Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Sugar Fix

This the second of the Sugar Coat polishes.



Slightly wonky label!




This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. The first coat is quite streaky but the second is fine. I wasn't sure about it at first but it really grew on me and I really like it. It's so pretty. Kinda reminds me of snow and winter and Christmas. Lasted really well.

Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Bubble Plum

I managed to get the first set of Sugar Coat polishes from the pound shop (minus the pink but picked it up at another cheap shop). I was so pleased and have been working my way through them! First up is Bubble Plum.




This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. The brush is AMAZING! The lid is really comfortable to hold and it is very easy to paint the nails. It's a pretty light purple colour and textured! Lasted well. That is one coat, but I think 2 would have been better.

Sally Hansen Feeling Saucy




This is okay to use and okay to apply. The brush is a bit fiddly but was okay to use in the end. It's okay drying. It's a gorgeous colour. Lasted okay but did show some signs of tip wear on one hand. Upon removal I noticed slight staining as well.

Primark Loveable Luxuries Purple Glitter

This is the last one of the set! I put it on top of the black!





This is easy to use, easy to apply and okay drying. I certainly felt the lid and brush was much easier to use by the 4th polish! You get really good coverage for one coat. I think it looks nice on top of the black! Lasted okay.

Primark Loveable Luxuries Black

This is the third colour of the set.





This is okay to use and okay to apply. Definitely getting better using this type of lid and brush. Make sure you have plenty on the brush as it's quite small. Seemed to be quite slow drying, but quicker than the previous two colours. It's a regular black polish. Noticed slight tip wear after a while, no chipping tho.

Primark Loveable Luxuries Bronzey Gold

This is the second wee polish from the set.





This is okay to use and okay to apply. I think I was getting used to the lid and brush. Make sure you have plenty polish on the brush as it's small. This one is also quite smelly and slow drying. Not smelly enough to give me a headache tho! I think it's a pretty colour kinda bronze and gold like. Lasted well.

Primark Loveable Luxuries Red

I got this little set as a Christmas Present from one of my friends.





This is okay to use and okay to apply. The lid is tricky to hold at first and the brush is quite wee, so make sure you have plenty on it. It's quite slow drying and a bit smelly too. It's a pretty red that lasted okay.

W7 Rocket

I popped this on top of the last post.




This is easy to use, easy to apply and slow drying. It looks good as a top coat. It has little holographic particles which I tried to capture, you can just about make them out! It has silver glitter and little blue feathers too. Lasted well.

L'Oreal The Queen's Might

HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone! I hope your new year was better than mine. I wasn't feeling great and ended up in bed for most of the 31st and 1st :-( I'm better now thankfully.




This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly quick drying. It's a nice sorta red/pink colour, raspberry like I guess. It lasted okay but had slight tip wear.
