3X BeautyBay Festive Polishes | Swatches, Review & GIVEAWAY.

Hi loves!

I hope you're all well? I've been battling through feeling ill but I'm slowly on the mend. I haven't managed to do much this week and it's taken me a few days just to get these 3 polishes swatched, bad times.

I figured I'd get a post up to atleast finish the week off and hopefully start fresh come Monday, plus I'm ending it in a fun way too so that makes up for it, right? ;)

As you may notice by the title, along with swatching these 3 polishes I am also giving a set of these away too! Stay tuned until the end for that :)

BeautyBay have launched 6 brand new festive nail polishes.

"These gorgeous new BeautyBay The Collection glitter polishes range in gradients of subtle to dense glitter for a sophisticated grown-up glimmer. Wear alone or later over your favourite shades to create mesmerising multi-dimensional effects."

Fairy Lights Twinkle On Fifth Avenue | a stunning mix of holographic gold glitter. So yummy! I have shown one coat over a simple black base, this polish required a tiny bit of dabbing but besides that, gorgeous!

I tried to show the sparkle in the below macro, it's truly stunning IRL.


Tinsel Sparkles On Michigan Avenue | a super stunning silver liquid metal polish that gives a chrome-like finish. This polish applied beautifully and the sparkles, oolala! Shown is 2 coats alone.

Although my macros seem to make this polish seem slightly 'textured', it's not.

I'm not sure what it is about this polish in particular as it is just 'silver'... but it really is something beautiful.


It's Snowing On Main Street | A stunning iridescent glitter topper. I just love this! I'm a sucker for iridescent glitters though, they are magical!
I decided to apply one coat over Revlon Royal, fab application.

How lovely are they, this is my first time trying BeautyBay polishes and I'm super impressed with them. I would love to try simpler colours to have an actual full on opinion but these - totally for the win!

These launch on October 23rd exclusively on the BeautyBay Website.

Simple Pumpkin

Hi loves!
Sorry for the no show yesterday, I've been a bit under the weather so manis are slow.

Today though I had this prepared over the weekend, a simple pumpkin mani. I'm kind of over the gore I keep seeing so I decided to keep it easy and not so 'ew!' :)

For this I used TipTop Orange You Lovely with dry brush black tips using Jacava Jet Black. 
On my ring finger I again used Jacava Jet Black followed by white paint for the pumpkins face, after that I used TipTop Orange You Lovely and Nina Ultra Pro Orange Flame.

My kids enjoyed this mani, bless them! 
I love this simple look and it's super easy to do on children too, bonus.

Are you a fan of the gore or do you rather the simple halloween style?

Enjoy all!
