Max Factor Sunny Pink

This is a nice one!

This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly quick drying. The brush is pretty good, but it's small so you need to have a lot on it! It's pink with a pretty gold shimmer, almost iridescent, almost! Nice and it lasted well.

Avon Green Goddess

This polish is pretty cool!
This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. It's absolutely gorgeous and very metallic like I'd say. Very impressed. And it lasted really well too! Couldn't stop looking at my nails lol!

Barry M Atlantic Road

I was very impressed with the OPI Liquid Sand nail polishes, so when Barry M released these I jumped at the chance of buying them. They were on offer which helped as well!
This is easy to use, easy to apply and really slow drying! I was very surprised, because the OPIs were mega quick drying! It is fairly smooth as well. I find these oddly appealing and such a cute baby blue colour. Lasted well.

Rimmel Baby Bellini

I spotted a few new Rimmel polishes when I was in Boots (I think? might have been Superdrug!) and thought they look really nice. Picked them up. This is a lovely purple one that Mr Economy was quite keen on.
This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly quick drying. The loveliness in the 1st bottle pic doesn't really translate to the nail that well sadly. I think this is a dead ringer for W7's Purple Rain and that's not a bad thing as I like it! This lasted really well and it's very pretty!

W7 Blue Tini

I've been really impressed with the W7 polishes that I've blogged so I thought I'd try one of my more recent purchases. Picked this up a few months back. It's well nice!
This is easy to use, easy to apply and really quick drying. I'd say it's a lovely blue with a subtle purple shimmer, that's very obvious in the 1st bottle picture! You can just about make it out in the last nails picture. Really like the colour, Mr Economy reckons I've got a thing for blues! Hehe. Lasted okay.

Sally Hansen Silver Lining

For some reason this one jumped out the drawer!
This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly quick drying on the first few coats but after three slow! It's a gorgeous silver colour with very subtle bits of blue glitter and has a slight pink shimmer to it at certain angles. I really liked this and it lasted well.

Nina Ultra Pro Punki Purple

This polish caused a little bit of disappointment within me! It's easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. It dries matte tho and wasn't aware of that fact when I bought it! Boooo. I wanted a bright shiny, vibrant colour. It's prone to chipping and scuffing so best use a top coat. I should have used one but couldn't be bothered!

Rating
Easy to use = 8/10
Application = 8/10
Drying time = 9/10 mega quick
Lasted well = 6/10 not really
Coats = 2
Finish = mega matte
Removal = easy
Overall = 6.5/10

My Personal Rating = 6/10 might try it with a top coat and see if I like it

Claire's unknown Iridescent Purple

I picked this up a few weeks ago in Claire's Accessories, but it's not got a name! So I christened it Iridescent Purple which pretty much sums it up!
This is easy to use, easy to apply and SLOW drying. It's a combo of purple, browny/bronze and gold. Like it. Lasted well.

My Personal Rating = 7/10 nice enough! Just annoying it's not got a name, or am I missing it?

Rimmel Black Pearl

This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly quick drying. I really like this black! It has a slight shimmery effect that you can make out in the 2nd bottle pic. This didn't really translate to the nail. This is lovely!
