I'm a complete glitter bug so this is one of the prezzies I asked santa for. The trio cost £25 but its now priced at £18 on the Nails Inc site.
Hatton Garden is a clear base filled with teeny tiny flecks of silver glitter and larger holo/silver glitter. I had no problems with the application and used 2 coats.
This has to be one of my favourite glitters ever, it twinkles like crazy and flashes blue, red, green, purple, orange. I just love it! The texture is quite gritty but a good top-coat sorts that out.
Out of all 3 colours, Buckingham Street had the most problems. Looking at the polish in the bottle I thought the base was a black jelly packed with magenta glitter but the base is actually a random blue shade. I needed 3 coats to achieve full coverage but it just looked so lumpy and thick! There was shrinkage at the tips, it just looked really sloppy.
The texture is thick and gloopy, it was a nightmare to apply. The finish was incredibly dull and I know thats typical of glitters but no matter how many layers of top-coat you put on, it just seems to disappear.
Chelsea Embankment is the one I expected to like the least but i love it. I'm usually not a fan of gold polish but the tone suits my skin more than any I've tried in the past. Theres no larger chunks of glitter, the glitter is small and not overly gritty.
The formulation is spot on and it applied smoothly.
With top-coat, all 3 polishes had a glossy finish but its worth applying another layer of top-coat the next day.
Has anyone tried these? Which is your fave?
