Nelly Polish - Gumpas

Hey Lovelies! (:

Sorry if this mani looks a bit messy, I speedily applied it on Saturday night just before going to sleep and then had to go over the tips today as they'd chipped a bit.

 I started with a base of 2true's 'Shade 11' which is also a beige/ nude polish. I needed to test this polish otherwise I would've used my go to beige, Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine 'Lychee'. Shade 11 is a slightly different shade to Gumpas but since Gumpas was very sheer, I decided to layer it over and I like how it finished slightly darker. 
I used two coats of Shade 11 to make it completely opaque, it applied nicely and the brush gave great coverage.

- Two thin coats of piCture pOlish 'Revolution' - £10 from Sally Magpies
- Two coats of 2true 'Shade 11' - £1.99 from Superdrug
- One coat of Nelly Polish 'Gumpas' - £6.50 from Nelly Polish or their Etsy store
- One coat of Seche Vite 'Fast Dry Top Coat' - £5.49 from Amazon

I then layered one coat of 'Gumpas' over the top of Shade 11, this also applied nicely. The glitter spread out lovely and I didn't have to do any fishing for the bigger green glitters which is always a plus ;)
Nelly Polish 'Gumpas' is a lovely jelly polish from the first Nelly Polish Collection called The Fungooms, it's a beige/ nude polish that has tiny black glitter, slightly larger white hexes and green hexes that are slightly larger than those. There is also small nude glitter in the polish which is generally overlooked since it blends in with the base polish.

Gumpas, the character the polish is base on.

Nelly Polish is a UK indie polish, and has been designed so that it can also be shipped outside of the UK with their dry mix/ dehydrated mixes. The first collection, The Fungooms is based on the lovely Hilary Tunley's husband Ned's hit childrens games which is available as an app or on the internet.
I received the already made up polishes for review, but Nelly Polish is available for delivery to other countries with their dry mix (Nelly Mixture) that allows for the receiver to make it up themselves. This mixture can either be in a sachet or pre-bottled. The sachet can be added to normal clear polish (any brand). 
"Nelly Mixture comes with mixing balls, exactly the right amount of pigment (natural mineral-based), suspension ingredient (to turn your clear nail polish into a base capable of suspending nice chunky glitter without sinking)"

Gumpas Nelly Mixture Sachet (Just a sachet of the 'Nelly Mixture' to add to your own clear polish) - £4
Gumpas Bottled Nelly Mixture  (Comes with a pre-labeled bottle to pour your own clear polish in to and the sachet of 'Nelly Mixture') - £5
Gumpas Nelly Polish (10ml) (Available for UK Delivery Only) - £6.50
(Plus Shipping Costs)
