H & M Hello Kitty Cool Summer NOTD

I decided to try out H & M Hello Kitty polish in Cool Summer which I got in my swap from Monika as a quick NOTD .

Cool Summer is a purple glitter polish with blue, purple and silver glitter in it. Don't you just love the bottle shape?? I know I do! And it's Hello Kitty too so another big tick! I love how Hello Kitty is giving the peace sign on the pic on the bottle LOL.

The polish is quite sheer so I did 3 coats (pictured above) for opacity. The brush isn't the easiest to use as it's a little.. floppy I guess and can leave bald spots if you don't work fast. It dried quite quickly and to a semi-matte finish. The finish is a little gritty because of the glitter so it's probably good to use a thick topcoat like Seche Vite to get it smooth, but my bottle needs replacing so I used 2 coats of Nailene Acrylic Strong Topcoat instead.

It's a very cute purple glitter polish and I don't have others like it so I'm very happy to add it to my collection! I didn't get time to stamp otherwise I would have stamped Hello Kitty of course =p

Thanks for looking =)

    @shazzii: Thank you for tagging me!

    @Enamel Girl: I hope you find it, it's definitely one to get if you can.

    @Asami: Me too! The characters they have are just too cute!

    @Carli: Now that you mention it I totally agree. The grittiness of the polish is one of the things I don't like so much about this polish but it's worth it!

    @Mae: Thank you Mae!

    @AnnKiins: Yes you would think pink wouldn't you! I shrieked too when I opened up the package lol. Hmmm I don't have any Ciate polishes myself so can't compare but in the pics I've seen the Ciate bottles seem a little smaller..?

    @Chris: Yep gotta love Hello Kitty ;) Now I want more to add to my collection!

    @Pretty & Lily Nail: Thanks ladies!

    @Steph: Thanks Steph! =)

    @Winnie: The polish wasn't as sheer as some others so it wasn't too big a deal. The Hello Kitty factor made it ok =p
