Product Rave – Accessorize Illusion Nail Polishes

L-R: Bronze, Aztec, Pink Spice, Purple Dream, Mermaid

These are brilliant. Simply bloody brilliant. I just can’t begin to describe to you how much I love these polishes! Definite new drugstore favourite.

They cost £4 each and just have the most gorgeous duochrome finishes. As you should probably know by now, Aztec is a perfect dupe for Mean and Green, and Pink Spice is a good dupe for Bad Fairy – both released by MAC as part of the Venomous Villians collection last year.

Take a look at some slightly bigger swatches. I promise you these aren’t edited at all, just taken outside on a moderately overcast day. They are honestly this delicious! They all take 3 coats to look perfect but each coat dries quickly and it’s so worth it.

Bronze, Aztec, Pink Spice

Purple Dream, Mermaid

Did you miss out on the MAC nail polishes? Did you get the MAC ones and absolutely hate them because the quality was so appalling? Do you just think Aztec and Pink Spice are gorgeous and want them anyway, regardless of any MAC similarities?

Oh good, then you’re in luck :) I bought an extra of Aztec and Pink Spice for you guys to win. There’ll be two winners, one polish each. To qualify, please tell me below the reason you first started following Do Not Refreeze. I’d love to know :) open worldwide, by the way. I’ll pick two winners on the 1st of Feb. Good luck!

But anyway… go out and buy some of these polishes. You won’t regret it.

  1. Those are amazing!! Sometimes I wish I didn’t live in the US!! lol!!

    I started following your blog because I saw it posted on a blogger award as a blog they loved! I’m so glad I check it out…i’ve loved all of the posts i’ve read and I can’t wait for more! <3


  2. purple dream looks gorgeous too!

    The reason why I first started following your blog..oh my gosh..that was a while ago. I’m sure it was because of your make up looks.
    I’m still very new at make up and I loved your looks and your tutorials and you made them so easy to follow. your pictures were alsoso very clear. I also followed you because of your unique nail designs/ art and I loved seeing the nail swatches =)


  3. Ah I’ve been lusting after these for so long!

    I first started following after finding you through another blogger, I forget who now sorry, but I saw your nail art and was hooked, I completely ignored my husband all that evening reading through your blog! x

  4. I’ll admit it, I think I started following your blog when you launched a giveaway (at least I’m honest! :) ), and then I stayed because I like the tone of your articles, and you have delicious ideas.

    I won’t enter your veru very nice giveaway because I already have these two little Accessorize wonders, and it wouldn’t be fair to others (even if a backup bottle of something as wonderful as this is always appreciated ;) ), but I wanted to say hello :)
    Have a great day!

  5. I really want to try these!,

    I think i found your blog through someone else’s , although i’m not sure who now and i fell in love with your amazing nail art and just liked your posts in general. :)

  6. Ah mah gaaah. You just made me want to buy all of them! I love ‘Purple Dream’, it’s so unique and gorgeous. Must find my bottle!

    I think I found you linked to on somebody else blog and was in ‘OH WOW A UK BLOG!’ mode haha. Eitherway, Do Not Refreeze is one of my fave blogs now!

  7. I LOVE Pink Spice.

    I followed your blog because I think your nail tutorials are absolutely amazing. I used to work in a food restaurant and I wasn’t allowed to wear nail polish so when I left, I thought to myself “you know what, I’m going to go crazy”. I searched for nail polish tutorials on YouTube and never really found what I was looking for – but then one of my friends recommended you! It’s safe to say I fell in love with you and this blog after seeing your tutorials and reviews. You’ve even inspired me to do some of my own!

  8. Hi I’m pleased you like the Accessorize range, I’ve bought a couple of their polishes and have been pleased with the quality. I think I started following you as you were won of the first people to follow my blog and left a lovely comment. Since then I’ve enjoyed your posts and especially those when you recommended other blogs to read too. xx

  9. Oooh I love the first three! Unfortunately I’ll have to go to England to get some, they don;t sell them here :(.

    The reason I started following you was that I stumbled upon your blog and found the quality of your posts high enough to add you to the list ;)!

    My e-mail is

  10. I have the Storm polish from the Je T’aime line. OMG it’s so bad! First coat went on patchy and then the second coat just didn’t happen. Was so disappointed :( Clearly the Illusion line is the way to go!

  11. I don’t quite remember, it was a loooong time back :D but it was because of your super cool nail design posts for sure!
