Recent NOTD's, Nails Inc, Maxfactor & Essie!

Hello my lovelies!! 
I've acquired a bit of a backlog of NOTD's so i thought instead of doing the posts one at a time i'd just stick them all together :) 

I'm sure you've all heard that Instyle magazine are giving away a free Nails Inc nail varnish, i don't have much experience with Nails Inc nail varnishes, the only ones i've ever used came free with other magazines too and the formulas were SO thin i was unimpressed! The shade i picked up was Peach Sorbet, which is too pretty <3
 It's really pretty, somewhere between a peach and a pale pink, rather unusual! The formula is again, not the best! You have to use at least 3 coats, although i use Sally Hansen Insta-Dri topcoat so it doesn't really matter about drying time for me, but if i didn't have that i'd imagine i'd be waiting forever for it to dry! 
You can still get this with this months Instyle, for only £3.80! But bear in mind the thin formula and the long drying time, don't say i didn't warn you! haha.

 Isn't this such an unusual shade?! 
It's Smooth Sailin' from Essie, my first try of a Essie polish and i must say i'm very impressed! 
It's a denim blue with silver shimmer particles running through it, very gorgeous! The first pic makes it look bright blue but it's more a muted shade like the rest of the pictures.
A really opaque formula, two coats and you're good to go :) 

 Isn't this the perfect Summer bright! 
This is Meet Me At Sunset from Essie again, it's super shiny and looks really good when you're wearing plain colours so it stands out :)
I got both of the Essie polishes in a set of two from eBay (link here), they're only minis but you get plenty of product for my liking :)

 For this beauty i used a nail polish that you'll have all heard of, Maxfactor's Fantasy Fire! It's been much blogged about but this is the first time i've used it since i won it in a giveaway, and i'm loving it! I used it over a Miss Sporty black nail varnish, and it shines so many different colours! it reminds me of OPI's Just Spotted The Lizard! in some lights, really beautiful! I can't wait to try it over more colours :) You can get this at Superdrug for £3.99, and they're on 3 for 2 at the moment, yay!

And that's all from me for now! Have you done any lovely NOTD's lately? Well link me below! I love seeing them :)
