Monthly Favourites - August 2016

Wednesday, 31 August 2016

August has flown by so quickly, it genuinely feels like only last week I was writing my July Monthly Favourites post. I have had such a lovely month and although it has gone quicker than chocolate does in my house, it's so lovely to be one step closer to Autumn and in turn Christmas.

Happy Friday everyone, I hope you've had a great week. Mine has been amazing, the weather has been lovely and it's been chock full of polish, a great combination (although I am looking forward to a cooler, wetter weekend).

New Barry M Autumn/Winter Launches - 2016 Edition

Wednesday, 24 August 2016

PR Sample
Happy Hump Day, hasn't it been a scorcher? Yes I'm being super British today and have non-stop chatted about the weather to EVERYONE! The sunny days have been lovely but for a sight seeing trip around London, it was a little ... uncomfortable/sweaty. I had to make an emergency stop off at Primark to grab some new shoes because my sandals were rubbing like a biatch and I can't tell you how many 'plaster' stop offs I had to make throughout the day. Thankfully London is filled with lots of lovely places to eat cake and ice-cream so I combined them both.


The reason for my trip to London was for Barry M's Autumn/Winter product launch (yay but totally ironic given the weather). It seems like only last month I was in London for their Spring event (see my blog post here) and only yesterday that they launched their Summer range (see my post here), however despite the many protests of some (you know who you are), the retail world is fully embracing the change in season and I am right there with them.

Primark PS Beauty New Autumn Nail Polish

Monday, 22 August 2016

Ok so I don't want to rub it in, but when you're not at work, Mondays are amazing. I started my day off with a long lie in, a very leisurely shower and a cosy afternoon watching the last half of Season 3 of Under The Dome while swatching new and exciting nail polishes, 4 of which I'm going to show you today.

Primark nail polishes are my guilty pleasure, their sleek packaging, cheap price point and inviting colours all tempt me to load my basket with them every time I pop into a store.

Betsey Johnson Wallpaper Inspired Nail Art

Sunday, 21 August 2016

Sunday's are the best days, especially when you don't have work tomorrow. I've had such a restful day but I've managed to fit some nail art in and thought I'd share that with you here.


A little while ago I was browsing through IG, one of those 'click through, click through, click inception' type browsings and I came across this image on Betsey Johnson's instagram page.


Nails Inc Paint Can Spray - Good As Gold

Hooray for Fridays and hooray for rain. I can't tell you how much of a good mood this rainy day has put me in (and I'm not even being sarcastic). I'm wearing knitwear, tights and boots again and am just itching for Autumn to be here. I even spotted some tubs of Roses, Quality Street and Heroes while in Tesco earlier and that just topped off my happiness. Anyone else looking forward to the change in season?

Nail Art Using My Rainbow Favourites

Wednesday, 17 August 2016

Happy Wednesday all, hope you're having a lovely week. Yesterday I posted about my mid year rainbow favourites, you can read all about it here if you haven't seen it already.


Today I thought I would do some nail art using all the nail polishes I featured in that post (there were 12). Now my first thought was to do some kind of waterfall mani or crazy gradient, but then I wanted something a lot more 'chunky'. I ended up with this and added some black and white dots to finish.

A Rainbow of My Favourite Polishes S/S 2016

Tuesday, 16 August 2016

So how is it Tuesday again? These August days are zipping past very quickly (I'm already getting excited for Autumn). Today I thought I'd bring you a new post so I hope you enjoy it.


I've been thinking of doing a Mid Year Favourites style post for a while but I was struggling to narrow down my choice of colours, thus the 'Rainbow' part was born.

Models Own - Polish For Tans 2016

Tuesday, 9 August 2016

Happy Tuesday everyone, today I'm bringing you the super bright 2016 addition to the Models Own 'Polish For Tans' range and I'm so excited about it. Models Own are killing it on the bright and bold front this year, their Soft Pop collection was a winner (read my review here) and I know that this new 5 piece will be just as popular.

This is the third year that Models Own have released new shades into this extended collection and 2016's additions are just as stunning as the previous ones (albeit more pink themed).

MeeBox July 2016 - Rio Edition

Saturday, 6 August 2016

Happy sunny Saturday everyone, are you up to anything fun today?

Last night the Rio Olympics kicked off with the opening ceremony, did you catch it on TV? I was in bed long before the footage started but I did catch some of the highlights this morning. I have to admit to hating sports coverage on TV (sorry), but there's something about the Olympics that captures my interest and I can't help but watch it. I love flicking between the different events but my faves have to be the gymnastics, diving, BMX and athletics.



I thought I would honour the occasion by reviewing MeeBox's July 2016 edition today, which they rather cleverly themed around the Rio Olympics.

Happy Wednesday, how are you today? I've been so busy already this week and I am trying to make August as positive and productive as possible, which is keeping me out of trouble and my blog filled with gorgeous nail pictures.

You may remember back on the 10th July I posted this post: L.O.G Cosmetics - Beautician Collection Pt1, well today I have the second part. Seems the lovely people over at L.O.G Cosmetics loved my swatches so much that they wanted to send me the rest of the collection (thank you so much), so I have those for you today.

The Beautician collection is composed of 12 gorgeous colours in a variety of finishes and if you didn't catch my first post, these polishes are 5-free and vegan friendly. Something I honestly think all nail polishes should be in this day and age.

Today I have a polish that will be sure to brighten up this dreary Tuesday. I was recently sent this gorgeous Leighton Denny colour and it's the perfect antidote to this gloomy, wet weather that's hit since August arrived.
