Hello lovelies,

 

Hope you're all well, at least better than me! I woke up yesterday with throat on fire and today I sound like Frank Sinatra lol. That serves me right for going to a shopping mall on Saturday :D Anyway today I have here a review of piCture pOlish Vegas which I got for the Blog Fest 2013.

 

Vegas - bright red jelly base with gold flakes. The red base leaning towards orange undertones but the shade still feels warm. The gold flakes/particles add depth and liven up the polish, they look very pretty. The formula was easy to apply and fast drying and was also opaque in two coats. I've applied topcoat.

Hello lovelies,

 

I've gotten a chance to review two Rainbow Connection store exclusive polishes. They are both from quite well-known indie brands - Polish Addict and Smitten Polish.

Rainbow Connection Exclusives: Polish Addict Rainbow Connection and Smitten Polish Birds of Paradise

 


Polish Addict Rainbow Connection - grey creme base filled with multi-coloured glitter. The grey base is quite warm with purple undertones and the rainbow colour glitter in it looks so much fun! The formula was good and easy to apply with the right amount of glitter. The polish dried fast but slightly gritty so I needed thick layer of topcoat (I've used Seche Vite).

Smitten Polish Birds of Paradise - red orange jelly base with gold, white, rose pink glitter. The jelly base is very sheer and it would take at least three thick coats to build up good coverage so I have layered it over similar shade, Barielle Orange Parfait. It applied well and I was also happy with the amount of glitter. Again, I needed a thicker layer of topcoat.
