Mani Monday: OPI Kermit Me To Speak

So, I haven’t painted my nails in AGES (renovating ruins your motivation by having your mani ruined instantly, guys). So I was pretty excited for this little beauty to land on my doorstep. If you weren’t aware, OPI released a line to coincide with the release of the first Muppets movie, and they have done it again this time around for Muppets: Most Wanted, and there are some gorgeous shades!

Look at the glitters!!

And today I want to show you the most interesting (in my opinion) of the set: Kermit Me To Speak.

Review: Maybelline Express (Nail Polish) Remover

Maybelline are my knight in polish free armour.

Somewhere in the vicinity of 2 years ago I discovered the beauty of nail polish remover tubs. Sally Hansen had brought one out and it was the answer to my prayers. But one day, it disappeared from the shelves, never to be seen again. To say I was heartbroken was an understatement. I used that tub until it was dry. In that time, other brands had brought out their own versions, but none had lived up to the original. Disintegrating sponges, or other, less effective removers among the problems.

Enter Maybelline’s Express Remover.

Top 5: Neon Nail Polishes

With summer finally hitting Melbourne, I thought it was the perfect time to start this series of ‘Top 5’ things I love. And what better way to get into the summer spirit than with my top 5 neon nail polishes!

All of these babies are retina burning, *really* neon polishes. And I LOVE THEM. Neon nails are one of my favourite styles, even though winter. But during summer, I love to embrace the brightness. As you can probably tell, of the five I have picked, two brands pop up twice. I have found that when a brand nails a neon formula, you can almost pick any colour and they will be great!

Review + Swatches: Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat

Fuzzy Wuzzy was a bear, Fuzzy Wuzzy had no hair, Fuzzy Wuzzy wasn’t fuzzy was he?

That was the first thing that popped into my head when I first saw the name for these polishes. But aside from that, I have three of the colours from the range to show you today!

The Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat nail polishes were my first foray into textured polishes. I’m not usually a fan of textured look, but there is something different about these as opposed to liquid sands type polishes (and even the odd one of those will try and tempt the nail polish fiend in me). These are designed with long glitter like fibres to emulate hand spun yarn to give a textured 3D effect. But the thing I do like, is t gives the textured effect without giving much actual texture to the polish, no more than any glitter would. So with a decent top coat, you will have a smooth nail but you still get to enjoy the 3D effect!I can’t stand the bumpy feeling on my nails (cue shudder).
