Iconic Effect

It is so exciting when a brand new Indie brand pops up, and when it's UK based it is even more exciting.

Iconic Effect, a new UK Indie Brand which is owned by two lovely ladies; Kelly & Kerry has just begun a very exciting new venture supplying us addicts with even more handmade pretties.

I was so excited to receive two polishes from their first collection of six; Portfolio Pink and Purple Paradise.

Portofolio Pink is a pink creme with an almost shattered pink glitter effect. There are tiny tiny pink shatters that shimmer with a purple hue in the bottle.

On the nail it takes only two sheer coats to build up colour. I really adore this on my nails. With my pale skin tone, this shade of pink suits me perfectly. It is subtle.

And now, Purple Paradise. I layered this over Portfolio Pink as it seems an apt base :)
This is a packed-full purple and pink glitter top coat. Pink circles, Purple squares, smaller rose circles and a hint of holo; it's a really interesting topcoat. I used only one coat over the pink - it is jam packed!

Overall, I am so impressed with the quality of these new polishes. The pink has a really nice formula - it's not gloopy so no dragging on the nail! I cannot stand gloopy polish. The glitter is so full you only need one coat. Good job girls, I can't wait to try more!
