I have been dying to get this review out to my lovely readers for a couple of weeks now. I received this set right at Christmastime and I was also recovering from being sick most of December. My sweet hubby just has double carpal tunnel surgery the other day, well, on our anniversary! Needless to say, we are healing up nicely, my company has departed and the dust has settled in our house. 😉 I’m so excited to finally share these four gorgeous polishes with you. The Baroness X Dreamscape Part II collection is a simply put, “DREAMY”! Let’s take a look at these fabulous indie creations!
The formulas are smooth and glide nicely over any basecoat (and it is recommended that you use a deep, dark or black underneath to really show how these babies pop). They dry fairly smooth and I recommend a thin topcoat. They wear really well. After swatching all four of these, I wore one of them for full week, plus a couple of days. Although easy to remove, I had very little tip wear and no chipping. On with the Dreamscapes!
Mark your calendars for March 21st! This oh-so-spring collection from indie brand Chloe & Bella, the 2015 Spring Collection, will go on sale and you don’t want to miss any of the six mix ‘n match set. Here they are!
The formulas of the creams were consistent and easy to work with. No flooding and not overly thick with a nicely splaying brush. Although it’s hard to capture the iridescent flashes within each of the creams, believe me, they are there in full sun and well lit rooms. The glitter toppers are great formulas as well, each in clear bases. No fishing here as these formulas have plenty of multi-sized glitters without being chunky on the nail. I found that they applied so smoothly you really don’t need a glitter filling top coat for any of them.
Let’s start off with the Tangerines! Tangerine Cream…
Tangerine Twinkle, her outspoken sister!
Everyone needs a dreamy pink in their springtime collection. Here we have Strawberry Cream.
And to top it off like a Sundae, here is Strawberry Twinkle!
And finally, the Aubergines! Now, I had to look up this word because frankly, I didn’t know what it meant! 😉 Aubergine is actually another word for eggplant! Now, although this could be a pastel version of that deep purple squash, you’ll see the true eggplant shade in it’s sister’s glitter. Here is Aubergine Cream.
And paired with the cream this glitter is too gorgeous. Here is the last of the collection Aubergine Twinkle.
Reminiscent of Easter egg colors and springtime blooms, you’ll definitely want this collection. I highly recommend them!
The polishes go live for sale on the Chloe & Bella website beginning March 21, 2015 and will retail for $7.50 each.
I can’t say enough about this amazing collection! Chloe & Bella polishes have never disappointed me and they are a great value! This is why indie brands flat out rock. They are always innovating. Let me know which ones you will be buying. I love hearing from you.
I’m telling you, this has been a fabulous swatching week for me and every polish I’ve used have been out of this world. I especially love the care and attention to detail my indie girls put into their fabulous products. Chloe & Bella polishes are amazing and these four I have to share with you speak for themselves. So I will just load you up with photos, starting now!
Wet your appetite? Here we go! Starting with Dragon’s Skin! It’s a gorgeous multi colored metallic flakie polish, and be sure to check out it’s sister polish Dragon’s Breath!
Next up are three stunning multichrome polishes (see descriptions in the photos), Jasper, Tiger’s Eye and Peacock!
Well, there you have it! I am always seriously blown away by Chloe & Bella polishes. If you haven’t discovered the wonderfulness that is indie polish, this is a fabulous one to start with. Have you tried them? Which ones do you have? I love hearing from you.
It’s not too early to start thinking about your manis for Valentines Day. A brand new set of Valentine themed jelly and crelly based glitter polishes from Chloe & Bella will be available to order January 14, 2015. These are jam packed and so fun, whether you use them for an accent nail or a full on lovey dovey mani!
I recommend using a good gel like or glossy top coat on these. It really sets them off and gives them a glitter floating effect. First we have a sweetheart pink called Devotion.
And how sexy is this Desire?! 😉 It reminds me of lingerie!
So, what is your hearts desire? Will you be rocking a sexy or sweet mani this Valentines?
And now for the rest of the story! 😉 What a fun collection this has been. Such perfectly fall-like color combos with these glitters. Here is the rest of the Autumn 2014 Collection by Chloe & Bella.
Ranunculus may be difficult to pronounce but it’s easy on the eyes! This is the PERFECT Halloween glitter!
Ranunculus is described as, “a bright fall and halloween-perfect glitter-packed polish. The glitters in this polish are nearly all holographic shiners. Glitters include: black/orange holo hex, red/orange hex, and orange squares.”
Everyone loves Sunflowers! Those impressive yellow blooms are one of my faves. Brilliant on the nails too and I love those added golden flakes.
Sunflower is described as, “a super-bright yellow glitter polish. The glitters in this polish are primarily matte with a couple metallic glitters to add depth. Glitters include: yellow dot, yellow/brown hex, and brown square.”
Strawflower brings me back to the early period of my arts and crafts days. I always bought them at the hobby store, not knowing they were real flowers! I wish I’d known, I’d have been growing them for my crafts. This orangey flower is great for fall decor, and snazzy for your autumn manicures. This one has a orange jelly base so you can layer it in 2-3 coats alone, or over another color as I did here, using orange.
Strawflower is described as, “a warm orange jelly-based, gold holo glitter-packed polish. The glitters in this polish are nearly all holographic shiners. Glitters include: gold holo star, gold/red/orange holo hex, and yellow/brown square.”
These along with my previous post featuring the other three shades of the Autumn 2014 Collection, will be available for purchase tomorrow, September 15! Enjoy 🙂
I have the gorgeous Autumn 2014 Collection from indie polish company, Chloe & Bella, and you’re going to love them! There are six glitters and I’ll be presenting them in two posts. I seriously have had so much fun swatching these girls! They will go live for sale on the Chloe & Bella store on Sept. 15. I wanted to get these posted earlier but my week did not go as planned!
The first three of the set of six to tempt you!
It was hard to choose which one to start with. So I basically closed my eyes and pointed! Here is African Daisy painted over a deep purple and gold accent nail.
African Daisy is described as, “a lovely warm glitter loaded top coat. The glitters in this polish are primarily matte, with just a couple sparkling holo glitters to give it some depth. The glitters include: magenta/yellow/black dots, purple diamonds, and peach/orange/ black hex.”
Here is Brown Pansy. I painted one coat of her over a chocolate brown gloss.
Brown Pansy is described as, “a very autumn-ish polish with its warm fall colors. The glitters in this polish are all matte. The glitters include: burgundy/purple/brown hex and yellow/red square.”
And last in this installment is Fall Dahlia. Aren’t these gorgeous?!
Fall Dahlia is described as, “super-sparkly fall colored glitter bomb. The glitters in this polish are primarily holographic shiners, with just a couple matte glitters to give it depth. Glitters include: pink/bright pink/gold holo hex, yellow/gray/purple/maroon hex, and yellow dots.”
All these formulas go on smooth and one coat over a base is perfect. Multiple coats with a clear topcoat will give you quite the 3D effect.
Come back tomorrow night for the other three in the collection. Remember, the collection goes live on September 15th!
