Nail Polish Galore!

I know that its been a while since I last blogged, and I have so much to share with you all.
All the while I haven't blogged I have been buying some great products that I've either seen advertised or read about in other blogs from my fellow beauty bloggers.

My main obsession at the moment, well it always has been, is nail varnish.
 I have a HUGE bag just crammed with polishes of every colour.
The ones I have been buying the last few weeks are getting me into the mood for Spring and some are my beloved dark colours.

So I will start with Revlon nail polishes as I seem to be having a love affair with the brand just lately! 

Revlon Nail Enamel gives up to ten days of lasting colour and shine and delivers gorgeously smooth, chip resistant colour to nails.

I chose some beautiful colours on one of my trips to Boots a few weeks ago, and even better as they are on 3 for 2 at the moment. Win!

So I will introduce you to the colours I purchased:

First up we have the delightful Enchanting. 
A beautiful lilac with a hidden pinky kind of shimmer, but you have to look really close to see it.
I think this colour is a must for the Spring, its so girly and cute!

Next we have Urban.
Its a really deep navy blue which is gorgeous, as mentioned above I love dark colours.

Posh is a lovely emerald green that I wore the other week and you would not believe how many complements I had from people! A definite must for the Spring! And safe to stay that I will be wearing this to celebrate St Patrick's Day.

 Impulsive is a kinda grape purple, which once dried is super shiny and not too dark. Again, purple is my favourite colour so when I saw this I just had to have it!

Next up is from Revlon's Top Speed Fast Dry range, the colour: Bubble.
Now, I'm not a massive fan of the colour Pink, but this looked beautiful in the bottle so I popped it in my basket.
I haven't tried this on myself as yet, but my lovely friend Rach volunteered to model it for me and I fell in love with the colour instantly. 
Its an amazing hot pink that will be great in the Summer.

Last of all we have Stormy Night from the Colorstay collection.
It's only been in the last few months I have branched out with different colour nail polishes.
Stormy Night is a dusky brown/beige and is stunning on my nails.
I do sometimes like to tone it down and this polish definitely does that, I will be seeing a lot more of this on my nails in the near future.

Revlon Nail Enamels are £6.49 at Boots stores all over the UK.

Next we have Avon's Nailwear Pro+
I had this with my January order and the shade is Lioness.
Its a really nice terracotta/coral shade and I love the brush in these polishes, they're quite wide and gives great coverage in just two coats. I had this on my nails for three days without it chipping.

Since I discovered MUA last year I always pop into my local Superdrug to see what's in stock. Unfortunately, the MUA stand is never really well stocked in most Superdrug stores and the stands can be quite messy.
Anyway, I picked up three of their £1 nail polishes last week, I really love the colours and they give great coverage.

Natural Days is a sweet baby pink colour, which is really cute on the nails if you're just going for a natural look. I think this will go well as a pastel French manicure.

Bold Blue is a great stand out colour for the nails, and only two coats of this really pops! It reminds me of peacock feathers!

I actually bought this colour last summer and after using it almost every week I ran out, so I had to go and buy another Bright Pink and it certainly lives up to its name.

In previous blogs I have mentioned Asda's own gel effect nail polishes and I have almost every colour on the shelf.
This Nude Beige is beautiful.
As previously mentioned, I sometimes like to tone it down a little and this beauty of a colour does just that. Its so shiny too!

I am really loving gel nail polishes at the moment, I'm just a sucker for high shine!
Barry M's Gelly Polish in Blueberry is to die for.
Amazing coverage with two coats and the shine is stunning.
I am 100% in love with this polish, just beautiful.

And last but certainly not least is Rimmel's Salon Pro nail polish in Kate Moss's shades, this one is named Hip Hop.
This is another high shine, gel like polish which again, I really love.
Its a really bright red/orange which is going to be gorgeous.

I think I have enough polishes to open a salon to be honest, and I definitely will need an even bigger bag for them all soon.

Have you tried any of these polishes?
Do you have a favourite polish?

Branching out...

Just a quick post guys, I'm not going to bore you with why I haven't posted just lately.
I've been busy with work and social commitments, but I have a number of posts lined up for you all!

First things first, All Things Bright & Beautiful has a new look!
I've tried to make the blog look snazzy, but not too busy, so I hope you all like the new look!

Secondly, I thought it would be good to advertise over Facebook by making an official All Things Bright & Beautiful page! You can visit my page and like it if you want to, I will appreciate every like I get!

I will be updating the page with links to my blog, photos and much more!

So I will leave it there and will be back with a new post tomorrow.
