Today I have some new nail polishes from the I Heart Makeup products over at Makeup Revolution – Nail Geek. A while ago MUR very kindly sent me the ‘Magic Collection’ to have a look at, which you can see the swatches for here. I was so impressed I decided to purchase another of the sets – Cool Nails. Once again they cost £5.96 for all 5 polishes – individual polishes cost £1.49.
06 – Peppermint: As the name suggests.. a peppermint colour. 2 coats just about has good enough coverage although some nails could have done with 3 – the formula is a bit on the thin side. Dries well and looks good with both topcoat and matte topcoat.
07 – Dreams: I would describe it as a sky blue. The formula is a bit better and is just about opaque in 2 coats – it could probably used a third on some fingers . It dries quickly too.
08 – Clear Skies. A more periwinkle blue than a sky blue, as it leans slightly purple, but gorgeous all the same. This is a lovely mid ‘blue’ to wear. Opaque in 2 coats and dries quickly once again. The formula is much better than Dreams and Peppermint.
09 – Live Fearless. A gorgeous deep blue thats opaque in just one coat. It doesn’t stain the nail either – bonus. Obviously has a good formula and dries quickly.
10 – Inbetween. A rich, dark teal… one of my favourite colours! Formula is a bit thin but still only takes 2 coats to become opaque. Same as all the others and dries relatively quickly. I think this is my favourite of the collection.
Overall, I’m very impressed with MUR nail polishes considering the price. Don’t forget to check out Makeup Revolution’s site to see the full range of colour options!
