Ünt Sun Envy - The Plunge NV075

Soft mid blue creme  

The sun was briefly shining on this Easter Sunday so I'd thought I'd go with something soft and spring like

Ünt is a skincare and cosmetics company based out of Taiwan but who sell and market across the globe with free shipping to the UK. According to their website the name stands for Untitled, no mention of how that umlaut crept in!

I first discovered them through the recommendation of Simply Nailogical on youtube who raves about Ünt's peelable base coat (which isn't glue based like a lot of others) - and her bag of 'peelies' is surely a thing of wonder!

When placing my order for said basecoat I also added a handful of other items including this gel-effect polish.

The Plunge is a soft blue creme with maybe a hint of periwinkle?

Application was good and the swatches show 3 coats with no top coat.

I've had mixed results so far with the peelable based coat, more testing required!

Superdry - Urban Concrete

Off-white greyish creme

Another Superdry bargain from TK Maxx

Urban Concrete suits its name well, it's an off-white greyish creme with maybe a hint of green?

Definitely in the same family as Nubar's Faded Putty that I shared recently but without the pink tinge.

Application was good but it did take 3 coats, not too surprising for such a pale colour.

I really like this one, in fact I haven't had a duff Superdry polish yet...

Peggy Sage - Juicy Orange

Sheer orange glitter topper 

Here's yesterday's orange creme with a glitter topper from the Candy Party range.

Juicy Orange is a sheer sparkly orange with different sized hexagonal glitters.  The glitters are metallic red, gold and white and range in size from large, medium and small.

The fine shimmer and the orange tinted base make the soft orange of Clementine much more vibrant.

This was two coats over Clementine, a soft orange creme.

Peggy Sage- Clementine

Soft orange creme

Sorry readers, I fell off the blogging bandwagon.... back on now

Peggy Sage is a French brand that I picked up from an private sale site that's based in France (unsurprisingly!).

Clementine is a soft orange creme, application was fine and these swatches are 2 coats.  I'm not usually an orange fan but the softness really makes this work.

This is one of their mini bottles, only 5ml, but then it only cost me £1.60!
