Well Hi there! Remember me? I used to write blogs here- then I came down with a hideous disease! Okay- it’s just Walking Pneumonia.I just like to act dramatic here because I’m a Mum and I can’t act like that at home. Pretty sure no one would care any how! HAHA!
So Tanaya from Sweet Therapy sent me some polishes to swatch from her new holographic line! I really can’t tell you how lovely these are. The formulas are just wonderful- a few only took 1 coat! Which is nearly unheard of in the handmade polish realm. *Notice I said “nearly unheard of” meaning, I haven’t heard of any- but if you have- don’t take it personally !! * 😀 Tanaya is so sweet and she also makes lovely bath and beauty products! You can visit her shop at http://www.sweettherapy.etsy.com – So let’s dig in!
So these are the lovelies she sent me, along with a sweet Thank You card! (I blurred the photo because at the time I was concerned about privacy.)
First up is “Hollow Queen” :
This was difficult to photograph! It has a lovely lavender and pink holographic hue. It reads as grey from some angles. In lower light- as in moonlight the holo really shimmers! Perfect polish for a night out!
Next up is “Plumb Berry” I took a low light shot and a day shot to give the sparkles their “due” :
This is low light- The glitters are really standing out. And this is just 1 generous coat! The formula is so smooth and cleans up nicely! I’m kind of obsessed with 1 coat polishes that just glide onto my digits! Here’ comes the daylight shot:
In the daylight it seems more holographic “bits and fleks” then shimmery. I just love that plum color- which is completely on trend for the new Fall season!
Next we have “Strawberry Kiss”:
This is so sweet and girly! It’s such a lovely take on a standard Fall wine color. It almost insinuates pink- but with sophistication! This was also just 1 easy coat! I could definitely see this shade making it through the Winter and early Spring seasons as well!
Last but not least we have “Honey B” :
This lime green/yellow shimmer-baby is GORGE! I don’t usually like a yellow on my skin tone..but this is definitely not the case with this pretty! The tiny holo glitters just make you want to stare at your fingers! You know when you get that polish you could just stare at it in EVERY different lighting possible? Like you’re afraid to look at your hands when you’re driving because you might just stare too long?- Yup! That’s this polish! And these are available for $7.50 for a full size!!
Now you’ll note from the first picture that Tanaya sent me 5 polishes.. It seems Miss Zoë Jane decided to grab the remaining bottle in it’s cute little bag, and make off with it. As some of you know, my house is under renovation. We have boxes and building supplies all over this joint! So I’ll have to edit this post with a swatch, once I locate it. I’ll also make sure to put it up on IG. (Sorry Tanaya!! ❤ You know babies though- they’re fast like lightning and sneaky too!)
