A.K.A Soft Mink Nail Polish

AKA Mink Nail Polish

I’d never heard of the brand A.K.A before & I love trying new things so was thrilled when they asked if I wanted to try some makeup from their range. A.K.A are a UK based cosmetics brand that formed in 2011, the majority of their products are produced in the UK.

This nail polish in the shade Soft Mink* is a perfect winter shade. Its not too dark but still on the dusky side so looks pretty for daytime or if your going out in the evening. I think it would also make a great base colour to pair with a glitter topcoat (i love a bit of glitz).

I applied two coats and was surprised at how quickly each coat dried. I didn’t have to wait long at all and being as impatient as I am this is a good thing, as I always spoil my nails before they’ve had time to dry. The brush is quite thick and long which I like, the polish applied evenly too. I don’t own a colour like this so its a really nice addition to my stash!

If I had to attempt to describe the colour I would say it’s a lilac toned brown it has a pretty sheen to it but contains no glitter or shimmer. I am pleased with it and have worn it for a week solid. It lasted 4 days without chipping then I touched it up (do you do that instead of reapplying).

You get 14ml of product for £5 so these A.K.A polishes are very affordable. There are 12 shades to chose from and they all look pretty. I can highly recommend Soft Mink.

Let me know if you have used any A.K.A polishes or anything else form their range.

Products that are marked with an * have either been sent to me for my consideration or I’ve received at events. I’m under no obligation to review them on my blog. However if I do, the reviews are 100% my own.

    That is a gorgeous unusual colour, and also not heard of this brand before. I will keep an eye out for it! (And yes if I can get away with a touch up instead of full reapplication I will).

    I hadn’t heard of them till you mentioned them to me the other day but this colour is beautiful. I have a ciate polish and an Illamasqua colour that are very similar (and a nails inc mini I think) and it is my staple nude! It’s pretty perfect for me. It looks really glossy. Fast drying is always a bonus. Bed print nails anyone? Or the dreaded, oh, I just painted my nails and now I have to pee. If I have a nail polish that takes ages to dry and I really want to wear it, I cut out the middle awkwardness and just sit on the loo and paint my nails.. lol! I pee SO much so it makes sense really >.> Yeah, I’m strange. I’ll climb back in my hole now.. LOL!
