I think it’s safe to say that I’ve become obsessed with holo and indie nail polish (preferably a combination of the two). Today I’m showing you my first polish from indie brand Painted Polish, called Haute Parisian Night.
Haute Parisian Nights is a hot pink ultra holographic polish that covers in two super easy coats. It is a linear holo with silver holographic glitter, and I guess that’s what makes it an ultra holo! Anyway I freaking love this polish! It is seriously stunning, I could not stop staring at my nails while wearing it. In the sun you can really see that it is a linear holo, and when the nails are not in direct sunlight you really see the holographic glitters in it.
I’ll just let the pictures speak for themselves.
I really, really didn’t want to remove it so I decided to use it as the base for nail art (not that it needs any nail art on top of it). To fit in with the month of February I chose to stamp a rose design using stamping plate BP-73 from Born Pretty Store and stamping polish White Knight from MoYou London.
I can’t wait to get my hands on some more ultra holos from Painted Polish!
While I wait for one of my nails to grow out (because I can’t file the other nails that short, and I want them all the same length) I’m showing some swatches that I have saved on my phone.
Today we’re taking a closer look at Madder from Cirque Colors. I used this polish not too long ago for one of my Christmas manis, which you can find here.
Cirque Colors – Madder
Madder is a red linear holo that covers in two coats and is easy to apply. It is stunning, as all the other polishes from Cirque that I’ve tried. I must say that I really, really like this brand.
After seeing Anne wear this polish the other day I felt like I hade to wear it too!
Cupcake Polish – Berry Good Looking
Berry good looking is a purple linear holographic polish that covers in two coats. It dries a bit dull so a glossy top coat is a must to show off the beautiful holo!
The first time I used it the formula was a bit thick and it dried quick, so I had to to work fast to get a smooth application. When I read about this polish on Annes blog she said that her polish was a bit runny, so I thought that maybe the formula of mu polish was wrong. So I used a few drops of thinner and the formula turned out so much better!
This is my first Cupcake Polish and it’s so pretty that I think it will be hard to beat!
I have recently gotten really into indie polishes. It all started with piCture pOlish this summer, and my latest discovery is Cirque Colors.
Cirque Colors is a New York-based indie brand specializing in hand-blended nail lacquers. Their nail polish is 3-free, which means it does not contain toluene, formaldehyde and dibutyl phthalate (DBP). And in true indie style all their products are hand-mixed in small batches and hand-poured individually.
Let’s take a look at my first three, but definitely not last, polishes from Cirque Colors.
Cirque – Xochitl
Xochitl is a beautiful purple linear holographic polish that covers in two coats. I don’t know why but I’m really drawn to purple holos and this one is no exception. I actually think this one could be my absolute favorite purple holo!
Cirque – Bejeweled
Bejeweled is a blue linear holographic polish that covers in two coats. OMG just look at this blue color, isn’t it the prettiest you’ve seen!?
Cirque – Framboise
Framboise is a raspberry pink linear holographic polish that covers in two coats. Wow, another stunning polish! This color is just so pretty and girly.
You guys I’m really impressed with these polishes, they are super easy to apply and have great formulas! I don’t think I can decide which shade I like the most, it depends on what mood I’m in for the moment.
Have you tried any polishes from Cirque Colors?
I just came home from a vacation in London and even though I did some (plenty) nail polish shopping there I got really excited to come home to these pretty polishes! I have been wanting get some polishes from piCture pOlish for a really really long time, but I obviously haven’t until now. Nail the mail is closing their shop and have 50% off everything, so I stayed up late the night before we were going on our vacation just so I could score some polishes cheaper. And I ended up buying seven polishes…. ooops!
electric dream – eerie – desire – moscow – fool’s gold – o’hara – cosmos
I’m really excited to try these polishes and I already want to buy more!
Have you tried any polishes from piCture pOlish, and do you have a favorite shade?
