Revlon Plum Night
I found these photos on my computer and realised that I had never blogged them. This manicure was done just after a few nails breaks, hence the uneven nail lengths – I apologise!
Revlon Plum Night is a rich aubergine coloured cream polish that is absolute perfection in 2 coats. This is a glorious autumnal colour and, as we are meant to be in summer but it’s freezing and raining, I’m going to allow myself to bust out this colour now! At first glance this nail varnish would look almost black, but the plum tones to it really come out in natural light and give this an interesting depth, as you can see in the picture below. This manicure is topped with Seche Vite (of course).
You can buy this nail varnish for £4.99 HERE.
Maybelline Color Show Midnight Taupe
I don’t have many Maybelline polishes but after trying this one I think may be getting some more. This is a nail varnish that is quite hard to describe: I’d say it’s a purple-y taupe creme polish. It is unusual as it’s quite a flat colour, in terms of depth and dimension, but is still very shiny and interesting.
This manicure was 2 coats but the polish is quite thin on application so maybe try 3 if you want to get a more opaque finish. Be careful when applying the polish – as the formula is so runny it would be easy to flood your cuticles and ruin your mani.
This is topped with Seche Vite – as always.
You can buy it HERE.
Sinful Colors Ruby Ruby
This is only my second ever bottle of Sinful Colors polish and I’m glad I went for this striking red. ‘Ruby Ruby’ is a classic, pillar box red polish, with a great formula: this is two coats topped with Essie ‘Good To Go’ (Yes, I cheated on Seche Vite and I don’t like it as much. That’ll teach me!)
I can’t find this polish for sale in the UK at the moment which is a shame as it’s a really great polish and I’d love to try more.
I actually chose this polish for my wedding day manicure, which you can see HERE.

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 Electric Blue 336 Review
*clears throat* Attention everyone! Call off the wedding! Sorry Aaron, but I have a new love and it is called ‘Electric Blue (336)’ – not the best name, I know.
And before anyone says anything, YES this is a blue polish and YES I love it. I KNOW, no one is more surprised than me. Down is up! Left is right! I love a blue nail polish!! In case you’re new to these parts, I don’t do blue nail varnish. I just don’t really get the appeal. Or should I say didn’t. Until now.
I have wanted this polish ever since I heard it was the perfect dupe for Nails Inc’s ‘Baker Street’. Even as a non-blue fan, I still cant resist a good dupe! It is a vibrant, cobalt blue that just seems to glow. This only needed 2 thin coats and was so shiny I almost didn’t top with Seche Vite (but obviously I did – it’s like a compulsion).
Is this polish the turning point in my relationship with blue polish? Would I love Baker Street even more? I am so confused!
You can buy this (and why wouldn’t you?!) HERE.
