Marble Nail Wraps, Marble Nail Art, Marble Nails

What do you think about when you hear the phrase “nail wraps”? The first thing that comes to my mind are those cheap paper wraps that stay on your nails for less time than it took to put them on. Did anyone ever try the Myleene Klass ones? I’m happy to say though, I’ve found some nail wraps that actually last and they’re marble print too! They come from a small brand called Dinki Belle, who sell a range of different wraps, all non-toxic and free from formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate, toluene, camphor and formaldehyde resin.

My New Obsession- Rings

It was so difficult not to call this post “A Few Of My Favourite Rings”, but I just about managed to resist it! Recently I’ve become obsessed with rings. I’ve bought them in the past but only when they were in the sale and I’d wear them once, leave them somewhere and forget about them. However, I’ve started to buy slightly “nicer” rings, ones that won’t turn my fingers green after wearing them for an hour. All the rings I’m wearing are sterling silver and I think they’re worth the higher price.  View Full Post

Essie Gel Setter Nail Varnish Review with Meet Me At Sunset

I, like many bloggers, have a mild Essie obsession. The colours are all so pretty and the quality is good as well! Last week I was having a browse in Boots (as I do most weeks) and I saw that they had an offer on- buy the Gel Setter nail varnish + any colour for £15. Bought without the deal the nail varnishes would have cost £17.99, so the chance to save a couple of pounds was enough to convince me. The next challenge was to choose a colour, not an easy task at all! Eventually, after I had been staring at the polishes for a little too long, I went for the shade “Meet Me At Sunset”.  View Full Post

Perfect Pastel Polishes For Spring and SummerToday I am happy to share with you the first ever guest post on Rated in Beauty! It is written by the lovely Sophie from Books and Beauty and features her perfect pastel polishes for Spring and Summer. I hope you enjoy it and go check out her blog!

During the spring and summer months, you can go one of either two ways for your nail polish: bright or pastel. I think most people go for bright spring and summer nail polishes. However, if you like your nails to be a little toned down and a cute pastel colour, like myself, I have put together some of my favourite pastel polishes perfect for both spring and summer.

barry m daylight curing nail varnish review

Recently Barry M launched a new range of Nail Varnishes- The Sunset Daylight Curing Nail Paints. They claim to give the look of salon gel nails but without the need for a UV lamp. I really liked the sound of this (and I thought the idea was  interesting) so I picked up a couple in Superdrug. The colours I chose were a blue shade called “The Way You Make Me Teal” and a nude called “Do It Like A Nude” (anyone else have Jessie J in their head?). View Full Post
