1st coat

My Experience

Applying this nail polish was a little streaky at first but from afar could get away with being opaque in one coat. The formula was a little on the thick side for me but applying the second coat went more smoothly. 

My Thoughts

2nd coat

 

This nail polish was amazingly bright and pretty much a neon pink. Bit of streakiness on first coat but second coat definitely better. I really think that this colour is really nice summer nail polish and in spite of the formula its still very pretty. 

Overall

I give this nail polish a 7/10. The streakiness isn’t particularly nice  but the colour payoff  after the 2nd coat is magic.

Nails Inc: Flock You Nail Polish Review Part 1- Birds Before Boys

Hi Hi! 😀

I found another Nails inc set that I really liked the look of.

flock you setThe Look  nails inc birds before boys bottle

The bottle is a square shape with a silver lid with a black screw top underneath. The nail polish is a gold- coppery glittery shade with hints of pink.      

What I have

I have Birds before boys 14ml

1st coat

My Experience

This nail polish was easy to apply and I managed bout two swipes to cover the nail. It was sheer but looked as if another coat would just about do to make it opaque. Drying time seemed reasonable and just as predicted 2nd coat was opaque.

My Thoughts

2nd coat

This nail polish claim to have green in it according to the description on the box but I did not see it. It comes across as a gold or copper or even slight orange colour with hints of pink which altogether makes a very pretty look.

Overall

I give this nail polish a 8/10. It is expensive but the result along with the two coat opaqueness and lots of shimmery glitter is worth it.

Nails Inc. Self Made Mermaid Nail polish Duo review Part 1-Mermaid Parade

Hi Hi! 😀nails inc mermaid set

I found this and had to try it 😀

The Look mermaid parade

The nail polish is in a rectangle clear bottle with a silver pull off lid but has a black screw top lid underneath which is attached to a wide brush. The colour of the nail polish I’m reviewing is a light shimmery silver blue colour.

 

What I have

Mermaid Parade 14ml

Experience mermaid parade 3coats

Automatically I knew this nail polish would be sheer. First coat was very pretty and would look nice if you like it bit see through. The second coat was slightly more opaque but has slight streaks. With the shine it gives off and looking at it with distance you could get away with just the two coats of nail polish. I decided to go full opaque so I tried a third coat but again as mentioned there were still streaks.

My thoughtsmermaid parade 2coats

This nail polish has a very pretty shimmery look to it with a slight pearl finish. In certain light it also gives off a slight pink tint which is also quite nice.  

Overall

I give this nail polish a 7/10 The price is bit expensive and the nail polish is sheer and streaky in two coats but its really pretty  and looks pretty good if patient for 3rd coat.

OPI Nail polish review Matte Top coat

Hi Hi! 😀

I needed a new matte top coat so I decided on a different brand altogether from the one I usually use.Opi Matte top coat bottle

First Look

Typical large clear bottle with black lid but has a sticker on it saying matter top coat. The nail polish itself looks slightly frosty but may be the bottle

What I tried

I tried Matte top coat 15ml  

 

 

 

My Experience opi matter topcoat nails

I decided to paint my nails red as I don’t particularly like red on my nails but decided to see if it look better matte. The brush was quite thin but I  managed to get the nail done in two strokes. The nail polish was jus the right consistency and seemed to dry quite fast. I did notice I missed areas close to the cuticle area so I just touched that up and it was all smooth with no lumps on where I touched it up. 

My Thoughts

This topcoat was fairly easy to use in spite of the thin brush and it dried quick. I do feel this is expensive even though I paid less then retail price.

Overall

I would give this nail polish a 8/10 no problems, does what it should along with fast drying time but price is expensive given brand and size of bottle.

Nails Inc. London Crystal Colour Nail Polish Review Notting Hill Gate

Hi Hi! 😀

I found this nail polish online and thought it was pretty in it’s packaging and so thought I should definitely get one especially since I have not tried a Nails inc. nail polish before.

First Looknails inc notting hill gate box

The nail polish comes in a clear box with a black design and a bow. The bottle is a round clear bottle with the brand printed on. The lid is silver with crystals all round it. The polish is a cream bright pink.

I tried Notting Hill Gate 10ml  

 

 

 

 

 

Experiencenails inc notting hill gate nails

This nail polish had a thin brush and the formula was a touch watery. I added a bit extra on the brush, not too much just enough to make the first stroke a bit wider. The nail seemed opaque but it was actually quite see through as lately I have had white spots on my nails and they were showing through. Waiting time was bout average and then I applied the second coat of nail polish and it still hadn’t covered the white spots. Considering how watery it was it wouldn’t cover the white spots and since the nail polish looked plastic-y when dry It just didn’t look right. 

Thoughts

This nail polish was nicely presented in the box and the colour was very pretty but given the price of this nail polish it just doesn’t seem worth the money as its watery, not opaque and has a slightly plastic finish which seems unexpected given the presentation.

Overall

I give this nail polish a 5/10 This is for the pretty box, the crystal lid and the pretty colour but otherwise as a pretty gift or just to own one of these crystal lid nail polishes itself meaning this particular colour (no idea bout the others they have they could be better) doesn’t seem like one you should pay full  retail price for.

Essence Nail Polish Glow in the Dark: Girl on the moon

Hi Hi! 😀

I also picked up this nail polish while I was in Wilkinsons. I couldn’t resist as after that last one I am pretty sure there is a better glow in the dark after and I figured why not 😀

First Look

The bottle is a round clear bottle with a sticker with the brand on it and a black lid . The nail polish it self is kind of like a slight yellow tinted milky colour.Essence glow in the dark top coat bottle

Nail polish I tried

I tried 36 Girl on the moon 8ml

 

 

 

 

 

My Experience essence girl on he moon

The bottle recommended using another nail polish as a base so I applied my basecoat and just chose another polish on top. I then applied the two coats like the instructions suggested including the drying time in between each coat. Application was fine and a slight milky ness was left on my nails. 

My Thoughts

This nail polish applies on smoothly but if you have added a slight too much of this the dry time does take its time. It does actually glow in the dark and the glow is kind of like a glow in the dark stars kind of brightness. 😀 I decided to use this on my toes for those late night water and bathroom trips ;0)

Overall

I would give this nail polish a 7/10 it was cheap to buy, its easy to apply and it actually does what it says… it glows!! in two coats 😀

Born Pretty Nail Polish Review Blue Enchantress

Hi Hi! 😀

 I have purchased this from Ebay and I have never tried a Born Pretty nail polish as far as I know so I thought I’d try one.

First Look

The bottle is clear round bottle with the brand printed on the bottle with a black lid. The colour is a bright shimmery blue.

The Nail Polish I Triedborn pretty blue enchantress bottle

I tried Blue Enchantress 9ml

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My Experienceborn pretty blue enchantress nails

Applying this nail polish was seemed pretty good at first it was very thick and it gave signs it could be streaky or leave lumps on the end of the nail or by the cuticle if you didn’t apply one full stroke from cuticle to tip of nail or you put too much nail polish on the brush. The nail polish seemed easy to apply and was opaque in one coat.

My Thoughts

I did notice while applying this nail polish that this formula could be one that could stain your nails so I definitely would recommend wearing a really good base coat or add to coats. Removing the nail polish was a slight nightmare as it got right in to the skin area round the sides and near the cuticle and under the tips of the nails. The colour was a very pretty vibrant blue that I was very excited about.

 

Overall

I give this nail polish 5/10 its cheap in price and very pretty colour but it will stain and dry your nails and can be streaky if you try to touch up. I wouldn’t recommend this one unless you fully sort out your cuticles and wear a very good basecoat.

Filthy Gorgeous London Nail Polish Review Blah

 

Hi Hi!:D

 I have purchased filthy gorgeous nail polish before but it was a magnetic nail polish whereas this one was a regular cream nail polish.

First Look filthy gorgeous blah nail polish

The bottle is spherical and clear with a silver and black floral lace design lid. The nail polish is a green colour

The Nail Polish I Tried

I tried Blah 10ml

 

 

 

 

My Experiencefilthy gorgeous blah nails

Applying this nail polish was pretty good. These colours tend to be on the watery side so I tried to limit the amount of polish I had on the brush. With the right technique you could get away with this in one coat of nail polish as it was pretty opaque on its own but I decided on two coats to intensify the colour. 

 

My Thoughts

I really liked this nail polish as I have always liked this colour and have purchased other brands in it but it is mostly viewed as a vomit or bogey colour but I think its unique and striking,

Overall

I give this nail polish 7/10 as I like the colour and the bottle is cute but it is a touch watery for an expensive nail polish.

Essence Holo Rainbow Nail polish Review Holo-maniac

Hi Hi!:D

 I was in Wilkinsons and I didn’t realise they had nail polishes so I thought I’d pick some up and this is one of them 

First Look

The bottle is a round and clear with a white lid. The nail polish is a blue green colour with holographic fine glitter.

The Nail Polish I Triedessence holo-maniac nail polish

I tried Holo-maniac 8ml

 

 

 

 

 

 

My Experienceessence holo-maniac nails

Applying this nail polish I had no problems and I honestly feel I could get away with jus the one coat of nail polish if applied with the right technique. A lot of the glitter appeared with the first stroke whereas some glitters tend to get swiped off with most glittery nail polishes.

 

My Thoughts

I really liked this nail polish as the colour is very pretty and one coat is something you could get away with although I would recommend  second coat of nail polish. Drying time was on average for a glitter polish. I think this nail polish is good for parties or even everyday occasions.

Overall

I give this nail polish 8/10. Cheap price, good amount of glitter and pretty colour. may purchase other colours.
