The Demon Glow Top Coat is a UV top coat and due to my old age and not going anywhere that has UV light, I haven't tested it out but I shall donate it to the younger girls at work and see what they think. I was in Madonna's in Temple Bar earlier this year and that had a UV light section which makes you just look awful! Blonde hair goes green, freckles or blemishes go brown, not a pretty sight!
I've two In a NY Minute polishes to show you two and these are even cheaper at €1.29.... Definitely no excuse not to go out and try them...

I thought I'd show you the red polishes first. I do love a bit of red on the nails and these polishes are a joy to work with. They've a wide brush and in the photos below, I've only two coats of each shade on. Fine Red Wine and Chelsea Cherry are jelly polishes where as Chelsea in the middle there is a shimmery deep red. Delish. Take a closer look.

And on to the darker ones. I am in The Love with Boundless Berry, anything purple at this time of year just makes me happy. City Blackout is a plain black polish and I've topped it with Rock Muse Smoky Top Coat and this is gorgeous! It reminds me of a clear night sky. The top coat applies really easily and the glitter bits stay put easily enough. An effortless manicure that will have everyone intrigued.
