Maisie Shine Swatches & Review

November 27, 2012

Today I'm going to show you some swatches of Maisie Shine polishes.
Lindsey from Maisie Shine was generous enough to send me these two beautiful polishes for review and I'm happy to share it with you.

Maisie Shine offers you a variety of gorgeous glitter polishes at her Etsy store.
Maisie Shine's nail polishes are three free: NO dibutyl phthalate (DBP), NO toluene and NO formaldehyde. She also offers worldwide shipping so wherever you are, you can get these beauties for yourself or for your polish buddies.

First is Wonderland, a gorgeous glitter polish with clear base. It contains blue periwinkle sparkle in addition to iridescent and white glitters. I layered it over Essence Sure Azure which is a frosty light blue. This combination created a gorgeous wintery look which I just adore!
I only needed one coat of this fabulous Wonderland polish to achieve this look. The glitters are very dense but I still needed to "fish" for the big white glitters. Application was easy and nice, and it wasn't bumpy as most glitter polishes are, but still I applied one coat of Seche Vite to give it extra shine.
I really loved this polish and it became one of my favorite glitter polishes in my collection.

Nice was the second polish I received for review. It's a gorgeous green with green glitters and a teal flash. You can't actually see this in the photos but the glitters have holo sparkle in the light and it's just so fun to look at. This green in a perfect shade for Christmas and even though I'm not a huge fan of greens, this color is actually pretty and refreshing.
Application wise it was a bit difficult for me to spread it evenly because the polish itself  was quite thick and with the glitters it was even thicker so the second coat was a bit tricky. I think I would prefer this one a bit more sheer so I can apply this over a similar color or see how it will look over black base. I think that way the glitters can show more and they can get that sparkly effect in the light instead of being covered by the polish. To top this all I applied one coat of Seche Vite.
Overall I like this polish and the color is great for the holidays. I can definitely can see myself use it to create a Christmas themed mani with some white or silver stamping.
