Soigné Nail Polish Swatches and Review


I have been so excited about posting these beautiful polishes from Soigné Botanique because - oh, just look at them!  They are such gorgeous colours.  I've had the photos taken for ages, just haven't had the time to write a post about them, but here they are.  Soigné are a relatively new brand as far as I can tell - and one of the things I love about them (apart from the colours) is that they are 5-free polishes and vegan friendly.  They also have up to 85% plant-sourced natural ingredients, which is reflected in the pretty French names for the polishes.

Models Own Colour Chrome Collection Swatches and Review *Updated - Whole Collection*

Models Own Colour Chrome Collection Swatches and Review

Models Own have done it again!  This time they have released what is possibly my favourite collection to date - and that's saying something when I have waxed lyrical about all the Hypergel polishes.  On Friday they announced the Colour Chrome Collection* - ten metallic foil effect nail polishes.  I've been waiting for some metallic polishes from Models Own for a while, so it is exciting that they have now delivered them!  The formula is consistent across all the polishes (the five I was sent to review anyway) and it paints on really smoothly and isn't streaky.  They suggest that you buff your nails first and don't use a base coat or top coat (which is standard for foil/metallic polishes) and use 2-3 coats to 'help increase durability'.

Acuvue Define Contact Lenses Review - Sparkle and Shimmer for your eyes

Back in the autumn I was asked if I wanted to try out the new 1-Day Acuvue Define contact lenses - being a contact-lens-wearer, the idea of making my eyes more striking with my prescription contact lenses was certainly appealing - particularly as I already use 1-Day Acuvue lenses.
