Kiko Poker Nail Lacquer from the Daring Game Collection Swatches and Review

Kiko Daring Game Collection swatches and review

Kiko's A/W14 Limited Edition Collection is called Daring Game and has a poker theme.  Among various make up palettes (which are so pretty) they have also released 6 gel effect 5-free nail polishes.  The top of the square caps have dice numbers on them, which is a fun poker touch to the packaging.

I've been really enjoying working with some brand new indie polish makers recently - and today I have another one!  It's called Box Polish and the polishes are made by a lovely lady called Amy.

New Models Own Diamond Luxe Collection Swatches and Review

I never fail to be excited when I get news of a new collection from Models Own - especially when I have to keep it under my hat for a few days before it's announced officially!  Although we saw the new Sweet Shop Collection only a couple of months ago, Models Own are bringing a new ten-polish selection to stores later this month in the form of the Diamond Luxe Collection*, which contains real diamond dust!  To be honest it's the closest I'm getting to diamonds right now!  The diamond dust is said to give the polishes a 'multi-dimensional super-sparkly finish, emulating that of any real diamond' so read on to see if I thought they lived up to that...

Amazing Chic Nails Autumn Collection Swatches and Review

There's a new indie polish brand on the scene and it goes by the name of Amazing Chic Nails created by the lovely Fiona.  It's a Canadian company but she ships internationally so everybody can get their hands on her gorgeous polishes.  All the polishes are 3 free and vegan friendly, which is always good to know (I love that lots of indie brands are - it's a shame that not more of the big high street brands can claim the same).  

The Amazing Chic Nails Autumn Collection* (released on September 1st) is a gorgeous variety of glitter toppers, shimmer polishes and opalescent polishes - and all have names inspired by the UK which is a fun touch.  Without further ado, here are the swatches of all eight polishes in the Autumn Collection...

New from Too Faced: Bulletproof Eyeliner, Cat Eyes Palette and Cocoa Powder Foundation

New make up from Too Faced: Bulletproof eyeliner, Cat Eyes palette and Cocoa Powder Foundation

Back last October when I was in New York I discovered the make up brand Too Faced and wrote a review of the products I bought then here.  I loved the fun packaging and the Natural Eyes palette I bought then has become one of my favourite go-to palettes because the eyeshadows have great pigment and last really well.  Since I have rather fallen for the brand, I was gutted to miss out on the launch event for their latest releases as I was in Istanbul en route to Africa.  However, I've been testing out the  new products over the last week and I am as delighted with them as I was with my first haul last year.
