Illamasqua Viridian Nail Polish

Illamasqua Viridian Nail Polish

Hi there! I'm so glad the weekend is here! I'm in desperate need of some shut eye! Did any of you miss nail polish posts? It feels like I haven't done one in a very long time! Today's polish is the stunning jewel-toned Illamasqua Viridian! Illamasqua Viridian is a complex colour that's partly a metallic teal and dark green. Stay with me here... You can pick up a bit of blue duochrome in the bottle but that's where it stays. On the nail, it's a darker green with microshimmer and depth. On close…Read more
Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Polish in Wintermint

Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Polish in Wintermint

I have a lovely nail polish to review today! It also happens to be a dupe (with minor variations) for Deborah Lippmann's Mermaid's Dream which has me squeeing on the inside. Revlon Parfumerie launched in the US a couple of months ago. Basically they are cute bottles with good quality scented nail polish. I don't really care about the scented part but Wintermint has a nice minty scent. Wintermint has a mint green base with gold and green micro glitter along with large teal glitters suspended in it. From afar it looks like…Read more
Top 10 Nail Polishes for Spring

Top 10 Nail Polishes for Spring

To be very honest, I don't always follow the seasonal trends when it comes to nail polish. My mood and what catches my eye pretty much dictates what I'm wearing at the moment. But for those who do, here are my top 10 picks for spring and summer! I like blues, greens and this year, the radiant orchid shade as well. Let's get started!       01. H&M Newlyweds - This is a lovely sheer polish which has a milky white base and gold shimmer densely scattered. It looks very understated and…Read more
Just Swatches : Zoya Nail Polishes

Just Swatches : Zoya Nail Polishes

Hello! I'm back with another Just Swatches post! This time it's my beloved Zoya nail polishes! I think Valerie and Robyn were among the first ones I bought, fell in love with the formula and you can see what happened then! If I had to pick favourites from this lot it would be Valerie, Alegra, Trixie and now even Perrie. This years Pantone Colour of the year is Radiant Orchid and I think Perrie is an exact match. It's smack in the middle of that purple pink range, gorgeous colour! Kristin - It's…Read more
Essie The More The Merrier Nail Polish

Essie The More The Merrier Nail Polish

If you're bored with the usual colours and want something different, you might want to consider Essie The More The Merrier. This came out with the Naughty Nautical collection. I'd describe it has a ┬áchartreuse leaning more towards yellow. Or just a lime shade if you prefer. I wouldn't call it a pastel shade but it's not very bright either. There are lots of similar polishes though with slight variations in brightness like China Glaze Def Defying, China Glaze Electric Pineapple, OPI Did It On Em and Revlon Sassy. It's a creme polish…Read more
OPI Live and Let Die Nail Polish

OPI Live and Let Die Nail Polish

Nail polish with shimmer is my weakness. OPI Live and Let Die from the Skyfall collection is an intense gorgeous colour and if you like wearing darker colours for fall, this one is perfect! Live and Let Die is dark forest green creme base with yellow and gold microshimmer. It gives it a lot of depth and it really sparkles in sunlight. The base is a very blackened green so can look almost black at times but in the day you can see that bit of teal in it as well. Formula wise…Read more
China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint Nail Polish

China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint Nail Polish

Hello people! Around 2-3 years back when the mint nail polish (or mint anything) craze started, Re-Fresh Mint was the first China Glaze I purchased. Re-fresh Mint is a new warm minty colour. The polish is creme and so the formula is wonderful and the very best when it comes to China Glaze. I know a lot of other mint polishes are more blue toned but I wanted a good pastel one. This was my answer. It's not very office appropriate, so I love wearing this on my feet in the summers. This…Read more
Inglot Nail Polish in 974

Inglot Nail Polish in 974

I was going through this phase where I loved brown polishes and I wanted the perfect taupey brown. MarjorBrands.in was having a sale on Inglot products and so I hauled this too! I'm in love with the color, it looks gorgeous on nails but I'm not very happy with the durability. The colour is a medium brown with a heavy grey undertone. The polish is creamy and gives a glossy finish, although you would typically still need a topcoat. The polish is a bit sheer depending on how much you take on while…Read more

Colorbar Apple Martini Nail Polish

I'm back after a long break! Thought I'd start with one of my favourite polishes at the moment. Colorbar's nail polishes come in a pretty good colour range and price as well. You can find them easily in malls or online sites. Today, I'm reviewing Apple Martini which is a bright emerald green. I should warn you that the photos are more blue toned than the polish really is. The polish has a yellow/blue undertone to it but the photos came out with more blue in them. Some neons or brights look a…Read more

China Glaze Four Leaf Clover

When Mulberry Alexa exploded on the scene, I wanted the watermelon one so badly!! Instead, I bought China Glaze Four Leaf Clover! The colour is a total dupe! And I love it! When it comes to spring colours, I love pastel colour but I don't think they look that good with my skin tone. Instead the slightly darker bright colours suit me more. This is definitely one of them! I have to give you a warning though, the colouring in the photographs is slightly off. I tried with 3 different cameras and all…Read more
