The New Black

allnightlong1I’m back, baby! My nails are still a lot shorter than I like them, but they are in much betterallnightlong2 condition, and I’m really hoping they’ve stopped splitting for now. I have so much polish to try out, but I thought I’d start with a simple one, so this is Eye Candy All Night Long, which is not only my new favourite black, but is also on sale in larger Sainsburys stores for just Ā£3 at the moment! It’s thick and smooth and would probably have been fine with just one coat, if I wasn’t so cackhanded. I’ve layered it with a single coat of 2true Glitterati Shade 5 (Ā£1.99/Superdrug), and then H&M Matte Top Coat (Ā£2.99/H&M), which is one of the more satin finish mattes, but I think it works.

Unfortunately, in the harsh light of day, I can see that I was a bit hasty with my glitter, and there are bubbles on a couple of my nails, but I think that was just the overexcitement at finally being able to a manicure again! I don’t mind though, as it’s still a really cute mani.

In other news, my last two birthday polishes arrived recently (thanks, Emma!), the gorgeous Teal Glitter, and Reclaim (mini) by Nubar. I have also recently solved my polish storage solution for the time being, which is great since keeping them all in oversize shoe boxes under my bed wasn’t really ideal. And I’m working on getting a proper camera/lightbox setup, so hopefully I’ll be able to start doing this whole thing right soon.

  1. Hurrah! I look forward to seeing all of these birthday polishes making their blog debut šŸ™‚ And I love this combo, particularly the mattified version! I’ve still not played much with mattifying things, but I only really like it in moderation (ay, in nail art rather than across the whole hand), or particularly with glitters and flakies, so this totally works for me šŸ™‚

    • I’m slowly getting through the birthday stuff, but I’ve been trying to space them out a bit. My untested stack is getting ridiculous now, I have about 30 polishes waiting to be tried out!

      I really need get a really strong matte, the only ones I have are a satin finish. I’m told the Butter London one is good, so might have to nip into C. London at some point and check out the stand in Boots. I’ve got a good tenner in loyalty points, which will help šŸ™‚
