A little while ago these Collection 2000 Hot Looks polishes were all over the blogosphere, and true to form, it;s taken me a couple of years to get round to reviewing the one and only one that I have. Named after 80s cult classics such as Button Moon, Dynasty, Wham and Hoola Hoop, the most popular of the range (which I believe is still widely available) is this one, BMX Bandit.
I’ve never really tested out much in the way of Collection 2000’s offerings. I know their glitter gel liners are nice but I have to be honest, I generally stroll past the stand in Superdrug. I don’t even really know how this one came my way – I think I bought it when I was putting together some party bags for a hen do I was organising and selfishly decided that this one was too pretty to give away.
BMX Bandit is a bright and pigmented lavender creme. For a cheap polish, I was really impressed at the coverage that I got from this. This is two coats and I think it looks lush and shiny and all the good things that you want a creme polish to be. It’s certainly bright and eyecatching.
The snob in me isn’t really a fan of the bottle. I don’t like the shape, the handle, the typeface. None of it really. It looks cheap, but then again it IS cheap (£1.79) so I don’t really know what I’m complaining about.
I had to take the photos with a flash on to ensure full colour accuracy. I You can see from the red streaking on the bottle here that this does lean towards the purple side of blue. Sadly, I also think it gives me a touch of the lobster hands. Pretty though, isn’t it?

This is a beautiful shade of polish. Looks fantastic on you. Reminds me of another polish. Couldn’t tell you which one because I never remember the names of polish.
