Sunny Side Up (Not so much in Britain!)

Miners Cosmetics have yet again released a fantastic Spring/Summer Nail Collection and here it is in its full glory. Yes I know the sunshine has abruptly been replaced with snow in the UK but if summer-esque nails can help in elevating the mood, why not!

Jezebel and Marshmallow (right) are ones I have tried before but the first three on the left namely Sunny Side Up, Mango Tango and Keeping it Teal are brand new shades. At first glance, I wasn't too impressed with these as the shades are too inclined towards basic primary colours, giving them a retro feel, instead of having modern hues of shades or alteration in depth or intensity.

After trying them out however, 'Sunny Side Up' is a cheap and cheerful shade for £2.99, if you are looking for a yellow without investing too much. It's a bit thin in consistency but two coats give a good opaque colour.

'Keeping it Teal' is not a bad shade either. It's not unique of course, but I don't own a teal in my collection so it's also good as an addition. Plus, compared to the other polishes in the range, this one's pretty good on first application.

Aaah and my absolute favourite 'Marshmallow'. Yes its a very pale, in-trend, pastel pink and although it doesn't suit my already tanned skin very well, I still love how doll-like it looks on the nails. A must-have from the range and will exaggerate a tan quite well.

the colours are gorgous but they look a bit streaky upon application

@Steph - They are! :s But for £2.99, it's guilt-free fun I suppose :)

The colours are gorgeous. I didn't know Miners were still around. We used to sell them in a chemist I worked in years ago. Wow.
