Collection (2000) New Summer Nail Polishes

Saturday, June 23, 2012


Collection 2000 have recently re-branded themselves as simply "Collection"
but that will take a while to be fully instated and if they keep releasing new shades with 
the old branding it will take even longer!

Anyway there is a few new shades in the Hot Looks line for the summer season all of which are bright and
attention seeking, I bought five shades which you can see below with a brief colour description of each.


55 Bright Lights - This is a reddened coral shade that is intense and dries slightly more orange tinged 
than it appears in the bottle. Bright Lights requires two coats to be come opaque and settles to a crème
finish. A really pretty shade that will sizzle with a tan.


56 Electric Dreams - What would summer be without a few turquoise shades in your stash? Boring that's what! Electric Dreams is a slightly deeper blue base turquoise than most turquoise polishes I own but none the less it is a lovely shade that only required one coat for full coverage and again a crème formula. 
I can imagine I will more than likely use this as a toe nail shade.


57 Neon Art - I'm a little disappointed in this shade, with a name like Neon Art I'd expect the colour contained inside to be blindingly bright and most certainly neon but instead this polish is more of a crème raspberry pink than it is neon...shame really!
This shade require three coats to become opaque and the first coat was a little streaky.


58 Go Retro! - This is my favourite of the bunch, a lovely vivid purple that is deep yet vibrant.
As with all the shades in the range this is a crème formula but sadly it did require three coats to become fully opaque and can be a little streaky on the first few coats but a show stopping colour none the less.


59 Look at Me - An acid green that is equally as yellow as it is green. I don't really favour this type of shade as it doesn't work with my skin tone but on deeper tones it will be quite magical. I may try this one once I return from my holiday and have a tan but we shall see. 
Again a crème formula and two coats for the full nail coverage.

I really like the size (8ml) and generally the formula - it can be a little hit and miss,
of the Hot Looks polishes by Collection (2000). They are a great size for travelling or trying out a shade
that you wouldn't normally, not to mention they are a snip at £1.69 each.

You can purchase Collection (2000) Hot Looks polishes at most Collection (2000) retailers such as
Superdrug and Boots stores but some also check out chemist stores and your local supermarket.

  7. Bright Lights and Look at Me look awesome! I've no idea why they rebranded...they should have expected it wouldn't stick, even if they did think it would freshen their image. Definitely not helped by old branding!

    1. I really couldn't agree more, surely some new funky packaging would have been suffice I don't think dropping the 2000 was necessary. Haha yes why rebrand but still use the old bottles...uber confusing!

  10. I've had some great colours from this range, and also some that have been awful and chipped really fast. Good job they're only £1.69! Go Retro is the prettiest of this bunch.

    1. I hope they sort out the formula as you said when it's good it's great but when it's poor when frankly it's not worth applying.
