Beauty UK Red Royale swatches and how I wore it.


Back in June I took part in a series of Guess the Polish posts with a giveaway linked to the launch of a new range of Beauty UK polishes described as "Perfect pigment, statement shine, no rival polish lasts like mine".  Today I have a polish from that new range to share, Red Royale with swatches and how I wore it.

I have used two coats of Red Royale in the pictures below, no top coat.  It is so glossy alone!  Apologies for the red middle finger, I had an eczema flare up again recently.

Beauty UK Tealed With a Kiss and Purple Pizzazz swatches, review and how I wore them / tutorial


Today seems a picture heavy post as I have swatches AND how I wore x 3 plus a brief tutorial!  I have two polishes from the Beauty UK Nails collection which retail at £2.99, both cremes and we know I love a good creme polish!

Firstly Tealed with A Kiss, two coats, no top coat.  Thumb has three coats, I smudged it moving from breakfast bar to light box (3 steps!) the extra coat smoothed it out a treat.

Liz Earle Ebb Tide and Pink Perpetue swatches and how I wore them

Today I have swatches of two polishes from Liz Earle, Ebb Tide and Pink Perpetue.  I should also be showing a "how I wore it" set of photos, but the camera decided to eat them :/  I do have a description though!!

I have been a huge fan of Liz Earle for many years, I used to religiously watch her shows on QVC and would even Sky+ them if I was at work!  As a range it was probably the first real skin care range I got into in my early 20s, I did experiment with other QVC brands, but kept coming back to Liz Earle, one of the few ranges which didn't cause me any type of skin reactions.  The "newer" additions to the Liz Earle Family have been make up and nail polish collections, I have two to try out.  Liz Earle polishes are enriched with avocado and borage oils and free from toluene.

Firstly I have swatches of "Ebb Tide" which described as "An elegant muted mushroom with a soft hint of mauve. Very versatile."  Pictures below are two coats, no top coat.
