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.

Hello lovelies,

Today I have here the new I Love Nail Polish Mutagen that is part of the Ultra Chrome collection and what a shade!

Mutagen - green multi chrome metallic. The base colour is rich green that changes into dark green, gold, brown-green, blue and purple. When I put my nail into a bowl of water, the colours were changing into blue, orange and pink. I've applied one coat of Mutagen over black but two coats by themselves are opaque. The colour is slightly streaky an dries fast.
