Who knew my mom would finally give in and support my habit?! lol I got a call from her last week when I was at work, she had found some reduced polishes at Hot Topic. Now, I had actually forgoten that there were any Hot Topics even in Canada! I think they recently opened some up in Ontario, there may be only 2 or 3 locations.
Anyways, Though vague descriptions over the phone of mini packs of 2 polishes, I told her to buy all she could find. The result? I only liked 2 of the 4 sets picked up, but it was worth it :)
Below are the 3 polishes I liked the best
On to the bottles!
The next set included a black jelly with purple small and hex glitter (*ahem* Bad Romance dupe?) and a blurple cream which reminds me of Color Club - Pucci-licious, which I LOVE!
All swatches below are 2 coats. I was pretty impressed with the creams, especially the yellow! Very bright and pigmented and not streaky at all! They both dried to a glossy finish, there is no top coat worn in the photos.
The Bad Romance Dupe could have used a 3rd coat, but it is a jelly and the formula was much thinner than the cream polishes.
The glittery polish could have been more saturated with glitter, as you can see 2 coats was not even close to full coverage, although I didn't expect it.
Here are the mini swatches are all together... I'm now just realizing that I think I may have lightened these photos a LITTLE too much lol, although the colours are totally accurate. I may re-upload edited photos when I get home from work tonight.
The other 2 sets I received included a green and red/pink cream & a medium pink and black shimmer.
What do you think of these Hot Topic polishes? Would you buy them? If you own them, would you purchase more?
