Honey Ryder - champaign gold glitter texture. It's a pretty and office-friendly shade which I liked wearing. It applied easily and two coats were enough for full coverage.

Jinx - orange-coral base with gold glitter. The finish is very sparkly and bright, perfect for Summer! Two coats were enough for full coverage and the polish applied very nicely.

Pussy Galore - light baby pink base with fine fuchsia glitter. It's a gorgeous girly shade with blue undertones. Pussy Galore felt smoother to touch than some other Liquid Sands. It had good and easy to apply formula and I needed just two coats for full coverage.

Tiffany Case - aqua blue base with silver glitter. This is my favourite of al the Bond Girls shades, I love how sparkly it is and the bigger silver glitter nicely stands out. I'm wearing two coats that were fully opaque.

Vesper - eggplant purple jelly base with black glitter. The colour is very dark and rich in real life, my pictures don't seem to capture the true beauty of this polish. I've applied to thicker coats for full coverage.

I feel that this collection of Liquid Sand texture polishes have much improved if compared to Mariah Carey collection. The finish is gritty but not too sharp. They all applied easily and were opaque in two coats. The drying time was rather average. The polishes look dry and gritty within 5 minutes but they are not truly hardened so be careful in the next approximately 30 minutes.

The removal is similar to glitters so let them soak properly otherwise the glitter particles stick to the skin. All polishes also look very nice wit topcoat but you'll need at least two thick coats.

Hello lovelies,

hope you're all well! Today I want to show you some more pretty Clinique polishes. Nail polish is range is new to Clinique so I'm sure you'll be curious as to what the colours and formulas are.

"A Different Nail Enamel for Sensitive Skins is formulated to minimise skin sensitivity. It is dermatologist tested, ophthalmologist tested and appropriate for sensitive skins and sensitive eyes. 

The formula is beautifully balanced to maintain a high shine and streak free application. It is quick drying and available in a wide colour variety, including a few of Clinique’s iconic hues and seasonal, trend setting shades."

Red Red Red - tomato red colour with semi-jelly formula. The colour reminds me of Illamasqua Ruthless a lot except it's a bit darker and it has better pigmentation. I'm wearing two coats which were fully opaque. It applied very easily, dried fast and glossy. I have worn it for five days straight and had absolutely no chipping! I was very impressed with that.

Grape Ice - light purple half-jelly. What a pretty and unusual purple! The formula of this polish was nice and easy to apply. It is well-pigmented for jelly-like finish and I needed just two thicker coats for full coverage. The drying time was average without fast-drying topcoat.

70º and sunny - bright yellow creme. This is a perfect yellow for Summer, very happy and fun! The application was a bit tricky with this one because it dried quite fast. I've had to use thicker coats otherwise polish was prone to patching. Two thicker coats were fully opaque and dried nicely smooth. I've applied topcoat.

Happy ♥ - red/coral creme shade. It applied well but the first coat showed all imperfection on the nail. The second coat followed by topcoat smoothed the surfaced perfectly. The drying time was good and polish levelled itself very nicely in the second coat.
