Back from a break with bright polish

It’s been a while since I blogged! After I watched the Avengers, I had a chance to perform at the Royal Wedding, which was amazing but totally threw me out …

Avengers Infinity War nail art

Are you a fan of the Marvel superheroes? I went to see the latest film this week. I prefer to leave it a little while after the release – not too long to dodge spoilers. But then I get to sit in luxurious space with no one in front of me! I created some Avengers Infinity War nail art to complement my visit…read on!

Millefiori nail art inspired by Fabian Oefner

I’ve been having one of those weeks where I feel a bit blah. I’ve got no energy and I think I might be getting a cold. Do you ever feel like that? This week I revisited some old inspiration to create this Millefiori nail art based on artwork by Fabian Oefner.

Chanel Nuvola Rosa Swatch Neapolis Spring 2018

Welcome to the last of my three swatches from the Spring 2018 Neapolis collection. From Chanel Nuvola Rosa is a soft pink, and it definitely reminds me of strawberry gelato from Italy!

Although there is a fourth shade in this collection, it’s an orange leaning red which I couldn’t bring myself to buy. I have plenty of Chanel reds already! Check out Chanel Gitane – it’s not quite as orange-toned as Arancio Vibrante but it’s a good substitute.

Chanel Giallo Napoli swatch Neapolis Spring 2018

This week I’ve got the second of three swatches of Chanel’s Spring 2018 collection. It’s a bright yellow, and if you like sunny colours, you’ll love Chanel Giallo Napoli.  I also compare it to my swatch of Chanel Mimosa – it’s the battle of the yellows!

Chanel Verde Pastello swatch Neapolis Spring 2018

New, fun Chanel polishes are out, and you’re going to love these spring colours! I’m swatching them for you with a quick review, starting with Chanel Verde Pastello, a fresh turquoise creme.

My bottle of Verde Pastello has some weird wrinkles in the glass, just below the cap.

Pink Galaxy nail art

I’m not normally into pink. It’s not a go-to nail shade for me, and I actively avoid buying pink things! But I like to buck the trend once in a while, like with this Pink Galaxy nail art design. I was inspired by Anikibee’s design on Instagram for this one.

Pink Galaxy nail art definitely is a non-traditional look for this nail design!

Ella + Mila Polish at Professional Beauty 2018

I visited Professional Beauty 2018 in London this week, and I was really happy to find a brand on sale that I haven’t seen in the UK before.  Ella + Mila Polish is available in Target in the US, and online, but I found it on sale from a vegan beauty retailer here too! I bought some of their shades, and used two for this easy but effective design of a glitter gradient.

The grey-blue creme and copper glitter is a lovely contrast, and I was really impressed with the Ella + Mila polish formula.
