Maybelline Colourshow Nail Polish Review

So in all my nail obsession, I had to try out the new nail polish that Maybelline has released. Now the bottle for this polish is small and will fit in the palm of your hand. 

There is a big hype around it because it is  a gel based formula. To be honest I had no idea why this was so special, so I looked it up. A gel base means that the colour is bold and crisp. 
   The colour I put on was called 'Pink Bikini' and to be honest it was gorgeous! Now I'm a girl who loves pink, and this colour is right up my alley. 

Now even though this polish is affordable, there is a downside. Maybelline boasted that it is a chip resistant formula. However this is not the case but even if it did chip they were still small ones. 

Overall, I do love this nail colour and the collection looks promising. I definitely recommend this to all of you guys and my friends.

Roo Beauty Nail Polish Roll Review

So in all my love of nail polish I tend to keep buying more without thinking of the amount of storage I have left. I came to the realisation that I actually needed more storage for my collection other than the metal box I already have.
So I took to scrolling through eBay for some more storage when I found this beauty, a nail polish roll. The more I looked at it the more I fell in love with it. I quickly popped it into my basket and checked out.
When it finally arrived I fell in love all over again. Not only was this going to give me more storage for my Nail Polish collection, but I realised it would also be good when it came to travelling. The packaging for the roll was quiet simple as you can tell from the photo.
Now the roll itself has 12 individual pockets that are double stitched to make sure your nail polish doesn't move or hit the one it sits next to. It is padded which I loved, as it means that all those wonderful nail colours are less likely to be broken if you decide to use this for travel. It is Velcro fastened which means getting the polish out couldn't be more simpler. When the nail polish is all in and you roll and Velcro it up it kind of resembles a circle.
Now the design is done by a company called Roo Salon Limited, on their website these nail polish rolls start from as little as £10 and come in either small or large. The website also has many other nail polish storage ideas as well as make up storage. These rolls come in various designs.  I found mine on eBay for around £6 including postage and package which is such a bargin. They can also be found on amazon.
Now this storage/travel idea is perfect for anyone who needs that little bit of extra room, You could even use it as a season accessory where you just pop in some colours that you like to wear with the current season. It makes a great accessory for travelling so you are not stuck with only one nail colour option while on holiday or visiting friends.
Let me know in the comments if you found this helpful, and I would love to see a picture of your one if you decide to treat yourself to one.
