So I recently discovered the new nail polish brand Cassella. They hand blend all of their nail polish in Great Britain and it is both 5 free and cruelty free. That means they aren't tested on animals and they don't contain Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, Toluene & Camphor. To launch their brand they held a giveaway over on instagram and I was one of the lucky winners! For my prize I was able to choose my favourite polish from their new collection 'X'
The collection as a whole looks absolutely gorgeous I have to say! It consists of 6 pastel polishes; white, yellow, orange, pink, blue and green. Of course I chose the pastel blue because I am obsessed with pastel/powder blue at the moment!
So here is the polish:
How cute is the note they sent too!? So sweet! It was a really nice touch :)
I love the simplicity of the polish. The shape is similar to Nails Inc bottles but I really love the minimalistic logo.
Anyway onto the nail art I created:
I thought this colour would be perfect with daisy style flowers and I remembered a mani by +la paillette frondeuse I had been dying to recreate. Therefore, this seemed the perfect opportunity!
- Cassella Bleu You Away £8 from Cassella.
- OPI Bubble Bath £14.95 in a set along with Alpine Snow (£7.95 to buy alone) from Nailpolishdirect.
- China Glaze White on White (I received in my July Nailbox UK) £2.95 from Nailpolish.co.uk
- Gold studs £3.19 from Bornprettystore.
- Dotting tool/cleanup brush from Joliepolish.
- Midi Rings both from Accessorize.
So on first impressions of the polish it was a little thicker than most others I am use to although it was still a creamy formula. Apart from it being a little more unusual in consistency it applied nice and smoothly and I've wondered whether it may be a polish that will stamp due to the consistency (I'll investigate and report back!). It was fully opaque in just two coats and I added top coat to finish.
So that's it!
I really really love this polish it is such a pretty pastel blue and was opaque in 2 coats. I really like this design too although my daisies are a little wonky but oh well!
What do you guys think?
