Firstly, last chance to enter my giveaway which closes tomorrow click here if you have not yet entered.
Today I have a Butter London polish to show you - Two Fingered Salute. I usually pass Butter London polishes becuase of the price tag although the unusual colour of this one and slightly naughty name won me over.
This is four coats of Two Fingered Salute (yes four). The formula on this was quite sheer and on the thin side. Two fingered Salute is a muted green with copper flecks. Very unusual, reminds me of a flecked duck egg.
Price? I got mine of ebay for £10 which is slightly cheaper then how much it retails on Butter London where polishes are £12.
Yeah I know, I've been on the missing. But I haven't disappeared completely. I still have lots of new polishes to show you, I just have to find the time to swatch. Today I have one of the Metal Flip Polishes from Miss Sporty - Fiery Blaze. I have the collection in my giveaway here.
This is 3 coats of Fiery Blaze. A blue based duochrome which switches from purple/green/gold. Love Love Love this, its my favourite from the collection. The colours are are a bit like Orly space cadet but smooth rather then glass flecked, I'll have to do a comparison with Revlon Kiwizing, as I think its similar. Prize £1.99 each from Miss Sporty Online or Superdrugs in store.
As promised here is a new Giveaway! A show of my appreciation for you all, my lovely readers. Closes 11th November and open internationally. I've been able to pick up a few new products such as one of the MUA Nail constellations in Gemini, Miss Sporty Metal Flip collection and of course the cult classic Gosh's holographic polish. Hope you like the prizes.
Sorry I've been so neglectful of my blog recently. Its not motivation, its the long hours at work which has been making it difficult for me to find time to swatch. However I have a giveaway coming up this weekend so stay tuned!
Here is the new collection from Topshop - Dark Shade Of Nude. Totally has that 'Buffy the Vampire' feel.
Available now from Topshop. As always, Topshop bump the price up for their limited collections, £6.50 per Polish, Eyeshadow £16, Lips £9, Mascara £10.
I have one of China Glazes new Halloween polishes to show you today, part of the Wicked Collection. I don't have lots of glitters in my collection as I find them a bit of a chore to wear, removal always seems to be a hassle. I'm a sucker for Halloween collections so I got over my glitter snobbery for this collection :-) This is Glitter Goblin.
This is two coats of Glitter Goblin over Misa's Bourbon on the Rocks. Glitter goblin is a glitter polish (obviously) containing brown, orange and holographic particles in a clear base. I haven't used a topcoat in these shots but I suspect these would have looked much better if I had. I picked my bottle up at Olympia Beauty but I think these are widely available now.
A few press shots of some of the new releases in the UK. The Duochrome/Multichrome trend has finally landed here. Its only a few years behind everywhere else.
God Save the Queen
Aurora Borealis, Beetle Wings and Fiery Blaze
Topshop also have duochromes/multichromes some of which I've featured on my blog here. Barry M also have a couple of shades, Models Own have the Beetle Juice Collection and H & M has the shade Lady Luck. Also not forgetting Nail Pop's Kimono. So if your struggling to find polishes to curb your duochrome fever and missed out on the infamous Chanel Peridot there are a few places that now stock this type of polish. Hallelujah.
Autumn is most definitely here, not that Summer was about much! One thing I love is Autumn/Winter polish collections. The rich warm earthy shades are my favourite. On my trip to Olympia Beauty couple of weeks back I picked up a few polishes. This one caught my eye in the Misa stand. I didn't realise it was part of Misa's new High Society Winter Collection. I wanted to kick myself that I didn't check any of the others out. This is Bourbon on the Rocks.
This is two coats of Bourbon on the Rocks. A dark red orange shimmer. Reminds me of leather, dark antique red wood and tobacco. Very rich and warm. Application was flawless. I think I've found my Autumn staple. I think the High Society Collection is out now and available. Amazon UK has the collection but I think you might be able to find it a bit cheaper elsewhere.
Hope you've all had an amazing weekend. Today I have a stunning polish to show you all. If you have not seen swatches of this already where have you been! Ninja Polish, who retails imported polishes have a few shades of their own, this is one of them, Color Changing Garnet.
This is one coat of Color Changing Garnet over W7 Black. Its a duochrome/multichrome glitter which flashes from red/gold/orange/green. It's pretty amazing, good coverage in one coat. I got so many compliments wearing this. I also go Alexandrite which looks stunning on. Available from Ninja Polish for $11. It's currently out of stock but you can sign up for alerts for when its available.
