Bettie Pain Polish Science Fiction Collection

November 29, 2015

Press Samples

Today I have a special post from an Australian brand you’ve never seen me review before. I have purchased this brand for myself before and been so impressed that I was excited to review their latest collection. Bettie Pain Polish is based out of Queensland, Australia, and I am so happy to share with you today their Science Fiction Collection.

Science fiction is a huge love for creator of Bettie Pain, Megan, and she put all her love into creating polishes for this collection based on some of her very favourite movies. I think she has nailed every single one, and I am smitten with all the polishes. Each polish arrived to me with a little tagline attached to it from the movie it was inspired by, so I’ll add that into my review below!

“You’ve been up here too long man. You’ve lost your marbles”.- Moon

Moon is an ash-toned nude with lovely green shimmer and gold flakes. To me, it feels like a creme-jelly, in that it is a creme but has a lovely squishiness to it also. It applies very smoothly and is nice and opaque. I used two coats for my swatches and one coat of topcoat. It does dry glossy however I did find that the topcoat helped to accentuate the shimmer a little more. I think this is a very delicate and beautiful polish I will get a lot of wear out of.

“Big things have small beginnings”.- Prometheus

Prometheus is a vibrant dark cerulean blue with opal flakes, tiny copper sparks and a small amount of scattered holo. Now, my pictures just don’t do this polish any justice. It’s perfectly squishy and deep and beautiful. It applied like a perfect jelly polish, two coats and one coat of topcoat.

“My name is Khan”.- Star Trek: Into Darkness

Into Darkness is a glorious holo polish. It has a blue-toned blackened base with blue sparks, linear holo and strong violet overlay. It looks so SO pretty on! It applied like a dream, only needed two coats and I did not apply topcoat for my swatches.

“Compliance!”.- Flight Of The Navigator

Flight Of The Navigator is the sparkle king in this collection! A clear based polish jam packed with holo glitters and shimmer, golden highlight glitters and a blue-violet iridescent shimmer. It is blinding in the light with it’s disco-ball bling! Again, this one applied very well, especially for the amount of glitter in it. I used two coats and one coat of topcoat for my swatches.

“If it’s just us…seems like an awful waste of space”.- Contact

Contact is just so beautiful! It has a dark red-berry coloured base with tiny gold flakes and beautiful scattered holo. It is so dark in the bottle it almost looks black, but pop it on your nails and get in some light and the colours simply dance! It was opaque at two coats, but I did three for my swatches here today because I just wanted more! I added one coat of topcoat.

“Mankind was born on Earth. It was never meant to die here”.- Interstellar

In tradition, I have saved my complete favourite for last! This movie has been one of my favourite movies I have seen this year, and watched repeatedly, which is huge for me because I don’t actually watch very many movies. The polish itself is stunning and I think that it smashed that inspiration out the park! Interstellar has a very pale grey creme-jelly base with lightly scattered holo, matte black speckles and delicate silver shimmer to give it some lift. It looks magnificent on, and just amazes me because it’s such a simple polish, but made so well that I adore it. My swatches are just two coats with topcoat.

The Science Fiction Collection will be available from Bettie Pain Polish on December 12th. Bettie Pain currently only ships from their store to addresses within Australia, however they are now stocked at US based, Shiro Cosmetics (YAY!), so if you’re overseas I recommend getting in contact with Shiro Cosmetics to express your interest in getting these to you.

Are you a fan of science fiction movies? What do you think about these polishes?
