On Saturday, thanks to winning a Twitter competition with Filthy Gorgeous London on Twitter, I managed to get myself to the Vitality Show at London’s Earls Court. To say thank you to the team at Filthy Gorgeous for my ticket, I popped along to their stand. I was lucky enough to meet one of the founders, Adam Dargan. Adam, was lovely and we chatted for ages, it was really interesting to get an insight into the brand from one of the founders. That’s what I love about blogging.
Adam treated me to my choice of three nail polishes since I had not had chance to try the brand yet. With Adam’s help I went for two glitter shades and one pastel.
The blue glitter is called Opulence, the bright pastel blue is Air Kiss and green glitter is Indulgence. The lace patterned bottles also came with the brands iconic plectrum labels, but I had to remove these as they get in the way when you’re trying to paint with the brushes.
I couldn’t choose just one colour to try first, so I tried all of them at the same time. I used the bright pastel, Air Kiss as a base and layered the glitter over the top in an alternate pattern. What do you think? I’m calling it my mermaid nails.
The green glitter, Indulgence, is my favourite of the three. It contains lots of different sizes of glitter, fine particles of Emerald green, blue green and larger hexagonal pieces of blue glitter, it goes on really thick, so even without a colour base coat, you could achieve the solid glitter look that I love so much. The pastel blue, Air Kiss, is a lovely vibrant shade, that is quite similar to Model’s Own Feeling Blue. Although I would say that the Filthy Gorgeous colour is a little bright and has a more opaque coverage with one layer. The silver glitter, Opulence also features a mix of particle sizes, but with less size variety as the green shade, it’s a mix of silver and blue. Opulence does not apply as thickly as Indulgence, so I would recommend applying more layers if you are looking for a thick glitter finish.
Filthy Gorgeous London nail polishes are available online and in store at their salon in Debenhams, Oxford Street and at selected other retails across the UK. The polishes retail at Â£9 and the Filthy Gorgeous site and Debenhams location also stock OCC make up and skincare from BeFine, which I’ve never heard of before, but seriously intrigued by.
What do you think of this colour combination? Have you tried any Filthy Gorgeous polishes?
