Enchanted Polish Future Reflections

Finally a post!

Sorry for my absence, I had a lovely holiday in Italy and then came back to the week at work from hell! I've falling asleep at the drop of a hat when I get home and that doesn't leave much time for blogging. Also, I really badly broke my middle nail on my swatching hand the other day so it's a good thing that I already have quite a few posts sorted up.

Anyway, today I do have a beautiful polish to show you from Enchanted Polish, it's from the newly released Time to Pretend collection and it's called Future reflections. I was amazingly lucky at Chelsea's April restock and managed to snag a ton of her polishes, apparently she oversold by something like 2000 polishes but she managed to get them all to us, amazing customer service and another reason to love Enchanted.

Future Reflections is a beautiful holographic navy blue/purple/pink subtle multi-chrome polish. As ever the formula was amazing, I used 2 effortless coats and one coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.

Make sure you look further down to see my amazing Enchanted haul! Lots more to come....


While I was taking these here is little Miagi. I got some catnip spray from TK Maxx and sprayed it on one of his toys, he absolutely went nuts and loved it!

Iconic Effect - A New British Indie!

Make some room in your Helmers, there's a new kid on the indie block and guess what? It's a British indie!

Iconic Effect will be releasing their first collection on Wednesday 12th June at 7pm GMT and I was lucky enough to be sent 3 of these beauties to review for you. Firstly let me say, they are all absolutely gorgeous and we are all in for a real treat! Iconic Polish Etsy shop can be found here.

Iconic Effect is the hard work of the lovely Kelly and Kerry, you can see the Facebook page here. The bottle are a good 15ml size and the polish is 3 free. Prices should be £6.50 each, which is quite a bargain for us here in the UK.

OK, on to the pictures, which i know is what you have all been waiting for.....

Firstly, just look at this cute design!

OK, first up is Iconic Effect Psychedelic Snarl. This polish is a beautiful shimmery blue with magenta circle glitter and tiny round glitters. For this swatch I used 3 coats on it's own with one layer of Cult Nails Wicked Fast topcoat.

I couldn't decide whether to layer this one or not so I thought I'd show you what it was like plain on it's own. I think next time I wear this I'll layer it over a darker blue, I think the shimmer would really show. This polish was easy to apply and the formula good.

Next up is Princess Drops, this is a beautiful glitter topper. It actually reminds me of the type of polishes Lynnderella is famous for. This is so soft and pretty with pale pink, blue and purple glitters, there are even a few stars and hearts thrown in for good measure.

I decided to layer this polish over OPI You're Such A Budapest, I used one coat of Princess Drops here for this coverage. I used 2 coats of Cult Nails Wicked Fast to smooth things out but really it would have benefitted from a layer of Gelous for perfection.

Again, this one was easy to work with a great formula.

Those little dots look like topcoat bubbles but in real life you couldn't see them, they are actually little glitters which sparkle in the light.

Last but not least is Pea Soup. This is a gorgeous mint green creme with tiny magenta glitter, bright pink hex's and small green hex's. I used 3 coats for this mani and had good coverage. I did have to swirl the brush around a bit to get the larger glitters but I had a mini bottle and I'm guessing it might be a bit easier with a bigger bottle. I had loads of compliments on this polish and rightfully so.

Look at those glitters! Gorgeous.

All in all I loved these polishes and I can't wait to see the other treats in store for us.
Make sure you grab yours when you can.

Jindie Nails Electric Grape

Happy Monday my lovelies!

Today I have a beautiful polish to show you, one which has been sitting in it's file waiting to be posted for far too long. In fact, I bought my only Jindie's around Christmas and I absolutely loved them when I got them. I put them in their drawer and you know what it's like..... you mean to wear them but more nail mail arrives and you get caught up. In fact, by the time I wore this polish I didn't expect I would love it that much, boy was I wrong.

Jindie Nails Electric Grape is described as a neon purple jelly with an electric blue micro shimmer throughout. For this mani I used 3 coats and a layer of HK Girl topcoat. It was a little sheer and I still had a little bit of VNL but really it wasn't too bad. I could have layered it or used a 4th coat but I really liked it as it is.

This is one of those polishes that glows. It did get some tip wear within a day which didn't really bother me but if you wanted to keep it on for a while you might need to layer it.
