Hello my lovely readers, today I have a very special post for you. I was recently contacted by a new indie polish company called Winkel Nails they kindly sent me four of their creme polishes to swatch and review for you. They are a brand new up and coming UK indie brand, all of their polishes are 5 free. This means that they do not contain any toluene, dibutyl phthalate, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin and camphor. All of them are also cruelty free which mean that no animal testing was done to create these lovely polishes. At the moment their collection mainly consists of creme polishes and a few glitters. Their are new colours being added every week, so keep your eyes peeled for those, so now that the introduction is out of the way lets get into these fabulous swatches.
The four polishes that I was sent for review all have a creme finish, I was really happy to see the variety in colour they had sent me. All of the polishes packaged really well, each bottle was wrapped in bubble wrap and they came in a red and white striped baggy. They arrived at my door two days after they had been posted to me so very quick shipping.
The first polish that caught my eye was this beautiful bright blue creme called Truly Fresh, this beautiful polish is opaque in just 1 coat. The formula was really easy to work with and it glided onto the nail nicely. The only thing I will mention is that if this polish gets onto your cuticles it will stain, so just be really careful to not flood your cuticles when applying this one.
The next polish I tried was Nude Neil this is a light caramel creme which is opaque in 2 coats. As you probably all know I am not a huge fan of nude colours, but this one did start to grow on me the longer it was on my nails. Again the formula was fantastic to work with and went on really smoothly leaving behind no brush strokes. If you love your nude polishes and the mannequin hand look this will definitly be a good polish for you.
This next polish is called Very Berry, it is a deep raspberry creme opaque in 2 coats. Again formula was fantastic and really easy to work with. This is one of my Mum's favorite colours to wear on her nails so I will definitly be recommending it to her. This colour will be great to wear in the winter months when we are all rocking those darker sultry shades.
The last polish that was sent to me is this lovely orange creme with a subtle pink shimmer, this one is called Sparkly Orange. This was also opaque in 2 coats, the shimmer does show up on the nail but it is very subtle. I think it will definitly be more prominent in the sun light than in artificial lighting, it is a great colour for this coming summer and would look fantastic on your toe nails too. Definitely a beach worthy polish!
Over all I am really impressed with these four polishes, I do wish the blue hadn't stained my cuticles but as long as you are really careful when applying it shouldn't be a problem. All of them have great formulas and no really big consistency issues. At the moment they are only shipping to the UK and it is free delivery when buying 2 or more bottles. Each polish comes in a 5ml bottle and costs £5.99 per bottle. For a 5 free indie polish this is quite a reasonable price, I will definitly be keeping an eye out to see what other polishes they release in the next few months.
I will leave all of Winkle Nails social media links below and I will have another post coming soon featuring some nail art using their polishes. Thank you again to Winkel Nails for sending me these polishes, I can't wait to see what the future brings for you.
As always I hope you are all having a fantastic nail day and a great Easter weekend. Chat to all you lovely people again soon.
