S-he Glitters&Neons collection

Hi, girls! You can't imagine, how excited I was, when I saw, that S-he released polishes with flakies. I think they're dupes of Models Own Splash collection, because judging by the swatches they look very similar. I read many reviews and people didn't really like Models Own collection because of bad formula and my opinion about S-he collection is not better at all. 
I think collection is called Glitters&Neons (at least that was written on a cardboard). There were 4 polishes with flakies and 8 other colors. I took 3 colors with flakies, because I'm not a fan of pink color, and a green neon shade. Although I do like the color of the flakies, they look amazing in the bottle, let me tell you about the formula first, which was a real dissapointment.


These polishes had very thick formula, which was hard to apply and flakies almost didn't stay on nails. I had to dab them on nails, but that was a bad idea, because this caused bubbles. If I applied top coat over it, there were even more bubbles. Then I decided to add a thinner into them. Well, I had to use a lot of thinner, before I was satisfied with formula. After using thinner polishes went smoothly on, but flakies were still hard to apply. If I dabbed them, bubbles still appeared. Instead of that I used tweezers. Well, applying flakies with tweezers isn't that easy either, but it went better than with dabbing and there weren't any bubbles.


First I made swatches on a nail wheel and later also on nails. Upper 2 photos are without top coat and lower with top coat. Top coat smooths the surface and it doesn't effect on flakies, so that they would reflect their duochrome color less or something, but it causes more bubbles (at least, if you dab flakies or if you use thicker coat of a top coat, which I always do with glittery polishes. Maybe I should try with 2 thin coats next time). 


I made a swatch of S-he 006 on a nail wheel, before I added a thinner. I was making a video about this collection and I wanted to show the difference between original formula and formula, watered with thinner (you can find video in the end of this post). Thicker formula had coloured base, but it was less visible, after I used thinner. On a nail wheel I used 2 coats of S-he polish with flakies on a bare nail and also 2 coats over a coloured base. Where I dabbed flakies on a nail, the bubbles went crazy (you can see that with blue flakies on a bare nail). Too bad because of the formula, because flakies look amazing.


When I was doing swatches on nails, I already learned, how to apply them. I used one thin coat of a S-he polish over a cream polish and then tweezers to apply flakies randomly on nails. It happened really really rarely, that I manage to apply flakies with a brush on nails. 

S-he 006 has flakies, that reflect from green to gold and orange. Unfortunately the green color of flakies isn't that visible on nails. As a base I used Essence BBC Orange Sunset. Swatches are made with top coat.


S-he 007 has silver flakies, that also reflect blue and a bit of green. As a base I used Bourjois In the Navy. Swatches are made with top coat. 


S-he 008 has flakies, that reflect a lot of green and a bit of purple and blue. As a base I used Essence Tipi-Ya-Yeah. Swatches are made with top coat. Here I used a bit thicker coat of a top coat and as you can see, bubbles went crazy.


The last polish is S-he 003, a neon green shade. This one also has a dissapointing formula, because it's very sheer. I thought I'll need 3 coats for it, when I was filming a video, but when I was doing swatches on nails, I actually needed 4 coats to make it opaque. On my ring finger I used 2 coats over white polish. Beside that this formula is also watery, so I had to apply thin coats, otherwise I had it all over my cuticles. It drys matte.


And here's a video, I made in Slovene (it was filmed, before I did swatches on nails).



S-he polishes contain 10 ml and cost 2,5 €. The price is not high, but I'm not sure, any of these polishes is worth the money. If you'll use a thinner with flakies, the formula will be much better and polish will be easier to apply, but flakies still won't stay on nails (you'll have to dab them or use tweezers). 003 is very pretty color, but I have neon shades, that are opaque in less coats. My favourite green neon shade Ruby Kisses Tropical Green needs only 2 coats. So, if you're in the mood to play with these flakies and apply them with tweezers, get them, otherwise stay away from them. Flakies are really amazing, but formula not so much.

What do you think about this collection? Have you try any of these polishes? Did they dissapoint you too or you liked them? Thank you for reading!

  1. Sem jih že gledala v dm, pa zdaj vidim da dobro da jih nisem vzela... škoda, da so tako slabi za nanašat, sem se veselila da smo končno dobili par novih barv flakies... zadnji, zelen lak, je pa zelo lep, samo 4 sloji mene takoj odbijejo :/

    1. Res škoda za formulo, ker drugače so krasni. :(
      Ja, sem bila presenečena, da sem potrebovala 4. Sem ga dala na noge in tam so bili dovolj 3-je.

  2. You know I've been waiting for these swatches bacause I was so amazed with the flakies! They all look georgeous (you've done here great combos, Taya!) but I wish there were more flakies on the nails :(

    1. They are amazing, but unfortunately so hard to apply, I had to use tweezers, otherwise there would be a lot of bubbles or no flakies at all. :(

  3. They are so pretty but if I need to do so much to make them work I'll pass. They look super pretty though :)

    1. I think it's better to pass them, if you don't want to spend to much time with their application.

  5. They look pretty in the bottle but I was afraid that they would be too sheer and hard to apply. I think I will pass.
    Thanks for the review!

    1. These polishes are for layering, otherwise there wouldn't be any color. But yes, application was pita. It was better, after I used thinner, but still, flakies didn't stay on nails.

  6. Cak i ako dodje mislim da cu preskocit ove lakove, prekrasno izgledaju u bocici, ali nisam sigurna da mi se da mucit s mjehuricima i nanosenjem flejkija s nekim cudesima XD

    1. Žal formula tudi s thinnerjem ni nič boljša, v smislu nanosa flakijev. Pogrešam nadlake kot je Essence Dance nadlak, ki se res božansko nanaša in ima prečudovite krpice.

    1. Če se ti ne da zafrkavati s formulo, je es boljše, da jih en kupiš.

  12. I was considering buying these but seeing this I think that I'll skip them since I am not impressed with fishing for flakies nor the fact you have to use thiner to get decent formula since I can't buy thiner anywhere in my area. :(

    1. Mislim da bi Iris u Minceti trebao imat OPIjev thinner, znam da sam ga jednom tamo vidjela, samo treba dobro pogledat, prodavacice uopce ne znaju sto je to, znam da su meni rekle da oni ne drze to dok sam ja gledala u doticni thinner >.<

    2. Če imaš dostop do Müllerja kje blizu, poglej na stojalo Misslyn, oni imajo thinner v taki beli steklenički. Če ga nikjer ne najdeš, pa piši meni in ti ga jaz priskrbim. :) In kot pravi Lendoxia, OPI bi ga tudi moral imeti. Pa kaka Zoya, pa na ebayu ga po moje tudi najdeš kje. :)
