In today's post I want to show you a couple of polishes from Accessorize's Speckle collection. I couldn't find any PR info on this collection so I'm guessing it came out in the last month or so. It's funny how I know when all the big brands like China Glaze or OPI release new collections but brands that are closer to home I don't have a clue about. Perhaps it's down to marketing budget or I'm just looking in the wrong places. Either way I'm glad I was made aware of this by one of the girls I follow on Instagram who took a snap of the display.
There are 7 polishes in this collection all named after winged insects and some of which look very familiar.
Damselfly - dupe of Nails Inc Pudding Lane and W7 Mosaic
Leopard Moth - dupe of W7 Salt 'n' Pepper
Firefly - dupe of Barry M Gold Mine
Butterfly - dupe of W7 Lava Flow
As you can guess I gave the above a miss, there's no room for dupes in my Helmer!
Now onto the more unique polishes from the range. Bumblebee - is a pumpkin orange creme with black glitter and would have been ideal for Halloween. It looked a little manky in real life so I put it back on the shelf.

Ladybird which caught my eye first is a raspberry jelly with black glitter. Two coats is enough to give great coverage although some care is required to place the black glitter. I do look like I've got ladybird-esque nails albeit Harlequin ones.
Dragonfly is a spring green laced with blue glitter. Again this only required 2 coats. I don't think I would wear this during the colder months but once Spring arrives I'll be pulling this out again.
