models own Pink Blush

I don’t wear pink very often as I don’t think it suits me. But I’m quite pleasantly surprised by this shade. Although it’s rather bright and in your face, I think that’s why I like it; bright colours suit my skin tone. This is Models Own Pink Blush. It’s a bright, almost neon, pink creme. […] Read more

Graffiti Nails Tuscany

This is the second of some polishes I was sent for review by Graffiti Nails. Tuscany is a gorgeous shade of orange. I don’t have anything like this already. It’s on the yellow side of orange and has a burnt quality about it. I did a Google image search for “Tuscan orange” and the colours […] Read more

FingerFood’s Theme Weeks: Shapes / Geometric: Colourful Circles

Firstly, the original creator had used Essie Mint Candy Apple. I’ve overdone the mint a bit recently and wanted to try it with […] Read more

Pink half moons

My husband hates this manicure, but I love it. He says the colours don’t go. Well, that was the idea really: to use contrasting colours in order to get a stand-out effect. But you can’t win them all. The pink half moons are Models Own Raspberry Crush, which was one of the freebie polishes I […] Read more
