Gabrini Summer Edition ‘M101’ Nail Varnish
I have blogged about my love for Gabrini nail polishes before but lets recap: they are a Turkish brand that I discovered in a tiny beauty shop in North London. I can’t find anywhere online where you can purchase them but they do have a website with their collections, which you can find HERE. This polish has been in my collection since last summer and I have absolutely no idea why I haven’t worn it before now.
LA Colours Magnetic Force NP415
The super lovely @FabFingertips1 sent me this beautiful polish as nail mail and I swatched it ages ago but completely forgot to take photos. So here it is, finally! LA Colours Magnetic Force NP415 is a coral pink creme polish with a gorgeously summery gold shimmer when it catches the light. LA Colour polishes are very affordable (I think they’re about £1 in the places near me which is ridiculous).
This polish is perfect in two coats. If you can get your hands on some LA Colours, I really recommend them. You can see the full range on their website HERE.
OPI Skull and Glossbones
This is another polish from the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides’ Collection – OPI Skull and Glossbones (I LOVE THAT NAME). Although I have no desire to ever (EVER) see this film, the nail polish collection to go with it has really impressed me.
This is a very light grey creme polish with a slight sage green tint. I love grey polishes in all their forms but this one is my new favourite. It is a perfect, classic nail varnish with an unusual twist. What’s not to like?
This required 2 thin coats and the pictures show the manicure topped with Seche Vite. I think OPI have no discontinued this range, but you can buy this polish HERE.
OPI ‘I Brake For Manicures’
This is the second nail varnish from my recent Paris Sephora mini haul polishes: I picked the unusual OPI ‘I Brake For Manicures’ from the 2011 Touring America collection. I wasn’t super excited for this range when I saw it, but maybe I’ve judged it too quickly…
OPI ‘Louvre Me, Louvre Me Not’
When I was in Paris, I made my first trip to Sephora (the enormous one on the Champs-Élysées). I am officially in love! I was in there for absolutely ages. My boyfriend got bored very quickly and just left me to it and went outside to smoke…but not before he told me that he was giving me £50 to spend on nail varnish! WAHHHH! I was in heaven! I ended up buying 4 OPIs but spent bloody ages picking which ones I wanted.
