Tip Top Nail Addict Swatches and Review

Hello lovely lacquer lovers! Today's post consists of 4 polishes from a brand called Nail Addict by Tip Top. I acquired these polishes from a "name that polish" contest on Tip Top Nails South Africa's Facebook page. I don't believe these polishes are available for sale in North America (correct me if I am wrong), but I would love to get my hands on some more of these if I can!

This first polish is called "Barely There". It is a beautiful nude color which I doubted at first glance, but when I put this on my nails my opinion totally changed. This color can be described as a cross between a very pale pink and beige that is packed with glitter and flakies. I think this would look gorgeous on any skin tone. This is 2 thin coats and it has good pigmentation.

Next up is "Smitten". This is a very gorgeous hot pink (Although it looks like its a pink-red) with a slight shimmer. In my bottle I seen little gold glitter but it is not visible upon application. This is 2 thin coats and it is very opaque.
Third polish is called "Devoted" and I was least excited about this color. Don't get me wrong, this color is nice, I just have issues with red polishes hahaha. Devoted is a metallic red with visible pink and silver glitter within it. This polish is also 2 coats.
Lastly but certainly not least, my FAVORITE of the bunch "Love From Above". This is a baby blue polish with a slight silver shimmer that is not very visible. I have been searching for the perfect baby blue for a long time, and this is it. This is 2 coats.
I loved this color so much I wore it as a mani for a whole week which is long for me (LOL). I added an accent with OPI's "Gone Gonzo" and later matted it out with NYC's "Matte Me Crazy" top coat .
Overall these polishes are amazing. The pigmentation is great, the brush is nice and wide, and I love the teeny tiny bottles ^_^ ! I hope to get my hand on more of these because I love how nicely they apply and they do not have a harsh smell. Until next time, have a great day ! :)
