Hi everybody, it has been a while since I did a blog post and any pictures of nails. It has been a busy few weeks with kids being ill and mum being away in India, so my time is spent rushing around to do the school run in between taking meetings lol. The joys of being a full time working mum 🙂
Ok so today I am back with a new to me brand called The Edge nails. They have a variety of nail supplies on their site and I was pleased to be sent some of their polishes and their chrome powder, I have not used the chrome powder but will soon.
First up is ‘Shadow Grey’.
This is such a gorgeous grey creme polish, which was perfect in 2 coats. This swatch is without top coat so you can see just how shiny the polish is. This grey is a great alternative to nude nails and I think it would make a great base for nail art.
Next up is Mint Dream.
Absolutely in love with the creme that is Mint Dream, that rhymes lol :). This polish is superb it applies well and is a gorgeous mint shade. My camera had a hard time picking up this colour, and it is slighter deeper toned to look at in person, but it is just gorgeous. It applied perfectly in 2 coats and again this is with no top coat.
Last but not least is Bella Ballerina.
As you can see this is a sheer pink french mani colour. I love it and it applied perfectly in 2 coats. Believe it or not before starting nail art the only thing I ever did on my nails was french manicures, so this shade gave me a bit of nostalgia. It is the perfect base for a glitter gradient 🙂 And guess what I did as nail art with this polish….yep a glitter gradient lol
All the three polishes applied well the lid of the polishes comes off like the Dior polishes and I quite like that. The brush is fantastic and really helped to apply the polish perfectly. Overall I was extremely impressed with the polishes.
I created two nail art designs using these polishes as you can see below.
I love the dry brush method, such an easy way to create abstract nail art. I used ‘Mint Dream’ and ‘Shadow Grey’ along with picture polish ‘Bright White’. I had this mani on my nails for ages and I can say the staying power of this polish is fantastic and it lasted a whole week with no chips!!!
Its been a while 🙂 Those of you who have been following me for a while will know I love glitter gradients and used to have a bit of a reputation for being a self confessed glitter gradient addict ha ha. I used ‘Bella Ballerina’ along with the gorgeous glitter polish from China Glaze called ‘Moonlight the Night’. Gahhhhhh I love glitter, p.s. this glitter polish is only £2.95 atm from Nail Polish Direct.
I really like the Annika Nail Colour from The Edge nails and I will also be reviewing their chrome powder in the near future. Polishes can be purchased directly from The Edge Nails Website and is priced at £4.20 each, which is a bargain.
