Australis Frisky Feathers & July What’s In-die Box?

*Nothing to disclose

Evening! So today I have to show you Australis Frisky Feathers. But before I do, I got the most amazing nail mail: my July What’s In-die Box?!

July What's In-die Box? by Dry, Dammit!

Don’t they look gorgeous? This month is inspired by the Little Miss series (which I am actually not a fan of… I hate the honourific Miss). It’s a really colourful collection. In case you’re not aware, What’s In-die Box? is a subscription box that features five unique Australian indies every month. It really is a great idea. Below I have some bottle shots and my first impressions. I will be swatching them for you over the weekend.

How cool does this look? A sheer purple base with iridescent glitters and large pink dots, large white rectangles, black hexes and black bar glitter.

Clear base with blue and green iridescent glitters and light green hexes, dark green squares, yellow hexes and large pink hexes. I am very impressed with this polish. Such a surprise from Lilypad Lacquer.

Now, moving on from the What’s In-die Box? and onto Australia Frisky Feathers. I stumbled upon this polish yesterday at my local Priceline. It featured in a larger Rockstar Collection display, but when I searched the internet I couldn’t find anything on this collection, not even on the Australis website. But I took a pic of it in my local Priceline just to prove it actually exists!

As you can see from the photo, there are four polishes with this collection. One is a black creme, one is Frisky Feathers and the other two are more generic multi-coloured glitters, which I didn’t think were all too impressive, hence why I didn’t buy them, ha ha.

Frisky Feathers is a clear base with orange and gold small bar glitters, very similar to the Sally Hansen Fuzzy Coat Collection (I showed you All Yarned Up here). Actually, incredibly similar except sparklier, if that is even a word.

I decided to layer Frisky Feathers over one coat of Models Prefer Little Black Dress to replicate the look I assumed Australis wanted people to wear when they popped a black creme in with three glitters. It looked awesome. What you see is two coats of Frisky Feathers over one coat of Models Prefer Little Black Dress. I found the application to be easy, but I would suggest not getting any of the bar glitters to hit your free edge – it’s just annoying when it dries and scratches your clothes!

DETAILS

  • Where to buy: Priceline
  • Cost: AU$7.95 (I got mine on special for AU$6.36)
  • Volume: 10ml

Well this has been a long post but I hope you have enjoyed it. Thanks for reading!

  1. I’m so excited to see how the new In-die Box polishes go, especially the Peita’s Polish I’m a Chatterbox. The Frisky Feathers is amazing, and totally puts me in mind of phoenixes.
