Polishes - Ciaté London - White Heat

3 days ago

White Heat was a part of this year's Ciate Advent Calendar (day 5). It's a white, cream polish.

I have never thought I would EVER score a white polish 5 lippies, but this one definitely deserves it. If your nails are smooth (no ridges) this might even pass as a one-coater, which is unheard of for a white polish. On my picture it might not look particularly great, but white is …

3 days ago

Paparazzi was a part of this year's Ciate Advent Calendar (day 3). It's an oxblood (black red), crelly polish.

Brilliant formula on this one - the first coat applied without any streaks, as dark red. The second coat just deepened the colour further - stunning. It was fast drying and lasted really well on me.

Having been deeply disappointed with the first two polishes …

Tutu was a part of this year's Ciate Advent Calendar (day 2). It's a baby pink, cream polish. Not the most Christmassy of colours. The first coat looked almost nude, but as the opacity builds up the colour changes in appearance.

I was very disappointed with the formula. I applied 2 coats and it was still very streaky (some of my nails have slight ridging). I was using it as a …

Loop the Loop was a part of this year's Ciate Advent Calendar (day 1). It's a lemon yellow, cream polish. Not the most Christmassy of colours.

I was very disappointed with the formula. I applied 2 coats and it was still very streaky (some of my nails have slight ridging). I was using it as a base for some nail art, so the streaks didn't matter, but if you want to be able …

12 days ago

Ascalon was a part of The Legends collection, which came out around 2012. It might be discontinued now, but it is still widely available online. It's a gunmetal shimmer polish with a purple shift.

The formula is great, which is the case with majority of my A-England polishes - it is easy to apply and 2 coats gives perfect coverage. It is quick drying and it lasted really well on …

Polishes - Bourjois - 1 Seconde Nail Polish - Bleu Water

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

19 days ago

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

21 days ago

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.

Polishes - RIMMEL - Space Dust Nail Polish - Total Eclipse

3.0

fromHalyal

26 days ago

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 …

1 month ago

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 …
