Recent budget brand favourites...

Monday, 20 May 2013

Some swatches for you today!  I just wanted to show you some of my recent favourites from the budget end of the scale.  So I've got one polish each from four budget brands that I love; Collection Cosmetcs, W7, Sinful Colors and 2True.

First up is Scorched by Collection Cosmetics.  This is a fairly new release to their Hot Looks collection and I love it.  It's a gorgeous orange/red shimmery polish.

This is three coats of Scorched, and it does dry really quick which is ace.  Collection Cosmetics Hot Looks Range is available at £1.99 a polish and what I love about this brand is that they have it at most supermarkets, so you can "accidentally" chuck a couple of polishes in your trolley amongst the weekly shop, so it's not like your really buying polish, or something.

Next up we have Neptune by W7 which retails at £2.95.  This is a very dark blue polish that has hints of purple and blue dependant on which direction you tilt it in the light.

This polish is very opaque, and I could have got away with one coat really.  This is two coats of Neptune.  I reckon it'd be a great base for a galaxy manicure.

Here's another polish from my Sinful Colors stash.  This is Midnight Blue.  This is a gorgeous blue shade, with a lovely shimmer to it.

This is two coats of Midnight Blue.  This applies brilliantly too.

Finally, here is a pale blue shade from 2True called Shade 2.  (My only grumble about 2True is the uninspired names they give their polishes).

This is a really pale blue shade, which on its own is probably only just avoiding looking a bit too much like blu-tack, but I think it will be a great base colour for nail art.  2True polishes retail for £1.99 each in Superdrug, and are pretty much constantly on a 3 for £5 deal.

So, which one is your favourite?  Out of this bunch, I have to say I am totally in love with Scorched by Collection Cosmetics, it's so unusual.
