W7 Metallic Jupiter


This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly quick drying. I'd say it's black like with blue, pink and purple glitter. It's slightly iridescent as you can see from the above pic! Lasted well.

Stargazer 101 Neon Green

Hehe another neon Stargazer! This is a cracker.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. It's quite old but still in good nick. It's a gorgeous neon green that's really eye catching. Lasted well and loved it back then and still love it!

17 Seventeen Rock Hard Nail Effects Red

I've been slacking in the blogging lately, well slacking in the general 'going on the PC' of late! Due to a number of reasons that I'll not bother going into! On with the nails, this is one of the textured nail polishes that I picked up from Boots the other week there. It's red!

This is easy to use, easy to apply and mega quick drying! I'd say it's slightly gritty compared to the OPI Liquid Sands nail polish. It's a lovely red and it lasted well. Yah!

Rimmel Shirley Temple

Decided to try another of the newish Rimmel polishes.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. The brush is excellent and is a breeze to paint the nails with. It is an orange colour with a golden shimmer, looks awesome. Really liked this and it lasted well.

Avon Make My Day

This is the second of the new Avon polishes that I purchased. I didn't fancy the other two.
When I first got this I was pretty disappointed. Thought I'd give it a try and see how it looked on the nails.

It's easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying. I'd say it's a bog standard red that looks slightly orange in certain lights, mainly daylight. It lasted well and it did grow on me after my initial disappointment.

Avon Serene

This is one of the newish Avon polishes that I got a few weeks back from the Avon Lady!

This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly quick drying. The first coat is not too bad, slightly streaky but the second is grand. From the brochure I had expected it to look a bit more blue, but in certain lights it does look slightly more blue-ish. I was sitting thinking it looks like something..... then Mr Economy said it's really like China Glaze's For Audrey! Dang that man was right, dug out my bottle and compared them and yup it's a dead ringer. Quite like it! Lasted well.
