Nail Polish Haul!

1. Revlon - 'Dreamer' / 2. Revlon - 'Watermelon Fizz' / 3. Miss Sporty - Nameless Blue Polish / 4. Barry M - 'Teal' / 5. Max Factor - 'Fantasy Fire' /

I'm the biggest sucker for nail varnish, clearly. I would have bought more but my common sense (and my shoddy bank balance) stopped me. I have a forever expanding nail polish collection which is currently overflowing out of the already large box in my cupboard.. but a couple more wont hurt. So far i've only had chance to try two polishes (apologies for the lack of photographs):

Revlon 'Watermelon Fizz': This is a new shade from their 'scented collection' and i bought it purely for the glitteryness of it. I didn't believe much into the 'scented' claim however, once dry it actually does smell like watermelons! Very pigmented from the first stroke (i only needed two coats), as with all Revlon polishes. They're a bit pricier at £6.49 but for the quality of the polish they're fabulous.

MaxFactor 'Fantasy Fire': Looks amazing, however it takes about 6 coats for it to resemble anything like the colour in the bottle! It's very sheer. That said, once it's layered up it looks amazing and next time i will probably layer it over a purple polish - especially if i'm in a rush! The colour is beautiful with fine shimmers of fuschia and gold flecks, and i was pretty impressed with it's staying power as it lasted about 3 days with almost no chips whatsoever.

Still trying to get my hands on the new Beetlejuice collection by Models Own but they're out of stock everywhere! 
What are your favourite polishes at the momento?

  10. I really wish Revlon could invent a nailpolish that smells nice when you APPLY it. My boyfriend wouldn't exile me come manicure time!

    That's interesting that you only needed two coats for the Revlon polish. I needed 3 for Icy Grape from the same collection. Perhaps the glitters have better coverage.

    Have a swell ole' day Beth!

  15. I bought that Miss Sporty nail polish a couple of days ago, it is really nice on the nails! It looks identical to the colour on the bottle. It really annoys me that they have no shade names :( x x

  16. I did so many posts on my blog and instagram, I wanted Fantasy Fire for agges but every where had sold out!! When i got it I was dissapointed also with how many coats you have to apply before getting the full effect! But when you do it's a beautiful colour! Also the Revlon polishes you got look amazing, I really want to try these! xoxo

  17. Love the shades of these, I've always been really by tempted by Revlon nail polishes but the price always puts me off for a "drugstore" brand. I think you've convinced me to try them now though ;) X
