I have reviewed these before, but I think its time I did a proper review. I have quite an extensive collection of eyes lips face nail polish
Chocolate Metal Madness
I have tried 41 of the polishes out of the current 78
Smoky Brown Pearl
The polish are of a good enough quality to be worn without a top coat, however the glitters do need one to help smooth out the finish, which is typical of a glitter finish
Around 80% of the polishes have lasted 2-3 days or more. Dark Navy in particular is the polish which chips so quickly, use a top coat though and that solves the problem
Red Velvet Rosy Raisin
Sometimes it seems as if the manufactures of ELF products don't have any quality control, because you occasionally get a polish brush which is splayed and wonky. The UK ELF team do have great customer service though and will give you a replacement or a refund
Polish dries at a pretty standard rate and the black is okay for stamping!
Basically this nail polish was a complete fail, very difficult to work with and it does not shatter or crackle which totally defeats the object of a crackle top coat. I used a purple polish as the base which you cannot see at all.
The perfect French manicure is something which looks good but is something a little more difficult to do. Especially free handed!
For people who really want to achieve the perfect French nail manicure then I do recommend these to you, they give a great curved line and a nice bright white tip. If you were to purchase these then you would need to get some nail glue and a top coat.
Wiped them with acetone to make sure there was no residue
I chose the right sized tips for each nail
Using some brush on nail glue painted the back of the tips
One by one I stuck them to my nails
Then took off the butterfly tabs
Filed down the tips
I wasn't happy with the finished look and the tips was catching off everything
So I applied two thick-ish coats of clear top coat on top, which really smoothed everything out and made for a much better manicure
I still wasn't 100% happy with this though and so ended up filing down the squared off corners
They are fiddly to use but this was my first attempt and it went okay I think. A good couple of manicures worth for £4.90.
