Revlon 260 Girly Review
I have been eyeing up this beautiful polish for ages and I finally caved in. And I’m so glad I did. This is a pinky-lilac sheer base nail varnish, with multi-sized, multi-coloured hex glitters (blue, purple, baby pink, fuchsia…*swoon*). The glitter sits really well with normal application, so you don’t need to place the glitter like you do in some polishes. I love the way the glitter peeks through the base, almost like a jelly sandwich manicure in one bottle!
This was two coats of polish, which pleasantly surprised me. Also, glitters like this are usually top coat thirsty and need at least two coats to sit smoothly but this only needed one coat of Seche Vite. I am totally smitten!

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!
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 😉
