press sample


Hi everyone!!!

Here again with a swatch and review for you! Not too long ago I got a box full of goodies from TIP TOP Nails South Africa. I was so excited! The colors that were sent to me were very varied and I have to say I really liked that. Nail polish is fun and we should play with it! So variety is key! In this post I’ll review 4 of these pretties for you, i hope you enjoy reading!

Let me first tell you what they all have in common, QUALITY! These polishes have amazing quality; they go on very very very nicely, last a long time and dry super fast! I’m truly impressed by them! I will def put them up there with OPI as far as formula is concerned.

*I will start with the two duo polishes. These are the firsts I try of these kind, they never appealed to me because I thought they’d be hard to work with but they are surprisingly ergonomic, although the one with the caviar was a little heavy and you had to keep an eye on it so it wouldn’t tip over. In the pics you’ll see two coats + top coat

Can’t tell a lilac- This is a very pretty purple duo, the two shades go together perfectly and make for a feminine mani which is why I decided that flowers were perfect for it.

Beauty and the beach- is SOO pretty! this is the pink I’ve been looking for for a long time, for my baby pinks I usually use French Affair by Essie but the formula on it was so terrible and I needed to replace it, this is perfect! the caviar beads are a great option to spice up a mani quickly and effortless. This is my second time doing a caviar mani, the first time the beads were gone within hours but these I actually had to take off two days later!

*Now on to the single polishes, these pics are also two coat + top coat:

As the beat grows on- WOW!!!!! This is a TRUE neon! no white base necessary for this baby and it is almost blinding! THIS is what a neon polish should be like. I felt like I belonged at a beach in the Caribbean with this baby on my nails. lol (yes this one needed 4 pics)
