Hello strangers! If you follow me on Facebook you'll know I went on holiday for my birthday so that's why I've not been around much. The lead up to a holiday is always busy too so it's been a long break. But I'm back with some beautiful polishes AND a new nail shape!! I did love my previous shape however I found the corners broke off so easily and when I went away I broke so many corners off my nails that I decided it was the perfect opportunity to try almond. I've been admiring the lovely AJ's nails from Nail Lacquer UK for ages so she inspired me to give it a go. I have had them like this for a couple of days now and I love them, I hope you like them :)
So the beautiful polishes I have to show you today are from the UK indie brand Freckles Polish by Julieann. I love to support UK indies, so I couldn't wait to snap up some of her polishes after seeing some swatches being posted. As I've been short of time you'll notice that I have squoval nails for 2 of these polishes as they were taken at different times.
Wanton Sex Goddess
First of all I love the name of this polish, I love the Bridge Jones films. This polish instantly stood out to me, such a rich purple colour with a pinky shimmer. It applied like a dream, two really easy coats. I stamped over it using Barry M gold foil and a plate from the Pueen love elements collection.
I do love a cocktail :) Raspberry daiquiri is absolutely stunning. It's a raspberry pink holographic polish and wow the holo really pops! Again I can't fault the formula of this polish at all, it took 2 thin coats. I even painted these sitting outside in a rare sunny day in England.
Blue Hawaii (stamped with Blue Lagoon)
Blue Hawaii is a delicate, pastel blue, holographic polish. The holographic effect isn't as powerful as raspberry daiquiri above but it's still a gorgeous polish. This was very easy to apply but I did need 3 thin coats to get full coverage. I also used Freckles polish Blue Lagoon to stamp with. I haven't yet got swatches for this on its own but it's a darker holographic blue and it goes perfectly with blue hawaii.
Which one is your favourite? I think mine has to be raspberry daiquiri! I'm going to wait for another sunny day to wear that again and it looked amazing in the sunshine. I am really impressed with the formula of these polishes. The only slight criticism I have is that I found the brush a bit short, I tend to prefer longer brushes but I still managed to apply all 3 with no or very little clean-up.
You can purchase these from the Freckles Polish Etsy Store at £6.50 for a full size or £3.50 for a mini. She has many other finishes so go check them out :)
