Nail Polish Battle 2014: Duochrome + Holographic

 MUA - Stormy Skies // OPI - Peace, Love and OPI // W7 - Twilight

And the winner is Twilight, this is a stunning duochrome going from navy to purple, it is more of a glass flecked duochrome polish.

 

Moving on to holographic polishes;

A England - Encore Margot // Moyra - Gravity // Moyra - Aquarius

The winner is A England's Encore Margot, simply because I prefer a silver than a coloured holo. All three of these are great holographics though, just less impressive during the winter.

Stamping Plate: Born Pretty Store - BP13

Born Pretty Store recently came out with their own range of stamping plates, I managed to get a couple of these in a special 1p sale. Having not tried any of there plates before I was interested in seeing if they actually stamped, and I was pleasantly surprised.

These plates come with a branded backing which means the edges not sharp.

I used Kleancolor Metallic Sapphire to stamp with and as you can see I didn't have problems with any of the images. There are four full nail images and four standard images.

I like the thatched image the most as well as the weather symbols,

Once I have used this plate you will be able to see all of them by clicking here.

I also have a 10% off code for the website which you can use if you want to;

Nail Polish Battle 2014: Pink + Purple

Not nearly enough purples have came my way this year!

 Leighton Denny - Pillow Talk // Leighton Denny - Crushed Grape // Barry M - Bikini // OPI - Do You Have This Color in Stock-Holm? // W7 - Purple Rain

Firstly I chose my two favourites from this section, both of these are gorgeous cream colours. Bikini is the lighter of the two, and has cute limited edition packaging.


The winner has to be the OPI, a beautiful colour which translates two or three shades lighter on the nail than in the bottle. I prefer darker purples.

Nail Polish Battle 2014: Reds

Looking at the new red polishes of 2014

Nails Inc - Optic Flame // Barry M - Crush // Sally Hansen - Potent Port // Jacava - Red Velvet // Leighton Denny - Vamp

Barry M's Crush is a really nice colour but I find it chips so quickly on me. Also Vamp is a gorgeous colour but it leans very dark which while I do like, it isn't red enough to win the red category! So the winner is Red Velvet, a tone or two lighter than Vamp and very clearly a deep red.
