Bewitching Looks Launch
**contains PR products**
Today I have another new indie brand to share with you, only this time, with a really fun twist that really separates it from the rest of the market. Bewitching Looks has been created by the lovely Louise, and her work is centred around mystical and magic themes. Each polish will come with its own birthdate, star sign, name meaning, and numerological path. Also, every collection will have had its own Astro fable reading! It is definitely worth checking out the website, it's so very interesting...
Polishes are 10-free and cruelty free, packaging is recycled and/or made from recycled materials where possible, and there is a scheme in the works for you to return empty bottles for a discount code.
Now that we know a little behind the brand, lets take a look at the collection set to launch (provisionally) on the 1st July.
Tir Na nOg collection
I'm going to share with you the story behind the collection which was provided to me by Louise...
In Irish folklore Tir Na nOg is the 'Land on the Young', and is also known as the Otherworld, or at the very least a part of it. The Otherworld has different names throughout the world and is home to all manner of mystical beings. Tir NanOg is the home of Tuatha De Dannan, the people of the Goddess Dana.
Many tales have been told of Tir Na nOg and Tuatha, the most famous being that of Oisin and Naimh, the skilled Kings Guard who falls in love and is taken to a magical land with no war or illness and where time moves slowly. In some tales Naimh and the other Tuatha are mortals living in a magical land, in others they are Gods and Goddesses. Over time they have evolved into Aos Is, people of the mounds who are better known today as faeries.
The Tir Na nOg Collection brings to you some of the mystery of this faerie world. Our ladies are designed to bring wonder and peace to you and your life, wear them when you need a little serenity or sparkle.
Numerology: life path 9
These ladies have great compassion and idealism. They have a broad outlook on life seeing the bigger picture, rather than the minute details. They naturally attract people from all walks of life and are rarely prejudiced choosing to evaluate people on the basis of what they can do for the larger cause. They are imaginative and creative and always bring beauty to their surroundings.
Ellette is a beautiful, soft creamy lilac that is full cover in two coats. It dries to a glossy finish, though I did add a topcoat as always!
Here are the details/story behind Ellette...
Ellette is a smooth pale lilac polish made just for the little elf of the Faerie World. Ellette is a cheeky Faerie and can be found dancing around the spring flowers dressed in purples and pinks. She is friendly, inquisitive and always on the look out for the next person to spend time with.

Ellette Numerology: As a 7 Ellette will enhance your determination and success with a capacity for hard work that is amazing. When you wear Ellette you are showing the world you are very independent, intelligent, friendly, cheerful, skillful with money, perceptive and chatty.
It was so hard to fully capture the pure beauty of this polish on camera, but you can see from the photo that it is a pretty dusky pink, almost peachy colour with golden flakes bursting through! I used three coats to build up to Raisa's fullest opacity, and it dries to a shiny finish though again, I'm wearing a topcoat.
Here are the details/story behind Raisa...
Raisa is a dusky pink jelly polish with gorgeous gold flakes and was made just for the rose amongst the thorns. Raisa is a reserved Faerie who likes to work away alone until it is her time to shine. She is by no means shy, instead she enjoys spending time working on her talents so she can always give her best performance, charming all around her with ease.

This is a stunning, vibrant jelly blue with so much holo goodness running through it! It was full cover with just two coats, which for a glitter polish is incredible.
Here are the details/story behind Sebille...
Sebille is a rich blue polish with scattered holo inspired by the mythical faerie from Arthurian legends. Sebille is a powerful enchantress and known by some to be Queen of the Faerie world.

This one was fully opaque in two coats, and I noticed that it dries to a semi-matte finish. It is a beautiful multi chrome that looks incredible under any light! I decided to share two swatches, one with the matte finish, and one with a glossy finish.
Here are the details/story behind Eolande...
Eolande is a shimmering blue-purple-pink multichromatic polish made for the most spiritual of Faeries. Eolande likes to spend her time in contemplation, thinking about answers to all the big questions before sharing her knowledge with those around her. She is at her happiest when she can follow through on her dreams by drawing in the people she cares about and setting them on what she believes is the right path.
