This HUGE week of Australian indie releases is slowly coming to an end, but before it’s over I still have lots of goodies in store for you! Today’s posts features eight new polishes from Celestial Cosmetics. We have a mix of finishes and uses for these polishes. Let’s hook in… But first!
Celestial Cosmetics have this week unveiled their new logo featuring the Celestial Fairy, Nyx. A gorgeous logo, and one you will see often around these parts. Now for the polishes..
HEART OF ASTA
Heart of Asta is a bright pastel pink crème polish. It is a fair bit bright than my camera captured. If you’re a pink lover, this one will be for you. It reminded me of musk sticks (lollies) so much I had to go and buy some when I did my groceries last week.
Heart of Asta applied a little streaky, but after that it levelled really nicely. Nicki (the owner of Celestial) informed me that she will be adding to the polish a bit more pigment to combat this streaking issue. Three thin coats for my swatches here today and one coat of topcoat.
Another crème polish for this release is Chandra. An aqua/turquoise coloured blue. I love the colour of this one and can see myself getting a lot of use out of it.
This crème was a dream to apply. The consistency was spot on. I used two thin coat and one coat of topcoat for my swatches.
Argent is a pure silver stamping polish. I was curious at first as to how this would go, as it is made up of so very much tiny silver pigment particles. After using it I’ve fallen in love with it. You can probably expect to see me using it as much as I’ve used Midas (the gold stamping polish) lately.
I stamped over the top of Chandra using plate Lily Anna 06. The lines were perfect and crisp. Very impressive. I also did a single finger using Argent itself. It is a stunning, sparkly silver on it’s own. I do not recommend, however, using stamping polish directly on the nail, as with some shades this could lead to staining.
Red Dwarf is a red toned purple linear holographic polish with stunning blue sparks. It reminds me of Callisto’s little sister. If you loved Callisto, you’ll adore this one.
Really simple to use, my swatches show two coats and no topcoat. I’ve included an image of the polish under filtered sunlight too, to help you see the base colour a little better.
SEA OF TRANQUILITY
Sea of Tranquility is a dusky, baby blue linear holographic polish. The holo in this one is very strong and beautiful. The rainbow really affect the colour accurateness in different positions outdoors, as you can see below.
I found it to be a little sheer at first, if it wasn’t however, we wouldn’t be able to gaze upon such a stunning rainbow, that’s for sure. The sheerness did not affect the overall application process. My swatches being three thin coats and no topcoat.
Serpent Sea is another pale toned holographic polish. A simple pastel green, with golden tones and strong linear holo. I adore the shade of this polish.
Surprisingly opaque, my swatches show two coats and one coat of topcoat.
Telesto is a stunning silver polish with gentle linear holo and purple fleck throughout. I love these shades Nicki has created, this one a sister to Galactic Aura (blue flecks) and Seven Sisters (pink flecks) from January’s releases.
I applied two coats and one of topcoat for my swatches, applying the polish with ease as it’s so simple to use.
The last polish in this February release, and my favourite of them all is Zodiac Light. A stunning polish in all lightings, Zodiac Light is a duochrome linear holo. The shift moves from warm pink-purple-blue-grey and contains a beautiful holographic effect for bling in full sunlight.
I applied only two easy coats and one of topcoat for my images here.
These February releases will be available from Celestial Cosmetics (they ship worldwide too) from the 1st February 2015.
