Grace-full Nail Polish ‘What a Girl Wants’ collection

It’s been a while, so long in fact that I am now in a different decade! Today though I have the 2nd birthday collection from Grace-full Nail Polish, a lovely Australian indie brand. The collection is called ‘What a Girl Needs (the follow up to ‘What a Girl Wants’) and consists of 6 polishes that were derived form suggestions from the Grace-full Facebook fan group.

Powder Perfect Egyptology Part one – The Lower Kingdom

Powder Perfect Lower Kingdom

This collection makes for one hell of a sparkly post! This is part one of Powder Perfect’s Egyptology series – The Lower Kingdom – a set of five super sparkly glitters.

You can read more about Jacinta’s inspiration for the collection here, and I’ll never get bored of saying how much I admire her sources of inspiration that go way beyond over-done pop culture, but I’ll crack on with the sparkly pictures now!

The latest live-action film from Disney is Kenneth Branagh’s ‘Cinderella’ with the lovely Lily James (of Downton Abbey fame) and Richard Madden aka Robb Stark from Game of Thrones – he’s no Jon Snow but he’ll do. Morgan Taylor have a cute collection of pastel pinks and blues out for the official Cinderella release, and I have 3 to show you.

Pretty Serious Rooftop Soiree Collection

Pretty Serious Rooftop Soiree

I know, I know, it’s been a while. Lots going on outside the world of blogging for me lately, but I did swatch these around Christmas (as my nail length shows – they’re now pretty short) but have only just found some time to write a post for them! The polishes in this post are the offerings from Pretty Serious Cosmetics for the festive season of 2014, the Rooftop Soiree collection (fun fact: I mistype ‘roof’ as ‘foof’ every time).

A VHTF Illamasqua gradient – ‘Destiny’ and ‘Propaganda’

I’ve been dying to show this manicure, but PR commitments have gotten in the way a little (I’m not complaining), but in the spirit of my post in which I explained my desire to blog for myself and myself alone, I’m posting this now because I’m sick of looking at it in my backlog! I have already posted about Illamasqua’s Australian exclusive ‘Destiny‘, and when I picked up a discontinued colour called ‘Propaganda’ I knew a gradient would be happening.

Swatch & Review: Barry M Glitterati

Barry M Autumn/Winter 2014 Glitterati nail polish on pollypolish.com

I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with glitter polishes. I am a bit of a magpie, so I do gravitate towards sparkly and shiny things. I’ve never been completely sold with glitter on my nails though, possibly partly due to the removal aspect but I think I also tend to prefer wearing more subtle or sophisticated polishes. I’m also not a fan of the ‘lets throw a bunch of glitter in a bottle and give it a cool name, that’ll sell well’ approach.
