Chelsea! Cheap, HTF and Hotter Than Hell!

Chelsea Time Zone, Polynesia Isle, Margarita Mix & Psycho Green

Oyyy. How in the hell is it Monday? And why do I feel more hung over today than I did on Sunday morning when I really was hung over? Lucky I did up these swatches a while ago or I would have nothing to talk about!

Mmmm. Chelsea polishes are niiiice. I first mentioned them in this post but now I have more! So it’s time to write about them again! Yes! How exciting!

If there’s one party that Chelsea Polishes can rock like few others, it’s the duochrome. Holy crapsticks this is awesome. Time Zone made its way to me recently as a part of a very generous swap and it surprised the pants off me. I’d never actually seen this one before, but if I had it would have been on my wishlist!

The colour shifts from copper to red to the slightest beginnings of fucshia! How!!? That’s just amazing! On top of that, it’s also got the weirdest formula. It’s a shimmery jelly. I’ve never come across a jelly shimmer before. But I think I like it! NO! I KNOW I like it! HAWT.

Yet another fab duochrome from Chelsea – Polynesia Isle. I’ve been lusting after this bebe for quite some time. It arrived with Time Zone and I was floored when I swatched it. It was everything I hoped it would be. The green gold, through to yellow, all the way to copper.

Will you gettaload of that? So shimmery and perfect. It’s gold, but it works on me. Well at least I think it works on me. I don’t really care what anyone else thinks!

Chelsea Margarita Mix

Now even with a brand of epic win like Chelsea, not everything can be a success. There’s nothing at all wrong with Margarita Mix. Not that I can see at all – I would put this fail down to operator error. I’m sure someone who was better with neons or cremes would do a better job of making this polish look gorgeous, because it is – and my swatch does it absolutely no justice. The bottle itself looks so pretty! I just wish I could get that on my nails. Maybe I need more practice.

Chelsea Psycho Green

Yeah. Okay. You can all pick yer jaws up off the floor now. Please wipe up the puddles of drool as you leave. Thanks.

Totally understandable. Psycho Green is by far my favourite Chelsea polish. It’s incredible! Smooth, deep, dark emerald velvet with the teensiest bit of blue shimmer. Genius. I bow down to thee polish creator-person who works for Chelsea. You deserve a round applause, a hearty meal, my undying adoration and a Spatula.

Quality wise, Chelsea is bang for your buck. If you can find them. Generally my sources have only found these at “dusties”. Old dusty nail salons with ancient, long forgotten brands. I don’t know if they are still in production but what I do know is that if you look hard enough, they are still around and they are usually pretty cheap to boot!

The colours are wonderfully pigmented and the formula good, and the duochromes…. dudes prepare for your mind to be blown! I wonder what other Chelsea treasures are out there just waiting to be discovered? :hrmm:

  • I may or may not be a bit behind on your posts! I enjoy them so much, though, that I find myself continuing to read until I hit the bottom of the page. So I’ll be spamming a little bit!
    Chelsea polishes are mythic. I’ve been hearing about them forever and can’t seem to ever stumble across them! Shame, really.
    These are all gorgeous! And I’d have to say that Psycho Green is infamous, for good reason.
