Grace-full Nail Polish Wizards And Magic Collection - Swatches & Review

Friday, 22 February 2019


Grace-full Nail Polish are back with a brand new collection (and their first for 2019) and I am so excited to share it with you.  The Wizards And Magic Collection is inspired by Harry Potter and has eleven polishes - one thermal, three holos, two metallic flake foils, two multichromes, a magnetic and a shimmer with aurora pigment.  This collection definitely has something for everyone in it!  As usual, this post is quite picture heavy, but sometimes you just need the extra pictures so show the pretties.


Chosen One is a maroon linear holo with UCC flakes and aurora shimmer that gives a depth to the holo.  This polish is inspired by Harry Potter.  I think that this is such a beautiful colour and the formula is awesome!  My swatch shows two coats.

Dragon Keeper is a multichrome that moves through red, bronze and copper and is inspired by Hagrid.  This one has a good colour shift to it.  I found that the first coat of this one was a little thin/sheer but it does build up on the second coat.  I used three coats for my swatch, however you could stop at two coats.  It was just a little see through at the tips for my liking.

Everybody Loves Luna is a thermal that is a muted purple in its coldest state, pinky purple when transitions and peach when it is at it's warmest.  It is filled with golden shimmer that really pops especially when it is in it's warmest state.  This polish is inspired by Luna.  Funny story about this one.  When I first saw it it was coral and I remember thinking how stunning it was.  But when I went to swatch it I couldn't find it.  Clearly didn't realise it was a thermal at the time.  Anyway, this polish transitions between the shades really well and is gorgeous in all states.  The formula is great and easy to use.  I did question if I could stop at the second coat, however it did have a questionable visible nail line when warm (or my eyes were playing tricks on me).  My swatch shows three coats.

Ginger Ninja is a metallic flake foil that is full of copper metallic flakes and a smattering of silver flakes for extra shine and sparkle.  This polish really does shine!  I love the colour and the formula is so easy to work with.  You do need to be careful with application because clean up can be quite messy.  This polish would make for a great base for nail art or as an accent nail as well.  I'm definitely going to have a lot of fun using this one.  My swatch shows two coats.

Griffindor's First Lady is a magnet with a forest green base, colourful UCC flakes and light green and gold magnetic pieces.  This polish is inspired by Professor McGonagall.  This is such a nice polish.  The formula does seem a little thing on the first coat, however it does build up nicely on the second coat.  You can stop at two coats, however I used three coats for my swatch.

Keeper Of The Diary is a mint green creme holo with a flash of pink and has gold flakes scattered throughout.  This polish is inspired by Ginny and her Yuletide ball gown.  This polish is gorgeous, especially with that flash of pink!  The formula is great and applies evenly.  I used two coats for my swatch.

Little Miss Perfect is a multichrome that moves through pink, red and copper.  This polish is inspired by Hermoine and her Yuletide ball dress.  This one is gorgeous and shifts between the shades well.  It is really hard to capture the colours in pictures but you can see them in person.  For my swatch I used two coats.

O Dumbledore, My Dumbledore has a purple based with green-blue aurora shimmer and of course is inspired by Dumbledore.  This polish is magically!  On the first coat (which is a little patchy) it looks purple, but on the second coat is changes to blue.  It's so crazy, but oh so gorgeous!  I love it!  This polish is opaque in two coats.

Sev is a light teal crelly with UCC flakes in purple, purple, teal and navy.  This polish is inspired by Severus Snape's heroic softer side.  I love the colours in this polish.  I think they look so good together.  The formula is easy to use and applies evenly.  I used three coats for my swatch, however you can stop at two coats.

Stan's Wheels is a vibrant purple holo with a pink flash.  I love this one!  The colour is absolutely stunning and the formula is amazing.  My swatch shows two coats.

Unicorn Claret is a metallic foil with silver flakies and a smattering of holo flakes throughout.  This one is gorgeous and sooooo sparkly!  I love it!  Like with Ginger Ninja this polish is great to wear alone, with nail art or as an accent nail.  The formula is great and easy to use.  I do recommend a careful application as this polish can be quite messy to clean up.  My swatch shows two coats.

How great is the Wizards And Magic Collection?  There are sooooo many great polishes in the mix here.  My personal favourites are Unicorn Claret, Ginger Ninja, Stan's Wheels and O Dumbledore, My Dumbledore.  There are so many others in this collection that are soooooo close to being favourites of mine but I am being tough and limiting my favourites.  You honestly can't go wrong with any of the polishes in this collection.  They are all beautiful and have great formulas.

The Wizards And Magic Collection will be available from Grace-full Nail Polish on Sunday 24th February at 8pm AEDT from both the Australian site and the international site.
