I wear lipstick every day and my favourite finish is matte, so my lips take quite a battering. I usually have a few lipbalms scattered around: in handbags, on my desk, next to my bed, in the living room… you get the idea!

I’ve seen a few people using Balmi lip balms and was instantly drawn to their pretty colours and the conical shape of the balm. But more on that later! I was excited to try this out, so thanks Balmi for sending me one 🙂

Kiko 389 Mint Milk Review

Kiko 389 Mint Milk Review

I am a huge fan of pastels and mint green is a personal favourite. It is bright, fun and pretty, but not as cloying as baby pink or yellow.

Kiko polishes have a seriously brilliant formula: this was full coverage in 2 thin coats, it is fast drying and gives an incredibly high shine. Kiko 389 Mint Milk is no exception. These pictures show the manicure topped with Seche Vite but it was ridiculously shiny without top coat.

I think this might be the perfect summery shade…now I just need summer!

You can buy Kiko nail polishes HERE.

Revlon 320 Jaded Nail Varnish

I love pastels. I know that it’s Autumn and I’m meant to be reviewing oranges and reds and browns but come on! Look at this polish! It is just so pretty. Mint creme polish with blue flecked shimmer…*sigh*.

OPI ‘Thanks A Windmillion’

OPI ‘Thanks A Windmillion’

This is the second of the polishes I got from the O.P.I Holland collection. It is a pretty dusky sage green creme polish and is a perfect shade for Spring as it fits the pastel trend very well but has a bit of edge to it.

Unlike ‘A Roll in the Hague’ (you can read my review of that polish HERE), this polish went on perfectly and dried super quickly. I think ‘A Roll In The Hague’ may have been a dodgy bottle as usually you really can’t beat OPI for great application, I could have spent a fortune on this range!

You can buy this polish HERE if you love it as much as I do.
