Hi 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!
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?
