Clio's Nail Styler Polishes! I really don't do any posts on nail polishes, although I do wear nail polishes quite frequently. Recently I cleared out my polish boxes which are two small boxes of polishes I've bought the last 5 years. I don't ever buy collections of polishes or sets so usually it's one bottle at a time but the last two years I've used so little polish that I had plenty of dried out polishes to get rid of. I never buy high end polishes so it doesn't hurt to do major clearing!
I never realized Clio had nail polishes but when I came across this range at Watsons at AMK hub I just so many shades that screamed out at me to buy them!
Continue below for the review!

I think for a drugstore brand Clio really has nice packaging. These polish bottles look of medium fanciness to me and I think the slick design of the name really is complementary to these bold and gorgeous shades. I do like the shape of these bottles although they are more bulky side ways than other bottles which are round or more square.
The brush of this polish is exactly the same shape of Essie's nail polish but slightly smaller in width. A problem I had with every single shade I bought was that there was one or two bristles on the brush which were bent! I couldn't believe it! However without cutting them off I'm still able to paint the polish on flawlessly without any problem.
|Clio Nail Styler Polish in Glitz Jade! A stunning deep cool toned shimmery jade that I HAD TO HAVE. I don't really love greens unless their cool toned. This is beautiful and although bold still looks super subtle until it catches the light!|
|Clio Nail Styler polish in Tropical Mint! My first true creamy mint shade! It's exactly what it looks like in the bottle, a perfect creamy glossy finish slightly more teal toned mint! LOVE IT!|
|Clio Nail Styler polish Disco Red! A seriously stunning bold shade, as neon and bold as Disco Blue! It's a deep hot red toned fuchsia pink that's full of iridescent blue toned shimmer!|
|Clio Nail Styler polish in White! My first white nail polish in like 6 years! My first white polish was a super cheapy one that I used a lot and then gave up on. This formula is exactly like tropical mint, creamy with a glossy finish!|
|Clio Nail Styler polish in Golden Peach! This shade is exactly what the names says, it's a super fine liquid golden peach, you need a good two coats or a beautiful liquid iridescent finish!|
These polishes are the reasons why I love asian brands of polishes and when I say that I think of brands like Skin Food, The Face Shop and Etude House. These polishes despite being a normal cream finish or a shimmery finish usually take only 1-2 coats to be fully opaque! This is the case with Clio. All the shimmery shades with exception of Golden Peach take 1 coat to be opaque! Even a thin coat is 90% opaque!
The cream finishes which are Tropical Mint and White are just stunning. Although there might seem to be a few brush lines right after application, they dry out to a completely smooth finish. The most important thing besides that these polishes look exactly like what you see in the bottle is that they are so long lasting.
These polishes can last up to 4-5 days chip free if you're not actively using your fingers doing dirty work or picking/opening things. It's amazing how freshly painted and how hardy this formulation is and I love it! In addition, something extra which I totally wasn't expecting is that these polishes are scented! They have a lovely sharp sweet fruity scent and it lasts for at least a good two days after painting!

Repurchase: YES! I already have! My first purchase was the first three shades, and then I bought the mint and the red and lastly I went back to get the white and golden peach! I do plan to get some of the more neutral/natural shades!
Recommend: Yes, if you love natural, colorful, fun or bold and glitzy glittery crazy shades Clio Nail Styler has a great line of polishes! I love polishes with such intensity, long wearing qualities and they are so easy to apply! The range is huge so do check them out!
Bottom line: Besides a bristle or two being bent on each brush, these polishes are phenomenal. Great color, great finish, dries quickly, sweet scent and so long wearing! I totally would love to collect more shades!
Would you like to have any of these nail polishes?
