NOTD #7: Ibiza Mix & Lilac Charm

It has been AGES since I last did a NOTD, mainly because capturing the true colour of nail polishes on camera is a pain in the backside. However I picked these polishes up in Boots last week (see the haul here) and fell in love with the combination when I tried it, so it was only fair to share :)




L-R: Maybelline Forever Strong Pro in Lilac Charm, Model's Own HedKandi in Ibiza Mix

I love Ibiza Mix, I think it is the ultimate glitter polish for Summer. It is a clear polish containing lots of different sized chunks of orange, gold, pink, green and blue glitter; I can't describe how pretty it looks in the bottle, especially when the light hits it. I didn't actually think it would go well with a lilac polish underneath but I love how this combination looks. On my nails is one coat of Ibiza Mix over Maybelline's Forever Strong Pro polish in the shade Lilac Charm, which I picked up on a whim with the 3 for 2 offer because I had heard that these polishes are supposed to be good. It is a very pretty lilac shade with a slight grey-blue undertone, which I like, as I find that a lot of lilac polishes lean too pink for my skin tone.

Have you tried Ibiza Mix or Lilac Charm?

  5. Wow lovely! the lilac is so pretty and the glitter polish is perfect. I have a hard time finding a good quality glitter polish I like, might have to add this to my nail polish collection :)

    1. I'm quite fussy with glitter polishes too, some of the colour combinations in the multicoloured ones can look awful in my opinion. I really do love this though :) x
