Sinful Colors ~ Real Regal

Sinful Colors ~ Real Regal
Hot pink with pink shimmer

Real Regal is from the Kylie Jenner King Kylie Signature collection. It’s a fantastic hot pink shimmer polish. It is easy to work with and it covers in two easy and fast drying coats. When I bought it I actually thought it was a topper, but it is definitely not.

I made some random dots in black and silver on my tips. I used OPI’s black “Never have too mani Friends” and Colors by Llarowe’s silver stamping polish “Sparkling Diamonds” for my dots.

I topped it all with a layer of topcoat, and here’s my final mani taken in daylight.

I really like the mix of hot pink, silver and black!

Here’s Real Regal on its own. Look at the shimmer! I don’t have any polish quite like this one – it’s a winner for sure!

Here are the three sisters side by side.

This could easily turn out to be a favourite drug store polish. I love the colour and the beautiful shimmer.

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Really good
Finish: Shimmer
Overall impression: Wow, what a great polish. I love the colour, the formula, the finish…

KBShimmer ~ Tall Pink Of Water

KBShimmer ~ Tall Pink Of Water
Magenta/purple linear holo

Tall Pink of Water is a HHC Facegroup custom from February 2017. It’s a lovely strong looking holo in the bottle and I really hoped that all the holo goodness would transfer onto the nails. And it did! :D

The formula is good and it dries wicked fast. That means that you have to work fast and can’t go over the same spot too many times.

I used two coats for full opacity. I also applied a layer of topcoat.

So this is two coats and one layer of topcoat taken with flash:

Aren’t those rainbows just amazing? I love them!

Here’s the same thing in the lightbox, no flash. I still love the colour.

I wore it like this for two reasons: It was late and I didn’t want to mess around with nail art plus it’s a lovely looking polish on its own.

Tall Pink of Water was limited edition and is no longer available. That’s a shame!

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Wicked fast
Finish: Strong linear holo
Overall impression: I would date this polish – I love everything about it :D
Buy again: Yes please!

Superchic Lacquer ~ Hypothermia

Superchic Lacquer ~ Hypothermia
Periwinkle blue linear holo with sparks of icy silver and gold duo-chrome reflects

It’s time for a Superchic manicure! :D

Hypothermia is a beautiful periwinkle blue linear holo with added sparks. I love it!

The formula is good and Hypothermia is a true one coater. I applied two coats that because I prefer it that way. The drying time is super fast!

The stamp I used is from BP-L 003 and I stamped with El Corazón’s stamping polish Restless Night.

This is the final mani, including a layer of Moyra’s stamping topcoat. The picture is taken in the sun.

The sun went behind a cloud so I snapped this picture. No direct sun but lots of clear daylight. I love the colour of Hypothermia.

Here it is on its own. Two coats, no topcoat.

This is the stuff I used for my manicure. The stamping plate could easily be one of my favourites. There are so many cool designs on it and it just works like a charm!

I love this, it’s just what I felt like wearing!

Number of coats: 2, but it is a true one coater
Drying time: Really good
Finish: Linear holo
Overall impression: Great polish, cool colour and effect, nice quality
