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.

This beautiful beast is one of my recent birthday polishes and I absolutely adore it – it is like nothing else I own (which is pretty hard work with so many polishes!)

Today’s manicure is Kiko’s yummy, squishy jelly polish, the exotically named ‘244’ (!). This is a dramatic, dark purple – almost black. I was pleasantly surprised that this applied perfectly in two coats, which is unusual for a jelly polish to be so pigmented and not to leave bald spots.

Kiko are rapidly becoming one of my favourite polishes, although I found out recently that they are a lot more expensive in the UK than elsewhere in Europe… who’s up for a trip to Italy to stock up? You can buy them online HERE.

Gabrini 398 Nail Varnish Review

Gabrini 398 Nail Varnish Review

Cabrini 398 is a lovely grey polish that I didn’t even realise was matte until I got home, apparently when I really like the look of a polish I don’t even bother to read the packaging! I love matte finishes on manicures, but prefer to paint a matte top coat over a regular polish so that I can do a layer of Seche Vite between. I have found the matte polishes tend to drag and leave a bumpy finish.

But this one was different. This is two easy to apply coats and as you can see the finish is perfect. I also like that it’s not as flat or dull as most matte polishes – it’s softer looking and almost rubbery. It would be perfect for a first timer in the matte polish area.

Anyone else tried any Gabrini polishes? Every one that I try makes me sure that I’m robbing them somehow by getting them for 99p!

Rapsodi is a Turkish brand that I had never come across before until I saw these polishes (they own Gabrini as well – a brand I have raved about before). I have only seen these nail varnishes in one wholesale beauty shop that’s  in North London and I now have to go get some more of these neons as this is just beautiful.  And it was 99p. BRILLIANT.
