Hello Lovely People. As you all know I was on vacationing in Hawaii last month and while I was shopping at ABC Stores in Hawaii, I came across these Island Girl polishes. Priced at $2.99 a piece, I went "Whaaaaaa..." and couldn't decide what I wanted to buy. So finally I had it down to 6 nailpolishes and 1 cuticle oil (which was too cute a bottle to leave behind). So here is my swatches and review of the polishes that I bought
The Island Girl polishes are priced at $2.99, so I wasn't expecting much of them, but to my surprise they turned out pretty well. The formula is easy to apply for all the polishes and lasts 4-5 days without chipping. I have even tried some nail art with these polishes which has lasted even longer.
I was lucky enough to find some holographic shades(I am a sucker for Holographic Polishes) in this polish brand. This one has no name only a number 1807A and is a lovely Grey holo polish. You will soon see me using this as part of a nail art.
The other holo polish I found is a lovely Blue shade which goes by the number 1804A. It looks so beautiful in the sunlight and I can't stop staring at it.
The third polish is a lovely dove grey shade with again no name but a number 1518. I love this formula, very smooth and easy to apply. I got the below results in just 2 coats.
Next is a beautiful ice pink shade called TROPICAL GIRL(M1806). I really like how it looks both inside and outside in sunlight (pic 2 below).
The fifth polish is a maroon-ish pink shade called TROPICAL DREAM(M1801). This formula is easy to apply but it isn't a soft polish - meaning it has a rough feel to it.
Last is a pretty soft pink shade called BIG ISLAND MAGIC(P1201). This is my least favorite one. Though the color is beautiful, the formula is really really bad. I applied 3 coats for the below pic and it still was not fully opaque as you can see.
Of course, I had to share the pretty cuticle oil bottle pic too.
