Please do bear in mind that this review will only be relevant to some people; for … Continue reading Bliss Kiss vs A England nail oil

Purple Reign – an A England comparison

I'm pretty sure Adina has an unhealthy obsession with purples (much like my obsession with green!) so I have decided to do a comparison of the purple polishes we have so far in the A England collections.

December Nailbox

My final review (for a while at least) of subscription boxes. I've had 6 Nailboxes and 5 Meeboxes now and as much as I love them I have enough polishes that I'm mainly getting dupes so sadly I've cancelled them. The tools this month were some Elegant Touch Professional Slanted Tweezers (I have tons of … Continue reading December Nailbox

It's still December, I win this month! This is going to be my final Meebox (for a while at least).
