Killer Colours Firewater

Hi Everyone,

I Thought id review a polish that I'm not sure gets talked about a lot compared to other nail brands, This is Firewater by Killer Colours. I picked this up at the Clothes Show Live at the start of December, Kinda recognising the name but the poster of Millie Mackintosh drew me in!
 I knew Millie Mackintosh is a big fan of these Nail Polishes and I love Milly so I just had to give them a try. Charlotte Tilbury is also a fan!
I only picked up the one from the very small stand at the Clothes Show, I wasn't too sure what to expect, I have since found out though that Killer Colours only release small collections one at a time, These Collections tie into the current fashion trends and statements of the season, Quite a clever idea I think!
Firewater is a deep Raspberry/ Red Wine shade, Which I think is always a classic during the winter months, Its inspired by the A/W 2012 Catwalks of names such as Gucci, DKNY and Viktor and Rolf.
It is extremely Glossy and Killer Colours add no Toluene, DBP, Formaldehyde aka the Big 3! I found this shade was extremely pigmented just after one coat, I wasn't going to add a second at first. I found it also dried quite quickly and the brush isn't too big or too thin.
However I do have a lot of similar shades so I thought id compare them:

Swatches (Left to Right:) Killer Colours Firewater (One Coat), Killer Colours Firewater (Two Coats), Nails Inc Victoria (Two Coats), Barry M Red Wine (Two Coats), Barry M Red Black (Two Coats).
The closest match I could find is Barry M Red Black at a 3rd of the price at £2.99, It still isn't a exact match to Firewater though.
Nails Inc Victoria is also very similar but a bit more expensive at £11.
Killer Colours can be found here and Retail for £9, Which I think is rather good!
Have you tried Killer Colours? Do you love them too?
