Flormar Duo 2x Chrome DC03

Another in the Flormar Duo range!





This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying. I'd say it's a kinda orange/browny colour with very subtle purple. It's not really that iridescent, but you can just about make out that purple sometime! Noticed some tip wear after a day but lasted okay otherwise!

Seventeen Crushed Foils Nail Effects Gold

Was in Boots last week and spied some new polish. This is one I bought!



I used it solo and then popped it on top of these following colours~ Index: Rimmel Hot Fever, Middle: Rimmel Black Out, Ring: Avon Decadence and Pinky: Avon Midnight Green. Lol I picked colours I've already posted here, some old!

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. Have plenty on the brush for full coverage. I think it looks okay solo and certainly looks nice on the different colours. Lasted well.

Drying time = 8/10

Finish = matte golden foil shards
Removal = need tin foil to remove - 30 secs of soaking means you need to scrape them off, 2 mins of soaks means they come off easily!
Overall = 8/10
Purchased from = Boots, they had the 3 for 2 offer on

My Personal Rating = 8/10 liked this a lot and it's a bit different!

Body Collection Ruby

This is a polish that Mr Economy talked me into getting. I wasn't too keen on buying it as it is kinda too brown for my liking. But he convinced me! Lol maybe he should have bought it ;-)




This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying. Now in some lights it does look kinda red, which means the name "Ruby" isn't as weird as I first thought! Sadly didn't last long, was prone to scuffing. Mr Economy like it!

W7 Red Deris

I put this on top of Filthy Gorgeous Pulp.





This is easy to use, easy to apply and slow drying. It's also slightly smelly, but not too bad. I think it's nice on the purple and the purple shows the different glitters. Lasted really well.

Angelica Valentines Kiss

Having been impressed with the last Angelica polish I tried, I thought I'd check out their website and see what was on offer - fatal! I bought this and 2 others.




This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying. The brush is really good and the lid is easy to hold. It's a lovely red-pinky colour with glitter sparkles. Lasted really well. Shipping to the UK is £3 but they don't mention that on the site :-s

Asda George 3D Green Glitter Aquarium

I put this on top of the last post!



This is okay to use and okay to apply. It was a bit tricky at first but I got used to the application. You need to go over what you've painted to get full coverage. Okay drying wise. It's a glitter top coat with green and blue glitter. Looks alright on top of the orange! Lasted well.

Marks & Spencer Metallic Electric Purple





This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. The brush is small but really easy to use. It's a pretty colour, not sure I'd exactly call it a 'purple'. It has a subtle golden shimmer to it, you can just about see it in the last picture! Lasted okay, did show some slight tip wear after a day.
