If your New Look store is anything like mine, they will have stopped stocking Stargazer Polishes. Fear not as there is a new brand on the block taking the relay offering a wide range of makeup products at a competitive price: It's called Gold by Giles, created by British Designer Giles Deacon, yes, the same one who designed the fabulous statement legwear.
Today, I am excited to share with you my impressions and pictures of a selection of nail polishes which I believe will hit the stores on 21st April. The bottles reminded straight away of Nars polishes and I couldn't wait to try them on. Despite a formula which was a tiny bit thicker to what I am used to, I found the Gold by Giles polishes super easy to apply and necessitated no clean up. Let's have a look at some pictures, shall we?
Coverage wise, the bright orange and baby blue required 3 coats for full opacity. I was ready to go out for the door with 2 coats with the plum purple, turquoise and brown. The bright neon pink is shown here with only 2 coats. Three coats would have made the white line of my nail totally imperceptible but I really don't mind it like that. The medal of honour goes to the lavender polish, which you can see here with just one coat.
My favourite polish? It will have to be the bright neon pink as I don't own any other polish like it. I have a soft spot for the baby blue also, but that might because of the gorgeous contrast of the gold lettering against the bottle, which reminds me of Greece for some reason and the sun bursting on my polish, giving it an amazing shine. I believe there are 12 polishes in the total, but you will have to pop down to your New Look shop to check them out. Have I mentioned that the polishes are £2.99 each? Yeah baby
The Gold by Giles range is huge, they do eyeshadows, lip glosses, FALSE EYELASHES *screams*. My blogging and twitter friend Caroline was invited to the Press Event and has got some photos for you.
