Tried & Tested

I have always been interested in health and beauty, hence why I have written BODY BACK.

For years I have kept notes and comments on products I have liked, found worked (and still use) or have been a total waste of time and money! I am continually searching for medical and alternative health cures, nutritious secrets, clothes that compliment the figure, and of course the anti-aging miracle.

Welcome to TRIED & TESTED


Mavala Extra Mild Nail Polish Remover (1/5)

So mild it didn’t really take off the nail polish effectively without really soaking the cotton wool and pushing quite hard on the nail.


Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat Nail Polish (3/5)

A relatively good top coat, it does the job of protecting and prolonging the colour beneath it, but I find that if it is put on too thickly it bubbles. Also if it is shaken (as some manicurists do before use, why???) it has more bubbles. These are seen by the delicate eye when it has dried...


Wet 'n' Wild Nail Polish in Refresh Mint (4/5)

Fun colour tiffany-like layered on well bright complete cover after two coats.third day not chipping but starting to fade and go matt so I think just for a particular day or night out this line is great. Low cost from drugstores.


Powder Room Remover Collection, nail polish remover by Butter (5/5)

This is the nicest smelling nail polish remover, powder room is scented like baby powder and is acetone-free.


Paparazzi Don’t Preach, Nicole by OPI (3/5)

This colour is great, it reminded me of a Hard Candy colour I used about 15 years ago, when candy floss pastels with block colouring were ‘in’. I saw an episode of Revenge with Emily Van Camp and the character who plays Madeline Stowe’s daughter was wearing a jade green dress, plum lip gloss and a cream butter colour with a hint of peach, delicate but full block over the nail – not see through.


Kiss the Bride, Orly nail lacquer (1/5)

I am always looking out for the perfect French manicure colour, ever since mademoiselle by Essie became thinner I have been searching for an alternative. I tried Orly for the first time. This colour ‘kiss the bride’ looked just right. I tried it over white tips and without to see what coverage it gave. It was most disappointing, the colour was streaky, therefore required three coats before it looked half decent.


ESSIE Nail Varnish Colour Adore-a-Ball (4/5)

This hasn’t thinned out yet – so ESSIE please don’t!
