Nail Polish Battle 2015: Black, Silver + Duochrome

So it is that time of year again where I go through all of the new nail polishes I have acquired over the past year and I choose which polish is the best. I have been doing these annual blog posts since 2012. During the past two months I have accumulated 41 polishes.

Today we are starting with black, silver an duochrome polishes.

OPI - My Silk Tie // Barry M - Super Sonic // Sally Hansen - Black Platinum

I didn't get too many of these polishes this past year. Originally I would have thought the Sally Hansen would have been my favourite, however the formula is really thin and you need 3 or 4 coats.

The Barry M polish has a new flat and wide brush which is great however I found this chipped really easily on me.

So that brings us to the winner, My Silk Tie. More through default, but I do like this polish.

Review: BOHEM - Superstar - Reusable Nail Art*

The Superstar represents fame and flashing lights! The superstar is special and full of hope. Stand out and show off with BOHEM's Superstar!

What is BOHEM Reusable Nail Art?
These are silver nail jewellery, to be used as an accent nail.

What do they claim?
- Unlimited Use 
- Kind to your nails
- Solid 925 Sterling Silver 
- Anti-tarnish protection
- Hallmarked officially by Birmingham Assay Office, UK
- Designed made and hand-finished by qualified artisans in the Jewellery Quarter

This particular design is called 'Superstar' which are silver with a star design on.


The nail accessories come with 12 adhesive tabs, along with a silver polishing cloth. 
Also included is a instruction leaflet and a nail file.



The adhesive tabs, which you can repurchase separately.


Silver polishing cloth which again you can repurchase separately.


These nail accessories come in various designs as well as different lengths, shapes and widths so depending on your own nails you can find something which will fit your nail bed. The sizing chart can be found here.

On to the ones I was sent to review, I chose 20mm length, width medium (12mm) and rounded tips. BOHEM also do free exchanges and returns if you happen to order the wrong size.


The silver polish is OPI's My Silk Tie;


For these nails I used Colors By Llarowe Black Gold, Texas Tea and some round 4mm silver studs;


Although these are made from solid sterling silver they aren't heavy and while you can feel you have something on your nails. The sticky tabs are strong enough to hold them on to the nail securely. They remove by simply pulling them off, don't use nail polish remover as this will tarnish the sterling silver.

I think these are great for special occasions or nights out. Something a bit special and a bit different. There are so many different designs on the BOHEM site that there is something for everybody and of course there are all different sizes for different nail lengths, shapes and widths.
