Usually when a celebrity puts their name to a product there's that little bit of doubt that the product isn't going to be great, but let me clear this up straight away... The polishes are described as 'luxury to go the distance', they are all formulated with a gel finish so they look amazing and really last on the nails.
Rosie had a lot of say in the collaboration, as a self confessed nail polish addict, she made sure the ingredients, colours and even the brush were all perfect. After a year and a half designing and working on the polishes they are finally available in an amazing 28 colours plus 4 glitters and a top and base coat, there are nudes, reds, pastels... everything you could need, and they're super affordable too (starting at £7 each).
I was sent three colours and a base coat to try out;
'Fashionista' a very dark blue/grey shade, named perfectly as dark nails are the must have beauty accessory to match up with any outfit this time of year. This is my favourite of the three shades, it appears slightly different in most lights and really and is just so wearable - I love it! On a night out this looks really classy and for daytime it gives an edgy vibe to an outfit, it just works.
'Sky's The Limit' a bright blue which will add a pop of colour and an impression of confidence to any look. This is a shade I will reach for more in the warmer months or for a night out with an all black outfit so it really stands out.
'Berry Sexy' a classic cranberry-red shade which is definitely sexy and will work day to night for any desired look. A favourite Winter shade of mine when it comes to nails, clothes, accessories... this always looks chic and against my mainly monochrome Winter wardrobe, this adds that much needed rich colour to complete the look. It's always nice to be able to coordinate your nails with your bag/shoes/lipstick and this colour makes that really easy to achieve.
I have to say I was much more impressed with the quality if these polishes than I expected to be, they apply so smoothly and easily, and with the two darker shades, one coat is enough for full opaque colour payoff and perfect nails. The polish dries within a minute, which is always a bonus, and the glossy finish once dry is like nothing I have seen before, there is a real luminosity from within with these polishes, which is usually unachievable from a simple bottle of nail polish. Rosie hit the nail on the head with the design of the brush too, it fans out to give complete smooth and even coverage to the whole nail in one go.
I'm definitely going to be adding a few more shades into my collection... I've got my eye on some of the glitters next!
