Nail Polish Haul

Hi m'lovlies!

Sorry I haven't posted in a while, I haven't really been sure on what to do! I thought I'd do this post as I bought a few nail polishes! Lately, I have been really inspired by nail tutorials from blogs, YouTube and magazines. I have seen that the trend of the neon and pastel nails have made a comeback for this summer so I went out looking for a nice pastel mint shade, I then remembered that Boots now stock Sinful Colors *yipppppeee* (US brand so that's why the spelling is different), I was excited to go and have a look at all of their colours! I bought more then I intended to buy but I know I'll use them loads!

These are the polishes I got my hands on!
Below is what I think of them all...

Sinful Colors- 24/7 (920) (http://www.boots.com/en/SinfulColors-Matte-Nail-Enamel_1321277/)
I'd say this colour is defiantly a fluorescent pink! I have been looking for pinks that are really bright recently, I found 24/7, I've been sucked in to the whole neon trend. When I saw these nail polishes in Boots for only £1.99 I thought I'd give them a go. From what I can see, and I have checked the bottle over and over again, there is NO indication of the nail polish being matte! I was a little annoyed but I worked with it and I've learnt to love it again. It was good at applying to the nail as long as you were quick with it. You could use a top coat to make the finish nice and shiny so it's not a big deal that it's matte. You could probably get away with one coat if you were super quick at applying but I used two-three coats.

Sinful Colors- Be Happy 982 (http://www.boots.com/en/SinfulColors-Cream-Nail-Enamel_1321285/)
I have been looking for a perfect solid mint coloured nail polish, when I say solid I mean no shimmer or glitter or any of that good stuff. I found Be Happy it looks wonderful! It is so great to apply, nice and creamy, it gives a really lovely shiny flawless finish! I needed around two coats to get it perfect and opaque. It's really pigmented and you could get away with one coat if you were in a rush. I'm really happy with this product! It's the perfect mint colour to suit my colouring.

Bourjois- 15
I really love this colour, it's classic and it can go with anything! It has a tiny bit of shimmer to it but nothing too noticeable, it just gives the colour a lovely shine. The brush in fantastic! The polish glides on to the nail in two strokes. It says that the polish lasts for 10 day but if I'm going to be honest I get bored with the same colour, I'm not really sure about the lasting power but I have tried another of the colours in this range and it's lasted way longer then any of my other nail polishes.

Bourjois- 14
The colour I chose, 14, is a light pink, nude kind of colour. It's nice and adds a lovley subtle colour to the nails, I see myself using this for when I go back to sixth form. It has a subtle shimmer to it, for me it's a great nude, great for formal occasions, work, whatever you feel! It has the great small angled brush that gives a fantastic application, I don't have to clean up the edges or anything!
