Fox And Owl Polish Swatch and Review Installment 1

Greetings and Nailutations!

*Press Sample*
I have a special treat today (well actually for the next 3 blogs).  For the next 3 blog posts, I will be going through Fox And Owl Polishes.  Fox And Owl Polish is handmade polish out of Melbourne Australia.  Now let's get to some swatches!

USE CODE: BEGINNAILS15 to get 15% off order $20+(in AUD) valid thru May 31st.

First up is Sirene, which is a pastel glitter topper that is perfect for spring.  It contains light pink large circles and two sizes of hexes as well as light turquoise-mint medium and large size circles, silver hexes, stars AND micro iridescent glitter!  Photos below show 1 coat over a pink and mint colored undie with a shiny topcoat.  The best thing is that there was zero glitter fishing and this was using mini bottles.

Next is Purrrr, which is part of the Pastel Collection.  Purr is a light pink glitter crelly containing three sizes of circle glitters with a turquoise-mint palette and light grey colored stars.  I love a colorful glitter crelly.  Photos show 2 coats and shiny topcoat.

Pretty Kitty is also part of the Pastel Collection and is a white glitter crelly.  Pretty Kitty is full of lavender and light pink circle and hex glitters.  This delicate polish is shown in photos with 2 coats and a shiny topcoat.

Next is Starship, which is a glitter topper full of  iridescent micro glitter, black, lavender, purple, neon pink hexes in several sizes, silver shards and neon pink stars.  This vibrant, exciting glitter topper is shown below with 2 coats over a lavender undie and a shiny topcoat.  I experienced no glitter fishing because the mini bottle was packed full of glitter.

Lastly is Wowza and literally…it is WOW!  A purple glitter jelly containing lavender, silver hexes and light lavender hearts and iridescent glitter.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny topcoat and also with matte topcoat.

Loves: All Fox And Owl Polishes are 5 free, so they do not contain 5 of the nasty chemicals that can be found in polish.  I love that they are all pretty and girly, yet fun and edgy with a surprise in them - I was surprised to find stars and hearts in them.  Another added plus is that there was zero glitter fishing in any of these polishes.  I grabbed 5 random polishes and it is great to see an indie maker that can successfully make quality crellies, jellies AND glitter toppers.  Formulas were great and easy to work with on all.

Wishes: I loved the the color combinations, but I wish the stars in Purr and the hearts in Wowza were a bolder color so they pop a little more - I love to see the presence of a large glitter shape.

Fox And Owl Polish can be bought on Etsy and make sure to follow on instagram (@foxandowlpolish) and Facebook for release dates, photos and sales.  They do ship within Australia and to the U.S.

What is your favorite?

Happy Polishing,
