I have no idea if Primark even still sell these polishes, I bought them a while ago and they have been sat on my desk, waiting to be swatched, and I just got round to it. These are honestly my very first Primark polishes and I definitely think I picked the right ones to start with.
Both polishes are sheer, jelly like polishes with a shimmer. Both looked great with 2 coats although still had visible nail line so if you want it to be more opaque a third coat would be best. All photos are 2 coats with no topcoat.
Although called Coral, this polish is actually closer to a Barbie pink but has a coral and blue shimmer giving it the slight coral lean.
Aquamarine is a beautiful light aquamarine shade with a light blue and pink shimmer.
This one is my favourite of the 2 as the shimmer shows through strongest in most lights.
Both polishes have a fantastic formula that applies beautifully, builds up nicely not getting too thick as you go, and they dry quickly. They are easy to clean up and remove. While the do dry to a shiny finish, I would recommend a topcoat to bring out the shimmer and extend the wear of the polishes.
With the shimmer being very fine in these, I wanted to try them over black and white and while they just look more pink and blue over white, over black they turn in to completely different polishes, both becoming shifty gorgeousness. Coral has the best effect giving a linear shift while Aquamarine is more scattered in appearance. The black and white I used are Barry M Black Forest and Barry m Cotton.
I highly recommend these polishes, especially at the steal of a price of £1.50 and I am excited to try some more from their range of polishes.
