OPI Blue Chips

OPI Blue Chips
When it comes to nail polish, I've never really been into OPI.  There's no denying they have some beautiful shades but with such small nails to work with I find them really hard to use.  Of course some shades are worth the sacrifice so when I saw OPI's Blue Chips, I knew I had to pick it up.

Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré

Embryolisse La Creme Concentrate
If you've never heard of Embryolisse, their Lait-Crème Concentré is a cult beauty product which you'll find in most makeup artists makeup bags.  If that fact alone doesn't peak your curiosity, I don't know what will.  It's essentially a moisturiser, primer and makeup remover in one which is said to suit all skin types.  After trying a sample of Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré, I knew I had to pick up a larger version and see what all the fuss is about.

Rococo Nail Apparel in No Shrinking Violet

Rococo No Shrinking Violet
Another metallic nail polish you say? Surprise surprise!  While the Space NK sale was on, I decided to treat myself to a new polish in the form of Rococo Nail Apparel in No Shrinking Violet.  Rococo is one of those brands I always see on the Space NK website but haven't heard anyone speak about them.  While the polish was reduced from £12 to £3, I decided I didn't have much to lose and decided to give it a go.

Avon Gel Finish in Fabulous

Over the past few weeks I can't seem to get enough of gel finish polishes.  For someone who changes their nail polish shade very often it's never really worth it to get the real deal so I'm continuing my quest for the perfect gel effect finish.  So far I've tried Barry M, Models Own and Nails Inc's versions but this time I'm giving the Avon Gel Finish in Fabulous a try to see how it compares.
