Darkest Shadow* is from Orly’s Smoky collection. There are six shades in total, with bold saturated colours inspired by the shades of the smokiest eyes coupled with dusty tones. Darkest Shadow wins hands down without a doubt. It’s an oil slicked black with a burgundy shimmer that sometimes looks orange, brown or ruby red as the light catches it.
A rubber based lid makes it easy to grip and apply the polish neatly and of course, Orly is nail lacquer friendly with being free of DPB, Toluene and Formaldehyde. With speckles of glitter, it’s also surprisingly easy to remove as normally glitter-based polishes are a nuisance.
Darkest Shadow costs £10.50 and is available from www.graftonsbeauty.co.uk.
Autumn is definitely my season. It welcomes the excuse to wear ruby, mauve and khaki green, coordinating beautifully with the ever-changing colours of fallen leaves. I will defy trends, however and wear dark shades on my nails all year round. They suit me better. And this bejewelled beauty from Zoya’s Entice & Ignite AW14 range is right up my street.
This is India*, a rich ruby with a gold liquid metallic shimmer that wows admirers as it catches the sunlight. It was a joy to apply – superbly easy and with a neat finish and smooth coats. There are six liquid metal shades within this collection – I really need Teigen (a cranberry pink) and Remy (turquoise) next.
Zoya polishes are one of my favourite nail polish brands. They are free of the five chemical demons (Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor) that damage nails and are vegan, ego and veggie friendly, and they are not tested on animals. With over 500 colours in their range – what’s there not to like?
Zoya polishes are £10.50 each and are available online at www.nailcareclub.com.
