Beauty uk - Printworks

Today I have a swatch to share of, what I'm ashamed to admit is my first ever textured polish! I picked up Beauty uk's Grit FX polish in Printworks from the clothing store Select for £3.49.

Printworks is a turquoise blue polish with, well, a gritty texture!

This polish surprised me as instead of being a smooth creme that dries textured, it actually contains almost like little sand particles. That being said, it still applies really nicely, as if it was a creme. 

It dries super quick and is ready to go in a matter of a few minutes, even for two coats.

This may have been my first textured polish, but it definitely won't be the last!

Check out for the full range :)

IDC Color - #25

Just a quickie today!! A few weeks ago (I know I've been slack!) I went on holiday to Spain, and I couldn't help myself. I came across a little beauty shop whilst I was souvenir shopping and I picked up a couple of little pretties!

The one I'm sharing today is by a brand called IDC Color and is number 25 (I think, because I can't find a name.)

A lovely rosy pink creme that was lovely to apply and opaque in two coats - 

Polish was only 1.50 Euro's, another reason to not say no :)

Models Own Velvet Goth - Valerian + Absinthe

So I finally gave in and got my hands on a couple of Models Own Velvet Goth polishes. I have to admit after seeing various swatches online I wasn't too impressed, but I'm so glad I purchased these!

The idea of these polishes is that they have a matte 2D finish whilst remaining sparkly, and I must say they really do achieve this. I'll let the polishes speak for themselves :)

The colours I got are called Valerian and Absinthe -

I'm wearing two coats in the photo's.

These are, by a long way, my favourite ever Models Own polishes. They are quite tricky to apply as with them being matte, they do dry pretty quickly, but that is my only grumble!

I love the lids of the polishes too, as they have the velvet texture to go with the Velvet Goth name and they feel and look super luxurious.

Absinthe is my fave out the two colours, but I think I may have to get the rest of the collection :)

Polishes cost £5 from

NYX - Moonwalk

Sorry for the super quick post today, I'm in such a rush!!!

Today, I have a swatch of NYX Moonwalk to share. My first NYX polish, and I love it! Moonwalk has a deep brown/green base packed full of small and large hexagonal silver glitter pieces. So much fun :) I'm wearing three coats in the pics -

Sinful Colors - Thimbleberry with Nail Junkie accent

If you follow me on Twitter or Google+, you may have seen that a little while ago I showed my mini Sinful Colors haul from Boots. I purchased 5 colours and I have two to share with you today. They are Thimbleberry and Nail Junkie -

I'm wearing two coats of Thimbleberry in the photo's. I then added one coat of Nail Junkie as an accent - 

As Nail Junkie has a jelly base, I really like how the pink was transformed into a gorgeous deep raspberry colour which really brings out the blue glitter.

Sinful Colors are available at and are £1.99 each.

PR - Chanel Collection Rouge Allure Moire

Today I have yet more PR from the fabulous folk at Chanel. The third collection from Le Rouge Chanel is called Collection Rouge Allure Moire and is available from September 27th.


There are as many ways of being vibrant as there are women, and as many ways of showing it as there are CHANEL lipsticks.

In 2013, LE ROUGE CHANEL now offers three different collections:

- the COLLECTION AVANT-PREMIÈRE DE CHANEL opens a new chapter in the ROUGE COCO and ROUGE COCO SHINE saga to reveal bold, unpredictable and boundless femininity.

- the COLLECTION RÉVÉLATION DE CHANEL reveals the multiple facets of the LÈVRES SCINTILLANTES gloss and sparkling femininity.

- the COLLECTION ROUGE ALLURE MOIRÉ showcases an unforgettably bold femininity.
When you decide how to live your life, wear LE ROUGE CHANEL, and if you want to live it with allure and intensity, wear ROUGE ALLURE!


With an irresistibly feminine flick of the hand, ROUGE ALLURE opens with just one click to reveal one colour, one signature and daring attitude. It continues its take on intensity in a new collection that captures the opulence of fabrics with moiré reflections, exploring the effects of light.


The COLLECTION ROUGE ALLURE MOIRÉ is inspired by the beauty and refinement of overflowing fabrics and ribbons. To develop it, the CHANEL Makeup Studio composed a range of colours with luxurious, shimmering reflections.

The moiré effect is the result of different types of mother-of-pearl: tone-on-tone, translucent or with golden, silver, bronze or copper reflections. For each shade of ROUGE ALLURE, the small diameter of the mother-of-pearl, its different combinations and its concentrations were adjusted to boost luminosity while maintaining the soft second-skin texture.

The bold colour, revealed in a single stroke on the lips, glimmers in the changing light, revealing its fleeting shimmer in a chance movement or smile. The warm and delicate moiré colours heighten the charm and mystery of intangible makeup.
