Polishes - RIMMEL - 60 Seconds Nail Polish

3.0
Created with Sketch.

May/04/2015

I do quite like these polishes. As the name suggests, they do dry quickly (though 60 seconds is an exaggeration, considering all the ones I've tried need at least two coats and the second coat takes longer to dry). As with most Rimmel polishes, the shape of the brush makes it quick and easy to apply neatly, too, and the range of colours is nice. They last a good three days with minimal …Read more

Top/Base Coats - Seche - Dry Fast Top Coat

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Apr/01/2015

Seche Vite is definitely a product worth having. It's like magic - dries almost completely in just a few minutes! The brush, while round and narrow, is long and spreads out over the nail, making neat application much easier, and the finish is smooth and shiny. However, after you've had the polish a while it does become thick and gloopy, making application messier, and I find that if you …Read more

Apr/01/2015

I do like these polishes. They come in some lovely colours; I have Wined Up (burgundy shimmer) and Jet Set Jade (a deep teal shimmer), and they're two of my favourite nail colours. Both are opaque in two coats and are almost completely dry in just a few minutes, which is ideal if you're in a rush getting ready to go somewhere (as I usually am). The clear polish in this range, Clearly …Read more

Polishes - Barry M - Nail Paint

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/13/2015

People seem to rave on about Barry M polishes, but I find them a bit hit-and-miss. They have a brilliant range of products which many other companies would charge twice the price for, and I especially like the glitter polishes. I've had mixed experiences with the regular Nail Paints and Gelly range; some, like Raspberry, Cardamom and Red Black are some of my favourite staple polishes, while …Read more

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Complete Salon Manicure - Shell We Dance

2.0
Created with Sketch.

Mar/13/2015

I wanted to like this polish more than I actually did, truly. The wide, flat brush makes neat application much quicker and easier, and the colour is a gorgeous pale sheer pink. It looks great with gold or silver glitter, or on its own for a gorgeous natural-looking manicure - or, at least it should. Unfortunately, the formula is so thick and gloopy that it's almost impossible to get a …Read more

Polishes - RIMMEL - Lasting Finish Pro - Rags to Riches

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Aug/01/2014

This is probably one of my all-time favourite nail polish colours; a shimmery, foil-effect olive green with tiny flecks of gold and silver when the light hits it. The consistency is just right - neither too thick, nor too runny - and the wide, flat brush makes application quick, neat and easy. Drying time is average, slow if you paint too many coats (I'd recommend two to three for full …Read more

Polishes - Ciaté London - Paint Pots

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jul/15/2014

I love the range of colours and effects this brand has, but I find the polishes to be a bit hit-and-miss. I have Strictly Legal (a shimmery purple with flecks of pink and gold) and I love it, but Apple and Custard (a pale green, somewhere between mint and sage) is awful formula-wise. It's gloopy and applies poorly with the brush given - it still looked streaky and uneven after two or three …Read more

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Smooth And Perfect

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/23/2014

I do love these polishes, despite all their glaring faults. The brush is quite wide and the formula is runny which makes it difficult to apply neatly to small nails, but the polish goes on smoothly and dries quickly to a lovely finish. I love the range of pastel shades, too - I have Air and Linen - and the subtle pearly shimmer is a nice touch; they're ideal for a nice, natural-looking …Read more

Polishes - Sally Hansen - Insta Dri Clearly Quick Polish

3.0
Created with Sketch.

Jun/01/2014

This polish dries extremely quickly, so it's great if you're impatient like me. The wide, flat brush also makes application quick and easy, although if you have small nails it does make it harder to paint them neatly. I find that it goes quite thick and cloudy like glue after a while which makes application more difficult, and I wouldn't recommend it as a base coat or standalone …Read more
