Review of OPI Pure Lacquer Nail Apps by beautybuff

Advantages: patterns are brill
Disadvantages: drying out, no staying power

When I saw the OPI nail apps I was giddy with excitement, I love OPi and nail stickers so this was my version of heaven. Well, the gushing stops here. I bought them in Geometric sparkle although they were available in many other tempting patterns. What ... Read review

Tippex Nails
Review of Color Club Nail Varnish - Heirloom Pearls by beautybuff

Advantages: May be OK on toes in summer
Disadvantages: Not a quality polish in my opinion

I was really impressed last month when Birchbox UK (a beauty subscription box) asked us which nail varnish we would like out of four in our next beauty box. I chose Heirloom Pearls, a neutral shade as I thought it would be ideal for everyday wear. First ... Read review

Magnetic Nails - science fiction no longer
Review of Barry M Magnetic Nail Paint by taleoftwobooks

Advantages: good colour, very attractive designs possible, magnets are inter-changable (extra value for money)
Disadvantages: can get messy, may require more than one attempt

What is it? So. Magnetic nail varnish – nope, it doesn’t do cool things like holding your cutlery for you, attracting pins or (thankfully) cars. It also (shouldn’t) set off any security alarms… Magnetic nail varnish has its name because it is a type ... Read review

Thanks for infoxx by Chippytarka
hi chippytarka - Definitely not everyday wear! They peel off the backing and apply straight to the nail. You can choose the best size and then trim off the end with nail scissors. No shaping required for me. No stretching needed either. By day three they were easy to peel off and any leftover residue (glue) came off with normal nail varnish remover. Katy x by beautybuff

The only coat my nails wear
Review of Nails Inc Kensington Caviar Top Coat by beautybuff

Advantages: Fast dry, conditions and adds unbelievable glass like shine, but best worn over Nails Inc polishes
Disadvantages: ...the cost is crippling!

When I do my nails with normal nail polish, I always use the Nails Inc Kensington Caviar base coat and matching Top Coat. It's expensive but I also find it's the best so it's worth paying for as it makes my manicure last a few days longer than normal top ... Read review
