SWATCH: Collection 2000 ‘Teeny Bikini (42)’

This is a plummy, fuchsia purple creme polish that looks so much prettier on that it does in the bottle. I am very pale and sometimes darker polishes can make me look a bit ill and washed out, but I love the way this looks on me.

2 coats, fast drying, cheapcheapcheap. I cannot keep telling you to buy Collection polishes…just do it!

SWATCH: Collection 2000 ‘BMX Bandit (32)’

Another lovely Collection 2000 polish that I didn’t think I was going to like…but that has proved me wrong. Blue polish isn’t one of my favourites. I don’t know why I just don’t ever feel drawn towards blue. But this is an interesting cornflower blue with a slight purple tint that gives it something extra.

Collection 2000 - 2 coats…standard!

SWATCH: Collection 2000 ‘Neon Art’

Polish #5 from the Collection 2000 competition prize and another favourite. This is a tropical pink creme polish with a slight neon tint to it. Perfect for summer (which apparently arrived in London today - finally!)

Like the other Collection 2000 polishes I have swatched, this manicure took 3 coats.

So impressed with these polishes!

Swatch - OPI ‘An Affair In Red Square’

This is another of my birthday polishes, a gorgeous red shimmery polish which was originally in the Russian collection, but has now made it into the inner circle of OPI Classics. And you can see why!

O.P.I ‘Roll In The Hague’
I’ve already swatched this and reviewed it (here: http://talonted.tumblr.com/post/18659514457/o-p-i-a-roll-in-the-hague-this-little-beauty). I am still in love with this polish! I think it looks even better on my almond-shaped nails.

Saw a nice tape mani on chalkboardnails and decided to try it - Not sure why I chose these colors but I think they look like an 80’s rocker barbie (which I didn’t realize until I was finished!)

Cult Nails Toxic Seaweed
2/03/12

I do hope I get the chance to pick up another bottle of Toxic Seaweed before it sells out! It’s limited edition due to the flakies it contains, as they’re no longer available. They flash a green-orange-gold duochrome, which looks incredible against the teal jelly base. I’m actually really glad of the flakies, because without them I suspect this would be a little too similar to China Glaze Atlantis, though the glitter there is holographic and the base has more green notes.

Much to my surprise, Toxic Seaweed was as good as opaque in two coats. I used slightly thicker coats than I normally would and while there’s a tiny bit of visible nail line when viewed up close, you can’t see any at all from further away. The formula was also fairly thick, which probably helped with the opacity. From now on, I’m probably going to ration this out and layer it, just in case I don’t get hold of that second bottle!
