NOTD: Winter Berry

Tuesday, 1 May 2012

I received this nail polish for my birthday from a friend and opted for it this week. Winter Berry is a gorgeous mid-tone purple. It applied like a dream, becoming opaque in just one coat! It dried super quick, which is great for me as I get fidgety and hate waiting for my nails to dry. I'm definitely going to have to check out more of Accessorize's nail polishes in the future!

Although the colour is lovely, I thought that my nails needed a bit of jazzing up so I opted for my new glitter polish. I posted about Models Own 'Ibiza Mix' a few weeks ago and mentioned that I had bought a new glitter polish that day... Well, this is it! It's by H&M and it's called 'Confetti' (what a cute name!).

Similarly to Ibiza Mix, it has large hexagonal pieces and smaller circular glitters. The coloured glitters are in a clear base and are lovely, with a blue, green, red, gold and silver. I personally think that this makes it quite 'neutral' and would go with any colour base coat.

The coverage of the polish is great, with lots of glitters on the nails after one coat. However sometimes I would get too much of the clear base on the brush making it too thick and no glitters were transferred. But with practice, it got easier and I found dabbing it on meant the glitter was distributed better than when applying it like a normal nail varnish. I was surprised at how easily this removed, as glitter polishes are usually a pain to take off. I have to say I am thoroughly impressed with this polish! Another great thing about it is that it only cost £2.99!

Have you ever tried any Accessorize nail polishes? What are you favourite glitter polishes?
