U-Neek Polish Winter Collection Review Pt 2

Hello everyone! I'm just going to jump right on into part 2 of the U-Neek Polish review today! So here it goes, I hope you enjoy it! 
Just in case you missed part 1 from yesterday you can check that out here.

Chimney: It's described as having a deep red base with red sparks.


All photos of Chimney are shown as 2 coats topped with 1 coat SV.



This red had strong orange undertones making it more of a brick red or kind of copper. It's a perfect cool weather color and I'm really happy with how well it goes with my skin tone!



Application was excellent. There was no dragging, pooling or flooding. Like the ones I reviewed yesterday, it was very forgiving, when I touched up my tips, as well.  It was quite opaque requiring only 2 coats.


Meet Me At Midnight: A dark blue polish.


All photos of Meet Me At Midnight are shown with 3 coats topped with 1 coat of SV.



This color is so pretty, I had a difficult time showing it's true beauty on in the pictures. The color, while all the time staying blue with the tiniest hint of purple, shifts from light to dark depending on the light and angle.



The bottle shots don't do this shade justice and it its a perfect example of why we can't judge a polish by it's bottle. Application was, again, excellent. This color did require 3 coats to make it completely opaque, it is a bit more sheer than Chimney.


Hustle & Bustle: A dark green base with white & red matte squares and light blue & fuchsia hexes.


All photos of Hustle & Bustle are shown with 3 coats topped with 1 coat Glitter Food and 1 coat Mega Shine.



I will be perfectly honest, I am not a big fan of the metallic like bases with the glitter, I have said this before. This one really didn't change my mind on that. I tired to like this, I really did. It's just that these type of polishes tend to leave your nails extremely textured and I have a hard time with texture. I know it's a fad right now so many of you may like this polish! It just isn't my cup of tea. 



The formula on this one is extremely thick, it even states that in the listing. I didn't use undies, but maybe I should have to cut back on the glitter. It needed 3 coats for the base color to become completely opaque, but the more coats you apply the more glitter is put on the nail., and this is a glitter bomb so you end up with a lot! My suggestion is to add a few drops of thinner and use green undies, U-Neek Polish Evergreen would work well as undies for this. Make sure to use a good thick top coat like Glitter Food to try and smooth it out if you aren't into textured finishes.


Winter Breeze: A silver base with silver sparks.


All photos of Winter Breeze are shown with 2 coats topped with 1 coat of SV.



This frosty silver does have some silver sparks as stated but they are very subtle. I really like silver polishes and this one is quite pretty.



Only 2 coats were needed to give full coverage. The formula was excellent with this shade like the first 2 in this review, as well as forgiving. 


Overall I like this set because of easy application, great coverage and some really unique combinations!
U-Neek polish can be purchased on Etsy here. The prices range from $5-$8 for a full size and $4 for minis.

    1. Those 2 are beautiful, even more so in real life. You know some people are really into those bases for glitter. I don't quite get it though, they are kind of hard to work with.

    1. That's exactly why I was excited to do this review. I think glitters are pretty and I myself LOOOOOVE glitter but I know some prefer just polish most of the time. It's nice to see Indie makers do more than glitters. :)
