Stellar Polish Swatches

Press Sample

Hello everyone! You may remember a little while ago I showed you swatches of Stellar Polish Come Away With Me (Norah Jones), which I adored! UK indie brand Stellar is the brainchild of my lovely friend Ruth, who has such a wonderful eye for colour! She’s sent me three minis to try, which are all super pretty! All the polishes are named after the song that inspired each individual colour, which I think is lovely. I’ll let the piccies do the talking!

WingDust The Deep End

Hi there πŸ™‚ Today I have a really interesting polish to show you from the indie brand WingDust. I have to confess that I’ve owned this since last November… and only just properly tried it today. I got it at the same time as I got WingDust Perfect Day. I’ve swatched it on one nail before to get an idea of what it should look like, when I’ve been deciding what to wear, but this morning it caught my eye for some reason and made me want to wear it! This tends to happen with a lot of my indie collection

Anyway, the reason I bought this in the first place is because it’s such a quirky mixture of colours and it’s really unique. Hope you enjoy!

Yellow, Is It Me You’re Looking For? – Rainbow Series

Hey there everyone πŸ™‚ today is week four of mine and Charlie‘s Rainbow Series! In this collaboration we show a different colour each week, and this week is yellow. I have to admit, yellow is a colour seriously lacking in my collection, mostly because it looks pretty terrible against my skin! The reason why the majority of my favourites that I’ve picked out are Barry M polishes, is because I have collected pretty much the entire line of Barry Ms and more, so naturally I have a few of their yellows!

I feel like I’m cheating a bit with these favourites, because in all honesty I only have seven yellows in total, and I’ve picked out 5 faves! Oh well. I do really quite like these ones, mostly on other people though πŸ˜‰

Emily De Molly Super Vixen

Hey all! Sorry I had a quiet day yesterday, I wasn’t quite feeling myself… got some much-needed relaxation and sleep instead! I decided to use a polish that I’ve always loved but never used (shock… horror, you say) today. I actually bought Super Vixen (coolest name… EVER!) last June, but it was still untried until now, I sadly confess. I think part of the problem is that when I bought it I wasn’t much into layering glitter over a coloured base, and couldn’t face removing 4 coats of glitter… and partly because I just couldn’t decide what colour to use as ‘underwear’.

Sorry! Please forgive me my sins. It’s here now. I won’t confess how many other untrieds I still have… Ahem. Anyway, this is one coat of Super Vixen over two coats of CiatΓ© Pillow Fight. On a sidenote, I am seriously going to have to buy a big backup bottle of Pillow Fight, and Pepperminty, from my MMM CiatΓ© Calendar!

Picture Polish Altered State

Hello! So you may have noticed… I’m on a bit of a Picture Polish kick!! It started with Aurora, and yesterday Illusionist, and now this one! πŸ˜› These are all from the Limited Edition collection which is very, very limited!! I only bought three of the five, which I’m now regretting!

Of the three I bought, this one has the most subtle duochrome effect. But it’s still super pretty! I struggled a little to get the shift in the photos because it was pretty miserable today, grey and horrible! I did manage to get a few shots of it though :).
