My nails have been naked for almost a whole week!
However last week I was contacted by a new Indie Brand in the UK called Quirk. Quirk is a bit of a mystery brand as I have no idea who is the behind it but their first collection is a fun range of neons based on the band Black Stone Cherry (which is actually one of my boyfriends favourite bands, so he was impressed).
I was sent four polishes which is the full collection. I think it is clever to make a collection only 4 polishes as it means I can buy them all and not break any postage laws!
The first polish is Peace Is Free which is a mixture of matte blue hex's with larger lilac and translucent purple glitters. I layered two coats over Illamasqua Collide.
The Bitter End is translucent orange and green neon glitter hex's with smaller neon yellow and blue glitter. Again I have used two coats, this time over 17 holographic Silver.
Hell and High Water is similar to The Bitter End and contains neon green, yellow and blue glitter. The glitter in this one has more of similar sizes than the others. Again here it is over two coats over W7 Black.
Lastly is Boom Boom, which I guess is what the collection is named after, this has translucent green and neon glitters but also neon pink! I used two coats over Barry M Berry Ice Cream, I also used Essie Matte About You Top coat.
All these polishes applied well in two coats. I quite like the fact the glitter is a little sparser in these polishes, I feel they are just the right ratio so the nail isn't too glitter heavy. You do have to apply these polishes carefully, I used the dabbing method and although I didn't exactly fish for the glitter I found you had to pull the wand slowly from the bottle to get a maximum amount of glitter. These remind me alot of Lush Lacquers neon collection.
I then decided to skittle the whole collection over white. Again I have used two coats of each polish over Barry M Matte White and the Essie's matte top coat.
Don't they look great? I think Boom Boom is the one I like best although I really love the mixture of colours in them all. These are really fun and a solid first collection and I am proud to know this is from another great UK Indie brand. These polishes are also suppose to glow under UV light, but I still don't have a UV bulb so I couldn't get photos of that for you.
I am not a 100% sure when Quirk is selling this collection although they say it will be soon. In the meantime you can keep up to date with all the info on the facebook page.
