Prism Polish Spring/Easter Collection
**contains PR products**
I am super giddy to be trying out the exciting new collection by UK indie brand Prism Polish. I'm lucky enough to have collaborated with them before, click HERE to see, so to experience the new Spring/Easter collection is a huge treat for me!
Prism Polish is a 5-free, cruelty free, vegan friendly brand that whip up some of the most gorgeous polishes and donate a percentage of profits (from the chosen charity polish) to charities. Pop over to their website to check out February's chosen polish and cause.
So without further a do, let's take a closer look at the upcoming collection...
I can honestly say this is one of the most beautiful polishes I've ever come across, from both Indies and mainstream. I love the whole collection, but this and one other really stood out to me.
Dusty Bluebells is a dreamy soft, pale, pastel blue with delicate little bursts of red and gold sparkles. I found it to be self-levelling and full cover in 3 coats. You could easily get away with two coats but I could still see my cheeky white tips in certain lighting and decided to add an extra coat.
It dries down to a smooth and glossy finish, but I find that popping on a topcoat always helps to highlight any glitters within.
This will be the chosen Charity Polish for March, meaning that every bottle sold will see £1 donated to the Woodland Trust, which I believe is a wonderful cause to support.
All of these polishes (except the pure glitter one - duh!) have a lovely creamy formula that are so easy to work with. This particular one is a pretty pastel lilac with pops of blue/purple glitters.
I found Heathland Mist to be completely full cover with just two coats, again drying down to a high gloss and smooth finish.
This whole collection is going to be so perfect for spring and Easter, I love it when brands start releasing their pastel shades, it's a sign of better weather being on it's way - finally!
Here is my other favourite polish of the bunch, isn't it stunning?! I know you all get how much I love pink everything by now, but isn't this just the most pretty, delicate, shimmery and soft pastel pink ever? I love, love, love those blue/purple flakies peeking through, truly giving me Cadbury's mini egg feels! In fact it's a must that I try this with a matte topcoat at some point.
Wood Anenome was full cover in 3 coats, and the flakies scattered themselves randomly with no extra effort from me upon application.
Here is another polish that I must try with a matte topper for instant Cadbury's mini egg effect! I really like this soft pastel, minty green colour, and those green/purple colour shifting flakies are perfection.
I found Speckled Egg to be full cover in two coats, drying down to that same beautiful high gloss, smooth finish.
Does anybody else feel like glitter polishes are the devil in disguise? They are so beautiful, so sparkly, so twinkly ... but man are they hard to work with! I am the first to admit that I don't tend to gravitate towards pure glitter polishes, because as much as I love the finished look, I'm totally lazy and not a fan of the application.
I found that the best way to apply Sun Glitter alone was by using the 'sponging on' method, which I use for any pure glitter polish from any brand, to really build up those layers and completely cover the natural nail beneath. It took about 3-4 coats using this technique and surprisingly only one coat of Seche to seal it in, I say surprisingly because glitters are usually really thirsty and can drink up your first layer of topcoat but this one didn't seem to, great stuff!
I know that Sun Glitter is going to be the most perfect addition to any glitter loving mermaid's collection, and how gorgeous is this going to look on the toes this spring/summer?!
Prism Polish is the place to be this Spring/Easter, a must have collection indeed! These 5 beauties will be live on the website come March 1st, and make sure you keep a close eye on their Instagram and Facebook pages for more swatches, prices etc..
