Windestine- Part One

 Happy Hump Day! Today I have a couple of polishes from Windestine. Erin and I both have a love affair with Jeweled Sand so we already know that Windestine does sparkly toppers well but today I have some gorgeous shimmers for you. Senescence is a darker kelly green polish with a copper shimmer and a hint of holo. This polish is a serious stunner. I never expected the copper and holo sparkle I saw in the bottle to translate to the nail but WOW. I couldn't stop staring. I used two coats of Senescence with one coat of HK Girl topcoat for the swatched below.




Look at at that sparkle!

This is Inner Glow, a tan creme polish with a hint of holo. Inner Glow definitely has more than a hint of holo going on. I used two coats of Inner Glow with one coat of HK Girl topcoat for these swatches.





See? Gorgeous holo
Pros- I was super impressed with the self-leveling, smooth, even formula of these polishes. And the subtle holo shimmer is pretty much amazing.
Cons- I thought Inner Glow was going to be a perfect nude holo for me. How wrong I was! I'm a super pale girl with yellow undertones and Inner Glow leaned way too yellow on me. I compared my nails to a coworker with caramel skin and it was HIS perfect nude holo. Unfortunately, I could not get him to swatch it for me for a comparison shot ;) It didn't look yellow toned at all next to his skin.
Overall- I love a shimmer that shows as much on the nail as it does in the bottle. I have one very important question though, how do you say Windestine??


You can purchase Windestine on etsy and Big Cartel. Keep up with new collections by liking them on Facebook and following on Twitter. Stay tuned for Part 2!
