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.

‘Blue S-teal is the big sister to Do the Magic! but with a shift that is supposed to move through blue, steel blue and teal – but I definitely saw purple edges! This is two coats and super smooth.

‘Butterful’ is a cream polish with two sizes of gold flakes. Three coats gave a really solid opacity, but you might pull it off with two.

‘Elementeal’ is a teal jelly base with teal and copper super holographic micro glitter. This is super sparkly in sunlight, which we had about a second of while I was swatching.

‘Pinktopia’ surprised me because I’m not a big fan of pinks. The holo with the flakes gave it more depth though and I really liked wearing this. 2 coats shown here.

Overall this is a really pretty collection with smooth and lovely formulas. Butterful isn’t quite my cup of tea, but I was particularly surprised by Rain Upon The Moon because I wouldn’t normally go for something so flashy, but good Lord I couldn’t keep my eyes off it! These polishes will be availble from the 1st of September through Grace-full or an international stockist.

Oh, and happy birthday to Grace-full!

    Gorgeous swatches! Butterful is just stunning though I had a feeling it wouldn’t be your style. It does look really pretty on you!!
