Freckles Polish Creme's Collection- Swatch & Review

Hello my lovely readers, I hope you are all having a great week so far and are enjoying all of this beautiful sunshine we have been having lately. I have been making sure Lexi and myself have plenty of sun screen on as we are both so pale, the joys of having Irish skin. For today's post I would like to show you the full 6 piece creme collection from Freckles polish.


This collection is all about creme's it was released a few months ago and has 6 gorgeous pastel shades with a creme finish; I believe this will be part of the Freckles Polish core collection and will be added to as the year goes on. Let's get into the swatches!


The first creme in the collection is called Banana Milkshake, this is a pastel yellow that takes 3 coats to be fully opaque. 


This polish was on the sheer side but built up really well, if manipulated too much this may get streaky so the three stroke method will probably be best for this one. 


This polish is perfect for Spring and Summer, or if your like me all year round. I can not resist a pretty pastel yellow on my fingers and toes. 


The second polish in the collection is by far my favourite, this is a bubble gum pink creme called Make The Boys Wink.


This reaches full opacity in 2 coats, the formula was easy to work with and built up really well.


I love this shade of pink; as you all know by now pink is one of my favourite colours so this was bound to be in my top 3 from this collection. This would look lovely with a floral pattern stamped over it. 


The third polish in the collection is called Fuzzy Peach, it is a peach shade with a few drops of pink. Because I am so pale this one made me feel like I had manikin hands, I would definitely say it looks more like a nude on me. 


Fuzzy Peach takes 2 coats to be fully opaque, this was another one that could get a little bit streaky if manipulated too much.


If you are a fan of nudes then you will love this polish, especially if you prefer them to be more pink toned. 


This beautiful violet creme is called Parma Violets, it is a gorgeous light pastel purple with a really easy to apply formula.


This took 2 coats to be fully opaque, you could even get away with just one thick coat but to make sure its not streaky I did add a second. 


This was one of the darker colours in the collection, I absolutely love it it is perfect for the Spring season and will work really well in a gradient. 


When you think of Spring and Summer what comes to mind? Gorgeous clear blue skies of course. Oh Boy is the perfect colour to bring that beautiful colour to your nails. 


Oh Boy is fully opaque in 2 coats and has an easy to apply formula. 


This is the perfect polish if you are wanting a gorgeous bright pastel blue on your nails, this would be the perfect base for a beach scene with a beautiful blue sky.


The last polish in the creme collection is called Minty Fresh, this is a beautiful mint colour that leans more green than blue.


Minty Fresh reaches full opacity in 2 easy to apply coats.


I love a good mint creme especially in the Spring, it goes so well with any design especially white daisies.

All of these creme polishes dry to a shiny finish, I did add top coat just so that the polish would last longer on the nail without chipping. None of these pastels left any staining around the cuticles or on the nail, the formula was really easy to work with and I would definitly recommend these if you are looking to add some pretty pastels to your collection. For the 5ml mini bottles it is £3.50 and for a full size 10ml bottle it costs £6.50, shipping charges start from £1.50 I have always received my parcels quickly and well bubble wrapped so very little chance of breakages.

Freckles Polish is a UK indie brand made by Julieann Byrne, she has loads of different polishes in different finishes. She has told me she will be releasing some new collections soon, I can not wait to see what she comes up with. I will leave the link to her Etsy shop below and all of Freckles Polish social media accounts below. 


I hope you have all liked my swatches for this creme collection and the new layout of my blog. I am always trying to improve my photo quality and blogging content. I would love to know what your favourite polish was from this collection, mine is definitly Make The Boys Wink. I am just a huge sucker for those beautiful pinks.

As always have a fabulous nail day and I will chat to all you wonderful people again soon.
