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.

Poundland - Valentine's Day Pink

This is okay to use, okay to apply and okay drying (4-5 minutes a coat). It is very streaky on the first coat and not too bad on the second. I used 2 coats here, but probably 3 might have been better! I would say this isn't great for ridges, as you can still see mine in the photos! Nice enough. Noticed some tip wear but didn't chip.

Kiko - Silver Sand

Another one from the Metal Fusion collection.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (2-3 minutes a coat). It is a orangy brown colour with a silver shimmer. And it is a one coater! I guess it does look a little like a sandy colour! Got to say it lasted very well for one coat! It is not really my colour!

Moyra - Green Light

This is easy to use, easy to apply and good drying (1-2 minutes a coat). It is a gorgeous bright neon textured polish. It is rough but doesn't catch on anything. One for the texture connoisseur I think! Looks like grass to me! Loved it and it lasted well.
