A England – Bridal Veil

Friday, March 9th, 2012

Wohoo it’s time for Kertin’s Holo Friday! The next polish I’ve tried from A England’s new Legend collection is the nearly black Bridal Veil, which also has a scattered holographic effect as most of the others in the collection. It was opaque in two coats and then I added Seche Vite on top. I have to say that I really like this polish! Okay, I am a bit weak for black shades, but the holographic particles makes it more special, even if the effect isn’t super strong.

Time for pic spam!

And I also took a photo in the shade:

It looks mostly black with tiny silver shimmer.

I decided to do some comparisons as well with some other polishes in my collection. Say hello to Color Club Revvvolution and Eyeko Cosmic polish:

As you can see Bridal Veil is much darker than Revvvolution, and doesn’t have such a strong holographic effect. The particles also seem to be of a finer grain in BV. Cosmic Polish isn’t really a real holographic polish as it only has holographic glitter in it, but I thought it could be interesting to add as a reference.



Eyeko Punk Polish

Thursday, April 21st, 2011

I got my first order from Eyeko a few weeks ago, and one of the polishes I bought was the pink Punk Polish. There is actually one thing that disappoints me about the color. In the bottle it looks exactly how i envisioned it, a true hot pink, but on the nails it dries to a slightly brighter and warmer tone. I guess that’s the neon properties at work as it does get a bit of a matte finish.

The formula is a little on the thick side, but it was fairly easy to get it even with two layers. I did get some bubbling but that was fixed with a layer of Seche Vite. Once I got used to what the color looked like on the nails I was in love, who can resist a bright neon pink?

Sorry for the sloppy work, I was in a hurry again..

I know this photo is dark and my hand looks kind of dead, but it does show how the color differs on the nail compared to the bottle.
