I remember when I was still the young single me, I used to doll up all the time with my friends in Uni. One dear friend was, and still is, really good at manicures and nail painting and she used to do that for us. The good old days!

I admit that I haven't been looking after myself much since giving birth to Abby. It's so much easier to doll her up than myself!

Today I've received Miners Cosmetics new Spring/ Summer Nail collection. Apparently this S/S the retro pastel colours are the new trend! I love the bold colours but I'm sceptical about putting colours like yellow, orange and teal on my nails. 'Old fashioned' isn't quite the word for it in this situation. So I picked the Fuchsia, or Miners Cosmetics Jezebel to try.

About the product:
  • £2.99 each (9ml)
  • Seasonal shades include 'Sunny Side Up', 'Marshmallow', 'Mango Tango', 'Jezebel', 'Keepin' it Teal'

Excuse my uneven nails
My review:

No kidding! I'm really loving it! The colour is very feminine and I suddenly felt that something has changed inside me!

I noticed that the first coating is quite uneven. It's not really a big problem as you are suppose to put two coatings anyway. But I've tried nail polish from other brands that looked great even with just one coat. It dried up fairly quick and I have no problem touching them after about 7 minutes.

As pastels are the new trend, it's really worth getting your hands on these as they are half the price of some popular brands. For people like me who doesn't use nail polish that often, or for those who likes to change colour frequently, this 9ml £2.99 bottle is perfect.


As the other colours aren't very me, and I hate to waste things, I've decided to give the other four colours away.

If you fancy winning one of Miners Cosmetics new S/ S nail collection, simply tell me which colour is your favourite in the comment below: 'Sunny Side Up', 'Marshmallow', 'Mango Tango' and 'Keepin' it Teal'. Don't forget to leave me a way to contact you if you win.
