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…
I was lucky enough to go to the essie pop-up nail bar in Debenhams on Oxford Street last week for a manicure (you can see what I had done HERE). On my way out I was handed a bag that contained the full essie Summer 2015 collection. Cue lots of squealing!
This is such a great collection, really strong with a wide range of colours that include some classics and some unusual additions. So let’s have a peek…
I have already done a nail art blog post featuring 2 of the GOSH SS15 collection nail varnishes, but wanted to show you some other exciting bits from the collection that I was sent this week. I don’t think I’d tried any GOSH make up products before so I was very intrigued to give them a go.
Now that spring is finally here, I have found myself being drawn to wearing more colour on my face. So when these limited edition Skybreaker eyeliner pencils from Glo & Ray arrived on my desk I was pretty excited. This set contains 6 eyeliners and a pencil sharpener to ensure they stay sharp and ready to use.
At the Birchbox event I went to a few weeks ago I met a blogger called Emily and fangirled a bit when I found out that she was one of the creators of The Lacquer Lab. I am always on the look out for independent, UK based nail polish brands and this one had been on my radar for a while. I was lucky enough to be sent their new limited edition festive trio to review and I will apologise now for the photo heavy post: these polishes deserve a lot of pictures!

So here is the trio, L-R: Fred & Ginger, I Want A Pony, and Snow Globe. Don’t you just feel Christmassy looking at them?
