SV by Sparkly Vernis: Winter 2014 Polishes

Before Christmas I received an email asking me to review a couple of polishes.
I was half asleep and thought 'oh no! they've emailed the wrong person. They'll never send polish out to NZ!'
But despite my sleepy state, I managed to reply with my address and just before Christmas this amazing parcel arrived on my door step.

These polishes were sent for review from SV by Sparkly Vernis and I have to say I'm incredibly impressed.

Sparkly Vernis has been around for awhile and I love reading her blog. If you want to check out absolutely gorgeous swatches and see the latest for the polishes definitely check out the blog Sparkly Vernis.

Anyway...on to why I'm so impressed.

The packaging.

Living in New Zealand, I've suffered nail polish causalities. They have a long way come and aren't always treated with the care they need on their journey. These babies were packed so snugly, nothing could happen to them. 

Excellent packaging

Two cute little baggies. 
More packaging protection!
Now on to what I'm sure you all want to see...the polishes!

The polishes.

I was lucky enough to be sent two polishes from the Winter 2014 collection, a sugary assortment of holos. Just look at that holo!

Cotton Candy Sugar and Periwinkle Sprinkles

Periwinkle Sprinkles is a gorgeous periwinkle blue holo. I used three coats. The formula was easy to work with and I could have used two coats happily...but three is habit! The holo is stunning and vibrant in the sun. I love these shades of blue. Blue is my go to polish and this one will be gracing my tips frequently over the summer.

Periwinkle Sprinkles
Cotton Candy Sugar is actually the one I reached for first. I've actually worn it twice since I received it. Normally I'd pick the blue any day...but there's just something about Cotton Candy Sugar that called to me. Maybe it's the lilac undertones. Cotton Candy Sugar is such a sweet pretty polish. Again I used three coats here and the holo was gorgeous in the sun.

Cotton Candy Sugar
SV by Sparkly Vernis pays high attention to detail. This is evident in everything from the website, to the packaging, to the gorgeous polishes and the swatch photos available for each product.

I'm drooling over several more polishes from SV by Sparkly Vernis. Mint Frosting and Snowflakies are calling my name!
