Grace-full Nail Polish ‘What a Girl Wants’ collection

It’s been a while, so long in fact that I am now in a different decade! Today though I have the 2nd birthday collection from Grace-full Nail Polish, a lovely Australian indie brand. The collection is called ‘What a Girl Needs (the follow up to ‘What a Girl Wants’) and consists of 6 polishes that were derived form suggestions from the Grace-full Facebook fan group.

Introducing my Pretty Serious collaboration polish: “Iktsuarpok”

Pretty Serious Stop, Collaborate and Listen collection - MY Polly Polish Collaboration 'Iktsuarpok'

It’s been about two years in the making, plus two visits to Kaz and Ben of Pretty Serious Cosmetics in Australia (that’s not an essential part of working on a collaboration shade I’ll grant you, but it was as good an excuse as any to visit friends) but ‘iktsuarpok’ is finally here. I hope you all love it as much as I do!

Swatch & Review: Illamasqua ‘Melange’ + gradient

Illamasqua 'Melange' nail polish on pollypolish.com
