Hello lovelies! I hope you're all having a nice weekend. I've been stuck indoors with a banging headache but I still wanted to make sure I posted something :)
Just before Christmas I came across some Rimmel London Space Dust polishes in Boots. I'd not yet tried any of this type of textured glitter polish so I thought I'd pick up 3 as they were 3 for 2. Two of these were swatched a while ago, but today I swatched my favourite of the 3, moon walking and did some free hand one stroke flowers.
Moon walking is a gorgeous dusky lilac, crammed full of tiny glitters and larger hex glitters. Now this sort of polish is supposed to be worn without topcoat for a textured glitter effect. Usually I love super glossy so I wasn't sure how I'd like this sort of effect but I love it! This was really easy to apply although I found the brush a bit annoying because it had fanned out a bit but I still managed to apply pretty neatly and only two coats were needed. It's insanely sparkly even without topcoat. I decided to try it out glossy too so applied Poshe super fast drying base coat and then HK girl topcoat. It is rather rough so it needed quite a bit of smoothing. I love it both ways and can't really decide which I like best :)
Next up is the vibrant, pink Luna Love. Now you might be shocked to hear that this was my least favourite of the 3! It just looked so amazingly sparkly in the bottle and it was when I first applied it too but then as it dried it just looked a bit dull. I applied topcoat to make it glossy and you can see it brought out the sparkles a lot more, but without topcoat I was not a fan. Application was good though, again two coats were needed.
Finally I have the amazing total eclipse to show you. I wore this one over Christmas and absolutely loved it! It's a dark grey/black polish with green sparkles. It applied really well with two coats and what I loved most is that it lasted so long on my nails before chipping, without topcoat! I've yet to try this one with topcoat but I actually really like it matte!
I know you've probably already seen swatches of these elsewhere but I hope you've enjoyed my review :) There are 5 space dust shades available and they retail at £3.99 but you can often pick them up 3 for 2 in Boots or Superdrug.
Which one is your favourite? or do you dislike this type of polish?
