After seeing pictures of this beauty posted on my favourite nail group I knew I had to have it but I didn’t think I would be able to get my hands on this beauty as I believe it’s been discontinued. I decided I wouldn’t bother searching too hard for it as if it is meant to be… it will turn up. Well… it did, the next day, in nail sale for just £2. I have since spotted a couple of bottles of this on ebay – so it is out there should you wish to scoop up one to call your very own.
Nails Inc Belgrave Mews is a dark olive green with a warm gold almost bronze shimmer which really glows when it catches the light. I am not a massive green addict but just thought this colour was just too perfect for autumn to pass up. Trying to snap pictures of this beauty was good fun as a tree was flailing wildly out side of my window and the camera phone was having a minor freak out trying to keep up with the changing light balance. I think it worked out well though as I could create the small collage of pictures to show you how this polish transforms in different light conditions.
Application was very smooth and easy – Nails Inc brushes are not as great as OPI Pro-Wide brushes but they’re not too bad to work with and the formula of the polish was flawless. Clean up was quick and easy and this polish did not stain at all (I actually went without base coat as my old one has kicked the bucket – bad nailista!).
In the post this week I received two bars of single origin chocolate (dark and milk) from the Tesco Finest range to try out for BzzAgent*. I am a girl who likes her chocolate but I have never before explored the world of specialist chocolate. There are lots of details about the chocolate’s origin, tastes, and smells both on and inside the packaging – including how to identify a good chocolate (listen for the ‘snap’) and also how to properly taste chocolate.
My sister and I have both tried the milk chocolate and I can safely report this is the best milk chocolate either of us have had and we both agreed with the flavour notes (especially the one where this starts with a slight edge of honey). This chocolate bar is now completely demolished and I would definitely love to get some again. I really like the packaging too – it’s modern and trendy with it’s tribal inspired art… I might try and recreate it on my nails at some point. I haven’t had chance to properly test the dark chocolate yet but look forward to reporting back. My foodie friend tells me that Tesco’s have recently added a lot of new products to their finest range (including cheeses, desserts and ready meals) – I must be honest and say that due to convenience I don’t shop in Tesco’s often, but next time I do… I am definitely investigating!
My camera should return from it’s holiday this week so hopefully I can get back to posting more often! I hope you’re all well and having a good Monday! Do you have any lemmings? What’s the best chocolate you’ve ever had? Let me know with a comment below!
