New Polish Haul

These are a few bits that I bought a while back but haven't had chance to write about before now, I placed an order on Cosmetics Fairy on a Thursday, my parcel arrived on Monday morning, it was sent second class so I think that was a pretty good delivery time.   It arrived well packaged and all the polishes were as I expected.
The first part of my delivery were 3 Sally Hansen Insta Dri polishes, Chartreuse Chase, Jade Jump & Blue-Away, I chose them as the Insta Dri polishes are meant to be great for stamping with and these pastel shades are different to anything else I have.  I'll report back once I've tried them out.

Next up, a brand I had never heard of - Hedy's ma.nish.ma. - it turns out these are US releases which could explain why I have never heard of them before, again there are 3.  Way Out Fuchsia, Beyond Opal & Blaster.  All three are labelled 'holographic' but they aren't, they are in fact duochromes.
Blaster seems to be a close dupe for Sally Hansen DVD and Way Out Fuchsia is very similar to Sally Hansen Bite.  I think Beyond Opal is similar to a Kiko polish I have but I'll need to dig it out to check which number.
I think these polishes will look best over other colours, they are not very opaque on their own and I think they'd all need at least 4 coats to avoid a visible nail line but they look like they have the potential to be gorgeous over other cream polishes.
Finally I also got Sally Hansen Hard as Nails in Lavender Envy, this is another sheer duochrome polish which I think will be gorgeous over creams.

The prices on these polishes were excellent, over all the order came to under £10 which for 7 polishes is a pretty good deal!  Hopefully I'll get a chance to try them all out soon and post some NOTD photos including them.  Which is your favourite?
