Archived: Topshop's Plume Nail Polish

Topshop's Plume Polish is one of my all time favourite Topshop nail polishes. I meant to publish a post about it ages ago but never got a chance. Plume is a gorgeous shimmery purple polish with flashes of blue through it.

As with all of Topshop's polishes the formula of Plume is great! It has a slightly thinner consistency than most Topshop polishes so you may need 2 or 3 coats of this polish but it is so worth it. It dries quickly and is fairly hard wearing. The brush applies the polish really well also.

I love how shimmery this polish is. It is one of the prettiest purple metallic polishes that I own.

What do you guys think about this polish? Have you tried Topshop's Plume polish? Let me know your thoughts!

Archived: Topshop's Marshmallow Nail Polish

Topshop's Marshmallow Polish is an amazing shimmery pink polish with hints of gold and purple through it at times. I love it's shimmery colour changing ability. It's quite unique and you know how much i love a good old unique polish.

This polish painted on really nicely with Topshop's excellent formula and great brush. As this polish is shimmery you may need two to three coats of polish for full opacity but I think it's worth it! It is a hard wearing polish and lasts well on your nails. As with most Topshop nail polishes it also dries fairly quickly.

What do you think of Topshop's Marshmallow polish? Have any of you bought this polish? Let me know what you think in the comments section. 

Archived: Ciate's Mural Moment Mosaic Polish

How unbelievably cool is this Mosaic Polish? Ciate's Mural Moment Mosaic Polish dcertainly does create a mosaic look on the nails which I think is great! I've never had another polish like this so I'm extremely happy that I have tried this one.

I have painted this mosaic polish over Nails Inc's gorgeous Winter Lilac polish which I think looks fantastic.

The mosaic polish consists of large and small pale pink, pale blue and cobalt blue matte glitter particles which create the mosaic effect. The mosaic particles are in a clear polish.

The polish applied nicely and I got a great effect with some strategic mosaic particle placement.

I think this polish is pretty cool and would definitely recommend it.

What do you guys think about this polish? Have you tried it before?

Archived: Essie's Sittin' Pretty Nail Polish

Essie's Sittin' Pretty Polish is an amazing lilac polish which I adore. I am a major fan of Essie nail polish and I love lilac polish so this was a dream polish for me.

The formula seemed a little thinner than normal when I started off but after two coats my nails were totally opaque. Therefore, the formula was just as excellent as normal. This polish glides on beautifully to the nails which is one of the reasons that I love Essie so much. I found that this polish dries pretty quickly and is hard wearing. Definitely always use a good top and base coat.

I can't get enough of this lovely Sittin' Pretty Essie Nail Polish. What do you think about this polish? Have you tried this particular one? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

MAC's Fashion Fizz Glitter Nail Polish

MAC's Fashion Fizz Glitter Polish is a really unique yellow glitter. It consists of large hexagonal pieces of matte yellow glitter, smaller and then tiny matte yellow glitter particles as well as an iridescent peach shimmer throughout the polish. I have painted this polish over a peach shade and I think that it looks great.

Fashion Fizz applied really nicely to the nails with the brush provided. The formula of this glitter polish was just perfect-it wasn't too thick or too thin. I really love how smoothly MAC glitter polishes dry. They are also really hard wearing which is ideal if you want to wear your polish for one week at a time.

I think this is a really unique polish which I definitely recommend if you would like to try something a little different.

Archived: Topshop's Dreamlike Glitter Polish

I love a bit of glitter all year round so I obviously love heaps of sparkle during the festive season. Topshop's Dreamlike Glitter is a gorgeous polish with an awesome combination of silver, lilac and turquoise glitter. I painted this polish over Topshop's Filament Polish. Dreamlike consists of tiny specs of glitter, medium glitter particles and large hexagonal glitter particles.

I really love this unique combination of glitter and there are also hints of holographic sparkle which is great. I also love how smoothly Topshop's glitter polish applies. It's hard wearing and lasts well on your nails.

What do you guys think of this glitter polish? Have you tried any of Topshop's glitter polish?

Archived: Topshop's Sweet Treat Glitter Polish

Topshop's Sweet Treat Glitter Polish is another spectacular (yes I just used the word spectacular) polish which has made me even more addicted to their polish than before.

This polish consists of turquoise, yellow gold and rose gold glitter particles which I think is a very unique combination. These colours work so well together.

The formula, as always, was fantastic. The polish applied beautifully to the nails and the brush dispersed the glitter fairly evenly. This polish dried really quickly and was extremely hard wearing.

Again, I can't rave about Topshop polish enough. I feel like I am turning into their number one fan. 

I highly recommend this polish-it's so cool!

What do you guys think of Topshop's Sweet Treat Glitter Polish?  Do you like the mix of colours of glitter? I would love to hear from you!

Archived: Models Own's Paradise Garage Disco Pants Polish

Models Own's Paradise Garage Disco Pants Polish is a gorgeous metallic emerald green polish. This polish looks so amazing once on your nails-it's just beautiful!

The formula is AMAZING. Models Own have done incredibly well at producing a well pigmented, gorgeous, metallic formula. It is the perfect consistency. You only need one coat of this polish for totally covered and opaque nails. It really is that good.

I highly recommend this polish! It is definitely worth buying especially for the festive season.

What do you think about Models Own's Paradise Garage Disco Pants Polish? Have you tried it?

Archived: MAC's Special Potion Glitter Polish

 MAC's Special Potion Glitter Polish is probably one of my favourite polishes at the moment. It is such a unique purple and gold glitter polish which actually goes really nicely with blue polish. I have painted Special Potion over black polish and have posted one photo using flash and one photo in natural light.

Special Potion is a full coverage glitter and it paints on so smoothly with its great brush. The polish formula is just perfect-it's not too thick or too thin. I only used one coat of this polish and it looks amazing. It dries quickly and is extremely hard wearing so I haven't had any chipped nails which is great.

I love this polish so much I hate having to clean it off. I highly recommend this polish and think the quality is great. Definitely one to rave about!

Archived: Color Club's Eternal Beauty Holographic Nail Polish

Purple is one of my favourite colours so I was super happy to see that Color Club have an amazing purple holographic polish called Eternal Beauty. It is so gorgeous and looks so cool with glitter polish which I love.

Eternal Beauty has an awesomely smooth formula which applies so beautifully to the nails. It is highly pigmented but I would still recommend using two coats of polish. The brush is great at applying the polish. This polish dries really quickly which is brilliant. I found that this polish was super hard wearing and lasted really well for a week without chipping.

This is such a cool polish with a great formula and I highly recommend it!

Archived: MAC's #Obsessed Glitter Polish

Oh my goodness! MAC's #Obsessed glitter polish is so unique. I think it is one of my favourite polishes at the moment. It has a pink/purple glitter base with hints of gold and also has multicoloured glitter running through it. It sounds like a weird combination of colours but it really does look awesome.

#Obsessed is a full coverage glitter posh but I have painted it over black polish just to give it a little extra edge. One coat of this polish and your nails look great. The formula is perfect-it's not too watery and it's not too dry. It also dries really quickly and is super hard wearing. I'm such a fan of this polish now. I have also worn it over purple polish and it looks great.

I would highly recommend #Obsessed to anyone who loves a good glitter polish. I have been very impressed with it.

Archived: Topshop's Wonderland Nail Polish

Topshop's Wonderland nail polish is absolutely beautiful. From its awesome bright pink shade to its gorgeous formula it is just wonderful. I cannot express how much I love Topshop nail polish.  They have the most unique shades and are such excellent quality.

Wonderland glided onto the nails amazingly smoothly as the formula is first class and the brush is great. It is highly pigmented and totally opaque within two coats of polish. It dries really quickly and is super long lasting. It is a total winner in my eyes.

I would highly recommend Topshop's Wonderland polish and if you have never tried any of Topshop's polishes they are definitely worth trying.

Archived: MAC's Quick Million Glitter Polish

MAC's Quick Million Glitter Polish is such a beautiful polish. I am actually siting staring at my nails as I type this because I am wearing it right now. It is a fine yellow gold glitter with medium and large hexagonal rose gold glitter particles throughout it. It goes amazingly well with pink nail polish.

Quick Million is an absolute dream to apply as the formula and glitter glides onto the nails perfectly. It is a full coverage glitter and it's just the right consistency. It is also super smooth to the touch once it is dry. An added bonus is that it dries fairly quickly and is also pretty hard wearing. 

I am so excited that this MAC polish is so great. I will definitely be purchasing more MAC glitter nail polishes in the future.

Archived: Color Club's Angel Kiss Holographic Polish

Color Club have totally won my heart with this gorgeous green holographic polish called Angel Kiss. I still can't get over how amazingly holographic these polishes are and I love this green one.

Angel Kiss has a beautiful smooth formula which applies really nicely to the nails. It is so pigmented that you might be able to get away with one coat of this polish but I would recommend using two coats. I found that this polish dried fairly quickly and the brush was great for applying the polish. It is just such a stunning polish in many ways.

Archived: MAC's Sparkle Dust Glitter Polish

MAC's Sparkle Dust Glitter Polish is really cool and unusual. It is made up of strands of blue, white and dark blue/black matte and sparkly glitter.

I have painted one coat of this polish over Topshop's Wonderland Pink Polish so that the glitter polish would stand out well. Plus I think that pink and blue polishes go so well together.

The formula of this polish was really nice and all I had to do was to strategically place some strands of the glitter where I needed it to go. It dried fairly quickly and smoothly which is brilliant.

What do you guys think of MAC's Sparkle Dust Glitter Polish? Do you own this polish? Do you guys have a favourite MAC polish? I love reading your comments!

Archived: Color Club's Blue Heaven Holographic Nail Polish

The only way I can describe Color Club's Holographic Polishes is with the word WOW! This polish is called Blue Heaven and it is an amazing silver holographic polish with a hint of blue. It's just so so cool.

As you can see from the photo this polish is amazingly holographic when the light shines on it. I have lusted after proper holographic nail polish for such a long time so I am so happy with this awesome polish.

The formula of this polish is excellent and it is really highly pigmented. You could probably get away with one coat of this polish as it's so opaque but I think I would recommend two coats. It dries really quickly and lasts a long time on my nails.

I am seriously impressed with this polish. It is everything that I hoped it would be. I can't stop staring at my nails.

Topshop's Sweet & Elite Polish is a lovely pink shimmery, pearlised polish with a hint of lilac.

This polish looks great on the nails and the formula is just amazing. It is super smooth to apply and paints on effortlessly with the perfect brush provided. Two coats of this polish is all you need for streak free nails. It dries really quickly too and is very hard wearing which is great.

I can't wait to wear this polish with some lovely glitter on top of it. I would highly recommend this polish and all of Topshop's nail polish.

Have you tried this polish? What do you think about it? Are you a fan of Topshop polishes?

Archived: Topshop's Silver Spoon Nail Polish

I really like Topshop's Silver Spoon polish because it is a very unusual grey/lilac/silver pearlised polish. I don't have any other polish like it. I am loving wearing it with colourful glitter polish at the moment.

This polish has an excellently smooth polish formula which applies effortlessly to the nails. The brush is perfect for applying this beautiful polish and it dries really quickly. It is also really long lasting when worn with a good base and top coat. 

If you are looking for a polish that is a little bit different to what you normally wear I would recommend this one.

What do you think of Topshop's Silver Spoon polish? Would you normally wear this shade of polish?

Archived: Topshop's The Love Below Nail Polish

Topshop's The Love Below Polish is a really awesome mid pink polish with a sheer shimmer through it. I am a bit of a sucker for pink polish.

This Polish was, as expected, really great. Topshop's polish colour pigmentations are always on point so this colour is great. The formula is amazing and glides beautifully on to the nails with the great brush provided. I only applied two coats of polish to achieve opaque nails. This polish dried really quickly and is really long lasting too!

What do you think about this polish? Have you ever tried Topshop nail polish & if you have do you have a favourite shade?

Archived: Topshop's Cryogenic Nail Polish

Wow. Topshop's Cryogenic polish is pretty damn awesome. It's a gorgeous smooth silver polish which looks a bit like silver silk on my nails.

The formula of this polish is fantastic. It applied beautifully and I only used one coat of this polish which I think is absolutely incredible. I adore Topshop's nail polish formula and this just reinforced  my love of it. I find that the polish brush is great at applying the polish. It is also extremely hard wearing.

I highly recommend this stunning polish as it is beautiful and amazing quality.

Archived: Topshop's Bound Nail Polish

Topshop's Bound Polish is an awesome green/blue shimmery metallic shade. I liked the look of it in the bottle but absolutely loved it once it was on my nails.

Topshop's amazing formula means that it's polish glides smoothly on to your nails. The pigmentation of the polish is also fantastic and two coats provides full coverage. You could probably get away with just one coat of this polish is that good.

Have you tried Topshop polish before? What do you think of Topshop's Bound Polish?

Archived: Topshop's Snow Cone Nail Polish

Topshop's Snow Cone Polish is possibly THE most gorgeous polish that I have bought from Topshop so far. 

This amazing turquoise/blue polish looks ten times prettier in real life. I just can't capture how gorgeous it is. It changes when the light hits it and it's shimmer is super sparkly.

This polish needs about three quick coats of polish to look totally opaque but it's worth it. I didn't want to overload my nails with polish which is why I painted them with three moderate coats of polish. The end result is beautiful. 

The brush applied the polish perfectly and the polish dries really quickly too. I wore this polish for a whole week and it lasted without chipping - even after lots of housework!

I adore this polish and I think you might too! I highly recommend it!

What do you think about Topshop's Snow Cone Polish? Have you got any other polishes like this one?

Archived: Topshop's Stars & Stripes Nail Polish

Topshop's Stars & Stripes Polish is an awesome red, white and blue themed polish. It looks like the American flag has burst all over your nails-in a pretty way of course!

This polish is really cool as it has red strands of matte glitter, white specs of matte glitter, blue hexagonal matte glitter particles and large white stars. I have painted this glitter polish over a black base which I think looks great.

Stars & Stripes applied well and I strategically placed the stars onto my nails rather than trying to paint then on. This technique worked well. The polish dried really quickly and I have to say that the corners of the stars weren't too catchy.

This is such a special polish. I've never seen a polish like this before from any other brand. I love that Topshop has once again brought out something different and amazing. I highly recommend trying this polish as it is just awesome.

What do you think about Topshop's Stars & Stripes polish? Have you ever seen a red, white and blue American flag polish before? I would love to heart from you!

Topshop's Sweetie Belle Nail Polish

Topshop's Sweetie Belle is a gorgeous lilac polish with a gold shimmer running through it. This polish can look quite pink in some lights but it is still just as lovely.

Topshop are seriously on top of their polish game right now!

This polish was lovely to apply and the formula was great. I needed three light to medium coats of this polish for full opacity as this Polish was slightly more sheer. The brush as always was fantastic. It dried quickly and as with all of Topshop's polishes was long lasting.

I think this is such a pretty polish! It's such a beautiful polish to have as we leave winter behind.

What do you guys think about Topshop's Sweetie Belle polish? Do you like the shimmer through it?
