Long time no speak my lovely little fairies; I am so sorry for my extremely long absence lately. Life has been slightly chaotic there are lots of changes going on in the FairyTale household, all for the better thankfully. I am in the middle of moving home at the moment so unfortunately there will probably be another little blog break coming up shortly. However today I have some gorgeous polishes to show you from the lovely Alex at Nail Artisan. Read on to find out more...
For a while now Alex has been talking about launching her own line of polishes, for those of you who don't know Alex is the brains and brawn behind Nail Artisan a fabulous UK supplier for all things nail art and nails. She is now branching out and creating her own line of nail polishes, and let me tell you these do not disappoint. For the initial launch she will be releasing a set of 20 core cremes and the 'Dusk til Dawn' collection which consists of 6 multi-chrome polishes. These were kindly sent to me from Alex for review but all opinions are my own.
So let's take a closer look at these beautiful polishes:
First up we have 'Claire' this is a stunning hot rose toned pink creme, my swatch pic is 2 coats plus the Nail Artisan quick dry top coat. The formula for this is so lovely to work with it went on like butter and levelled out beautifully, this does dry to a glossy finish so if you don't want to top coat you wouldn't have to.
Next we have the gorgeous 'Celine' this is a dusty pink creme with another really nice to apply formula. My swatch pic is 2 coats plus the glossy top coat. Another fabulous polish to work with and a great colour to suit lots of different skin tones.
A fabulous polish for the upcoming summer is 'AnnZoe' this is a beautiful bright verging on neon orange creme. Swatch pic is 2 coats plus the glossy top coat. Formula again was really nice to work with and had no issues application.
Another great for all those skin tones shade is 'Pippa' a stunning dusty purple creme. My swatch pic is 3 coats plus glossy top coat, this one was on the sheerer side but not difficult to apply. I really liked this colour with my skin tone and this one was a huge crowd pleaser at my Nan's house on Sunday.
The final polish from the creme collection I have to show you is 'Erin' this is a bright apple green creme, the formula did feel slightly more jelly like with this one but that gave it a lovely squishy look. My swatch pic is 3 coats plus glossy top coat.
The last two polishes I have to show you are from the Dusk til Dawn collection, the first one is 'Sun Salutation'. This is a really pretty bright yellow that has a gold to pink/purple shift. The formula for these multi-chromes was really nice to work with and the shift is apparent on your nails as well as in the bottle. Shown is 2 coats plus glossy top coat.
The final polish I have to show you today is 'Vesper' this is a really pretty purple to green to gold multi-chrome. Again formula was really nice to apply and it was quite an opaque polish. Shown is 2 coats plus glossy top coat.
Along with the two debut collection Alex will be launching her own base coat and Matte top coat. I used the base coat for all of my swatches and I had no issues with staining it was a nice nourishing base coat to wear and didn't feel thick. The matte top coat was really nice to work with it dried fast and gave a really lovely matte effect to the polish. Below is 'Vesper' with the Nail Artisan matte top coat.
Another polish that will be available to purchase is 'Northern Lights' this is a beautiful flakie topper with scattered holo. This will give your base coat a beautiful flakie finish, it is a clear base and can be slightly base heavy but if you just have a small amount on your brush you will get a good glitter pay off. I have swatched this over 'AnnZoe' and it gave me those awesome summer vibes. This will be available to buy for £7.99.
All of these polishes are launching today 31st May 2019, the cremes will be available to purchase individually for £5.99. You can get the full Dusk til Dawn collection for £42.50 or individually for £7.50.
If you are looking for some good quality cremes and some nice multi-chrome polishes then definitely go check out these beautiful polishes. The formula's across the board were all lovely to work with and I had no issues with staining or the polish being too thick or too thin.
I will leave links below to the Nail Artisan cosmetics website and their social media. Make sure to check out their Instagram to see all the other swatches of the other polishes, some fabulous ladies swatching these polishes for you.
I would love to know your thoughts on this new brand launch?? Let me know which of these you would pick up. My favourites are probably Claire and Vesper, I'm a sucker for a hot pink and I really loved the shift in Vesper.
Big thank you once again to Alex for sending me these polishes, can't wait to see what else you come up with in the future.
Hope you all enjoyed this post my little fairies, I am hoping I won't be gone too much longer as I have so much awesome nail mail to share with you all. Have a fabulous day my lovelies and chat again soon.
