Orly - Boho Bonnet

 



This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (3-4 minutes a coat). It is a nice enough grey. I do fancy a grey from time to time! It lasted well and is good quality.

China Glaze - Don't Let The Dead Bite

This is one from a Hallowe'en range a while ago! Finally getting around to wearing it!!!



This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (3-4 minutes a coat). It is a lovely pink based polish with red glitters. It is something a bit different and cool! Sadly didn't last so well as some of the glitters near the end of the nail chipped off, so wear a top coat with it!

China Glaze - OMG

 

Last photo in the sunshine, all others indoors.


This is okay to use, okay to apply and good drying (1-2 minutes a coat). It is prone of bald patches so careful application is required. It is an amazing silver holo, no wonder it is called OMG!! It lasted really well too! Amazing!

This is easy to use, easy to apply and slow drying (6-7 minutes a coat). It is a gorgeous raspberry holo and looks amazing in the sunshine! And pretty good indoors too! Lasted really well.

Dance Legend - Termo Shine 166


This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying (4-5 minutes a coat). It is a thermal polish that changed from peach to brown and it has a slight shimmer. The transition isn't as good as the others I've had from this range, but it is okay. Lasted really well and for a brown, I kinda like it!

China Glaze - DV8

First and last photo indoor lighting, rest in the sunshine.

This is okay to use, okay to apply and fast drying (less than a minute a coat). It is very prone to dragging and bald spots so make sure there is plenty polish on the brush as it is a mini and carefully apply! This is a gorgeous holo, looks different in both lighting I think. I don't think it is as intense as the previous in the set. This one didn't last too well and had some staining upon removal :-|

Color Club - Otherworldly

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (1-2 minutes a coat). It dries matte and the glitters aren't at all sparkly like in the bottle! Despite this, I do still like it. It looks cool and it lasted really well. It also did not stain!
