Completing the 31 Day challenge has meant I've fallen a long way behind in all my swatch reviews. I have more than a dozen posts lined up of polishes to show you. The another thing I've realised doing the nail nail challenge is how much I loved doing nail art (not to mention how much you guys liked it too). As such, I'm making a commitment to do at least one too two nail art designs every week, in additional to regular swatches.
This first post back brings you a ten polish collection from Aussie indie brand - Celestial Cosmetics. The collection is called The Seven Kingdoms Collection and it's based on the Game Of Thrones TV series. It is a collaboration collection between Celestial Cosmetics and Color4Nails.
The collection contains six thermal colour changing polishes and four chameleon duochromes. Let's get straight into the polishes.
Arya Stark - This is a pale pink thermal polish that is pink when it's warm and shifts to light purple when cold. It also has a pretty holographic shimmer. These photos are three coats in the sun, with the last photo taken after my fingers were plunged into our cold pool.
Highgarden - Another thermal polish that is a lime yellow colour when warm and green when cold. It also contains silver micro glitter. Clearly my fingers were doing strange things here, cause I had two warm fingers and two cold fingers. Does that ever happen to anyone else when wearing thermal polishes? I love it cause it creates such an interesting effect. This is three coats with Seche Vite Top coat. This is my favourite one of the thermals in the collection.
A Lannister Always Pays His Debt - A yellow jelly polish with a holographic shimmer that changes to orange when it's cold. This was three coats with Seche Vite top coat, and because of the jelly finish it is a little sheer, although it certainly isn't streaky or patchy.
Little Finger - A purple to blue thermal polish with a holographic shimmer. The polish is blue when warm and purple when cold. The temperature shift in this one is really obvious and I love a blue and purple combination. The is three coats with Seche Vite top coat.
House Arryn - This polish is a blue to purple thermal polish with silver holographic micro glitter. This one is a really sheer jelly and I should have layered it over another polish so you could see my stained ring finger nail, but after three coats I wasn't taking it off and starting again. The colour shift is more subtle in this one, but you can see the purple more so on my index finger.
Iron Born - a purple to charcoal holographic polish.The warm colour is purple toned and the cold colour is a silvery charcoal. The holo effect is good and the two colours compliment each other really well. This it three coats with Seche Vite top coat.
King Slayer - a dark base with a blue to purple to red duochrome. Beautifully opaque in just two coats, I love that this duochrome doesn't need undies.
Mother of Dragons - a red base with a pink shimmer that shifts to orange and gold. Another beautiful duochrome that is opaque in two coats.
Jaqen H'ghar - a lighter blue base with a mauve shimmer that shifts to orange and gold. Am I repeating myself if I say this was perfectly opaque in two coats? Another lovely and smooth duochrome.
Sapphires of Tarth - a shiny cyan base that shifts to dark purple. Opaque in two coats. Another beauty. I love that these duo chromes aren't streaky either.
