Hello lovelies,

 

Ready for more Autumn colours? Well this is my take on Zoya Entice collection. The second half, Ignite will come soon. The Entice collection consists of 5 creme shade one slightly shimmery shade. They are a mixture of cool and warm shades and some of them will be great not only for Autumn but for Winter season too.

Nyssa - light brown creme. Nyssa is like a cross between milk chocolate and caramel. The formula was easy to apply but slightly less pigmented. I needed two thicker coats for good coverage. It dried fast and glossy.

Claire - dark burgundy creme. The colour is beautifully rich and smooth and I love the red undertone in it. The formula was good to apply, a bit streaky in the first coat but the second coat sorted everything out. It dried fast and glossy.

Margo - medium plum purple creme. It's a bit warmer than classic blue-based plum purple which makes it very appealing to me. It applied nicely and two coats provided full coverage. It also dried fast and glossy.

Veronica - red-based berry creme. I love this colour, so up my street! It's got great pigmentation so two thin coats were perfect. I didn't have any problems with application and it dried fast.

Geneviev - smoky grey creme with satin grey finish. I think Geneviev is kind of an ugly duckling of this collection. I wouldn't 'pick it out of a crowd' but it transforms into a very chic colour on nails. It dries very fast so I had to work fast to avoid patching. It's also slightly less pigmented so I needed two thick coats.

Ryan - navy blue creme. Another stunning shade I love! Ryan is rich, deep blue, absolutely perfect for those sailor summer designs. It applied very nicely and was also well pigmented. All I needed were two thin coats for full coverage.

Entice is a great collection full of colours perfect for the upcoming seasons. They all had pretty good formula - some a bit better than others. My absolute favourites must be Veronica and Ryan but the others are beautiful too.

 

This collection is available now directly from Zoya.com for $9 USD each, or $54 for the whole collection or at at The Nail & Beauty Link (UK) and at Nail Polish Direct (UK).

 

Stay tuned for the second half of the collection! Hope you've enjoy the swatches and have a lovely weekend. Lucie x

Hello lovelies,

 

I'm very happy to say that Barry M has released a new Gelly collection for Autumn/Winter season and I have swatches! It consists of six new shades in mostly Autumn colours and is available right now.

 

So without further ado let's have a look at them!

Mustard - mustard or ochre (if you wish) yellow creme. When else to wear mustard yellow other than in the Autumn, right? Two coats were fully opaque and the formula was easy to apply. Not like some other older Gelly shades, this one didn't dry too fast so I didn't experience any patching. I'm wearing a coat of topcoat.

Cardamom - moss green creme. Cardamom reminds me of the fading colour of the leaves just before they turn yellow...very interesting. It's a shame it's didn't suit my skin tone. The formula was easy to apply and all I needed were two coats for full coverage. The polish dried fast and glossy but I still applied topcoat.

Chai - medium grey creme. Chai is definitely a colour for the Winter season and it will also be perfect for nail art. It applied well and I needed just two coats. As all the other polish, it dried fast and glossy and I applied topcoat as well.

Paprika - rusty brown creme. This is not true paprika colour but it's quite close so I'll take it ;) I'm wearing two coats and topcoat. The formula was good to apply and fast drying.

Chilli - dark red creme with brown undertones. Such a gorgeous and rich colour, one of my favourites in this collection! It applied nicely and pigmentation was good too. I'm wearing just two regular coats and no topcoat with this one.

Cocoa - dark chocolate/cocoa brown creme. Wow, this brown is super dark and rich! Two regular coats were fully opaque and Cocoa dried very glossy. It went on very nicely as well.

I think this collection was much needed in the Barry M Gelly line. The Autumn/Winter shades are perfect and I can't wait to so some nail art with them! My absolute favourites are Chilli, Chai and Mustard. They all had easy-flowing and fast-drying formula and all were opaque in two coats. Even though they dried glossy I usually added topcoat as it prolongs the wear and protects against chipping.

 

Barry M polishes are available at Barry M website, in Superdrug and Boots.

 

Hope you like this collection, I know I do ;) Let me know what you think in the comments! Have a nice day! Lucie x
