I some more delicious Australian indie nail polishes to share with you tonight! Celestial Cosmetics is a 5-free nail polish brand out of southern Australia. They are currently not shipping internationally from their online store but you can snag some in the US from Color4Nails. As I have said before, Color4Nails is my go-to shop for international indie polish. You just can't go wrong with them. Today, I am sharing swatches of the It's All Happening collection which is inspired by the movie Almost Famous. It is a set of seven polishes with all different finishes and colors. The entire collection is available now from Color4Nails. Let's take a look!
"We are Band Aids" is a true purple linear holographic polish. The formula was lovely and smooth. I used two coats with a glossy top coat for this swatch. Celestial always does great holos.
"You Are Home" is a minty crelly with tons of microflakies. There are pale iridescent rainbow flakes and metallic silver flakes. You can really see them well in my macro. The formula was okay. It was a little bit thick and uneven but still leveled out in the end. I used three coats with a glossy top coat for this swatch.
"Swill Merchants" is a dusty grey blue crelly packed with iridescent glitter and aqua shimmer. I really love the color and shimmer of this polish but I didn't love the formula. It was a little thick and didn't level out easily. But I just love the color so much that I would work with it. I used three coats with a glossy top coat here.
"Set You Free" is a fiery red-orange jelly polish with lots of gold flakies and bright fuchsia to red shimmer. Of course, I loved this one. Jelly finish and orange...yes please. The formula was smooth and easy to apply. I used two coats with a glossy top coat here and you can just make out my visible nail line.
"Incendiary" is a silver linear holographic polish with a ton of silver metallic flakes. The rainbow is super strong on this one. In real life, you can really see all the silver flakes stand out against the rainbow backdrop but it doesn't really portrait that in my photos. Believe me...it's there! Formula was smooth and opaque in two coats. This one will distract you while driving!
"Lady" is a mauve crelly packed with a ton of rose gold shimmer and tiny blurple sheer microflakies. The shimmer was very prominent but didn't give it a frosty effect. I really like how the purple flakies pop against this base color. This was a little on the sheer side but applied nicely. I used two coats here with a glossy top coat. You can still make out my visible nail line if you hunt for it.
"Does Anyone Remember Laughter" is a bright cerulean blue with tons of pinky/purple pearl shimmer and bright blue microflakies. This is probably my least favorite of the bunch. The shimmer and flakies seemed to give it a visually rough look even though it was very smooth. The formula was a little sheer and uneven. I used two coats with a glossy top coat for this swatch.
Are you an Aussie indie fan? I am! I would say that "Set You Free" and "Swill Merchants" are my faves from this collection. Which ones are your faves and will you be getting any from this collection? As I said before, this entire collection is available now from Color4Nails for US buyers. There are many of this collection still available from the Celestial Cosmetics online store for Aussie buyers. Check them out :)
Thanks for stopping by!
