Here are my swatches and review of three creations that are handmade by Barbra, the founder of I Love Nail Polish.
First I like to point out that I adore the packaging of the polishes. All polishes have lovely boxes which have their names on the bottom. The names of the polishes are also labeled on the bottom of the bottle. The bottles have a rubbery grip which makes opening them super easy and gives you better grip. All in all these polishes feel like real luxury to me 😀
Strawberry Creme, a milky cream base packed with different size pink, fuchsia and red glitter. Since it is sheer I used two coats to get full opacity. The formula is a dream and application went easy. I used top coat to get a smooth finish. I can’t help thinking of milkshake when looking at this. It’s so milky and creamy 😀 Bet this would look great over a pastel base.
Her Highness, a mix of different size fuchia, brown and gold glitter swimming in a clear base. For this mani I used OPI’s Berlin There Done That as the base color. Then I gently dabbed Her Highness on my nails near my cuticles to create sort of a glitter gradient. The formula is a bit thicker than Strawberry Creme so you might need to do some replacing of the glitter when layered over the entire nails. This doesn’t gave me any problems with the application. This feels kind off luxe!
Little Mermaid, a clear base packed with lots of different hues (mostly silver and teal) (bar)glitter. As you can see my camera freaked out by the incredible shiny-ness of this polish! Because of the name of this polish and the teal glitter I chose ANNY’s Pool girl as my base color. The formula is, as with Her Highness, because of the gllitter a bit thick. This, again, doesn’t gave me any problems with application though.
Overall, I really like these three polishes. I can’t really pick a favorite. What do you think girls?
