Pixie Polish – Memory Splice

Good morning!

I’ve not posted much recently because I’ve been preparing some gems for you 🙂 I’ll start a new giveaway tomorrow, and Julie has been kind enough to let me piggyback onto her April Challenge ! Plus, I have a whole collection from Northern Star to show you, a Liebster Award to accept & pass on (has it been 10 days since that happened already?!) aaaand a few other indie swatches coming up… April is gonna be busy, busy busy !

First of all I’d like to show you a Pixie Polish from the Muses Alchemy on Etsy.

This polish is called Memory Splice, I ordered it with a holographic top coat that I’ll show you a bit later (it deserves perfect photos !). Pixie also surprised me with a beautiful nail polish ring – I am definitely going to be ordering some more, I love having jewellery that matches my manis !

A bit of serious stuff here (this is already in Pixie’s profile), Pixie suffers from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, and 25% of Pixie Polish proceeds go to JDRF, Juvenile Diabetes Research Association and other causes  – so you can feel good about buying them ! The bottles are recycled (after being autoclaved), and you can get some really unique combinations from this shop, because Pixie studied light sceince, technology, cosmetic chemistry, minerals and pigments… Pretty high brow !

I think I’ve made you wait long enough for the photos, so let’s get down to business. Memory Splice is seriously holographic, here’s what it looks like in the bottle under natural and incandescent light :

Darling Diva Swatches – Magnifique and Blonde Tornado

I must say that so far, no indie polish brand that I have tried has disappointed ! Darling Diva was one of the first that I decided to try, and I’m ashamed to admit, I have ordered a second time! I ordered 3 polishes, and Carrie was so kind, she added an exclusive for me to share with you !

I have two for you now, and I’ll let you hang on for the other two another time (though you probably won’t be waiting long!)

Darling Diva Swatches – Channeling Coco, Persephone & Space Beetle

As if I needed to get hooked on another brand, I’ve found that I actually can get indie polishes delivered ! (apparently it’s a different postman, one that actually does his job!). So I’ve got a few indie swatching sessions coming up for you ! Now, I make a point of letting all sellers of indie polish know that I’m intending to review them, so they can opt out if they so wish. As these brands are so new, and so personal, I don’t want to step on any toes ! I love polish, and I consider investing in these to be just like any other sale. So I usually wait until I have received the order before saying I’d like to share on my blog. No pressure ! So far, no-one has said that they would rather not be reviewed. So that’s good news for you guys 🙂

Darling Diva was the first one that got delivered. Dispatch was extremely speedy, and Carrie’s kind enough to not just let me, but encourage me to share these with you!

So here we go …
