China Glaze Icicle

Haven't had a China Glaze on in a while and this was the winner of 'lucky dip'. It's a gorgeous silver colour.
Artificial light.



Natural light.


Hmmm shiny!

This is easy to use and easy to apply. The brush is brilliant and it's quick drying! It's a gorgeous silver for sure. Lasted well.

a-england Dragon

Another a-england polish. Thought I'd give this greeny holo one a try. I was hoping the sun would be out, but no such luck.


Natural light.

Artificial light.




This is easy to use and easy to apply. The brush is very good and it's quick drying. I found my bottle to be quite thick formula but it handled well. It's got a subtle holo effect that would have looked better if the sun was out! Lasted well.

Chanel Quartz

Another lovely Chanel this time and an almost brown *gasp*.


All natural light.




This is easy to use and easy to apply. Excellent brush. It's very quick drying. I'm quite surprised how this looks on the nail, pretty and lovely. I really don't like brown polishes but I think this one could be a winner! It's quite sparkly in certain light. Lasted very well too.

Illamasqua Rare

This is another bright one! Yellow-tastic.

Both in natural light.

Bright or what! This is hard to use because it's quite streaky on application! It dried almost matte certainly not glossy. It was fairly slow drying which I hadn't noticed in the Illamasqua polishes before. But it's gorgeous and lasted well and looks awesome in sunshine.

Deborah Lippmann Party Girl

Another of those Run The World (Girls) polishes. This is a coral type colour.


All natural light.





This is easy to use and easy to apply. It's matte for sure and that means quick drying! The brush is smaller than standard Lippmann's but it's easy to use. It's lovely :-)

Color Club Poptastic

Another bright colour for today's post. A lovely pinky one this time from Color Club.


All natural light.


Isn't it pretty :-) Pity the sun wasn't out that day or any day lol!

This is easy to use, easy to apply and the brush is super. It's fairly quick drying, not bad at all. It certainly lasted well too. Lovely bright neon pink colour, just what we need for summer.

OPI Shatter the Scales

This is one I've been after since it got released. Managed to finally get it! I popped it on top of Nasty Girl. Nice combo.



With flash.
All natural light.





This is easy to use, easy to apply and the brush is good. It's quick drying and lasted not bad for a shatter. Looks amazing on the purple I think. Dark green and purple are a good combination for sure!
