This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (3 minutes a coat). The brush is really good and makes it easy to paint the nails with. I think it is a strange polish but interesting and I like it. I don't normally like browns, but the glitter makes it appealing. Lasted well.

Flormar Pink Pearl

This is yet another Holiday Haul, Amsterdam this time.

This is okay to use, okay to apply and slowing drying (7-8 minutes a coat). The brush is good but thin and the polish is very brush-strokey, as can been seen! I think it is a delicate colour and not really for me, I don't know why I bought it! Lasted well.
