Anyone else sick of this miserable weather yet?! I had to cancel my plans today, I couldn’t go on a run and it has forced me to actually sit down and start getting ready for going back to school on Monday! That last part is probably a good thing but I would give anything for another few days off.
Today, I wanted to share a new nail varnish collection that I picked up in Poundland of all places. These gorgeous Revlon nail varnishes usually retail for £6.49 but I got all 5 of these for a fiver! I had seen and admired them in Boots and couldn’t wait to try them out. All of them have a lovely metallic shimmer with fine pieces of glitter and shine different colours in the light.
First up, Aquamarine, one of my favourites. This is a bright turquoise that shines both blue, green and even pink in the light.
Next, Pink Quartz, which is a pinky gold colour and nude enough to wear for work.
Tanzanite is a bright purple with a bronze-gold sheen to it in the light. This shows up a lot brighter than in the bottle and is another really pretty shade.
Topaz was the only shade that needed a third coat but this green shade flashes blue and gold in the light. It’s a really unique colour.
Finally, Cobalt, the darkest shade but another that shows up a lot lighter on the nail than in the bottle. At first I thought this was blue but it shows up purple in some lights too.
I had read some online reviews which complained about these polishes leaving brush strokes but I had no problems with this and they applied beautifully.
After my swatches, I gave myself a pedicure with Tanzanite and a manicure with Pink Quartz, finishing off with two bows and a layer of Seche Vite.
I love this nail range, even more so because I managed to find them for such a great price! I don’t own anything similar to these colours in my collection and they will look lovely worn alone or used in nail art.
Have you tried anything from this range? x
