Marks & Spencer Metallic Pink Fizz

Another one from the new M&S range. Today we have a nice pink metallic one.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. Can you believe that is one coat! Just one! It's very, very shiny too and the glitter is nice. Both the lid and brush are really good making it easy to paint the nails. Lasted really well.

Marks & Spencer Textured Green

Marks & Spencer have just released a new collection of Texture, Metallic and Glitter polishes. I spied these in store and couldn't resist getting a few. First up is a texture!
This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. This polish has an excellent brush and the lid is really easy to hold. I think it's a gorgeous colour, a subtle green with a little sparkle. Lasted really well.

Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Lick-O-Rich

So this is the last of the first set of Sugar Coat polishes.
This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly quick drying. It's a nice black texture polish. Quite like this one too. Lasted okay but did have a little bit of tip wear with this one.

My Personal Rating = 8/10 really like this one too

Final thoughts on the collection
Most of them were good quality, the only one that wasn't was Sour Apple. My 2 clear favourites are Sugar Fix (white) and Sweetie (yellow). My least favourite was Cherry Drop (red). All in all I'd say this has been a good series and if you like textures then I recommend these :-)

Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Cotton Candies

So this is the second last one in this range. And I had to cut my nails *sob sob* as I was back at work and needed them shorter.
This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying. It certainly is a lot better quality than the previous one! It's a lovely bright pink, very bold. Lasted really well.

Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Sour Apple

Next from the Sugar Coat range...
This is okay to use and okay to apply. The formula on this one is quite runny compared to the others. Maybe I got a dud bottle? The first coat is very streaky and I used a thick one for the second coat. It also seemed a little slower drying too, even on the first coat! Bad bottle. BUT it's a lovely mint green colour and it lasted well.

Rating
Easy to use = 6/10
Application = 6/10
Drying time = 7/10
Lasted well = 8/10
Coats = 2
Finish = texture
Removal = easy used the foil
Overall = 6/10
Purchased from = Poundland

My Personal Rating = 8/10 despite all the negatives, I still really like the colour

Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Razzleberry

I should have posted this a few days back, but I've been really tired as I have just gone back to work after a short holiday!

This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly quick drying. It's a gorgeous blue. The texture part looks kinda glittery in the pictures but it isn't really. This one was quite bobbley, I think that's maybe why it looks glittery. Lasted really well.

Rating
Easy to use = 8/10
Application = 8/10
Drying time = 8/10
Lasted well = 8/10
Coats = 2
Finish = texture
Removal = easy used tin foil, noticed slight staining upon removal
Overall = 8/10
Purchased from = Poundland

My Personal Rating = 8/10 a gorgeous blue texture polish, what is there not to like ;-)

Sally Hansen Sugar Coat Sweetie

Up next from the Sugar Coat Collection is Sweetie.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and fairly quick drying. It was quite streaky on the first coat and on the second there were still a few bald spots so ended up with 3 coats! It's a nice yellow texture polish that looks like lemon sherbet, so wanted to lick my nails! (okay I didn't really) Lasted well.

Rating
Easy to use = 8/10
Application = 8/10
Drying time = 7/10 probably because it was 3 coats
Lasted well = 8/10
Coats = 3
Finish = texture
Removal = easy with tin foils
Overall = 8/10
Purchased from = Poundland

My Personal Rating = 8/10 I like this yellow a lot!
