Seventeen Potion Nail Varnish

I actually bought this polish ages ago but I took so long to get round to swatching it that I forgot just how pretty it looked. I think I first picked it up hoping that it was a (much, much more affordable) Chanel ‘Peridot’ dupe.

Models Own Aciiied Nail Varnish

My lovely fiance built me a light box and I am in love. I don’t have to wait for the 20 seconds in a British day where there is daylight to take photos! It is amazing!

This is Models Own Aciiied nail varnish, a bright neon lime green that is as pretty as it is garish. I love bright colours and this is definitely a new favourite. This is two coats with a Seche Vite topcoat.

It doesn’t look like this nail varnish is available from Models Own anymore, but there may be a similar one in the neon ‘polish for tans’ range HERE.

Gabrini 363 Nail Varnish

Gabrini 363 Nail Varnish

Today’s swatch is the excitingly-named Gabrini 363 nail varnish (I HATE polishes with no names… it just seems like such a missed opportunity for fun!)

So apparently Pantone’s colour of the year for 2013 is Emerald which is wonderful news as green is my all time favourite colour. And this nail varnish definitely fits the emerald bill. This is a lovely dark green shimmer polish that has a beautiful glow in the light. This makes me feel quite Christmassy!

This is two coats of Gabrini 363 nail varnish topped with my usual Seche Vite.

You can find Gabrini’s full range HERE, although for some reason that website says that number 363 is a red polish… perhaps they’ve changed the names since I bought this! Worth bearing in mind before ordering though.

Inglot 954 Nail Varnish

Inglot 954 Nail Varnish

I cannot stop staring at this nail varnish. Just LOOK at it! Inglot 954 nail varnish is a very pretty acid green creme polish with a very subtle bright green shimmer that gives it depth. If this isn’t summer in a bottle I don’t know what is!

 

This had really good coverage, you could probably get away with one clever coat but this is two coat topped with my trusty Seche Vite.

You can have a peek at the full Inglot range HERE. I also reviewed one of their beautiful matte nail enamels HERE.

Don’t mind me, I’ll just stand here staring at my nails forever…

Kiko 391 Grass Green Review

I had never heard of Kiko polish before but I went shopping with some lovely nail ladies I met through Twitter and they kindly introduced me. They were all in the sale at £1.50 as well so I bought a few – well, it’d be rude not to really!

This is the first I’m swatching: a beautiful, bright green creme. This is two coats and a layer of Seche Vite. I love green polish so much and this one is such a great shade, I am thrilled to find it!
