Glamming it up with Glitzy Grey’s…

Rimmel Salon Pro Moon and Collection Bedazzled Nail Polish Razzle Dazzle

Grey has to be one of my favourite staple shades! It’s the complimentary tone that blends in perfectly with just about any other colour – from pastel pink to deep rich damson. Of course when it dawned on me that my nail polish collection was missing this essential shade I had to put right to my wrongs and treat my collection to a bottle of ‘Moon’ by Rimmel’s Salon Pro range.

Considering that I’m a huge fan of their renowned Urban Purple *swoon* I really wasn’t expecting to be disappointed by the formula or consistency, however with Moon there seemed to be a very slightly runnier texture. Thankfully, the end result was a beautiful glossy grey, though it did take a few coats to get there – be warned gals, if you don’t have a UV lamp you could be in for a long wait as this is most definitely not the quickest drying formula. However after wafting my hands around for ten minutes between layers, and catching up with a few of my fav You-Tubers (yes Kaily Baute your channel was well and truly stalked for half an hour!) my nails were finally dry enough to admire the final result: Voila…

At £4.49 it’s certainly a pocket friendly price tag for a good quality drugstore polish. If you’re on the hunt for a great staple grey with undertones of blue then I’d definitely recommend checking this shade out. It’s a definite thumbs up from me!

Being a bit of a magpie, it would’ve been sacrilege to stop at just a simple grey… c’mon ladies you all know how much I adore a bit of bling 😉 So seeing as our own moon had been a bit of a heavenly celebrity this past week I couldn’t resist the temptation to add a cosmic sprinkle of glitter with yet another fabulous polish by the Collection Bedazzled range in the shade Razzle Dazzle.

Available from Boots for a mere £2.99, this sparkle encrusted top coat is a guaranteed eye catcher. Okay, it’s usually more of a Christmas polish for me but I couldn’t resist the temptation to glam up my new grey nails.

I must admit, like most glitter polishes it’s renowned as a bit of a pain in the derrière to remove, however I often find that very gently filing the top layer first before soaking my nails in polish remover helps dramatically! As long as you’re prepared to put the effort in you’ll most definitely reap the bedazzling benefits of this sassy polish. It’s affordable, long lasting, glitzy and adds that little bit of glam to liven up any nail colour.

Bada Bling… Gorgeous Glitter Nails

I gotta admit I do love a little sprinkle of sparkle over the nails especially come this time of year when the dark nights are closing in and the twinkle of tea light candles and street lights make everything feel that little bit more festive.

Considering I don’t own a huge selection of sparkly varnish top coats, I’ve had my eye on a few delectable looking dazzlers lately including Sally Hanson’s Gem Crush Polish in the shade Razzle Dazzler, with its soft pink sparkly tones. Ooooh it’s beautiful *swoon* Quite a few times I’ve spotted this little beauty whilst browsing the aisles of Superdrug and for some unknown reason I haven’t yet taken the plunge… that will change during my next trip as my nails are currently crying out for it.

 Twit Twoo *wolf whistle NOT owl* … how pretty is Sally Hansens Razzle Dazzler?

I’m also tempted by a few of the other shades too… aren’t they gorgeous?

Another glorious little sparkler I found browsing through the online pages of House of Fraser is Alexa Sparkle by Nails Inc. This would undoubtedly look stunning over a few of my rich autumnal shades I’ve recently resurrected from the depths of my varnish collection. How delicious would this be over a rich plum polish? I’ll get back to you with the results, but it’s certainly on my seasonal wish list!

However Bedazzled by Collection is what I’m really into at the moment. I picked this up last year after spotting my sister wearing a similar sparkly shade on her nails and I instantly fell in love. I will say, after a few wears I got a tad fed up of the nightmare trying to remove it, those little glitter bits really stick hard so expect you’ll to break out the big guns (a nail file) during a change-over!  Thankfully it’s worth the hassle as it looks gorgeous on, currently I’m wearing it over collections milkshake which is quite a muted peachy /nude colour however it has looked every bit as impressive over pretty much every colour I’ve wore it with, ranging from deep glossy blacks to baby pinks and mint greens. It just adds that little bit of twinkle and is a steal for under a fiver from Superdrug… ooo err!

Lastly, one of my sparkler base coat top-picks is Rimmel Salon Pro in urban purple. Although my camera’s picking it up as a reddy tone in the bottom pic, it’s actually more of a raspberry/maroon purple – it’s one of those impossible one’s to properly describe with sounding a bit weird. Anyway, it covers incredibly well, looks fantastic, is pretty long lasting with a good top coat & the rather chunky flecks of glitter from the Collection Bedazzled layered on top transform it into a perfect party nail. If you’re into a rich, glossy nails I’d highly recommend you try Rimmel’s Salon Pro range, they really are beautiful colours that transform your fingers into ten dazzling digits… and look every bit as professional as a well manicured gel!
