Orly Neon Heat

I'd like to thank everyone for their kind comments about my long nails, but I had an accident. I woke up one morning and one of my nails was nearly ripped off. So I had to cut them, really short :-(
This is what it looked like after I managed to fix it:
So I'll have short nails for the time being!

On with the post :-)

This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (4 minutes a coat). It's a pretty bright neon pink. I like it a lot. Lasted well.

OPI Down To The Core-al

This is okay to, okay to apply and quick drying (1 minute a coat). It's a mini so quite tricky to use the brush, as it is quite small. So make sure you have plenty of polish on the brush for good coverage. It's quite a nice bright neon colour and I like the finish. Lasted well.

China Glaze In The Rough

This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (4 minutes a coat). The formula is quite runny but it's easy to use. It's a limey green textured polish. I quite like it, I think it's one for the die-hard textures fan! Lasted well.

Color Club Under Your Spell

This is easy to use, easy to apply and kinda slow drying for a texture (5 minutes a coat). It's a pretty texture with lovely purple glitters. I'd say the base is purple with an outstanding gold shimmer! I think it's quite interesting and unusual. Lasted well.

Revlon Topaz

This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (3-4 minutes a coat). It's a pretty iridescent polish that shifts from green to blue. The shift isn't too bad, but I wish it was stronger! Lasted well.

Dance Legend So Much Better

This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (4-5 minutes a coat). It's another of the glow in the dark polishes! It's a really pretty green with a nice shimmer! How cool does it look in the dark! It was quite easy to capture as well. Lasted well.

Ciate Sweet Pea

Another episode from the Ciate Nightmare ;-)

This is really hard to use and really hard to apply. Like the others before it, this one is really streaky too. On the up side, it is really quick drying (less than 30 seconds a coat). It's a mini bottle and hard to keep brush stroke to a minimum, which I highly recommend for this polish. And make sure you have plenty on the brush too. It did last well.
