I have way too many nail polishes so I’m only buying ones from now on that are very versatile or have something special about them.

Paradise Lost is a beautiful rose gold colour with copper tones and incredibly fine sparkle, which has a matte texture.

Ciate Gelology range incorporates their most popular shades but this time in a highlight pigmented gel finish that bonds to the nail better and bends with the nail for longer wear. This glided on easily and two thin coats gave this amazing depth of colour. I do have very weak bendy nails and it hasn’t cracked or flaked at all!

I’m going to be wearing this through October and the party season. It will also look stunning with a tan in Summer.

Zoya Nail Polish in Rocky

Screen Shot 2017-04-21 at 16.55.29

Cruelty free and vegan with no formaldehyde, toluene, dibuytl phthalate or camphor. I’ve used this polish in a hurry without a base coat and, unlike a lot of polishes it has not made my nails dry or brittle. With a base and top coat this polish has lasts up to four days even though my nails are oddly flexible, meaning polish is prone to cracking and breaking up but Zoya lasts.

Rocky is an opaque turquoise. It reminds me of 1950’s electric guitars and retro Smeg kitchenware but a tiny bit more toward the greener side of turquoise, which adds depth and saturation to the colour.
