piCture pOlish | Honeymoon

I'm back again with another piCture pOlish addition to my collection, Honeymoon. I fell in love with this polish back before Christmas but have only just got my hands on it in the last few weeks. It was created in collaboration with Manicurator, who was inspired by the beaches on her honeymoon. I love the background surrounding this polish and it really does have that tropical sea look to it.

Sinful Colors; Cinderella

Today I'm bringing you this beautiful polish from Sinful Colors. This is my first polish from this particular brand and so far I'm impressed. The brand is super affordable at around £1.99 per bottle (I think!) and the colour range is huge. I was somewhat disapointed in the brush but it's still manageable and the end product was worth it.

piCture pOlish | Grace

It's been such a long time since I last posted anything here. I decided to just take a break for a while over Christmas, but then I just couldn't bring myself to start swatching again. I do still have a slight back-log of old swatches to sort through but for today I wanted to show you one of the three piCture pOlish colours I treated myself to the other week. So without further ado, I present to you, Grace...

piCture pOlish; Bette Swatches

Well, it's been a long time... again. I've been so bad at keeping up with my blog since I got my first job. Recently I've been so busy, whilst fighting off a horrible cold, that blogging has been the last thing on my mind. Put that on top of the fact that I've slowly broken all of my nails down to little nubs from one thing and another and you'll see that blogging just hasn't been easy to get to.
Today, however, I have returned. Hopefully with some kind of regularity. Maybe. Anyway, today's my birthday and somehow (believe me, I'm not really sure how) I have turned 20. Of course on my birthday list were a couple of nail polish's that I've been eyeing up recently. I was ecstatic to open up a gift from my parents this morning to discover Bette from piCture pOlish. I am a huge lover of Bette Davis Eyes so this polish is already a winner with me for that, but I also have quite the fondness for blues so naturally this is a winner. Follow the jump to see the beautiful swatches...

Gradient Nails; Sparkling Sea

Recently I've had a thing for gradients and sparkles. While out shopping, I finally picked up China Glaze's Fairy Dust, a beautiful holo glitter, perfect for topping of a gradient. I then got this idea in my head to create a sparkly gradient. I ended up with three different shades of blue and a mint green and, lo, the sparkly sea gradient was born.

Barry M Silks AW14; Poppy

It's no secret that my favourite Barry M release this year was their stunning Silk collection back in the Spring. So you can imagine my delight while out shopping this morning when I came across three new deep jewel toned shades added to the collection in Superdrug. Now, I could have so very easily grabbed all three, however, Boots currently have a buy one get one half price offer on. Sadly they didn't have it in store yet so their website is my BFF. I couldn't resist picking at least one and this shade captured my heart completely.

Barry M AW14 Gellys; Spicy Stripes

Last week, whilst in transition between nail colours, I wanted to make my Barry M Chilli mani last a little bit longer. I ended up with this idea in my head of combining it with Mustard using striping tape to create this Autumn "spicy" mani.
