Ok, so you guys know I went to London. Of course I couldn’t leave the city without buying some nail polishes. Although, I have to say I didn’t get anything I had on my “wish list”. Actually, I never really had a wish list. There were a few colours I wanted from Topshop, but we never got there… And I totally forgot about Eyeko, but I don’t think I saw it at the drugstore. I remember I saw it last year at Superdrug…
Nonetheless, I did managed to get 5 colours at Boots =p

17This brand is targeted at teenager, so the price is quite cheap. The formula isn’t that outstanding, but hey you get what you pay for, right? I believe it was £2.99 for a bottle, but when I bought it there was a “3 for 2” deal. The finish is very shiny, even without a topcoat! The brushes are the flat and wide ones. I thought they were very short and stiff. It wasn’t that easy to control it.
The colours I got are Mint Choc Chip, Pink Lemonade and Exquisite. My favourites are Exquisite and Mint Choc Chip.
Exquisite is a beautiful shimmer green, which makes a wonderful fall/winter colour. Now I normally don’t like greens or blues. But this one is dark enough and I love how there are green shimmers! It gives the colour more depth, when you stare into it, it’s like you’re looking into space. The colour actually reminds me of my jar Gunze metal paint I use to paint the eyes of my Gundams. Hahaha… I always thought that was a beautiful colour. Two coats is enough, but if you want it really dark go for three coats.
I don’t know why they named it Mint Choc Chip. The name actually reminds me of a brown or a muddy colour. Maybe it’s the “Mint” in the name? Anyway, the colour is a very light pastel blue. I wasn’t really looking for a pastel blue, but when I saw the bottle I immediately thought “I must have this!” When I put on this colour on my nail, my first thought was it was quite sheer. But three coats are enough and no streaks! Love the formula!
I’m not sure if I really like Pink Lemonade. It’s quite pink, like flamingo pink? The formula is very sheer. I used three coats and it’s still sheer. I’m not sure if it’s meant to be, because it’s not really a French manicure colour. I used three coats, but I wouldn’t mind if I did four coats or even five…
Overall, I really like this brand. It’s not streaky at all, it’s super shiny and did I say it’s not streaky? XD
