Hello lovely readers!
Where have I been!? I know, I'm terrible at blogging regularly but this pregnancy just takes all my energy from me; I'm mostly sleeping these days. I do have lots of swatches to show you in the coming weeks as I'm slowly getting around to reviewing them all. Today I have a new UK indie brand to show you called Freckles Polish.
Freckles Polish is handmade by Julieann and she was kind enough to let me review two polishes. It's so exciting to have another UK indie maker on the scene!
First up is 'Take me for Ice Cream'.
Take me for Ice Cream is from the Sprung Collection and is described as a glitter crelly. I think this description is spot on. It really reminds me of Essie Marshmallow with its shade of white and application. I applied 4 thin coats to get an almost opaque finish. I had to place a few of the glitter hexes where I wanted them but they mostly built up nicely after each layer. I love the glitter sandwich effect you get with this polish. You could of course apply this over white if you prefer a more opaque finish. I applied a coat of Seche Vite top coat here to even it out.
Next up is Blue Soup.
Blue Soup is from the Bridget Jones Collection (oh yes!). I love that scene in the film...cracks me up so it does.
I would describe this shade of blue as the kind of blue you get in a crayon...does that make sense?! I love it, it's really unique to my collection and there's a gorgeous shimmer in there too which I only noticed once I'd applied it, but it is noticeable in the natural daylight. It took 2 coats to get it opaque but I applied 3 just for a more macro-friendly look. I also applied top coat to this one. The formula on this was great and I hardly needed any clean-up...top marks from me.
Freckles Polish is now available for pre-order from the Freckles Etsy store and bottles are priced at £6.50 for 10ml. You can follow Freckles Polish on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram too for all the important updates.
