Nina Ultra Pro Samba Sparkle

I went into Sally's UK with my sister a few weeks ago and managed to pick up a few bargains. I'll split my haul over two posts so that it isn't too picture heavy.

First is the Limited Edition Samba Sparkle set. I'm not quite sure which colour is which as the bottles aren't actually labelled and the box doesn't say which is which. I also can't find any swatches on google for these which is really annoying.

These are all textured polishes and they're all really, really pretty! All of these photos were taken with no top coat.


The first colour is this beautiful, bright orange/red shade. There's lots of sparkle in this although this one is a little sheerer than the others. This is three coats.



Next up is this shiny pink shade. Again there is lots of glitter but I don't think this is a colour that suites me so I probably won't be wearing it much. Coverage was fantastic and if you're careful, this could be a one coater.



Last is my favourite of the three. It's a gorgeous deep blue/purple shade again with plenty of glitter. Again, this is pretty much a one coater and it looks fantastic when you add top coat!



The colour names listed on the box are The Rio Deal, Masque-Parade and I Wanna Samba That. It's a real shame that they haven't put labels on the bottles as it means that I can't list them when I use them in my nail art. But they're still pretty so they'll still get used =)

Thanks for reading!

I Love Nail Polish Fall Collection 2014 Preorder!

A few weeks ago, I spotted that I Love Nail Polish opened up a pre-order for their new fall collection and I had to buy a couple of them! I limited myself to two, though I'm kicking myself for not buying Black Orchid too.

The two shades I picked are Fall Semester and Iconic. They're both so incredibly pretty and perfect for the fall (or autumn if you're English like me) season.

Here is my usual bottle shot because I love the cute little boxes that they come in!



Fall Semester - This is a beautiful deep green/teal colour with lots of holographic glitter! The formula was really good and I used three thin coats for these photos.



 Iconic - A stunning gold, holographic polish. Again, the formula was fantastic and I used three thin coats. I only have one photo of this one because it freaked my camera quite a bit and it struggled to focus (it's really that sparkly). I'll put better pictures up on my instagram next time I wear this polish.


I'm really pleased with my two picks. I was a little worried after I ordered Iconic because the swatches I'd seen look paler than it is in real life! Both have a wonderful holographic effect and they actually go really well together.

If you'd like to see the amazing sparkle, there's a video over on my instagram page here!
