I seem to be going through a bit of a polish infatuation at the moment. Updating my collection with fabulous fusions of pretty seasonal shades and glittering top coats is what’s really exciting me for fall. I literally go weak at the knees for anything sparkly and this week I have yet another little polish partnership that I’ve fallen madly in love with. Check it out gals, are you swooning as much as I am over it?
I should begin by mentioning that like any deep coloured polish I started by applying a clear base coat to help prevent staining. Once dried it was time to break out the fun stuff! This week I’ve opted for shade no. 14 Blackberry from Collection 7 Day Wear Range.
Priced at only £1.99 this is such pocket friendly polish & boasting a 7 day wear it should last a little longer than a standard varnish. After trying it out by itself (2 coats with no glitter top coat) I only managed to get 4 full days before I noticed any chipping… maybe I’m just a ferocious typer who causes havoc to her dressed up digits?!However thankfully after applying my sparkly top coats it lasted much longer… but we’ll get to that in a minute!
The formula of the Collection polish is actually quite a nice consistency, it’s not too runny however with being such a deep colour it needs at least two coats to banish any streaks or patches. Naturally, the more costs applied the darker the result. Fear not though ladies, for in natural daylight (and after a good day’s wear) the colour settles quite a bit and becomes a beautiful rich berry tone that is super pretty and a distinctively rich-plum shade.
When I spotted this glittery little glass ball of goodness in shade 889 Amethyst Dust from Miss Sporty, I knew it would be the perfect complimentary top coat to adding some sassiness to my Collection Blackberry colour. The consistency of this polish is actually quite runny however the plus side being that it dries relatively quickly. You will need to build up quite a few layers to really pack a punch with this glitter. I opted for 3 layers which might seems a lot but the results are incredible & it lasts a good 7-10 days providing you maintain it well – for £1.99 it’s well worth the pocket money. I find using a really good nail & hand cream daily helps to prolong the lifespan and keep my nails looking glossy and bright!
Overall this perfect partnership of polishes will set you back under £5 for a sparkly fall look that lasts all week long. Not a bad investment, eh ladies?
