MoYou Nail Stamping Kit Review

Until I met the MoYou ladies I had never tried nail stamping – I know, what a terrible nail blogger! I had seen amazing, intricate nail designs and always wanted to get involved but never made the leap. But when I went to a blogging event and saw the MoYou stand I was drawn like a moth to the brightly coloured flame.

Models Own Gold Finger Review

Models Own Gold Finger

Models Own Gold Finger

This stunning polish was lying unloved and unopened in my untried pile. What on earth was I thinking? This is so beautiful! This manicure is shown with 3 coats of dense glitter that didn’t need any placement which means it’s a total faff free manicure. The glitter is so shiny and sparkly and has attracted so many comments when I’ve been wearing it.

I think have found a new favourite glitter! If you’re in love with this but wary of glitter removal, I have a video with a really quick and easy removal method. It will change your life (okay, that may be an over exaggeration but it is pretty great! You can watch it HERE)

It looks like Models Own have stopped selling this (WHHHHHYYYYyyyyyy) but you can get it HERE if you just can’t live without this sparkle in your life.

Kiko Jade Green 345 Review

Kiko Jade Green 345 Review

As my nail varnish collection expands it gets harder to find polishes that catch my eye because they’re different to anything else I have. I thought this would be a little bit similar to Models Own ‘Grace Green’ (review HERE …oh how I miss my talons…)

But it’s a lighter, more minty colour. It’s still a nice unusual version on the pastels which are everywhere. It’s good to see something a bit different.

If you haven’t tried Kiko polishes, I highly recommend them: only £3.90, great colours and good formulas. You can buy them HERE.

This was 3 coats of Kiko Jade Green 345, topped with Seche Vite.

Models Own Banana Split Review

Models Own Banana Split Review

Hands up. I admit it. I am a sucker for a gimmick. I am also a sucker for pastels. So when I heard that Models Own were doing a pastels collection of nail varnishes that were scented I was all over it. Like spots on a dalmation.

‘Banana Split’ is a baby yellow creme polish that isn’t as opaque as it looks. I really wish I had done a white undies layer because this needed 3 generous coats. But it all smoothed out and dried fine with Seche Vite on top (although there’s a slight gathering of polish at the tips of the nail which is annoying me…)

This polish didn’t smell like real bananas – even BETTER – it smelt like the foam penny sweetie bananas! Mmmm…I was craving pick ‘n’ mix every time I smelt my nails!

I actually realised after posting this that I already own a Models Own pastel yellow (lemon meringue) which is IDENTICAL to this but doesn’t smell of bananas so obviously I had to have both. I have a serious problem.

Has anyone tried any of the other polishes in this collection? I bet the ‘Apple Pie’ one is incredible… You can buy this polish HERE, but I warn you: you will get a lot of weird looks from people wondering why you’re sniffing your nails!
