Eline’s Top 3 Nail Polishes for Autumn

elinestop3

When it comes to nail polish, I’m a big spender. Not necessarily because I like expensive nail polishes but because I just can’t resist them. At the moment – I recently spring-cleaned my beauty drawer – I have about 50 bottles of nail polish in all shapes and sizes, and colours! I’m probably nowhere near the world record, but I’m only 23 so I have …

We’ve all seen the ever-so popular ombré hair that’s been an ongoing trend in the last few years, but this season ombré has turned to nails! It’s time to flaunt your fingers as metallics, nudes, minimalism and ombré hit the scene and takeover Autumn/Winter. What is ombré? Ombré meaning ‘Shaded’ in French is the gradual blending of one colour hue to another, usually moving tints …

Non­-Toxic Nails from Little Ondine

2015-biteable-beauty-little-ondine-3

Every now and then I receive a product that gets me a little bit excited! Little Ondine is one of those products. I thought this formula was not only water-based, not 3­ 5­ or 7­ free but ALL free, as well as a formula that really works. However, once I received the ingredients list there was one ingredient on there that doesn’t float my boat: triethanolamine. This is …

Clean Up Your Nail Polish Remover!

BB_Nail_Polish_Remover

Once nail polish wears off and starts chipping, it’s time to remove it. Most mainstream nail polish removers, however, contain a bunch of ingredients, which may help you to remove the coats of your nail polish, but could get into your health’s way at the same time. One ingredient you may therefore avoid in your nail polish remover is Acetone. Added as a solvent and …

Adding a pop of colour onto your nails can be the crowning last step to complete your outfit, or maybe you just like how clean your nails look with a hint of colour on them. However, what most nail polish lovers don’t think about whenever they get their nails done at the salon or give themselves a manicure at home, is that most popular nail …

A couple of months ago I was invited to meet Tom Pellereau, the inventor of Stylfile, for coffee and cake at Drink, Shop & Do. This was not the first time I had been to this joint, for Nadja of Throw Me Something Beautiful and Olivia of Beauty from the Fjords invited me to the Bloggers Tea Party there last year. Last time I succumbed to …

2014-Biteable-beauty-hj-manicure-display

I’m so pleased to have discovered HJ Manicure. Well, actually Helen discovered me, as she approached us earlier on in the year to work on their re-launch. A couple of weeks ago we had a launch event for the AW14 shimmer collection colours at Orico London on The Kings Road. Whenever I go to paint my nails from my HJ Manicure box it is such …

Zoya Nail Products

Zoya-Nails-Set

I’ve been a fan of Zoya nail products for a while now, ever since I first stumbled upon them in Whole Foods. They won Biteable Best of Beauty Award for Best Nail Polish in 2013. I love how easy the product is to apply and how long it stays chip-free for, in fact it was awarded for being the longest wearing nail polish by an independent …

Biteable Beauty Best Of – Nail Polish

Bad-Apple-Cosmetics-Nail-Polishes

I have to say that at first I didn’t quite “get” how to apply Bad Apple Cosmetics. I didn’t receive any literature with the gorgeous set of colours I was sent and I eagerly applied my first coat, waited till I thought that layer was dry and then reapplied. Sadly it messed up, for the first layer was not dry and I therefore did not …
