Freckles Polish is another UK Indie. It's been around a little while but a couple of weeks ago Julieann launched the Happy Hour Holos Collection, 6 beautiful polishes named after cocktails. You can buy them from here, and see some more swatches too.
Today's polish is French Martini (I had to go and google what that was: basically vodka, raspberry liquer and pineapple juice - sounds lovely!). It is a rich red purple shade, darker than raspberry to be honest although in very bright light my camera has it looking more red. The quality is fantastic, painted on so well, and virtually opaque in one coat. I did do two coats, but I was amazed at the coverage on the first coat. It dried well, with a nice glossy finish, I have topcoated it and I don't think it has disrupted the holo at all.
I am so pleased I bought this, it is excellent quality and the colour is just perfect, it's dark and vampy and I am very comfortable wearing it. The holo is great, stunning in the rare flashes of sunlight, still visible in most lights but even when its not apparent the colour is so delicious anyway. And I'm delighted to see that since the weather is so rubbish, the colour is not a bad match for the gloves I made to go with my other red holos!
