Ever since I saw BlissMag naughty, exclusive and pre release twitpic of the spring collection Beautyuk nail polishes, I've been obsessed with it and dying to get my hands on the new polishes. April 13th couldn't come soon enough. And boy it was worth the wait. Today, I would like to show 3 shades of BeautyUK polishes, out of the 6 they freshly released yesterday. And here they are in all their glory: from left to right, Aztec, Golden Chestnut and Voodoo (£1.99)
VOODOO is the most stunning shade of red. The ease of application, the cracking formula, the sumptuous shade and shine reminded me straight away of my favourite red polishes: that gorgeous little Red I have from OPI (part of an a halloween set, I'm not a waitress by OPI and Red Velvet from Elf.
But this one comes with ONE big difference: Voodoo is a one coater and the coverage is absolutely phenomenal. I would still recommend to wear 2 coats for longetivity of nail polish. Flash photography would also require you to apply 2 coats but I wanted to show the coverage in just one coat: ignore the shabby colours on this poor photo but note how undetectable the visible nail line is.
1 word: surreal! I am very excited about this nail polish. I believe this is the first red nail polish Beautyuk has ever released and they have definitely nailed this. Best of it all? £1.99.
AZTEC is a bright and bold gold polish which blew me away. Forget the 5 coats of Barry M gold to achieve opacity, this little number gave me the coverage I wanted in 2 coats. I like this polish so much that I threw the other that I had: Gilt-y from My face Cosmetics which was just too metalliccy.
Shade wise, in certain lightings (crude flash or halogen from the 3am kebab) this would look probably a little bit too brassy / cold for my personal liking but other than that I love it and I know I am going to get a lot from wear from it.
and last but not least, this is Golden Chestnut. The shade reminds me of milk chocolate infused with gold: I want to eat it. Like Azteq and Voodoo, this polish is a dream to apply. The formula has just the right consistency and the brush which I now totally take for granted and is used to, allow for very precise application: I did no clean up whatsoever on the 3 manicures.
In short, I am absolutely under the (voodoo) spell of these 3 new polishes. Did I say that they were just £1.99 each? If you have never tried anything from the brand at all, I would totally recommend you to try their polishes: this is, to my mind what they do best. Will I get the 3 remaining shades? Hell yeah!
disclaimer: these polishes were purchased by me.
