Blogmas Day 16: A Mini Haul – Polished by Leanne

Polished by Leanne is another Indie brand that I’ve had a chance to try recently, thanks to the amazing sale Leanne had over on her Facebook group last month! However, it seems to me that every indie maker I’m sharing with you these last few weeks has shut up shop for a while! Oops! Like the others, Leanne will be back so pop over to her, or the store’s Instagram for updates. But for now, I have 2 lovely polishes to share with you.

Testing Beauty UK

Blogmas Day 15: testing Beauty UK

Beauty UK is an independent UK beauty brand, that has been around ever since I can remember. I’ve noticed that the products I’ve tried today are cruelty-free and vegan-friendly (not stated on the nail polish, but I’ve sent an enquiry to check!), which is amazing. My first ever dark lipstick was a Beauty UK one, and I loved it. This was YEARS ago now but they do in fact still sell Plumalicious! Since then, I haven’t bought a single product from this brand so when I saw they were having a 50% off sale during Black Friday I thought I would give some different products to try. They’re super affordable as it is – although I do remember paying £1 for that first lipstick in Superdrug and it now costs £3.49. Inflation for you… I’m going to list them all at full price, but I only paid half! Oh… they’re having a 40% off Christmas Sale right now if you’re interested! Read More »

Blogmas Day 14: Sleek Lip VIP Full Collection

Back in April 2016 I shared my first swatches of the 6 new Sleek Lip VIP lipsticks, and then in June 2016 I shared 3 more and I swatched a further 6 in October the same year. There are now 24 shades in total, including Dream Decade which I don’t own, plus 2 from the Rockstar Collection. I thought I’d compile a quick swatch post of all the 26 shades that I won so they’re all in one place! There are only 21 still available on the Sleek site though! You can also buy them at Boots and Superdrug too. Prices (ATOW) start at £3.99 but they’re usually £5.49 and often on offer. I’ll start with the standard Lip VIPs first.Read More »

Blogmas Day 13: Essence Out of Space Stories Collection

I’ve had the Essence Out of Space Stories Collection on my swatch shelf for months… literally. I’ve never seemed to have space/time to post it until now! There are 7 polishes in this range, which quite a variety of colours and finishes. They all cost just £2 each (for 9ml) and are available to buy from Wilko in the UK. Read More »

Blogmas Day 12: Danglefoot Dino-mite Collection

Danglefoot Nail polish is a handmade, 5-free, UK indie brand. I had yet to try this brand (it was on my list) so I was super excited to see that Hayley was releasing a dinosaur themed collection as I’m a palaeontologist myself! Unfortunately, I missed out on half the collection because I was at work when it went live in the store and it sold out so quickly! I’m hoping to get the rest of the polishes in the re-stock after Christmas but for now, I have 3 of the collection to share with you!Read More »
