Empties: October 2021

Some months I don't use up any polishes, and others like this month I finish a lot. 

W7 - White 34 | I used this up in nail art, need a new good white polish now [swatch].
Beauty Big Bang Stamping Polish 002 | This is clearly black when stamped which is good, I would repurchase this.
Barry M - Countess Textured | Went to use this polish but it has since dried up, don't think you can revive textured polishes the way you can a cream either [swatch].
Stargazer - Purple Chrome | Another one I went to use and it had gone all lumpy, I had however almost used it up [swatch].
La Femme - Grey Cream | Finished this polish, I liked it but have many light grey's so won't be repurchasing [swatch].

Color Club - Mrs Robinson | I went to use this and it has faded so much, I had to replace it with one by Aj Nails [swatch].
Collection - Electric Dreams | Another polish that had faded since 2013, the brand no longer exists [swatch].
Barry M Croc Effect | Both of these no longer work, neither crackle the way they used to [black swatch] [burgundy swatch].

Fruity Orange Shower Gel | Nice enough shower gel, I'd not repurchase it myself though.
B. Hydrated Moisture Mask | I couldn't use this up, it didn't provide any moisture and left a layer of stickiness sitting on the skin without doing anything once removed.
Lush Angels on Bare Skin | This was a sample, it is a bit different to use in that you have to mix it with water in your palm but it seemed to cleanse my face fine. Don't think I would purchase this.
Lush - Lord of Misrule | Used one of these this past month. Patchouli, earthy, spicy. Would keep repurchasing as long as they come out for Halloween, I recently stocked up on more [2021 Review].
Acetone Free Polish Remover | One from Superdrug and other from Boots, I don't think there is much of a difference between the two brands. Both did the job. I'd repurchase either of these.

Magic Crafting Christmas Berries Melt | I couldn't use this up, the scent was too strongly floral.
Yankee Midsummers Night Melt | Had a aftershave scent, it was okay but I'd not repurchase.
Teddy Eva Sage and Sea Salt Melt | Another aftershave scent, I think it's a dupe for Jo Malone Wood Sage and Sea Salt Cologne. It was nice but not one I'd repurchase.



  1. I have that texture, I'll need to check it. My god, I really miss Collection or Collection 2000 - they had some great polishes and loved those wee bottles!

    1. I don't know if using a polish thinner would work on the textured finish?
      That brand was good, it was a shame when it disappeared.
