Another day, another battle! This time it is red polishes.
First off the top four are such a wide range of shades, which will make the next battle really difficult! ELF - Light Red is a prime colour, so simple. Barry M - Raspberry is a really lovely colour difficult to know where to place it red or a pink?
Barry M Raspberry and Eyeko Vampira made it through the round. Vampira is a very blackened red with red glitter throughout the polish.
I could have easily brought both in to the final but alas Eyeko Vampira made it on its own, purely because its a blackened polish and I have a leaning towards darker shades.

Battle of the blues, so many blues to choose from!
Cutting down all of those polishes to just four wasn't too difficult, Barry M - Blueberry Ice Cream is such a nice cream base polish perfect for nail art. Miss Sporty - Pop Fiction is quite a unique periwinkle blue, shame it smells really weird.
Making the final two are Barry M and OPI. The Blue Plum is just so rich of a colour and covers in just one coat.
And the winner is... Road House Blues! It's just more of a colder navy compared to the Barry M. Something very wearable, plenty of polish in there (15ml) and the brush makes application so easy.

Not sure this introduction is really needed but I am doing a series of posts to find out which polishes are the best in my 'collection' as of 2012. This as the title suggests is BATTLE OF THE BLACK, I am actually suprised at how few black polishes I have.
Models Own - Black / Red, OPI - Obscurity No 7 - Beautifully Black, Barry M - Black Multi Glitter, W7 - Black, ELF - Black
I really struggled to choose my favourite polish from the bunch. The Barry M is really nice, good formula and has a stunning holo packed in there. Then we have W7 Black which is a really good coverage polish, as a bonus it is amazing for stamping as well as straight polishing. Which is why I am putting both through in to the next round.

This is as close to colour accurate I could get, it is a deep violet shade rather than leaning towards blue. As with most of the No.7 polishes this is a very pigmented polish and as such is good for stamping with. The brush is nice and flat and wide, the bottles have changed recently and as such the brushes may have changed.

Something else I noticed was the odd shapes neck of the bottle. Only negative I can think of is when the polish is running low it may be difficult to reach the liquid
Opacity: One thick coat would do
Brush Type: Flat, Wide, Rounded Cuticle
