Island Girl - Pink & Micro Holo Glitter

I only found out about Island Girl polishes around five months ago via the girls on Instagram. As far as I'm aware, these polishes are only available in Hawaii and they are also sold in ABC stores in Las Vegas. The brand has such cool and vivid colours and they are quite cheap as well (under $3), the bottles are shaped exactly like the China Glaze ones and the brushes are identical too.

Here I'm wearing two coats of Island Girl - Island Girl (self titled polish, lol!), a fuchsia creme packed with micro holographic glitter. It's still a bit gritty after the top coat which doesn't bother me at all but for those of you who like your nails smooth, a thicker top coat will do the trick! The accent finger is Rimmel London Misty Jade stamped with BM221. I think pink goes with green so much!




Here are the colours I've collected so far:

    2. Yes, it's really good (especially for the price) I haven't tried any other colour changing stuff, and I think they were the only brand doing it at the time. It does work like magic though, I kept dipping my hands in cold water to show everyone it changing colour!
      It stays a lighter colour on your nail beds (where you are warmer) and the tips stay darker, so it's like a gradient effect on your nails <3

  10. Oh wow, that pink is stunning! And the pink and green is so pretty, it's a combo that always makes me think of 50s kitchens for some reason.

    What's the clear one with red bits in at the top? That looks really interesting!
