Polished by Leanne – Sweet Treats Collection

Hello! I’ve been gone for so long… I’ve been focusing on my thesis for my master’s degree. It’s submitted and I’ve finally completed the course so I’m back with my first post. This won’t be the start of my regular posting, that’ll begin next week… but I’m back for now with the Sweet Treats Collection that Leanne from Polished by Leanne kindly sent to me to swatch & review. This beautiful matte trio is being released tomorrow(!) and you should head to Polished by Leanne Facebook Group to join the launch event at 7pm. Let’s take a look at them shall we?Read More »

2017: A Year In Review

Here I am on Christmas Eve writing my last blog post of 2017, which happens to be my 280th post overall, and reflecting on this small part of my life. I feel like Tipped Off Nails has come so far since I started back in 2014 and it’s particularly grown this year. My views have hit 40K+, an increase of 1065% (!) since my first year, and I now have 250+ followers on here. My monthly views are now almost as high as my first full year of blogging! 2017 has not been an easy year for me, as some of you may know, so it’s good to see improvements here on my little blogging project.Read More »

Blogmas Day 24: 2017 Essie Advent Calendar Overview

It’s Christmas Eve and time for advent to end. I’ve been sharing the contents of the Essie Advent Calendar over on my Instagram stories every day during advent, but I thought I would do a more detailed review of it here! Obviously, this is no longer in stock, but I picked this up for £40 (RRP £50) in Superdrug, and annoyingly it was on sale for something ridiculous like £5 a couple of days ago! The price point is incredible regardless because, as you’ll see, you receive 7 full-size polishes including one fo the new Gel Couture shades, 13 minis and 4 nail care items. The full-size polishes alone come to a total of £60.89, so you’re definitely getting your monies worth! I’m going to keep this post relatively brief from now on as I have 24 items to get through…

The candles featured in these photos are from the Wilko Candle Advent Calendar which was just £8, and I much preferred it to the Yankee Candle one I had last year – I hope they do one next Christmas too!

Blogmas Day 23: December Mani & Lola subscription box

It’s Christmas Eve Eve! And today I’m sharing Mani & Lola with you, a brand new UK monthly nail subscription box! Unlike Meebox (who I have reviewed many of times (here)!), this box focuses on nail care, including polishes, rather than nail art. So, if you like the idea of surprise nail items turning up every month but don’t care for nail art then this is the box for you! Prices start at £14 (+P&P) for 12 months up front or you can do a monthly rolling subscription for £20 a month (+P&P) meaning you can cancel at any time. I use the latter! This is actually their second month, I sadly missed out on their first (I would love to get my hands on it!), and I am not disappointed by these Holiday Glam goodies! The total RRP of this box is a whopping £65.74! Let’s take a look at the contents…

Blogmas Day 22: December Meebox

The last MeeBox of the year and it’s a good one! The theme this month is Holo Wonderland and I wasn’t disappointed – it even includes an exclusive Prism Polish shade which I’m really excited about! The total RRP comes to £42.50 including postage, so you’re getting a great deal here, as the subscription is £20 a month. You’re getting so much for your money…Read More »
