Eline’s Top 3 Nail Polishes for Autumn

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 …

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.

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 Nail Polish. 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.

natural pedicure at home

Summer is supposedly here. I’ve been outside enjoying the sunshine on the day I’m writing this but days like these have been few and far between. I can definitely count on one hand the days I’ve worn sandals this year. Nevertheless I’ve still worn them and that means that I’ve had to prep my feet for their public airing. No dead skin, callouses or roughness on …

Maison d’Anu Electric Avenue Nail Polish

I am a massive nail polish aficionado, so when an email popped into my inbox about a brand I had not heard of offering nail polishes with no formaldehyde, toulene, DBP or camphor I knew I had to try them. My usual nail polish of choice is OPI, I love going to Selfridges to buy them as it always feels like a special treat. You will …
