w7 Suede Effect Polishes

Saturday, 16 March 2013

Hello!  I have another swatch-a-thon for you today.  This time it's the w7 Suede Effect collection.  I was intrigued as to what "Suede Effect" meant, but easy translation; matte effect.  I bought these polishes from Fragrance Mad, a site I hadn't used before but I can only commend their excellent service, and they had these polishes on offer so I picked up the whole collection for £13.80 including delivery.  Winner!

There are five colours in this collection, Silver Suede, Golden Suede, Pink Suede, Mauve Suede and Aqua Suede.

Starting off with Aqua Suede.  I absolutely love this polish, I think it may be my favourite of the bunch.  It's a gorgeous turquoise blue with shimmery flecks that dries to a matte effect.

This is two coats of Aqua Suede.  I was also very impressed at how quick drying this was, brilliant stuff!

Next up is Golden Suede.  Now, I'm sure I've mentioned before in the past that gold shades aren't my favourite, I don't know why, I just prefer silvers and metallics.  I wasn't particularly excited by the polish in the bottle, but when I put it on.... I take it all back.  This is a gorgeous golden colour with gold flecks, it's more of a neutral / beige type colour and I love it.

This is two coats of Golden Suede, again this dried really fast with a lovely finish.

Next up is Mauve Suede.  To be honest, this is more of a purple than a typical mauve colour (in my opinion), and it's full of silvery flecks.

Again, two coats of Mauve Suede here.  I love the shimmer on this polish.

Next up we have Pink Suede.  Again, this is a gorgeous polish, with gold/pink flecks running through it.

Finally we have Silver Suede.  This is a matte silver polish.  Probably my least favourite of the bunch, as the others have more substance with the different coloured subtle flecks in them.

So, what do you think?  I really like these polishes!  Especially given that they are such a bargain brand... they apply really nicely, are SUPER quick drying and I really love the finish.  I suspect my favourite of the bunch (Aqua Suede) has the potential to look nice with a glossy finish too, so I am going to give that a try in a few days time.

    1. I know! I'm never really that sold on matte polishes because I think, well, I can mattify them with top coat if I want but these have an extra zing about them.
