Mysterious Green Shimmer Polish: Rain Forest by Revlon.

Just look at the green shimmer running through this eye catching polish! It certainly caught my eye when walking round the shop, it was a see it and need to buy it experience for sure. Surprisingly this colour polish isn't a normal go-to, the colour green in my nail polish collection is definitely smaller than others. But the iridescent effect the shimmer has just had to be tried out, and here's the results:

Going For Bold: Coral by Barry M

It's a Barry M polish however it's not a Gelly Hi-Shine polish today! Instead it's the regular polishes which are as good as the others but with an amazing shade range including some bright ones. This one is called Coral and it's a tad bright, different from the more pastel corals out there on the market... as you'll see in these photographs:

Last Minute Adjustment: Purple Reflects! and Snow Globe

This polish looks very much like a going out on the town combination, but reassurances it's not. When painting Purple Reflects! on to the nails it just didn't seem quite right like there was something missing, in the end it was decided the manicure needed glitter. Snow Globe was chosen as there was a need to test this one out as the other Sally Hansen glitters had been so successful. It wasn't sticking to the polishes list that had been created, the deviation was worth it!

A Different Textured Polish: Barry M's Atlantic Road!

It's probably well known by you guys that texturized polish was heavily doubted by myself until the discovery of the Sugar Coat collection by Sally Hansen which changed all perceptions of the textured effect. Making it unbeatable and unstoppable. Barry M just might have managed to catch up with this lovely blue pastel polish, that they admittedly released a while ago but it's come to Addicted To Nails... now. Here's some of the lovely looking swatches:

Neon Alert: Revlon's Neon Nail Art


Neon nails seem to be the in thing at the moment, as they seem to do brilliant things to your tan - even if you haven't got one which is definitely my situation tan-wise! So seeing these cute little nail art pens up on the shelf was an opportunity not to be missed by the saver in me as they came from one of those poundshops. In addition to the fact that there's no other nail art pens in the stash yet. There probably is colours similar though, shall we find out there bright neon names? ...

Weekly Update No.3

Another week has passed, another weekly update of nail polishes being used is due for you guys. This week it's been toned down a little so that some darker colours are getting some usage as well as to make the brighter colours stand out. Oh and a heads up, that these weekly updates will be ending in the near future as the weekly schedule will be changing. (Sorry! It's got to happen.) Shall we skip onto the polishes then?

Another brand feature: Essence is coming!

It's going to be appearing on this little blog, after a few colours just happened to be picked up whilst out in town the other day after venturing into Wilkinson's to check they were there and they were! Aren't these just so cute? They all look lovely colours for the summer season that is currently upon us especially the Sparkle Sand effect one, can't wait to see if any of the other 'trend' polishes are released locally.

NOTD: B-right On! by Sally Hansen and Boom Box Black by Maybelline

A week ago a collection of polishes were promised to be swatched upon this little blog and here another nail of the day combination is. Sadly not all of the polishes promised will be up really soon as someone forgot to photograph all the lovely painted nails... so they'll have to be done again in the near future which isn't a problem as they were all lovely! Let's get on to today's nails that have been done properly...

Weekly Update No.2

It's returned, the weekly update of polishes about to be used. Last week this post seemed to be very popular, being nosy into the polishes nail bloggers actually use compared to the featured blog posts. It's something which would be popular with myself. Yet this week there will be photographs of all the swatches as I won't be able to forget like last week! Right onto the individual polishes:

Bright and textured: Candy Corn by Sally Hansen.

Many other posts on this collection can be found here. Today's post is on the beauty called 260 Candy Corn which is a bright orange but not quite neon, let's see some more:
