[Review] Nailed Polish by Sleek - Oxford

Friday, February 26, 2010
Hi dear reader!

It's friday, it's rainy and my day started very slow. Then I received a package from Alice & Jo's Havesentials! I ordered it two days ago and from the ordering to payment, everything went great so that was a good experience. Alice & Jo's sells brands I've never heard of until recently, like Art de Lautrec and Sleek. Sleek was totally new for me so I decided to purchase three of them for testing, so here's a little review. :)

The one I'm showing you today is Sleek's Oxford. Oxford has a deep blue base colour and is packed with a little lighter blue shimmer, which makes it look very cool.



This is one coat. Isn't that amazing? I think I've never owned a polish that looks this good with only one coat. The formula was a little thick and that can be difficult for applying but I didn't experience any problems. If you find it too thick you can always add some thinner. Even though the polish was a little thick, it dried really fast. It's a good one for a quick mani.



Me, I'm a three coater. Most of the time I apply three coats, for colour reasons or to even the polish out but with this polish you definitly don't need three coats! This picture shows Oxford with two coats and is topped off with Nubar Diamont. With the top coat it's even more shinier, I like!



I took out my CG Matte Magic and this is how it looks matte. Seriously, most of the time I'm a bit disappointed the way shiny polish turns out matte but this one... It looks so silky.

You can buy the Sleek polishes for €3,18 (± $3,90). And guess what? They ship internationally! ;) I think it's a fair price for this polish. It might seem not that special to you with all the blues around but I think it's a good polish for a good price.

Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for more reviews of polishes I've never ever tried!

Ooo, that is so pretty!

Gorgeous. Like it best without the matte top, though. :D

De laatste keer dat ik daar besteld heb, heb ik alleen Art de Lautrec besteld.
Volgende keer toch ook maar eens naar Sleek kijken, want dit ziet er geweldig uit!!

That is beautiful and I love it matte. I can't believe it's so inexpensive and a one coat polish. Unheard of! Thanks for sharing about it!

Sleek heeft ook hele leuke kleurtjes, daar kwam ik ook eergister pas achter! :o

Michelle said...

I know, I was shocked that this was one coat! :o

Michelle said...

Zeker erg mooi mat!

Michelle said...

Ziet er goed uit! Ik kwam ze al eerder tegen op de site maar wist niet zeker of ik dit merk moest proberen, maar het klinkt nu wel heel verleidelijk om er wat van te bestellen :)

Michelle said...

Ja hé! :)

Michelle said...

Hihi, ik weet het, maar het is voor mij wel een verrassing! :)

I have a question. I see you talking about adding a "thinner" to the thicker polishes. Are you talking about adding a little remover or is thinner something different? And if thinner is different, can remover be used instead?
