If you’re a Disney fan and you haven’t watched Moana yet… WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN? It’s probably one f my favourite (if not my favourite) out of the new animated ‘sing-song’ Disney films and I’ve definitely watched it too many times (is that a thing!?). Anyway, Lea from Sparklea Nail Polish released a Moana collection not too long ago and I recently purchased 3 out of the 5 polishes that were originally available. You can still get 3 of them (2 of the ones I’m sharing here plus another I didn’t get) on the website and they’re currently ON SALE! All polishes are handmade by Lea and are also are 5-free and cruelty-free. Most cost £6 for 10ml or £3.50 for 5ml at full price. I managed to pick up mine in the sale and I think I got them for £4 each.Read More »
I’m going to get straight into this because I bought these polishes about a year ago and I am only now getting round to swatching them! This is mainly because any nail polish lovers out there will know how much of a b***h it is to get glitter nail polish off so these swatches were aided by Charming Tale’s Practical Magic as a peel-off base! All swatches are 3 coats finished off with Seche Vite topcoat.
Snow White has a clear base and is filled with a variety of sizes of silver holographic hex glitters. I think if you used the sponge method of application you could get a fuller coverage but I quite like it as it is 🙂 Don’t you hate it when your macro shots show unwanted fluff on your nails??
Tinker Bell has a gorgeous green jelly base and has good coverage after 3 coats… I feel like this colour will be good for (dare I say it in August..) Christmas!
So there we have it… I enjoyed swatching these using liquid latex as a base.. it makes it so much more fun and stress-free and saves my nails from continuous exposure to nail polish remover during swatches. I think my favourite from this collection is Tinker Bell and Ariel. 🙂
You can purchase these online at Lucky Lacquers.
