No7 Moon Shimmer

Hi :)

I was pleasantly surprised by this polish, it’s more complex than it first seems. I don’t even know where to begin. I spent ages staring at it in different light and peering at it up close. It was so enjoyable! I haven’t been surprised by a polish in a long time and if you like subtle polishes then you’ll love this one.

It’s a very pale grey colour with the slightest tinge of lavender. It’s so slight that I’m not even sure it’s there or if my eyes are playing tricks on me. It has flakies and glassflecks so from a distance it looks like a pale grey metallic polish.

The flakies are translucent gold so they are invisible until the light hits them, and even then they are still quite subtle because they are so thin, the gold colour is weak. It has lots of small glassflecks that are blue – this was my favourite part of the polish – and soo pretty against the pale grey.

All of this is only really apparent up close. It’s a polish to be studied and enjoyed for it’s subtleties. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I hope you do too. :)

Have you tried any of the No7 polishes? Are there any other colours I should try?

Thanks for looking!

Wet n Wild I Need A Refresh-Mint

Hi :)

I’m having lots of fun experimenting with nail art but it’s so scary because it’s very difficult to make it look like it does on Pinterest! Those girls are professionals! (Nail Technicians, not the other kind of professional. ;)

Today I thought, “Why try one nail art effect, when you can try them all?” and I ended up with dots, stripes, chevrons and (always) glitter!

– I used NYC Frozen Metal (silver) under Wet n Wild I Need A Refresh-Mint (green) for the stripes on my index finger.

– My Middle finger is two coats of No7 Snow Wash over I Need A Refresh-Mint.

– Ring finger is Rimmel Disco Fever, hand placed, over NYC Frozen Metal.

– Pinkie is Deborah Lippman Amazing Grace overĀ I Need A Refresh-Mint.
