Glisten and Glow Youngwildandpolished collaboration polishes

Hi guys

I recently ordered the 4 polishes in the Glisten and Glow Youngwildandpolished collaboration. They arrived within a week from the USA which I was pleased about.

For this mani I am wearing two of the polishes from this collaboration - Topaz's Cabin on my pointer and pinky nails and Dukeberry on my middle and ring nails. Topaz's Cabin is a mid to dark grey cream and Dukeberry is a dusky dark purple.

The polishes applied in 2 easy coats and I'm also wearing base and top coat.

Do you guys have this collection? Which is your favourite polish?

Best wishes, Lou x

Picture Polish collaboration with Brit Nails - Unicorn

Hi guys

Happy new year! I hope you all had a fab Christmas.

I recently placed an order with Rainbow Connection using money I received for Christmas. I treated myself to 3 polishes including the stunning Unicorn which is a polish from Picture Polish made in collaboration with Brit Nails.

Unicorn is a turquoise crelly base with pink and silver glitter running through it and a pink sheen.

In my photos I am wearing Sally Hansen base coat, 2 coats of Unicorn, another coat or Sally Hansen base coat and a coat of Sally Hansen Insta Dri top coat. Adding a coat of base coat before top coat may seem a little odd but I discovered this tip from Polishedways on YouTube to help manis last longer. So far it is working because I wore this mani for 5 full days and before I got a chip. I type for a living and usually this causes both tip wear and chipping!

Do any of you guys have any other tips for making your manis last? If so, I'd love to read them below. If you try Polishedways' tip let her know how you get on.

I hope you love this polish as much as I do, it's even prettier in real life.

Until next time, Lou x

December 2015 Nail Box UK

Hi guys

This is my third Nail Box UK subscription box.

The polishes in this box include Nails Inc Bloomsbury Way from the Blossom collection. This is a little confusing because I have another Nails Inc polish with the same name! The second polish in this box is Morgan Taylor Best Ball Gown Ever. This brand is new to me. Before I saw the name of this polish or looked into it I mentioned to my sister that it looks like Cinderella's dress then I discovered it is from a Cinderella collection! The third polish is Rimmel Marshmellow Heaven. All three of these polishes are new to my collection.

In addition this box contained Elegant Touch professional slanted tweezers and a white Sally Hansen I Love Nail Art stylo.

In my opinion this box was much more original than the last one.

Has anyone else received this box? What do you think of it?
