Freckles Polish Swatches & Review

Hi everybody! I have three polishes from a brand new UK indie company, Freckles Polish, to show you today! 

"Freckles Polish is UK indie brand nail polish. Everything is designed and created by hand by Julieann Byrne. All products are made with care in small batches and are cruelty free." More information about how to buy at the end of this post!

I have one polish from the "Bridget Jones" collection, and two from the "Sprung" collection. My swatches are all with base & top coat.


"Easter Bonnet Competition" from the Sprung collection:

Easter Bonnet Competition is a pastel yellow "crelly" base with colourful glitters, including purple, green, blue and turquoise hex of different sizes. For a crelly based polish, the formula was actually very good - nicely pigmented with an even dispersion of glitters which required zero fishing or placement. I applied two coats of slightly generous thickness, and they covered my nails well with barely any hint of VNL.


"Wild Flower Meadow" from the Sprung collection:

"Wild Flower Meadow" is a clear-based glitter topper with matte pink, matte purple, blue, gold, turquoise, white and pink hex of different sizes. I chose to apply one coat over a pale, dusty green creme (Nails Inc "Holland Park Gardens"). Application was trouble free - the glitters aren't packed in too densely, but they are evenly dispersed and required zero fishing or placement.


"Nice Boys Don't Kiss Like That" from the Bridget Jones collection:

"Nice Boys Don't Kiss Like That" is a smoky greyish black shimmer base with a variety of glitters including silver holographic, red and gunmetal hex of different sizes. Before I applied this I was a little worried it would be too sheer to cover my nails and had anticipated needing three coats to cover, however it was almost entirely opaque after two fairly generous (but not by any means thick) coats so I left it there. It is still sheer enough that you can just see the glitters in the first coat through the second coat, which gives a deep, mysterious effect. The glitter dispersion is slightly more sparse than the other two polishes, but as with them it is still easy to apply and required minimal fishing.

Freckles Polish's Etsy store is open now and taking pre-orders for these three polishes and many more! You can find them here: Freckles Polish Etsy Store; you can also keep up to date on their Facebook page, Twitter, and Instagram accounts!
