This week I received an awesome, albeit late present from my brother who is currently working in Canada. I had a feeling I knew what the gift was as I had been asked for a wishlist from Sephora!
What I didn't know was which colours I would get and I love the ones he chose!
First up is Meet Me For Drinks and wine coloured shimmery polish that glows from within. I love the colour, not unique but its a "lit from within" type shade and I always love those! I found the polish very thin and a little difficult to apply the first coat as I put too much polish on the brush and it slid all around my nail! A second coat evens it out and makes it opaque.
Read My Palm is a deep mint tone and one that I really wanted to get. I love these shades! This was a really nice polish to apply, like the previous polish it was thin but built up nicely with two coats! I love it! I can say no more!!
Finally, maybe the best until last?! Only Gold For Me is a stunning glitter topcoat with both small and large chunks of sparkling gold glitter. I wore this over Read My Palm this week and I adored it! I got lots of compliments on it. I just loved the combo of the minty turquoise with the gold. What you can't tell from the picture is how sparkly this is, it looks like little twinkling lights on my nails! Love!
Application is similar to OPI's Rainbow Connection in that you sort of have to place the glitter rather than paint it on. I did two coats so I got a few more bigger pieces. You have to pick them out of the bottle with the brush and dab them on to get a decent spread!
I was seriously impressed with the durability of this polish, I had three very physical days at work this week, moving things, lifting and dropping things on my hands and this polish did not budge!
I love these polishes, I love that my brother chose them and I love that I can't get them here and they feel a little more special in my collection!
