Happy Sunday everyone,

I was also lucky enough to receive a big bag of their different polish ranges to try out.

They sent me 3 gummies, 2 gelicious and 3 (+1 for the newsletter subscription) colorazzi nail polishes, as well as their base and top-coat.

Let’s get to the fun part, first I would like to talk about the gummies nail polishes.
This highly opaque , semi – matte nail polish with latex finish is available in 8 fresh sorbet colors. Apply the polish in two coats for optimal results and allow to dry thoroughly. Do not use a top coat, otherwise the effect will disappear.

020 sweet apple

a very nice and soft green shade with great coverage and a nice finish. I applied 2 coats.

010 spicy mint

such a pretty light blue polish, which reminds me of a clear blue sky. I also applied 2 coats.

070 delicate cherry

not the usual pink polish if you ask me. I love this shade and the finish is just as pretty as with the other two.

I must honestly admit, I am a fan of the gummies polishes. I love the colors they picked for me and I love the finish. I can imagine using these for a cute spring nail design with polka dots.

 

Next I would like to introduce to you the gelicious nail polishes.
This innovative formula with plumping-effect gives an ultimate high-gloss finish. The wide brush allows an easy application without leaving streaks. They come in 9 colors, mostly pink and red shades.

010 be a ballerina

such a nice light pink polish, prefect for spring nail designs.

040 be a vamp

this might just be the usual red polish, a classic which I must say I already have a lot of.

I applied 2 coats for both of them and must say that the glossy finish really surprised me. It is very pretty how shiny those are without any top-coat.

 

Last not least are their colorazzi nail polishes, which come in 29 colors and combines high opacity and shine.

110 be crazy

not really neon, but a bit lighter and not as exciting orange polish. I am not sure what to think of it, but that might be because I am simply not a big fan of orange.

IMG_3884b

020 be calm

a simple white without any shimmer or glitter. You know I like trying different white polishes and this makes a pretty good first impression.

IMG_3885b

270 be friendly

a simple blue/turquoise polish, which looks darker on the nail then in the bottle.

I am not so sure about the colors I received. I am happy I got to try the white, but the other two are not really convincing me.

The two red polishes seemed pretty much the same so I did a comparison picture of the swatches. The gelicious looks a bit darker but the seem very similar.

As I said, they also sent me their base and top-coat, which I haven’t gotten a chance to try yet.

They offer so much more nail care products. I am always big for nail care, so I also wanted to show those to you.

Their products are very affordable, in the price range of p2 or Essence products. But if you live in or near Hamburg, those might be worth a try. My favorite are definitely the gummies polishes.
How do you like the colors? Anything interesting for you?
Please also check my friend Heidi’s Blog (www.heidispolish.com). She also received some colors to try out. Her Blog post is in German and very informative.
