I always get excited by new brands (hmmmm ...did someone say geek?)

red carpet queen is a new brand to me so I wasn't sure what to expect; I was sent these awesome looking nail polishes by the hut to test drive and I'm pretty impressed with them. 

firstly I'll say they're far too much fun, the packaging is a brilliant novelty! (probably the closest I'll get to holding actual bullets- probably a good thing considering the amount of serial killer documentaries I watch!) 
I've been wearing controversy for 4 days now- I'm beginning to see very small chips beginning on my right index finger & thumb but the others and my left hand remains chip free (I have a special skill for chipping polish so I'm always impressed by anything that lasts longer than 3-4 days!) they've been formulated with an extra high dose of nitrocellulose to keep them strong and long lasting so this is probably why!

the colours of the polishes are really something; if you're a fan of neon polish be warned these are pretty damn tempting! 

here are some colour swatches for you:
diva mayday is a shocking neon pink! really bright, fun and perfect summer nail wear! (this is actually just one coat shown swatched here!!)
controversy is a really pretty pastel blue/green (very similar to the popular essie mint candy apple) this is two coats here which is all you need for full coverage.
pow! high energy is a bright neon orange; one that I'll definitely wear on a night out (I used 2 coats here and it's beyond bright, I love it!)

well all in all.. I'm impressed! 

I like these bright shades and the bullet proof branding is fantastic, the bottles feel heavy, luxurious and expensive. my only dislike; they seem to take a little longer to dry than some of my other polishes (a pet hate because I paint my nails so often I get impatient! grrrr) 
if you want to have a look at some of the other colours on offer you can see the whole range here!

rather depressing but I think these hot neon's are the closest I'll get to any warmth this week... damn you snow, damn you!!

what so you think of these? do you like the design too?

  1. Wow these look incredible and the packaging is fantastic!

    I saw these the other day whilst browsing the Look Fantastic website and I remembered that I had seen you mention them on Instagram; needless to say I waited for your review.

    They would certainly stand out in my box of nail polishes.
