Hello ladies! Aussie indie brand Celestial Cosmetics will be turning four this month and to celebrate Nicki (founder and mastermind) has created a fun and sassy collection, and one limited edition. The Good Girls and Bad Habits Collection consists of nine linear holographic polishes, and one color shifting flakie holo for the limited edition. For all you holo lovers, get your grabby hands ready!
The formulas were all consistently great as I have come to expect from the brand. Each one applied smoothly and built up perfectly in two coats (one of them I did a third anyway). The only issue I had was with staining on some of them, which I mention below. Celestial Cosmetics polishes are all 5-free (meaning no Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP, Formaldehyde Resin, Camphor). The bottles contain 12ml.
Sarcasm & Wine, Then Everything's Fine is a deep wine red/purple linear holographic. WOW. Just wow. Shown is two coats, no top coat.
Too Glam To Give A Damn is a coral linear holographic. Shown is two coats, no top coat.
You're Poison & I'm Addicted is a deep grape linear holographic. Shown is two coats, no top coat.
Your Approval Is Not Needed is a coffee brown linear holo. Shown is two coats, no top coat.
4th Birthday Limited Edition
There's A Party In My Polish & You're Invited is a teal based linear holo with pink/purple color shifting flakies. This was really hard to capture as it is so complex Shown is two coats, plus top coat. Freckles In Suburbia took some great photos of this one in the shade, check out her review here.
The release date is set for 5:30pm EST April 7 (April 8th at 8am ACDT) for both US and Australian website. Each polish retails for $11 usd/$12 aud, and will be discounted by 10% for the first 48 hours only.
If you follow this blog you know what a fan I am of good names and this collection amused me so much. Oh and the polishes themselves are pretty fabulous too! My faves are Sarcasm & Wine, Then Everything's Fine, Resting Bitch Face (Stops Wrinkles), and There's A Party In My Polish & You're invited. What's you favorite? Let me know in the comments!
