I don’t know about you but I am so ready for Spring. Lighter evenings, leaving scarves at home for the first time in (what feels like) forever and, more excitingly, COLOUR. I don’t tend to follow the rules of shades in certain seasons but I am already finding myself leaning towards the brighter and lighter side of things. Which is why the new essie Spring 2016 Collection* has made such an impact on me.

Read on for my thoughts on the collection and your chance to win the whole set

Is there anything more annoying (in the beauty world at least) than falling in love with something and then it getting discontinued? The essie Retro Revival collection* is here to try to rectify that. Essie have brought back 6 of their most lamented discontinuations for a limited time only. Last summer, essie asked their customers to vote on which polishes to bring back, so these are all cult favourites. I was sent the whole collection so prepare yourself for a very photo-heavy post…

I’m always on the look out for my next nail varnish discovery and was very excited when this brand popped into my inbox. Described as a luxurious boutique nail polish brand, HJ Manicure nail varnish is named after its founder, Helen J: a former model who trained as a nail technician and worked as a session manicurist… so she definitely knows her nail varnish!

essie Fall 2015 Collection Swatches and Review

A few weeks ago I nipped into Boots to look for the new essie Cashmere Collection (no sign but I will hopefully have them by next weekend so keep an eye on the blog for these!) but I did find the new Fall Collection. And essie polishes were on buy-one-get-one-half-price, so it wouldn’t have made financial sense to pass up that opportunity. Right?

I have a pretty  extensive nail varnish collection but one thing I’d never tried was colour-changing polish. The lovely Laura from Madam Glam got in touch with me and asked if I’d like to try some of their gels and regular polishes – exciting!

So July has come to an end and it appears to have taken the summer weather with it. We have put the duvet back on the bed and I wore a jumper the other day. A  JUMPER. I hope the sun comes back soon, I’m not ready for autumn yet!

To cheer me up I’ve put together the bits and pieces that I’ve been reaching for again and again this month. So what have I been loving?
