Gloss 'n Sparkle

I'm interrupting my usual schedule of book manis with some swatches of a great Aussie, indie brand, Gloss 'n Sparkle. I contacted the owner about the vegan/cruelty free status and was really pleased to find out they are a-ok!

I ordered two, but I was accidentally sent three different polishes which the owner kindly insisted I keep, and then I was sent the two I ordered:

Unicorn Droppings, Sweet Charity, Cookie Dough, Ice Ice Baby, and Pink Cigarette

Look at all that glitter!

First up is Unicorn Droppings (2 coats) - a milky white polish with large rainbow glitter and micro sparkles. This one is adorable and completely different to any polish I own

This is Sweet Charity (2 coats) - an orange base with small fuchsia and blue glitter. I really like orange so I knew this was one I needed

Next up is Cookie Dough (2 coats) - a polish almost good enough to eat! It's a pale tan base with large brown glitter and micro copper glitter.

Next we have Ice Ice Baby (2 coats over Zoya Dove) - a clear top coat filled with large pale blue, teal, and white glitter as well as micro copper glitter

And lastly, Pink Cigarette (2 coats) - a purpley-pink with small white and black glitter plus large dark orange glitter

I found all of these easy to apply and I liked the variation in the colour and size of the glitter. I'm really impressed with the range and quality of indie nail polish companies, and Gloss 'n Sparkle is one I am looking forward to purchasing from again.

Aussies, you can purchase them via the Etsy store or Femme Fatale Cosmetics. International readers, you can purchase them from Shoppe Eclecticco or Llarowe.
