Nails by Flormar

You may remember my recent Flormar haul which included 3 new nailpolish purchases.

The lovely Vita from Making Up 4 My Age requested a swatch of Supermatte #111 (the dark brown one) first but over the course of last week I tried all 3 polishes, and here they are.

Colours are: Selection #10 (pale), Supershine #04 (Coral), Supermatte #111 (browny plum)


Selection #10
I really like the colour of this in the bottle, a lovely pale pinky peach, and to tell you the truth I was expecting a more cream finish. Instead it's frosted formula which is my least liked formulas for polishes. My nails aren't that smooth and buffed, so frosted polishes just look very streaky on my nails. In the picture below I'm wearing 3 coats of the polish and even though it looks quite opaque, you can see the streakiness on my ring finger.

Because I'm not a fan of the frost, I only left this on for one day before removing it so I can't comment on the lasting power, however even with the 3 coats this polish was dry within the hour which is great.


Supershine #04
Aah, this is a stunning colour that I do love. It's a beautiful bright coral with specks of gold in it... my camera wasn't able to capture the lovely gold flecks but trust me they're there! I got a great opaque coverage in 2 coats and this lasted me 3 days before I removed it to try the next colour.



Supermatte #111
When I bought this polish I didn't realise it was meant to be matte, but luckily for me this wasn't didn't have the supermatte look that I was dreading. It was more of a creamy look, with minimal shine. In the picture below I'm wearing a shiny top coat over it. The picture in the collage in the first pic is how it looks without the top coat. Only 2 coats are needed to get an opaque finish, but unfortunately after 2 days this chipped around the edges.


Overall I really like the creamy formulas, but not a fan of the frost one. These cost $5.99 each, which is very cheap by Australian makeup standards, and if I can brave the overwhelming choice of nailpolish colours again at Flormar, I will most likely get some more.

And don't forget, if you're in Sydney region I have a discount code that you can use to get 15% off Flormar until 31 July 2011. HERE is the post where I've got the code and details.

Have you tried Flormar polishes before? What do you think of these colours?

  3. Thanks for the swatch Lilit :) Looks like the supermatte is more vinyl than matte - I'm loving the colour on you. The supershine coral will be great for spring/summer xoxo

  7. I'm not a big fan of really shimmery/frosty formulas either. The coral looks gorgeous and the burgundy shade looks beautifully rich and creamy! x
