Grace-full Nail Polish What A Girl Needs Collection - Swatches & Review

Sunday, 30 August 2015


Earlier this week I shared with you Grace-full Nail Polish's Happily Ever After Collection (you can see this post here if you missed it) and I mentioned that there was a lot of goodies being released as part of Grace-full's first birthday celebrations.  Well today I bring to you the What A Girl Needs collection.  This is the second collection being released on September 1st along with cuticle oils, mani bombs, nail vinyls and jewellery.  This collection is inspired by images on a storyboard created by Grace-full Nail Polish customers of their dream polish and consists of six polishes.


Blue S-Teal is the big sister to Do The Magic! (you can see my swatch of this polish here) and has the same finish with color shift but this one moves through blue, steel blue and teal.  Beautiful polish, but really hard to photograph.  You can see the purple shift in person in some lights but my camera just won't capture it.  Formula is great and only needed two coats to be opaque.

Butter-ful is a white base with two sizes of gold flakes that turn the white into a creamy colour.  The formula is easy to work with, although I did find that it applied slightly uneven on me.  I needed three coats to even it out.

Elementeal is a teal jelly base with teal and copper super holographic mircoglitter.  This polish is super sparkly (why don't cameras just capture everything exactly like the eyes can see?)  The formula is slightly thick but it is still easy enough to work with.  I used two coats for my swatch.

Pinktopia is described as a deep pink with sparkle and UCC chrome chameleon flakies.  Great formula and only requires two coats to be opaque.

Rain Upon The Moon is the baby sister to White Rider (you can see my swatches of this polish here, which also happens to be my first review post that I have ever written) and has the same super sparkle just with smaller silver super holographic glitter, a silver tinted holo base and rainbox flakies throughout.  Talk about bling!  Totally in love with this one.  Definite must have in my opinion.  Again, pictures just don't show the true sparkle of this baby.  The formula is fantastic and only needs two coats to be opaque.

Royal Forest Nymph is a deep jewel green linear holo that has a slight shift to gold.  The formula is great and only requires two coats to be opaque.

I love that Grace-full have made a darker collection to be released along side a lighter collection like Happily Ever After.  There is definitely something for everyone in these releases.  My personal favorites from this collection are Rain Upon The Moon, Blue S-Steal and Elementeal.

The What A Girl Needs Collection is being released on September 1st at 7pm and can be purchased from the Grace-full Nail Polish site.

As mentioned earlier in this post, there is a bunch of new and exciting things being released in September.  Make sure you are following Grace-full's Facebook Group for more information and pictures.
