Soigné Botanique - Pistache

Pale grey/green creme  

Soigné Botanique is a new brand to me, this one came in a monthly beauty box.

The name means elegant & well groomed and the polish is made in France, which seems appropriate!

Pistache is a Grey/Sage Green creme.

I really like this colour, I'm a big fan of grey and the green tinge lifts it.

Pistache is part of the Macaroon collection and all the shade names in the range are French.

Soigné RRP is £11, bottle size is 10ml, which is the same as Nails Inc but somehow seems smaller!  Although they have a great sale on at the moment with loads of polishes at £4.95.

SuperDry - Scrambler Green

Pale green creme  

Another SuperDry from TK Maxx which only cost me £3

Scrambler Green is a light green creme, maybe a little pistachio leaning.

Application was good, swatches are 2 coats which was just about enough...

No idea what the name means, to me a scrambler is a motorbike, maybe it's different in the world of SuperDry...

Butter London - Brick Lane

Burnt orange shimmer

Sorry for the lack of post readers, I've been away on holiday - two weeks in Iceland which was brilliant, such amazing landscapes and natural beauty and masses of fun activities!

Anyhow back to the swatches...

Hmmm, bottle shot is kinda soft focus!

Brick Lane is a gorgeous rich burnt orange shimmer.  The shimmer is golden and complements the orange nicely.

Swatches shown are two coats, no top coat.

Brick Lane is also the name of the six piece mini collection - my first BL mini's and they're good, same format bottle just a little smaller and brush was still very workable.
