I need to admit something before this review:
I know nothing about Doctor Who.
I know, I should at least know SOMETHING…but alas, I do not. I’ve never watched any Doctor Who therefore I don’t have any knowledge or insight into the meaning behind this collection, so this will be purely about the polishes.
A Long Time Ago Tomorrow (two coats) is a saturated blue with glass-flecks. When it dries, it leaves a satin finish.
A Snogging Booth? (one coat over You Just Want To Mate?!) is a mix of red, black and holographic fine glitter in a clear base.
I’m Dr. Martha Jones, Who The Hell Are You? (two coats) is a bright orchid purple with green/gold glass-flecks. Like A Long Time Ago Tomorrow, it has a satin finish.
Is That A Technical Term, Jiggery Pokery? (one coat over I’m Dr. Martha Jones, Who The Hell Are You?) is a mix of pink and silver holographic glitter in a sheer pink base. This polish needs to be dabbed on to achieve consistent coverage.
Just Admiring Your Skills, Sweetie (two coats) is a dusty wisteria crème with a fine purple shimmer.
You Just Want To Mate?! (two coats) is a red jelly with delicate gold glass-flecks.
As a bonus, I also have two limited edition polishes to feature:
Sunburned Siren (two coats) is a coral jelly with fine holographic gold glitter.
Terrific Twos (one coat over A Long Time Ago Tomorrow) is a heavy light blue and holographic glitter in a clear base.
I adore the glass flecked polishes…not only are they bright and saturated; they have a jelly-like formula but are opaque in two coats. The jellies also have a great formula; opaque in two coats! The glitters are great in terms of coverage and aren’t too clumpy during application. You really can’t go wrong with any of these polishes.
This collection will be released September 21, 2014. There are two more parts to the Doctor Who collection: 5 will be released in October and 4 in November.
Are you a Doctor Who fan, or are you just as equally perplexed as I am?
