Eyeko - Military Polish (for Brave Nails)

Hi everyone,

Today I have my first Eyeko polish and the newest addition to the site - Military Polish for Brave Nails.

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this!!! It applied great and had full coverage in 2 coats. It's perfect and smooth and really saturated. This is a very dark khaki green. Quite flattering with my skin tone and I think looks pretty darn chic.

I did quickly swatch my other Eyeko's and some seemed a bit watery but covered well in 2 coats. I ordered Cosmic, Vampira, Indigo, Lilac, Military and got Rain free because I spent over £10! Free delivery was super quick - I ordered Wednesday and got them yesterday.

I'm very impressed with these and will probably be ordering some more when I get back from holiday. Oh by the way I have decided on colours - Travelling in Orly Ole, then taking Eyeko Lilac Polish and Orly Luxe. Think I will even do toes to match!

Hope you have a good rest of the evening.

Tilly, xx

Orly - It's Not Rocket Science

Hello everyone!

I finally have a weekend to myself so can actually do a post for you!
These last couple of weeks have been pretty hectic - last Thursday was my boyfriends graduation which kinda went on til Sunday, and we're going on holiday Wednesday so I've been busy getting ready for that. The graduation was really fun and I was so proud of him when he collected his degree :) ...the after party was quite crazy and we ended up somehow smashing the lense of my camera so for the moment I am taking pictures on my phone! Sorry in advance.

Anyway, today I have the pleasure of showing you Orly's It's Not Rocket Science.

3 easily appliable coats.

This is a mesmerizing colour - olivey/swampy green base with green gold shimer fx.

I find it hard to find words to describe the polishes in this collection they are just so gorgeous.

I need real help deciding what polishes to take away with me. I'd like to go in BB Couture Sea of Cortez, then I'm thinking to take Luxe and I just invested in some Eyeko's and love the look of Lilac. But then I kinda want a coral so would like to take Essie Peach Daqiuri and then I wonder if I might want something vampy...but I'm only going for a week!!! Lol. What have you taken on holiday this year??

Apology!!! and Lunar Eclipse...

Firstly, I am sooooo sorry that I have been MIA for a week! For some reason life has just been pretty hectic. I'm just doing this now before I go to bed and then I'm off to the boy's for the weekend as he graduates tomorrow.

This is the most stunning blue I have ever seen! The colour is just electrifying!
I did 3 coats and have slight vnl but I really don't care when I get colour like this. You can see in the bottle the pink duochromeness although this doesn't show up as much on the nail but then I was only taking pics in direct sunlight. I just can't wait to wear this on my next night out - it's a real party colour!

I won't be back til Monday, so I hope you all have nice weekends.

Tilly, xx

Nails Inc - Garrick Street and Some New Additions...

Today is a re-swatch of the first polish I posted about. It is a stunningly beautiful purple/blue metallic shimmer with a hint of duochrome!!
I urge you to try and get your mitts on this one. I tried hard, but just couldn't quite capture it's beauty. Application as with most Nails Inc's was good - 3 coats with this to ensure opacity. Cosmic FX Collection arrived today :) I'm sooo happy!!

(not in the Cosmic FX Collection!) Color Club - Covered in Diamonds

l-r: It's Not Rocket Science, Space Cadet and Halleys Comet

l-r: Lunar Eclipse, Out Of This World, Galaxy Girl.

These are all so amazing I cannot describe it! I will be doing manis and reviews very soon for all of them.

Soooo glad I got 2 of Space Cadet as it's now sold out on Head2Toe Beauty. I also got another Covered in Diamonds and a little something else that I'm planning all to into my next giveaway :)

So the question is - which one do I start with?
