Masquerade is a glitter polish. It's a clear base loaded with teal, purple and bronze glitters. I am rarely drawn to glitter polishes, but with Christmas just around the conner I find starkly polishes more and more appealing. This glitter is easy to work with. You can use it as a topper or by itself. If you are using it by itself you will need 2-3 coats to reach full opacity. It wears really well. The removal is a PITA, but I guess it is to be expected from a glitter polish.

Copper Dreams is a current Superdrug Limited Edition polish. It's a copper/gold duo chrome effect polish with occasional blue flakie/shimmer added in (the blue shimmer is only apparent at close proximity) . It's an unusual combination, yet it looks very subtle on the nail. I think it's very appropriate for this time of year, as the colour combo makes you think of falling leaves?This polish is a little thin, so I needed 3 coats to reach full opacity. Having said that, it is easy to build up. I had no problem with drying (unlike Purple Hex - the other Superdrug LE polish). It lasted well on me. I am not sure I am fully sold on this polish. For all its unusualness it looks pretty ordinary. I will not be running out to get myself back ups, but I wouldn't discourage anyone trying this polish either.

This Matte setting Spray from Barry M is a pleasant surprise. Setting powders and banana powders tend to make my face look sallow even those the promises to be transparent. I also have oily skin so staying matte is a big deal to me. Although this product retails at 4.99 Brittish pound is quite good. Its not a wonder product but its a decent setting spray that also prevents excessive makeup transference. The product works best on light make-up, bb-creams, cc-creams and tinted moisturisers. Heavier foundations and powders will probably need a very different type of setting spray.

Purple Hex is a current Superdrug Limited Edition polish. I bought thinking it was purple-teal duo chrome polish, but it is not. It's a purple jelly loaded with teal shimmer. Very unusual combination. I can't think of anything remotely similar from mainstream brands. But an American indi maker, called Cupcake Polish has recently released a new collection, which contains a polish with a similar colour/finish combo, called All Tide Up. It's a very thin polish. I applied 4 coats and even then it wasn't completely opaque. All these coats took forever to dry and I wasn't totally surprised to find sheet marks the following morning of 2-3 nails. I think it might be best using a base colour. I am not sure I am fully sold on this polish, but I like how unusual it is, so I wouldn't discourage anyone trying it.

Forest is from Barry M Silk line. It is a blue-green shimmer polish. It dries to a matte finish. I am not a fan of a matte finish polishes. However, I love it with glossy top coat. When I applied my usual QDTC something strange has happened - the tips of my nails looked 'steamed up'. By the following day this has mainly disappeared, but not completely. I am not sure whether this was due to the top coat used, not waiting for the polish to dry fully before applying the TC or the length of my nails.This polish is very easy to apply, 2 coats give perfect coverage. If you like matte shimmer, you should like this polish. I find all Barry M polishes are a great value for money (in the UK).
