Esmaltes Da Kelly: Lucy

Are you ready for some major sparkle-ness? Take a look at Lucy by Esmaltes Da Kelly:esmaltes da kelly - sally1So much sparkle, my camera had troubles capturing it. Such an awesome polish! I used two coats here plus two coats of top coat (these glitter bombs are glitter thirsty).esmaltes da kelly - sally
Esmaltes Da Kelly polishes are (among others) available at Llarowe and Color4Nails.

Esmaltes Da Kelly: Sally

Hi lovelies,

I’m back with another polish from Esmaltes Da Kelly 🙂 This is Sally:esmaltes da kelly - sally1This one has a jelly base and is jam packed with glitter. The formula is on the thicker side but nothing problematic. I used two coats here. Due to the high amount of glitter this one is starving for top coat and almost completely ate up the first coat. For that reason I applied two coats of top coat. esmaltes da kelly - sallyI’ve searched for other swatches before purchasing a few Esmaltes Da Kelly’s and as with Phoenix, shown here, this looks different on me than shown in other swatches. On me it’s more purple and less magenta. I don’t know if that’s my pale skin tone or a slight color variation in batches. Or it could be because I take my photo’s outdoors and I’ve seen photo’s made in light boxes. I dunno. I don’t mind this but I think it’s good to know.

Have a great day! :*

Esmaltes Da Kelly: Phoenix

Hands in the air for a new to me indie brand: Esmaltes Da Kelly. The mastermind behind this indie brand is Kelly Cristina from Brazil. This brand got my attention the minute I saw Ladybug at Llarowe. That one is on my wishlist ever since. I hope it will be restocked anytime soon. I went ahead and ordered some other ones that looked o so gorgeous.
This is Phoenix:esmaltes da kelly - phoenix 1I can’t even begin to describe this polish. It’s described as a magenta base but I really can’t see that, at least not in my bottle. If I search for swatches I definitely see magenta. Of course that was the reason why I went for this one. Gotta love my pink/purple hue’s. Nevertheless this is a super pretty polish! I used three thin coats plus to coat here.
Another thing that I noticed… these polishes don’t contain stainless steel mixing balls. This one was settled when it arrived. I’ve let it sit upside down for a while and that ‘problem’ was solved. The other two polishes that I bought are more loaded with glitter which makes mixing harder without mixing balls. I just added two of my own so for me it isn’t a big issue but I can imagine that it’s a bit difficult to mix them without the mixing balls. esmaltes da kelly - phoenixAll Esmaltes Da Kelly polishes have a black fabric ribbon on the cap. So cute!

Ps. If you spot Ladybug anywhere, please let me know! :*
