Glitter & Gloss

Afternoon Lovelies :)

I have had an absolutely wonderful Christmas, I hope you all have too. I also got waaayy more than I was expecting, especially since I have a new camera this year.
I think my parents were enjoying the fact that this was my last 'childhood' Christmas and went a bit crazy on the present buying front aha. I can't say I'm complaining though. Thankyou Mum and Dad!!! :D

It was a very quite, albite lovely Christmas this year as I celebrated with only my Parents. However I was free from Revision for a whole day and got to eat one hell of a lot of food whilst spending time with my family.

Today's blog post is going to be about one of the GORGEOUS presents my Mum gave to me. (I wasn't expecting this one)

The Nails Inc. Glitter & Gloss Minis Collection.

The beautifully packaged box comes with 10 miniature nail polishes from the Glitter & Gloss collection and I can safely say there isn't a single colour I don't like!!

I love how they are all named after places in London too :)
The set includes:
Bloomfield Terrace.
This is a gorgeous, slightly pearlescent red colour.

Egerton Gardens.
A full on pink, purple, red and blue sparkle haven.

Culford Gardens.
A beautiful shimmery Silver/Gold (My Favourite)

Rawlings Street.
A lovely Turquoise with a hint of shimmer

Saville Row.
A deep mahogany red/brown

Bourne Street.
A bright red packed with glitter

Belgrave Place.
A deep cobalt blue

Little Venice
A sheer light, neutral pink.(Currently Wearing)

Bruton Street.
A neutral mauvey brown with a hint of pink

A very deep red/purple

My favourite thing about miniature sets, is you can almost 'try before you buy'. I love to experiment with colours, but it is also great that if I love one of the colours enough, I can splash out and repurchase. Knowing I already love the shade.

This box retails for £50 however my mum told me she snapped it up for £25. Not bad for ten reasonably sized polishes.
Plus the box will be great for storing nail files, cuticle sticks etc when the polishes run out.

If you would like to see a swatch of any let me know. (I attempted to paint each nail a different colour which failed due to my impatience)

Would anyone consider purchasing this gift set?
