The weather has finally started acting like summer isn’t 6 months away, and I started pulling out the bright polishes the second we got sunshine. If you’re looking for a good set for the season, there’s a brand new Mark Summer 2014 “Nail This Look” Nail Laquer and Bracelets Set*.
The Mark Summer 2014 “Nail This Look” Nail Laquer and Bracelets Set comes with two mini polishes in bright pink and orange, along with a set of 4 bracelets. The bracelets are stretchable and come with two gold, an orange, and a blue all with rhinestones and matching the summery polishes.
The polishes in the Mark Summer 2014 “Nail This Look” Nail Laquer and Bracelets Set contain 2.7 mL so they are pretty mini, but despite that I actually found they had a nice brush and handle and I had no difficulty painting my nails like I do with some mini polishes. I don’t mind the smaller size with a polish collection as large as mine, as long as they aren’t annoying to use.
In terms of the quality of the polishes in the Mark Summer 2014 “Nail This Look” Nail Laquer and Bracelets Set, I was impressed. They are jelly neon shades that are sheer but quick drying, so I went for three thin coats when using them. I found that the polishes dried very quickly, so even with three coats it didn’t take long to apply. Like most neon shades, they do dry to a semi-matte finish, although you can always add a glossy top coat if you want to change that.
Although using the polishes in the Mark Summer 2014 “Nail This Look” Nail Laquer and Bracelets Set will leave a visible nail line, the shades are bright enough that it’s not really noticeable from a distance and instead you just get that nice squishy look of jelly polishes. The bracelets go well with the polishes and are also cute on their own, they are both small and stretchy enough that I think they would fit most wrists.
I have worn these shades a couple times now and not experienced any staining but I do recommend a good base coat regardless. Overall, I think the Mark Summer 2014 “Nail This Look” Nail Laquer and Bracelets Set is a cute little kit for summer and would also make a fun gift. I am definitely interested in trying more from Mark in the future!
Do you match your polish to your outfits? I never do, but I like how these bracelets aren’t too “matchy-matchy” with the polish, while still complimented it well.
