Binky London - Review & Nail Art

PR Sample

I am glad to report that there has been no frozen-style snow storms in my area of the world today (confused, then read yesterdays post here for clarification). However there has been a polish storm of sorts, I've found myself the happy recipient of lots of lovely parcels these last few days and have some of them to show to today. ... imagine if polish actually rained from the sky, now that's weather I wouldn't mind being caught in.

Binky London is a brand I have seen around thanks to the lovely Lauren of The Naily Mail. Until I was sent these samples, I had not thought to buy any. I don't really know why, I think it's because I tend to pick my polish up from shops and I had not seen these in any Superdrug or Boots near me. However I am now kicking myself because these are lovely polishes; the colours, quality and drying time are all great and I am planning to purchase a load more soon.

Binky London was created by Alexandra Felstead of Made in Chelsea fame. Confession time, I have never watched an episode of Made In Chelsea. Not only does Binky London create these amazing nail polishes, but they also do a whole host of other beauty products for a great price.

I decided to single swatch these colours, 1 for time and the 2nd because I am a big lazy bones. However it gave me a good idea of which colours looked good together (all of them) and ended up as the inspiration to my floral nail art below.

Bright Pink, Lemon Drizzle, Sky Blue and Forget Me Not are the most perfect colours for spring/summer. All required 2 coats apart from Lemon Drizzle which needed an extra one. Bright Pink has a shimmer to it and the rest are all cremes.

Gold Rush, Marrakesh and Black are a little subdued compared to the previous 4, however they are all gorgeous and I particularly love Gold Rush. Marrakesh is a great example of the Pantone Color of the Year 2015 - Marsala and you'll find it popping up again on my blog before long. I used 2 coats of Gold Dust and Marrakesh, 3 for Black.

For my nail art I used Gold Rush, Black, Bright Pink, Lemon Drizzle, Sky Blue and Forget Me Not. I have been wanting to do some black outline roses for a while and the combination of these colours was perfect for the flowers. I love this look, it's super fun and I am so glad I got to use as many of these polishes as possible.

You can buy Binky London nail polishes here for £2.95 and I strongly suggest you go and have a little spree. They sometimes do flash sales where you can pick products up from 99p, so it's always worth keeping an eye out if you're looking for even more of a bargain.
