Nail Polish Haul ♡

Hello Ladies. 

I've really been trying to get back into painting my nails recently as I've been a bit of a lazy twonk to say the very least. I'm one of those people who either takes care of their nails, or just doesn't. The latter including nail biting and peeling (disgusting, I know). So I figured I'd treat myself to a few new polishes to keep my nails nice and pretty.

What I bought

Left to right: Rimmel 60 Second Nail Polish - Mind the Gap Victoria, Nicole by OPI Modern Family - Haley Good Lookin'..., Essie Nail Lacquer - Licorice, Revlon Nail Enamel - Radiant, Nicole by OPI Selena Gomez - Selena, Loreal Color Riche - Sequin Explosion, OPI RapiDry Top Coat.

Rimmel 60 Seconds Nail Polish - 503 Mind the Gap Victoria
This is a pastel bluey colour that most people would only wear during spring/summer but I thought I'd be awkward and rock it through winter. I absolutely love the colour and currently have it on my nails. It does need two coats to become opaque but it does dry fairly quickly so you don't need to wait around for a long time if you're layering it up. I think Rimmel's 60 Second range is great for those of you who are busy and don't have time to sit around like little madams waiting for your nails to dry. Oh, and at £3.69 it's super affordable too!

Nicole by OPI - Selena Gomez - Selena
I've really wanted to test out Nicole by OPI's nail polishes so I bought for this gorgeous pink from their Selena Gomez collection. I did swatch it on one of my nails after I'd bought it and it wasn't very opaque at all. I think this polish may need three layers to achieve the colour shown in the bottle which is a little bit of a disappointment. I won't judge it too soon so I'll post a full review on it when I've had a chance to use it properly!

Nicole by OPI - Modern Family - Haley Good Lookin'...
As soon as I saw the glitter and sequins in this I just plopped it into my shopping basket haha! It's so pretty and would be great to wear on a night out or to a party. I've tested this out on one of my nails and absolutely love it. It's so glittery, pink and gorgeous!

Essie Nail Lacquer - Licorice
I desperately needed a black nail polish as the one I had from Rimmel's 60 Second range had dried out to nothing. I've already tested Licorice out and it is so well pigmented you only need one coat. It has a beautiful shine too. I'm in love with this product and think I'll be using it very frequently!

Revlon Nail Enamel - 441 Radiant
This bottle contains little specks of blue sequins and glitter. It's pretty similar to "Haley Good Lookin'..." just in a different colour! I'm thinking of trying them both lightly layered over one another!

Loreal Paris - Color Riche - 842 Sequin Explosion
This bottle is so teeny and cute! It contains multicoloured glitter and sequins and is so so glittery. I think it's absolutely gorgeous and would look amazing layered over a black nail varnish. I'm really looking forward to painting my nails with this!

OPI RapiDry Top Coat
I was expecting this top coat to be quite glossy as the packaging it came in said it gave a "high-gloss shine" - It doesn't. Don't get me wrong it doesn't make your nails matte but it certainly doesn't make them glossy at all. A bit misleading OPI! It does however dry rather quickly which is great if you're as impatient as me! I'm yet to find out how long it prevents chipping but I hope it prevents it long enough to justify the price of this stuff!

That's the end of it guys. As you can probably tell I got quite a few glittery polishes. I just think they look gorgeous layered over painted nails and make them so glitzy and pretty. My favourite glittery purchase has to be Loreal's Sequin Explosion as it has so many different colours in it. I'm hoping to do a few NOTD's using these products so keep an eye out for those if you're into nails!

See you soon! x
