Elune by Emily - Swatches & Review

 *PR Sample*

Hello! Today I'm going to be sharing swatches from one of the newest UK indies on the block, Elune by Emily! I say one of the newest but I think they've actually been around since April, I've just never got round to trying any polishes! Thankfully that has now all changed after the lovely Emily asked if I could swatch some of her latest releases and I was very quick to say yes! For those that don't know, Elune by Emily is a UK indie polish brand run by Emily from @nailmeright on Instagram. Over the last few months she's created lots of different beautiful polishes all with female names. The names are all inspired by a variety of things from Emily's life e.g. books, films and music, which I think is really lovely! We've all got to appreciate a bit of girl power right?! Read on to find out more about the polishes I was sent.

Danglefoot Polish - Doctor Who Collaboration Collection

 *PR Sample*

Good evening! It's been a little while I know but I've been working an absolute ton. Gotta get all that money to spend on Christmas right?! Or what I really mean is clothes and nail polish! Anyway, as always I am returning with something super exciting. For a while now Hayley from Danglefoot Polish has talked about doing a Doctor Who collection and I was lucky enough to be asked to collaborate on it as I love it so much. Obviously I said yes and a few months ago we really started thinking about what we wanted in it. Do you want to see what we came up with? Of course you do so read on!

UberChic Beauty - Lovely Leaves 02

Hi everyone! Today I have a short little post that features possibly the best nail art I have done for a long time. It's been a while since I've done some stamping and thought "I never want to take this off" but today it happened! Last year I bought the UberChic Beauty Lovely Leaves 02 plate from Nail Art UK and I think I only got round to using it once, if that. I've now used it several times over the last week and I am so glad I have it! Now that we're in October it officially feels like autumn, despite the high temperatures and sunny weather we suddenly seem to have again, so this is definitely the perfect plate!

XO Balm - Testing & Review

*PR Sample*
Hello! I have something a little bit different to share today which I'm really excited about. It's been a long time coming thanks to the craziness that was the last couple of months but we got there eventually! I was lucky enough to be sent XO Balm which is a moisturising balm that treats dry, rough, sensitive or irritated skin with an effective combination of 100% natural ingredients. As I've been so busy my hands have been seriously neglected so I knew this was something I really needed. The question is...did it actually help??

De'Lish Nails London - Swatches & Review

 *PR Sample*
Why is it that the weekends always go so fast? I haven't worked since Tuesday and I'm not working until tomorrow night but even so...this weekend has flown by! It's been a bit of a mad couple of weeks with starting my job, my graduation (more on that in a future post!) and some other personal things but hopefully things will start to settle down now. My nails are slowly growing back after I had to chop them down for training so that always helps with my motivation/inspiration. Anyway, for tonights post I have swatches and a review of a new-to-me brand. I was kindly asked to swatch some of De'Lish Nails London new collection and I was super excited when these three beauties came through my letterbox.

'Ard As Nails - Autumn 2018 Cremes

*PR Sample*
Hello lovely people! I'm back again today with another swatch and review post for 'Ard As Nails. Well, not for 'Ard As Nails as Kat doesn't ask me to write a blog post, only to swatch the polishes. I just think they're so fab that they deserve their own blog post! I received these beauties a couple of weeks ago and the shades made me soo ready for autumn. Although I do love a good neon and bright polish for summer, I just adore all the colours that you get with this lovely change of season. It's the 1st of September so it's officially autumn now too yeah?! Let's take a look at what new additions we have to The Creme Collection!

Barry M - Molten Metal Collection '18

Hi everybody! If you follow me on Instagram then you know I've had a totally crazy month or two hence the lack of posts! I have finally submitted my dissertation so will be officially graduating in September, had my birthday last week so now I'm at the ripe old age of 22 (woo!), been on a little trip to Edinburgh with my lovely boyfriend and next week I start my new job! I can't believe how quickly it's come round and I'm so excited. Today I found out that I will be working on the specialist personality disorder ward which I imagine is going to be a challenge but so interesting and rewarding. Anyway, as exciting as that is for me, I'm sure you're here to read about nails so let's crack on shall we? Today I have the four new additions to the Molten Metal collection from Barry M. Read on to find out more!

'Ard As Nails - Summer 2018 Cremes

*PR Sample*
Hi! It's another Wednesday and fortunately I actually have another post. This week has become slightly crazy as we decided I would be moving out on Friday so now I'm frantically packing the past four years of uni life up and wondering how on earth I've accumulated so much stuff! I'm incredibly excited to be going home though as I get to be with my gorgeous dog again and I'll be 20 minutes up the road from my boyfriend rather than 2 hours away. I just really hate packing...a lot. And don't even get me started on all the polish I have to pack yet haha! Anyway, today I'm going to be sharing the five new additions to The Creme Collection from 'Ard As Nails. Let's get stuck right in!

Bundlemonster Kawaii Emoji - Banana Nail Art

Hi everyone! Today I have some nail art that is a little more silly and lighthearted than usual. I was trying to do some nail stuff the other day and it was just all going wrong and nothing seemed to be working. In the end I just kind of gave up with it and threw my hands in the air. Eventually I went and had a rummage through my stamping plates, picked one I hadn't used yet and came up with a new, but simple idea. I went for something bright as I clearly needed the cheering up and I've been using a lot of greens and blues lately. The funniest thing was, as silly as it was, I ended up loving the mani and didn't want to take it off!

Wikkid Polish - Amethyst Review

Hey guys! Is it just me or is July speeding away? This will only be a short post from me today as I'm busy trying to do my dissertation and as the internet decided to crash earlier, I haven't done as much as I planned. Back in October/November I won a free polish from Wikkid Polish and I'm only just getting round to using it. Awful I know! I got to choose which one I wanted and although I had a list a mile long, I settled on a purple because as we know, you can never go wrong with purple!
