I love nail polish, in fact I probably own a few too many – if that is at all possible and one great thing about the season changing is, new colours emerge onto the shelves, and new trends come forward that we can delight over.
StarGazer is of course a brand not to be beaten with its edgy colours, and attitude filled products and it has been a pleasure to be using them again.
I was sent 2 nail polishes to play with first up is 516.
Trying these reminded me how much I actually like StarGazer varnishes, I actually find them really easy to apply, I can't quite put my finger on what makes it so easy for me, but hey when it's right it's right. I found with this glossy grey you could actually get away with just one coat of polish, though two just topped it right off for me. Both were for me touch dry quickly meaning I could at least get on with the lighter jobs around the place.
I wasn't sure about this glossy grey before I put it on, I'm a black or white girl no middle ground for me! But once I had applied a full hand I found myself falling in love with it, this grey has by itself turned me to the grey-side and I'm even thinking I'm going to try matting out every other nail and seeing how that looks next. (Thank you number 516 you shall forever be my first grey love).
Next up we have 515 (maybe I should have done these the other way around but hey who likes conventional!).
Looks maybe deceiving with this little beauty, it's actually a deep gorgeous red. One coat leaves more of the red showing through while two gives you more of a deep blacker colour that when the light shines on it the red shows though (as used in the below photographs).
One of the best things about these polishes as well as their durability has to be that they only cost £3 (14ml) meaning you're not going to be breaking the bank when you splash out on these – though I dare you to try and pick up just one.
If gorgeous polishes weren't enough for this post, StarGazer are full of fantastic ideas when it comes to glitzing up your manicure, along with gems, diamonds, false nails and UV Reactive top coats and they sell some amazing glitter shakers.
These glitters work all over the body, as well of course being great for shaking on to your nails – now I'm not the greatest with nail art, and I'm sure someone else could have come up with amazing ideas but I went with the old fail safe, the accent nail, covering the good old ring finger with a nice dosing of bling.
I have to say I think this beautiful copper went really well with the deep red, finishing it right off – now maybe next time I just need to be one step braver and try something new! Again these come in at an amazing £3 for 5g.
To grab yourself any of the above – or check out all the other items and colours head on over to StarGazers website.
What do you think of the above colours, are they up your street?
