NOTD - Barbara Daly at Tesco Aqua Shimmer

Disclosure - PR sample

Try as I might, I can't capture the stunning indigo-blue-teal duochrome of this polish. It's basically a lot of green-blue shimmer in a dark blue base, with some very subtle blue glitter. It's absolutely lovely. Far nicer than these pictures suggest, as the teal iridescence is much more prominent and eye-catching.

These pictures were taken after 4 days of wear. Apart from the usual tip-shrinkage which is a side effect of my Seche Vite topcoat, the finish is in mint condition. Huge thumbs up there! It applies fairly smoothly and was opaque in 3 coats - not stunning coverage but definitely acceptable, especially for a tiny £3 per 7ml.

Aqua Shimmer is part of the A/W collection from Barbara Daly Makeup. Here's a picture of it with a couple of others from the collection. It's mostly reds and wine shades, with the Aqua Shimmer providing a distinctive off-set. The collection was released on 1st of September, so it's hopefully in Tesco near you now!
