P2 Sand Style – Dreamy

Ah, those of you that have been around these parts know that I love I good textured polish.  Even more than that, I adore a P2 Sand style polish!  Completely adore them.  This one is one of the newer ones and its called Dreamy.  Lets look at some pictures!

This is two coats over a base of Essence Anti Nail Split Sealer.  Its a lovely sea green, with a duochrome hint.  Formula was good, easy to work with and fast to dry.  Care is needed as you can ding it whilst its drying but once its dry its rock rock hard.

P2 is a German brand, you can visit the collection here. I am not sure if its available anywhere else, but I do love them so very much and I’m fortunate to have to buddy in Germany to keep me furnished with them!  (Thank you Lindz!)

P2 Sand Style – Classy

Hello everyone, hope everything is going your way and that you had an excellent weekend!!  I’ve got another one of the wonderful P2 Sand Style polishes that was sent to me by the lovely GirlintheGlasses.  As you may recall from previous posts here, here and here that I am a little bit obsessed.

This is one of the new editions, either dark and wintery and mysterious, or pale and beguiling…..

Today I have the black one from the collection, known as Classy and its a stunner!

As we know with textured polishes, no top coat is required unless you want a glassy and shiny finish.  I used two coats of Classy in the images about.  I let it dry well between coats because otherwise I do find it is much easier to dent and knock pieces off.  The brush to average, very similar to Barry M, although these bottles are slighter more square.  I love that the colour caps match the polish within, I thought it might have bugged by OCD in my storage, but no, its actually rather delightful.

Fomula was great, smooth to apply and easy to work with.  It didn’t flood or puddle in my cuticles which is always a bonus.  It is black with blue and darker pink accents within it it.  I suppose its very similar in its colour way to ButterLONDON’s Black Knight but textured.  And as a girl who has a lot of black polish, its nice to have some variants!

I’m still loving texture, and as we will see this week, my obsession is getting a bit out of hand……..  P2 seems to only be available in Germany and nearby countries, although I have seen an odd bottle on eBay.  If you know of any other places to pick them up online, do let me know.

P2 Sand Style – Lovesome

I have a lovely P2 polish to show you today, I was helped in acquiring this from my lovely polish buddy Girlintheglasses (do visit her lovely blog) and its just lovely.  I am so IN LOVE with these P2 polishes there are no words to express my love.

This is Lovesome.  A pinky red rippled with silver-gold shimmer and it sparkles!

What you see above is two thin coats over a base coat of G & G Stuck on Blu!  Like all textured polishes, you don’t need a top coat.  Formula on this was excellent, it covered the nail well and the brush picks up just the right amount of polish.  Very happy camper here!  First coat dries pretty quickly, but I did wait a little longer than usual to prevent accidental denting of the polish.

I seriously love these, a great price point and definitely great value for money. I’ve seen the odd one knocking about on eBay but do let feel free to share your hot spots for this range in the comments below.  And as always let me know what you think.
