Tip Top Nails Funfair Madness, Get Reddy, Hot Fudge and Jitterbug Lime Reviews and Swatches

I can't believe it's Monday already, time is going by way to quickly! Today I have some polishes from Tip Top Nails to share. Tip Top Nails' polishes are vegan and 4 free (Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP and Camphor). They have a wide selection of colors and products, I only wish they were easier to obtain in the states!

Tip Top Nails Funfair Madness is a vampy purple with a blue duochrome. All nails are 2 coats of Funfair Madness with no top or base coat.
The color of this polish is beautiful! It was a little hard picking up some of these polish's complete color with my camera, but I promise if you love purples like I do you won't be disappointed with this color! The added blue makes the polish "glow" and doesn't over power the purple base. Formula was excellent, if I was a little heavier handed I probably could have gotten away with 1 coat. It dried super quick and had a shiny finish with no top coat. 
Get Reddy is a blue based red with pink shimmer. I used 1 heavier coat than normal with no top coat and a base coat of Tip Top Nails Maxi Growth Base Coat.  
Although the photos don't show it, I did have a little visible nail line but it wasn't something that bothered me enough to add another coat. Formula was again excellent; it dried quickly, was perfect consistency and needed no top coat. Even though I'm normally not a fan of reds, this polish having a blue based red color and the pink shimmer won me over! ;)
Hot Fudge is a frosty taupe color. With one coat of polish, I achieved this color and I used no top or base coat. 
 Formula of Hot Fudge was a little thin and runny, despite it having a great color payoff. Be careful to try to not flood your cuticles with this polish because it is a bit of a pain cleaning up. Shimmer was all of my fingers as soon as a small amount of acetone came in contact with the polish. It did dry quickly but still showed brush strokes once dried. I'm not sure how I feel about the color, it's not something I would normally wear because I'm not a huge fan of frosts or taupe colors.
Jitterbug Lime is a frosty lime green. All nails are 2 coats of Jitterbug Lime with no base or top coat.
The formula of this polish was a little thin, though not as thin as Hot Fudge. It did dry quickly and with no top coat had a soft feel once dried, as opposed to being shiny. My camera didn't pick it up, but this polish does leave a slight brush stroke look even when dry. The color is a lot of fun and is a nice bright green perfect for summer or even for the upcoming holidays! I used it previously for a base color to Jindie Nails Holly (post here).
