Celestial Cosmetics March 2017 releases

*Press sample

I’m not really sure how to start this post, given my long absence from blogging. Pretty much four months! That’s a new record for me. I guess I’ll try to keep my story short and sweet because I have the March 2017 releases from Celestial Cosmetics to show you, which are way more fun to read about.

Put simply, there’s been a few things that got me down at the place I work and this happened at the same time as finding out my husband and I are expecting our second child (due July!). This combo pretty much just made me feel crappy both mentally and physically and I became super antisocial; even social media I found difficult to use. But I’m feeling a lot better now and I appreciate all the love and support those nearest and dearest to me have provided.

One of those people is the ever-wonderful Nicki, owner and creator over at Celestial Cosmetics. She’s been very supportive and just let me have my own time to get back into the swing of things, which is why I’m here today, to show off the wonderful new array of colours from Celestial for March. Let’s take a look!

Celestial Cosmetics Primal Fear swatched by Dry, Dammit!PRIMAL FEAR

Celestial Cosmetics Primal Fear swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Primal Fear is a purple-based creme with a golden shimmer. I also found up close some sparks of red, which just makes this even more complex! I love how it looks and the formula is perfect. Pictured is two coats without top coat.

Celestial Cosmetics Eye of Envy swatched by Dry, Dammit!EYE OF ENVY

Celestial Cosmetics Eye of Envy swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Eye of Envy is a green jelly-based polish with colour-shifting flakes and colour-shifting iridescent microglitter. I like the look of Eye of Envy out and about rather than indoors because that’s when all the glitter comes to play. This is three thin coats with a top coat of Celestial Cosmetics Light Year Quick Dry Top Coat.

Celestial Cosmetics Android Tears swatched by Dry, Dammit!ANDROID TEARS

Celestial Cosmetics Android Tears swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Android Tears is a soft purple-leaning grey creme with pink to violet colour-shifting shimmer. This is such a soft and delicate polish. It also is a nice variation of a neutral polish, if you have a workplace or occasion to consider. This is two coats without top coat.

Celestial Cosmetics Android Tears swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Celestial Cosmetics Twisted Selection swatched by Dry, Dammit!TWISTED SELECTION

Celestial Cosmetics Twisted Selection swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Twisted Selection is a blue-to-purple duochrome. The formula was easy to work with, but of course I still managed to leave some brush strokes in, so keep an eye our for that when you’re applying and don’t go too heavy-handed like me! This is two coats without a top coat.

Celestial Cosmetics Twisted Selection swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Celestial Cosmetics Mesmerised swatched by Dry, Dammit!MESMERISED

Celestial Cosmetics Mesmerised swatched by Dry, Dammit!

I found Mesmerised so difficult to capture! I ended up taking the shots indoors, otherwise the glitter seemed to disappear in the harsh sun. Mesmerised is a dark blue-based jelly polish packed with iridescent colour-shifting glitter. The glitter is really pretty in this one – I can see how Nicki thought of the name! You’ll need a thick top coat for this one as it does eat the top coat! Also, wear a good base coat because it can stain and there’s nothing worse than blue “natural” nails! I’m wearing three thin coats with a generous top coat of Light Year.

Celestial Cosmetics Mesmerised swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Celestial Cosmetics Walk of Shame swatched by Dry, Dammit!WALK OF SHAME

Celestial Cosmetics Walk of Shame swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Walk of Shame is another stunning duochrome, which looks quite coppery but then shifts between gold, orange and a rusty red. Up close it has these stunning pinkish sparks and I think it would be a really complimentary polish for most people. This is two coats without top coat.

Celestial Cosmetics Walk of Shame swatched by Dry, Dammit!

DETAILS

So, what do you think? The standouts for me areΒ Android Tears and Walk of Shame. I mean, who doesn’t love a good shimmer or duochrome? Thanks for sticking with me these past few months and as always, thanks for reading! It’s great to be back.

Celestial Cosmetics Halloween Story Trio Collection

*Press sample

Me again – bringing you the second trio from Celestial Cosmetics in time for Halloween (the first being The Curse of Miss Ives Collection). The Halloween Story Trio Collection is named so because the three names of the polishes create a short story. These polishes are very Halloween appropriate, so if you love themed polishes, get comfy and read on!

Celestial Cosmetics Halloween Story Trio Collection swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Celestial Cosmetics Halloween Story Trio Collection Sinister Squashling swatched by Dry, Dammit!

SINISTER SQUASHLING

Celestial Cosmetics Halloween Story Trio Collection Sinister Squashling swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Sinister Squashling is a neon orange jelly with a gold overlay, colour-shifting sparks and black holo microglitter. It’s perfect for the base of pumpkins or even just on its own for the big day. It’s very bright and I’ve also learnt recently it glows under UV lighting. Awesome much? Formula was wonderful and what you see here is two coats with a top coat of Celestial Cosmetics Light Year Quick Dry Top Coat.

Celestial Cosmetics Halloween Story Trio Collection Chases The Fairy swatched by Dry, Dammit!

CHASES THE FAIRY

Celestial Cosmetics Halloween Story Trio Collection Chases The Fairy swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Chases The Fairy is a neon green jelly with black shred glitter. This one also reacts to UV light. In my pictures it looks like there’s a blue tinge to the colour but I think it’s just my camera not being able to handle the intensity of the neon green. Formula on this one was good too and the shred glitter played nicely. I’m wearing two coats with a top coat of Light Year.

Celestial Cosmetics Halloween Story Trio Collection Into The Blood Woods swatched by Dry, Dammit!

INTO THE BLOOD WOODS

Celestial Cosmetics Halloween Story Trio Collection Into The Blood Woods swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Into The Blood Woods is a teal-based jelly with cherry microglitter and rose gold flakes. This is my favourite from the trio as it’s so much more detailed than what you’d expect. The formula on this one is perfect but it did stain my nails so you’ll need to wear a good base coat underneath. I’m wearing two coats with a top coat of Light Year.

Celestial Cosmetics Halloween Story Trio Collection Into The Blood Woods swatched by Dry, Dammit!

DETAILS

Like The Curse of Miss Ives Collection, you can pick them up from tomorrow (25 September in Australia and 24 September at the international store). These are a lot of fun and I think there’s plenty to do with them come Halloween. Thanks for reading!

Celestial Cosmetics Love Never Dies Collection

*Press sample

Hi there. Tonight I bring you swatches and my thoughts on the Celestial Cosmetics Love Never Dies Collection, which launches tomorrow on both the Australian and international Celestial sites. It’s inspired by the costumes from the 1992 movie Bram Stoker’s Dracula and is a collaboration collection for Nicki’s birthday (the maker behind Celestial). Every birthday Nicki does a collaboration collection and this year it’s with one of her good friends. Read on for more!

Celestial Cosmetics Love Never Dies Collection The Devil's Concubine swatched by Dry, Dammit!

THE DEVIL’S CONCUBINE

The Devil’s Concubine is a stunning orange linear holo that has a gorgeous flame. It’s my favourite from the collection and inspired by the vibrant orange clothes the character Lucy Westenra once she’s a vampire. It was so smooth to apply and I really think this would make an awesome summer polish – especially on the toes! I’m becoming more and more a fan of orange so I was pretty pleased this vibrant colour was included in the collection. This is just two easy coats with one coat of Celestial Cosmetics Light Year Quick Dry Top Coat.

Celestial Cosmetics Love Never Dies Collection The Brides swatched by Dry, Dammit!

THE BRIDES

The Brides is a dark gold base with gold colour-shifting flakes and green shimmer. This one’s based on the clothes of the brides of Dracula. It looks like it would be a bit bumpy once applied, but it was actually so smooth. It reminds me of a pot of gold. I’m wearing two coats with a top coat of Light Year.

Celestial Cosmetics Love Never Dies Collection The Brides swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Celestial Cosmetics Love Never Dies Collection The Blood is the Life swatched by Dry, Dammit!

THE BLOOD IS THE LIFE

The Blood Is The Life – wowsers! Look at that intense red. I can definitely see blood here; can you? This has a slight duochrome effect, going from a dark red to a copper. It’s quite a slight shift, but I think I was able to capture it well. The inspiration behind this one is drawn from the battle armour Prince Vlad wears, the gown Mina wears when she dines with the Count and the blood Dracula requires to remain alive. I’m wearing two coats with a top coat of Light Year.

Celestial Cosmetics Love Never Dies Collection The Blood is the Life swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Celestial Cosmetics Love Never Dies Collection God's Madmen swatched by Dry, Dammit!

GOD’S MADMEN

God’s Madmen is a really interesting polish. It looks much more vibrant in real life, more like in the macro shot below. It’s a metallic grey with gold flakes and gold holo microglitter. I found it to look quite metallic on, so if you’re not the biggest fan of that finish you may not like this one. Nevertheless it does apply easily – and without noticeable brush strokes, too. This one is inspired by the dark clothes the men wear when they hunt the Count. I’m wearing two coats with a top coat of Light Year.

Celestial Cosmetics Love Never Dies Collection God's Madmen swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Celestial Cosmetics Love Never Dies Collection Oceans of Time swatched by Dry, Dammit!

OCEANS OF TIME

Oceans of Time is a dark blue base with silver shimmer and silver flakes. I really like how the flakes look in this one. They’re quite delicate yet edgy and I think it matches the inspiration of Dracula’s blue lenses of the glasses he wears in London very well. Plus, it’s a bit different too in terms of the match up for a Dracula-inspired polish. My “original” idea would have been red or black. I’m wearing two coats with a top coat of Light Year.

Celestial Cosmetics Love Never Dies Collection Mina swatched by Dry, Dammit!

MINA

Finally we have Mina, a light mint holo with white sparks. In fact, I found this colour to be almost a neon pastel. If you’re a lover of green then you’ll think this is divine. Mina is inspired by the clothes of the character Wilhelmina Murray. It applied like butter but it does need to build up gradually, so I’d recommend thin coats. This is three coats with a top coat of Light Year.

Celestial Cosmetics Love Never Dies Collection Mina swatched by Dry, Dammit!

DETAILS

I’m a big fan of this collection – it’s surprisingly bright and cheerful for a collection inspired largely by a horror film. I’ve never actually watched Bram Stoker’s Dracula so I’m thinking I probably should now. If you can only get one from the collection I recommend The Devil’s Concubine, for sure! What’s you’re favourite from the collection? Let me know your thoughts below. Thanks for reading!

Celestial Cosmetics We Breathe Fire Collection

*Press sample

Why hello! Today I bring you swatches and my thoughts on Celestial Cosmetics’ latest collection, the We Breathe Fire Collection, which also launched today. This collection has a beautiful origin story. It came about when Nicki (the mastermind behind Celestial) and her son got together to bring Nicki’s interest of dragons and her son’s favourite book series (the Inheritance Cycle) together. How lovely! I hope my son and I will work as collaboratively when he’s older. But, before I start, there’s good news for Celestial’s international fans – there’s a whole new international site with a whole new address: celestialcosmetics.com. It’s definitely worth checking out. Now let’s jump right in!

Celestial Cosmetics We Breathe Fire Collection Firnen nail art by Dry, Dammit!

Celestial Cosmetics We Breathe Fire Collection Firnen nail art by Dry, Dammit!

First up I wanted to show you some nail art I did with two of the polishes – Firnen and Thorn – because I’m so super proud of it. How I didn’t smudge the polish when I applied Thorn on top of Firnen I have no idea, but I so love this look! Really easy and all I used was some eBay nail tip guides and gold studs.

Celestial Cosmetics We Breathe Fire Collection Firnen swatched by Dry, Dammit!

FIRNEN

Firnen is a forest green polish with a sprinkling of holo and green-gold colour-shifting flakes. I found it had a stunning blue overlay as well in some lighting. As you know, I’m not the biggest green nail polish fan (yes, I pretty much say this every time I wear a green polish) but Firnen is incredible. I love its depth and delicacy. So much so I used it for my nail art above, ha ha. In these swatches though I wore two coats with a top coat of Celestial Cosmetics Light Year Quick Dry Top Coat.

Celestial Cosmetics We Breathe Fire Collection Glaedr swatched by Dry, Dammit!

GLAEDR

Wow, Glaedr. This is my favourite from the collection. I really love its strong copper lean. It’s a linear holo with bronze flakes and holo orange microglitter. The microglitter in this is a bit bumpy so you’ll definitely need a top coat. The microglitter also a bit awkwardly noticeable in the sun – breaking up the linear look a bit – but it’s not disastrous. The formula on this one was the thickest from the collection for me and you need a steady hand when applying. I’m wearing two coats with a top coat of Light Year.

Celestial Cosmetics We Breathe Fire Collection Glaedr swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Celestial Cosmetics We Breathe Fire Collection Thorn swatched by Dry, Dammit!

THORN

As the name suggests, Thorn is a polish that packs a punch. It’s a dark purple linear holo with rose flakes and red sparks. To me it’s definitely more purple, but to others it’s a black base. The flame on Thorn is lovely and really makes it appear “softer” than what it is. I’m wearing two coats with a top coat of Light Year.

Celestial Cosmetics We Breathe Fire Collection Thorn swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Celestial Cosmetics We Breathe Fire Collection Jarnunvosk swatched by Dry, Dammit!

JARNUNVOSK

Ah, Jarnunvosk. So very delicate and so very difficult to capture! It is a soft gold nude with gold flakes and shimmer, as well as the tiniest bit of holo. It’s a lot more delicate than what you see, that’s for sure! I love the gold flakes in this one, it really makes it a bit different. I’m wearing two coats with a top coat of Light Year.

Celestial Cosmetics We Breathe Fire Collection Jarnunvosk swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Celestial Cosmetics We Breathe Fire Collection Saphira swatched by Dry, Dammit!

SAPHIRA

This is Saphira, a mid-tone blue linear holo with blue flakes. It’s close to purple for me in some lights and it’s a darling up close – you can see the teal really pop. This suits my interest in blue a lot – blue, but not too blue. I’m wearing two coats with a top coat of Light Year.

Celestial Cosmetics We Breathe Fire Collection Saphira swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Celestial Cosmetics We Breathe Fire Collection Shruikan swatched by Dry, Dammit!

SHRUIKAN

Last up is Shruikan. A black linear holo! Wowsers. Plus, it also has some freaking fantastic colour-shifting flakes. There are some lovely green flakes in there that I wish I could eat! The holo in this one is pretty incredible and I think it’s the first indie polish I have that’s a black holo. We need more of these, please! This is two coats with a top coat of Light Year.

Celestial Cosmetics We Breathe Fire Collection Shruikan swatched by Dry, Dammit!

DETAILS

The formula on these were consistent, bar Glaedr that needed a little bit of extra care. Glaedr is still my favourite though, so don’t let that deter you if you like the look of it. This is a moody collection, but there’s a lot to love. Thanks for reading!

Emily de Molly Carve My Initials

*Nothing to disclose

Good evening! Tonight’s a short and sweet post to bring you Emily de Molly Carve My Initials. You probably know I’m not the biggest green fan but this polish looks so complex when it’s on – I love it!

Emily de Molly Carve My Initials swatched by Dry, Dammit!

I just love that macro shot, don’t you!? Carve My Initials has a teal jelly base that’s packed with green and purple flakies and microglitter. It’s very easy to apply and I love that it’s not an over-the-top green. It’s classy without looking like alien fingers, ha! I’m wearing two coats with a top coat of Seche.

I really like the contrast of the purple in this polish; green and purple are just so lovely together, don’t you reckon? Let me know your thoughts. Thanks for reading!

Celestial Cosmetics The Valyrio Collection

*Press sample

Today is the eve of Celestial Cosmetics’ third birthday, which is no better time to show you my swatches of Celestial’s latest release. It’s Celestial’s third Game of Thrones-inspired collection, this time called The Valyrio Collection (I’ve swatched Game of Thrones Collection here). It’s a collaboration with nail blogger Christine from Serenity Nails and features six polishes; three duochromes and three holos with names inspired by the Valyria language used throughout the books and TV show. I was also lucky in that I recently got my new Canon macro lens in the mail, so I have some macros of these polishes, too! (Although I have to get used to taking macros with one hand as the lens is super heavy!). Take a look.

Celestial Cosmetics Dracarys swatched by Dry, Dammit!DRACARYS

Celestial Cosmetics Dracarys swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Celestial Cosmetics Dracarys swatched by Dry, Dammit!

I’m going to start with my favourite from the collection: Dracarys (meaning “Dragon fire”). This is a wonderfully warm red linear holo with red microglitter. It’s a stunning polish on and I’m super impressed with how the red microglitter adds a bit more depth to it. I’m wearing it with two coats and no top coat and I didn’t find it gritty at all.

Celestial Cosmetics Kirimvos swatched by Dry, Dammit!KIRIMVOS

Celestial Cosmetics Kirimvos swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Celestial Cosmetics Kirimvos swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Kirimvos was a polish I wasn’t sure if I would like, but once on the nail, wowsers! It’s a bright minty-turquoise green linear holo with opal flakies. It means “Thank you”. The inclusion of the opal flakies reminds me of reptile skin – in a good way! Again, another polish that has a lot of depth. I’m wearing two coats without top coat.

Celestial Cosmetics Sesir Kipi swatched by Dry, Dammit!SESIR KIPI

Celestial Cosmetics Sesir Kipi swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Celestial Cosmetics Sesir Kipi swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Sesir Kipi means “And now, we ride”. I quite like this; as soon as I saw it, it reminded me of a midnight blue, so the name goes nicely with the thought of riding into the night. This is a deep blue linear holo with a crisp silver-green flame. I’m wearing two coats without top coat.

Celestial Cosmetics Kastamiro Damior swatched by Dry, Dammit!KASTAMIRO DAMIOR

Celestial Cosmetics Kastamiro Damior swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Celestial Cosmetics Kastamiro Damior swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Kastamiro Damior (meaning “Rains of Castamere”) looked like it was going to be some kind of blurple duochrome in the bottle, but when on the nail, it moves from blue to teal to green. I hardly saw any purple at all, but perhaps I didn’t have the right sunlight? This formula has a slightly thinner consistency than the others in the collection, so when applying it you either need to do lots of thin coats or a couple of thick coats. I chose to do two thick coats without top coat.

Celestial Cosmetics Lilagon swatched by Dry, Dammit!LILAGON

Celestial Cosmetics Lilagon swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Celestial Cosmetics Lilagon swatched by Dry, Dammit!

This stunner is Lilagon, which means “To dance”. It’s another complex duochrome with a strong woody green base that changes ever so slowly over to gold in the right light. I’m wearing two coats without top coat.

Celestial Cosmetics Daria Zaldrizoti swatched by Dry, Dammit!DARIA ZALDRIZO

Celestial Cosmetics Daria Zaldrizoti swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Celestial Cosmetics Daria Zaldrizoti swatched by Dry, Dammit!

Last but not least we have Daria Zaldrizoti that means “The Dragon Queen”. This is a classic red to pink duochrome and it’s got the most lovely glow in the sun. There have been some comparisons of this polish and another of Celestial’s polishes called Mother of Dragons from Nicki’s first Game of Thrones collection. I suggest you Google it to see what you think. I hear they’re quite similar, but different, too! This is two coats without top coat.

DETAILS

So there you go, another outstanding collection from Celestial Cosmetics. It really has been such fun bringing you Celestial’s new collections for the past 10 months or so and I’d like to again thank Nicki for asking to work with me and congratulate her on her third year of Celestial. Happy birthday, Celestial Cosmetics! Thanks for reading!

Celestial Cosmetics Unicorns and Rainbows Collection & a bit of nail art

*Press sample

Hello! Tonight I have another wonderful collection from Celestial Cosmetics to show you called the Unicorns and Rainbows Collection. If you love the look of old-school holos before they became mainstream and experimented with, then you’re going to love this collection. It’s five simply stunning and elegant linear holos that just scream when in the sun. Let’s take a look! (Oh, and I also have a bit of nail art at the end. Enjoy!).

UNICORN FIELDS

Wowsers, what a polish to start with! Unicorn Fields is an amazing polish. While I’m not big on green polishes, I have to say this is lovely. It’s a vibrant green linear holo and totally different to the other colours in this collection. I would have prefered a pastel green/mint to match the other colours, but if you love greens this is a nice surprise. This is two coats without top coat. If you apply your nail polish thick this could be a one-coater – the formula was that easy!

SNOW UNICORN

Snow Unicorn is a traditional light grey linear holo. In the shade it has a strong steel grey colour, so it’s not overly “flat” when not in direct light. Application was wonderful, but I did find this more sheer than the other polishes in the collection. This is three coats without top coat.

RAINBOWS AND UNICORNS UNITE

Rainbows and Unicorns Unite is my favourite from the collection. It’s a soft lavender linear holo with a green overlay, which creates a duochrome effect when not in direct light of purple to steel blue (I tried to show it in the last photo. Fail!). This is two coats without top coat and like the others, the formula was divine!

CAKES AND RAINBOWS

Cakes and Rainbows is a gold linear holo. It’s a very neutral gold and it could even be a “nude” holo. It was so easy to apply as well! This is two coats without top coat. It really is a beautiful polish!

FARTING RAINBOWS

Farting Rainbows could be a one-coat wonder if I could apply my polish better. πŸ™‚ It’s a periwinkle blue linear holo with a soft purple overlay. Very similar to Rainbows and Unicorns Unite but you still need them both I think! Personally, I don’t like the name of this polish but I can see the humour factor to it. This is two coats without top coat and let me tell you – this definitely has the standout formula of the collection. It just glides onto the nail so smoothly.

I also did a little bit of nail art with Farting Rainbows. Using Emily de Molly stamping plate EDM18 and white stamping polish by Konad, I stamped a quick design onto half of my nails and then added some silver dot studs from the essence Dark Romance Nail Art Decoration Kit to the border of the stamping. I quite like how it came out! See what you think:

The Unicorns and Rainbows Collection launches mid-March. A date will be confirmed once polishes have been received in the US for the international site. If you want to keep track of that, I suggest you join the Celestial’s Stars Facebook group to keep up to date. Let me know what you think of this collection. Will you be buying any polishes?
