I was recently browsing through the shelves at Clicks when a Tip Top shade I didn’t recognise caught my eye. I soon realised one of the new collections they’ve been teasing us with for ages had been released! I managed to find all 6 polishes from the new Silence collection and I just had to show you.
Before we get to the pictures, I must apologise for anything strange looking with my thumb nail on the first few. I had a bad break and I tried to patch it – after the first few I realised it wasn’t working so well so I just shortened all my nails (so you’ll also see a change in nail shape halfway through the post!) At least you still get to see some beautiful polishes!
The formula of all of these polishes was fantastic – they went on smoothly. Some required two coats and others three but all of them were easy to work with. I’ll start off with my favourite of the bunch:
This is 3 coats of Champagne Whispers. It really is the perfect champagne colour. In the bottle it looked halfway between silver and gold but on the nail it pulled a little golder. I think the golden shimmer came across a lot more on the nail. This shade is like something halfway between a shimmer and a foil. It’s great because while it’s a more ‘acceptable’ colour, it’s also very beautiful and special. I even wore it for my graduation recently!Isn’t it lovely?
Next is the other one which stood out from the rest of the collection:This is two coats of Calm Before The Storm. The reason this is also a stand-out is that most of the others are much more pastel shades than this. I really love the colour on this one too. It’s also different from anything else I have in my collection, and I love how unique the shade is. Next up is Bits & Peaches:This is two coats. It’s a peach creme with a golden shimmer. Like most of the polishes in the collection, the shimmer was more visible in the bottle, but it added depth to the polish on the nail. This may not be the best polish for my skintone, but it is still very pretty and applied beautifully. After this, my nail shape changed, like I mentioned at the beginning of the post. But there are still three more beauties to see!This is three coats of Cool as a Cucumber. I really, really like this one. It may not be the best for my skin tone either, but I don’t care! It’s pretty! Again, the shimmer gives depth but doesn’t really appear on the nail. This one had a very slight pearly finish, but not too much. The last two were a bit more pearly in finish, which definitely means they’re not for everyone! When I first saw the finish I was a little disappointed but I ended up liking them – I don’t have anything else like them. This is two coats of Breath of Fresh Air. It is very pretty and I love the pastel shade, but again, the finish might not be for everyone. Like a few of the others, the shimmer was more evident in the bottle but translated to depth on the nail. The final one in the collection is A Brush of Lilac. This is three coats. To me this is more of a pink while the previous one was more of a lilac. This one has the most pearlescent finish of them all. I know some may not like it, but I did like the unique finish. The colour is very pretty and girly. So, what do you think of this collection? See any you like? Tip Top has been teasing with a few more collections to come out soon and I can’t wait to see the next one!
