Freckles Polish Christmas Collection (Winter Wonderland and You Better Not Shout)

Now I will start off this post by saying I am not a chrismassy person, I never really got the whole festive season jazz, but that doesn't mean I can't appreciate a pretty little Christmas polish :)

Now I showed you my first Freckles Polishes yesterday and this is 2 more from another collection, the Christmas Collection which is also launching on the 28th of this month.

Firstly I will show you Winter Wonderland which is a irridescent/flaky/glittery top coat.

Now this polish has a clear base, so can pretty much be layered over any colour but I choose to keep it simple and layer it over black and white.

First I will show you it over black which really brings out the blues in the base.  This is 1 coat of the Knight, 1 of a-england Camelot, 1 of WW and one of the Shield.

Now here it is over white, which makes the blue shimmer a lot less in your face, but does look a little ethereal, like fresh snow or something.  This is 1 coat of the Knight, 2 of Nails Inc Floral Street, 1 coat of WW and one of the Shield.

Then I have the second polish from the Christmas Collection to show you, this is You Better Not Shout which is a purple jelly polish with various sized holo glitters throughout.  This is 1 coat of the Knight, 3 of the polish and 1 of the Shield.

I was really impressed with both of these polishes as well, they are both different kinds of polish from the ones I showed you yesterday but application was still good so no complaints here.

Again, these will be available from the Freckles Polish Etsy site (UK only) from 28 November.

Freckles Polish - Prank Call Collection (Ben Dover and Chris P Bacon)

Apologies for the little gap in posting, been super busy and finally finding a little time tonight to share these polishes with you.

I have tonight 2 polishes from a brand I have seen around but have not had the chance to try, until now obviously.  I am showing you 2 polishes from the Freckles Polish Prank Call collection, which is a tongue in cheek little collection where the polishes are names after classic cheesy prank call names.

The first one I will show you is Ben Dover which is a navy polish with a great shimmer.

Application was great and even with the mini bottles, I had no problem with the brush,

This is 1 coat of the Knight, 2 of the polish and 1 of the Shield.

The second polish I have to show you from this collection is Chris P Bacon which is a pink polish that also has a great shimmer to it.

This is 1 coat of the Knight, 2 of the polish and 1 of the Shield.

I am really impressed with these two polishes and wold happy try more from this brand, I do have a couple of the Xmas polishes to show you too, so will do this in the next couple of days.  This collection will be released on 28 November, so keep an eye out on the official store to see these, and some other newbies too :D  Oh I should say as well, Freckles Polish is a UK based brand, so at this point can only ship within the UK..

Thanks for looking <3

Cadillacquer The Dark Defender

Sorry for the lack of posts this week, had a busy week and been too tired to prepare,,

But anyway, since I am having a lazy Saturday, figured I could fit a quick post in.

I wanted to show you one of the newly discontinued Cadillacquer polishes from the Dexter Collection  The Dark Defender has a dark teal jelly base with light green and purple micro flakies.  Now you can use a few coats and build this one up but I decided to layer it.

This is 1 coat of The Dark Defender over 2 coats of a-england Crown of Thistles and 1 coat of the Shield on top of it all.  I love how this looks even with just one layer, I have included a little close up to try and show the flakies off.  The purple base makes it look much more blue, but you can see the real teal colour in the bottle.

This polish is still available on the official site, but as I said, its now discontinued and in the sale (with some other great polishes) so don't miss our if you want it....You can also check out the other stockist such as Llarowe, Harlow & Co or Rainbow Connection.

Thanks for looking <3

Candeo Zef (with a-england Princess Tears and Colors by Llarowe Coconut)

Only the one post tonight, as I am tired and ready for the weekend already... But this post does have a couple different polishes in it, so that should make up for it :)

I wanted to show you Candeo Zef which I got off Llarowe probably at least a year ago, possibly closer to two... and I know they are no longer sold on the Llarowe site but you can still buy them on the official site as far as I am aware.

Zef is a great little clear based glitter, and the glitters in it are black, pink and blue in various sizes...and I just love the squares.

Firstly I will show you a really old swatch of this one, that I found in my newly rescued hard drive, my nails were much shorter here but this is 1 coat of the Knight, 2 of a-england Princess Tears, 1 of Zef and 1 Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food as a top coat - which has a matte kind of finish.

I now have for you a new swatch using Candeo Zef, in a jelly sandwich with Colors by Llarowe Coconut, which is a pure white jelly polish.  I will show you Coconut first, this is 1 coat of the Knight and 3 coats of the polish.

I then put one coat of Zef on top and another coat of Coconut and 1 coat of the Shield to finish it all off.

As I said, Candeos can be purchased from the official site, and this one is still there, along with some other great looking polishes that I would like to get but I am a little perplexed by the way international orders are handled, probably just as I have not seen it done this way before.

a-englands can be bought on the official a-england site, if you are in the UK, and if not, a-englands can be purchased from Llarowe or visit here for a full list of international stockists

Colors by Llarowe polishes can be purchased from the official site, Harlow and Co and Rainbow Connection.
