My top 5 Summer nail polishes.

Wednesday, 24 July 2013

Hi guys, since Summer has well and truly kicked in I thought it's the perfect time to do a  post on my top 5 nail polishes for summer. It was really hard to narrow it down to just 5 so let's get started and see which nail polishes made the cut!






 Essie Mint Candy Apple  - My  favourite and the shade that started my love for mint colours. I absolutely  love this colour and it is the most perfect mint shade you'll ever see! Definitely a cult favourite amongst nail lovers and a must-have for me. This is all also one of the few Essie colours that I own that is easy to apply and opaque in two coats. Mint Candy Apple looks great all year round and is a shade that suits all skin-tones. If you don't own this shade how have you coped without it? Get it in your life now lol!

Essie Cute as a Button-  A beautiful coral-pink shade that is the epitome of summer! It's a fun shade that you won't stop wearing all summer long and is the perfect mani and pedi colour. The formula isn't the best with it being runny but I don't mind the extra effort because the colour is just too darn pretty and who can resist a good coral nail polish? Certainly not me! Definitely a summer staple.

Essie Splash of Grenadine - This is a pretty pink/purple shade that looks great on the nails but just as equally nice on the toes. It's a very soft and feminine shade that works well all year round. This is another Essie nail polish that is easy to apply, two coats does the trick and then you're good to go! It dries to a glossy finish so you don't need to bother with a top coat which is good because I haven't found a great one yet.

Barry M Gelly Hi- Shine Nail Paint in Grapefruit- Grapefruit is a bright almost neon pink that looks super pretty on the nails. I just love this bright pink shade because it's the perfect girly nail colour! It has a glossy finish so you can skip the top coat. However It is gloopy and comes out a bit thick but at £3.99 at least it doesn't break the bank!

Essie In The Cab-ana  -This is a new shade that was released for the Resort 2013 Collection. A bright aqua blue colour that reminds me of a swimming pool! The most eye-catching out of the bunch and the perfect holiday colour. It's such a stunning shade that you will not be able to stop staring at your nails and if you love your bright blue shades then this is right up your street! 

So that was my nail polish picks for Summer! What are your favourites?


Review: Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter In Wild Watermelon

Tuesday, 16 July 2013


 Recently I have been obsessed with the Revlon Lip Butter in the shade "Wild Watermelon", a gorgeous      coral-red shade that at the moment is my go-to colour for summer!  Wild Watermelon is one of the new  limited edition shades that was released for spring/summer alongside  Juicy Papaya, Sorbet and Pink  Lemonade. Despite it looking shockingly bright it is a wearable colour because it's semi-sheer and not a 
 full  on opaque red,so it's great for someone who wants to rock a red lip.


The lip butters are a mix of a lipstick and a lip balm with the shine of a gloss which is my kind of formula! The consistency is creamy so it glides easily on the lips. The staying power isn't amazing and I didn't expect it to be considering the formulation however, I don't mind whipping it out to reapply every now and again.I adore the Chanel-esque packaging with the quilted design making it look oh so chic! It's also great that the cap is clear so that you can see the colour of the lip butter.


The only downside is that in the heat the lip butter melts easily and it actually broke off in a large chunk after a couple of swatches so that was disappointing to say the least so just be careful about that but overall I love this lip butter and may pick up Sorbet next as it's calling my name.

 Have you tried any of the new Revlon Lip Butters? What's your thoughts?
