True news about nail polish collections usually seems scarce this time of year, so much else going on. But I have three items for you, one of which isn’t terribly new.
First and not so new, a-England’s latest collection is a 4-polish set called Ballerina. They’re light holos — silver, rose, lavender, and a blue-purple that’s darker than the other three. The silver and lavender look awfully similar to my eye. I haven’t bought any a-England polishes in a long time, partly because of the cost but mostly because I kind of (oops) forget about them. I have loved the ones I’ve gotten, smooth as butter and a great holo look.
Vampy Varnish has many photos in her review of the Ballerina collection. Worth a peek. These polishes would also make a pretty one-coat top coat over cremes. In the U.S. you can find a-England at Ninja Polish and some other etailers.
EDIT: More great swatches from The PolishAholic here.
Secondly, I just read about a new line from Misa called MoonBeams Glitters.
Left to right: Atomic Number 29, Super Nova, and New Star. The nerd in me likes that Atomic Number 29 means copper, because that’s its number in the periodic table.
I think all three are gorgeous. They are $10 each on Misa’s web site, the only place they’ll be available. Also, according to Misa’s Facebook page, they’ll be introducing one new special glitter per month. Don’t know how long this release will last.
Hmmm, I like the Misa polishes I’ve bought but they’re notoriously hard for me to find. My only etailer for them in the past, Head2ToeBeauty, hasn’t gotten any new Misas in ages. Also, Misa’s web site, blog, and social media channels are not in my opinion particularly helpful and sometimes aren’t even current. C’mon, Misa, I like your polish — make it easier for us to find out about and get them!
Finally, can you stand another textured collection? Color Club has just introduced Sea Salt.
These are rather beachy colors — peach, gold, light turquoise-blue, silver, teal-green, and white. The green Riviera intrigues me.
Not sure what the textured look is like — matte, semi-matte, sparkly. The set is too new for swatches.
After the holidays I hope to place an order with Head2ToeBeauty and may try one. Love their prices!
