Stargazer - 103 Neon Orange

This is an oldie!

This is okay to use, okay to apply and good drying (3-4 minutes a coat). It is very old and the formula was a tad gloopy. I really need to get a nail polish thinner! It is really nice and bold and looks funky with the UV light, as can be seen in the last photo! Lasted well.

Avon - Surf


This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (3-4 minutes a coat). It is a nice green polish with a shimmer. It is very sheer and is probably better as a topper! It is very lovely and is lasted well.

Next - Mermaid Night

A new brand to my blog today. This is a nail polish from Next.




This is okay to use, okay to apply and decent drying (4-5 minutes a coat). It is a nice deep blue that is slightly iridescent as you can see in the 4th photo - a little purple. The lid is okay to hold and the brush is very good but it is wide. I don't mind wide brushes. Lasted okay.

Barry M - Candy Floss

This is okay to use, okay to apply and decent drying (4-5 minutes a coat). It is streaky on the first coat and not too bad on the second. It is a nice baby pink colour. Lasted really well. Like this a lot.

Collection 2000 - 280

This is one from the old range of Collection 2000 - not exactly sure how old it is?

This is easy to use, easy to apply and decent drying for a old polish (5 minutes a coat). It is a peachy orange colour with a slight shimmer. The bottle says it is frosted - I guess it is. 1 coat would have done but I used 2. Have to say for being a very old polish was very impressed! It lasted well too. These oldies are still available on eBay as job lots or such.

Kiko - Pearly Light Geranium

This is easy to use, easy to apply and great drying (2 minutes a coat). It is a gorgeous orange/red/coral colour with a shimmer. The shimmer does show up better in the bottle, as you can see in the 3rd photo. It is very nice and last okay.
