Freckles Polish Swatch & Review Part 2

I received half of the Back To The 80s Collection by Freckles Polish to review a few weeks ago, and I loved them so much I decided to buy the other half of the collection! Check out the first half here!

Freckles Polish is a UK Indie brand run by Julieann. She's created some amazing holographic polishes and I literally want them all. Spoiler alert, I also bought some holos which'll be in a different post.

The Back To The 80s Collection consists of 4 neons and 4 complimenting holo polishes. This post will include the purples and the yellows.

First up is Get Off My Bum ... Bag.

This is a beautiful bright warm toned purple. I love it!

I used 2 coats for the swatch plus topcoat

The first coat was slightly streaky and there was still a clear visible nail line. It's fully opaque in 2 coats. The second coat also brightens the colour.

It dries very very quick, so you have to be careful with application. It dries to a matte finish.

I compared it to China Glaze Violet Vibes from the Electric Nights collection and Ulta3 Spring Break.

As you can see Get Off My Bum ... Bag is much brighter a pink toned.

More info and swatches after the jump!

The accompanying is Shellsuit Superstar.

This is a slightly darker tone of purple, but still very bright.

I used 2 coats for the swatch, although it was fully opaque in just 1 coat. The second coat slightly deepens the colour, so I would recommend a second coat, although it's definitely not necessary.

It dries matte so I added a topcoat to the swatch.

Next up is Rockin' A Perm.

This is an ultra bright yellow. It's kind of a mixture between a highlighter yellow and a sunshine yellow.

This had the trickiest formula of the lot.

I used 3 coats for the swatch, but I did still have slightly streakiness of my ring finger.

It's quite sheer on the first coat and very streaky. I had the same issue here as with the purple, that it dries super quick so you can't really take your time to apply it evenly.

I think if you're more careful it's an easy 3 coater, but because I started out pretty streaky, it just didn't end well.

It dries matte so I applied a topcoat to the swatch.

I compared it to Daisy Know My Name from the Electric Nights collection by China Glaze, and Models Own Bikini.

Daisy Know My Name is not as bright and a little more yellowy, Bikini is a lot lighter but just as bright.

The last polish in this collection is Scrunchies.

This is the yellow holographic that goes with Rockin' A Perm.

This has the same formula as all the other holos, super easy to work with.

I used 3 coats for the swatch as it was a little more sheer, but it was easy to build up and dried quick to a matte finish.

Here is a close up of all the holos. I think they're all so beautiful! I can't wait until the sun comes out more so I can get to wear them!

In general from the whole collection my favourite is Jelly Shoes, the pink neon.
