Accessorize - Pink Spice

I have for your delectation today ladies and gents, Accessorize Pink Spice from the Illusions collection.  It comes in a nice little 10ml bottle and I'm told it is a fairly good dupe for MAC's Bad Fairy.  Now I don't have that particular polish, but I DO have this one.  There are plenty of pics of Bad Fairy on the net to look up some swatches for you to judge for yourselves but from what I have seen, its close enough for me that I wouldn't want to buy both.  This one is a lot cheaper too at £4 a bottle, always good to save money, especially with me being jobless at the moment!


The formula on this was fine and went on smoothly, the brush was nice and soft and whilst I would personally have preferred it to be a little wider, it was fine and caused no problems.  The polish itself is a gorgeous colour, a rich magenta pink with coppery red duochrome flashes and a foil like finish, very pretty.  I liked this one because its not too girly, its more sophisticated, like pink would look like once it had grown up and started going night-clubbing.  I bought this polish when superdrug had a free delivery promotion, and I'm glad I did, its a keeper!  I want to try others from this range now, pah what was that I said about saving money?!

Great color! I have a polish that looks just like this one but everytime I put on the top coat, the color kinda seems to blush up all red.... Have you tried this? :) I dont know how to prevent this because it kinda ruins the "metallic glitter" look :(
But you just got a new fan! :-) pls help me by checking out my blog xoxo

Teresa I haven't actually tried this one with a top coat, I always leave these kinds of polishes alone :) I have checked out your blog and I like it, some lovely manicure ideas there :) I may pinch some if you don't mind, I would always link back to an idea I use :) I am following your blog too now xxx
