today I wanted to share a review on some Appeal4 polishes I was kindly sent to try out.
Appeal4 is a Danish polish brand that can be bought online and in shops in Denmark, Sweden and Finland.
I was really excited to receive all these pastel shades, because I’ve been wearing a lot of neon for the past few weeks and I do love a good pastel polish.
I’ll take you through all the polishes first and then let you know my overall opinion at the end.
First up is this baby blue called Baby Tears. I’m not gonna lie, this name freaks me out a bit! 😀 But I do love the shade, it’s really pretty! Shown are three coats.
Popdot Peonies is a dusty mauve, and contrary to Baby Tears, I just love this name, it’s so cute! The color is not really me, but it’s pretty nonetheless. This is also 3 coats.
Baby Palm Tree is a really pretty light green, that did go on a bit patchy but had a good drying time. Therefore 3 coats as shown weren’t that bad to apply.
Dress To Kill is a darker pink with blue undertones that sadly falls into the category of pinks that absolutely don’t suit me 😦 But it’s still a really pretty polish! Shown are three coats.
Hollis Milkweed is the weirdest name for a polish I could ever imagine! 😀 It’s a nice white though that is opaque in two coats.
Beach Clubbing has to be my favourite from all the colours I swatched, I’m just a sucker for minty/aqua shades! This was also 3 coats.
Night At The Beach is a really pretty pink, again with slight blue undertones. I liked this one better on myself though 🙂 Shown are two coats.
Soft Wave (again LOVE that name!!) is a pretty mint color. These are 2 coats, but it would have been a bit nicer in three thin coats like most of these, I think. It also had a really good drying time!
Dancing All Night is a sparkly glitter topper which reminds me a lot of China Glaze Fairy Dust. Although the glitters in this one are slightly bigger. To show you how it looks I layered it over (L to R) Baby Palm Tree, Night At The Beach, Baby Tears and Beach Clubbing, my four favourites from all the Appeal4 polishes I swatched.
Running Up A High Bill looked beautiful in the bottle, but sadly I didn’t like it on my nails at all.. I thought it was going to be opaque, but it’s very sheer. To show you I did one coat on my pinkie, two on my ring finger, three on my middle finger and four on my pointer. You can see how sheer it is, but when I tried layering it over another polish it wasn’t sheer enough to be a topper, if you know what I mean. If you’re ok with four coats still showing a visible nail line, then this polish is for you. Unfortunately I’m not too keen on this, so this wasn’t quite up my street.
All in all I found the polishes I was sent a bit too thin in formula, most of them need three coats which for me is one coat too much for a good creme polish.
I do make exceptions though when the colour is really pretty. In that case I can live with three coats for a perfect finish. Beach Clubbing is one of those, I looove that mint/aqua tone!
As I said before, my favourites are Beach Clubbing, Baby Palm Tree, Baby Tears and Night At The Beach. Soft Wave is also very pretty, but not very unique and I have other mint polishes that I can work with a little bit better.
Sadly the two other pinks didn’t suit my skin tone at all, but that is not Appeal4’s fault 😉
The white is nice, but not really a go to white for me. I was a bit disappointed with Running Up A High Bill, as I said above.
I hope you liked my review of the Appeal4 polishes I was sent and maybe found it helpful 🙂
Lots of Love,
