I can't review my own polishes for you so I asked one of my gorgeous swatchers to do a write up for you all. No money or polish (lol) other than what was provided for review was exchanged for this review and as the lovely Tracy is only on Instagram she didn't have a blog to place it on. It gives you an insight into how the polishes performed and how they applied. I can promise that I worked hard to have the formula on all the polishes just how I would like it if I had purchased them. It takes 3 coats on some jellies to become opaque but I wanted the glitter to shine through easily so a slow build up of colour worked best for that. Consider this a testimonial and more reviews will start appearing on other blogs soon.
Hi guys, I’m Tracy (or @oliviajade19 over Instagram). I was lucky enough to be asked by Theresa to not only test out her some of her polishes for Grace-full Nail Polish, but to also swatch some for her as well. And *spoiler alert* OMG they are all amazing! I have fallen in love with them all so much that I went and purchased the remaining polishes for my collection.
First up from the Fellowship Collection is Gandalf’s Fireworks.
Now this is probably my favourite that I own from this collection. I used three coats for my swatch, and each coat applied so easily. It applied evenly and was jam packed full of glittery goodness. It’s so sparkly and amazing. I love that can be worn on its own or layered over other polishes to give it a different look. I definitely plan on playing with this polish more.
Next up we have Lady Of The Woods.
This polish is super easy to use, opaque in two coats (as shown in my swatch) and has a generous amount of glitter. I love that this polish looks like a cream and gold polish at night (well at least it did under my lights), and that the true magic of it comes through during the day.
The Fellowship Cloak is opaque in two coats, and again really easy to use.
I applied it like I was applying a crème (no fishing or dabbing needed) and the glitter payoff was great. It’s definitely not too glitter heavy or light. And the colour combination is completely unique in my collection.
The White Rider, now how I can describe this in one word?
Awesome? Amazing? I don’t think I have the right word to describe my love for this one. This one is on the thicker side because it is jam packed with holo glitter. I thought it might be difficult to use but I was so surprised at how easy it was to apply. I think this is nearly a one coat polish but I couldn’t tell with my lighting (I was blinded by all the sparkly) so I did a second coat to be on the safe side.
You Have My Bow is yet another gorgeous polish from the Fellowship Collection.
I used three coats for my swatch to achieve opaqueness. I love the mix of glitter in here and how easy the shapes came out without having to fish for them. I used the dabbing method to apply this polish.
Next up is the Christmas collection. I was lucky enough to receive three of the four polishes from this collection. First up is Oh Holy Night.
Now this polish isn’t your typical Christmas polish, which I love. It can be worn any time of the year. This polish applies really nicely, and the glitter payoff is fantastic. It’s definitely not over packed or too light in that department. My swatch shows two coats.
Merry definitely screams Christmas polish to me.
It’s incredibly sparkly, easy to apply and is opaque in two coats. Love it. I can see myself using it a lot with nail art over Christmas.
The final polish I received from the Christmas collection is Sugar Plum Fairy.
I was definitely worried about this one given the amount of large glitters in there. I normally have such trouble getting them out. But not with this one. I didn’t have go fishing for anything and the colour was opaque in two coats.
Nail That Accent is definitely the collection that I am most excited about. I loved the idea of it when Theresa first mentioned it to me and these polishes did not disappoint at all. Multi Jewel is probably my favourite from this collection (maybe – it’s definitely really hard to decide).
It’s incredibly sparkly, applies easily and is opaque in two coats. I couldn’t stop staring at my nails when I wore this. Pics just don’t do it justice.
Navy is definitely another one of those polishes that pics just don’t do it justice.
It’s so sparkly and has this glow about it, which I absolutely love. I did one coat over OPI Dating A Royal and it was amazing to work with. The formula feels on the thicker side but is so easy to apply and the glitter pay off is amazing. I’m guessing this one will probably need two to three coats to be fully opaque.
Passion Pink is similar to Navy.
It has the same thicker formula that is easy to apply, great amount of glitter payoff, and has so much sparkle. Again pics just don’t do this polish the justice that it deserves. I used one coat over OPI Dim Sum Plum for my swatch, although I think in two to three coats this polish could be opaque.
And last, but certainly not least, is Violet. This happened to be the very first polish from Grace-Full that I ever tried and fell in love with. Like Passion Pink and Navy, the formula is on the thicker side but it applies like a dream with great glitter payoff. I used one coat over OPI Do You Lilac It?
Overall, I love all of the Grace-full polishes that I have tried. There is such a great mix of polishes that there is definitely something for everyone. I can’t wait until I receive the remaining polishes to complete my collection.
