Color Club Poptastic Pastel Neon Collection Swatch & Review

Hi everyone, so I’ve got another collection review for you today. Five shades from Color Club’s Poptastic Pastel Neon collection. I bought five out of the seven, I skipped the blue because I have so many pastel blue polishes in my collection it’s unreal. Then there’s a green one that’s very similar to the other green in the collection (which I have) so there really didn’t seem much point in getting both. 

So the first polish is a yellow cream called ‘Disco’s Not Dead.’

The picture shows three coats over a white base colour. All of my Swatch pictures for this collection show the colours over a white base. I found that layering them over white got a closer colour to the bottle. If you didn’t apply these over a white, you would need four to five coats depending on your application.

This next polish is a peachy colour cream that in some lights looks pink. This is called ‘Hot-hot-hot Pants.’

I found this to be the thinnest polish of the five. It did want to run down the sides of my nails. I found that thinner coats are better, these polishes aren’t the fastest drying polishes ever. My Swatch photo shows three coats.

This is a classic pink cream called ‘Feathered Hair Out To There.’

No matter what skin tone you have, these polishes always make your skin look a lot darker than it actually is. Again, this picture shows three coats.

This next polish is my favourite of the collection, it’s a purple cream called ‘Diggin’ The Dancing Queen.’

This had the best formula of all of them, my swatch photo only shows two coats. 

The last polish is called ‘Til’ The Record Stops.’ This is a light mint green cream.

This shows three coats.

Although these polishes are sheer and thin, when built up, they make beautiful looking gradients! Here I used ‘Feathered Hair Out To There’ and ‘Diggin’ The Dancing Queen’ and a glitter topper from Sally Hansen called ‘Ice Pop.’

They also water marble, but used warm water. Because they’re so thin, they spread and dry on the water very quickly. 

So, which is your favourite from the collection? Let me know!

Thank you for reading,

Anne.

O.P.I Glitter Off | Swatch & Review

So, as promised, here is my review for O.P.Is’ Glitter Off base coat. This can be found at most mainstream online shops (eBay, Amazon, Nail Polish Direct, Rainbow Connection ect…) for around £8 – £15. 

I’m going to start by saying that buying this product can be tricky if you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for. If you search ‘peel off base coat,’ this product probably won’t show up. Purely because, this is not listed by O.P.I as a peel off base coat. It is listed as Natural Nail Base Coat (peelable nail polish.) Most of O.P.Is’ base coats are called ‘Natural Nail’ base coats. The only noticeable difference when searching for this product is the cap. Which says ‘Glitter Off.’ So, I would suggest searching ‘O.P.I Natural Nail Base Coat,’ this should give you the best results. 

Anyway, here is my swatch video. 👇

Pretty impressive right? 

I also tried this peel off base coat with glitter on for 24 hours and, just like in the video, there was no chipping or lifting anywhere. 

Application:

The application with this product is good, it is on the thinner side and will easily flood your cuticles if too much is applied to the nail at once. The brush is great, unlike most polish brushes, this is short. The bristles are short and a decent width so the three stroke technique can certainly be used. 

Drying:

This base coat is glue based, so it goes on white and streaky, but dries clear. It dries a little matte, and very smooth. It does take about 4 – 5 minutes to dry. Which, in my books, isn’t too bad.

Wear:

As said above and in the video, this is very durable. I washed up and took showers without anything chipping or lifting. With both glitter and ordinary nail polish.

Removal:

The removal is very easy. As you saw in the video, I just used an orange wood stick (wooden cuticle pusher) and started from the cuticle to the tip. I had to push quite hard to get it to lift at first, but then it came off in two clean pieces and left no trace. I have had them come off in once piece to.

All in all, this is my new favourite base coat. I don’t like using nail polish remover so this was the answer to my prayers. 

This peel off base coat gets a 4 out of 5 from me.

I hope you enjoyed my swatch and review blog. As always, if you have any enquiries, you can email me at aeaf1999@gmail.com.

Models Own – Obsidian | Swatch & Review

Hi everyone, another nail polish review blog for you today. 

I’m going to start off by saying that this is one of my all time favourites. It’s a black jelly base with silver glitter and holographic hexes. Here’s my swatch video. 👇

So, it’s a two coater. Which is good. It kind of comes out grey on the first coat, but the colour deepens on the second coat. You get a decent amount of glitter on the nail but it does take a bit of manipulation to disperse those holo hexes evenly. It is quite a thick polish, but it isn’t the type of formula that works with thin coats. I had to apply two relatively thick coats because the colour just doesn’t transfer to your nail, you get a tiny bit of streakage. (I don’t know if that’s a word but it is now. 😝) So thicker coats definitely works best, that’s probably why I only needed two. 

Like a lot of glitter polishes, it does dry matte and dull. But a thick coat of top coat works wonders. It really brings out that shine. 

This polish gets a 3 out of 5 from me.

Models Own – Sardonyx | Swatch & Review

Hi everyone, I have a nail polish swatch and review for you today. First of all, watch the video below to see how it applies and dries! 

So, it takes three coats to become completely opaque, but, if you’re not picky about coverage like I am, you could probably get away with two. 

On the first coat, it looks more of a pink colour. But the colour does deepen on the next coat. It isn’t one of those glitter polishes that requires manipulation to disperse the glitter evenly, you get a good amount of glitter with every stroke. The downside to this polish is that it dries very matte and dull. You will need a thick coat of top coat to sort this. However, once the top coat is on, it has a stunning colour. It’s relatively easy to apply, it is on the thicker side but it’s not gloopy at all. You don’t get brush strokes or streaks. Because it is a glitter polish, it is difficult to remove. But with a decent peel off base coat, it shouldn’t be a problem. 

Isnt it stunning? It’s a very classy looking colour. 

This polish gets a 3 out of 5 from me. 

I hope you enjoyed this nail polish review! If you have any questions or enquiries, comment or email me at aeaf1999@gmail.com. 

Thank you for reading,

Sinful Colors – Pink Forever | Swatch & Review Video

Here is the swatch and review video for Pink Forever by Sinful Colors. I love the colour, but it does need three coats to become even. On the first coat, it’s not sheer at all, but it is very streaky. On the second coat, I still had a couple of light patches so I decided to do a third. But if you apply a thicker second coat, two will be fine. The third coat was still streaky but a good quality top coat sorted this. This gets a 3 out of 5 from me. 
Thank you!

China Glaze – Bring On The Bubbly | Swatch & Review Video

The third and final polish from the China Glaze Ring In The New Year 2015 trio is Bring On The Bubbly! I love this polish as a topper. Though, if you want to use this as a base colour, I would definitely recommend sponging it on. In the video I show you 4 coats and you can still see my nail. I’ve really enjoying swatching this collection. 

China Glaze – Bring On The Bubbly

The video for the last polish in the Ring In The New Year trio will be up tonight! Bring On The Bubbly! This can be used as a topper for the other two polishes in he collection, or on its own. In the video, I will show you how this can be used on its own or as a topper. #Nail #Nails #Nailart #Nailpolish #Nailvarnish #ChinaGlaze #RingInTheNewYear #Gold #Swatch #Review #Nailpolishreview #Swatchandreview #BringOnTheBubbly #Goldglitternailpolish

China Glaze – Better Not Pout – Swatch & Review Video

Here it is! The swatch video for Better Not Pout by China Glaze from the Ring In The New Year trio.
I adore this colour! It has amazing coverage and an amazing finish. It’s fairly easy to apply, though it is on the thinner side so if you have a bit too much on the brush, it will run down the sides of your nail. It is completely opaque in two coats and dries relatively quickly. When it’s dry, it feels like it already has top coat on it. It feels incredibly smooth. 

Thank you for watching and reading!

China Glaze – Son Of A Nutcracker – Swatch & Review Video

​Here it is! The swatch and review video for Son Of A Nutcracker from China Glazes’ Ring In The New Year 2015 collection. This is one of my favourite polishes of all time, the application is great, the coverage is great and the colour is amazing! Thing only thing I would change, is the brush size, it is a little too thin for my liking. This gets a 4 out of 5 from me!

Sinful Colors – Let’s Meet – Nail Polish Review

This is my nail polish review for Let’s Meet by Sinful Colors. I like the colour, but the formula is horrible to work with. I do like Sinful Colors but this particular polish disappointed me. 

It’s thick and gloopy but will still run down the side of your nail and flood your cuticle. Too much on the brush and it goes everywhere, too little on the brush and it barely covers the nail. It’s very patchy and the nail line is very apparent on the first coat. 

On the second coat, the colour becomes very vibrant. It does cover completely in two coats, which doesn’t bother me, but if you prefer to do thin coats, you will end up needing a third. 

All in all I like the colour, and it feels like it has a top coat on when it dries. It does have a nice finish. But the formula really isn’t something I like to work with. 

This gets a two out of five from me.
