Teresa can best be described as a deep purple toned ruby metallic.

Two more stunners, Harlow is one of the original matte velvets, this dries very fast so you cant take time to work it, these polishes were re-released in 2014 with a slightly better formula but not as much sparkle. Harlow has a good formula, no running or pooling and opaque in one coat but I did two because it showed up my ridges, Harlow does stamp but not onto paper.

Teresa is such an interesting colour, its a dusty mauve toned purple with a golden/pink shimmer, great formula, no running or pooling and opaque in one coat, Teresa also stamps.

First swatch pic shows Harlow stamped on Teresa and Harlow with a coat of topcoat to show the sparkle, then a pic of the shimmer in Teresa. The pic of the stamps for Harlow was taken through my Clear Jelly Sramper lol


  1. Teresa is okay but loving Harlow. I do like a good matte :-D

    1. Harlow does really look like velvet on your nails, I saw that Barry M have mattes, I might see if I can grab a couple :)
