In the pictures I am wearing two coats - 

I loved wearing this colour! One of the rare times where I've kept a colour on longer than just to swatch it :) I wore it for about four days, with minimal chipping.

It's one of those that made me happy to wear it! What more could you ask from a colour?!

Aquadelic is currently £4.38 on

OPI - Tiffany Case

OPI Tiffany Case is one of the Liquid Sand textures polishes. First available in the Bond Girls: Liquid Sand collection from last year, Tiffany Case is a turquiose blue glitter with larger pale blue glitter particles.

Tiffany Case is from the film 'Diamonds Are Forever', which has probably the greatest theme tune of all time by the the fabulous Dame Shirley Bassey :)

I love it so much.

Anyway! The swatches have two coats and no top coat - 

This is the second OPI Liquid Sand polish I have tried, and I still love them and the textured trend! I can't stop touching them :)

I bought mine from so unfortunately the sale is no longer available, however you can still get it from

Zoya - Holly

I don't know how many of you will know this, but my actually real life name is Holly and I am on a mission to own every nail polish with 'Holly' in the name!

I first came across Zoya Holly about a year ago and never bought it. Who knows why! I'd forgotten about it to be honest until I Googled 'Holly nail polish' and there it was again. This time I made he right choice ;-)

"Zoya Nail Polish in Holly can be best described as: A rich holly green with subtle yellow tones in a luminous metallic finish. Great for giving the nails a flash of rich gem-toned color." 

*Quote from*

I LOVE this colour so much! Opaque in two super smooth coats. A truly gorgeous metallic emerald green. 

The finish of this colour is lovely, and I can't wait to buy some more Zoya shades and explore the range, especially the Pixie Dust range which have the textured finish!

You can check out the Zoya range at I bought Holly for £10.50 from

Beautybay Collection swatches

I am so excited to introduce some of the new polishes from Beautybay!!

The collection was launched a couple of months ago from, and is obviously their own named range. If you've followed me for a while, you'll know that has been one of my favourite beauty websites for a long time, so when I discovered they were launching their own stuff I just had to have some!

I bought three colours to get me started. The first is called Donner Pass - 

"Donner Pass is a rich pine green colour.
This lush dense green polish is inspired by the luscious green foliage and pine trees forest of Donner Pass which trails through the Sierra Nevada"
Next is Lincoln Highway - 

"Lincoln Highway is a creamy pale grey polish.
Get ready to hit the highway with this edgy, urban grey nail polish. Inspired by the ‘main street across America’, Lincoln Highway is warm and creamy nail colour which will have you ready to take on the road."
And last but not least, my favourite of the three, Espanola Way - 

"Espanola Way is a delicious crème coral polish.
Inject a touch of summer sunshine into your life even on a gloomy day with this soft, warm coral polish inspired by the beautiful peach art deco buildings of Espanola Way"
All swatches are two coats with Seche Vite Top Coat.

I must say, I am impressed with the formula of these. I am always a bit sceptical of trying a new brand, which is why I didn't by all the colours immediately, but I am won over with these three. There is no doubt I will be purchasing more shades.

You get 12ml of polish for £5.

Check out the whole Beautybay collection HERE, which includes pretty much everything you need for your make up essentials.
