Review: Angelica Soft Satin Matte Collection
Just few days ago I spent the day at Westfields shopping centre in London with my hubby-to-be spending my birthday money on LOTS of lovely new polishes. After we had finished, Jack kindly took my shopping home and I went off into Central London for my friend’s hen party! We were supposed to meet in a restaurant just off of Oxford Street and as I arrived really early, I decided to pop into Primark to have a look around.
Just as I walked in the door, I saw a whole stand of Angelica polishes pretty much beckoning me over! Out of all the polishes I could have chosen, I actually only bought five (one whole collection) which I didn’t think was too bad as they were only £2.50 each!
The Soft Satin Collection consists of five colours – Au Naturel, Marshmallow, Peppermint, Iced Sorbet and Bluebell. They are all soft of matte, but not quite…it’s a really nice effect! The formula for all of them is the same, nice and thin, which is a really refreshing change (bit sick of having one gloopy polish in a collection). Each of these photos shows just two coats of the polish which was lovely as it didn’t end up leaving the polish too thick on my nails.
The Au Naturel polish of the collection is a beautiful nude beige colour. It would be perfectly professional and plain enough for work, but the satin effect really gives it a nice edgy touch.
Marshmallow is a lovely soft pink, actually the palest of all the pinks I own, so I was glad to add it to my collection. It makes me think of ballerinas 🙂
Peppermint is my second favourite polish in this collection – green is my absolute favourite colour ever, especially mint greens. This colour is so smooth and subtle, perfect for the upcoming summer!
Iced Sorbet is my favourite polish in my collection. “ORANGE?!” I hear you gasp? I absolutely love this soft orange polish. I don’t think I have EVER seen this colour in a polish before. Most oranges are really bright and end up making my skin look really weird, but I love how this looks against my skin.
Bluebell is definitely the brightest in the collection, a more purple than lilac colour, and is louder than I expected from the bottle. It still looks very pretty as a satin polish though, but probably is my least favourite in the collection.
You can buy Angelica polishes from big Primark stores for just £2.50 each or from the Angelica website for £2.75!
I actually didn’t realize that they have as many polishes available as they do until I saw the website! There are now so many more that I have my eye on! I love the look of the Two Tones or the Foil Metallics!
