NEW UK Indies - Freckles Polish!

*These products were provided at a discount for review purposes*

Greetings All!

Today I have swatches of a brand new UK indie polish. So new in fact, they haven't even been officially released yet! The launch date is March 28th, although you can preorder them here right now! So far there are two collections available, and I have a polish from each collection to show you.

First up is Let's Go Fly A Kite, from the Sprung collection. I used three coats here.

This is a lovely, fresh bright blue (my favourite kind of blue!) with blue, silver and lime green glitter. I especially like the lime green with the blue, it's very lush and Summery looking. Application was really good - I only just needed three coats to cover up a couple of patches, two coats would probably do in the majority of cases. 

Next up is a glitter topper from the Bridget Jones collection. I've seen a bit of Bridget Jones, but I couldn't cope with the whole film (I'm not a fan of chick flicks, or Renee Zellweger). However that doesn't mean I can't enjoy the polish! This one is called Tits Pervert, which I did have to Google, so that's now in my search history! I tried it over both a light and dark colour. First is one coat over Sally Hansen Jaded, because I love pale green and lilac together.

Plenty of glitter in this one! I was prepared to fish for the holo circles, but it wasn't at all necessary. They were jumping on the brush! The dark glitter I initially thought was a mix of blue and black, but they're actually very dark blue glitters that flash a beautiful sapphire blue. I've been seeing a lot of black glitter lately, so this is a refreshing change. I also like the variety of sizes, from teeny squares to large hexes.

With all the blue in mind, I also decided to wear it over blue. This is again one coat, over OPI Dating A Royal.

Again, I was really happy with the amount of glitter I got in one coat. I think it suits the darker colours best - part of me would be very interested to see what it looks like over black, because although you would lose a lot of the glitter, you would get these wonderful sparks of blue shining through. The large circles did mean this polish needed plenty of topcoat, but that's pretty standard for large circles. It's a price I'm happy to pay!

I was very happy with both these polishes - I still find myself 'lowering the bar' a little for new indie brands because I assume there is a learning curve (there's no way I could do it!), but really I shouldn't because there is no need to. These are both lovely polishes, and there are several more I will be ordering, especially from the Sprung collection, which is full of pretty Spring colours!

You can preorder Freckles Polish here, and they officially launch on March 28th. You can keep up to date with news and swatches on FacebookTwitter and Instagram.
