Greetings and Nailutations,
These polishes were obtained in a swap with the owner of Frannie's Nail Elixir. I'm always excited to try new indie brands. This post is a little bittersweet...less than a week ago Fran has announced she is no longer going to make polish to sell (she has a lot going on in her life with her fiancé's health needing some special attention). Family should be first priority so I completely understand. I wish them the best...especially since she has an eye for colors! I have gotten to chat with her on a few occasions and what I found was a creative, passionate, caring and lovely individual. Although these polishes may not be available for purchase, should she open up shop again, I wanted to have a blog post about her initial collection.
Now let's get to some swatches!
First up is Golden Chalice, a golden shimmer polish. Golden Chalice is one of my favorites due to the originality of the color and finish. Formula went on smoothly and applied easily. Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.
Next is Strawberry Meadows, a light magenta pink shimmer polish. Like Golden Chalice, it had perfect formula and applied nice. Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.
Faerie Dust is the next polish and is a dusty olive green shimmer polish. Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.
Raven's Song is a black shimmer polish with hints of holographic rainbow powder that can be seen in the daylight bulb. Raven's Song is a dynamic shimmer polish that really surprised me and became one of my favorites. Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.
Next is North Star, a beautiful yellow shimmer polish. This polish is stunning in the day light bulb and I could see why it was called North Star. Formula was phenomenal and photos show 2 coats for total opacity with shiny top coat.
The last polish is Coral Reef which was a quick favorite, just looking at the bottle. Coral Reef his a coral shimmer polish with hints of pink in the day light bulb. Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat.
Top Coat: Gem Glam Top Coat from www.dreampolish.com
Loves: The shimmer finishes really created a great collection. Golden Chalice, Coral Reef and Raven's Song were my favorite and North Star was a close favorite too. The color selections were original and creative. Formula is perfection and I love that each color only needed 2 coats for total opacity.
Wishes: Obviously I wish that Frannie's Nail Elixir will come back into indie business...I mean look at the finishes and colors she selected!
