Hi everyone. It’s the last day of 2013 so I thought I’d do a post on the polishes I’ve bought this month.
First up is a Nails Inc polish that came free with Glamour magazine.
The polish is Katy Spade New York by Nails Inc and it’s called Soho Silver. This is two coats of the polish. I loves the colour but wasn’t 100% on the formula. It’s not a really thick polish but it does streak. Two coats made it opaque but I did have to touch up a few spots where it had streaked. A good polish (and fab freebee), but I don’t really think it’s worth the Nails Inc price tag.
Next up are these three Barry M polishes.
Here’s the Textures Effect polish in Princess. I really liked the feel and the coverage of this polish. Although it’s a textured polish it’s not all that rough or bulky. It was opaque after two thin coats and didn’t take long to dry.
This is the Confetti Effect Polish in Liquorice. It only took one coat to get the coverage in the picture and I love the effect. The design I’ve done was inspired by KiraKiraNail. Check out her YouTube video as she does three great designs using it.
Third is the glitter polish in Yellow Topaz. I applied two coats for this picture. The glitter is a mix of big and small pieces and has a yellowy/green shimmer to it. I’ve used it on top of pink, Jade and green polishes and it looks great on all of them. You can see these on my Instagram.
The next polishes are a pack of five Boots No7 polishes I received in my secret Santa pressie. This is the first time I’ve used No7 polishes and I was impressed. The coverage is great, the formula isn’t too thick (or thin) and they lasted three days without chipping.
Last up is another Barry M polish.
This is Barry M’s Sequin Effect polish in White. I was looking forward to using this polish, but I really didn’t like it. The polish itself feels really gritty and (not sure if it’s just me) there’s too may glitter pieces in it. It felt really rough after it dried. Even after three top coats it wasn’t any better and was chipping and peeling the next day.
I hope you enjoyed this review. I’ll have a few simple, easy and glitter free tutorials in January. I’ll also have a couple of reviews too. I’ve bought a couple of Elegant Touch Envy Nail Wraps and made my first purchase from Born Pretty Store, so I’ll have lots of goodies to show off.
Thanks for looking and I hope you all have a Happy New Year, Kirsteen.
