NOTD: Urban Decay Hot Mess

I apologise in advance for the fact that this nail polish is not readily available in the UK, but I just had to share this gorgeous nail polish with you, and maybe my US readers would like to purchase it!

I was lucky enough to win the Urban Decay Holiday Nail Set in Lina's Holiday Giveaway and this is one of the gorgeous colours that came in the set. I think it might be one of my new favourites!

Hot Mess is the most stunning fuschia pink jelly nail polish with fine pink glitter running through it. I wish you could see how sparkly it is in the photographs.
 It only took two coats to achieve opacity, although I think a third coat would really make the colour pop. Since I only applied this for the first time yesterday, I can't really comment on the lasting power of it, however I used another polish out of the Urban Decay set last week which lasted me around five days with minimal tip wear. This was also lovely to apply; the formula is quite runny but not too much so. I definitely love all of the polishes in this set, I think Urban Decay need to branch out more in to nail polishes too!

Unfortunately, Urban Decay does not ship internationally, and I'm not sure whether this set will be available in store as it was part of a Holiday collection. However, if you are in the US, you can still buy the set on the Urban Decay website; it is now in the sale reduced from $28.00 to $19.00, so I would definitely recommend getting your hands on it!

If you are in the UK (or anywhere else!), I am trying to hunt down a polish similar to this as I love it so much and these Urban Decay polishes are only dinky at 5ml, so I will keep you posted if I find anything! Alternatively, if any of you could recommend a similar nail polish, let us all know in the comments! :)

Thanks again to Lina for this lovely giveaway prize! :)
