No7 Gel-Look Shine Deep Wine swatch

Hi everyone,
So today I thought I'd show you swatches of the gorgeous No7 Gel-Look Shine nail polish Deep Wine. This nail polish has been one I've been after for a long time - I was on the hunt for a pinky/burgundy nail polish for so long! I had the exact colour in my head but I couldn't find it anywhere until I saw this at No7! Personally I'm not a big fan of wearing red nail polish by itself, so this raspberry colour is the perfect compromise for me!

No7 has always been one of my go-to brands for as long as I cant remember, but I feel their nail polish collection isn't showcased on blogs that much for some reason! Personally I love the brand - they're the reason my nail polish collection is so big! - every time me or my mum would get a No7 voucher we'd buy a new nail polish - I think we practically have every shade they sell!

Anyway, enough about my love for No7, onto the swatches:

This nail polish is available from Boots and is £7.00. 
Normally I never pay full price for products from No7 as I always end up buying them with the No7 vouchers Boots give at the till sometimes!

For these swatches I used 2 coats of No7 Gel-Look Shine nail polish Deep Wine.
Application was really easy, especially as No7 have wide brushes which I love! The formula of these is just slightly thicker than normal No7 nail polishes but it wasn't a problem at all. 
As you can see the nail polish definitely lives up to its name - it is definitely high shine!

Here is a closer look:

Overall I think this shade is stunning. Its classy, elongates your nails and has a lovely gloss finish too! I'd definitely recommend it!
Have you tried No7 nail polish before?
Do you like this shade?
Let me know what you think

Fancy French Manicure

Hi everyone,
So today's design actually matches an outfit I wore to family event on the weekend. It was actually the first time I've worn and Indian outfit since October so I could wait to dress up again! So of course the biggest task was decided what to do on my nails (as well as hair and makeup!)! I opted for a simple design as my outfit was quite simple as well. Here's what I came up with:

I used No7 Vivid Violet and No7 Hot to Trot

Lasercut Gradient

Hi everyone,
So for today's nail art I decided to revisit striping tape. A lot of bloggers actually find striping tape annoying to use but I actually quite like it - there's something quite exciting about peeling off the tape to reveal the design you've created! The only downside is that it is time consuming, but once you get over that you can achieve some stunning results!

I used Sinful Colors Snow Me White, Models Own HyperGel Turquoise Gloss and Models Own HyperGel Blue Glint

Easter Bunny Nails

Hi everyone,
So as it's Easter weekend I decided to some themed nails for the occasion! Today was actually the first time I've sat and done nail art for a while now, and it's been really nice. It's made me realise that I need to take time out from everyday life and do something for me - paint my nails! I've been missing creativity in my life for the past few weeks/months so by creating this design I could feel the creativeness inside me wanted to come out!

Anyway, for this design I decided to focus on one specific character: the Easter bunny! - I decided to have it as a sort of accent nail peeking through!
Here's my design:

I used Models Own Top Turquoise, Barry M Nail Art Pen in White, Max Factor Diva Violet, Sinful Colors Snow Me White, Rimmel London Lycra Pro Aqua Cool, Models Own Strawberry Tart
