Handmade Nail Polishes – Shimmer & Glitter Edition.
It has been quite some time since I showed some of our polishes, and they’ve been steadily mounting up during that time. Here is the lot I have to swatch!
That’s a lot of fun right there. I’ll break it down into separate parts though, as no one wants to spend a million years looking through all that, including me! These ones are the shimmer polishes with glitter 🙂 No base or top coat on any of these, and the bases and most of the dyes and pigments came from Beautyworld Australia.
Winter When Autumn Leaves – burnished orange shimmer with gold, red and copper hexes.
2 coats, nice formula. I’d love a few more glitters in it, so they distribute a bit more evenly, but I’ll remedy that in the weekend. 😀
Red Shirt – plummish-red shimmer with red and gold circle glitter, and silver and gold multi-sized holographic glitter.
2 coats, nice formula, easy to get a good coverage of glitters.
Brown Trousers – auburn brown, slight holographic shimmer which adds a grey tone as well – red and gold circle glitters and gold flakes.
2 coats shown here…
I enjoy the addition of the sprinkling of holographic powder.
Fog People – smokey grey with gold and silver holographic glitters of different sizes.
Slightly sheer, but means that the glitters aren’t buried in this one. 3 coats
I love this polish!
Sunny Day Rain – sheer pale blue with blue circle glitter, gold, silver and copper glitter (including holographic) and large holographic gold rectangles.
Very thick, but if I thin it, the glitter will probably all sink to the bottom in a slow and terrible way. 2 coats above, then layered 1 coat over 1 coat of Kleancolor Sea Ice.
I did have to fish for the large golds, but could get them out without deep sea dredging.
Blue in a China Glaze bottle – Mid blue shimmer, with blue circles and turquoise shreds.
2 coats, very easy to apply, fast drying.
Pretty Pickle – sheer green base, large matte green hexes, small holo lime hexes, teeeny tiny emerald flakes.
3 coats, was pretty much opaque in three. Would also be nice to layer over a base colour.
Rime of the Ancient Mariner – this is my Sister V’s polish, based on these lines from the poem: I won’t say what’s in it, or she’ll have to kill me. 😉
