Picture Polish - Tailfeather and polish haul from Poland.

Today I want to show you a pretty polish.

Tailfeather is a beautiful mint green polish with micro scattered holo glass flecks from Picture Polishes Collaboration collection. This one is a collaboration with the talented blogger Kayla Shevonne.

It's a really pretty polish, but I had some trouble with the formula which was quite thin and made it a little annoying to put on. Furthermore it took 4 coats to get opaque, which also made the drying time long. I'm just not a big fan of polishes like this even though I love the color, that just wasn't enough for me, so I found it a new owner.

Anyway here it is with top coat in natural light.

What do you think?

Application: 6/10
Opacity: 4/10
Colour, prettiness: 9/10
Value for money: 6/10
Overall: 6,5/10
Buy again: Probably not.

Polish Haul from Poland

This weekend we were in Poland for our best friends wedding and of course I had to shop a bit. They had a mall there that was just heaven for a polishaholic like me *yay*

Here is the whole haul.

Let's take a closer look:

In a Douglas shop at Focus Mall I found Essense at 6.99 PLN a piece.

In Focus Mall there was booth in the middle of the hallway with Golden Rose polishes. Oh there were soooo many different that it was difficult to just pick a few, but the hubby didn't think I should buy to many, so I got these 6. I picked a bit of different sorts. The frosted bottles look really cool! Prices was from 7.90 to 12.90 PLN

From left to right: 207, 30, 119, 26, 311 & 327.

In the city center there was a Rossmann shop that I had to try and they had a LOT of nail polishes from different brand, from brands we know in Denmark to a few that was Polish. This brand Lovely should be a Polish brand. The blue one is a texture polish. Prices was 8.59 and 5,69 PLN

In a Rossmann shop in Focus Mall I found Manhattan polishes. This is a brand I know from our trips to Germany, so when I found these beautiful glitter polishes I just had to own them. These were 13.99 PLN a piece.

From left to right: Laguna Love, Jungle Gem & Violet Volcano.

In Focus Mall there was also a Inglot shop that sold the makeup brand Inglot. This seems to be one of the expensive Polish brands and I think they are real quality polishes. I was recommended to try this brand and after googling a bit I found out that their Gel Effect Top Coat is supposed to be really good at prolonging the life of your manicure, so I had to try that out aswell. I'm really looking forward to trying these!
Prices was 21 PLN for the polishes, 22 PLN for the top coat and 15 PLN for a polish thinner.

From left to right: 954, 388, 234, Gel Effect Top Coat & polish thinner.

All in all I spend 255,59 PLN on all of these. That's 454,20 DKK and $80,33. I think that's a fair price for 20 polishes, 1 top coat and a thinner.
