Tip Top Duo polishes - Review, swatches and nail art designs (pic heavy)

*These products has been provided for an honest review

Hello lovelies,

Hope you're all well! I want to show you another products from Tip Top brand from South Africa. The products are two duos - one with glitter, another one with beads.

Steel My Heart - steel grey metallic nail polish with a matching glitter. The combination of both looks very pretty and elegant and there's many more possibilities of what can be done with them. I went for two glitter accent nails and later on added some chic leopard print.

The formula of the polish was slightly on the weak side as the pigmentation wasn't that good. I've applied two thicker coats. I had to be careful with the application too, the finish is slightly streaky.The drying time was average and the removal of the polish was easy. The glitter removal was more difficult but not as hard as glitter nail polish.

Love on the Rocks - hot neon pink polish with hot pink beads. I've had some good fun with this duo :) The pink nail polish is very bright and neon and the formula is good. I've applied two coats which were enough for good coverage. The drying time was average and removal easy.

The first picture shows the nail polish by itself and the rest it nail art with the beads. I've tried to change the colour of the picture a bit so it reflects the real shade but as you know, neons are hard to capture :)

The bottles are the classic duo bottles that companies use for this type of product. it doesn't state how many ml each bottle has. The sticker with product information overlaps both glass ends and ensures that the polish hasn't been used when you buy it. In the other side when you want to actually use it you need to make a cut in the stickers or remove them completely and lose the info. The nail polish brushes are good to work with, they are average thickness (not thick like OPI but not too thin either).

I like the versatility of these two duos but I'd personally like to see slightly better pigmentation of the nail polishes. I know Tip Top can do it as the regular nail polishes I've tried re well-pigmented. Check out previously reviewed Tip Top nail polish Oh La La here. Right now Tip Top brand is sold in South Africa only but they are looking at the possibility to go international.

  4. Tell me you have an army of little elves who placed those beads on your nails?! They're so neat and perfect! Both manis look absolutely gorgeous, but the little bead love heart has made Love on the Rocks the winner for me (only just though)! Thank you for your beautiful swatches :)
