Fragrance Direct Friday (on Saturday)

Hi peeps, welcome to the weekend!  I'm back today for yet another instalment of Fragrance Direct Friday, and I have 3 polishes to show you.  First up is this yummy chocolate colour above by Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear, called Chocolate Nut - available here for just 99p (surprise surprise!))  This is a really nice brown with lots of golden shimmer.  I originally bought this polish just because I didn't own a single brown, but once I swatched this I really liked it.  It really does remind me of chocolate - I was hankering for some Galaxy while I painted these I can tell you!

The formula on this is lovely, the pictures show 2 easy coats.  There are still a few shades of this line left on Fragrance Direct, including a pink and 2 purples that look really interesting.  I would of picked them up by now if I thought for a second that I could limit myself to buying just those 3!  
 I also did some stamping on this colour, which I will be posting later today, as this is already a pretty long post : )
The second polish I have to show you is NYC Quick Dry - Big City Dazzle which is also available here for 99p.  This is a fine glitter topper made up of fine gold glitter, and slightly bigger red, fuchsia and blue glitter.  I love these sorts of toppers for adding a bit of sparkle to a base for nail art as they enhance the nail art rather than distracting from it.
The picture is 1 coat over Revlon - Royal.  This does look great over dark colours, as the colours in the glitter really pop, I like it especially over black.
 The last polish I have to show you was in stock when I planned this post a few days ago, but unfortunately, I have just checked, and they appear to all be gone.  Not sure if they'll be back in at all, but this is the NYC Quick Dry - Matte me Crazy matte top coat.  This was also only 99p, and I'm very glad I bought 3 bottles : D  It dries to a totally flat matte finish, and I haven't experienced any chipping with it; however I rarely go more than 2 days without changing my polish.  If you're on the lookout for a matte topcoat, and are gutted that they're out of stock, don't fear, there are about 20 of these on ebay for £2.65 with free postage here and here.  Here's the mani's I have mattified with this top coat so far:


  1. Interestingly for me Matte Me Crazy dries to a satin finish- I like having the option of this in-between finish though

    1. That is weird! I have a Kleancolor one that dries to an almost waxy in-between finish. I don't use it though, as it seems to take forever to dry : / xx


I would love to hear what you guys think! There's no captchas, and you don't need an account to comment!
