New Moyra polishes - Gel effect, Sand Effect and Holo

Hello everyone! After a massively busy weekend, I have a lovely pile of polishes to swatch my way through for you over the next week or so. There will also be the usual dose of nail art, but I hope you're ready for some super colours coming your way. 

I'm starting today with some more polishes from Moyra. I recently was sent some for review and as I was impressed with the colours and formula, I thought I'd go back for some more. This time I chose some polishes from their other ranges - a holo, a gel look and a sand effect.

Starting with the holo. This has the catchy title No 254 (!), but don't let that put you off - this is a super polish! A lovely silvery blue to start off with, the light catching rainbow from the holo effect it stunning! This is two coats with a coat of Seche Vite.

Next up is the Sand Effect polish, this one is Sahara. I'm not sure why it appealed to me so much in the website picture as its not the sort of colour I would normally go for, but I had to have it! It is a beautiful sandy colour with a lot of gold, but it manages not to be sparkly. The texture is very strong and these photos show two coats and obviously no top coat.

Last but not least, we have the Gel Look polish (and my continuing quest for the perfect green), Marion (No. 933). I had a nightmare trying to get the colour to show properly and I'm still not happy. Its a mid green that's just slightly sagey, creamy and opaque at two coats. It also has a lovely gel shine and is shown here without a top coat.

I stamped over this one and have been wearing it for almost 5 days now. I have had no chips and only very minor tip wear which after setting up the garden for a kids party and hosting said party is a minor miracle!

These polishes offer amazing value for money and having tried at least one polish from most of the ranges, they seem to be fairly consistent. There is a website coming soon, but if you would like to buy in the meantime, check out the Moyra UK Facebook page and take a look at what they have to offer :)

  1. I tried to order via their FB page but they never got back to me. Now I have no money... :(

  2. I was pretty skeptical about this brand when I first got that email but after looking at these, I'm thinking I made an error.
