Hello! Recently I was emailed by a lovely lady named Sarah, who has created a new UK Indie nail polish line called Sarah Jae Polish. She kindly offered to send me a few nail polishes from her line to try out and review here – so I’ve got some to show you today 🙂
There are currently 10 nail polishes in the Sarah Jae line-up, and I have four: Cupid Shot Me, I Want Blue, Dazzling Blue, and Elizabeth.
Cupid Shot Me
This is a clear-based glitter filled with red and magenta metallic glitter in two sizes, and matte red hearts. It’s perfect for layering (I think it’s unlikely to get to full opacity) and is super reflective. The photos show the polish at 1 coat and 2 coats respectively, over Barry M Eat My Dust.
Application: The glitter applies evenly and the polish flows well. I had to fish a little for the heart glitter but it wasn’t a big problem. It dries fairly quickly to a semi-matte finish, so definitely use topcoat! 🙂
This is another clear-based glitter, filled with tiny gold metallic glitter, and larger matte blue hexagonal glitter. The photo shows it at 1 coat over Essence ‘Latex Matt’ The Black Cat. This is a firm favourite for me – I love the blue/gold combination and it really stands out! Again I think you might struggle to reach full opacity with this one.
Application: This polish flows well, and the glitter applies evenly. I had to place a few of the blue glitters but nothing too fiddly! It dries fairly quickly and to a semi-matte finish – again, I would recommend using topcoat 🙂
This is another clear-based glitter, filled with small cyan blue metallic hexagonal glitter. While the first two have been layering-only type glitters, this one does get quite opaque. The above photos are 1 coat and 2 coats respectively over Barry M Pit Stop – I love it both ways! It’s super reflective too.
Application: Again this one flows easily and the glitter applies evenly. It dries fairly quickly and to a semi-matte finish – topcoat recommended for full shine.
This is also a clear-based glitter – filled with gold microglitter, salmon pink metallic squares, matte white squares, hexagonal glitters and bar glitter, matte black squares and metallic silver bar glitter. This is hands-down my favourite – I LOVE this combination of glitters and colours. This is one coat over Barry M Road Rage. I don’t think this one would easily get to full opacity.
Application: Again this one has great application – the glitter is dense and applies evenly. It dries fairly quickly to a semi-matte finish – again topcoat recommended!
I’m a big fan of all four of these nail polishes (I did get to choose them so perhaps I’m biased!) but the application was good for all of them and the glitter colour combinations are lovely. The brush in Sarah Jae polishes is a nice flat brush, which makes neat application easy.
If you want to read Sarah’s ‘About Me’ page, which explains a little more about Sarah and why she started a nail polish brand, you can find that here.
You can buy these lovely nail polishes from Sarah’s website here, for the very affordable sum of £5.50 each 🙂 Sarah is also offering free delivery in the UK for a limited time!
