Ard As Nails #Hashtag Collection

Evening everyone! Well... evening if it is evening for you haha. Today I've got some swatches of a brand new collection from Ard As Nails. I've got a fair few Ard As Nails polishes now and I love all of them so the bar was certainly high for these. Also, I have just realised I haven't actually got many on the blog which is kinda crazy as one of my all time favourites is from Kat! Anyway, onto the #Hashtag Collection...

  #PopYourCherry is a holographic deep red polish. I'm prettyy sure this was basically a one coater but because the light wasn't great when I did these swatches, I did another coat just in case. As I've always found with Ard as Nails polishes the formula was great, not too thick or thin so very easy to apply. Shown here is two coats plus topcoat.

#AllTheBooks is a bright blue and obviously also has that gorgeous holo in it. This swatch was two coats with a topcoat.

#Legend is a beautiful purple holographic polish which I think almost leans a bit pink. I'm not the only one right? Considering how many purple polishes I have, I'm pretty sure I don't have anything like shade which is obviously great. Again this was opaque in two coats and shown below with a topcoat.

Last of all is #Selfie which is actually potentially my favourite of the four. Totally into my greens right now and this is gorgeous. Like all the others this is two coats plus a topcoat.

Unsurprisingly I'm very impressed with these polishes. As I said the application was great and this definitely was true for all four. There is actually a fifth in the collection called #Angel but as I'm not really a massive fan of gold polishes (aside from when used in nail art of course), I decided against buying it. The sad news is that you can't buy any of these right now as Kat is temporarily closed for a revamp but she will be back open on the 24th June so put it on your calendars! Also, I'm sure you're wondering what the story is behind the names (I know I am) and I did try to find out but as the shop is shut I had no luck there haha. 

Hope you all have a lovely weekend. Unfortunately for me, I have a weekend full of revision for my exam on Tuesday but the good news is that after that I will have finished and can paint my nails as much as I like yayyyyyy!
