Hey Sailor, Ahoy!, First Mate and Star Board.
A very sheer golden yellow base colour with a super concentrated golden sparkle.
Again this formula is pretty sheer. A beautiful light champagne beige with light white/silver reflects.
Peachy pink nude (appears a lot less peachy in person) with a very subtle shimmer, i just love this nude for spring.
Perfect mauvey grey with a cool purple undertone. Very dirty and ashy the formula is so opaque you barely need 2 coats. This is a great colour to keep on trend with releases from the more high end cosmetic company's like Chanel.
I love this polish, the best way to describe it is like MAC pearl reflects in a nail polish. The gold/silver duo chrome shimmer is very concentrated meaning you only need 2 light coats. The base colour is a pearly white but as you can see pretty sheer.
This is the least impressive formula of the entire collection, which is such a shame because i was most looking forward to a cool pastel type of opaque grey. In the picture i have applied 4 coats because after only 2 coats it's almost not visible.There is a slight shimmer but it is very fine and sparse. Biggest disappointment.
Absolutely stunning colour, glossy and opaque in 2 coats the delicate grey blue is the perfect shade for me this season. Again, a very fine shimmer that is almost not visible. Opaque in 2 fine coats. Gem of the collection.
I really like the name, albeit it's a little cheesy... Bold burnt orange with deep red undertones.
Great for "colouring blocking".
Ha, oh how i just adore this name! The suggestive and flirty "Hey Sailor" is so descriptive to the type of scenario's that come to mind when you see such a red. What a vibrant bold beauty! To be worn strictly with your highest heels ;) You'll need about 3 coats to achieve this opacity.
A magenta/raspberry opaque cream with golden reflect sparkle. The sparkle is barely visible to the naked eye, you really need good lighting to pick up the beauty of this polish.
The most nautical nail polish in the collection the formula is a rich and opaque creme. The perfect navy blue. Great for us in the Southern Hemisphere going into Autumn/Winter.
I am beyond embarrassed to upload these pathetic pictures....... what a mess! I wish i had taken a picture of the brush applicator itself because it came so messed up and disgusting. This is the exact result i got (a total mess) using the brush as it was. I tried getting a refund but as I purchased it on eBay from the UK the cost of sending it back was more then for me to just purchase a new one so I didn't bother.
It is the truest green nail polish I have ever seen with no real hint of teal or blue as most do. The formula is nice and opaque, love the creme glossy look.
