Is there anything better than trying new beauty products for free? Lately the German perfumery Douglas has been looking for voluntary testers again and of course I raised my hand really high. Last week I got my parcel with three nail polishes and three lip glosses from Douglas' own brand Douglas Absolute. They have shortly released their new collection called Summer Affair. The nail polishes are available for 4,99€ (which I think is an adequate price) and the lip glosses are available for 7,99€ (which I think is highly overpriced as they're not worth the money). As suggested I'm not satisfied with the lip glosses which is why I don't think I'm gonna write a review about them (if you want one anyway tell me in the comments), but I quite liked the nail polishes and here is why:
So far I only tried the nude rose which you can see in the first pictures. When I got the parcel it appealed me most but I also can't wait to try the bright pink polish soon. I'm not sure about the blue one because it is neither petrol, nor pastel, nor baby blue but just something indefinable. When it comes to the texture of the nail polish I was really surprised how covering it is. I just had to apply one layer to get a perfect result. Also the nail polish dried quite well and even though it might not be the longest lasting one I'm quite satisfied with it. Furthermore I noticed an extreme glossiness which immediately made my manicure look as if I had used a super shiny top coat. All in all I would definitely consider purchasing Douglas Absolute nail polishes in the future.
Which of these three nail polishes shades do you like best? Do you think it's the perfect nail polish collection for summer or do you miss some more groundbreaking shades?
