The Neverending Pile Challenge: Dupes!

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the Neverending Pile Challenge is Dupes – match an untried polish with a tried polish. Usually when I am buying polish I will try to avoid any duplicates – I’d rather spend my money on something I don’t already have – but in this case I had one I could use for this theme. A few months ago I took part in a polish swap and one of the polishes I was gifted was this silver texture: (more…)

Swatches: Tip Top Silence Collection

Hi everyone!

I was recently browsing through the shelves at Clicks when a Tip Top shade I didn’t recognise caught my eye. I soon realised one of the new collections they’ve been teasing us with for ages had been released! I managed to find all 6 polishes from the new Silence collection and I just had to show you.

Before we get to the pictures, I must apologise for anything strange looking with my thumb nail on the first few. I had a bad break and I tried to patch it – after the first few I realised it wasn’t working so well so I just shortened all my nails (so you’ll also see a change in nail shape halfway through the post!) At least you still get to see some beautiful polishes! (more…)

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme for the Neverending Pile Challenge is a boutique polish and I must admit that I’ve cheated a little on this one. The polish I’ve used isn’t really a boutique polish, but it was the closest I had. It’s not a drugstore polish, it’s only available in limited stores here, and it is at the higher end of what I’ve paid for a polish… so it’s just going to have to count! (more…)

Swatches: Rimmel Space Dust Collection

Hi everyone!

Today I have swatches of all 5 polishes from Rimmel’s Space Dust collection. I know for you US/UK ladies this collection is old news, and probably already disappearing from your shelves, but it is a new arrival here in South Africa. I was so excited to see it since I’d loved all the swatches I saw that I bought all 5 the second I saw them. When I got home I wondered if I really needed them all, but I am glad I did get them all because the couple I might have skipped, I ended up loving! (more…)
