China Glaze The Glam Finale Nail Polish The Perfect Holly-Day Review

perfect hollyday bottlehollyday nails topcoat

Hi Hi! 😀

I was browsing on new nail polishes and I found this one and I have a thing for green nail polishes so I thought why not?! ;0)

First Look 

The nail polish is in a circular clear bottle with a black lid. The nail polish is a dark green colour with a slight shimmer.

The Nail Polish I tried

I tried The Perfect Holly-Day 14ml

 

pefect hollyday nailsMy Experience

This nail polish had a fairly thin brush and it seemed to dry fairly quick too so I had a slight issue on first application. As I took my time and as the brush was quite thin when I noticed I missed bits I went over it and it dried in to an uneven blob so I started again. I started trying to have slightly more on the brush and being more careful on not missing parts of the nail. The nail polish is opaque in one coat and it dries matte where the shimmer gives a slightly different look to the nail.

My Thoughts

I did like  this nail polish but I will say the drying time is bit quick and I did end up making a little bit of a mess but otherwise everything else was all good. Price was reasonable, drying time is nice if you can paint perfectly in one go, polish is opaque in one coat, colour is pretty both as matte and with top coat on and the brush does start to widen up so it is possible to paint in the normal three strokes. I will say that missing the tip or the sides of the nails its not ideal to correct it where it will blend in as it will dry a blob so best the thing is to just apply a second coat.

Overall

I give this nail polish 8/10. I like pretty much most things bout it but I think its definitely one to practice with to time yourself better and avoid missing areas as corrections don’t blend in if that makes sense but I would definitely buy again.

Born Pretty Holo Nail polish #33 Review

Hi Hi! 😀

I was browsing on Ebay and I have always seen Born Pretty nail polishes and never tried them and these were so pretty

First Look  born pretty #33 bottle

The nail polish is in a square clear bottle with a black lid. The nail polish is very pretty and glittery with greens purples and blues in it.

The Nail Polish I tried

I tried #33 6ml

 

 

born pretty #33 bottleMy Experience

This nail polish required a black base colour and it said on the sellers item page that any black nail polish would do so I used the Seventeen Gel Colour one I had. Waited for it to dry and started using the nail polish and I love it from the very first swipe. Amazingly pretty and applied well.

My Thoughts born pretty #33 nails

I did like  this nail polish a lot. it reminds me of a peacock, the galaxy or even a tiny bit of the ocean. It applied nicely and seemed to cover the nail in one coat. The glitters were so pretty and one coat is more then enough but yeah feel like another coat go for it 😀

Overall

I give this nail polish 9/10. I like the colour, the price is very cheap and its opaque or gives the illusion it is 😀 Would definitely purchase more colours or the same again when it runs out.

Seventeen Quicker Slicker Nail Polish Sparkler Review

Hi Hi! 😀

I bought another one while I was there lol just because of the blue sticker ;0)

The Nail Polish I tried

I tried Sparkler

2nd coat

1st coat

My Experience

I noticed this nail polish was very water on application and the glitter just wasn’t settling and just gave off this slight jelly like look. I think with a second it could look different and possible better so I tried it.

 

My Thoughts

I did like the idea of this polish and will try with a makeup sponge to apply it as its just too watery. I maybe able to getaway with this is as a light sparkle topcoat. I do think its pretty but I think it could be better. 

Overall

I give this nail polish 6/10. I think its pretty and affordable  but its just too watery :0(

Seventeen Quicker Slicker Nail Polish Fury Review

Hi Hi! 😀

I was browsing in the shop after work and decided that I would buy some nail polish 

First Look  seventeen fury nail polish bottle

The nail polish is in a small clear bottle with the seventeen label and black lid with a short brush. The colour is a very pretty metallic gold with a hint of green.

The Nail Polish I tried

I tried Fury

 

 

My Experience

I noticed this nail polish was opaque on the first coat and it had a slight streakiness about it but was not obvious. It dried fairly quickly and I had no problems applying. I also tried a second coat and to be honest besides being a touch darker it makes no difference so you can get away with one coat.

My Thoughts seventeen fury nails

I did like the colour of this nail polish as previous gold nail polishes had too much shimmer in it that the application was always very sheer. In spite of the slight hint of green on the bottle it does not show on the nails. Fairly cheap nail polish so not bad for what it is.

Overall

I give this nail polish 9/10. I liked the colour, the price is affordable, application was nice and formula was a touch streaky but you can get away with it. Would purchase again.

Etude House Juice Recipe Nail Polish Banana

Hi Hi! 😀

I was browsing on Ebay and a different Etude House nail polish came up so figured id see what this one was like.

First Look  Juice recipe banana nail polish bottle

The nail polish is in a circular shaped bottle. It is clear with a black lid I also noticed there was a straw sticker on the side of the bottle to look like a juice box. The nail polish is a bright yellow colour with some glitter inside it.

banana nail polish bottleThe Nail Polish I tried

I tried Banana 8ml

 

 

My Experience

I noticed this nail polish was quite thin  and watery on first application. I also noticed a slight sweet banana smell. The nail polish applied very thinly dried quick and I  was ready for the second coat of polish. Applying the second coat I tried to keep it thin to prevent drips and a built up on the sides of the nail. The second coat wasn’t particularly opaque but it was a definite improvement. I then just went over with a very light third coat of polish to even things out and hide any bald spots.

My Thoughts juice recipe banana nails

I did like the idea of the banana nail polish and it does look pretty on the bottle but it just looked quite thick and slightly odd looking although it may have been my application. I did attempt a second attempt which is the picture.

Overall

I give this nail polish 7/10. I like the name, the colour, the price however it is slightly watery and I had slight trouble applying it neatly

My First Butter Nail Polish Review Pimms

butter nails lidHi Hi! 😀

I was browsing on Ebay and realised that I have never used a Butter nail polish before and there was one up slightly cheap so I bought it :0)…. 

First Look 

The nail polish is in a rectangular shaped bottle. It is clear with a black lid. The nail polish is a slightly dark yellow crème colour. I also found that the lid is not the actual lid. Its just a cap that sits on top and then underneath there is the screw lid with the attached brush that has a picture of a bird.

The Nail Polish I tried

I tried is Pimms 11ml

 

 

My Experiencebutter nails

I noticed this nail polish was opaque on the very first coat of nail polish. The brush however is fairly thin so I had to apply more then three strokes to paint the whole nail. The formula was slightly watery so it was hard to keep away the bald spots. I did go over certain areas as I noticed when it dried(it did try fairly quick) if there were any slight ridges on the nail they showed up quite a lot and my ridges aren’t very deep. Please see picture on left. The other picture is of the touch up I had done

My Thoughts

I have never used a butter nail polish and I was expecting quite a lot from it given its original price and the fact that is 3 free. I did like the fact that the first coat was pretty much opaque however after drying it made something strange happen which I’m not entirely sure shows up in the photo well enough. I did expect the formula to be a touch watery as most yellows are. I may purchase a different colour as I felt this did not suit my skin tone.

Overall

I give this nail polish 7/10. I do like the idea of 3 Free, the quick drying time and the fact that it is opaque in one coat but I don’t like the visible ridges when it dries or the original price and the thin brush. I may purchase a different colour to compare.

I noticed this nail polish seemed very shiny and slightly messy application although it may have just been me :op The nail polish was opaque in one coat and seemed to dry fairly fast. 

My Thoughts

I don’t see anything particularly fancy bout this nail polish and it did last a few days but I don’t wear nail polish for more then three days before changing it.

I give this nail polish a 8/10 Affordable, opaque and seems like any other nail polish I have tried.

Collection 7 Day Wear Nail Polish Review: White Out

Hi Hi! 😀

I was in need of a new white nail polish, so I picked up one while I was at Superdrugs. Collection had one for £2.99 which I haven’t tried before

First Look collection white out bottle

The nail polish bottle is a short circular clear bottle with  a black lid. The Nail polish is a plain white colour. 

The Nail Polish I tried

I tried White Out 8ml

 

 

 

 

My Experiencecollection white out

I noticed this nail polish wasn’t particularly runny like other pale coloured nail polishes and I found that it seemed a touch streaky when I applied it but if left to settle it slightly evens out. It did not take too long to dry so I was able to apply the second coat of nail polish after.

My Thoughts

I enjoyed applying this nail polish as I managed to be quite neat with it in spite of my incredibly short nails. The nail polish seemed lightly streaky at first but with the second coat of polish it is much smoother looking and definitely more opaque. This nail polish was not watery like most pale colours and it is quite cheap to buy in store so all round a nice one ;0)

Overall

I give this nail polish a 9/10. Its affordable, its opaque in two coats and its fairly easy to apply on the nail. No problems here and will most likely buy again.

Ruby Wing Colour Changing Nail Polish Review Cut Grass

Hi Hi! 😀

I was excited to see a green nail polish so I decided to try this one out. I was really interested to see what cut grass would smell like in nail polish.

First Look ruby wing cut grass nail polish bottle

The nail polish bottle is a square bottle with a gold lettering on the front. There is a gold round lid and mine came with a little label showing the colour change the polish makes in the sun.

The Nail Polish I tried

I tried Cut Grass 15ml

 

 

 

My Experienceruby wing cut grass nails

I noticed the thin brush and the watery consistency of this nail polish and I knew it would need more then one coat of polish. I waited for the first layer to dry and given how thin it was it took a bit longer then I thought. I applied the second to cover the sheer parts. It still looked like it may need a third and so I waited for it to dry before I applied. This took far too long and even though it felt slightly dry it was extremely sticky and could leave dents in the nail and so I didn’t want to risk a third.

My Thoughts

I did not like this nail polish. It was really thin and in spite of the consistency took forever to dry and needed more then 2coats of nail polish. The smell of the nail polish smelt nothing like grass and I’m not entirely sure of what it did smell like. I like the colour but maybe the formula needs to be different. 

Overall

I don’t like this nail polish except for the colour of it so I will give it a 3/10

Rita Ora’s Rimmel 60secs Super Shine Nail Polish Review Neon Fest

Hi Hi! 😀

I have enjoyed using Rita Ora’s previous nail polish from Rimmel and decided to try this one.

First LookRimmel Neon Fest Nail Polish Bottle

The nail polish bottle is round and clear and has a black lid with white flowers and Rita Ora’s name. The nail polish is cream and a bright pink.

The Nail Polish I tried

I tried Neon Fest 8ml

 

 

 

My Experience

I applied this nail polish and it was really nice. The thickness wasn’t too much and the thick brush made it easy to get the whole nail painted in three swipes. The nail polish was opaque in one coat and didn’t take too long to dry.

My Thoughts

I really like this nail polish. The colour is very pretty and works well for any time but especially summer time. Quick drying time and opaque in one coat makes applying this nail polish extremely quick and pleasant.

Overall

I give this nail polish 10/10. £2.99 price, quick drying time and quick to apply. What more could you want 😀
