Kinetics Orange Pop Review
I bought this in Dubai on my last holiday when it was sunny and hot and all I wanted was a neon polish on my fingers. And this was perfect.
Back in the cold, miserable UK it seems slightly too bright… but I still love it. I did have to do a base coat of white polish before painting my nails, and this needed 3 coats of colour. It took quite a long time to dry, even with Seche Vite which is a definite no-no for me. Also… I only noticed when I was taking these photos that it says ‘for artifical nails only’. What a strange thing to say, I’ve never seen that before. Have you? Does it mean that it’s not safe/hasn’t been tested on natural nails? *panics slightly* Well, I wore this for about a week and didn’t see or feel anything of concern.
This is not the best polish I’ve ever tried, but it fulfilled my holiday neon craving so I’m happy!\
Topshop AWOL Review
I have never been a fan of blue nail varnishes (as long term readers of my blog may know) but I might have to make an exception for this polish. It’s a bright, pure blue creme polish.
I’d never tried Topshop nail varnishes before but I was pleasantly surprised. 2 coat coverage, topped with Seche Vite.
It looks like this polish is now discontinued but you can look at the current Topshop range HERE. I did a colour comparison with the other bright blue nail varnishes I owned, so you can find one that suits your skin tone or pocket!
A england Dragon Review
Another polish from the beautiful a-england ‘The Legend’ collection. This one is a glorious emerald green that, depending on the light, has a blue or gold tint and a true holographic shimmer running through it. This is one of those polishes that just has you staring at your nails all day.
Just like the other polishes in this collection, this could have been a one-coater but I am a creature of habit and did two coats anyway. It was then topped with Seche Vite, although it’s super shiny and sparkley without.
‘The Legend’ collection is sadly no longer available, but you can get Adina’s stunning nail polishes HERE.
OPI Vant To Bite My Neck
This is another polish from OPI’s recent ‘Euro Centrale’ collection. It’s a striking aubergine purple creme. This could have been a one coater if I’d been more careful, but as is it took 2 thin coats. It also dried to a really high shine, but I am now too lazy to wait for nail polish to dry so I topped it with Seche Vite!
You can buy this polish HERE. You can see my reviews of the other polishes from this collection here: Polka.com, I Saw…U Saw…We Saw…Warsaw, Eurso Euro, My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours and You’re Such A Budapest.
Revlon One Perfect Coral
My love for Revlon’s polishes grows every time I use one. I bought this just before I went on holiday as it is the perfect colour for sunshine – coral is such a pretty colour and this one is just on the right side of orange.
This is 3 thin coats, which surprised me as most of their polishes are two coaters, topped with Seche Vite (of course). I think this colour is now discontinued, but you can pick up the current Revlon range HERE.
Do you have any favourite Revlon shades? I’m always looking to expand my collection 😉
