Today I have some swatches of a new to me indie brand to share with you. Beyond the Nail is a Canadian indie brand that sells quite a variety of nail polish, vinyl decals, caviar microbeads as well as some fake nail sets! That's quite a lot for a new brand! Today I have 2 of their beautiful polishes to share with you, let's jump right in!
Beyond The Nail Blue Microglitter is just that! Awesome blue microglitter. I found the formula to be a little on the thin side so I used 4 coats for the coverage you see here. You can probably get away with 3, but I wanted a little more depth in the polish. This would also be great for layering as you would get a speckled look over another colour.
This glitter is designed to dry to a gritty finish, similar to the Holiday Joy China Glaze glitters that came out last November. However I preferred it nice and shiny so I did 2 coats of NYC In a Minute top coat. We all know how much I love blues and this is beautiful. It is unique in my collection and I'm really happy I now own it!
Beyond The Nail Shimmering Mermaid is just awesome. This clear based glitter mix is full of blue microglitter, small blue hex glitter and medium silver holographic glitter. I couldn't get the holographic glitter to shine as much as it does in real life, so take my word for it that the holographic goodness of Shimmering Mermaid is really shimmering ;)
This was 2 coats of Shimmering Mermaid over Pure Ice Bikini. I am completely in love with this polish and think it will look flattering on anyone.
Beyond the Nail is a great new brand that I am really impressed with. I didn't picture their bottles, but they are the same as Cult Nails, and I love that rounded look.
You can purchase both of these here at Beyond The Nail's esty shop for $9.00 for a full sized bottle. Also show them some Facebook love here! Since they are new they still have under 100 likes :O
What are your thoughts on these polishes? Will you be checking out Beyond The Nail?
