De'Lish Nails London Swatches

*Press Sample*
Hello! A little while back, De'Lish Nails London asked me to be an ambassador for the brand and swatch some of their polishes. I love trying out new brands, especially UK indies, so of course I said yes. I was sent three new polishes, all of which are releasing on Friday 28th September. Read on for my full swatches and more info!

'Vino' is a rich berry creme.  The formula is smooth and easy to apply. The first coat is a bit patchy, but a second coat evens it out and brings it fully opaque. I love this kind of berry shade, especially during the colder months. Below is two coats with topcoat.

I always think this sort of colour pairs perfectly with gold, so I wanted to add a bit of gold sparkle. I sponged on Nails Inc 'Chelsea Embankment' to the tips for the look below.

'Inferno' is a yellow to orange to deep oange/red tri-colour thermal with added gold flakes. The formula is smooth and easy to apply, though this does start off sheer. It built up much better than I expected, and I had good opacity after three coats. All pictures below show three coats with topcoat. Here is the cold state.

'Dark Matter' is a black base packed full of shifty flakes - I can pick out purple, pink, orange, gold, green, and blue depending on the angle. The formula is smooth and easy to apply. The base is a bit sheer at first (to let the flakes show through), but builds up in two coats. This also dries naturally matte. Below is two coats without topcoat.

I couldn't resist a bit of stamping over this one. I used the leaf pattern on UberChic Beauty plate Halloween-01 and Esmaltes Da Kelly 'Kiki'.

What do you think? I really like all three polishes. I would happily wear them year round, although they are perfectly suited for the Autumn - especially 'Inferno' which screams Autumn leaves to me! I'm very impressed with my first try of the brand, and can happily report that I had no issues at all with anything.


All three polishes mentioned are releasing on Friday 28th September on the De'Lish website here - use my code BECCA10 for 10% off. You can also follow the brand on Instagram here for more swatches and to see the other new releases!
