Wow wow wow oh wow was what I said when I opened the package that contained these polishes. These are the handmade creations from Karine and they are way better and prettier than I expected and I apologise now that my camera does not do these justice.
These polishes are jellies with flakes and glitter. On her blog she held a poll asking which of her polishes was your favourite and the one with the most votes would be the one that you would receive for free if you purchased 2 or more of her polishes. Yes for free ! Very generous of her.
|Noir Desir, Ooh La La, Naiade|
Noir Desir won the vote so I'll start with that one. This one is black jelly with flakes and glitter. I layered this over a black creme except for the pinky which is 2 coats of Noir Desir on it's own.
|Shade - Noir Desir over black, pinky is Noir Desir 2 coats on it's own|
|Partial Sun - Noir Desir over black, pinky is Noir Desir 2 coats on it's own|
My other purchase was a way off one for me. Normally I stick to purples and pinks but this one is a turquoise colour called Naiade. I layered this over China Glaze Gussied Up Green and I really liked that. I actually tried this one over alot of different greeny bluey colours and I liked all of them.
Then my 9 year old daughter, Montana, said I should put them over white. Don't know where she came up with that one from but they look great over white!

* I found them really easy to apply compared to some other jellies.
* These ones stay where you put them.
* You get a good amount of glitter and flakies on the brush.
* You get good coverage and don't have to do any patching up later.
* They spread very well and easily.
Karine is currently out of stock on most colours but is still taking orders as backorders. Which is a really good way to operate because it means you will get what you want and don't have to stalk Etsy and end up missing out.
I hope you like these as much as I do and hop on over to Karine's page to see her other colours.
Thanks for reading
