Hello lovely readers! I’ve been a bit quiet lately, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been working on blogging! I recently upgraded my blogging area to include studio lights that I think has made such a drastic difference! I think you’ll see the biggest change on my channel, where you can finally see so much more detail! I broke in the new setup with this new collection, and damn are they are amazing! Let’s get to the swatches!
Concentric Circles- Silver holographic micro glitters in a magenta red base with a subtle pink / gold shifting aurora shimmer. $11 USD / $13 AUD
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. This is one of my favorites in the new shades. Formula is ultra smooth and buttery on the nail and applies very opaque. The base color is leaning just at touch bright but in person it’s a magenta with a red undertone that leans almost pink-like. There’s a lot on sparkle and the aurora shimmer is subtle, but you’ll see a lovely soft glow in the background. No texture after topcoat.
Edge Of Your Seat- A dark blurple base with copper to green shifting shimmer and silver holographic flakes. $12 USD / $14 AUD
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is jelly like, but applies opaque on the nail and very smooth. The shimmer appears in a copper-red with an obvious green shift at extreme angles. This one reminds me of a night sky, and no texture after topcoat.
Elevate You- A dark purple base filled with metallic turquoise micro flakes. $10 USD / $12 AUD LIMITED TO ONE LARGE BATCH
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is rich and dense on the nail and applies very smooth. You can see the base as a deep purple, however after building it up the microflakes take over. This is so rich and lush, and no texture after topcoat.
Romancer- A pale grey base with a fine particle pink / orange / gold shifting aurora shimmer and silver holographic flakes. $12 USD / $14 AUD
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is crelly like and applies very smooth. You’ll see the grey base on the edges of your nail with the shimmer appearing dusky pink in bright lights. On angles, you’ll see the lovely orange shift. No texture after topcoat.
Silver And Cold- A light grey base filled with green to pink shifting foil type shimmer. $10 USD / $12 AUD
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. This one is crazy shifty. I was experimenting with my setup, hence the wannabe artsy-fartsy haha. In bright lights you’ll see a lovely strong green glow with an easy pink shift with movement. This dries down matte, so I’d recommend a glossy topcoat, though I think it looks cool matted too.
Start Things Over – A mint green ( warm ) to dusty blue ( cold ) with pink to gold shifting shimmer. $10 USD / $12 AUD
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula applies crelly like and dries down matte. The thermal properties are very sensitive and the shimmer flatters both states very well.
Terrible Wonders A dark brown base with silver metallic flakes and silver holographic flakes. $10 USD / $12 AUD
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula feels very jelly like, but applies rich and smooth on the nail. You’ll get a lovely pond effect from the flakes, and a strong reflective sparkle (my favorite type of flake). No texture after topcoat.
The Devils Side A dark red base filled with red and blue iridescent flakes. $10 USD / $12 AUD
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula is dense and jelly like and is very smooth with a touch of squish factor. If you loved Half Orange, you need this. The base color is definitely red, but I feel like there’s a magenta lean from the flakies. No texture after topcoat.
The new releases launch January 29th at 10am AEDT, and January 28th at 6pm EST. Be sure to check out my swatch video to see these beauties in action!
