the place where I talk about the nail and beauty products I love

I'm a 23 year old living in Bristol studying a MSc in Palaeobiology, following my graduation from Cardiff University with a BSc in Geology. I love the subject but I also have a passion for nail polish and I've recently branched out into beauty and bath & body too!
I’ve added the three newest shades to this post (marked * *)!
MUA Velvet Lip Lacquers apply like a gloss, with a doe-foot applicator and great formula, but dry to a matte finish – with no smudging! Which is why I love them. I know I’ve swatched a load of the Velvet Lip Lacquers before but in the last 2 months they’ve released 6 more of them and I wanted to put all my swatches in one place. So, today I spent many hours, resulting in very sore lips, swatching the new shades (and re-swatching the old ones) to finally compile them all in one post! I haven’t included the older shades which are no longer sold on the MUA site (a couple are still available on Superdrug). Let me tell you, it’s taken a while to get this up! I’ll keep the descriptions short and brief as there are 30 colours to get through… Enjoy!Read More »
Barry M have very recently released 3 new palettes and, as I said in my last post I’ve picked up 2 of them because I just couldn’t resist the colours! I’ve also got my eye on the third one, Meteor Storm which has 8 shades and costs £9.99… I’m sharing Crown Jewels with you today, which is made up of 10 gorgeous shimmer/glitter shades – again they have no names but are perfect for autumn.

Barry M have very recently released 3 new palettes and I’ve (so far) picked up 2 of them because I just couldn’t resist the colours! The first one I’m sharing with you is Fall In Love and as you can probably guess it’s made up of a range of beautiful autumn shades. There are 10 matte colours in total – sadly they have no names… Read More »
A couple of weeks ago I popped into Primark to browse and I obviously came out with half a basket of nail polish… (not quite). Included in my little haul are 8 (I think that was all of them) PS… Insta Girl Nail Lacquers that claim to be one coaters. I can confirm that these are… NOT all one coaters, sadly, but 2 is good and they only cost £1.50. The formula for all of these is great too and they don’t smell nasty and cheap like the old Primark polishes used to. Let’s crack on with the swatches!
If you’re a Disney fan and you haven’t watched Moana yet… WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? It’s probably one f my favourite (if not my favourite) out of the new animated ‘sing-song’ Disney films and I’ve definitely watched it too many times (is that a thing!?). Anyway, Lea from Sparklea Nail Polish released a Moana collection not too long ago and I recently purchased 3 out of the 5 polishes that were originally available. You can still get 3 of them (2 of the ones I’m sharing here plus another I didn’t get) on the website and they’re currently ON SALE! All polishes are handmade by Lea and are also are 5-free and cruelty-free. Most cost £6 for 10ml or £3.50 for 5ml at full price. I managed to pick up mine in the sale and I think I got them for £4 each.Read More »
