Nail Polishes From Secret Allure

Yes! 3 new bottles of nail products to play with, thanks to Wen from Secret Allure ^_^ She brings in various nail polish brands like OPI, China Glaze, Essie, Orly, Nubar, Color Club, CND, Spritual, Misa, Jessica & Zoya for prices that are up t0 50% cheaper compared to retail prices (see why I like online shopping?). She's also able to get collections before they are released in the market so you can be the first to wear the newest colours and show off to your friends xD

First up is China Glaze Secret Peri-wink-le which is quite a lovely blue-ish shade.

It comes with a regular nail polish brush and applied a little streaky but the second coat fixed it. Dries relatively fast compared to cheapo pasar malam polishes but not as fast as those quick drying ones. Since it says it contains hardeners, I tried bending my nail and to my shock, my nail felt harder! Which is awesome, of course.. =) The finish is shiny & smooth by it's own but looks better with a top coat.

Ingredients :

Size : 14 ml
Price : RM 29
Made in USA

Next is Nicole by OPI's Prized Possession Purple, which looks very similar to Sally Hansen's Pronto Purple (even the brush!). Will do a comparison swatch another time. I think Sally Hansen is redder though.

Check out the Perfect Stroke Brush.. I've always preferred these kinda brushes (wide and flat on one side) as it makes application easier and smoother.

Doesn't it look similar to SH? (pic below) SH's brush looks better and more precise, giving better control while OPI's is more fluffy. As for the polish, SH looks pearly while OPI leans towards fine shimmer. Basically, the Perfect Stroke Brush is better than the normal brushes but could be improved.

I had to apply 3 coats of this to look decent but I think 4 or 5 coats would look perfect. The shimmer isn't very noticeable, which is a shame..

Size : 15 ml
Price : RM 45
Made in USA

The last bottle... Is something I've been eye-ing for quite a while xP Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat!! Wheee~~~

The awesomeness of this awesome product does not need any awesome elaboration xD

Applies a little goopy but it smoothens out and dries in minutes, protecting the polish beneath it ^_^! No scratch marks, finger print transfers or dents. It gives extra shine and makes my polish look so juicy and thick. Applying this above the China Glaze helped it to dry faster (impatient me..).

Ingredients : Butyl Acetate, Toluene, Cellulose Acetate Butyrate, Iropropyl Alcohol, Trimethyl Pentanyl Diisobutyrate, Benzophenone-1
Size : 14 ml
Price : RM 35
Made in USA

My nails with all 3 products! Oops.. Didn't clean the excess =_=" I think I have not applied top coat on the purple too. Bleh..

My conclusion : I honestly think Secret Peri-wink-le is a very beautiful shade. The polish glided on like a dream too. Prized Possession Purple took more work but the brush is better. As for Seche Vite... Awesome! 'Nuf said.

Do check out Nicole's review on her set of nail polishes as well ^_^
