Press Sample: Bellaluna Cosmetics Bohemian Collection

***Press Sample***

Happy Sunday afternoon!!  I hope you've been enjoying your weekend ^_^  Today I've got a brand new collection to show you by Bellaluna Cosmetics!  It is called the Bohemian Collection and it is comprised of five different polishes.

Note: All swatch photos are 2 coats unless states otherwise, and have one layer of HKGirl Glisten & Glow topcoat.

First up is "Gypsy:"

Gypsy is a muted magenta polish with a strong golden shimmer and a very subtle holographic effect.

Next up is "Metanoia:"

Metanoia is a gorgeous topper packed with teal and fuchsia metallic flakies in a holographic base.  Shown above is one coat over Gypsy with no topcoat.

Next is "Sunset in Paradise:"

Sunset in Paradise is a bright orange jelly with an added orange sparkle.  This polish is the most sheer in the collection - I am wearing three coats in the photos above, and there is still some visible nail line.  A white coat base would get rid of that, and make that orange pop even more!

Next we have "Wanderlust:"

Wanderlust is a lovely baby blue with a subtle holographic shimmer and blue flakies.  

Lastly we have "Wild Child:"

Wild Child is a brilliant purple based glitter bomb packed with various gold, purple, blue, red, etc.  glitters!  

The Ups:  Nearly all of these were opaque in 2 coats!!  And the dry time was excellent - under 5 minutes.  Wanderlust had the thickest formula, but it still applied smoothly, and it evened out so very nicely.  

The Downs:  Application of Metanoia got a bit tricky sometimes when the flakies wanted to clump, but in my experience it's rare to find a flakie and glitter topper that DOESN'T do that in some way.

Overall:  I'm very impressed with this collection!!  Bellaluna is a fairly new indie, and you can tell she has made some fantastic improvements in her polishes' formulas and whatnot.  I love how unique this collection is, and how all the colors flow nicely together and just scream SUMMER!  It's really a great collection!

You can purchase the entire 15ml full-sized collection for $34.00 HERE, or you can purchase the 5ml mini size collection for $15.50 HERE.  Individuals in mini and full size are also available and you can find them through the links provided above with the swatch photos.

What do you think of this collection?  Any tickle your fancy more than the rest?
