Accessorize NOTD

I had a right hassle trying to get hold of one of the Illusion polishes from Accessorize's new make up range.



I originally ordered Pink Spice online alongside a baked eyeshadow duo but it was cancelled (so I paid £2.95 postage for just the one item, I hate it when companies do that!) and eventually I got hold of Aztec after I popped into one of my local Accessorize branches in Shrewsbury where the lovely Yvonne helped me get hold of one by phoning another store and having them post it to me! 



I've not been disappointed though, it's a really amazing colour with decent wear and a lovely formula. All for £4! 

The base to it is almost a sheer bottle green colour with pink and yellow duochrome flashes when it hits the light. I ended up applying 3 coats as with 2 the tips of my nails were lighter than the rest of my nail due to the distribution of the glitter-y stuff inside the base. 3 coats makes it quite a bit darker than 2 and it almost looks like a purple-y/black base rather than the green, which I like. It lasted 3-4 days with a top coat before chipping occured and tip wear was impressive considering the amount of typing I do! 

Have you tried out the new Accessorize polishes?

This looks similar if not a bit better quality than MAC's Mean & Green from the Disney collection, I want to get it and the one that's red/gold

I finally had time to go into my local Superdrug and was so happy to see an Accessorize section - will definitely head that way again on pay day. :)
