I've recently added to my nail collection (again!) and wanted to share some of my recent finds with you - there are some absolute treasures here! Usually, as soon as Autumn comes around, I tend to wear dark polishes, like grays, blacks and dark reds, but this year I wanted to include some brighter shades.
Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy in Up The Ante
This is one of my favourite purchases of the last few months! I have been wearing this a ton ever since I got it! I love the colour, it's a gorgeous pinky purple. The formula is fantastic - I don't own any other polishes from this range but I am extremely impressed with this one. It goes on perfectly opaque in two thin coats, has a very nice gel finish and stays chip-free for a long time. I can wear this for up to 6 days, which is a miracle for me as my polish usually chips after 1-2 days.
Revlon Colorstay Gel Envy in Up The Ante €10.99, available in Boots.
Chanel Le Vernis Nail Colour in Sweet Star (limited edition)
I got this for my birthday and I am in love with it! It's a very interesting shade and definitely something I don't have in my collection. It's hard to say what colour it actually is, it all depends on the lighting: it goes from a steely metallic gray to green / purple petrol shade. Chanel polishes tend to not be the best when it comes to longevity but they surely make up for that in the shade department. I am not sure if they have changed the formula of this particular shade or whether it is my little new nail device I have been using (keep reading for more details) but this polish definitely performs better than some of the other ones I have from the brand.

Emjoi Micro Nail Electric Nail Polisher
This is, to my surprise, one of my favourite new beauty accessories in a long time! I was quite dubious when this first came across my desk but I am now ready to eat my words! The Micro Nail is basically an electric nail buffer that comes with two attachments, one to buff and the other one to shine your nails. Using this has made a drastic difference not only to the way my bare nails look (lovely & smooth!) but it also makes my nail polish stay on WAY longer! It takes literally 2 minutes to use and the effects are much better than I had after furiously buffing my nails for 20 minutes with a traditional nail buffer. Huge thumbs up from me!
Emjoi Micro Nail Electric Nail Polisher* €49.99 from Boots (replacement roller pads €14.95)
