Monday 29th October.

Products Used: Essie Fill The Gap Base Coat

Rimmel Lycra Pro – Jungle Princess.

Sally Hansen Extreme Wear – Pumpkin Spice.

Sally Hansen Mega Shine.

On removing Sally Hansens Brisk Blue I was horrified to discover the worse staining I have ever seen in my life, I wore a base coat and they still stained badly, my nails have a puke-worthy highly obvious blue tinge to them, I was gonna leave them bare and bullshit that they were a halloween affect but I’m a rubbish liar, anyway I knew that I would have to wear a dark colour to cover up the awfulness so I chose Jungle Princess by Rimmel. Its a melted chocolate brown colour with subtle pink micro shimmer throughout. It also has the big curved flat applicator which you’ll probably know I love.

I applied two coats of my Essie base coat (to be safe) to try and dull the blue tinge, then two coats of Jungle Princess. One coat was opaque but I applied two for good measure. I love the colour but I thought my Pumpkin Spice would good over this so applied one coat on my ring finger and I asked the girl whos opinion I respect the most, my seven year old Daughter haha, she thought I should do all my nails with the glitter so I obedientley applied two coats of Pumpkin Spice on all my nails and topped it off with a coat of Mega Shine. I love the end result.

The formula of Pumpkin Spice was quite watery and the brush very thin but suprisingly it picked up a lot of glitter and distributed it evenly. I cant wait to try  this over different colours.

Products Used: Essie Base Coat.

Revlon Top Speed – Royal.

Sally Hansen Mega Shine.

This is a truly lovely formula to work with and I love the colour, its the third time I’ve worn this one now, its one of the few bottles that I keep at the front of my storage so I can easily reach it. Its a gel consistency that glides on the nail with ease, under light the depth of the blue really shows and I recieved two lovely comments on my nails from total stangers today which really cheered me up. The camera picked up some visible nail line but its not visible in real life in any light. I applied two coats and I was tempted to mattify it but then thought better of it. This was a bargain at only £1 and I’m keen to try others in the range.

Nails Inc – Elizabeth Street (Free with current issue of Glamour magazine)

I really wanted to do some kind of Halloween manicure but knew I could not compete with all the other bloggers works of art and after several failed practice attempts I could not be arsed to fart around so I chose to wear my Nails Inc polish that I got free with Glamour magazine today. I have heard an awful lot about this brand and at £11 per bottle its out of my price range so I was pretty excited to get to try a product from this brand.

Firstly I had major difficulty opening the bottle, the lid sort of bent in with any pressure and made it extremely difficult to twist off, it suddenly gave way and the whole bottle and brush went flying. Luckily no product was lost and the brush  landed on my tiled floor so no damage done. On opening the bottle I was shocked at the strong odour, its the same odour as other polishes but stronger, I guess I expected a pleasant odour from a posh polish, one the first coat the polish lokked watery and streaky but the second and third coat fixed this, however after the third coat the colour was still pretty sheer and I ended up with five coats in total and my nail line was still visible, despite the amount of coats the polish dried quickly but I was dissappointed to see a lot of bubbling, really not a good performance for a polish that retails at £11, I may try the red one and see if that is any better.

Products Used: W7 Crackle – Shocking.

Sally Hansen Super Shine.

Boy oh boy am I ill today. Basically I whacked on a coat of W7’s crackle top coat in shocking, over the top of yetserdays Elizabeth Street, this stuff stinks to high heaven (and thats saying something as my nostrils are bunged up) but it went on really nicely despite looking gloopy on the brush, I finished it off with a coat of Sally Hansen’s Supershine.

Friday 2nd November.

Products Used: Essie Fill The Gap Base Coat.

Sally Hansen Insta-Dri – Rapid Ruby.

Sally Hansen Mega Shine.

I must be nuts using the insta-dri again but I’d like to see if this one stains as much as Brisk Blue did, I applied two coats over my base coat and finished off with a coat of Mega Shine.

Saturday 3rd November.

Products Used: Fill The Gap Base Coat.

Pink Tease Minis -Ghastly Grey and Pongy Purple.

Essie Instant Dry Oil Protector.

I’m trying to work my way through my untrieds so today I used two mini bottles from a set of six by the brand Pink Tease. These were super cheap and cost me £1.99 for the full set in Boyes. There is no shade name on the bottle or number so I just made the names up. This polish stinks, really bad, its like a chemical mix of tar and sulphur, I actually got a headache from usuing this stuff, the brush was of a shitty quality and made applying the gloopy formula difficult, I only need two coats and it dried very quickly.

Sunday 4th November.

Products Used: Fill the Gap Essie Base Coat.

Bourjois Second Per Nail – Pearly Black.

Revlon – Gold Coin.

LA Colours – Metallic Silver.

I started with two coats of Bourjois. Its a black polish with hints of silver and purple shimmer, which as usual the camera fails to pick up. Two coats gave total coverage, I then took my dotting pen and dotted large gold circles on alternating nails, and then large silver dots on the other nails, using the smaller end of my dotting tools I made smaller silver circles alongside the large gold ones and vice versa with the other nails. My 7 year old called them “groovy”. No top coat was used as my Mega Shine is empty :( I’m going to purchase a new one tomorrow I hope.

I think I like the dots and Pumpkin Spice the best.
