Tip Top Nails South Africa- Swatch & Review Part 1

Hello my sweets! Today I have a really exciting and extremely picture heavy post for you! I was recently contacted by Joan of Tip Top Nails and she offered to send me some product for review, and when I opened my package I was floored! Let's get on to the pictures shall we?

First up, Blue Meets Green.

Blue Meets Green is a beautiful saturated blue, which meets green;) My camera had a really hard time pulling the right color of this polish, even with editing it didn't come out exactly right, but it's pretty close.

For this I used two, extremely easy flowing coats followed by a coat of SV. If I had been really careful, I could have gotten away with one coat.

Isn't it beautiful? I definitely don't have any polish like this in my stash!

Next up, Red Rendezvous. Another extremely saturated polish. This is a brick/maroon red. This color made my TOP list of reds EVER.

Again, I used two easy flawless coats, followed by SV. I could have used one coat had I been careful.

This is the ONLY red in my stash that doesn't give me lobster hands. UGH I die!

Then, we have Creamy Orange. This is another one that I could not, and I mean could not get color accurate. This is much more "creamy" in real life than bright orange.

I had a really hard time taking this one off, it's such a beautiful shade of orange. I got a lot of compliments while I was wearing this.

Two flawless coats here, followed by SV.

Lastly, we have Sitting Pretty.

Sitting Pretty is a bright neon shade of pink. It's extremely saturated which made this super easy to apply, and for a neon of this shade, I had no balding, streaks and it dried shiny!

Two coats followed by SV.

Also, in my package I received Toughen Up Base Coat & Toughen Up Top Coat. I absolutely LOVE the base coat, it makes my polish stick will, with no staining, and I wore it under each of these colors (which I wore full mani's of ALL of them) I do believe I have seen a difference! Now, the top coat, well let's just say we don't get a long. I'm used to my SV which dries in no time at all, and the toughen up top coat is an extremely slow drying top coat. I'll definitely be sticking to SV.

You can follow Tip Top Nails on facebook not only does it show case polish, but there are tons of tips and contests posted all the time! At this moment I haven't found that you can order their polishes but their website is here. I am most definitely going to be contacting Joan about ordering more polish, because I am absolutely in LOVE with this brand.

What do you think of Tip Top Nails? What was your favorite of the bunch?

Stay tuned, because in a few days I'll be posting part 2 of my review which Tip Top Nails will be used as undies under some of my untried indie polishes:)

Until Next Time!
