If there's one thing I lack in my collection, it's satin finishes with shimmer. I have no idea why because every time I wear them, I wonder why I haven't got more. So I picked up a few of these shades in the same collection (not to also mention that all polishes were £1 in the sale!!) This satin finish, caramel beige shade is dotted with micro fine gold dust making it a perfect everyday nude. However, I did feel it clashed with my skin tone a little so I'm not too keen on it. What do you guys think?

Barry M's coconut infusion collection was launched earlier this Spring and I've only just got my hands on these. They claim to give you a glossy gel-like finish and nourish your nails with the coconut water and oil infusion formula. I can't say that I noticed much of a difference in hydrating qualities but their formula is certainly bang on. It goes on silky smooth with a great shine and it's very fast drying. I'd love to try out a few more shades in this collection.

Blue and pink compliment each other so well yet I feel like I very rarely use the two shades together. I really like the way this turned out and the glitter gives it a nice sparkle touch.

This one's a special one for all you pizza lovers. Yesterday was 'London's largest outdoor pizza festival' (MySlice Festival) and it was one interesting event to say the least. It was a great day out in the sun with some good music, food, games, rides, drinks and of course pizza. However, the festival could've been a lot more enjoyable if the pizza stalls were slightly more organised and we didn't have to wait hours queuing up to get a slice! Nevertheless, it was a fun day out with great company and my nails were definitely festival ready.

Happy Monday Blues! The weekend seems to fly by every week and with wedding bookings in full swing, I miss my weekend lie ins :( Nevertheless, it means I get to enjoy more of the day, especially when it's a hot, summers day in London - so I guess I can't complain.

If you're wondering why I haven't had the chance to blog regularly in the past few months, then weddings are the reason. For any of you new followers or readers that have just stumbled across my blog, probably won't know that I'm a professional MUA and hairstylist too. So if you're into that kind of thing, go ahead and follow my instagram account: mili.makeup.

It's a minty kind of weekend today with this gorgeous shade from Kiko. I've decided to carry on rocking all these bright shades for the summer season, because it looks great on my tanned, holiday skin (and it reminds me of the beautiful ocean blue on my travels to Greece!)

For someone who isn't really a glitter fan, I am absolutely obsessed with this 'Bronze' polish by MaxFactor, It's the perfect top coat for any shade if you want to add a little sparkle to your manicure. The pictures don't do it justice but I've tried my best to capture some sparkle for you all to see.
