I know it’s a little late but something came up in my private life that meant I haven’t had the time to post about the polishes I bought while I was on my summer holiday this year. I picked up 6 Flormar polishes and 1 Sephora polish while I was travelling round Europe, so lets take a look 🙂
Extreme Grape is a gorgeous purple matte that has a perfect finish with 2 coats. It dries super quickly too! I believe that it was around €3.00 but I honestly can’t remember – it was so long ago now!
Elegant Green is another lovely deep autumnal colour. It’s midway between forest green and a dark teal and I love it. This is one of my favourite colours to wear, along with dark purples and reds, in the autumn so I actually picked this one up just in time for the season. It’s a great 2 coater but it did stain the skin around my nails a little as it’s highly pigmented.
Sky Blue is from Flormar’s Jelly Look collection which is meant to have that gel manicure finish of a super shine. It is shiny but it’s not THAT shiny and it definitely needed 3 coats rather than 2 (as shown). It has a similar style brush to the new Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine nail paints which makes it a hell of a lot easier for me to paint my nails as I have quite small nail beds with a very rounded cuticle area so square brushes are no good.
377 – this polish didn’t actually have a name but it’s an orangey-toned red from the classic nail enamel range and it was perfect for the rest of my holiday abroad 🙂 It was a good 2 coater and dried pretty quickly.
Snow White is another of the nail enamels and it has decent coverage as far as whites go. It probably could have done with a 3rd coat but 2 is enough if you’re just using it as a base.
Frog Prince is a mint green that again could’ve done with 3 coats rather than 2 but it’s an okay polish. I do have very similar colours from other brands that are better than this.
Sun, Sea and Fun is gorgeous royal blue Sephora nail polish that I picked up when in Spain – it was €5 I believe. The coverage was okay, I wasn’t wowed by it. The first coat was very streaky and translucent and the second almost evened it out, almost. I can say that it dries relatively quickly.
So there we finally have it: my summer holiday polish purchases!
Stick around for some exciting new Barry M Gellies, NailBox goodies and Poundland polishes 🙂
