Hope you are all having a wonderful day. It’s really sunny here in England so me and my boyfriend are camping out tonight woo!
Other exciting news is that there are now only 4 teams left in the World Cup!! Who do you think will win? I think Brazil are the favourites! To keep up to date with the World Cup nail art competition (see here) follow my Twitter account here.
So today’s post is a ‘Color Show Latte and Winter Baby Nail Polish Swatch’. These are my first Color Show nail polishes so I was excited to review them!
Here they are:
So up first we have ‘Winter Baby’ (cute name):
– Four coats needed, possibly five if you have the patience
– Extremely thin formula
– After one coat, it looked as though I had just applied a clear top coat over my natural nail
– Can see any lumps you have on your nails because of the thin formula
+ Nice brush and smooth application
+ Nice fresh white once opaque
+ Really shiny
+ Easy to remove
Overall, I would not recommend this as your ‘go-to’ white; it needed lots of coats which isn’t good if you are short on time. However, it does dry fast and you could probably get away with less coats if you apply them in thick layers, and once opaque it looks gorgeous.
Up next we have ‘Latte’ (yum):
-/+ Two thick coats/three average coats needed
-/+ Gorgeous nude colour, perfect for work/interview, but it was maybe a little light for my liking, my nails felt really bare!
– Formula is quite thin
+ Fast drying
+ Shiny on its own without a top coat (though I would still recommend using one for extra shine and durability)
+ Easy to remove
Overall, I enjoyed wearing this nail polish for work and I thought it looked lovely, but I think this colour would be better suited as a base coat for nail art designs. Though you probably can’t tell from the pictures, it was a bit too light to be worn on its own (that’s just my personal opinion though, some people may love this by itself).
So that’s all for now, I hope you liked my first real review because I can’t wait to do more 🙂 !
