I have recently got a pleasant surprise from Farmec: they have sent over 4 polishes from their new collection :-). Farmec has been producing polishes for a while now, but this is the first collection with such vivid colors. Yeeee! The new collection is also available online, here.
An interesting fact about this collection is that the shades will changed continuously and will be adapted to the actual trends and season.
What I like about the new Farmec Collection:
- vivid colors, very pigmented
- nice little bottles
- each shade has it's own name
- glossy finish even without a top coat
- they look a lot better applied on the nail than they look in the bottle. So don't be fooled by appearances!
I will present you the polishes in the order in which they appear in the picture above, from left to right. All polishes were applied in 2 coats and all pictures were taken in natural light.
Light pink color, that reminds me of flamingos :-).
#2 Spring Break
I have to admit that this polish was the one I liked least when I first saw the bottles. But after I applied it onto my nails, the pearly shine got to me. I love this green! Like I said, they look considerably better on nails than in the bottle. :-)
#3 Exotic Dream
At first I thought it was a classical red polish, but once again the new Farmec Collection has pleasantly surprised me! This one is an absolutely amazing deep coral shade. My first ever coral polish, by the way, and love at first sight!
#4 Pool Party
With the danger of repeating what I already said: LOVE LOVE LOVE! What really surprised me about this blue polish was its formula. Blues are usually very sheer and need to be applied in several coats. But not this one. If applied thicker, even one coat will suffice.
All in all, these polishes are fabulous, believe me. I am not exaggerating! It was such a pleasant surprise that they look better on the nails than in the bottle. Things usually happen the other way around with nail polishes, but these Farmec polishes really "shine" when actually used!
