Dear March: Bring it On.

So I've sort of had the day off today... I say sort of because my home duties were out of control, the day has been full of cleaning, closet organizing, and endless laundry.
[[pauses b/c the next load of laundry is dry, must fold and continue...]]
We have so, so much coming up this next month, holy moly, it's crazy. I'm really thankful to have had today to catch up on household duties. We (meaning the mister and I) should be good on laundry for a bit (hopefully, please-oh-please), my closet is getting so jammed packed after spending some time hanging up tried-on-but-didn't-work items, as well as the 5+ loads of laundry done today. Whew! I need to get rid on of some clothes, but that is a-whole-nother project.
So, like I said, it's going to be a BIG month. First up, First Friday in March! Yah, this coming Friday--crazy. We have a little "6th Street" Meeting tonight where we will be finalizing some music/vendor things (more on that later). Practically right after First Friday, on Sunday March 6th, we have a whimsical, gypsy-themed editorial shoot set up with our friend and beloved photographer, miss Angela Simpson. It's going to be an all-day event 5am-7pm, but boy-oh-boy do we have some fantastic things planned for it! Alrighty, fast forward two weeks from the shoot to March 19th-20th... ART DETOUR!! Again, we are teaming up with our friends on 6th Street to hopefully bring a really fun/memorable weekend (full of shop sales, live music, and local artists) for our friends and fans! (Again, more details about that coming in the next few weeks..)

Wait, there's more. Saturday, March 26th, we are going to be a part of AZ Blogger Meetup!! I recently had the chance to chat with Chelsea about the event, it sounds like it's going to be so, so much fun! There are some really great ladies hosting the event..
**BTW-- Butter Toast donated THREE $10 Gift Certificates for some lucky Meetup winners!!**

Time to get ready for some long days and nights this March...I'm actually really looking forward to it all!! It's going to be a great month to be creative and network with all sorts of new folks!! Can't wait!!

Now, for a few inspirational images for our upcoming shoot..
((mostly sourced from Lovely Bohemia. other sources unknown-sorry))

I hope your week is starting out great! Mine is certainly starting out productive, hooray for good starts!! Toodaloo for now!

Benefit Ooh La La

Thought I'd sport a lip thats not from the barbie pink family for once. I'm not really a fan, but I thought I'd share it with you.
Its Benefits Ooh La La..

Naked Silky Smooth Starflower Body Wash

When I received this in the post I was very intrieged as I haven't used any Naked products before but have heard lots about them.

The intial thing I do when I get a new body product is smell it, I don't like using a product that I don't like the smell of because I really won't enjoy using it at all. Theres no risk of that with this product, its a very soft floral smell and it really reminds me of a hand product that I used to use when I did Beauty Therapy. Its not an overbearing smell and it is a delight to use.

When applying it to the skin, I like to use a body puff as it lathers up a beautiful fluff of product. Its quite a thin consistency which I like, it works into your skin really lightly.

Its called Soft Touch for a reason. Instantly your skin feels very, very soft and freshly cleansed. It contains alot of GLA which is an essential fatty acid which improves the skin's protective barrier and helps to combat the signs of aging.
I really like this product and recommend that you try it out. It retails at £3.99 for a 250ml which is FAB, and is available here.

I really like the whole concept of Naked products, there very natural and it seems to me as if they are a really honest company.
When I was looking at the packaging which is a really quite simple, I noticed "97% Natural" and thought hmm. After a little bit of research into what the further 3% contains I read that:

"The remaining 3% is made up of things like the preservative system (stops the product going bad after opening ) plus things like emulsifying agents which are necessary to stop ingredients from separating ( we don’t like divorce ). However some of our products are actually 99.5% natural as they didn’t need as much help to behave."

I really like the way that you know exactly what you are putting on your skin.

The company seem really willing to tell there customers everything. When looking on there website I read there Values and something that I really liked was there down to earth approach honesty.

"The appearance of these bottles is slightly flawed – they have a greenish/brown tinge and the odd black fleck and may look poor quality. The truth is quite contrary as recycled materials are a more expensive option and great time and care is taken in sourcing them. We haven’t passed on the cost to you though, as Naked has never increased its retail price since launch in 2005.

We do believe that, with beauty, it’s what’s inside that counts and our fabulous lotions and potions look and smell as good, if not better, than they ever did."
This explains the simple packaging that I touched on.

I know that I certainly will be purchasing more from this company because I really feel as if I can trust them.

-They literally seem to have removed all the bad things from products and put in place good things.
-They only use ingredients from sustainable sources.
-They "don’t believe in testing on Bambi, Lassie, Skippy or any other animal – not any of our ingredients"
-Although some of there products use animal-by products (milk, honey and beeswax etc) these products state that they are not suitable for vegans.
-They are suitable for Vegetarians.

"We are 97% natural, but 100% transparent. We're honest about everything we do- no covering up here"

I really urge you to have a little look on there website ( its really interesting and they have a fabulous range of products.

Body Shop Satsuma Shower Goodies

I have been using these for a while now and I'm in love.
I'm very much a Citrus girl and always have been. I really love anything Orange or Lemon so when I started using these beautiful little wonders I couldn't have been happier.

The Body Shop Satsuma Shower Gel 250ml £4.00
This is the most beautiful, sweet, mouth watering, zesty shower gel I have ever used. Its true Satsuma and is just wonderful. The smell is very natural, coming from the Satsuma Peels natural oils.
A little really goes a very long way, its very soft on the skin and leaves your skin feeling very clean.
Its soap-free which is very friendly to your skin and is full of moiturising ingredients including Community Trade organic soya oil from Brazil that "helps to repair the skin's moisture barrier, thus helping to restore moisture, smoothness and suppleness".
For £4 you really can't go wrong and is definitely worth trying.
One thing I don't like about it is that its got a few different Oils in it and I usually like to Fake Tan after a shower in the evening so when I use a product packed with oil's, I can't. Boo!

The Body Shop Satsuma Body Polish 200ml £9.00
This is something that makes me very happy. As mentioned above and throughout my whole blog, I love to tan and an essential part of my tanning routine is exfoliation. Most exfoliators that I have used are marketed as a weekly exfoliator or advised that you only use 1-2 times a week because they can be really harsh to your skin but this beauty is a "Gentle daily exfoliation and cleansing" polish.
At £9.00 for 200ml it could be seen as a little pricy for a shower product but its worth every single penny.
"A gel-based, foaming polish loaded with exfoliating crushed walnut shells and loofah particles, the sensational Satsuma body polish leaves the skin soft, supple and delicately scented."
It really smells so mouth wateringly gorgeous, provided by the goodies that its packed with; Orange Essential Oil, Satsuma Juice that gives the colour aswell and Community Traded organic honey.
After rubbing it into your skin, you really feel as if your skin is deeply clean and refreshed. It leaves your skin feeling so soft and if you are a tanner- the perfect base. I would however, suggest that you don't tan immediately after.
This product really does deserve a place in everyones shower.

The Shower Gel is also available in 60ml for £2
The Body Polish is also available in 75ml for £5

The Satsuma line also offers Lipbalm, Home Fragrance Oil, Body Butter, Body Lotion and Soap.

All available online and in store.


Crest 3D White Toothpaste

A bit of a random post but a few months ago when I was in Canada, I needed to buy a Toothpaste so I picked up a couple of Crest 3D White ones.
Living in the UK I hadn't really heard of it but it was advertised everywhere there so I decided to get this one.
I only ever use Whitening toothpaste,- usually Macleans Whitening. I'm a little bit obsessed with teeth- I think a nice smile is very important.

Amazon product description says:

Whitens teeth by removing up to 90% of stains in just 14 days for a noticeably whiter smile. Crest 3D White Advanced Vivid brings whitening toothpaste to a whole new level. Not only does it feature micro-cleansing whiteners that coat your teeth to loosen surface stains and gently polish them away, it also acts as a whitening protector to help prevent new ones. Add Crest 3D White Advanced Vivid to your oral care routine for: * Up to 90% reduction of surface stains and a noticeably whiter smile in 14 days * Protection against new surface stains.

This toothpaste is AMAZING! It really is quite wonderful. I'm not sure about 14 days because I didn't really follow it, but it definately gets them whiter and keeps them whiter. It really makes your teeth sparklely and white.

Unfortunately, mine has all finished now but I found it on Amazon (Click here) for £6.35 which is fantastic, so I'm going to buy a couple more.
I purchased them in Canada on promotion in Shoppers Drug Mart (LOVE THAT SHOP) but I'm sure they was about $7.
I really recommend this product.

I got this image also from Amazon, because mine is all squeezed and swashed up now :(

And The Winner Is...

First prize: Nicola of Woodbank Crafts
Second Prize: Linda of TabbyRoo
Third Prize:: Alice of An Alien World

Welldone ladies! I'm afraid I may not be able to post out until friday but will do my best to get them off to you before then xxx

Blighty Boutique's 1st Birthday Giveaway

Yesterday was my blog’s first birthday and I had said on my previous post that I’d be doing a giveaway. Well here it is, a day late as my mum and I had a charity shopping day yesterday and I was all out of energy after our many purchases. Most of the goodies I bought yesterday are headed for my stall at The Northampton Vintage Fair on March 19th and I’ll post some pics of my haul in the next few days.

So, back to the giveaway. I’ve decided to make this giveaway different to the usual format for giveaways. No need to advertise my giveaway on your blog or to comment on this post. I’ve decided that since I’ve already got lots of lovely and loyal followers to enter into my giveaway, there’s no need to use a ‘I’m having a giveaway’ button to pull in lots more bloggers. Not that I don’t love to have new followers you understand, it’s just that I’d like them to follow me because they like my blog, not just because I’m having a giveaway.

So here’s the loot…

I decided to put a parcel together on the topic of things that I like;

1. I love vintage Ladybird books and am forever writing lists = A Ladybird Book of Things To Make notebook.
2. I love cakes and afternoon tea = a retro styled oven glove covered in cake stands, cakes and yummy ice-cream scoops.

3) I love vintage annuals and transforming them into envelopes so that the illustrations aren’t just sat on a shelf but are in everyday use = A mixed set of 5 of my handmade envelopes made from vintage annuals and maps.

4) I love pampering myself and particularly love Soap and Glory = Soap and Glory handbag sized hand cream.

5) I love crafting and although I’m not great at it, I like doing basic embroidery = A Sublime Stiching Craftopia embroidery transfer. These are so easy to use and the embroidery illustrations are always super cool.

To be entered into the giveaway you don’t need to do anything at all. Just sit back and eat chocolate whilst watching Take Me Out or Casualty, or whatever takes your fancy, and I’ll throw all of my current followers into a hat and draw them in the morning. I’ll then contact the winner.

Since I now have lost of lovely followers (I’d never have thought so many people would be interested in my babblings) I’ll also be drawing second and third giveaway winners who will receive this book full of beautiful pictures and interesting facts from the War years (2nd place)

and this Rose and Co. Apothecary mini mirror and Milk and Roses bath soak (3rd place).


John Frieda Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight & Overnight Repair Transform Creme Serum

John Frieda Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight & Overnight Repair Transform Creme Serum.

These two new products are absolutely AMAZING! I have always been a fan of John Frieda products- normally the volume range but these are literally just fab.

John Frieda Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight 100ml £6.99
"Transform curly, frizzy hair into a straight, smooth style that lasts upto 3 days."

3 day straight is marketed as a Semi-Permanent styling spray. Its full of Keratin Protein which when is heat activated with Hair Straighteners, wraps each strand to seal long-lasting straightness without making weighing it down.
You apply this to wet or damp hair and use 7-15 sprays depending on the length, curl and thickness of your hair. Brush or comb it through to ensure that it has been distributed evenly and blow dry.
Once your hair has been blow dried, you may feel like I did at first- "eek, this feels like a disgusting product build up" but I assure you, once you set your hair straighteners on your locks that feeling will disapear and what you will feel is extremely straight, soft, silky smooth hair.
It really leaves your hair feeling so soft and light, as if you've had a conditioning treatment. Just like that initial feeling after you have had your hair done professionally.
My mum used this at the same time as me and was so pleased with the results aswell. Its genius!
Thats just the initial feeling.

I don't buy products expecting them not to work, but its quite frequent that I buy a product and think "yeah ok..." but really, this works. My hair is left completely straight for days at a time. By 3 days, I wash anyway but inbetween I really don't find the need to straighten which is just fantastic.
If anything, I feel like I need to boof my hair up a little bit because it literally makes my hair completely straight- but that is not something I am going to complain about.

3 day straight states that is safe for colour treated and chemically treated hair aswell!
To see the results of 3 Day Straight 2 days on, I have recently added a post of photos click here.

John Frieda Overnight Repair Transform Creme Serum 50ml £7.39
"Mends dry, damaged, frizzy hair for a smooth silky-soft texture. Leaves no residue on the pillow"

I have never seen therefore never used an overnight repair serum on my hair so I was very excited to try this out.
Its packed with Chamomile extract and "Damage mending technology" that mends each strand of your hair to a deep luxurious level whilst you sleep. It "visibly repairs breakage and split ends and deeply nourishes to add back much needed moisture".

You simply use about a 10p size of serum (depending on length and thickness of your hair) into your palms and distribute into your DRY locks, concentrating on the ends of your damaged ends and leave overnight. Then you go to sleep, wake up, wash and style your hair as normal.

When you have dried your hair the following morning your hair feels so soft and in a much better condition. My hair is in mega need of a cut, but my ends feel so much better and alot more sealed.
I've used so many treatments on my hair, and this one genuinely feels as if your hair has had miracles worked on it.
I'm so, so pleased with this product.

As for the pillow test, that is an absolute winner too! No residue on my pillow- yay! I was a little concerned it would leave my pillow feeling a little greasy, but it kind of just dries into your hair.

I picked up these two products in Boots, whilst they was on a 2 for £7.50 offer which they regularly run which I think is excellent but I think that at the moment, they have 3 for 2 on all professional haircare so I really would reccomend that you pick these two little wonders up.

I made a Treasury, and it was fun.

We've been so, so fortunate to be featured in endless Etsy Treasuries over the last couple years (see via facebook or twitter how often), and I had always been interested in making one of my own, but for some reason postponed in actually taking the time to create one. Kat had a lovely little post the other day, and it reminded me that I still wanted to do one. 
So I did.

Mmmm Toasty!

Happy, happy Friday to you!

Longing for Spring.

As I'm sure you are all well aware...Spring is just around the corner!! Some days already feel like Spring in Phoenix, but weather is about to take a rainy turn this weekend, and that fact is making me long for Spring even more. If you read my "7 Facts" post, you found out that my very favorite smell ever is the fresh scent of orange blossoms in the Spring. It makes me melt. I've had this image on our shop computer for some time and I stumbled upon it today... it just took me into full on daydream mode. I want to be here, with my honey and some friends, enjoying some drinks, eats, and a beautiful afternoon, while breathing that sweet, sweet smell of orange blossoms. It would be complete and utter BLISS!

Source, unknown.

I hope this day is treating you well.
Ta ta for now.

Honey, I'm Home

I'm back to my bloggy home! Thank you so much for all your lovely comments! I am feeling much better now and it was interesting to hear how many people experience Chronic Fatigue and similar conditions. I wish you all well and am looking forward to catching up with everybody’s blogs over the next week or so.

I had thought that it was my blog’s first birthday sometime last month, but on checking I have found that it is in fact tomorrow. Just in time for me to start blogging again after a little blog ‘holiday’.

On the Saturday just gone my friend and I had our very belated birthday get together. We put it off until February as Faye (my joint birthday girl) and a friend of ours are both teachers and couldn’t face a big night out during term time, so we waited for the holidays. It was a good job as we all reverted to uni days and got way too drunk. We used to be able to handle wine by the litre and cans of Strongbow, but these days we really can’t stand the pace and the only two of us to move before 5pm the next day were my cousin and work mate (both younger than the other 6 of us I might add). The rest of us spent the day lying in ‘nests’ downstairs watching cookery programs because nobody could be bothered to move to find the remote control, eating Dominoes pizza ordered at 11am and asking anybody who managed to get up to go the loo to bring us more water/tea/orange juice.

Me, my cousin Katie & my friend Katie
 After turning into something from Booze Britain the night before and pushing the taxi driver to the limits of ‘I usually have a swear box but I’ve lost count with you guys’ we all agreed we’d never drink again…until the next time.
Katie, Me & Orla

Katie, Jessy, Me & Faye. Nobody could be bothered with inflating the air beds
Here are some of the lovely pressies I received on my ‘un-birthday’ as my friend calls it.

I’ve had sooo many goodies to open during January and February, and not just birthday and un-birthday presents. The lovely Jo from Hest & the Pugs sent me this gorgeous 1930s Scottie pin. He’s absolutely adorable and now sits on a cake stand in my living room so I can see him every day. Thanks Jo, and I can’t wait to see you again at the next Northampton Vintage Fair!

Now a big apology to Elaine for taking so damn long to blog about my amazing Spread the Bloggy Love parcel. The parcel itself was beautifully wrapped and my goodies contained a Thornton’s chocolate ginger bar, but obviously it’s not in the pics because it didn’t hang around for long. The chocolate was absolutely delicious and it was lovely to receive as part of a swap because it wasn’t something I would have thought I would have liked, but absolutely loved! So thanks for introducing me to a new delish chocolate Elaine.

In my parcel was a beautiful and lovingly made hanging heart; I love the blanket stitch and polka dot ribbon, a lovely vintage style half apron which I wore while playing hostess on Saturday night, a cute red photo frame and the most amazing tea cosy that no sits on top of my fridge giving my much too modern kitchen a vintage feel. Thanks again Elaine!

And, with it being my blog’s 1st birthday tomorrow I will be doing a giveaway for all my lovely followers! See you tomorrow xxx

Picture from

Keep Calm.

I had somewhat of a trying day today. An awful headache from yesterday lingered on, and I had to hold my tongue a few times. So, I decided to search for some cute toast stuff to lift my mood....and look what I found!! Instant smile. 

Tomorrow is a new day.

Mavala Spring/Summer Carrousel Collection

I was very kindly sent 3 Mavala Nail Varnishes from the new Spring/Summer Collection to try.
I've never tried any other Mavala products so I was very excited to sweep these colours over my nails.

They colours I got were
-Blush Pink
-Smoky Blue
-Lame Gold

In comparison to other brands, these bottles are really quite small. I really like that about them because I find I never get through a bottle of nail varnish and there really convenient to keep in your makeup bag.

Blush Pink
This shade is a really pretty pale romantic Pink. Its very soft and has a slight shimmer to it leaving the colour with a really nice finish.
It's quite a thin consistency even when shaken so I needed to apply 3 coats because I have false nails with tips on them which were showing through too much.
It is quite a transparent colour but could be built up if you wanted to have a more opaque finish.
I do however think sometimes a more transparent nail colour can be pretty, it looks a little more natural and often more flattering.

Lame Gold
This isn't really a shade that I would normally pick out of a collection but I am really glad I have tried it because I really like it.
Its very much a light gold, with a shimmer running through it to make it shine and ever so slightly sparkle.
It's a really natural looking shade, which isn't too obvious to the eye.
My mum doesn't really wear anything on her nails but she applied this aswell and is absolutely loving it.
Like the Blush Pink, its also quite a tranparent colour that could be built up but I think that it really works well for it. If your wanting more of a natural looking gold, then this would definately be perfect colour for you.
I think in the summer when I'm wearing gold little sandals this will be such a flattering colour.

Smoky Blue

I really love this colour. In real life, it is a little darker. I tried to photograph the "true" colour but it wasn't working very well at all. It's a little deeper and slightly more Navy?
It applies really well and I only needed two coats to get the perfect finish.
It stays really shiny for such a long time aswell which is lovely. I hate when a nail varnish starts to look a little dull.
Unlike the Blush Pink and Lame Gold, this is a very opaque colour. I'm not sure whether thats just because its darker but it really is a lovely colour and finish.

All of these colours dried pretty fast. I applied the second coats before the first coats had completely dried and they still dried really quickly and smooth. I'm currently wearing the Smoky Blue and it feels so smooth to the touch.

The smell of the varnishes is quite strong when applying. This isn't something that particulary bothers me, but my mum did comment on it so I thought I had better add in it. There is no smell when the product has dried.

The full range of the Carrousel Collection is;

Blush Pink, Lame Gold, Bronze Green, Rococo Red, Darling Pink and Smoky Blue

They retail at £4.10 which I think is a fantastic price and you can pick up these beauts from John Lewis, D

These beauts retail at £4.10 each which I think is a fantastic price and are available to buy at John Lewis, Debenhams and Salons nationwide 01732 459412.

I really want to try the Bronze Green! It looks amazing.


Butter Toast on the Big Screen.

Hey there! I have some great/surreal news!
It was recently brought to our attention, that a vintage suit purchase from our old shop [[Billie Goat Vintage]] is worn by Dakota Johnson in a new (not yet released) independent motion picture entitled, "Theo". The news was sooo exciting!! I'm still kind of in shock.

This is an image of the suit purchased from our BGV Etsy shop:

And....dun da da dun!

The trailer for Theo: (The suit is shown at 1:07, 2:27-2:28, 2:52-2:53. Yes I realize that's only 5 seconds of glory. But how cool!!)

I can't wait until it comes out, it looks pretty funny! Unfortunately, I'm having a hard time finding out more information about it,  I think because it may still be in production, or post editing, or what have you. I'm going to keep an eye on it, and share later!

Anywho, that's my awesome news for the day. I hope your Monday is treating you well!

New Look Real People Campaign

New Look to me just keeps on getting better and better.
I've mentioned it a few times recently and felt for a couple of reasons it deserved its own post.

I really feel that it has quickly gone from a High Street store that I used to shop in throughout my teenage years and would have only shopped in occasionally to somewhere I visit alot.

I know that they have always sold fantastic shoes at amazing prices and so maybe I was just oblivious to the fashion before but there clothing has to me, become amazing.
There so quick with trends and I have found myself looking in there for dupes of higher end fashions and on trend fashions more and more.
There accessories are also especially fantastic. I'm loving there wired headbands and bikinis at the moment. I can't wait until the full range hit stores for Summer.
There prices are so reasonable and on top of that they run some really fantastic offers.

I know I'm not alone here as I'm seeing so much more of New Look posted throughout so many blogs.

We all know that I'm a sucker for Topshop but I really think New Look are upping there game!
I recently picked up a few Blouses, Peter Pan Collar pieces and Oversized tees, that I know Topshop and other more expensive High Street stores have such similar items to that cost alot more.

I do however find that I find more beauts on there website (click here) than I do instore, but that might just be because my local store is quite small.

Whilst browsing there Facebook page I came across there new campaign. Similar to what some companies have already done but fantastic nevertheless.

Its there Real People campaign. There using "Real People" as apposed to Models for there Mens, Womens, Inspire, Tall, Maternity, Kids and Teen ranges.
I think this is so refreshing.

It will be so refreshing to go into a store and see "real people" advertising the clothes- there customers modelling there ranges.

I know for New Look this is very exciting and unique but I do wish that more stores would work more campaigns like this.

Theres more information about this on there Facebook Page and here on there YouTube channel.

Happy shopping!

Spring is (almost) Here!

Happy Sunday, lovelies! Here at Meadow we just changed our window display from this:

Hope you all have had a wonderful weekend so far!

Gosh in Chocoholic

Models Own Nail Polishes. Pink Sorbet, Lemon Meringue, Beth's Blue

I recently received these delightful Models Own Nail Polishes and couldn't be any happier with them.
It's very fitting as recently I have been purchasing quite a few different shades and am really enjoying brightening up my outfit with a pretty nail.

From left to right
Pink Sorbet
Lemon Meringue
Beth's Blue

Pink Sorbet
This Pink definately falls into the OMG, daring, barbie, almost neon bright Pink category.
It is a gorgeous colour and would be any Pink lovers dream.
It has quite a purpley/blue shimmer undertone and applies to the nail really well.
It dries less than a minute which is very handy.
I personally think to get the best out of the colour 2 or 3 coats would be best.

This is available for £5 in the Pink section here on the Models Own website.
Lemon Meringue

Mmm a delicious pastel. This is such a beautiful, creamy, pastel yellow. Its a very soft yellow and extremely dreamy.
When it comes to colours, I love pastels, so I'm currently in my element.
Lemon is everywhere at the moment especially in Topshop so this is the pefect colour to pick up for Spring/Summer.
It applies to the nail so smoothly and dries in less than a minute. Its beautiful and creamy with two coats.

This is available for £5 in the Pastel section here on the Models Own website.

Beth's Blue

This is another one of them beautiful summery pastel colours.

It is a light creamy blue- though it is very much borderline Lilac.


This is my favourite of all three.

It dries in less than a minute and you are left with what I can only describe as an opaque, velvety, pastel bluely/lilac, creamy dream.

I can't wait to wear this in the Summer with a little summer dress.

This is available for £5 in the Blue section here on the Models Own website.

The consistency of all these nail polishes is perfect but I would suggest like the bottle says that you do shake well before use. This makes application alot easier and the final results even more beautiful.
The finish of all the colours are lovely and smooth and they also seem very chip-resistant. Mega plus!

Theres often special offers running on the Models Own website so its definately worth a peek!
