Models Own Speckled Eggs - Goose Yellow


This is okay to use, okay to apply and really, really slow drying. The 1st coat is thin and streaky and for the 2nd I used a thicker one that seem to give a good finish. After a few hours some of the polish seemed to be still moving as it hadn't dried properly. It was almost like it was sliding on the nails! Probably because I used a 2nd thicker coat I don't know, because other nails seemed to dry within the few hours! It's nice though and apart from the sliding it did last well!

Topshop Moondance

Sunny days in Scotland are rare, but they do mean holographic nail polish day!



This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying! How cool does it look in the sun! Sadly scuffs very easily and doesn't last long at all! Didn't put a top coat on so it might last longer with one. *faints* I do love a holo! I used this with NFU Oh's Aqua Base Coat.

Filthy Gorgeous Pulp

Now I was confused as to which blog to post this in, here or Economy. I paid £1 for it from Poundland but have looked into it and it's still selling for over £5 and these usually retail for £9 in Debenhams! And it's a higher end brand too! So Posh it was, or is!



This is okay to use and okay to apply. The first coat was thin and streaky, for the second I used a thick coat and that gave a good finish. Seemed okay drying too. It's a nice deep, dark purple. The brush seemed okay and the lid was nice to hold. I got a few others so will need to try them and compare! Lasted well.

Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday

I popped this on top of the last post!



This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying! You get really good coverage for 1 coat, but had to dab on a few bald spots so have plenty of glitter on the brush. I think it looks pretty cool on the Chanel polish. Lasted well.

China Glaze Sand Dolla Make You Holla

This is another of the Sea Goddess collection!


This is okay to use and okay to apply. It's not as easy to apply as the last two CG polishes, but is okay once you get a feel for it. Was fairly quick drying too. It's a kinda milky texture polish with different coloured glitter and some sparkle. In some lights it looks almost subtly pink rather than milky white. It's nice and lasted well.
