Kunimitsu Nail Potions is a new-to-me indie brand sold on Etsy, that I just recently learned makes vegan-only polishes (and lip glosses too!). A bunch of the polishes are inspired by cats, and the brand name is in memory of one of the creator’s cats. All these photos are taken with flash and under the Ott lite, since it was dark out.
These two polishes are Chocolate Point Siamese and Cinnamon Raisin (the ring finger accent). I thought they complemented each other really well, having the same base colour but with different glitters.
Chocolate Point Siamese is a nude beige slightly shimmery base with brown and holo light blue medium hex glitter, very small brown glitter, and tiny gold sparkles. Cinnamon Raisin has the same base and the two sizes of brown glitter, but also purple and lilac medium hexes and small gold hexes. They both seem to have some holo microglitter in there too, but it’s sort of hard to tell! But there are tiny little flashes of holo-looking sparkle sometimes.
Shown are two coats of each polish, and I found they covered well and the base was smooth. I did have to do some shaking and tilting of the bottle to get out a good amount of glitter, and do some dabbing to distribute it where I wanted it.
Drying time was very good! All photos do include a layer of topcoat. Overall I’m really impressed with these and looking forward to trying the others I got!
Don’t you love the awkward hand pose clutching two mini bottles? Haha 😀
Pretty Serious is a small brand from Australia that makes vegan polishes and cosmetics. I have a few of their polishes but this is the first one I’ve photographed.
Seasonal Sunset is a dark burnt orange jelly base that leans a little brown, with tons of gold and orange glitter in it. My kind of colour!
Two coats used, and the formula was great.
I love it!! And it’s quite unique; I don’t think I have anything else like it!
I thought these two scattered holos went together very well; the purple is Zoya Aurora and the fuchsia is Orly Miss Conduct. These photos are from last fall and I’m not positive how many coats of polish I used – I think it was two for Aurora, and one for Miss Conduct. Both have excellent formulas!
Three Picture Polish posts in a row? Why not! And this one is my favourite polish of the three. 😀
Lagoon is a turquoise jelly polish with scattered holo particles and medium sized turquoise holo hex glitter. Shown above with flash, and in natural light for most of the other photos.
Two coats and no complaints about the formula! It was slightly thick but easily spreadable and self-leveling.
Love, love, love. This one will definitely make my list of favourite polishes released this year!
Another photo with flash:
Today’s Picture Polish beauty is Electric Dream!
Electric Dream is a coral-leaning pink with fine gold shimmer and scattered holo particles.
Shown are two coats. The formula was thicker than Shy Violet’s but in a good way; it was quite easy to handle.
I love the gold shimmer, it just makes this polish extra special!
This polish is a collaboration with Nail Polish Anon blog. Love it!
Picture Polish Shy Violet is a warm, medium purple jelly with sparse scattered holo particles. It’s a fairly sheer jelly, and here it is first at two coats.
Since that was a little patchy, I added a third coat. Even with three coats, it dried very quickly!
This is part of Picture Polish’s blogger collaboration series, this one was created with Glam Polish blog. Great polish shade!
My Halloween mani from yesterday had gotten a few chips by the end of the day, so I decided to redo those nails while leaving the others as they were.
I used Zoya Beatrix, Zoya’s lighter orange texture shade (two coats for this one, as opposed to the one coat for Dhara), and then a layer of the black and white glitter franken that I already had over Zoya Dhara. Followed by topcoat of course, to smooth out all that texture and glitter.
Love these two orange Zoyas together!
