Bleu Water is a light blue, cream polish. It is a part of Bourjois 1Seconde line, which come with a wide rounded brush. I love this line of polished as I can apply 1 coat in a stroke or 2 (I have wide nail beds).

I used 2 coats for full opacity. It was easy to apply and dried to a shiny finish. The only reason I took 1 lippie off is because by the end of day 2 I had a couple of minor …

Polishes - Ciaté London - Geology Paint Pot - Moondust

Moondust is a purple base with gold micro shimmer which shifts blue - it looks as complex on the nail as it sounds. I own a miniature bottle which came as a part of Ciate Advent Calendar 2017.

Due to the high shimmer in this polish, I found it difficult to tell how well the opacity was building up - I applied 3 coats, but you might be able to get away with 2. It looked different in …

Polishes - A-England - Guinevere

Guinevere came out in January 2011 as a part of Mythical Collection. I would call it a heather, cream polish (lilac with a hint of grey).

The formula is great - I used 2 coats. It dried fast to a glossy finish and I had no problem with wearing time. I loved wearing this polish.

A England is one of my favourite brands and this polish has just reinforced that feeling.

Total Eclipse is a dark green micro glitter texture polish. Unlike other textures I have this one is not as textured (smaller glitter particles) and it dries to a satin finish, not matt.

It is rather shear. I applied 3 coats, which is enough for short nails, but longer nails might need an extra coat or two. I had no problem with drying (I didn't use a top coat because I wanted to …

Chain Reaction is a purple polish with silver shimmer. On the nail you don't see the shimmer, but it looks metallic. It is very pretty and glow-y. I own a miniature bottle which was a part of Ciate Advent Calendar 2016.

The formula is very good - it's very easy to apply and I had no problem with the drying or the wearing time. The only little issue was that my topcoat (INM Out …

Polishes - Creative Nail Design - Vinylux - Field Fox

I believe Field Fox is one of the best sellers form CND Vinylux range. It's a nude, cream polish. I know that nudes are exceptionally hard to get right. This particular one looks too grey/cool with my skin tone to be flattering. Having said that I don't completely dislike it either, as in certain lighting you can see lilac undertones which makes is look rather interesting.

I …

Raspberry Collins was originally released in Summer 2013 Suncatcher Collection. But, my miniature bottle was a part of last year's Advent Calendar by Ciate. It's a dark pink, cream polish. Despite autumn months, I really enjoyed wearing it.

It applies really well - I put on two coats which gave me full coverage. I had no problem with drying time and this polish has lasted …

Piccadilly Court is a berry-plum, cream polish. I am sure this polish was from M&S Beauty Advent Calendar 2016, and as I can't find much information about it online, I wonder if it was designed exclusively for the calendar.

The colour itself is beautiful, rich berry cream, which I always crave for in the autumn months. But, I wasn't impressed with the formula - thick, yet …

Seas the Day is a medium teal, cream polish. I own a miniature bottle which was a part of one of the Ciate Advent Calendars.

The application was amazing (and I don't say this lightly). This is easily a one coater, but I applied 2 coats. It is fast drying and it lasts really well. Absolutely love wearing this one. And the best thing about it - it doesn't stain.

Polishes - Barry M - Classic Glitter Nail Paint - Ethereal Forest

fromHalyal

2 months ago

Ethereal Forest is a blue-green glitter suspended in clear jelly. I think this is probably more of a topper than a polish in its own right (you would need 3+ coats to build it up).

I used 1 coat over Essence Mermaid of the Galaxy (which is the same colour as the glitter, shimmer polish). I am not sure it was the best base, as you can hardly see the glitter. I will try it again in the …
