Louise Gray for Topshop - Junkyard - Swatches and Review

Hello! I spotted this polish while shopping with my Mum in Topshop. It's one of four gorgeous glitters in a special collection by designer Louise Gray.

The polish itself is packed with large, medium and small hexagonal blue/turquoise glitter, with an iridescent sparkle. The base has a slight blue tint, but would probably need about 500 coats to replicate how it looks in the bottle! Therefore I've layered it over China Glaze Sexy In The City for this post, and I think it's pretty close to the bottle. You could probably layer it over any sort of blue/turquoise/green and it'd look great.

In my pictures I have 3 coats of Sexy In The City, and 2 coats of Junkyard.

The formula was great, no bubbling and 1 coat of top coat smoothed it out.

This is what it looks like on it's own, 2 coats -

Just a very slight blue tint to the base, not worth trying to build up on your nails really.

I love this and want to get the rest in the collection! These polishes cost £6.50 for 8ml. 

P.s. not long left to enter my giveaway!
