Grace-full Nail Polish Ice Princess Collection - Swatches & Review

Wednesday, 24 June 2015


Happy Wednesday everyone!  Hope the week has been treating you well.  I can't complain too much.  I have had a pretty uneventful week, except the whole having to shorten and round my nails thing.  Hopefully they will grow and be back to my regular squares.  Anyway, today I am excited to share with you Grace-full Nail Polish's Ice Princess collection.  This collection is inspired by Disney's Frozen and has a total of ten polishes plus a bonus polish for all orders with four or more polishes from this collection.  Now word of warning, these is a lot of pics in this post so I will try and keep the chatter to a minimum.

Beautifuler is described as a deep pink jelly with ultra fine pink holographic glitter and iridescent violet glitter.  The formula is super easy to work with.  You can get away with using two coats, however there is still a slight visible nail line.  I used three coats for my swatch and I am absolutely in love with the depth the third coat gives.

Break The Frozen Ice is described as a glacial blue holographic that shifts to turquoise green.  Great formula.  I used two coats for my swatch.

Do The Magic! is a deep blue shimmer that shifts to violet.  This polish is amazing.  Pictures just really don't do it justice.  The colour shift is much more obvious in person.  The formula is also really easy to work with.  I used two coats for my swatch.

Ice Crazy is a light grey crelly with a hint of blue throughout, ultra fine silver holographic glitter, iridescent tiny glitters and little flecks of mauve and blue.  This polish is extremely camera shy.  It's actually really stunning in person.  The formula is great and easy to use.  I used two coats for my swatch.

Little Baby Unicorn is described as a mauve super holographic micro glitter with violet holo microglitter in a crelly base.  Easy to use and super sparkly.  I used two coats for my swatch.

My Own Personal Snow Flurry is a white crelly with black, orange, silver and blue microglitter with silver ultra fine holographic glitter, iridescent glitter and silver holo hexes.  Formula is easy to work with and is fully opaque in two coats.

Open Door is described as a mauve holo with violet flakies.  Formula is easy to use.  You can get away with two coats  if you don't mind a slight visible nail line in some lights.  I used three coats for my swatch.

Queen Arendelle is described as a turquoise green crelly with shifting colour from gold to blue to green flecks.  Super pretty, easy to use and builds up perfectly in two coats.

Strike For Love is described as an aqua holo with blue flakies throughout.  Easy to use and only requires two coats to be opaque.  Now this is actually more holo than it appears in my photos, but I was battling with clouds covering the sun.

The Sky Is Awake is described as a turquoise green and sea green holographic microglitter in a jelly base.  It does appear quite sheer on the nail on the first coat but builds by nicely on the second.

And now the bonus polish - Magical Snowflakes.  This polish has a translucent base and is full of iridescent glitter and white snowflakes.  I had trouble getting the snowflakes out of my bottle, but Theresa has increased the amount of snowflakes that are in the polish AND is also sending out little extra snowflakes as an added bonus.  The polish is quite pretty without the snowflakes and you get the added bonus of snowflakes for some nail art.  And who doesn't love nail art?  I used one coat over black for my swatch.

Wow!  Huge post.  What do you think of this collection?  I really like it.  My personal favourites are Do The Magic! (if you can only get one polish I would say this is the one to get), Queen Arendelle, Ice Crazy and Beautifuler.  

This collection is being released on Friday at 7pm and will be available from Grace-full Nail Polish.  Don't forget, if you purchase four or more polishes from this collection you will receive Magical Snowflakes and extra snowflakes!
