So not sure if you’ve all noticed but there has been a wave of new UK indie makers recently. This is good news, but I admit I have been waiting for a longer term reaction to see where to part with my cash but when I saw swatches of Glitter Babies i have to say I was impressed.
In the flesh they did not disappoint. First up, the packaging was very cute. Polka dotted tissue paper and the polishes came in a little bag – so this had to be mentioned.
The 2 I purchased were Summertime a green themed glitter and Sunshine a red/orange themed glitter. The glitter is of different sizes and is matt – so it is a bit different. All the below show Glitter Babies over a base coat and with 1 coat of SV.
First up we have Sunshine – I layered this over Kiko 362 which is a stunning poppy red creme (although the picture picks up a slight shimmer, no idea why) 2 coats, no top coat here.
I’m not sure the red was a good choice, the glitter applies well – no fishing and glitter pay off on the coat is good. I also think the glitter is quite pretty but maybe the red over powers it…Or maybe I put to much glitter on, less is more and all that… I will revisit Sunshine with different undies and let you know when have found one I’m happy with 🙂
Next up is Summertime – I layered this over Kiko 391 a vibrant grass green creme, which I really liked. Surprisingly so!
Again the glitter went on well, I actually got a heart every time I pulled my brush out – but I think big glitters are a waste on my little nail. And I love the combination of colours in the glitter, and the squares and hexes.
I also decided to try Summertime over a lighter green, so here it is over Models Own Apple Pie
Amazing how much softer the glitter comes off on a pastel. I like both glitters but Summertime is just fab!
You can order these from here – you order via an online form, and the girls will send you a pay pal invoice. I ordered on a Thursday night and they were delivered on Saturday – really impressive. And I will be keeping an eye out on future collections 🙂
