Deborah - Red Baroque 70

Red shimmer with holo glitter and bar glitter  

As you can tell from that description there's a lot going on in this polish!

The base is a pink toned red shimmer but then there's a good scattering of fairly chunky holo glitter as well as some pretty random bar glitter too.  I'm not entirely sure it all comes together very well!

Swatches shown are two coats with no top coat and as you can see with all the additions it dries fairly bumpy.

Deborah is an Italian cosmetics brand that I picked up from a French private sale site.  The polishes were so cheap I picked up a few so expect to see some more (successful) polishes from this brand.

Nails Inc - Chancery Lane

Coral creme

The sun is out this morning, although no sign of our promised heatwave, I thought I'd share a bright summery coral from Nails Inc

Chancery Lane is a nicely pigmented orange/coral creme.  Application as with most Nails Inc cremes was fantastic and the swatches shown are two coats, no top coat.

There's also a blue beaded nails inc with the name Chancery Lane - boy, it bugs me when they re-use the name for a new polish!

There doesn't seem to be a lot of love for the coral variant on the web which usually means this was a QVC exclusive....

What colour makes you think of summer?

A-England - Lady of the Lake

Dusky purple with holographic shimmer  

I'm rather remiss for not sharing any A-England before now.  I have a small collection of about 20 of Adina's polishes and they're all stunning.

Lady of the Lake is from the first collection, The Mythicals, back in 2011.

It's a slightly dusty purple with lots of fine scattered holographic glitter.

Application was great, only needing two coats, at most!
