I’ve reviewed three nail polishes since 1st April, however the last two fell short of my expectations. The colours were lovely, but I found the formula to be too slow to dry, or dries in an uneven finish. I’m really hoping this nail polish from the Limited Edition “My Little Treat” box by Cohorted can restore my faith in trying new nail polish brands.
This is a full size 10ml nail polish. I have the shade Melrose, which is a lovely bright mid pink shade, but if you like this nail lacquer there is a book of 70 beautiful shades available – for the full list visit kurebazaar.com. The cheapest price I could find the shade Melrose for sale was £15 from multiple places, including Johnandginger.co.uk. The cheapest place I found the polish for sale in different shades is fragrancedirect.co.uk where 16 shades are available for £9.99 + p&p.
The polish is packaged in a glass bottle with a glossy white plastic lid. The front of the bottle has the Kure Bazaar branding printed in white writing. All of the other sides of the bottle are left clear to show the lovely pink colour of the polish. The bottom of the bottle has a sticker which looks like it has been stuck on in a rush as it’s not even close to being central, it has the product, shade name and company contact information.
Ingredients: butyl, acetate, ethyl acetate, nitrocellulose, isosorbide dicaprylate/caprate, adipicacid/neopentyl glycol/trimellitic anhydride copolymer, alcohol, stearalkonium bentonite, styrene/acrylates copolymer, silica, diacetone alcohol, benzophenone-1, trimethylpentanediyl dibenzoate, phosphoric acid, alumina.
It took me ages to open the lid as the square plastic top is a cap that sits on top of a second plastic lid. When I first tried to open it the lid just turned. If you also got stuck like me, you can pull the square lid off, loosen the smaller lid by hand, and then replace the square lid to twist open. If you want to permanently improve the design a spot of super glue between the two lids will work wonders. Once the lid is off this polish is a dream. The brush is a decent length and deposits a good amount of polish on to the nail in one stroke. The formula is a great consistency- not too thin or thick. It builds up a great colour after a few coats, dries quickly and looks glossy and gorgeous.
I’m delighted with the results of this nail polish – it is absolutely stunning. This is so easy to use, and creates an eye catching, high quality result that I adore. I hadn’t heard of this polish before I tried it, but now that I have tried one I am very keen to try more!
Update: 13.06.17 – Today I recieved another shade of this lovely Kure Bazaar nail polish in June’s Cohorted box.
This shade is called Glam, and as you can see is very similar in colour to the Melrose shade that I already have. This shade is a little darker and a little brighter. Here is a comparison of them side by side to show the difference.
Melrose is on the left, Glam is on the right. Both beautiful shades of pink – Faye 💕
