Bellaluna Cosmetics Peppermint Stick + Holiday Glimmer Swatches + Review

Press Sample buttonHi everyone and happy afternoon to you! I have two wonderful polishes to show you today from Bellaluna Cosmetics, so let’s get right to it!

Bellaluna Cosmetics is a new indie polish maker (I believe she opened in November), and she has a strong showing of polishes for the holidays. Each bottle of polish comes with a tag (like you’d see on presents!) with the polish name on it.

Peppermint Stick is a beautiful white crelly polish with red micro hexes and green micro micro glitters (I dunno what they’re called, but they are teeny!). When Samantha asked me to pick which polishes I wanted to swatch, this was number one. I love a good white crelly with glitters. This is 2 coats, with A Girl Obsessed Matte-Ict top coat:

This seriously has an amazing formula. If every crelly I picked up was exactly like this, I would be in polish heaven (and broke). Not too thick, not too thin, just perfect! Here it is with Mentality Fast Dry top coat:

Holiday Glimmer is a sheer pink with scattered holographic glitters. This is really sheer, so let’s show it by itself first, this is 3 coats with Mentality Fast Dry top coat:

I did find it to be a bit thick, but nothing unworkable at all! I do prefer my polishes not to be too thin, so this was perfect for me. (Just a note for those of you who prefer a thinner polish.)

Holiday Glimmer really is perfect for layering though! Here it is layered 1 coat over OPI Sparrow Me the Drama (2 coats), with Mentality Fast Dry top coat:

By layering it over another polish, you really get a chance to see how beautiful this polish is. Of course, I had to show the sparkle in the sunshine!

You can catch Bellaluna Cosmetics at her etsy store, on Facebook and on instagram. You’ll definitely want to check out the rest of her holiday collection!

I’m also participating in the annual holiday nails blog hop hosted by The Sparkle Queen:

I’d love to know what your thoughts are about either of these polishes. Are you a crelly fan like me?
