L'Oreal Confettis Top Coat

This is the top coat I popped on top of Avon's Mint Ice.




This is okay to use, need to dab it on rather than painting the nails and it was slow drying. I thought it looked awesome on top of the green hehe. It's black and white with tiny specks.You can just about make them out, under the watermark of the last picture, on the middle finger...zoom! Lasted really well.

Rating
Easy to use = 7/10
Application = 7/10
Drying time = 6/10
Lasted well = 8/10
Coats = dabbed on!
Finish = mad particles with very subtle specks
Removal = okay used tin foils but still have to scrape a few bits off!
Purchased from = either Superdrug or Boots, can't remember where but it cost £4.99

My Personal Rating = 7/10 liked it and thought the combo was good :-)

Avon Sweet Sundae

Sadly not Sunday yet! Boo.




This is okay to use, streaky application (but that's expected) and mega quick drying. The first coat was terrible, the 2nd not too bad and the 3rd did the trick! I'd have to say I found this colour rather nice, maybe it was the mood I was in? Sadly chipped a bit.

Avon Color Trend Mint Ice




This is not very easy to use, not very easy to apply and mega quick drying! This 1st coat is very streaky and for the next two I had plenty on the brush for better coverage. It's a springy minty green, I guess the name gives the colour away! Lasted well.

Avon Sugared Peach

Got the three new Avon Color Trend polishes the other week there! First up is the peachy one.




This is okay to use, iffy application and mega quick drying! Like all these pastel type colours, it was very streaky on the first coat, but on the second was fine. For the first coat, I always make that one thin but usually have plenty of polish on the brush for the following coats. Lasted really well.

Rating
Easy to use = 7/10 - brush and lid were fine!
Application = 6/10
Drying time = 9/10 mega fast!
Lasted well = 8/10
Coats = 2
Finish = glossy creme
Removal = so easy
Overall = 7/10
Purchased from = Avon rep for £1.50

My Personal Rating = 7/10 didn't like this at first, but grew on me

Bluecross Snowman Purple Glitter

So this is the glitter that I put on top of the last post.



This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying. I had a few bald patches, so I just dabbed the glitter on and that worked a treat. It's full of purple and blue glitter! Lasted well. It's very lovely and shiny!

Sally Hansen Fairy Teal



This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly quick drying. The brush is really good and lid is comfortable to hold.  Lasted really well and it's pretty!

******* I put a glitter polish on top of this, which will be featured soon. Upon removal (with the tin foil) I noticed this has stained my nails! Not sure if it was to do with the addition of glitter polish or it was this nail polish? Had to buff the stains off with the 4 way buffer!

Angelica Chameleon





This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly slow drying. Oh it's iridescent.... greens, purples and bronzes can be spotted! It's also slightly smelly too. Lasted really well and it looks amazingly awesome.
