How great is it that The Body Shop are delving into the nail polish market again? I seem to remember them doing polish a while ago, but the Colour Crush range is fresh, shiny and new! It launched in October 2014 and these have been sitting on my desk in the (very long) review queue for a while, but I'm regretting that now as they're quite fabulous and I wish I'd tried them out sooner! I have 5 shades from the range to share with you today

With every new collection, people are always interested in the stamping capabilities of the polishes, especially with chromes and foils! I'm pleased to report that the new Colour Chromes from Models Own make great stamping polishes, and I've done a quick look to share with you today.

This collection is LONG overdue to make an appearance on my blog. I actually swatched these very soon after receiving them, but then I did something I've never done before - lost all the images. I'm not sure how I did it, but I was absolutely livid! It really put me off going back to them, because even if the second set are as good as the first, it'll never seem that way to me. I finally bit the bullet though and here they are - the Barry M Glitterati collection!

The first release of 2015 from Models Own comes in the form of the Colour Chrome collection, and just LOOK at those bottles! They could contain tar and I'd still buy them looking like that...although thankfully the contents is much more pleasing ;) I have 5 shades to share with you today!

We're still firmly in those gloomy winter days, and this look reminded me of exactly that! It's not what I set out to do (is it ever?!) but the addition of the white glitter top coat on the grey and blue background looks like snow on a wintery afternoon - I think so, at least (I'm obsessed with snow, can you tell?)

Hi! I've got swatches of some random NYC polishes today (I say spam, it's only 6 really, but I've decided I can call that spam!) NYC is a brand I've been familiar with for years but only recently started to really love! I discovered I had a good few in my stash so decided to swatch all the most recent ones.

I have 3 beautiful shades from the Midnight Masquerade collection by Morgan Taylor to show you today - My Kind of Ball Gown, Jest-er Kidding and The Big Reveal. I've also got a swatch of New Year, New Blue from the Holiday 2014 collection.

So, who got some post-Christmas snow? We got quite a bit here, it only lasted a day though :( I absolutely LOVE snow so I'm hoping we get more! I've created a few winter-inspired (winter, not Christmas...I know, Christmas has gone!) tutorials for Barry M, the first being this delicate yet simple snowflake design.

Here is my last look back at 2014, condensed into one post so as not to prattle on too much! I've picked my favourite collections, favourite nail art and rounded up some blogging highlights (along with a lowlight or two) and made some blogging resolutions for 2015 (that's a lie, I totally haven't).

Truthfully I'm not really big on round up posts and end of year lists, so I'm keeping it simple and uncluttered; this will be my only list, followed by a general end of year review. This post was actually supposed to go up earlier but I changed it last minute; I realised I was trying to vary the colours and brands so I wasn't picking too much of the same thing, but then I decided to just pick what I truly loved and not focus on variety. So, here's my top 10 polishes - my only rule was that the polish actually had to have been released in 2014!
