Collection 2000 Polishes

Christmas is fast approaching us and I know christmas parties will soon be around the corner, that's why this post is perfect timing.
Collection 2000 have a great range of polishes in festive colours and finishes ideal for the party season. For me an outfit includes your nails, so check out Collection 2000s 2 different ranges, and decide which one you'll be wearing to your parties this year!

Hot looks is at the very afforable price of £1.79 (8ml) and is available in 20 shades. 'Hot Looks' polish is fast-drying and gives a high gloss finish. I have 2 new shades Minx & Parma Violets, I was very impressed with Minx. I love the red/purple undertones this gorgeous shimmer polish gives. Parma Violets is a deep cream purple and I love this on my toes with Star Dust as tips.

£1.79 (8ml)
*Please note Parma Violets looks quite blue in the photo and its not, as you can see from the swatch below*

Here I have Buried Treasure as my half moon and then minx as the main nail colour, so pretty together. I really think that the gold brings out all the pretty different coloured flecks in Minx.

Parma Violets Deep purple/Indigo.

The other polish range they have is their 'Lasting Colour' which comes in 27 shades and costs £2.79 which is great value seeings you get 12ml of polish. I have 3 new christmassy shades, which will get you in the festive spirit once you see the swatches!

£2.79 (12ml)

I used Fire Engine & Buried Treasure together, but to be honest their indiviual colours are so pretty and pigmented you seriously just need 2 coats for maxium colour and coverage. These polishes claim to last for 10 days. Whilst I can't agree right now however I can agree that 4 days on the polish is just as good as it was when I applied it. So check back and I will upload pics to show you what they look like on the tenth day.

Fire Engine which is a true red perfect for christmas.

Buried Treasure is a beautiful metallic gold.

Star Dust which is a stunning silver metallic shimmery fine glitter.

The 'lasting Colour' polish does have a big wide brush however this did not bother me and I felt you could coat your nails with one coat almost.
Have you tried any polishes from Collection 2000? They are such good value for money, I already have my eye on a few more glitzty shades! I would love to see them have a shimmery blue in their range.

I have tried Collection 2000s lip glosses and they are stunning! Check out my post here ( I did purchase the lipglosses with my own money)

Thanks for stopping by :)

These products were sent to me by PR which in no way effects my opinion and is an honest review based on my personal experience. I was NOT paid for this review.
