K*Sea Gale's Nails Seven Grandfather Teachings Collection Swatch and Review

Greetings and Nailutations,

*Press Sample*
Today I will be sharing the Seven Grandfather Teachings Collection from K*Sea Gale's Nails.  K*Sea Gale's Nails recently rebranded from Super Nails and is releasing six (yes 6!) new collections on May 1st to celebrate.  The Seven Grandfather Teachings Collection contains 7 holographic polishes inspired by a Native American story that KC's (owner of K*Sea Gale's Nails) husband's tribe, the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe publish in their tribal newspaper.

Now let's get to the swatches!

First up is Wisdom, a purple holo with amazing coverage.  The Seven Grandfather Teachings state "To live with wisdom is to acquire and use experiences as guides for making equitable and mature decisions."  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat in filtered light and a daylight bulb to show off the holo.

Next is Love, a magenta holo that applied perfectly.  The Seven Grandfather Teachings state "To live our lives with love is to understand our capacity to realize, empathize, and further the needs of others."  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat in filtered light and a daylight bulb.

Respect is next, a soft green holo.  "To live with respect is to give mutual consideration for shared and differing ideas as well as for the world around us" is what the Seven Grandfather Teachings teach.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat in both filtered light and a daylight bulb.

Bravery is a red-orange holo and the Seven Grandfather Teachers say "To be brave and have courage is to recognize our moral and mental strength and to do what is appropriate."  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat in filtered light and daylight bulb to enhance the holo effect.


The orange holo is called Honesty.  What I like about Honesty is that its a soft shade, so it is totally work appropriate.  Photos show 2 coat with shiny top coat in filtered and a day light bulb.  The Seven Grandfather Teachings says "To be honest is to recognize that we have the ability to live our lives with honor and integrity."

Humility is next, a yellow holo.  "To live with humility is to recognize that we are all equal, we all make mistakes, we all like to have our success rewarded and to put others before ourselves" is the wise words of the Seven Grandfather Teachings.  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat with filtered light and a daylight bulb.

The last polish of the collection is called Truth, a blue holo.  The Seven Grandfather Teachings states "To live in truth is to recognize the difference between right and wrong and to be faithful to ourselves as well as the world around us even when the right way is not the easiest way."  Photos show 2 coats with shiny top coat with filtered light and daylight bulb.

Shiny top coat: Gem Glam Top Coat from Dream Polish

Loves:  FORMULA!  These 7 holos applied absolutely perfect and required little to no clean up during application with the easy control brush/formula combination.  I love the message and inspiration of these polishes - self reflection is always important.  My favorites of the collection are Wisdom (because anything purple is a favorite) and Bravery.

Wishes: I can't wait to see the new branding releases!  With this collection, I wouldn't have changed a thing or wished anything different.

  3. New brand for me but awesome shades. All six are fabulous.

  4. I've never heard from this brand, not even with the old name. This is a very pretty rainbow of colours!

  5. So many great indie brands that I've never heard of before. But these polishes certainly pack a punch. That sparkle is amazing! So fine and beautiful! Love it!

  6. OMG!! Those colors are absolutely gorgeous! I've haven't tried this brand before but will have to pick up a few of these.

  9. Never heard of this brand. So gonna look into getting a few

  10. Wisdom looks so good on you!

  11. Honesty....I'm the person who tells it like it is. Some people see my honesty as bitchiness,but I feel it's better to tell truth than to hurt someone with lies

  12. Love wisdom, well purple everything...💜 But for grandfather teachings Humility hits the live with humility is to recognize that we are all equal,we all make mistakes.😍

  13. I most identify with wisdom because I believe it's important to learn from your past mistakes. Also, purple is my favorite color, which is a nice bonus!
