Polish Envy Swatches & Review!

Hi guys!

Today on the blog I have some beautiful polishes from the Melbourne based polish company, Polish Envy. 

They contacted me to try some of their polishes and I was really excited to, since I love Australian polish and supporting Australian companies, plus I had never heard of the brand before and I love trying new companies to test formulas and quality.

I got sent 4 frosted shimmer polishes to review from Polish Envy that are the perfect shades for Easter and spring, so let's get to the swatches!

Bettie Pain Polish - Bowie Collection Swatches & Review

Hi guys,

Today on the blog I have the new Bowie Collection from the Australian artisan brand Bettie Pain Polish. Personally I think the best Indie polishes are the ones from Australia, but I may be bias because I think we do most things better than the rest of the world ;)

David Bowie was a legend and an icon and inspired generations of 'misfits' and 'weirdos' to embrace their strange, and in doing so influenced some of the best new artists of our generation. I know Bowie was a huge influence to Megan, the creator of Bettie Pain Polish, so I knew how special this collection was to her and that it would be incredible.

I wasn't wrong. 

The polishes are so unique and gorgeous and their formulas are so easy to apply and self level like a dream! I only applied top coat to the first polish 'China Girl' as it dried with a slight textured finish, but all the other polishes have been photographed without top coat. They didn't need them!

Let's get right into the swatches!

Powder Perfect The Castle Collection Swatches & Review

Hi guys!

Today on the blog I have a swatch and review of the Powder Perfect The Castle Collection for you guys!

I just absolutely adore Jacinta's polishes so I am really excited to share these with you. If you haven't purchased any Powder Perfects for your polish collection already then you are missing an amazing and vital polish brand!

I had to swatch these twice as my original pictures got 'lost' but the polish is so easy to work with and opaque that it wasn't a big deal at all. Even the lighter pastel colours are opaque in 2 coats which is a huge plus when you are swatching.

Let's jump into the swatches!

Edgy Splatter Polish Nail Tutorial

Did you say Hello Kitty by OPI splatter Nails? Sounds like a great idea to me! 

To do these I used 4 of the Hello Kitty by OPI polishes. SO edgy and graphic without any tools or high skill level needed. Just make sure you give yourself a break between doing each hand or you may pass out from all that blowing. 

That's what she said. 

But seriously, I got a touch light headed by the time I moved to the other hand

This easy (and very messy) design is perfect for any skill level and all you'll need to do them is polish, a drinking straw and a peel off barrier or tape to help with clean up.

Powder Perfect Limited Edition Anniversary Trio Swatches & Review

Hello polish lovers!

Today I have something pretty awesome for you to feast your eyes on. The Powder Perfect Limited Edition Anniversary Trio. Holo. Chameleon. Glitter. All in one. Or three. It's like someone compiled all the best things about polish and put them into one collection. And it is perfect. Powder Perfect.

This amazing limited edition trio by Powder Perfect is to celebrate their 2nd anniversary. Powder Perfect is an Australian indie cosmetic company and create some of the most amazing polishes, especially their glitters. I had no idea they were an Aussie indie company, although their badass-ness should have given them away ;)

The 2nd Anniversary trio is obviously three shades. All three pay homage to the cosmos.

Let's get to the swatches!

Essie Australia Winter 2015 Collection Swatches & Review

Hi all!

Today on the blog I have the Essie Australia Winter 2015 Collection to show you all. These were released in Winter 2014 in the US so they're not 'super new' for the rest of the world, but since our Winter has only just started, it makes sense that they're released here later.

I had swatched these 3 weeks ago and then before I could move them off my phone, it crashed and I lost EVERYTHING. I am only just getting back on top of my 'to swatch again because I lost the photos' collection, but these were at the top of that list.

The first word that comes to mind when I see these colours is ROMANTIC!

They are the perfect colour collection for any event or situation and I think they are all a must have for any polish loving girl. The formula in every polish was amazing and opaque and the wider Euro/Aussie brush makes application a breeze. 

Sorry US branded Essie, your brush really sucks. Our brush totally wins!!

Below I have the full review of each shade.

Sideways Rainbow Gradient Nails! Yay!

Happy Friday! 

Have you guys got any plans for this weekend? I'm going to be busy busy busy. Not sure if that's good or bad though.. We will see, come Monday!

Today on the blog I have a full detailed post about these rainbow bad boys.

I love me a good gradient and a good rainbow, so why not join both together and have amazing fingertips!? And why not do it sideways since I've never gradient-ed that way before. Now I'm just talkin' craaaazy!!

I used a tonne of polishes for these. They're all listed below.
