Brazilian Indie brand #2 - Penelope Luz

I'm tired tonight.  On Monday next week I've got a presentation at work to some executives from another division, and today I did a run through with our executive, so the prep for those meetings, mixed with late nights painting nails has me felling a bit flat. But I'm on such a roll with posting every single day, that I just don't want to break the streak on my blog. I think I've had some sort of post done every day now for a just over a year! Holy shit, that's a lot of work.

Anyway, moving on, I've got some more polishes from another Brazilian indie brand for you today.  These polishes are from Penelope Luz, a brand I've seen on my favourite Brazilian blog to read look at pictures on, cause I can't read Portuguese - Esmaltes da Kelly. 

Ahimsa -a combination of orange bars, hexes and fine glitters, together with matte purple squares and hearts. This is two coats over Kester Black Poppy.  In hindsight, I wished I layered this over a lighter colour because Poppy was too good a match to the purple glitters.

Bastet - a chocolate brown base with mainly brown glitters, and a few other multicoloured bright glitters. I love this jelly brown base.  In the sun it was glowy and warm, perfect for our freezing winter weather.

Bellatrix - a near black purple jelly base with multi coloured fine glitter.  So pretty in real life, and so hard to capture in photos.  This is three coats on its own.

Belly Dance - a mix of multicoloured glitters, with a predominance of gold.  Two coats layered over black. While this is another multi coloured glitter mix, it has a totally different look and feel to all other ones in my collection.  The name of the polish - belly dance - really does conjurer up images of belly dancing costumes with gold bling. I like this one a lot.

I've been enjoying sampling these Brazilian indie polish that I got from Color4Nails, although I do notice the smell of the polishes is different to the other indie brands I have.  It's not an unpleasant smell, it's just different.

Penelope Luz polishes are available from Color4Nails, who stock a large range of commercial and indie brands and ship worldwide.
