Wild Thang

Today I'm showing you a relatively new brand, 2 Sisters Cosmetics. I was lucky enough to win a giveaway hosted by them, and then even more lucky when they graciously offered to send mine out specially when I realised they only shipped in America (And they realised they forgot to mention that, LOL). I got 4 colours to try out, and Wild Thang called to me and my lack of dark greens- especially dark green crimes. I was a little disappointed when this arrived and I reallied that it was a teal. Luckily (I think...) it leans way more blue in the bottle than it does on the nail. This was two, easy, nice drying, naturally shiny coats. No topcoat. I believe this is pretty true to life, except my fingers turned out exceptionally red. They do not look like that! And the pictures are indoors.
Also, may I add, I think the bottle and logo are adorable. I am always fond of bottles that don't copy OPI and/or don't look incredibly cookie cutter.

UPDATE: Sorry about the pictures! Eek! No ideas why they didn't download the first time.

Loch Ness Mystery

Let me start off this post by saying, I'm not a hippie when it comes to my polishes. I slather on formeldyde and camphor and other terrible thing to get that pretty colour on my nails. But with that said, I was really exited about getting to try Scotch Naturals, a water based, chemical-free, cruelty-free nail polish. I had my worries at first, did any of you have those kiddie nail polishes that were water based, but never showed up or dried? This was not the case with Scotch Naturals, it only took two easy coats, but if I wasn't taking pictures, one would have been fine. It dried quickly and it's such a gorgeous colour! These photos didn't show up colour accuratly though, in real life this is much less blue and much brighter. The last picture is the most colour accurate. The corner of the bottle in the first picture is pretty acurate too.
The best part of this is that you don't get the smell, though, I love it, and so does Blue.

An English, Indian Ocean.

I figured my first swatch should be my favourite colour. Only problem is that I don't have a favourite colour, I love all the polishes I own, or I don't own them, LOL.
However, with that said, one of the jewels of my collection is Indian Ocean; from Model's Own fabulous Beetlejuice Collection, a gorgeous polish from a wonderful friend of mine, the lovely Emma at Imagination in Colour. Model's Own is a British brand, so I was incredibly happy to be able to get this.
This is two coats layered over Joe Fresh Wave, another very pretty polish that goes with Indian Ocean perfectly. Natural light.
I loved Indian Ocean and first sight, and while some people can't stand having to layer polishes, it really doesn't matter to me. Especially when the end result is as pretty as this. The duochrome is much more visible in real life, it's quite amazing to have such a strong shift in such a light polish. This is definitely true love for me.
Price- £5.00 (for 14 ml)
Where To Buy- (international shipping)
3-Free?- Sadly not.
Cruelty-Free?- Yes.
Bottom Line- I'd love to see someone try to take this from me, it's not going anywhere!
Are you a fan of layering polishes? What's your favorite International brand?
