ITSY Nails London Swatches and Review*

I was very excited to receive a lovely package from the people at Itsy Nails London a few weeks ago as I am such a huge lover of all things nail polish! I have a huge collection of nail polishes but that never stops me buying more and the ones I was sent, are perfect for me! 
L-R Drop Red Gorgeous, City Girl, Cosmic Dust. 
I was sent 3 of the DuraPRO Gel Effect Nail Polishes, in the shades City Girl, Drop Red Gorgeous and Cosmic Dust. These are the exact sort of colours I go for and especially with Autumn and Winter on the way, these are going to be used so much as they are just the perfect colours for the colder months of the year. 

DuraPRO polishes are an extra glossy gel effect nail polish that doesn't require all the hard work of normal gel polish which needs curing and soaking off. I personally love gel polish just because of it's lasting power, normal polishes unless they're really good or have a top coat, just chip within a few days so I think gel polish is worth investing in. DuraPRO is formulated to maximise coverage and performance and level out any imperfections on your nails. These make for easy application due to the flat and wide brush which adapt to the shape of your nail meaning it glides on easily and takes very little time. 


The first one I tried was City Girl which is a lovely soft grey. It looks great on the nails and is the perfect pastel shade for spring and summer, though this is one I would wear all year round. The wide brush made it very easy to apply and it only took 2 coats for it to look good to go and it didn't require a top coat either. It left a glossy finish and I got great lasting power from it, I think this would be a great one if you have a holiday coming up! 


This is the one i'll be reaching for at christmas! It's the perfect deep red for the colder months and I can tell it's going to become a real favourite of mine. This has a slight orange tone so one that would also look great during the summer months and so eye catching! The same as with City Girl. it didn't require a top coat and I used 2 coats which was perfect for a smooth, glossy finish. I am really impressed with the brush on these polishes, as it adapt to the nail it really doesn't require much time and there are no streaks!


I think this one might be my favourite... I always go for colours like this one so I knew I was going to love it. It's a really deep blue which I always prefer and just looks lovely on. Again, a great glossy finish after 2 coats and lasts well, I put this on over a week ago and it's still going strong! I have a few glitter polishes which I think would go great with this one.

Overall I am so impressed with Itsy Nails and these polishes! I have my firm favourite brands when it comes to nails but this has proved to me that their are other brands out there whose products are just as good, if not better and are definitely worth a try! These are all £5.99 which I think is pretty good for a gel effect polish that required very little time and effort. These are great to use if you're in a rush as they dry so quickly and the wide brush covers your nails so no need to keep reapplying until the full nail is covered. As I mentioned at the beginning, these polishes don't require any soaking when you want to remove it, just a normal nail polish remover does the job, it honestly took seconds to remove which is amazing as some of my others just take forever!

If you would like to try any Itsy polishes, you can buy from their website where there are also many others to choose from, delivery is free over £10!
