I was contacted by the lovely Sabrina of Polish Alcoholic to see if I wanted to swatch a couple of her beautiful polishes and how could I refuse. Today I bring you Lovejoy which is a gorgeous red holographic polish which makes up part of the 6 piece Summer Collection 2014. The polishes in this collection are named after famous comets. I love the way indie makers take inspiration from the most unusual of sources to name their polishes and I adore the names of the polishes in this collection.

This polish is a real chameleon in that the colour looks SO different in different lights.

As with all holographic polishes it looks best outside in direct sunlight, this way you can see the holographic effect really nicely. The colour also looks a lot brighter, more cherry red than the deeper tones shown in darker light sources.

In the shade you don't get the amazing sparkle of the spectraflair, however the colour deepens and looks so rich.

Finally inside its appears quite dark and the holographic spectraflair looks more like a gorgeous glitter.

Lovejoy is a 5-free polish, this is great as I hate the strong smell which comes with polishes that aren't free of all those nasty chemicals. The polish itself is wat I would call a jelly, it is a little sticky but not thick and is incredibly easy to apply. I found the brush was great for my curved nails and although the bottle is only 10ml, there is plenty for a lot of manicures as you only need 2 coats for full coverage as it's so pigmented. I found it dried quickly and the wear time was great.

You can buy Lovejoy from Sabrina's etsy store here for £6.96. Although she ships from the Netherlands, the shipping time is very reasonable and her packaging is adorable. My polishes came wrapped in tissue paper, tied with ribbons and labelled with the name of the polish - so cute!

You can also get 10% off your order (thank you) by using the code 10OFF. Go shop now!!
