Saint Gill Nail Polish Swatches with Praline Et Compagnie

March 2, 2015 in Nail Art, Nails, Swatches by paulina

Hi my beautiful friends. If you follow me on social media, you might know that I have been chosen to be an ambassador of the Praline Et Compagnie. I am so excited and honored about this cooperation! Praline Et Compagnie is an online nail polish store based in Europe, which carries some amazing indie and mainstream brands, such as Delush Polish, Fun Lacquer, Dance Legend and China Glaze. Today I have two swatches of Saint Gill nail polish and a simple nail art at the end of the post.

It is the first time I am trying the Saint Gill nail polish and because I don’t know much about this brand, I didn’t know what to expect. From what I know it’s a Chinese nail polish brand and their nail polish range is quite affordable. I was quite skeptical about these polishes, but they exceeded my expectations by far! Both swatches are shown over a ridge filling base, topped with Seche Vite top coat.

Saint Gill No. 40 is a gorgeous neon coral. I was expecting a patchy formula that needed to be applied several times for a full opacity. Instead, I got an excellent creme formula that applied smoothly and only needed two coats! I was totally shocked and really amazed at this beautiful color. My camera freaked out a little bit at this bright neon. In real life, it’s an orange coral that is super bright. I love this gorgeous neon and I think it’s going to be perfect to wear in the summer!

Hi my beautiful friends. Today’s nails are made for a good cause, raising awareness of Facial Palsy. I was invited by the lovely Atima from @nailsbynemo to participate in a collaboration to raise awareness of this disease. The color of this charity is purple and I made some cute purple nails with roses as my part of this collaboration. There was a lot of talented ladies making purple nails today and if you want to know the whole list, please check the collab poster on Atima’s Instagram.

Hi my beautiful friends. I am so excited about today’s post, because we are going to talk about some gorgeous micro glitter nail polishes! I was recently contacted by Maria who is behind the amazing nail polish store, Hypnotic Polish. She asked if I wanted to test some of the polishes available in her store. She sent me three beautiful micro glitters from a Russian brand called El Corazon. I have been seeing beautiful swatches of this brand all over the internet, so I was really excited to try some out. Let’s take a look at the swatches and I will tell you more about these sparkly beauties.
