NYX Girls Emerald Forest

NYX Girls Emerald Forest is brilliant :) I love the glitter and the warm emerald glow it has. The base is a blue tone green, with a lot of warm green and golden glitter. This is 2 coats with no top coat, and the lasting time was brilliant, especially for a glitter. I definately recommend this :)

Nicole by OPI Lets get Star-ted over Revlon Blue Lagoon

I love the colour of Revlon Blue Lagoon - but the formula lets it down. After three coats it was still a bit steaky and uneven, and the dry time wasn't the best. I would recommend taking your time to apply it and wait a few minutes between coats, and use a good base coat. Blue Lagoon has a shot of silver microglitter through it which is very pretty. If anyone knows of a dupe to BL with a better formula please let me know :) I wanted to try Nicole by OPI Lets get Star-ted over top, and it looks very cute. It has iridescent glitter and holographic light purple stars. They don't sit perfectly flat on my fingernails, but where they do sit flat (or on my toes) they last on the nail until taken off with nail polish remover. Otherwise I am too tempted to peel them off :)

Misa Phazers on Stunning

This is one coat of Misa Phazers on Stunning over a black creme. It is so much brighter over black, it brings out the green, which reminds me very much of OPI Electric Eel. Phazers has a duochrome of a warm brown that leans a bit grey. There is also microglitter in there. This is a very unique colour, I can't say I have ever seen a similar nail polish. When layered on its own it takes 3-4 coats and the effect is more dull, so I would recommend using it over black. From the Misa 2011 Surreal Escape Collection. I purchased this from , and they still have the collection in stock :)
