Ciate London Mani Marker Nail Polish Pen Review Role Model

Hi Hi! : D

I heard about this and thought I would give it a try.

First Look

This was a black pen with silver stripes and the colour of the polish near the lid which was a purple blue colour.

The Nail Polish I tried

This was Role model

My Experience

This pen told me I had to press down on the nib for a few seconds but I had to wait quite a bit longer before anything happened. Finally things start happening and I was able to start painting my nails. The pen had nail polish coming out but not quite enough as it dried quick and was leaving streaks. the first hand I had to do two coats but the second seemed to look more opaque in one once the nail polish started flowing. I have two photos and one is without and one I had to apply the topcoat to smooth it out and it looked so much better.

My Thoughts

This nail polish pen seems quite nice for those quick days as it was easy to apply once the nail polish was flowing through the nib more and was pretty opaque in one coat. I would recommend trying out different pressures as the nail polish worked best when pressed bit harder. Also it will be quite streaky at first and when applying a second coat you may end up spreading it. Define need of topcoat.

Overall

I give this nail polish pen a 7/10. I like the idea of it but it is bit expensive and I do feel it needs to be used a couple times when dry more you can full use it.

Barry M Frosted Cupcakes Nail Polish Review Strawberries and Cream

 

Hi Hi! 😀

Spotted this in Superdrugs and thought I would pick it up along with my top coats I was getting. It reminded me of ice cream

First Look

The bottle is squared with a silver lid. The nail polish is a pale pink colour with flakey glitter.

The Nail Polish I tried

I have Strawberries and Cream 10ml

My Experience

I wasn’t too sure about this nail polish as pale colours I don’t do too well with. This particular nail polish was very sheer in the first coat and I immediately knew I may have an issue applying the second coat and may be a third. The nail polish consistency was a touch runny and sheer with the little pieces of glitter covering most of the nail. Drying time was quick the first coat but the second one took longer. I had to get involved with a third coat but I ended up with slight bald spots to fix up.

My Thoughts

To be honest I don’t particularly like the effect of this nail polish. The colour is pretty but it would look much nicer with different kind of glitter or even just as a cream nail polish. The watery consistency was awkward to apply for me and some ended up settling in my cuticle area.

Overall

I would give this nail polish a 4/10. I love the name, the colour and the price but otherwise i’m not a fan of this nail polish.

China Glaze Nail Polish Review Flying Dragon

Hi Hi! 😀

I couldn’t resist this one!! Why?! It’s because its called Flying dragon 😀 I love dragons

First Look

Clear bottle with print and black lid with logo. Dark purple colour with blue and pink glitter.

The Nail Polish I tried

Flying Dragon 14ml

My Experience

With this nail polish I was expecting opaque in one or two coats as dark colours tend to do well in coverage. This nail polish seemed easy to work with but it dried very very quickly so I had to swipe the nails quickly as going over it half way seemed to make a very weird dry rub sort of thing happen(no sure if that makes sense.) I wanted two coats to make the nails stand out more as they seemed to dull quickly. The nail polish I discovered had a matte effect. The pretty colour I could see in the bottle didn’t seem very visible. <—— the matte look in this photo. The next day I thought I would apply a topcoat and see if the nail polish was different in the way it stood out. ——-> This photo is the shiny nails and I actually prefer it like this as the glittery effect looks more true to the bottle.

My Thoughts

I really like this nail polish even though purple isn’t one of my favourite colours I do like the slightly pinkier version of this one with the glitter. It’s very pretty. I love the fact that it dries quickly and that I can have a choice of matte or shiny 😀 I think two coats is best for this nail polish to get more of an effect from the glitter. The photos do not do it justice.

Overall

I give this nail polish an 8/10. Quick drying, pretty colour, dragon name and quick drying not to mention the matte to shiny thing 😀

China Glaze Nail Polish Review Highlight Of My Summer

Hi Hi! 😀

I have never owned a China Glaze nail polish before and I saw a Youtuber wearing this particular one and I do love my greens so thought I would give it a try,   

First Look

Clear bottle with print. The shape seems to get slightly smaller going up. Black lid with logo. The nail polish is a pastel green but seems fairly bright.

The Nail Polish I tried

Highlight of my Summer 14ml

 My Experience

I have used pale nail polishes before and don’t expect much from the first coat so there was no surprise that this nail polish was a touch watery and sheer on the first coat. The second coat was slightly better but I wanted to do three just to get it completely opaque. I think if I had applied the first one better the second one could have been enough. The drying time was pretty quick as I used quite thin coats of nail polish.

My Thoughts

I love the colour of this nail polish and its exciting that the colour doesn’t look too weird on my nails and make my skin tone darker then it is. I think it will be nice for summer :0) Even though I have to apply three coats the quick drying time makes it bearable 😀 Very pretty 😀

Overall

I give this nail polish 8/10. I like the colour and I like the drying time I just wish it wasn’t watery,

Retro Revival 2017 Essie Nail Polish Review Prima Bella

Hi Hi! 😀

Found this in Boots! Thought I would try this particular nail polish as I have always been drawn to darker shades and was bit worried the lighter pinks wouldn’t suit me :0(

First LookEssie prima bella bottle

The bottle is the typical square like bottle with the white lid but there is also these shiny starts all over it. The nail polish is a dark pink with shimmers

The Nail Polish I Tried

I tried Prima Bella 13.5ml

My Experience

Essie prima bella nailsUsing this nail polish wasn’t a huge problem for me but I did notice that it was slightly sheer. I applied two coats. There is a slight shimmer in the bottle but is not noticeable on the nails. The consistency seemed easy to work with.

My Thoughts

I actually like how this pink turned out as I have not had many Essie nail polishes I have been happy with. The colour is pretty and seems like it could suit a lot of skin tones.

Overall

I give this nail polish 7/10. I do like this nail polish colour but the price is bit expensive for me.

Seventeen Colour Wave Nail Collection Review

Hi Hi! 😀

This is a gift from Christmas

First Lookseventeen red bottle seventeen navy bottle seventeen pink bottle seventeen purple bottle seventeen nude bottle seventeen multi glitter seventeen pink glitter bottle

The bottles are all short with short black handles with a sticker round the bottle with the colour of the nail polish on the side.

The Nail polish I tried

There are 7 nail polishes all 4ml 

Navy, Red ,Pink, Purple, Nude, Pink glitter and Multi Glitter

My Experience dsc_7198

Each nail polish was slightly differently to what I expected. The navy nail polish was a nice dark blue but its was slightly patchy so I had to apply a second coat of nail polish. The red nail polish is quite a nice red but again slightly patchy so I had to put an extra coat of polish. The pink actually looked a lot like the red nail polish and was opaque in one coat. The purple I liked the colour of but after applying two coats is was still patchy as you can see in the picture. The Nude seemed to be a matte nail polish as it looked thick and creamy with no shine once applied.dsc_7204dsc_7201 The glitter nail polishes were really messy and did not apply nicely so I did not try the multi glitter as I was having a hard time taking the glitter off my  skin after removing the nail polish.dsc_7193 dsc00017 dsc00023

My Thoughts

With the colours I liked the purple, blue and pink but it was a shame that the formula was a bit runny and patchy. I thought the smaller bottles were the perfect size for travel and for using the polish up before it dries up.

Overall

I give these nail polishes 5/10. I liked the colours just did not like the way it applied and the end result.

Academy Of Colour Nail Polishes Dark Tower Review

Hi Hi! 😀

I received this gift set over Christmas and finally got a chance to use it. There are 4 different nail polishes in this set. 

First Lookdsc_7174dsc_7180

The bottles are all square shaped and have a long gold lid. It has a clear label with the brand on it and no nail polish name.

The Nail Polish I Trieddsc_7164dsc_7165

I tried two reds, a purple and a blue 11ml (there are no names)

My Experience dsc_7160dsc_7159

The application was pretty smooth and opaque in one coat. The handle was a bit awkward to apply but I made it work.

My Thoughts dsc_7173

To be honest the colours aren’t my first choice as it is mostly red. The application was good for one coat on all of them. My favourite was the blue and the purple.dsc_7167

Overall

I give this nail polish 8/10. Red is a bit too red for me ;0)

The Body Shop Nail Polish Review Burgandy Red

Hi Hi! 😀

I got this FREE 😀

Last year I found a voucher but I completely forgot to review it. This is my first time using a nail polish from The Body Shop.

First Look body shop nail polish burgandy

The bottle was clear and round with a metal lid with The Body Shop logo.

The Nail Polish I Tried

I have Burgundy Red 8ml

My Experiencebody shop nails burgandy

Using this nail polish was actually pretty nice compared to a similar colour I have. I managed to get it pretty much opaque in a slightly more then thin coat and it seemed to dry pretty quick for me. I did do a second coat for any slightly bald patches but otherwise one coat seems good.

My Thoughts

I really like this dark red blood kind of colour. It is one of my favourite dark shades and the formula seemed much better then the one from the Play nail polish that I have from Etude House. The only thing I will say is that it is a slight bit watery but most colours like this tend to be for some reason.

Overall

I give this nail polish 8/10 Watery but better then the brands I have used in similar colour. Drying time was quick and it comes off really shiny 😀

Tony Moly Pokémon Nail Polish Review Oddish #5

Hi Hi! 😀

This is my 2nd Tony Moly Nail Polish

First Look tony moly pokemon nail polish

The bottle is pretty simple enough, clear with a black lid with the logo on top. There is a sticker with Oddish on the front. Colour is a nice dark but bright green.

The Nail Polish I Tried

I have #5 Oddish

My Experiencetony moly pokemon nails

This nail polish was a bit thin in the way it applied and I had to be careful of it being streaky. The nail polish dried a bit fast for me in between strokes but I managed to get it opaque in two coats.

My Thoughts

I have always really liked this sort of colour green and it being a thin formula was disappointing. This was my first Tony Moly nail polish (not the glitter one from before)

Overall

I give this nail 6/10 as I do like the whole pokemon idea, the colour of it and how shiny it is but I feel it does pretty well if you don’t mind the thin formula.

Collection 2000 Gothic Glam Nail Polish Review 4 Poison

Hi Hi! 😀

First Lookdsc_7151

The nail polish is a round bottle with a long black handle. The colour is a dark blue and looks shimmery.

The Nail Polish I tried

I tried Poison 12ml

My Experience

dsc_7141Applying this nail polish was no problem. It was pretty much opaque but I did prefer to do two coats just so it wasn’t patchy. The consistency of the nail polish was easy to work with but as my cuticles were a touch dry to the weather it did attract the nail polish to them which kind of made it look messier then it was especially due to the wide brush it has which is very wide and straight as getting into the curve of the cuticle was slight difficult.

My Thoughts

I was excited to try out this nail polish as I do like a blue and it reminds me of a glittery blue I used to love using even though this one is a touch darker it is still beautiful. 

Overall

I give this nail polish 8/10. The brush is slightly awkward and the opaqueness could be slightly more but it still works. I would buy this again.
