Swatch: Collection 2000 - Hot Looks Fast Dry - Hip Hop 28

They say ~ Collection 2000 Hotlooks Fast Dry Nail Polish is fashion led, catwalk inspired hot bright shades to add a flash of colour to any look. Collection 2000 Hotlooks is a fast drying, high shine nail polish.

I say ~ This is a smaller than your standard 10ml nail polish being that is is 8ml.

Nails: Matte Purple Pleaser

Elf Purple Pleaser and Elf Matte

The matte polish seems to be alright so far, and keeps them matte rather than going shiny quickly.

Nail: Matte Plum

Still not sure about this matte look. As you can see it looks a little bit streaky and that is down to the top coat.
