Hello there! Tonight I have a big bag of Celestial Cosmetics goodness for you. At the end of April it will be Celestial Cosmetics’ third birthday. Happy birthday, Celestial! This is so incredibly great for a small business and an Australian one at that, too. To celebrate, creator Nicki has made a birthday polish (which she does every year) called Celestial Dream. I cannot think of a better way to celebrate a birthday – who doesn’t like nail polish! πŸ˜€ I have this, as well as the LE for April and Spell Wood to show you tonight. Let’s take a look.

As I said above, Celestial Dream is a birthday polish to celebrate Celestial Cosmetics’ third birthday on April 25. This is a true purple linear holo and it’s so refreshingly delicate for a holo! It’s very reminiscent of the recent Unicorns and Rainbows Collection, in that the holo just shines with any hint of light, but it’s really a worthwhile standout on its own as well. As a purple lover I majorly love it! Best of all, it’s super shiny. What you see here is just two coats without top coat. Adding a top coat would make it sing.

This stunner is the LE for April 2016. It’s based on the sweet pea and I have to admit, Nicki did such a wonderful job here! Wearing this polish was a lot of fun, mainly because in the shade it’s a subtle duochrome from purple to deep green, but it also has the most beautiful green flecks that just make the polish “pop” that little bit more. Out in the sun it’s a straight-up deep purple linear holo with a bit of a green flame. It’s a very special polish and one I highly recommend. This is two coats with a top coat of Seche.

Spell Wood is an exclusive polish for Nail Whisperer’s March My Favourite Things box. I’d never heard of the box before, but basically it’s a monthly box of four indies that come together under one theme, with March’s being “walking through the enchanted forest”. It’s a deep green scattered holo with bronze and green flecks throughout. The flame on this one is lovely and golden. I’m wearing two coats without top coat – again, another shiny stunner! Such a shame this is an exclusive, but I wanted to show you anyway since Nicki was kind enough to provide me with a sample.
