I realise nail polish reviews have been somewhat sparse on Just Nice Things and it’s because of two good reasons: the first was a major chop of the talons following a few splits and breakages, and the second was wearing a gel manicure for almost three weeks.

I apologise for the big hold-up but hopefully I can make up for the absence with not one but four different colours courtesy of my favourites MeMeMe, who have launched four new opulent shades for autumn and winter, which I was kindly sent to try.

These metallic polishes are on point with the current baroque and gothic luxe trends and are rich in formula but at affordable prices.

Inspiring, is an emerald green metallic. I have a weakness for green so this one jumped out at me straight away. (Click on the images to blow-up them up for a closer look.)

Seductive, as its name rightfully lives up to, is your classic wine colour.

The olive green Rebellious is another hot favourite of mine. I absolutely love this kind of shade too. You can see golden specks as it catches the light.

Finally Dignified is a frosty pink/lilac that looks much better out of the bottle.

The maxi brush ensures fool-proof application is neat, easy and quick but also keeps the polish looking rich without it dragging.

The formulas are very thick and opaque in one coat though Inspiring was slightly thin in comparison and needed two coats for full coverage. I didn’t paint a top coat as I prefer the finishing of the metallic polishes as they are. Overall I am impressed with how easy they are to apply and how superb they look. And they only cost £4.50 each.

Have you tried these polishes or any other shades by MeMeMe? If so, what do you think of them?

MeMeMe Lippies

Ooh it’s been a while since I posted about pretty make-up. Well we can’t be neglecting that side of things on Just Nice Things so to remedy that, take a look at these lipsticks from high street favourites MeMeMe.

These satin lip cream lippies are enriched with Shea Butter and Vitamin E and lightly scented. There are 10 colours to choose from of which I have been testing three shades: Hot Magenta, Berry Crush and Tuscan Red (from left to right on the top picture and the swatches below).

First up is Hot Magenta, an eye-popping neon pink and quite a statement colour. I love the shade but it was very buttery and sheer. You’ve heard of lipsticks dry fast, well this is the opposite – messy in application and far from long-lasting. Disappointing.

Berry Crush is a bluey-purple frost which applied beautifully and is my favourite out of the three. Unlike Hot Magenta this one definitely has a satin finish, is pretty pigmented and stays put on the lips. I’ve received a few compliments when I’ve worn this.

Finally Tuscan Red, a reddy-coral frost. Similar to Berry Crush in consistency and appearance, it’s a bold colour but one I’m fond of.

I am a fan of MeMeMe though I’ve only sampled a few of their products. Their lipsticks are a first for me and I have to say I’m on the fence about them. Amazing colours but a bit of a let-down when you realise how much they retail for and how top notch their Seventh Heaven Enriched Facebase primer and Goddess Rocks are. I have bought a few of their lip glosses which I would recommend you try instead.

MeMeMe’s Long wear Satin Lip Cream lipsticks cost £8.50 and are available in Superdrug stores, Superdrug online and directly from MeMeMe where currently they are on special offer for £6.50.
