pictures. The smells range from Autumn Spice to Spun Sugar so they'll be something for everyone, shall we take a closer look?
Tuesday, 7 October 2014
They've been found! You thought maybe I'd see less of them now that I've moved to university but they've been weaselled out - it's the poundshops. So you'll still be seeing regular updates on the little bargains which have been located, and today's no exception with Rimmel's Luna Love from the Space Dust collection. It's so sparkly and pretty.

Three wave manicures are just that easy! Sorry they've appeared a lot recently on the blog but there's no real brains required behind this nail art design. The only thing you need is three nice colours. Yet there is a difference in today's version of the three wave manicure as there may be some accent nails which contain dots, follow me if you'd like to see some more...
