Collection Lasting Gel Colour Polish

Today's NOTD is another new release. Every brand going seems to have brought out a gel-like nail polish range, and Collection is the latest to join the club. Being a big fan of the Barry M Gellys and Maybelline's Color Show, I had to give these a go to see how they compared. There are 15 shades in the range which slightly disappointed me compared to shade range offered by the likes of Barry M and Maybelline as they all strike me as a little boring. Anyway, I chose Watermelon, the only shade that really caught my eye. 
Watermelon is actually the most gorgeous pink I own. I'm not the biggest pink fan but this has a touch of coral which makes it so pretty and I really have fallen in love with it. I might be disappointed with some of the other shades, but this one is gorgeous. The brush is perfect too, just wide enough to give easy application in one sweep. I did have to use three coats as I wanted a really bright colour but the finish is perfect, no lines and really shiny. 
I can see this being one of my summer favourites and as much as I like Barry M they don't have any pinky shades I love as much as this one. It did last well too, three days and no chipping, which is good on my nails. I am really impressed with Watermelon and I really do hope Collection bring out some more interesting shades as the formula and brush are great.

Collection Lasting Gel Polish can be bought here from Boots for £3.19 (surprisingly slightly more than the Gellys and Colour Show at £2.99). Have you tried any of the Collection Lasting Gel Polishes?
