Zoya ~ Ash



Zoya ~ Ash
Cherry red with red and gold metallic shimmer

Ash is from the Urban Grunge collection from Autumn 2016. There are 12 polishes in the collection; 6 crèmes and 6 shimmery holos/metallic shimmers. I bought three of the collection and Ash is the first to shine on the blog.

The formula is really good and covers good. I used two coats for my mani but I could easily have got away with one. The drying time is really good too.

I made a bit of stamping on it, just because I was in the mood, so this is my final mani including topcoat.


I like creepy crawlies all year so my Halloween plates are good for other seasons than the month of October :D


Ash is a winner for sure, I am really impressed with the polish. The colour is really nice and the formula is so good.

Number of coats: 2, but 1 could have been enough
Drying time: Really good
Finish: Metallic shimmer
Overall impression: I love the colour and the shimmer. The quality is amazing!
Buy again: Yes

Barry M Coconut Infusion ~ Bikini and Flamingo



Barry M Coconut Infusion ~ Bikini and Flamingo
Light orange and lime green crème

Today I’ll show you the other two polishes I bought from Barry M’s Coconut Infusion line. I showed you Laguna yesterday and was in the mood to try on the other two to see if they were equally good.

I can reveal right away that they are good quality polishes. I used two easy and good covering coats for full opacity. I didn’t experience any problems with the application, and the coverage is really good. The drying time is good, so no complaints there either.

I made a dry brush mani with them, take a look. I’m holding Flamingo on this picture.
  

The pinkie and the pointer both have two coats of Flamingo and two coats of Bikini. The two middle ones have two coats of Silver Holo from Urban Outfitters, and then I used Bikini and Flamingo for my dry brush. There’s a layer of topcoat to seal it all up. I’m holding Bikini on this picture.


Here are the three polishes I used.


I am so impressed with the quality of these polishes. If you like the colours you should definitely consider giving them a try, because they’re really great!


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Really good
Finish: Really shiny crème
Overall impression: Wow. Great formula and coverage, really good polish
Buy again: yes

Barry M Coconut Infusion ~ Laguna



Barry M Coconut Infusion ~ Laguna
Light blue crème

I bought a couple of polishes from Barry M’s Coconut Infusion line. I generally like Barry M’s polishes; I think they’re good quality and relatively cheap. A good combo if you ask me.

I used two easy and fast drying coats for my mani. I’m impressed by both the great formula and the really good coverage – and also by the shine. It’s another great polish from Barry M for sure!

I made it into a Alice in Wonderland-inspired mani, take a look:

This is what Laguna looks like on its own. Two easy coats, and no topcoat on this picture.


The rabbit only stayed on for one and a half hours. I managed to catch and save it for another mani though :D

I am really impressed with this polish and can’t wait to try the other ones I bought. Stay tuned!
