New Brand on the Block
Every nail/nail polish enthusiast loves a fab new brand to hit their Instagram screens, and I for one am super giddy to see more from the stylish new indie brand YAB. A little while ago they released a stunning 'pre-launch' collection that consisted of such pretty pastel polishes. I was unfortunately not quick enough to get my hands on all colours, but I did manage to grab the pastel yellow and blue. YAB's yellow polish is one of the only yellow polishes that seems to agree with my skin tone, and the formula was perfection, which is something I always struggle with in yellows. They both dried to a super glossy finish with no streaking or patchiness, and the bottles/labels just look so trendy.
YAB have just launched another fabulous collection that is perfect for the Autumn and Winter months, consisting of a golden nude, a shimmering green, a bang-on-trend mustard and a few others too! They very kindly sent me two polishes from this collection to try out and review.
BOTH OF THESE POLISHES WERE GIFTED TO ME BY YAB, OPINIONS AND SWATCHES ARE MY OWN.
This is such a beautiful nude polish, but I do feel like my pasty pale skin doesn't do it much justice... It has an incredibly smooth formula that is very easy to apply and self-levelling. It dries to a high shine finish, though I top all polishes with Seche Vite for even more gloss haha! It has the most subtle gold flecks within its mix, that just adds a little something special to the finish. It is a polish that can be worn everyday, at work, out and about, or on a night out. Demure is literally one of those polishes that will perfectly finish off any outfit, at any time of the year.
This is my favourite of the two. It has so much to offer! I've worn this over both a nude base, and a dark base, and had two very different effects. It's like two polishes for the price of one, and in the same bottle! Over a nude base you can really see the flecks of magenta/hot-pink flash against a silvery lavender shimmer, and over a dark base you almost see a colour shift from pink/purple/yellow/green! It is so incredibly unique and that is why I love it.
This one would be perfect for a night out, the light really catches all those beautiful shimmers and glitters. Even though there are assorted sizes and shapes of glitters in here, Majestic still dries to a fairly smooth finish, so if you don't have time for a topcoat - no problem haha!
All polishes by YAB are 5-free, cruelty free, vegan friendly and handmade here in the UK. At the moment their new website is being worked on, but you can still get your hands on their brand new polishes HERE on Etsy. They are definitely on my list of recommended products/brands, I'd love to know if you've tried any of their polishes! Drop me a comment below!
